I have uploaded a new server archive to the repository:

It includes the new arq.pm and bug fixes to some of the services in 
The APRS ~GETPOS and ~GETMSG functions use elinks again.
Please change the connect time limit in the /etc/elinks/elinks.conf file from
120 to 20 seconds ( set connection.receive_timeout = 20).
When the server cannot open the page it will wait for 2 minutes otherwise!

The ~BEACONS command was broken,has been fixed.
The format is:
0000000000002|13 UTC
It shows the current UTC hour and the number of APRS Posit beacons heard from 
station during the last 12 hours (max. 6 per hour).

Further the timing should have been vastly improved... I have chosen for quite 
timing, to suit the varicode content. Too tight timing produces chaos quickly. 

A bug in arq.pm let all stations send a disconnect packet when one was 
This produced a chain reaction on the frequency, everybody shouting 'disconnect'
to everybody else. Tnx for testing this Sergej... Bug fixed.
