[wxsig] Awfully quiet

Dave,

This is a little off topic but if you use UIView it has the ability to
set a "Filter" when you connect to the server.  Using a filter, the
server will only send you data that is in the area you specify (which
can just be a few miles).  This dramatically reduces the amount of data
that comes to you and makes IGating via dial-up or low bandwidth a real
possibility. The side benefit is that it reduces the about of data that
the sever needs to send out.  You just need to connect to a different
port on the server (port that accepts filters) and specify the lat/lon
and radius for the area you want to see.  You specify this on the page
where you configure the APRS connection.

When you get UIView up and running go to the help file and look up
"Filters".
