Re: New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

My new post count is now up to 26 posts (since I last logged out and back on on 6/16), so now it covers two pages.

Re: New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

I am experiencing the same thing as Bill. Clicking "mark forums read" did not solve the "problem". I like seeing the old threads that I have already read, so I don't consider this a problem (as long as the post list doesn't get too long). The problem isn't that posts are showing up as unread, just t...

Worcester P25 voted ham repeater

From https://www.facebook.com/WorcEmCommTeam/posts/1318033291602951 The 146.48 repeater is now voted P25 mixed mode! Today WECT members John, N2YHK, Eric, N7ECM, and I migrated the voter for the 146.48 repeater to a Motorola ASTRO-TAC 3000. In addition to the above people, I’d like to thank WECT mem...

They just released a new version. I'm very happy with the old version descussed above. The F connector is great, it is sturdy and does not fall out or come loose even though my SDR is installed in a mobile setting.

Ok, thanks.

I have tried it in the past but never used all 4 decimal places which looks like it was causing me issues. I've also been using quotes which doesn't show a preview of the page (like this).

The main advantage to the logbook is that it's very easy to search. If there were an easy way to search the wiki, the logbook would not be needed. I'd vote for the second option for the logbook. I don't necessarily need the most accurate info when I am searching the logbook, I have the wiki for that...

I guess I just figured out the last couple of days that even when you post an incident it doesn't end up here on the board as well as wherever else it goes.

8/3 late night dx

I'm getting MSP zone 4 up here in Worcester with an antenna setup that is pretty bad at 800MHz. I'm not searching so I'm not sure what else is out there.

I like the "blackened" skin, and also the fact that it is the correct width for my screen. The only complaint that I have is that when I reply to a thread, the text box is still white, so I have a bright white box in the middle of the dark screen.

Scannercast takes the place of simplecast/edcast/oddcast. You don't need both.

RR allows the use of alternate ports (5700 or something like that) but I do not know how to do it. That might be a question for the radoreference forum.

I tried to replicate your error and it took a lot. The only lines that cause the "cannot connect to encoder" error are the ICECAST_HOST and ICECAST_PORT. I think the error is with your internet connection rather than the config file. Make sure port 80 isn't blocked in your router. When you go to the...

You only need scannercast, serproxy, and talkgroup monitor. Icecast (or some equivalent) is running on the radioreference servers. Scannercast is set to "no tags".

Is talkgroup monitor at least communicating with the scanner fine? That part should all be the same as in the tutorial.
