DXHC-Reward certificate ideas

The normal DXCC award is 100 countries, right…
So I was thinking doing the following.

DXHC, DX Hundred Club or DX HamSphere Club

25 verified countries = Bronze Award including a 1 month subscription
50 verified countries = Silver Award including a 3 months subscription
75 verified countries = Gold Award including a 6 months subscription
100 verified countries = Platinum Award (The real DXHC Award) including a 1 year subscription
150 verified countries = Diamond Award including a 2 years subscription

A verified QSO is when QSL cards has been fully exchanged.

Open for comments.

DXHC-Reward certificate

Greetings blog readers!

It has been some time since I updated the blog. Since my last update we have released the April 2012 newsletter and started testing multi-path propagation on HamSphere. You can try this mode on the SE server using the 40 meter band.

Other things in the works: Completion and securing the server platform including database replication. Also we are still working to get the new master server fully operational.

Interesting upcoming projects: Currently I am also working on on a DXHC-Reward certificate (DX HamSphere Club). Operators will be automatically issued Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platina awards depending on the number of worked countries (Fully Verified via QSL cards) when they have reached the targets. There might also be other benefits like extended subscriptions etc for DX achievements.

New Main Server

The new main server has been installed and it is now up at server6.hamsphere.com
Perhaps you can give me some ping feedback. It seems a lot faster and I am currently transferring data from the old server. We will run both main servers in parallell until July 2012.

All servers up

After 10 hours work I found the reason for the replication problems and managed to fix it. Database replication is clearly not a walk in the park. Since we have many servers, we always need to let it run for some hours before you can connect the Database “daisy chain” together for full replication. If you connect the chain before it is properly synchronized, the whole system gets instable and starts oscillating with corrupt data as a result.

All servers are go.

Replication problems

The HamSphere network is using database replication between the servers.
Today I have changed the replication order to optimize the data flow.
Server US, IS,GB and AU will be down during this maintenance.

Update

Android / iPhone apps are delayed due to server work. I am still working on transferring data from the old master server to the new. Also I am currently working on the log statistics and report system which is nearly completed.

Code writing

Been writing code all week. Working on the extended server platform.
There will also be a newsletter released in a few days.
