I agree.  That saturation of objects in Maryland clutters the channel.
Sure, OK wehn something
is going on that needs the infol,  But just dumping objects like that
clutters the channel so that
I loose interest in watching for "something REAL time" happening.  Bob

I'd hope that each local APRS area has a station beaconing a gob of local points of interest, and static points of interest are certainly unimportant enough that I'd hope for them to all be dumped as a single packet blast on the air.

I ended up blocking them so I don't see them anymore except for in my mobile where I can see them there (and a few objects that are being sent out but are located >1000 miles away?).  Oh, and there are duplicate objects from different stations.  So, yes, while I agree that APRS is designed for local situational awareness, this ain't it.
