Re: The big party of the VK Logger

Thank you for all the kind comments. Security and functionality updates on my two other websites, requiring a later version of PHP - the underlying reason behind having to discontinue VK Logger, wait for nobody! The circa 2003 coding of VK Logger does not work on PHP higher than v5.2, and support fo...

Forum reactivation statement

After just over two years, the VK Logger Forum is being re-activated for two primary reasons; 1) Facebook My own experiment with Facebook concluded recently. It's been interesting to observe how much use Facebook ham radio groups receive (lots!), compared to traditional Forums, such as this (little)...

Re: Lurking 101

I cant see the point of posting waffle for the sake of increasing my posting numbers.

Re: Lurking 101

From recent comments, 'lurking' may need clarification. We can all do without the pissing competitions. A potential pissing competition will put many people off participating in a Forum. Luckily, most of that has shifted to various Facebook groups, where the s**t shirrers spend most of their time no...

Lurking 101

:popcorn: In Internet culture, a lurker is typically a member of an online community or PLN who observes, but does not actively participate. Lurking is just one form of free-riding that can happen within an internet community, and is similar to asking questions without responding or gathering inform...

Correct!
Search filter was 3400-3450 MHz.

Thanks for pointing this out, and it's now 3300-3450. :thumbup:

Re: VK3RGI 3 Ghz beacon on new freq

Beacon database entry has been updated so that 'nominal frequency' is now 3398.434. :thumbup:

I'm assuming someone will change the existing status from 'Off Air' to 'On Air' as appropriate.

Re: VK3 6m beacons

If anyone can assist with first-hand information, it's appreciated if you could communicate (there's that nasty 'c' word again!) by updating the actual beacon database. Posting here in isolation is great, but undermines the point of having the database. VK3FGN has been deleted from the beacon databa...

Re: 2016 Winter VHF/UHF Field Day

I don't see any rules around permitted liaison. Can you use spotters, loggers or even repeaters to liaise with others? http://www.wia.org.au/members/contests/generalrules/ WIA-General-Rules.PNG Despite that, there has been a demonstrated lack of interest (I don't dare use the 'a' word) in using VK ...

Matt, you could rename the file to a 'txt' extension and attach that.
