Just to let you all know that any alerts appearing in the “Spots” for more than a couple of hours ahead will be deleted.
To make it clear, “Spots” indicate the presence of an active or soon to be active station on a summit, with a bit of leeway in that “Spots” can be used to indicate changes in eta or abandoned activations but only on the same day.
“Alerts” indicate intended activations. An abandoned activation should be posted in “Spots” but a rescheduled date/time belongs in “Alerts”.
“Spots” tends to get cluttered with multiple entries for activations. I would ask people to check whether an activation has already been spotted before adding a spot. As SOTA becomes more popular in more countries it gets difficult sometimes to keep up with what is happening without having to cope with multiple entries!
Alerts deleted from “Spots” will be reposted in “Alerts”, we don’t want to lose track of activity!
