Summary 0003142: Logbook does not offer a list of satellites; this causes problems with LOTW upload (and probably awards)
Revision 2019-01-31 23:58 by WA9PIE
Description A satellite operator informed me that they use another logging program because HRD Logbook does not use the supported lists of satellites that makes it compatible with LOTW. I'm gathering information and sources about this.

But it seems to me that the "Ant/Sat" tab in the ALE needs to have a pre-built standard list of satellites that the operator can choose from... or we populate it from whatever information we get from HRD Satellite Tracking.

"If the QSO was made via a satellite, its propagation mode must be set to SAT, and it must specify the name of the satellite used."

Description I'm just now forming this and I'll remove this disclaimer later... once we have gathered enough information to take action on it.
