Re: PODXS Net???

Very true.   After 47 years in service end I've found there are times when RTM in necessary .  Happened to me the other day at one of my customers.  There was a weird message on display and I did  everything I knew and went to car for manual... couldn't find a thing about solving problem.  In desperation I called manufacturer's tech support which ran me through all the programming and he was stymied too.  Finally he said to drop power, both AC & battery.  That cleared the problem.  It was last thing I would have thought of, but my job is to find a  fix quickly  and not run  up the billable hours.
 
When your stuck on something it's always good to RTFM  ... Read The Flaming Manual !

Dan,
I downloaded NetLogger and took a look at it.  I haven't used that software in several years (way back when I was participating in the OMISS nets) and it is a LOT different than I remember.  I remembered it being more DOS-like in the past.  The new revisions are impressive. 
I have no idea on how to set it up for a particular net and operating it at a net controller.  Do you have any familiarity with that?

Well, no body really needs Net Logger except for the Net Control Stations.  I believe the initial setup is what might take quite a while as someone would have to try and get most of the regulars in somewhat of a database, so when that person checks in, all his information will pop up on the Logger.  Now, those that download the Logger and use it, you will see everyone that has checked in and it is color coded as to whether they have checked out or who is up for making calls.  that way you know exactly where you stand and when your turn will be.   It really is a very neat little program.

I use it when I check in to the OMISS nets and sometimes there are up to 50 - 70 checkins on any one net!!!   Needless to say those nets can run for several hours!!!

This sounds like a great idea.  I'm in.  Do I need NetLogger?
