RBN Hole just squirted out a spot for WD6TED. We all arrived on his freq. to hear him having an SKCC QSO. I thought, OK that’s weird but it is a pretty slow SOTA day so he might as well spend some quality time on the QSOs =)
So I waited until he finished up with KA3LOC and then called him. Long pause. He calls me back and I give him the standard SOTA QSO treatment, knowing there are lots of other chasers waiting their turn. I sign off with him and I hear the pileup calling him… no response.
Thinking, hrrm something is not right here I go and look at SOTAWatch again… I see that his spot was posted by RBN Hole but I DO NOT see any alert for Today. I do see an alert for Monday 16 October 2919 =)
So, why did RBN Hole throw a spot? Is the code only looking at the last 2 digits (gasp!)? Isn’t that how we got in to the whole Y2K mess?
Sorry, did I mention it’s a slow SOTA day? Guess I should get back to work now…
