Some good news, progress is being made towards having the RAYNET-UK server back online very soon. Currently the new member services server is in testing and not available to the general membership just yet, but will be very soon. First services which will come back are email, group mailing system, WX warnings, webmail and the members forum. Other services will follow.
At the National RAYNET-UK Committee of Management meeting, held on Saturday 17th June, vital decisions were made regarding the urgent restoration of the memberships web services using a cloud-based server solution. This will give RAYNET-UK the resilience and greater capability to expand its provision for members in the future. The main priority is now to reinstate the membership web services as soon as possible and this work has already commenced. This will restore the RAYNET email service, Registrations, talk through permits and BPSS applications as a priority, other services will follow on.
Note: Members should rest assured that once documentation has been received by Registrations, insurance cover is operational, even if the cards have not been issued. The backlog will be cleared as soon as possible. The public RAYNET-UK website, (this website), is currently being re-populated with content and will remain hosted separately for the foreseeable future.
The National RAYNET-UK Committee of Management will come together at a meeting in Staffordshire this Saturday. On the agenda will be the pressing issue of getting the membership website back on line, work for which has already started.
Don has put out his usual call for contributions to next months RAY~Link, if these can be sent directly to him by email don.g3yqo @ gmail.com before the 18th July, please.
Please note that all @raynet-uk.net email addresses are currently unavailable.
This also includes Registrations and BPSS. Please do not attempt to send any forms to these departments via the @raynet-uk.net email addresses as the forms will not reach the teams. Please send any forms via mail; the addresses can be found on the REG-01 form for Registrations and the BPSS Checklist for BPSS applications. The teams are currently unable to process any applications and will hold on to any applications until the present issues have been resolved. Talk through permits are also affected, along with RAYNET News.
As you are aware, yesterday the RAYNET-UK website detected a threat to its systems. The threat has now been confirmed and has resulted in the RAYNET-UK website having to be temporarily closed down. This will affect @raynet-uk.net email addresses; RAYNET News; Registrations & BPSS. Although the electronic Registrations & BPSS systems are not working, you are still able to send in postal documentation but will not be processed until systems are back online. Thank you for your patience with this matter while a solution is sought.
