Today, we began the process of moving Icom repeaters and hotspot reflectors to the new NXcore server. We anticipate it will take a few weeks to get everyone migrated. When that’s done, the old server will be decommissioned. At the present time, we are targeting a June 30 shutdown date for the current server, but that date remains flexible.
Although this doesn’t require changes for end users (repeater or hotspot users), it does require an important change for repeater owners, reflector owners, or admins of other NXCore servers that link to us. You will need to update your system’s IP settings to ensure continued connectivity to the network. Please send a message to KD4ACG at firstname.lastname@example.org, at your earliest opportunity. Since the move requires changes on both ends, we’ll work to schedule a time to migrate your system to the new server, with minimal disruption.
Keep in mind, during this transition phase, both the old and new servers are connected. That means, whether a system has moved or not, all users still have access to all talkgroups.
These changes apply to Icom repeaters and all reflectors. At the present time, the Kenwood system will remain the same. We will move that one at a later date.
This move enables us to provide NXDN linking for many more years to come.
