Wayne,

There are many ways to spot
PARKspot is one that Kraig, KA2LHO has put together, which will also put a spot out to the County hunter network.
After all parks are in counties and you never know who might need one of those.

Different band, different mode, different day (utc) are all acceptable.
So you can work a station on every band and mode he does today, and tomorrow do it all over again.

I've also had positive results posting to the global activation calendar at http://wwff.co. 3pm might be pretty good for some EU contacts, and a lot of folks in the EU especially seem to look for parks that have never been activated before.

Using APRS for spotting

Detrick Merz
 

I learned today that the SOTA folks have a system that leverages APRS for spotting:


Does anything similar exist for WWFF?

I, for one, would be interested in such a system. I often find myself with a drained phone battery and a noticeable hit to my data usage when trying to activate a park. Or in a park where there's little or no cell service. I have some spare tablets that have wifi, but no data plan. I've been thinking about setting up a Raspberry Pi + Direwolf + WiFi + radio, and having APRSDriod on the tablet using Direwolf (across wifi) as a TNC. But I know of no way, currently, to send a message through the APRS network and have it converted to a WWFF spot.

Of course the reverse direction would be equally useful: receiving spot data from other activators via APRS message, for those P2P contacts.

Dave, 

I post on DX Summit and it gets picked up by SmartWWFF. Once you have been identified once on SmartWWFF, it will report RBN spots for you which is a very nice feature.

Hi,

What do you define as the “main cluster system?”

Today I spotted kc4jnw on the WWFF spotter and it hasn’t posted onto dxsummit spotter, that seems to  be my experience of late. Maybe I’m formatting the spot wrong or the forwarding system is broke.

I've used the WWFF spotting and it always drops information into the main cluster system - never had a problem with it.

I don't use it on a regular basis as I prefer to use DXSummit, but WWFF spotting does drop information into the DX cluster network.

Best regards,

Tom, W1TEF

That does appear to be the case now. I do recall in the past people checking
this and saying that it does not, so things may have changed. Thanks Tom. I'm
still feeding SpotCollector from 3 Telnet nodes. I hate to miss any good DX!
