Many of you have noticed that since the recent updates to the basic HamVoIP AllStar distribution, telemetry announcements have been significantly curtailed – basically you will only hear your local connections and disconnections.

I’ve been following the discussion over at HamVoIP’s public forum and my understanding is that this change was by design, because signaling all changes to all nodes was apt to create “telemetry storms” that could disable larger hubs during their busy Nets.

Although it appears unlikely that things will be restored to the previous state – I believe investigation and development to come up with a better solution is ongoing – so hang in there and let’s see what transpires …
