I’m currently moving the 420 network servers over to a high availability computer network. This way, all the servers will have real-time backup servers, ready to take up the slack if the main server goes off-line.

While copying some files, I noticed that I installed thebridge on Nov 16, 2018 @ 14:43 UTC. That was the first server we had, so that would be the official beginning of the 420 radio network.

Since that time, we’ve setup a dstar reflector, and linked it to the echolink conference *420* via WL4DX-L, and the same thing on DMR via VE1KLR-L.

There’s been major work on the website, including a new Network Monitor. It will allow you to see all the stations on the network, and how they’re connected. I’ll be adding a lot more features to that soon.

It’s all sounding really good, and it’s a blast setting it all up.
