The recent discussions of progress on grid awards, and the increasing number of portable/mobile operations has led to some discussions about how grid credit was awarded. Up until now, credit has only been awarded for grids worked. This seems a bit unfair to those PSKers who make the effort to work mobile, or portable from locations other than their home QTH – particularly when activating rarer grids. The August PSK31 Expedition (APE) Award is a prime example.
After discussion, we have decided that effectively immediately, activating a grid will be recognized in the same way credit is give for working a grid! Hopefully this will encourage more APEs, mobile, and portable PSK31 operations. We also decided to make it retroactive!
However, since APE, mobile, or portable operations make up only a minor portion of the total logs submitted, it does not make sense to spend the time and energy to rewrite the code of the Checker. Consequently, we have devised a “work around” that will give you credit.
Here are the steps:
All previous APE, mobile, or portable operations can be credited using this procedure.
