I recently started having issues with locators on my maps. I have been using APRS with sartopo for about 8 months, and now locators that have been working are no longer showing up. Has there been recent changes? I've tried a few different callsigns with operators on my team with negative results.

    How recently?

    Is this sartopo.com via APRS-IS, or SARTopo Offline via a local TNC?

    As far as I can tell. At least since last Friday 10/19. Using sartopo.com
    with APRS-IS and via conventional radio transmission.

    APRS locators are working again.

    Yep. I don't know what happened as I don't have a lot of logging around it and the APRS-IS connection is supposed to automatically reset if something goes wrong, but things appeared hung up somehow. A server reboot last night fixed it, wanted to make sure it was still running this morning before proclaiming victory though.
