For years, the WA8LMF UIwebserver APRS map pages for HF, VHF and ISS, hosted on 
a server located on a home cable modem account,  have been accessed at the 
domain  "wa8lmf.dyndns.org", using the free dynamic DNS service provided by 
Dyn.com .

Earlier this month, Dyn announced that they are eliminating free dynamic DNS 
services, and that if you want to continue the service, it will now be $25/year.

I have now switched to http://dnsdynamic.org for the dynamic DNS service.

If you are accessing my APRS webserver pages via the gateway page at:


nothing needs to be changed.  The links on that page have already been updated.

However, if you have bookmarked the actual server pages with the maps, you will 
need to update your shortcuts.  Go to the gateway page above, follow the link 
to the desired page, and then bookmark it again, overwriting the previous 

The direct URLs to the map pages have changed as follows:
HF:            wa8lmf.dyndns.org:14439    is now    wa8lmf.dnsget.org:14439
VHF          wa8lmf.dyndns.org:14441    is now    wa8lmf.dnsget.org:14441
Satgate     wa8lmf.dyndns.org:14443    is now    wa8lmf.dnsget.org:14443

Currently (as of 20 April 2014) both DNS services work, but sometime in the 
next week or two, the "dyndns" link will go dead.
