Site moved to new hosting
| |

The site has just been moved to new hosting and it seems to be taking a while for the SSL certificate to become updated. Hopefully this problem should resolve itself in the next 24 hours.   Mark 2W0YMS alerted me that the permalinks were not working on the new hosting, so I’ve re-saved the permalinks settings and they seem to be working again now.   The site seems to be more responsive, as its … Read More

Some progress with the OpenGD77 Tier 2 functionality
| |

Now that the Hotspot mode functionality is relatively stable, I’ve switched my efforts to supporting DMR Tier 2 in the OpenGD77 firmware. Kai (DG4KLU) told me a couple of months ago, that he had been working on the Tier 2 functionality, but was unable to get it to work correctly, and that he no longer had any spare time to work on the OpenGD77 firmware.
