I am connected to Tier 2 Texas and I see DSTAR traffic.

My apologies for not being clear...thought I was...

Anyhow I don't see this as a "nefarious scheme".  I see it as a change...an apparently I'm the only one who's noticed so far.

I'm just looking for a simpler way to view the info rather than build a long filter...

I now know who the author is and he's on Googlegroups and I'll post a message there.

Thanks for your comments!

 Yes, I see
 your point now and that's distinctly different from  your  first message and has a lot more  clues.  Instead of some nefarious  scheme to  rid APRS-IS feeds of DStar data it appears that the parser  is  simply behaving differently.  The DStar  stations technically have  nonstandard  SSID's (since they're not numbers).  If the parser  became  strict about parsing valid SSIDs  (meaning only an SSID of -1 through -15  or  blank which would only work in over-the-air APRS packets)  then it's  going to kill off all sorts of  stations like WinLink (som of which end  in  -WL), the DSTar repeaters (A-D), and others.  Seems like  more of an  accident than anything  planned.
