For lack of a better data source, S2S QSO information has been screen-scraped today around 22:00z from the Activator Logs in the SOTA database based on the participant list posted by @DD5LP. It seems that some stations have not uploaded their logs yet, or my script has not found it for some reason, or they have not activated after all, or used a different callsign (DM2AXL, G4OIG, G7LAS, GI0AZA, GI0AZB, JJ1SWI, LB4FH, M0IML, M0NOM, M1EYP, OE5FDM, OE9HRV, OM1AEG, VA3OZI, VE7KPM, ZS5APT, ZS5AYC). I will update the data again later. Some callsigns were not found in the DB (2E0AXL, 2E0HZI, SV2RUJ, VK2ARI, ZL2EA, ZL4AV); perhaps those people have multiple callsigns. Let me know if your data is missing and you think it shouldn’t be.
Only matching QSOs from the activator logs have been considered, i.e. where both activators have logged the other station (/P suffixes etc. ignored for comparison), and the band/mode matches, as well as the time (to within 30 minutes). The S2S/chaser logs have not been used (many people forget to upload them anyway…).
S. E. & O. (salvo errore et omissione) – I have hacked this together in a hurry, so it’s possible that some QSOs/stations have been left out, or that some of the information displayed is wrong. Let me know if you spot something.
Very good Manuel, in fact brilliant! The map projection appears to indicate short path QSOs when I believe the vast majority of DX QSOs between EU-OC will have been made long path over central / southern America. Maybe it is possible to program reciprocal bearings into your amazing software, but you would need to be selective in choosing relevant Qs I believe to get it to be accurate.
I think it would be possible to trick Google Maps into showing arcs for LP, but since we don’t know which QSOs really have taken place via LP (although it is likely that most if not all of the VK <> EU did), I have just left it that way
Sylvia, your (or Peter’s) EU <> JA QSO is now on the map as well. Good job!
Any QSOs that are still missing on the map are most likely due to missing logs of your S2S partners.
Not to worry, I included all callsigns in the data extraction. However, in case of multiple activators at the same summit, it was impossible to click them individually as the icons were exactly on top of each other. I have now worked around this by adding a small random offset (± about 100 m) to each activation’s coordinates, so if you zoom in enough, you will be able to click the activations individually.
@HB9DQM and @VK2IO Yeah I see now, this is because I uploaded both days at once. I thought the database handled that. I’ll delete and re-upload later today. I’ve probably done this a few times then, as I frequently do QSO’s both at the evening and morning while camping, and log everything electronically at once. Thanks
