Hi Kenny,
It seems to be a problem I've seen before...http://http (doubled).
Other than that Steve has actually given me an html script to redirect from http://dbray.no-ip.org:83/ because of his concern for site security.I'll send you a cpy of his email by snail mail.

Hi Kenny,
Yes, I'm quite impressed! I saw you were on too using the Hamspots link in the software. I started playing with it a couple of days ago. 3 contacts so far. Sicily, Lithuania and Bosnia...nothing exciting!

Hello Duncan
Malta is eluding me at the moment,must be conditions are better your way.
i will try Sim31 tomorrow,
today i have been in & out
i have made a web page to show my Sim31 contacts that are logged on HRDLog.net,
can you check the page on my site for me.
http://www.g7vja.co.uk/hrdlog.htm
with the Sim31 program you can also log too Hamradio deluxe logbook at the same time that the logging goes the HRDLog.

Your HRDLog link works fine.
I've also been playing with logbooks. I updated my Ham Radio deluxe logbook yesterday and downloaded Logger32 (again!). I used to use it as a backup, but lost it when the old pc died. I keep daily (almost!) HRD exports in my Docs and use them to keep my logs up to date.
I don't know how long it will last, but I foresee a problem with CQ-auto in SIM31 being used to bump up PSK31 contacts for various club awards. i.e start the rig in auto cq mode, go off to work for the day, come home and count the contacts!
So far I have only received less than 30% eQSL confirmations for my SIM31 contacts,but it has already upped my DMC Award count by 1!
Another problem I am trying to sort out. I have 'lost' the encrypted certificate needed by LoTW to upload my adif logs to update it.
I have asked the ARRL to help, but so far I have heard nothing from them. I have been using it to save having to send all my QSL cards over the pond to claim DXCC. So I have started again, electronically and collected 72 countries (all PSK) on the last count.
Trouble is with sunspot cycle as it is, I manage occasional contacts to North and South America, can hit UA9 but JA and VK are a bit of a pipe dream.
At leaat with SIM31 and spotters help, a better clue to propogation condx might occur.
I can remember my first contacts with VK land and ZL using a 10m sloper (dipole) with gnats power, during the solar cycle high just after my G4 arrived. C'est la vie Rolling Eyes

Hi Kenny,
No, heard nothing from Mike.
Perhaps he wants a Windows XP version rather than Linux. I think his present setup is in Windows.

I can't see what's wrong with his existing setup, it is working in the sense that I can connect from my xr32 setup to his and then out to his bpq node sfalls. I have also connected to vk land that way.
It was working when I first got my system going, whether it be in WinXP or Linux.
As far as I know, he was working at a very high level in satellite comms before retirement. ( Canadian equivalent of Director of Goonhilly) His bio is on Linkedin.
So?

GM Duncan
about four - five years ago,Myself ,Mike VE3UIL & Rod VK2DOT and a few others had a daily little net on Echolink.
we talked mainly about Xrouter and helping each other to get there xrouter working properly.
i had a link with Mike (SFALLS) but he complained about it keep dropping out
so he gave up using xrouter in favour of BPQ
now he wants to go all Linux,he can be a bit slow to reply to any questions
or answers you may send to him.
i found him hard work sometimes.
i am on Linkedin but dont use it.

i still have xr32 links with VK2DOT,VE2PKT &ZL2BAU without any connection problems.

at the moment i am putting together a Win7 PC and setting up my UIView32 again, and will drop Linbpq at sometime,it still does not really work for me as a BBS program and the APRS has very limited functions.

when i get UIView32 working again it will have so of the addon programs
ui-path
networka
heard.txt
digiby.txt
ui-webserver
ui-bbs
and what ever else comes along...hi
i will be asking you to test them for me,to make sure all is working ok.

Not a problem Kenny,
I have UI-View32 setup on the old windows machine to read the data stream on port 8001 from AGW as well as xr32 port2 on Linux Also run agw tracker on my Win10 laptop, also reading port 8001. Not usually all at the same time, although I have done.
I used most of the UI-View32 addons as well before using bpq. I don't port anything to rf, just monitor.
When you are ready to test, give me another shout.

