 I don't know if it was an APRS-IS Sysop or who did this but ETI-1 showed NO positions later the other night.  As of now.he still has no report on findu.com  Someone purged the record I suppose?

  Ok, here's a suggestion from a "no code tech":
How about the Igate sysops (in the area where ETI-1 is transmitting RFif nowhere else) put ETI-* in theirexclude lists (or suplists) depending on IGATE software/hardware. Blockhis packets from being
transmitted to the Internet.
If the bootlegger's packets don't make it to the APRS IS  thenwhat good is his tracking hardware?
If this guy IS legal then he'll soon be asking why his tactical call isnot making it to the APRS IS.

Beats some of the other suggestions I've read here including injectingbogus positions into the APRS IS.

Those folks sold their CB's and got no code tech licenses I think...
