Self spotting by SMS - format


#1

Can someone quickly refresh my memory of the format for a SMS spot? I tried it from Bishop Wilton Wold last week but couldnt remember the format! I’ll set a template up on my phone

Thanks Les, you beat me to it.

Martin if you have a phone running Symbian S60 3rd edition or higher you can have a copy of the program that makes entering spots trivial.

Here is your log entry:

Thu Jun 16 11:32:16 2011: +CMGL: 1,“REC UNREAD”,"+44xxxxxxxxx","",“11/06/16,11:
31:30+04”,G7mrv g/tw-004 145.5
Thu Jun 16 11:32:16 2011: Bad format: only 3 fields in message

Turn around time from you hitting send on your phone to me processing the spot was 46 seconds. FYI you can use ! for your call and you need to split the reference into its country and summit parts. You don’t need the -, I’ll insert that if it’s not there.

i.e. ! g tw004 145.5
