[OZAPRS] Direwolf and satellites

I don't follow.

The purpose of the APRS-IS is to capture a copy of every APRS packet
transmitted and make it available on the APRS web pages.

There is no need to capture dupes.  In fact, without dropping the
duplicate traffic we would be just overloading the network with a ten fold
increase in nothing but dupes.

Or am I missing something.

I have been sitting watching the last satellite pass of Falconsat-3

Direwolf was dumping packets like APRS-IS does due to dupes

So UNLESS we modify dire wolf and run an Independent server

We will never truly know the packets received by a Satellite Ground

I am willing to try a multi tread TCP server

But until dire wolf does dupe checking we are not going to get anywhere
