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
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.
