WWW.G8AJN.TV silent key

Post by VK5YYY » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:40 pm

It was with great sadness I noted the passing of Dave's website
G8AJN.TV remained as a memory of someone who touched most of our community
It had all sorts of fantastic bits and pieces which I trawled many times
The moment between analogue and DATV was a momentous leap that Dave helped (very patiently) guide us through
I'm currently rejigging the Digilite to RPi Frankenstein hybrid so someone else can get some joy from it like I did

It was with great elation that I discovered some kind soul (Dave or Noel I guess) had saved V5.9 digilite to the Wiki.... thanks guys!
However there is still some missing pages, have they been lost forever, or could they be resurrected
I was wondering if aforementioned kind souls have the missing pages of history and could update the Wiki
Or is there a site that has already republished Dave's (and his teams) work
An example is Dave's Alford slot info that encouraged me to successfully build one

I have recovered most of the files from Dave's website after I noticed that it had expired today.

It needs some tidying up, such as removing dead links, replacing missing PDFs etc., but it hopefully will continue to be a useful resource for Digilite and other ATV projects as well as a fitting tribute to Dave.

Its URL is http://g8ajn.eyrg.net

Not sure if this copy differs in any way but I also cloned Dave's site a while back when Colin G4KLB had concerns it would be lost. Colin approached Dave's family to get the okay.

I haven't fully checked it but what I have looked at seemed to work okay; PDF's are there.

Goodonya Clive, that's the spirit, cheered me up no end
As did re-watching Dave receive his award and his no nonsense approach to building something from scratch
as opposed to buying a pre-made unit, with a view to learning something.... genius really!

Well I flicked the switch on to my Digi-Pi or Raspberry-Lite thingo last night and it didn't quite work
More refinements needed I guess
To buffer or not to buffer the GPIO, that is the question

Good thinking Clive.. It is a tremendous resource for ATVers at all levels.

When Dave sadly passed away I also thought it best to make a full copy of his g8ajn and digilite sites as at some point they may disappear.
Ive just checked my web site backups and still have full ripped copies of the websites.
It all seems to function as it was, running locally from my hard drive.
As yet not sure how or if the rip could be reloaded back to the web.

Hi Terry

I'm quite happy to host it as part of the East Yorkshire Repeater Group's web site as we had started with http://g8ajn.eyrg.net
It's probably a more complete copy as I recovered it from a site that keeps historical records after the site had gone off-line.

Contact me via PM and perhaps we could arrange to get your copy via Dropbox or similar.
