[OZAPRS] Filtering out bushfires

Hi Liz,

Out of interest are they BFA or BFU objects?

BFU means bushfire under control, you could write a APRS-IS filter to exclude these objects, I think...

If the crew is not putting in the under control status update to RFS, then that isn't easily stopped on APRS. I'd need to do that filtering on WXSVR, but there is no way to really pick the difference between a fire that has not been updated by the incident controller with RFS, or a big job that is not yet under control (e.g. a bigger incident requiring days to extinguish and get it under control).

Subject: [OZAPRS] Filtering out bushfires

I'd like to filter out bushfires where there is no change in the packet
after a time period.
The locals are a bit slack with the paperwork and "fires" are still
active days after they are gone.
So I'd like some ideas on how to filter out these sort of packets from
