Even through the Dayton Hamvention doesn't start until Friday, the arrivals 
have begun.

My live Dayton area UIwebserver map at

     <http://WA8LMF.net/map>

has been pretty quiet the last three or four days. It has now lit up in the 
last two hours or so with lots of out-of-towners.

Note that this map is being generated from about 250 miles away via the APRS-IS 
feed only filtered for the Dayton area; i.e.not off-the-air via RF.  As a 
result, there may be even more activity that isn't showing,  due to the local 
igates being overloaded by the traffic.

I've been tryng to PING the mobiles I see arriving. Less than 1 in 10 are 
responding.  The rest are apparently dumb (or should I say DEAF) transmit-only 
trackers.
