RE: [30meterPSKGroup] Re: File - Any Reports on 30 mtr contacts?
- Hello Sholto,
Are you aware of the "internet alert" software developed by KF6XA for Propnet
which, I believe, does what you are looking for, at least for Propnet signals.
You tell the software (as of last report, just tell Dave) how often you want to
be alerted to the receipt of YOUR signal by another Propnet station (on whatever
band.) When a Propnet station reports a catch to findu, Dave's software notices
and sends you an e-mail alert.
Don't know if Dave wants to increase the utilization of his program right now
but at least I thought it was worth letting you know.

I have an idea and wanted to get some feedback before implementing it. Would
anyone be interested in receiving an email or cell phone SMS alert when
conditions on 30m are "happening" or a specific entity shows up?
With the autospot software it is possible to measure the number of different
stations transmitting in a given time period.
So say, there were 20 different calls in 5 minutes, maybe that would
indicate a good time to get on the band?
The alert could also be programmed to look for a certain entity callsign -
so if you wanted South Africa, you would get an email when a Zulu Sierra
turned up (if it was spotted by someone within a "close" distance to you).
Depending on the feedback I will look into implementing this. I don't intend
to charge anything for it because there is no way to guarantee anything, but
it's possible that using SMS would involve a charge.
