I had an 18 QSO Activation last week, and one of the contacts put out a confirmation request through QRZ - even though he had NOT logged our contact in the SOTA Database.
I did enter the contact in QRZ (only because he requested it), but I also then mentioned that he might want to create a SOTA Account and start earning Chaser Points. He was interested, so great.
The first thing he comes back with is that he can’t find anywhere to select Kansas (as his Home Association). Well, sure enough - I guess Kansas doesn’t have any Summits. But them neither does Delaware, but in W3 we don’t slice and dice everything, Why can’t we have a ZERO SUMMIT Kansas Association, so they can choose that as a Home Association?
Well, I told him to just pick something nearby. I have no clue what he actually picked (I looked everywhere that I thought made sense). He logged the WRONG Summit for our contact (correct Summit number but in the wrong region). I figure he might have mangled the Home Association selection as well. So why can’t I just look up his call and see what his Home Association is? Or am I just missing something simple?
I don’t recall these questions being asked before, but point me to the conversation if it is out there somewhere.
