KPH Kiwis down?

I've had a few inquiries as to why the KPH Kiwis are down (http://kphsdr.com:8073) The last status update on kiwisdr.com was June 15 00:15Z. Power cut to save some money during park facility closures?

  • Actually, I think the power has been on the whole time. The issue seems to be a poor quality router that loses its way and no one having access to help it out. There may be plans for a replacement but there is perhaps a little politics in that one. Perhaps Rob may be able to elaborate.

    I'm sure you're right. The politics that has to be endured to continue to enjoy the relative free reign of such a facility has to be monumental --- particularly where they are.


    Fortunately the quad is running again.

  • The Park Service has denied us volunteers access to the KPH facility since the start of Covid last spring. While that is annoying I am sympathetic to their situation. If they were to grant exceptions to one set of citizens, then other would want the same privileges.

    As soon as I am allowed, I will go out there and restore operation. Look for KPH WSPR spots on http://jimlill.com/today_int.html to learn when that happens
