I am planning my next SOTA trip, and it seems that mobile phone coverage in the area I’ll be visiting is not very reliable.
My wife said would it be possible for a message to be posted on SOTAwatch so that she could check up on my progress whilst out on the hill?
Could this idea be developed into a specific feature within SOTAwatch, where details of progress could be posted by chasers for the benefit of the ‘significant others’?
I know the ‘spots’ system could be used, but I think that the use of this area for this reason would not be appropriate.
I suppose a ‘sticky thread’ could be used on the reflector, but the thread would soon be full of out of date information.
I just think it would be great to be able to pass details of your progress via radio to a willing chaser, who could then publish the information on the internet, to be picked up by interested parties.
