I’ve been asked a few times why SMS spots have failed. Sometimes this is because the spot never made it to me. Sometimes it’s because the message was badly formed. To save me answering emails I’ve put up a status page so you can check for youself later on whether the spot was processed OK.
http://www.sotaforum.co.uk:8000/spotstatus/ is the URL. You replace with your callsign to get the status for your spots. Or you can use all to get the status for all users. Only the last 48hrs data is scanned.
http://www.sotaforum.co.uk:8000/spotstatus/CT1BQH shows recent spts for Carlos as he has been using the system today.
http://www.sotaforum.co.uk:8000/spotstatus/all shows all spots in the database. There are few spots from me in there which failed and unrecognised/malformed fields show as “bad”. You can tell where the error was by how much of the spot appears in the status.
This is still work in progress so it’s subject to change, modification or withdrawal and it’s only working on the European server. It does seem stable enough to put to beta test.
