November 20, 2022 Welcome to VE7IGP! Hey it has a website! Lots of stuff planned. Some stuff even going ;)November 23, 2022 ISS Sightings Upcoming ISS sightings has been added. POV is Burnaby BC as it's centralishNovember 25, 2022 2 letter callsign availability 2 letter call signs are at a premium in BC, IGP monitors for availabilityDecember 1, 2022 OTA APRS last heard display An experimental real-time APRS collector has been setup for this remote website to show APRS packets seen on-air from the radio. (unstable)December 5, 2022 Testing Allstar 147.555 / 441.070 Mhz Testing Allstar on 441.070 RX 147.555 TX and possibly other frequencies for cross duplex/full duplex operationJanuary 28, 2023 Happy New Year! Allstar node 580910 up on 147.555 TX / 441.075 and waiting for frequency coordination completion. Experimenting with Lily, the node's overlord. New information posted to websiteJanuary 29, 2023 Autopatch Yes, it has an autopatch! Had to upgrade to 'compiled from source' edition because ~ASL 1.4.23-9ish seems to have broken it (per community reports). Once upgraded to current dev, dialtone et al worked. Also make sure /etc/dahdi/system.conf exists. *715 for NIST WWV!February 21, 2023 APRS Notes This past weekend's windstorm has bumped the SWR up on the Ulari to ~1.3! Looking at remote views of the APRS network I am only seeing sporadic beacons from it so I am assuming its transmission system has suffered damage. I'll look out the window soonish or just swap out the Allstar antenna and take the operator offline for a bit if I'm feeling lazy. Oh, also. Some voodoo mix of KPC3, Pinpoint and/or a PK99 which was later ruled out has been rumoured to corrupt digipeating packets. We've noticed a station in Surrey doing this too.February 22, 2023 Allstar being taken offline Unfortunately with the 2 meter band being congested an 'open' frequency hasn't been easy to find. A new digital user was detected this morning on IGP's output frequency thus the node is being turned down. The experiment will continue to be operated on a different network to avoid interference.
