Dale, K8RO, was heard operating as W1AW/8 from Michigan on the last
pass of FO-29 for anyone chasing the W1AW portable operations. He
wasn't sure if he was going to be on the next pass or not, but
hopefully everyone will get a chance to work him before next Tuesday.
I was glad to get my home state in the log! Any W1AW/4 operations
planned from Florida for this week?
Also, the ARRL has released the tool for tracking your score in the
Centennial QSO Party. The overall point totals are derived from your
LoTW log data and the W1AW portable QSO total is derived from their
uploaded data. The link is here:
I have a computer which I am currently dedicating to getting AO-73 data via
a FunCube dongle. I leave the dashboard running all the time and when the
AO-73 comes over the horizon, it grabs the data.
But something odd has been going on from the start. After multiple days of
running, the dashboard apparently crashes. At least when I check in on it,
the dashboard is no longer running and I have to restart it.
Has anyone else had this experience? If any dashboard developers are
listening, is there any data that I can collect to help figure this out?
Thanks and 73,
