G/WB-??? What does RNBGate do?

found answer in FAQ in KU6J´s homepage!!!

In reply to OE9AMJ:
Yes, it spots it just as alerted with the ‘???’. The expectation is that a chaser will give an updated spot with the correct ref.

I listed the summit as G/WB-?? for 2 reasons.

  1. I didn’t know what the access on the minor roads would be like because of the recent snow.

  2. Because of the above, I didn’t know the order I’d be activating or how many summits I’d get round. I ended up doing only 2 but had 4 possibilities in the bag!

To avoid confusion I left the summit info out and relied on chasers picking it up on line.

It seemed to work fine!

hallo Pete,
the same with me.
Sometimes the decision what summit is possible u desire when u checked the snow situation “stop or go”, time, …

I wanted to check the possibility of using RNBGate with “???”´s

I use RNB Gate:
Limited time on back skiing tour
Not heard on 20m, contest on 40. I use qrp.
No SMS-spot possible, because there is no phone net.

It is better in summertime, because u can send s2s into a pileup and get attention. But there are not so many activities in winter.
