      An APRS-IS connection of any sort defaults to sending NO packets until
      you supply a filter to tell it what you want. So, after telnetting to
      the server port, you need to send a logon string followed by, or
      including, a filter spec. I use the following in my testing.

      telnet 127.0.0.1 <serverport>
      user <callsign>-TS pass -1
      #filter b/<callsign>*

      (of course, put your serverport and callsign in place of <serverport>
      and <callsign>)

      Then if you hit transmit on one of your other instances (or even the
      same instance) you should see the position packet.

      Just don't try any "Me"-relative filters unless you're ready to craft a
      position packet for <callsign>-TS.

      PS. Reset easy Adam, this is not an "Intro to APRS", but more like
      Intermediate APRS. Just like most everything in Amateur Radio, there's
      always places to learn more, and hopefully, eventually, the APRSISCE/32
      Wiki will become a good guide to the various levels of features of the
      client.
