When/if that happens again, check http://firenet.us:14501/ and 
particularly the outbound connections section.  Every now and then I've 
seen firenet.us connect to an upstream CWOP server instead of one of the 
core APRS-IS servers.  I suspect that gets a lot more weather stations 
than you're used to seeing.

But then again, it could be the software version upgrade.

Port 10152 is also still not accepting connections.  It fails with an 
error 10152 (net reset) after a long timeout.  Port 14580 connections 
are quickly accepted from the same client.  This is the behavior of a 
port that is not open and is being blocked (ignored) at a firewall.
