Hardware failure :(

The sysop is sad to announce that the computer that drives the Perth Gateway MB7APT-L has developed a fault, in that it no longer recognises the presence of the operating system. This means that boot-up fails.

This means of course that the Gateway will not be available until the hardware failure is remedied, by repair or replacement. Unfortunately there is no timetable* for this, but please keep an eye on this web site for updates.

Thank you.

PLEASE CHECK FOR AMENDED SCHEDULE ON A DAILY BASIS.

PLEASE NOTE THE STATION MAY BE SHUT DOWN AT SHORT NOTICE IN THE EVENT OF ELECTRICAL STORMS OR OTHER UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. 

*Normal operation means that the Gateway will be open at least during the ‘core time’ of 16:00 to 20:00 local time. On Wednesdays, if the Perth ARC is meeting, operation sometimes starts late but continues to 22:00 local time.

Up until 2014 the Gateway functioned without financial contributions from users. It will continue to be a facility that is free-of-charge. However, costs are always rising, and should anyone wish to make a voluntary contribution towards the upkeep please email the Sysop. Email details can be found on the ‘Bringing Perth to the world’ page.
