Regarding the mode switching, this is only significant if you can reproduce it, i.e. if it happens 
all the time.... there can be hundreds of reasons why a server switches down in mode. 
The most obvious reason is QRM at the server site. Maybe local qrm you cannot hear from 
the client.

You can see how many users there are by looking at 
or at http://www.pskmail.it

All red markers are users, the blue ones are servers.
There are many users and servers in US you cannot see on the map,
because they are MARS stations which are not on ham frequencies...

User profiles are different. Most users employ the APRS capability.
The gateway service is mostly used by mobile hams like you and me :)
We will talk about frequency plans  and PR during the September meeting.

I have been testing the latest alpha server and client and there is one question:
I am doing the test from my boat 1km away from my server and then a new thing is happening!
When connecting it is in PSK500 but nearly directly it goes over in Thor32 mode. If I reconnect it connects in 500 mode and stays there the whole connection.
Is there any statistics on how many "real" clients that are using the system. Now it seems to me as if we are a group of servers that not so many are using.
This is a question for the September conferens how to get info out so more people will be able to use the system.
Looking at my server I have not been gating anyone exept myself since I got it on the air again after my vaccation.
