Hi Lynn,

This is his test:

2015/10/13 02:00z  N0KQX-2>APY02D,WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1,qAR,N0KQX::ANSRVR   :?{02
And ANSRVR responded with an ack02 like it should followed by 21 packets showing all active groups.  While this works for APRS-IS clients, it won't work for most IGates as it will overrun the TNC buffers almost always (and maybe UI-View won't play either when trying to gate that many packets to RF, I don't know).

So Dale, ANSRVR is working and replying to your handheld.  There are too many packets for your handheld to handle (possibly) or the TNC is being overrun and so packets might be dropped.

Hope this helps.
