Either that or I tickled the right spot to get it to update.I was sending from OpenAPRS to my -AP client, all over IS. I expected a very quick response. I never saw one at all.Best regards,Fred

Testing via -IS or RF? This won't work over RF because your local IGate
would not have "seen" the other calls recently local and therefore won't
gate them through. If you send the message from another station in
simplex range of the My Messages station, but addressing a different one
of your -SSIDs, then you should see it.
If you're testing on -IS with APRSIS32, it should be working from OpenAPRS.

PS. And the * was literally a *. b/N7FMH* means send me packets for
all callsigns starting with N7FMH. I would have put b/N7FMH-*, but that
would exclude the -0 which is normally suppressed.
PPS. I did copy (and reply) your messages to me from OpenAPRS.
