I have been forced to move GB7MBC to a remote host due to it’s popularity 🙂 This of course means that I have additional overheads to pay. If you could find your way, as a user of the cluster to send a small donation, it would be very much appreciated.
The cluster and website are now on a new server. It is going to take me a while to get everything working but we will get there. many thanks for your patience during this time.
Nige (G7CNF) has set up a site dedicated to fighting the PLT and homeplug threat in the UK. The site is excellent and can be found at http://plt.g7cnf.me.uk/. This is a welcome addition to the UKQRM site and mailing list in the fight against these horrendous devices.
Apologies for the downtime you have been experiencing over the last few days. Moving the cluster to a new and better machine coincided with some weird network problems. There may still be some small downtime while I install updates etc but on the whole, everything should be back to normal again. Thanks for your patience.
Firstly my sincere apologies for the downtime. The server machine (just over a year old) died. I suspect either the CPU or the motherboard. I have borrowed an old machine off a friend and just about got everything working again but it looks like I am going to have to buy a new machine! Now would be a good time to donate to the cause using the form on the right. Anything you can spare would be great so I can get the system working again fully.
Today both our routers failed and we had to buy and install a new one. This has meant that we have had some downtime on the cluster today. Sorry for any inconvenience and hopefully things should be back to normal now.
Due to the success of the general iPhone cluster page, I have added one specifically for VHF. It also covers 70cm. You can find this at…
I hope you enjoy it.
More and more people are using the Internet mobile. I have created a webcluster specifically for this. Currently, it is designed to fit the iPhone but it will also work on Android (at least on the G1) and I believe on the Nokia N95.
Please note that this is not an iPhone app but it *is* designed for the iPhone and iPod touch. It does work on other mobiles and improvements will come along for that. If you save it to your home screen, it has a custom icon so it feels like an app 🙂 There are filters for HF, VHF, Digital, IOTA and ALL. You can also tap on a dx callsign and it will take you to the qrz entry for that DX.
The refresh is once a minute which is the maximum I can do. I would be happy to answer any questions on it. If you have any comments, feel free to add them 🙂
My thanks go to Stan, 9H1LO and especially to Roberto, EA2RY for their help and encouragement.
We now have a live Twitter feed. This takes information from many DX sites and updates them to bring you news on DXPeditions, IOTA activations etc. You can see the feed on the right of the website. You can also follow the Twitter feed by using your twtter client or browser. The username is gb7mbc.
To get to it, either click on the header of the twitter window to the right or go to..
I hope you find it useful. Please leave us comments if you like it or have any ideas how it could be improved.
I have had a couple of people contact me about this issue recently. Microsoft in their wisdom have decided that Internet Explorer 7 and 8 will not support the telnet protocol. If you are using IE7 or IE8 the chances are you will not be able to connect to the cluster using the links at the side. You may get a message saying that your browser cannot find the page. If you get this, use another browser such as Firefox or Google Chrome. You can get these and many more useful tools at http://www.filehippo.com
Please be aware that Vista does not natively support telnet either. However, you can add a telnet client such as putty which is very good.
