APRS.fi filter trick (how to eliminate non RF or APRS stations)

Take a look at my filter list, I finally figured out how to eliminate the APRSDroid type stations that use commercial IP networks (cell towers) to link in on the map. This filter also removes the CWOP type weather stations *BUT* still shows ham radio weather stations. (So Dave and Reuben's stations still show). The trick was to have an 'inclusive' filter set to filter part of the path WIDE.
 
Perhaps seeing these type stations don't bother you, but I am seemingly looking at RF and station/digi performance and they tend to clutter the map a bit. Please pass to anyone that this may help. John and Sean, please post this to your area web pages.
 
Access this list with the filter icon:  on the right side of the page.
 
Add filters with the 'plus' '  +  ' symbol at the bottom as shown.
 
Don't forget to save your settings by selecting "Prferences - My account" under "Other Views" section, then check the box that says "Save current map view as default view" as shown here:
