Thanks for the reply... I've been adding alerts as well. In this case I posted here first and then posted the three alerts about 5-10 minutes later. For my first few activations I only used the spot / alerts as I didn't know people put there stuff her on the reflector. Do you not see the ALERTS?
I've been using SOTA Goat for spotting or just the SOTA watch site on my phone. If I don't have services I've just asked my first QSO to spot for me.
I signed up for SMS alerts with Andy but it doesn't seem to work. I didn't want to trouble Andy with trying to figure out why it doesn't work... I'm pretty sure I have the syntax correct it just doeskin show up on sotawatch afterwords.
By assuming I have service I was referring to incoming text for folks requesting a particular band. I've found that if you leave your phone number some folks will txt you saying.. "hey can your try 60m" etc.
Hope to work you on Sunday and thanks again for the reply.
