[aprssig] How to Send to the APRS IS

The dupe algorithm in the servers (and, I suspect, aprs.fi) is based on a 30 second -sliding- window and is individual packet-specific.  This means that, for instance, what appears to be inconsistent in your example is actually very consistent.  Packet #3 is a duplicate of packet #1 (29 seconds apart). Packet #2 does -not- replace packet #1 in the dupe check algorithm.  Packets are checked based solely on the sender callsign-SSID, the destination callsign (SSID ignored), and data without regard to later packets with different data (each packet is consider individually because that is how you prevent loops).  This is as designed and described at www.aprs-is.net
