On my last activation I could not get a spot out by SMS. I use Sota Spotter to format the message and it rolls it over to my text program to send. Messages would not go. Today I tried some test spots and they still would not show up on SotaWatch. Sota Spotter uses the number 424-373-7682 (U.S.). I also found another number in an old thread on the Reflector, 530-430-7682. Nothing happened with this number either. Am I doing something wrong?
That’s not a valid format and I’m not sure that’s a valid frequency either. Please re-read the SMS user guide so you know the message format. If your message is in the correct format if gets forwarded to SOATwatch but it will be rejected by SOTAwatch if the frequency isn’t valid or the summit isn’t valid. You need the correct format and valid information to get the spot to appear.
Is it something to do with the ‘SMS text to clipboard’ within the settings of Sota Spotter. Try ticking the box or unticking the box during your tests with the correct phone number. I think I had the same problem a while ago after the last upgrade?? Worth a try.
All is good now, but I have one final question. Where does this user guide exist? I had searched the Reflector and I found a few threads, some dating back to 2017 so I am not sure I found an actual user guide.
