APRS to SOTA working?

Is APRS to SOTA functionality not working? I’ve just returned from a few days of activating in northern California and could not self spot from 6 summits. Just checked the APRS network and see my transmit messages were accepted but, SOTA doesn’t appear to have received them. Looking back 72 hours in the log of SOTA spots and I don’t see any APRS messages received.

I had the same problem last Saturday when activating on Mt. Lawlor. I also spoke with WA9STI, he has had the same issue the last week.

Dan, the APRS2SOTA webpage says that the link is up and the last spot received shows from a DG7MEJ. But, I just tried sending an APRS spot and have yet to see it posted…

My APRS2SOTA logs show the last spots for NA6MG that it received APRS messages for were:

W6/CT-066 7.044 cw 14 June 17:04
W6/CT-066 14.061 cw 14 June 17:40

They also appear to show no APRS messages for any registered user being received between: 2014-06-19 17:42:28 and 2014-06-23 17:56:21

I have sent APRS messages from DB7MM-7 on 2014-06-19 14:00 UTC and 17:38 to 17:42 UTC from two summits. I do not remember exactly but to my mind these appeared in SOTAWatch. So presumably I was the last user before the outage.

I just saw your test spot Todd. A mystery as to why it hasn’t been working. It would have been nice to have had this luxury while I was far from home this past weekend. All worked out OK though thanks to chasers that spotted me.
