Probably only if I change the SOLAR1 from an object to a true station 
posit and send the theoretical message from SOLAR1, preferably just 
before a position update.  I suspect that the APRS-IS servers don't 
forward the message "courtesy posit" for objects, but only actual source 
stations.

I'll give it some thought, but it's really a moot point until they get 
their satellite data feed back online.  The plane hasn't moved or 
updated telemetry values for over 3 hours now.

I did tell them in their Twitter feed that it's awfully hard to spot an 
airplane flying if you don't have an updated location as to where it 
actually IS!
