Node 5302 short outage

The repeater’s internet linking Node (5302) went offline last night (7th October) due to a failed Operating System upgrade.

We’re pleased to report the fault has been fixed and everything is now running normally.

In addition, it was noticed that the Node’s timeout had been accidentally set too short. This has also been corrected. The timeout is now back to the default setting of four minutes.

The Stream returns on-line

Apologies to all world-wide Stream and Shoutcast.com listeners for the lengthy delay in resolving what turned out to be several complicated problems. Daily these were worked on with seemingly more confusing and complicated answers. Now, a brand new hi-spec server is being used and the faults reduced to an acceptable level for the moment. There will be tweaking going on over the immediate  future and so there will be short periods of downtime.

Please read the The Stream page for the new ip address and also new links for using your Winamp, Media Player, Real Player and QuickTime Players.

IRLP and Echolink Interlinking down

Failure of a vital item of equipment in the Interlinking section means that both IRLP and Echolink Interlinking is not available at present. Unfortunately this will continue for the next couple of days until the equipment can either be serviced or swapped out.

Apologies to both locals and distant users who have regular QSOs using IRLP or Echolink through GB3OA.

The Shoutcast Stream is unaffected.
