Website update

Submitted by VE1DRU on Thu, 01/24/2019 - 19:28

I've moved the web site from using WordPress, to using Drupal. Drupal is more in the spirit of Amateur Radio anyway, in the way that it's community driven. As a programmer, I find drupal easier to work with as well.

With the new site:

  • added user accounts
  • users can add their own link stations or repeaters to the site's listings
  • Full content rewrite

That's it, that's all. 73

Network update

Submitted by VE1DRU on Sat, 12/22/2018 - 21:26

I’m currently moving the 420 network servers over to a high availability computer network. This way, all the servers will have real-time backup servers, ready to take up the slack if the main server goes off-line.

While copying some files, I noticed that I installed thebridge on Nov 16, 2018 @ 14:43 UTC. That was the first server we had, so that would be the official beginning of the 420 radio network.

Since that time, we’ve setup a dstar reflector, and linked it to the echolink conference *420* via WL4DX-L, and the same thing on DMR via VE1KLR-L.
