Since FT-8 is already too easy a mode, I figured we may as well try make it easier[*]. I’ve just pushed an update to RBNHole to monitor the PSKReporter website and post spots for JT-65 and FT-8.
It is currently inert, meaning no spots are posted yet. I want to give it a bit of time to bake in with real world data. As such, if anyone is planning an FT-8 or JT-65 activation over the weekend, could you let me know via a PM here so that I can monitor to see if you would have been spotted. If I’m comfortable it’s no spammier than RBNHole, I’ll make it live.
Same rules as per RBNHole, need to have an alert posted, frequency lockout within 2.5kHz, time lockout with 10 minutes between spots, same window (-1/+3).
Other data modes could conceivably be added too, of course. We should also perhaps consider changing the name to either Automatic Spot Submission Hole (for US folks) or Automatic Reporting of Spots, Etc, Hole (for the Commonwealth folks). I like naming things after myself
[*] Actually, I’ve been thinking about it on and off since Ed suggested in earlier in the FT-8 threads.
