What SOTA infrastructure do you use? What tools are critical for your day-to-day enjoyment of SOTA? I’ve added a poll here for people to vote, based on infrastructure I’m aware of. I think a lot will be self-evident and immediate selections, others less so. If I’ve missed anything, add a comment below.
parksnpeaks.org is also critical for me.
What about SMS?
good point, forgot about that. If you use it, hit like on AB3TQ’s post.
I left PnP out deliberately, as it’s more of an aggregator than SOTA specific, but I do see the point. I’ll buy Allen lunch sometime in the next few weeks in apology
I use Fast Log Entry (FLE) for my logs
not SOTA specific, but SOTA is supported (it checks summit refs), and very little typing to do
Luc - ON7DQ
What I also use all the time - is SOTA Filter - OK it’s only a front-end to SOTAWatch but in some ways so is SOTA GOAT and Rucksack Radio tool etc.
Ah, also I still occasionally use SPOTLite to enter spots or alerts from my smart phone or when the web gui to SOTAWatch isn’t working.
I also use the SOTA Spotter Andriod app.
Yes me too (SMS)
Click the like button then Ron so it gets counted as per Andrew’s reply.
HamAlert is also a very useful tool for me.
Ditto. Not thing I can get to do push on iOS. Love that I can set so many parameters.
Yes - HamAlert is great !
I would like to add SpotLite and Log4OM.
Andrew, Sota Spotter including the inclusive sms input, Sota CSV Editor, Yahoo Groups for VK & NA Sota, Garmin Base Camp used in conjunction with the mapping project.
What is this? How did you get Base camp to work with the mapping project?
And ON6ZQ’s Log2map tool: http://on6zq.be/w/index.php/Log2Map/HomePage
Import/Export tracks between the two and exporting summits from SMP and importing into BaseCamp.
I find it interesting that only 82% of the people voting in this survey say they use the reflector, considering the survey is on the reflector shouldn’t this logically be 100% of the people surveyed!
It’s a standard survey concept that can be used to get a handle on how accurate the answers are.
