Just managed to connect SA6BQZ-1 Gunnar, saw the link go from PSK500R, up to 
PSK500, then down again via PSK500R, PSK250R, PSK125R to THOR22 and then
up the ladder again to PSK500R.

The reason for downgrading was an illegal pactor3 qso which started on 
top of us.

So, nothing wrong....

I will do some more test but so far it has happened 2 out of tree times. I have no local QRM as what I can hear when listening to the server, and if so why does it work on 500 when reconnecting. One test that could be done is if an other client then myself could try to connect to SA6BQZ-1 and se if the problem is still there, do you reach it?

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.
