I clicked on my link to Strong Signals today and got the following notice:

strongsignals.net expired on 06/29/2008 and is pending renewal or deletion
Seeing that many of the 'headlines' on the site hadn't been updated in over a year (i.e., the 30th anniversary of Scanners Unlimited stayed there after Glen had closed), I was wondering if Rich was letting the site slowly die.

Anyone have an idea?

Well it appears that the domain is for sale, so it looks like Strong Signals is gone forever.

I am afraid Rich got involved with one of those Religions that you are not allowed to have any hobbies or fun.

The domain is fine - I just got in, no problem. I think Rich has lost interest in maintaining his website - even when someone else (like me) does the maintenance.

It's still an excellent place to find info on older scanners, though. 73 Mike

Clear you cache, it's not strong signals anymore, at least the forums anyway:

<sigh> Oh well, if true - I've got a lot of stripping out code/links to do. We've got several links in the wiki to Strong Signals. I'm going to wait a few days before doing anything.

Same thing with the CHM site. Sad to see it go....73 Mike

This happened before, in fact I think it was last year. Rich eventually renewed and the site came back up. We'll see if he renews it this time. He may not with the little activity on the site, but I would think he would at least like to keep the domain.

Same thing here. WOW! I hope it does come back up. It was a great place to go for used equipment information and reviews. The posts were getting a little outdated though. I guess a lot of people naturaly migrated over here.

I think things slowed down after the kids came along. It happens! Your time and money priorities change drastically...for about the rest of your life!

What was the CHM site?
Present tense - is...

Look at my sig - it's the Capitol Hill Monitors website

Good to see Strong Signals is back - I wasn't looking forward to working 120 articles in the wiki with links to it....

taking over?

Can an admin explain (just for information purposes) how the aquisition of IndyScan went? I'm not refering to the deal between the parties I mean how the data was merged or shared. Is that an option if Rich was interested and would it be a major work?
Just curious. (not yellow)
