Thanks - my earlier email crossed w/ your earlier reply to Lynn's.
I am aware of the server/port landing pages - quite handy tool for debugging/determining submit/drop/dupe/errors details; . I will give the 30min dump port a try later today.
This is good stuff - thanks for the pointer

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.
