RE: [aprsisce] Re: NWS Map Highlighting
- I am not seeing anything In the filter but I doubt I am the one to really look at it. I don't have a p/ for anything in my filter. It looks like I should add them for my local area.ALL gets every offices and I do have specifics when I click it off.I can't guarantee what I have is correct but I do see the WX alert stuff.You may have to wait as well. Also, Firenet does go offline on occasion.FredFrom: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of chuckbland

I started with the Wiki too (I saw the huge thread about the wiki and took the hint......read it!)
Our setups are fairly close. The office and file names are different. The only real difference was that you had an office of "*ALL*", plus you had "Messages Not *ALL*" checked and I did not. I changed mine to match yours.
Was there anything out of whack in the filter spec?

- Of course, the weather that was generating all the alerts went away, so it took a while to get more alerts.
I have put together a zip file of screen shots of my configuration, highlighted shapes, and messages captured from the packet log.
