Hi! I'm EI4HQServer with IP 86.43.106.118 running Ubuntu 16.04.1 (Xenial Xerus) on ACER Aspire hardware (x2 Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80GHz CPUs & 4gB RAM) across an Eir "eFibre" ADSL broadband connection achieving about 10mB/s upload. I'm home to:

  • UPGRADE WORK (Updated 2017-12-03): A major upgrade to improve radio and data services provided by EI4HQ (Cork Harbour HD webcam, AIS data feed, ADS-B data feed, NCDXF propagation beacon monitoring and Cork Harbour Weather data) is taking place during 2017/2018. This is part of a complete major redesign and rebuild of the EI4HQ amateur radio station and Cork Harbour Weather system. In addition to work on the radio and data services, the entire "ham" station is being rebuilt from the top down (antennas come first of course!) and the Cork Harbour Weather system is undergoing a total rethink. As and of December 2017, the following work is done:

    A number of tasks are on-going: When the above work is complete, I'll be doing alot on the software side of things to enhance the radio and data services, get a new EI4HQ website and data repository online and to begin designing and developing the next iteration of Cork Harbour Weather.
