If you had connected to fifth.aprs.net, you'd have received it, but 
would have been missing a bunch of the remainder of the APRS-IS. 
http://Fifth.aprs.net:14501 shows some really strange TCP throughput 
fluctuations.  I've posted to the aprs2.net support group so hopefully 
someone will notice and do whatever's necessary to restore the hole in 
the core.

I've forced a reconnect on this end and am now on second.aprs.net which 
is why you are suddenly receiving the object.  Oh, and aprs.fi draws 
multiple feeds IIRC to avoid this sort of packet loss.
