WA8LMF APRS Webserver Connections Upgraded To Far Higher Speed
For years, my home APRS Webservers have been running on a Comcast cable modem Internet connection that barely yielded a 500Kb/sec upload speed.
As of 1 May 2021, these servers are now using
a 100 Mb/sec up/down fiber Internet connection. People viewing
maps generated by the 11 copies of Uiview running on this server
should now experience vastly faster load times than before.
The WA8LMF UIwebserver runs on an Acer E3-111
"netbook" 11.8" "mini-laptop" running Win7-64 supporting 4
VMware virtual machines.
This netbook uses a quad-core Pentium processor with 8GB RAM and a 1TB SSD. Total power draw is 9.5 watts while supporting 11 copies of UIiview, BeaconSee (IARU beacon monitor), EchoLink and two SSTV automatic receive systems. It provides real-time views of what I am hearing off-the-air (not the Internet) in central MIchigan, on 144.39 MHz VHF, the ISS APRS digipeater on 145.825 MHz, 30 Meters HF and 60 Meters HF. The HF systems map both classic AS.25 packet APRS and PSK63/MFSK16 APRS reception on separate instances of UIview; i.e. 4 separate copies. As before
is the gateway page leading to all these mapping displays.
