The HIRSC Team - Hawaii Island is announcing that they will be conducting major updates to the computer decoding software (SDRTrunk) and equipment supporting the current West Hawaii Scanner Feed, which will result in a prolonged outage on the evening of Monday, September, 7th, 2020.
Monday evenings outage will affect both the Broadcastify Calls (Node 200: Moanuiahea Site) and traditional scanner feed (open to the public).
The prolonged outage is necessary to allow the team to successfully complete the installation of software updates recently released and also complete computer operating software updates as well.
Antenna Maintenance/repositioning work will take place on Monday, however, will be conducted during the day and will not affect the scanner feed/not require the feed to go offline.
The outage will occur from the following time period:
Monday evening from 9:30 pm to 11:30 pm
Also during that time period, HIRSC Team on Hawaii Island will be testing other sites around the Island (Hilo and Puna) in preparation to connect new sites to the Broadcastify Calls Platform (coming in the next few months).
The HIRSC Team has no plans to add a new traditional feed for the East Hawaii area on Broadcastify as that is already being covered by another individual and additions will be made to Broadcastify Calls Platform only.
Those interested in the software (SDRTrunk) the HIRSC Team uses, please message for more details and how to get it setup.
