I am sending my position info via APRS using the !SN! in the comment field. However, my position is not showing up on multiple applications when displaying spotter locations. Is there an issue with SpotterNetwork or is it just me?

I'm glad I stumbled upon this thread a few weeks ago. I thought something was wrong at my end. But it appears that the APRS link with SpotterNetwork is working again. I have the !SN! in the APRS Comment Beacon field and it works! Thanks for restoring this functionality.

Currently working on upgrades for the Tahoe comm systems replacing the Yaesu FTM-400 with a Kenwood TM-D710G / AvMap to keep track of APRS in real time. The !SN! APRS status beacon has not worked on SpotterNetwork for quite some time, my guess the script is no longer importing positions to SpotterNetwork from the APRS - IS server. I have used !SN! in my APRS beacon to keep track across ALL platforms including my streaming location for about a decade and has been instrumental in keeping / maintaining contact with my Emergency Management partners.
The question is: If it's not going to work anymore do I need to bother putting it in the new radio?
