I’ve been meaning to do this for sometime…
I think it’s time we had a forum for everyone writing software for SOTA. There’s myself, Alain F6ENO, Stuart G0LGS, Mario DC7CCC, Andrew K1YMI, Rick M0RCP and I’m sure there are many more authors I’ve forgotten. Also there are those who are producing data files such as Martyn M1MAJ and his KML files for Google Earth etc.
One of the aims of such a forum is to ensure none of us is wasting our time writing software that already exists. This is especially so when there are so many other things to do! Plus all the usual benefits of discussing bugs, features and their solutions.
I’m not sure where to host this either. I don’t think SOTAWATCH is the right place simply as the subject matter will not be of interest to many. I don’t want to use Yahoo! Groups as both the web and email interface to it comes complete with a bucket of fail. I can run a majordomo mailing list if needed. So suggestions welcome in this thread.
If you want to take part then send an email to mm0fmf_sota AT intermoose.com saying the email address you would want to use.
