Glitch in database scoring software?

For W5N/PW-022


From To Score Bonus
01/Jul/2010 31/Dec/2099 8 3 points between 01 January and 30 April

WS0TA was active on 28 April but only 8 points were credited instead of 11. Maybe I misunderstand how the bonus works.

From Fred KT5X’s log:

date, summit, call used, QSOs, points, bonus points
28/Apr/2012,W5N/PW-022 (Barillas Peak),WS0TA,41,8,3

So the correct 3 bonus points were awarded for this activation. Bonus points only go to the activator however.

Well I checked the database and KT5X operating as WS0TA does score 8 points plus 3 bonus points. You should be able to see that at http://www.sotadata.org.uk/(S(ieq4dw2k221qzjuhpg1wcazo))/ActivatorLog.aspx?userid=2935 but you may have to be logged in to the database.

Of course! Makes perfect sense because they are enduring the hardship…not the chaser. Still learning how this works…

TU & 73!
