No, these older ports don't support filtering. The whole point was that until
port 14580 arrived, all APRS server ports were predefined and fixed. You just
logged into a specific port number and took what was offered.
Port 14580 was a major innovation in that for the first time, the user could
customize the feed.
You can see what ports are offered by any given server by going to
servername:14501 which loads the status page for that server. For example:
http://second.aprs.net:14501 or http://socal.aprs2.net:14501
In addition to a list of all the users/igates currently connected to the
server, you will usually also see a list of all the ports offered.
