The FINDU (CWOP station display information) network appears to be unreachable, at least for some. The mailing list has indicated the following:
The main findu server is being moved someplace else, as the owner,
Steve Dimse, is starting a new job in a few weeks and is having someone
else take over.
The backup server is supposed to be online, but according to Steve,
it can barely handle even half of the load. So expect findu to be
marginal, at best, until the main machine is available again.
Currently I cannot reach them however there has been a notice posted for some time that work was going to be taking place…
Just a heads up for anyone trying to reach “findu”
Thanks for the update Bob - hope we don’t loose CWOP
Maybe a little fund drive is in order? Can you get in contact with Steve?
I think there’s another site like FINDU where you can get CWOP data. I can’t remember what it’s called now though or how I found it.
I just have the Mailing List address and the signup address, which did respond for me this morning:
I found the above link which appears to list all of the CWOP stations and maybe more LOL
I also believe I have come across something similar to FINDU at one point. Seems to me it was associated with a midwestern college, not sure…

No it wasn’t that one. It may have been http://aprsworld.net/, but I didn’t bookmark the URL so I’m not 100% sure.
I just checked my CWOP data and found none has been received the last 24 hours. I have not changed anything in WD. I went to the CWOP setup in WD and clickes test and it failed to connect. CWOP2779
Not having any problem from my end in connecting…
Version 10.29Vrev fixed it. There was a bug in the ftp part of WD
yes, there was a bung version availble for only a few hours (while I was out)
