I am taking advantage of a day of good weather and available assistance to do some planed upgrade work on the tower above Hope Point today.
As a result of the work the G.R.I.P. Network will be down for a short time this afternoon.
One of the main tasks for today is to replace the HP-Client2 network segment with a new radio type better able to prevent packet collisions during heavy load. Those G.R.I.P. members on this secondary network segment will have an extended outage as I visit them in person in the next few days to replace their receiver equipment with the new radio type.
In the longer term I will slowly migrate some existing G.R.I.P. Members on the primary Hope-Point radio to the new equipment to eleviate network crowding on the primary network segment.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
