Procedural Confusion in EA?

On 20/11/12 an EA2 station was spotted for EA2/BI-034 and I was able to chase him at 11:15UTC using G6DTN. When I checked the database today (21/11/12) I saw that the summit appeared to have been activated by EA2DCA/P and EA2DNO/P! When I looked them up in the Activators Roll of Honour, neither had activated anywhere on 20th. This is not the first time I have noted some sort of confusion, and I believe the MT has contacted EA about it.

Has anyone else noted this?

In reply to M0DFA:

Maybe just parts of the database update at different times?

In reply to G1INK:
And with different calls? From 2 activators who were not apparently there? A bit of a co-incidence, I think.

In reply to M0DFA:

A careful look shows that EA2DCA/P and EA2DNO/P activated that summit exactly one year ago. Yesterday’s activation has not yet been entered into the database.

In reply to G3VQO:
Exactly - which is why they don’t appear in recent activations!


In reply to G3VQO:

Thank you, Les, for pointing this out. Apologies all round, and I’ll wait and sit on my hands.

Hello SOTA friends!

Indeed, I, EA2DCA and my girlfriend, EA2DNO were in EA2/BI-034 on 20 november 2011. On that occasion We activate only VHF. And on November 20, 2012, I was at work, not in the mountain.

On that day was EC2AG on 14 mhz. You can see the activity:

Patience and respect, please

ANYONE can confuse.

20/11/2012 The day carries out the EC2AG / P from EA2/BI034 ERDELLA.

Since there seems to be a match to the day 20/11 but not the date they are one year apart …

EA2DCA / P 20/11/2011

EC2AG / P 20/11/2012

I believe that with a look at the alerts, spot and cluster gives the solution … and wait

also to climb the log …

Greetings EC2AG …
