Unattended connecting

Post by G8FKL » Tue Dec 03, 2019 10:38 am

A fellow ham has pointed out that my call sign is shown as 'on air' briefly at exactly 4:00am some mornings according to the 'last on' web site which scrapes its information from D-STARusers.org. Would this be my hotspot (which is left on 24/7) running some kind of automatic test connection periodically?

I think what he is seeing is the hotspot update and reboot that occurs every morning?

I see "GATEWAY: G8FKL G" entry showing up every morning at same time around 03:34:02. Which is different then a user last heard message. Wonder if that is what he is seeing? When the hotspot updates it restarts services every morning then relogs in to ircddbgateway so you will usually see a Gateway entry every morning. I am not seeing "USER" last heard message every morning.
