Yet another question on the SOTA API

I’m trying to do a small proof of concept of a S2S aid for me as I am hopeless at keeping tabs on who else is out and about when I am on a peak.

I looked at the SOTA API “docs/examples” at Swagger UI and was able to get real-time ALERTS retrieved via HTTP. However, I’m not having the same luck with SPOTS.

Using this URL in my browser{filter}?filter=all generates the same 3 ancient spots down under from 2021.

What am I missing?


The cluster uses “” and checks once per minute.

I maintain my own LRU database of the last 30 spots and add any new spots into that list as they arrive.


Thanks Andy…that works!!
