I’ve been beefing up the monitoring tools in findU to go with the new server. One thing I created is a measure of the packets received by findU through both the APRS-IS and CWOP networks. I was immediately surprised by a near doubling of the traffic for a period of five minutes at a time. This happens at irregular intervals spaced roughly 20-26 hours apart. A quick query of my raw data table showed a single station was responsible for the increase. In about five minutes the station sends about 20,000 packets, mostly consisting of consecutively numbered telemetry like this.

APRX28,TCPIP*,qAC,MYAPRS-1:T#987,0.0,0.1,0.0,0.0,0.0,00000000

other packets in the flood are

YB6HJE-3>APRX28,TCPIP*,qAC,MYAPRS-1::YB6HJE-3 :EQNS.0,0.005,0,0,0.005,0,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,1,0
YB6HJE-3>APRX28,TCPIP*,qAC,MYAPRS-1:!0300.08NR09904.73E&Rx-Tx iGate
YB6HJE-3>APRX28,TCPIP*,qAC,MYAPRS-1::YB6HJE-3 :PARM.Avg 10m,Avg 10m,RxPkts,IGateDropRx,TxPkts
YB6HJE-3>APRX28,TCPIP*,qAC,MYAPRS-1::YB6HJE-3 :UNIT.Rx Erlang,Tx Erlang,count/10m,count/10m,count/10m

I’ve emailed his QRZ email address twice without response. Anyone else have a way to get in touch? Even if he answers me I’m not sure what to tell him, other than STOP IT;-) Anyone ever seen anything like this?
