WX4NHC Communications Test – Saturday May 31st, 2014 – Change in Echolink Conference/IRLP Reflector Location
Hello to all..
A reminder that the WX4NHC Communications Test will be Saturday May 31st, 2014. WX4NHC, the Amateur Radio Station at the National Hurricane Center, will be on Echolink/IRLP from 4 PM EDT (2000 UTC)-600 PM EDT (2200 UTC). The *WX-TALK* Echolink conference node: 7203/IRLP 9219 system had a server failure late last week. The reflector is being ‘rebuilt’ and originally it appeared the system may be ready for the Communications Test but that is no longer the case.
Given the outage of *WX-TALK*/IRLP 9219 system, per our procedures, we will use the *VKEMCOMM* Echolink conference node: 270177/IRLP 9508 for the WX4NHC Communications Test on Saturday May 31st. Please make a note of this change and connect to this system for the Communications Test.
Also, as we move forward to our weekly VoIP Hurricane Prep Nets, we will use the *VKECOMM*/IRLP 9508 system if the *WX-TALK*/IRLP 9219 system remains down. We expect to have the system back up and running within the next couple of weeks depending on the schedules of those that are working on the rebuild of the reflector.
We appreciate everyone’s flexibility in making this change for the WX4NHC Communications Test and if necessary for the weekly VoIP Hurricane Prep Nets. Thanks to all for their continued support of the VoIP Hurricane Net!
Director of Operations for the VoIP Hurricane Net
