Testing this morning shows that IRLP is now back on-line and working normally. It seems something must have happened over in the States due to Hurricane Irma to cause the outage. However, there is another Hurricane on its way so there may be problems again when it passes through.
Also, the IRLP node status page was not updated from 10.38 UTC yesterday but is now being updated OK.
Echolink continues to work normally.
