I have now been able to get FrontlineSMS up and running thanks to the generosity from the University of Aberdeen’s, Centre for Sustainable International Development (CSID). CSID kindly answered my plea for help to replace the mobile phone that was currently being used without much success by agreeing to purchasing a much needed GSM modem. The modem which has been bought is the Huawei E1750 (a.k.a. WCDMA S830), the modem also has come with single booster and antenna that will enable it to be used in weak signal areas in remote parts of the Philippines. The Philippines database has also taken a step forward with addition of computer assistant Lee. Lee is a third year computer student at the university and has joined the team to gain experience and help develop the project further. The project now is coming together and all being well will be fully functional ready for the trip out to the Philippines later this year.
