Because there are lots of packets every 5 seconds from GO32 that
have nothing to do with APRS.  So I wanted to filter them out,
but let the APRS status, beacons and bulletins pass to cut the
load on the APRS-IS.

I th ink GO32 is a great APRS asset.  Anywhere on the planet,
even if you are crashed into a GORGE or ravine.  If you switch
your uplink to 145.93 and switch to 9600 baud and path to VIA
4XTECH, then you will be seen at least twice a day.
