13538RE: [aprsisce] RFONLY OBJECTS
- Nov 1 6:55 AMGlad to see some local RF objects... But I do not understand why you want
to block them from showing on the APRSIS too? Never hurts to let others out
of area visit in your virtual world... Just curious.

Subject: [aprsisce] RFONLY OBJECTS
I have set some objects to be RFONLY in the path as they're local things and
imho that's the way objects should be. They should stay on RF.
One thing I noticed was that although I wasn't putting them onto the IS,
other stations were. So looking through the spec I saw that I can put
"RFONLY" in the path and that should fix it. Again, I'm getting back up to
speed on the path stuff :P
Anyways... lynn.. the one thing I did notice was that if I put it in
lowercase, then they ignored it and passed it to the IS,

But put it in uppercase (try searching for n4wkq-4) they didn't. I figure
it's just a minor thing to force paths to be upper case. That would
eliminate stupid people like me from doing lowercase paths that get ignored
because it's not "up to snuff".
I've set all my objects to RFONLY now, so hopefully they should drop off
aprs.fi..... anyone know the timeout for stuff to disappear on there ? if it
does at all?
