Re: Wsprdaemon location error (mine) & noise reporting

Hello Bruce
Your noise data are being reported to the database. There's lots of documentation on wsprdaemon.org on how to query the database, but a quick query brings up the following as a few recent lines on 40 m:

tutorial=# select * from wsprdaemon_noise_s where site like 'KX4AZ%' and band='40' order by time desc limit 15;

        time         |  site   | receiver | rx_grid | band | rms_level | c2_level | ov |  seqnum  

---------------------+---------+----------+---------+------+-----------+----------+----+----------

 2021-10-16 14:56:00 | KX4AZ/T | KX4AZ_1  | EN74gc  | 40   |   -132.02 |  -143.22 |  0 | 25616876

 2021-10-16 14:54:00 | KX4AZ/T | KX4AZ_1  | EN74gc  | 40   |   -134.97 |  -142.96 |  0 | 25616570

 2021-10-16 14:52:00 | KX4AZ/T | KX4AZ_1  | EN74gc  | 40   |   -129.19 |  -142.62 |  0 | 25615900

 2021-10-16 14:50:00 | KX4AZ/T | KX4AZ_1  | EN74gc  | 40   |   -127.36 |  -144.05 |  0 | 25615125

You will see that the site name, as set in your wsprdaemon.conf for the upload id, is still as /T and not -T in this listing.
However, it is as -T in the webpage with your noise graphs at http://wsprdaemon.org/graphs/KX4AZ/

Any rigorous calibration of antenna system and local noise is so fraught with problems and pitfalls, there is no real need to be concerned about "polluting" the noise database. If someone is really serious about using your noise data I am sure they would get in touch to learn more about your setup etc.

best wishes
