The APRS to SpotterNetwork gateway seems to be intermittent. I have "!SN!" in my APRS comment, but it seems like I rarely see my dot showing up on RadarScope. Has anyone else been reporting an issue?

No, that shouldn't matter. We're seeing that our APRS feed isn't nearly as stable as it used to be and so we have a 'watcher' to see when data stops flowing that it then gives it a boot again. This is a patch as we continue to explore a real solution.

I may have spoken too soon. It seems to be picking up from the APRS network when I’m using APRSDroid on my phone. But when I switch to an RF network, it’s not getting picked up. Both routes are visible on APRS.fi.

Hi Keith,
You may want to take a look again as we've done some work on this and it looks to be more stable. Let us know!
Still no joy with it getting through on the RF side. I'm using WD9GET-5 if you want to see my data. My APRS position is showing up on APRS.fi, but no SN dot on RadarScope or WeatherTap. I'll be out mobile later today, so I'll give it a more thorough test.

Thanks for the continued work!