My recent excursion into SIM31 has got me back into PSK31 as well. I still look at SIM31 for a while each day but am getting a bit fed up with the almost daily need to download a new version.
So far my best DX in psk31 on 20m has been just north of Kazakhstan to the east and Montana, USA to the west. Been using pskreporter to check on my propogation, but they seem to be the reception limits under present condx.
Which basically means that my current DXCC countries count won't go up!
Got a few new prefixes, but that's about all. eQSL tells me that I had 51 confirmed contacts in April, which is considerably more than I had in the whole of 2015. Using my 706MkIIG for MB7UEK is definitely not something I look forward to.
The xyl bought me a new pair of headphones last Christmas as I was threatening to go back to CW using the old 701 and 3 band vertical. She can't stand the racket when she is working behind me! My 3 band vertical is in fact a Cushcraft AV5, but it withstands the ravages of winter gales as an AV3, without guys, and sits in the parasol base which is bolted to the ground and has an earth strap from one of the securing bolts to the ground lug on the antenna.
When the WX gets a little warmer I may put up a 20m dipole at right angles to the G5RV and see if I can work into Africa again.

Hi Kenny,
There is a problem with Ui-Webserver...looks like a permissions issue..ERR CONNECTION REFUSED.

All your other links are working fine.

If I remember correctly there is a gizmo in UI-Webserver which allows you to set the port number you want to use. Probably in the Ui-View32 Help, Ui-Webserver.
Has something to do with a little red icon at the bottom of the screen. 8080 or 8081 sounds right.
I also found the Ui-View Schedular very useful for moving data between networked machines.

Hi Duncan
the ui-webserver works ok from here via gb7cow.dyndns.org:8181
maybe i did not have it turned on
maybe thats why you got the ERR
i will leave it on today until i go out which will be about 15:00
my Son wants to borrow my lawnmower.

had the Nod from Steve Morton about AROS - Ofcom
they are watching APRS Stations that are in breach of there licence terms & conditions
one being Club callsigns running Aprs stations 24/7 unsupervised (a couple of examples M1ABD & GX2FKO & G4RS)
G4RS has since applied for a NoV..
and home stations leaving there Aprs on under there own callsigns but out and about mobile. the rules is 30 minutes maximium of leaving the station unattended while away from the home QTH.
the 30 min rules (144.800) has been in operation since APRS started

Steve has emailed some of the stations,hoping to keep it all in house before AROS build up a report then they contacts he parties concerned,if they do not respond to the in house request, there report will go to Ofcom as a last resort

personaly i think its about time the hobby was bought back into line.
what some learnt getting there licence seems to have gone in one ear and out the other.

Good news from Steve re: AROS...at last the wheels are turning.

Hi Kenny,
Windmill, yes, a double dose...Sunday and Monday 14:00-17:00.
Its a pity that we can't have the sails going round at the moment. At the end of last season we got a cherry picker in and spent a day removing all the shutters.
We knew that 28 or so were in need of some attention,  by looking at them through binoculars. That in itself was not a serious problem. We repaired enough over the winter to solve that problem. Providing we have 8 courses of shutters in place at the outer end of the sails, the mill will turn in a light breeze.(Each of the sails has 56 shutters, 28 small and 28 large)
However with the shutters all off we had an opportunity to closely inspect the sail spars and discovered 2 serious splits in 2 of the 4 whips. Not only were they split, there was also evidence  of significant internal wet rot, extent unknown. So, safety considerations dictated that the sails would not turn again until the millwrights had made their own inspection. They duly arrived and thought much the same as us...they need replacing. An initial estimate put the cost of repair at around 20k. Kent County Council told us to get 3 estimates for the repair and they would set wheels in motion to get the work done.
Co-incidentally, we hosted a Fire Safety Lecture on Thursday morning, attended by reps from all 8 mills owned by KCC.
I was chatting to the rep from Cranbrook Mill where they have ongoing repairs in progress funded by KCC. Initially estimated at around 40k...but the work has come in at around 20k...so KCC might be obliging. Hopefully, before the end of the open season.
Even if the sails are not turning there is still plenty for our visitors to see.
