I sometimes find wrong refs in the SOTA database when checking who chased me; mostly on days on which I do multiple summits.
My guess is this comes from the fact that I sometimes delete an alert when I am heading to another summit in order to avoid spotting problems with RBNHole.
When it is likely that I will reach multiple summits, I sometimes work with wildcard alerts, sometimes with multiple alerts with narrower time-windows. But all options have pros and cons - if the alert windows are too narrow, I will not be spotted by RBNHole, which puts an activation at risk. Using wildcards is good, but chasers may not be too motivated to chase you if they do not know whether it is a 1-pointer or a 10-pointer.
Anyway, my plea is: When you check the REF from your log in the evening or anytime later before entering the QSO into the database, please use the spots, not the alerts from SOTAWatch, or ideally both.
I try to send the REF every now and then during the activation, but how often depends on the conditions on the summit (weather, amount of time,…).
