Decommissioning of the Brandmeister 3101 Server

Post by KE7FNS »

Brandmeister has announced that the 3101 New York Master is going to be decommissioned on Dec 1st, 2021.

In preparation Andy has currently removed the ability to select 3101 in the master dropdown listing. He has also automatically moved users that previously selected 3101 to 3102 which is Dallas, Texas.

Users that were on 3101 could also move to 3104 which is Chicago, Illinois if they would like.

If you notice things are not quite working the way they used to, the move could be the cause of it. Just key up the TG you would like to monitor and things should be back to normal operation.

If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

The best way for folks in the USA to select a master is to ping the three available (3102, 3103 & 3104) and to choose the one with the fastest response time (the smallest number).

For example, here is my ping of 3104:

$ ping -c 5
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=1 ttl=59 time=17.5 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=2 ttl=59 time=18.4 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=3 ttl=59 time=17.6 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=4 ttl=59 time=18.5 ms
64 bytes from ( icmp_seq=5 ttl=59 time=17.9 ms

--- ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 8ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 17.545/17.999/18.486/0.383 ms

With an average response time of just under 18 ms, this is the best choice for me.

The hosts can be pinged via,, and respectively.
