At the hint of darkness/weekend/bank holiday it falls over.. It is supposed to run 24/7, does not meet that very often..

WTR is not a very good system. A lot of the licences do not seem to show up & sometimes it is out of date data that is shown, also some of the frequencies are shown as thier band edge, not as centre frequency.
So it is a good starting point, but it is problematic.
Currently I am getting no local licences showing up, although I know the area I specified has half a dozen licences within that area.

Think they have to reboot it/put 50p in the slot.
So I don't think it will be back till Tuesday :sad:

Gone odd again today - virtually all the map points in my own area are missing - including my own, yet one that is on an empty property that closed down last year and was removed from WTR is back again. The very large mast near me with multiple users on it from low band to microwave links has vanished. Maybe they got zapped in the computer issue and the backup is very old?
