Re: SpotCollector and dxgrid obtained from VE7CC Cluster
Hi Dave,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The command I sent to VE7CC to provide grids for spotted stations was SET/GRID.
The host address I'm using is ve7cc.net and the port is 23.
I have previously enabled SpotCollector's "Lookup missing location info" option. Doing this gives me accurate grids for usap stations, so for those stations I get correct beamheadings and alerting for needed grids. However, for any non-usap stations, I think SpotCollector is using the DXCC database for lookups, and the grids found are frequently not accurate for the spotted station. This is causing alerting for needed grids to not be correct whenever the grid for the spotted station is not his actual grid. I find that normally the grids coming from VE7CC are correct, so that's why I'm trying to use them. If they could be recognized by SpotCollector and placed in the dxgrid field I think that would solve the problem.
Tnx & 73,
Tim - N3XX
