Update – April 9th 10pm MT, The morse code generator should be back up and running again, please let me know if there are any issues. Simon, AA9PW
As many of you have noticed the online morse code generator was down, then back up briefly and now is not working again. My hosting company moved the AA9PW site from one server to another and some of the necessary code libraries required for the morse code generator were not present on the new server.
The morse code generator does have a few ‘non-standard’ moving parts behind the scenes to generate the audio file and convert it to an MP3 file that works on the web and when they move servers this does tend to cause issues. I know what needs to be reinstalled and will be working with the hosting company to get this fixed over the next few days.
Thank you for your patience while I work this out.
The General license pool for exams between July 1st 2019 and June 30th 2023 is now available on the new site. I’ve named it ‘General 2019+’ for now, I will take down the old general pool tomorrow so that folks are only using the correct pool for current exams. My apologies for taking such a long time to update the questions.
The updated site has been live for the past 6+ months and appears to be working pretty well. I am likely to sunset the current test prep scripts (that you access from the menu on the top right hand side of aa9pw.com). This will allow me to retire some of the venerable perl scripts that I’ve been using, simplify my hosting environments and enable me to focus on improving the functionality on the main site.
After a bit of messing around the Morse Code practice is pretty much up and running again. I am still working on the Newsfeeds so that section is not yet operational but I hope to get that ironed out shortly.
In the meantime, let me know if things aren’t behaving correctly and I’ll keep working on the Newsfeeds and post updates on here as things progress.
Hi there! I had a few issues on the AA9PW.com site but I’m using the opportunity to update a few things and I’m working to get things back up and running as quickly as I can.
The practice tests are up and running (see the links on the right hand side). I’m still working on the morse code practice page which is giving me a little more of a challenge but I hope to get that resolved shortly.
Please bear with me as I reassemble the rest of the pieces!
