HB/BS-001 Valid Summit?


#1

Yesterday (08/09/18) I chased HB9/F5HTR/P on HB/BS-001. This summit ref does not appear to be valid? Perhaps I made a mistake in copying down the ref?

When in doubt look in the database.

http://www.sotadata.org.uk/summitReport.aspx

Enter as much of the name or ref you know and see what comes back. Entering BS-001 lists
6 or so summits including HB/BS-001 and click that shows the full history of this summit

So there you go, no longer a valid summit. Only activations from 1-aug-2005 to 31-may-2018 can be enter to the DB.

Hi Folks,
It was a lot of fun when i realised that is was not anymore a valid summit.
As i did not check nothing before to go the summit, I made about 30 qso and when i wanted to spot myself, i realized that this summit was cancelled last update !
By the way, i had a lot of pleasure to qso you all, weather was just perfect !
Sorry for this zero pointer ! Next time i will check database !!!

best regards to all
F5HTR

Why zero ?
We logged S2S from OE/OO-287 which finally counts for you as chaser.
So, no zero :wink:

P.S.
Interested how was possible to switch on the spot by another OM, the spot is still visible on sotawatch :wink:

Spots via the Spotlite interface do not currently check validity of the summit. Many apps use this interface.
