Re: 1st Unofficial Official Grid Leaderboard ?

Also, there could be a possibility that the station has entered the wrong grid on his QRZ page or has moved without updating QRZ page and his grid would be wrong.  I try to always copy the grid from sent text. 

I believe that the grid info only appears on QRZ pages and not anywhere else, but I could be wrong.  The KC5 was operating from various grids in NM and wasn't signing portable nor mobile as I recall. 

Just don't want to see anyone cheat themselves out of a grid.  Of course, a lot of stations don't send their grids.  That's a different problem.

I only copied the info for Leader board from what was on checker and I had gone back to May 2016.  If people don't submit logs more than once a year, the data won't be 100% accurate.  Nothing I can do about that.

Nope, I did not mess up.  The grids are entered automatically.   You did not say anything about portable/mobile operations.  Of course, anyone working portable/mobile, etc we would have to change manually but those are far and few between, at least for me anyway.

Did it do it for all of N7WE's portable operations when he was running cross country  or KC5RGQ (?)  when he was at different grids  at NPOTAs ????   Don't think it did.  

There were several others who were portable/mobile in grids that are different from their home QTHs which are listed.
That's probably where you messed up... somethings are automatic nor trustworthy.

Hmmm, I never enter grids manually on ACLog.  It does it for me automatically!!!

On ACLog you have to enter grids manually.  Some things just aren't automatic !  It's a pain to do it manually and I'm not fond of doing that way, but it only takes a minute.

Subj! ect: Re: [070] 1st Unofficial Official Grid Leaderboard ?

Am I remembering correctly that the log checker is not able to collate grid squares from ACLog?

It's been ages since I checked my grid totals...not sure if they are increasing or not.

Went through checker and decided to let everyone know who's at the top of the Grid pile. I cut it off below there are several who are only a few grids away from making it to this list. There is no claim as to accuracy of this list and corrections are gladly appreciated.

Perhaps the next list will start with 200 grids. It might be really big. Anyhow, congrats to all on the list !
