We have had some issues collecting data from FoxTelem and storing it on the
AMSAT  server.  Many thanks to those who sent reports and helped us
troubleshoot the issues.  We have now migrated to a new server that should
be more reliable.  We have also reprocessed all of the received telemetry.
You should see your totals increased on the new leader board as a result.
The new server also throws away any duplicates or test records, so you may
see your total adjusted accordingly.

The leader board is in the same place at http://www.amsat.org/tlm/

If you are running the latest version of FoxTelem (Version 1.02) then you
do not need to do anything.  It should automatically cut over and start
sending to the new server.  You can also force it to read the new server
parameters by restarting.

If you are running an older version of FoxTelem and can not upgrade at this
time, then uncheck "Use UDP" on the Settings screen.  The primary server
should be tlm.amsat.org

Please let me know any issues that you see, including missed telemetry.
