Just performed a site audit, and updated some stream info etc.
ALSO Checked a number of LINKED PWS WEBSITES displaying the NWR script
MOST of those pages are NOT operable, as they are NOT synchronizing and updating with NWROrg database

To reiterate: (Thanks, CUTTY)  \:D/

NOAA WEATHER RADIO SARATOGA TEMPLATE and STAND ALONE...
NWROrg became SSL earlier this month... Your templates and stand alone aren't working correctly...
You are not be syncronizing with the main NWROrg server databases,...
You will ALSO not be loading on your website...
UNLESS YOU MAKE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES to your scripts,
KEN will be releasing an updated version soon.

Add the "S" to the link in the following lines as shown:

NWR-radios-data.php

Line 4
Code: [Select]
//Purpose: fetch and cache the https://noaaweatherradio.org/java/NWR-radio-data.js file  Line 37

I have a PM to chappelledpc since that is his site that does the work.  On my quality page, it shows that it checked the quality today.  But it also shows "most recent" and it's dated back to 9/6.  So from I can tell, it appears there is an issue with his database.  It doesn't appear to be an actual quality issue.  Nothing has changed in that respect.  It's a server side issue of some sorts.

Yes, there appears to be a comm error between QEA and NWROrg servers... we're looking at it,... probably firewall associated with the NWR move to new server and SSL activation... QRA MAY have changed IP addresses...

 ](*,)  Stars are restored.  Basically, A hung process on the QRA server had failed to save the hourly stream audio samples properly for several days, and the 7 day analysis computed 'no stars' for everybody and reported same to NWROrg... The 'star' analysis and presentation may be somewhat 'skewed' for the next 7 days as that data rebuilds....Your daily and 'real time' checks shouldn't have been affected...

Thanks for making our community project so successful!  Here on September 15 so far: 451,000 hits. ... well done PWS Community!

I've updated the NWR-radios-inc.php and NWR-radios-data.php scripts (Now at V2.01)

Thanks for finding workarounds while I was cruising the North Atlantic.

Didn't make a Million in September...
Only 991.067 Hits on the NOAA Weather Radio Org website you folks support...
Transferred over 20 GB data, and this does NOT include your stream audio data.

It ALSO does NOT include the traffic your Personal Website Synchronized page received.
or 'scraped' stream access through other websites.

Remarkable... who thought this a year and a half ago?

The September traffic was about double an average month, mostly because
of the Hurricane Peaks, and several  strong other systems. and includes hits on
both HTTPS and HTTP, as we went force HTTPS early in September.

Well Done, Stockholders!  This is your project, and it was accessed from over 30 countries,
government agencies, educational, as well as individuals... etc...

EVERYBODY gets 5 NWROrrrrrgggg Gold Stars!

Just one note, the bhsprn feed for KIH61, which also is the same feed for the wxradio.dyndns.org mount, is producing no audio.  Noted this here today while I was making my rounds around the webpage checking streams.  Figure there's a technical difficulty somewhere.
So I figured accordingly I'd note it.

Heh... I was putting my truck back together oout on the driveway last Friday, and came in the house to check a YouTube vid to ensure that I was reinstalling the airbag properly. When I went back out to the garage, there were 9 wild turkeys wandering around in there (the live kind, not the drinkin' kind, dammit).

I don't know who was more startled. Unfortunately, they fled before I could think to snap a picture...

Belated happy thanksgiving to all.  I have sadly had to take a bit of a break from typing for quite a while while my right hand healed from a serious problem wherein one of the fingers went numb.
All is well down here.  Hopefully you all haven't heard any issues with the stream.
Wanted to know that for those wondering, yes bhsprn can still receive incoming streams.  So go ahead and bring them abord.
I saw that the DesotoWX feed is sounding great on there.

One note, eventually, I can't say when yet but I will be upgrading the quality of my stream of kzz52, meaning that the radio in use will be a much better sounding one than the one I'm currently using.
Note, the feeds are down for norwood, Saint cloud and the ones which were for Minnesota on the http://goldenoaks.metacity.ga:8000 url.
My birthday is in less than 5 days counting the Monday it wil be 5 as my birthday falls on the 7th, a Friday.
Anyway, take it easy.

Community, you might be surprised who calls up your Weather Radio streams...
... background...
Khalid provides WeatheRadio Canada (EC) out of New Brunswick, which went offline for several days due to an IP failure....

While this was going on, coincidentally,
we were answering some inquiries from a Hollywood Movie producer
doing a project up in the NorthEast, and in the provinces....
.. and he casually lamented the fact that the NB feed was offline....
... and we were pleased to follow up with the below:

Wow, tremendous! Thank you,
Henry

Sorry, but I don't get why I lost my full star rating for Stillwater weather radio, since it still checks out 6 out of 6 on the live quality score page.

Same here for my WXM20 Alternate - Lincoln, NE, until this morning when the star is suddenly back. =D&gt;

As a reminder to all, Quality Star awards are given out based on the criteria below.  So, for example, your 7 day average stream availability falls below threshold due to a temporary outage, your star will go away until the stream is restored and the 7 day average availability returns to normal.

All I can guess is that recently my streaming was down for a while and it was caught by the system before I noticed it and reconnected it.

yes... streans are polled every hour for online status.. not just once a day.  The 'Quality' analysis runs once daily, simply because it takes a very long time to analyze each stream.. but 'Reliability' (strean online only) runs hourly but does NOT check for audio, or audio quality.,..... The QRA Suite tools subscription can allow a provider to do a 'quality' at any time they desire, and/ or receive an email notification after 5 hours of failure to connect to stream...

The two utilities we have listed at https://noaaweatherradio.org/quality/monitor.html can provide real-time local monitoring of server and audio.

Well to supplement the last notice, the kzz52 stream was down an awful lot a couple of days ago as our ISP was being very difficult and well, hence shall I say so too was our router.  I think I had to reset the router 5 times in almost 3 hours.
The net finally came back on but to my dismay the computer which streams the broadcasts, which by the way is an apple Mac Mini from I wanna say 2008 probably, it runs OSX 10.5, for the streams, but it was not connected to the wifi as it had timed out.  So I reconnected it and baring a few miner things it should be back on and sounding good.
Noticed, the quality monitoring accessibility is working very well accessibility wise.
Good work guys.

New feature for QRA Tools subscribers

We have implemented a new feature on the QRA Tools page that will display your most recent Quality Star status showing the data gathered for your stream for each metric the star award is based on.  If any metric is not within guidelines it will be highlighted in red. So if you don't have a star or it has gone away, you will be able to quickly see what needs to be changed or corrected.

NOTE: Available to stream providers only that subscribe to QRA Tools.  You can subscribe here: https://noaaweatherradio.org/quality/qraPOP/qraPOP.html

Please see the examples below

If you are hearing dead air on the kzz52 stream, I'm not at home right now to fix that, I was informed that some things were unplugged while I have been gone that shouldn't have been.  I'm not at home right now as I'm recovering from a miner strain of that RSV crud.
I'll fix the stream hopefully by Sunday evening.  Sorry for the delays in getting it back up.
Didn't know there was dead air till I read the stream QRA Report.
