First off, *Thanks* to all those who gave this a quick spin and took the time for sharing your feedback and helping uncover a couple of bugs.
There were 2 bugs that were consistent across the feedback and were surely + easily reproducible
1.            previous call sign details (when existed) were incorrect; This was in cases where the call sign was a transfer from prior licensee
2.            zip code was missing in the output
Both these issues are now fixed.

Please keep your feedback coming.  This was TRULY appreciated.  Thanks

73s, N0AGI,

Hello all –
I just published a simple, no-nonsense, free, call-sign lookup service: Here’s how to get to it and use it.

Examples :

1.       http://call.n0agi.com/?c=N0AGI

provides a line formatted output of lookup data. Simply call the url w/ “?c=” followed by call sign in question

2.       http://call.n0agi.com/?c=N0AGI&f=0

the “&f=0” format param offers a one line, pipe separated detail.  It spits out a header by default.

Some details behind the scenes:

a.       Web service/page and the guts behind this service is hosted on RASPI Debian as a web farm infrastructure.  Currently, albeit, there’s just one RASPI holding the fort :)

b.      Uses nginx and php5 for web ops

c.       Uses crontab to run job services

d.      Uses grep/awk to parse data and provision output

e.      FCC data is pulled daily overnight into the web farm

f.        Data is currently for US/Americas only.  Plans are to expand to other zones soon

g.       Other formats in the play to come soon. XML, JSON

I hope this will be useful to all and kindly drop me a note on your feedback, ideas, etc. or if you run into any problems accessing it

Thanks all

73, N0AGI-Nagi
