Hello Bob, I cannot answer your question but I think most avid chasers look at the frequency rather than the detail, then spin the dial, move the mouse and listen, hopefully, for a while. :wink:

If you don’t want to be spotted by it then you only have to tell it so. You have complete control. A bigger problem is people who don’t listen to what the dx is sending.

Yes i agree that few of them listen CW, but now i suddenly understand why chaser ask my so often reference !! because this spot just create confusion to all ! That is not usefull as a spoting !!

Robert you don’t need to contact anyone.
You can control it all yourself.
All the details are here:

For your alert today, if you had added RBNN in the comments then RBN would not have spotted you. A better option would have been to enter the summits as DM/BW-??? in the alert, then you would be spotted without summit details and the chasers would have to listen for your summit info and post it to Sotawatch. Of course chasers have a habit of posting the incorrect summit info too!

Thanks for the contact this morning, you were a good signal on 14Mhz.

Hello Robert!

RBNGate uses a time window for each alert -1/+3 hours. So at the end of your activation on BW-010 you came in the time-window of the next alert for BW-293!
