Northern Utah WebSDR

What's coing on with the Northern Utah WebSDR and its Internet connection?

Since it first came online, the Northern Utah WebSDR has been connected via three wireless hops using a (semi)local ISP.  Unfortunately, the connectivity to the WebSDR site had been unreliable for several weeks during June, 2019 and the ISP was unable to resolve the situation at that time.  Out of caution, we investigated alternate Internet connection options:  Being that the Northern Utah WebSDR's site is in a very rural area, it is difficult and awkward to get a good Internet connection to this system - and there are a lot of "moving parts" in doing so.

For various reasons, the "" (and "") domain(s) were tied to the ISP and it appeared that if we had to change to a different ISP that we wouldn't be able to reconfigure those domains so we established the "" domain - again out of caution.  Once we did this, we redirected the WebSDR traffic via "" so that if we had to change to a different ISP, we could do so with minimal interruption to the users.

In the intervening weeks, the situation with the ISP has improved and the need to change to a different one is less certain:  To be sure, it would be more convenient to not change to a different ISP!

The Northern Utah WebSDR has not been hacked!

Please understand that the need to redirect the WebSDR pages to this new web location (e.g. hostname) IS NOT an indication of the WebSDR system having been hacked - this redirection is completely intentional and is intended to smooth any possible transition as much as possible.  We wish we could have avoided this kludge while making this change, but it just didn't work out that way.

Our commitment to the amateur radio community:

Because it is considered to be a valuable resource for the Amateur Radio community, we have a number of volunteers who are donating time and money to keep this system on the air - now and in the future - and we are doing our very best to make sure that it will be here in the years to come!
