GridTracker gets overlays and more…

We’re now a full featured Grid tracker and Log viewer with the addition of CQ/ITU/WAC/WAS overlays.  A lot of improvements to message handling and DXCC detection make for a more useful tool.

Henry(N2VFL) is working his tail off trying to get the documentation up to date (I have been moving too fast for him to keep up). We are  anxiously waiting for him to go take his General exam as well!

We have put our house up for sale here in the Denver area and looking forward to our move to Oregon.  I am putting development on hold until we get out there.  If there are any pressing issues they will be addressed, just no new features for a couple months.

Thank you all for the kind messages and sharing your status online, it’s been fascinating to see all the new GT Flags show up on the map.

We’re a little over 4 months into the project and I think we’ve made some serious progress.

As always we welcome new ideas and suggestions for improvements.

Welcome everyone!

Thank you so much for the interest in GridTracker.

I have been working with N2VFL and others in our spare time for the past two weeks on this project.

That’s right, it’s only been two weeks from inception! I can’t believe how much we’ve got done!

This next weekend I will be adding QSL confirmed marking to the map as well as a count, plus gridsquare labeling while zoomed in far enough so it doesn’t clutter the map.

I will also begin working on alerts, the current types I will implement are “Callsign” “Gridsquare” and “CQ designation  eg: CQ NA, CQ JP, CQ OC ” with the alert being

“Audio clip ( possibly your own selected media file)”  “Text to speech engine” “Visual”  and in the future possibly “CW” with tone/farnsworth timing/wpm etc.

If there’s anything else you’d like to see in this program or if you’ve found a problem, please post a comment here

We are listening!

Thanks!
