UKRADIOSCANNING - What Gives?

Post by scan125 »

So UKRADIOSCANNING.COM is "offline again with an interesting message/page.

"Site Currently Unavailable"
"If you are the owner, contact your hosting provider for more information."

It is not the first time this particular scanning site has mysteriously gone off-line.

Anybody know anything?

Yes probably.

How many people here on TM1 used UK Scanning Radio?

Was it of value/use or just another "one of many"?

Well it is still down and out today.

Not sure if this is a loss or a gain (traffic to TM1 / others) but a loss regardless.

Before any of us criticise or condemn any other radio site we have to realise that we ourselves are probably registered with a collection of radio sites/forums where we frequent but not always agree. Polite and constructive disagreement is the progression path for all of us.

UKRADIOSCANNING has/had many informative and knowledgeable members and posts over the years so if this off-line status remains it will be a loss.

However thankfully the "Way Back Machine" has content from Jan 2021 so now is possibly the time for you to dig out stuff/info/posts that may be of interest and retention for you.

See: https://web.archive.org/web/20210123005 ... nning.com/

Enjoy

If anyone wants to transfer information from the Way Back machine and post it on our own scanning section I wouldn't object to that. It would retain the info for future use.

I was a member on there from the very beginning of the site but still never became a full member after helping many people with problems over the years.

Full membership was by invitation only and if you looked at the full members list you could see the 'type' of people being invited.

The site will not be missed by me in any way and there are far more knowledgeable people on here if you need help or guidance.
