Full details on the user-defined port 14580 filter expressions here:

If you are currently using a filtered feed that is otherwise satisfactory, just 
add the symbol filter


[that's upper-case letter 'O", not number "zero"]   to the end of your current 
filter expression  to remove the blue circle WX icons from your feed.       
(The minus sign causes the server to REMOVE whatever follows from your stream, 
rather than add it.)
