Re: Recent outages

Yep. I host a fair bit of stuff on VPSes and other public cloud but the forum is working fine self hosted so I'm happy with it for now.

It's getting harder to find English language content on SW but this'll get you started.

Re: Guide to decoding POCSAG on Linux

Nice.
2400 baud doesn't appear to be used on Australian networks so you'd get a bit of a performance boost by not having Multimon try to decode it.

Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

Thanks. Yep, my virtual server host has been suffering network issues today. I've lodged support tickets, now just have to wait for them to fix it.

Use http://stream.warsug.info:8000
That way I can change DNS records as required to point to a working server.
