21144Fwd: [aprssig] Temporary UI-NWS WX Warning Fix
- Dec 1, 2012Hi Steve,
I switched back to Firenet from noam2 yesterday, and I appear to be getting the NWS stuff (the whole state seems covered by one form of advisory or another). But I didn't do anything with the filters.
I'm using Lynn's APRSIS32; does it do this automatically, or am I really not seeing what I think I'm seeing?

If you have been using firenet.us:14580 to receive the US National Weather Service advisories, watches and warnings in UIview or other APRS programs, you may have noticed that the colored warning zone overlays stopped working a few days ago.
The problem is that the firenet servers were recently upgraded to JavAPRS server. Apparently the interpreter for the filter command t/n which causes the NWS alerts to be sent to you was broken in the process.
To restore the NWS feed functionality, you need to add
to whatever filter expression you are already using.
Hopefully, the t/n filter in JavAPRS Server 4.0 will be fixed shortly.
Kudos to Lynn KJ4ERJ for figuring out what was going on!
