Hello, just for everybody to remind on this post which was already sent long time ago. I get more and more corrections of logs which are very time-consuming. Also everybody should learn in his ham-exam that a log is a document. So please take care.
If you check your log before you sent it, it costs you 5 minutes time.
If I have to change it later in the database with around 14 mio entries it costs me much more time.
73, Manfred DF6EX WWFF-log-manager
<here the post again>
Can I remind all Activators and National Coordinators to please CHECK YOUR LOGS before uploading them to Logsearch.
I fully accept that mistakes will be made with transcribing or entering individual QSOs, and corrections can be made. However, there is no excuse for any of the following:
These simply need the Activator to do a sanity-check before submitting to the National Coordinator, and for the NC to do a very quick check before uploading.
≈ Comments Off on Beautiful nature – a private comment
Under the current situation where nobody knows how it will continue and how long it will take I would apply to everybody to act within the rules which were given out by the authorities.
Of course everybody is able to go out in a limited way if it´s a need for his health-condition. Was also one time out at almost the end of the world last sunday, with nobody around, as I almost became the crisis at home.
However I generally would recommend to avoid some forced activities (like outside-contests) in the coming weeks where it is important to jump from one place to the other. These activities can be also done later.
Currently it looks like the only way to get it better under control will be, when everybody is reducing his contacts to a minimum.
Nature will be also available in one,two or three months later. Take care on yourself and on your neighbours, friends and the whole community.
On April 14–17, during their trip to the North Pole, Martina DF3TS and Thomas DC8TM will be active on air from the “Barneo” drifting ice camp as RA/DF3TS/p and RA/DC8TM/p.
The future of the “Barneo” ice camp is unclear, and because of the catastrophically shrinking ice area in the Arctic Ocean, the possibility of establishing a QSO with any other drifting ice camp in the future is becoming increasingly doubtful. Thus, in a month there will be a unique chance to add on score the RFF-0176 — the “Severnyi Polyus” drifting ice polar station.
Martina and Thomas will be active SSB on the 40, 20 and 17 M bands with an emphasis on 20 m band, most likely around WWFF frequencies of 18.144, 14.244 and 7.144 kHz ±QRM, as well as FT8 on 40–30–20–17 M bands. Yaesu FT-991 100 watt transceiver with LiFePO4 batteries and vertical dipoles antennas will be used.
A short (~30 min) activity is planned from the Pole itself by the special callsign DP0LE (not RFF-0176) during the raid to the geographic North Pole.
Martina and Thomas will arrive to Svalbard (Longyearbyen town and airport) on April 10 and, pending a flight to “Barneo”, it is very likely they will appear on air as JW/DF3TS and JW/DC8TM until April 13 — IOTA EU-026 and, perhaps, some Norwegian WWFF reference not far away the town (there are 7 LAFF references on Svalbard, 5 of which have never been activated before).
Further work is ongoing… especially to try and address the lack of Club Station reports in “Top Operators”… I thought I had the answer, but it made the queries too complicated and affected server performance.
It still hasn’t happened, but in the near future, all CTFF references, activations and QSOs/P2Ps in The Azores will be migrated to a new CUFF series. This has been promised for a while (including in the last updates), but time has been in short supply!
Development of Logsearch has to fit around family and work commitments! Unfortunately, my job means I’m on the road a lot!
Hello, attached you find the plan for the WWFF-COTA-meeting in austria received from Rainer OE3RGB. Meeting happens from 07 till 09 august 2020 in Drosendorf an der Thaya. Have a look on the agenda here
