Οι εξελίξεις στους 5 MHz


Η διοίκηση της Ε.Ε.Ρ. ενοχλήθηκε γιατί κρατώ μικρό καλάθι. Δεν καταλαβαίνουν ότι είναι άβολο και κουραστικό να περιφέρω ένα μεγάλο άδειο καλάθι ?

Alternative site for Athens Digisonde

Today I discovered that the digisond of the National Observatory of Athens host an alternative website with different skin but with the same basic information. The address is http://noa-dps.astro.noa.gr/ and I don't know if it is a permanent service or some provisional or experimental feature.

Their main site at http://www.iono.noa.gr/ is again fully operational.
