Re: 5/18/20 DX

To continue on this, VHF and UHF are - from Cape Cod anyway - opening to the north. Hearing Oxford ME County Sheriff on 155.070 192.8 very strong, as well as an increasing amount of Boston area UHF. No path to NYC from here tonight at this point.

5/18/20 DX

Band is wide open to New York City this morning on 470 and 476 MHz, numerous NYPD stations. I wondered about this as it often seems to happen when a tropical system is moving parallel to the US east coast. And sure enough, there it is. I'm sure it'll dissipate as the sun gets higher but for now it i...

Re: ADS-B

Thanks for this info Chris. There is now a Pro Stick Plus available that has a built-in bandpass filter for 1090 MHz. I grabbed one. I have a Pi sitting around unused so I'm going to give that a try; it'll free up the Airspy I'm using and allow me to share my data, so that's a win/win.

Re: ADS-B

I was part of the PlanePlotter network for years. It has a significant learning curve to it. All contributors have to be on the same playing field, most importantly in sync time-wise, for it to work properly. There were always those that were not and it yielded some less than desired results. To wat...

Wiki to Logbook Project

Hello, I have begun a long term project to copy data from the Wiki into the SNE Logbook in the hopes of providing another quick search option for users. Police and Fire entries for all counties in Massachusetts are added. Entries that show dates of 5/5/20 and 5/7/20 are the imports. As this logbook ...

ADS-B

I had time to get my old ADS-B antenna back up this weekend. I am using it with an Airspy feeding the ADSBSpy program and then to Virtual Radar Server. It works very nicely. It appears there is a little bit more military activity in full ADS-B now than there used to be. It's been a few years since I...

Did this new import include FCC allocated "MC" marine frequencies/licenses? I believe I asked this same question 1 year ago on the last update, and at that time you didn't include marine freqs.?. just wondering.
It has always been exclusive to Private Land Mobile licenses.

Re: Update Issues

Will there be a 'new posts" and "unread posts" link at the top of the forum? Added a workaround for this. All registered users will now see "New Posts" and "Unread Posts" on the content menu on the left of the screen near the top. This will be accessible from all forum pages as well as from the por...

I'm trying to remember if there was one before. I've always used the "User Menu" on the main portal page for that.

I thought it was secure. We'll check into it. I think we're done for the night and will regroup tomorrow. I don't know if this is an issue or not, I never really noticed it before.

To my knowledge it's a requirement. But when you put in your old password it allows you to go forward and update it painlessly.

I found a way to fix the screen width. If anyone is seeing any anomalies with this please advise. It should adjust to the width of your screen/browser.

Ok, board style is fixed. Found another broken link on the RISCON page. The link to the ALL TALK GROUPS page , it just brings up a blank page.

Re: Update Issues

I just found out that the new portal does not work fully with anything but the default phpbb skins, so I defaulted to them and it seems fine. Try it and let us know please.

Yes, I know I need to fix the SNE logo. Workin' on it!
