What's up with the F.C.C. ULS Advanced Database (part 90)??????
As of yesterday morning, I've tried to reach the F.C.C. Advanced ULS database for some Part 90 information. Each time, the sign pops up saying the website has timed out. (?????) As of 6:30 CDST (2330 Zulu) it still giving me the same message.
You'd think that with ALL that tax money the government gets, they could take some from a small, 'pork-barrel' project and fund the F.C.C. with better database storage and super fast processors. But, it seems like they are using a Commodore 64, .
I didn't see any notice they would be shut down for repairs this weekend, but they should not need to if a duplicate system were in place.
Has anyone had this trouble as well?
The FCC ULS has been down all weekend. I don't know if they are working on the system or what. I suspect that it will be back around 6:00 AM tomorrow.
Supposedly went down for scheduled maintenance at midnight EDT for scheduled maintenance.
They were going to be back up at 3am (must have hit a snag)
I thought I could get rich in the stock market by investing in
Viagra, Geritol, And Ginseng but my stocks didn't rise to the occasion.
Hell, I figured that there was always somebody somewhere either trying to
Get it up
Get it going
Trying to remember what to do with it.

Time doesn't heal all wounds. It just makes them more bearable.
Your Government rant was noted. The FCC phone still works though. I was told that the database is offline until tomorrow.

You will be on your own dealing with the FCC, therefore.
Hope that helps.

Still and all, they should have a "back-up system" so when they take one down, they can bring another on on-line immediately to take up the slack. Then, if they develop a "problem" in maintainence, they can let the back-up run until the other is fixed. It's just the good practice of the 8'p's - Prior Poperly prepared preperations prevents pittyfuly poor performance.
On my Part 90 (Public Safety) spreadsheet, I've already gotten 109 of the Texas Counties that will be utilized in severe wx situations. I've gotten a lot
of the Louisiana parishes as well. I'm working on the Arkanss counties and when I'm thru, I'll go back to the Louisiana parishes then Oklahoma Counties,
then Mississippi Counties. Some how I've managed to misplacec the e-mail addresses of the coordinators for several of the large city Skywarn groups.
So if you happen to know of anyone living in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Paris,
Austin, Texas areas I'd appreciate finding out. Since I've added some more
areas, I could certainly use, Lafayette, Alexandria, Nachitoches, Baton Rouge,
Louisiana; Jackson & Greenville, Mississippi; Pine Bluff, Little Rock & Fort Smith, Arkansas, Tulsa & Idabel, Oklahoma and then back to Dallas/Fort Worth.
If need be we could communicate on say a J-65 digital mode as well as ssb
on HF. I'll have to ask whick band would be the overall best as the sunspot
cycle rises and falls over the next 11 years.
Well, that's all the news that's fit to be printed, LOL! At ease, smoke 'em if
you got 'em.
