    Perhaps I'm the only one, and maybe this has already been covered, but does the site seem extremely slow lately? Part of the fun of this site (other that the wealth of information) was the fact that I could come in and buzz through the posts and catch up on my reading. Now, I spend WAY more time waiting for pages to load than I do reading, and I generally get tired of waiting long before I've got to see all the new stuff.

    Maybe it is just me, but it seems to be the same whether I'm at work or home, and I've got a fairly good connection at home (14+Mbps cable).

    I'm not trying to complain as much as I am just curious if anyone else notices what I'm talking about. Is there something we can do? Do we need to pool some $$$? How much would it cost per year to ramp this thing up?

    Just wondering.

    I too have noticed since last week, after I couldn't get on the site cause it was not responding, that the post's are alot slower loading. I also thought it was my computer but other sites load as normal for my computer.
    Just my input. I still enjoy this site more than any other. As a matter of
    fact it has become addictive!

    y'all might look for a thread on this the other day. Jeff is working on the issue, but is afraid the problem resides with the host. Just one of the down sides to a popular site! It'll get better, I have no doubt.

    Good to hear Geek... I must have missed that bit of info.

    Bunky, yes I am a ham. I'll be in the WPX contest this weekend as NY5E. How about you?

    The site seems a bit more snappy today.

    Whose rig are you talking about Bob? I want to see.
  11. You guys really call yourself hams? It has to be a cool hobby (ham radio) if the word ham is involved..LOL [​IMG]

    Yeah, "ham" radio is how it has been referred to for a long time... but there are several versions of where that term came from.

    I am here most every day, although the site doesn't remember me so I don't always take the time to log in. Today is the first time that I have noticed the slowness problem, I almost gave up by the time the site finally came up. Thanks for the post, at least it answered my questioms. [​IMG]

    Well, I guess I spoke too soon... things have slowed back down quite a bit, and I am even getting "page cannot be displayed" messages from time to time.

    Gotcha... I was wondering what you meant by 807s. I was thinking "dang, I have 811s in my linear, is that what he's talking about? Besides, how would he know that?" LOL 807s and 813s sound more like CB slang to me, but maybe just something I missed out on.

    Oh, by the way, I have those 813s taken care of too. [​IMG]
