Re: Endorsements deadline (sort of)

Jim K5SP
 

When approved, Jerry sends me a spreadsheet showing approvals. I then enter them into the club "database", and then the website picks them up for the Recent Awards and displays them. You might not see them because of a massive effort the past few days to get all the contest stickers added.

If you want to know about specific ones, I will gladly check them for you.

I appreciate the work you do and certainly don't want to make any unnecessary work for you, but how will I know if my awards have been accepted?

The Checker has been having a "nervous breakdown" since March 2020.

Upload once and forget about it.  It will take 15 minutes for it to update data, I believe.

Please follow instructions and DO NOT upload a second time.  Be patient. Some it will get fixed.

And then I went back to double check my log... and it shows 25.   Not sure how that happened.   So yeah, I think I will also try again tomorrow.

Re: Endorsements deadline (sort of)

 

Delos,
I've also experienced anomalies in the LONP Checker.
I've communicated these to Jim, K5SP.
Given time, it will be fixed. We've got other issues that will also by fixed.
For now, lets all enjoy the holiday season and be patient.
At one time, when I was Contest Director, I was given an "inside tour" of some of our software by the previous administration.
It just looked like a bunch of "dos" to me. 
Thanks to Jim!...And David!...And Stan!...And Steve!, for knowing & doing a lot to keep us as THE A+, #1, Preeminent BPSK Club, to infinity & beyond!
And, Happy New Year to all!
From Milt, N6MG & Red, W6QP

Yeah, it’s interesting...whenever I upload to the awards checker, it tells me that I have a new award which is LONP 1500, so I submit it.  I also have 1558 member numbers but the checker program says I only have 1445.

Jerry N9AVY
 

Sorry, but my 30m antenna is disconnected until I get coax switch reinstalled on tower.  Last night/this morning we had a bunch of snow and freezing rain here and I'm just not into running around outside t change antennas.  Too slippery out there. 

See that there is at least 1 station (KG5OIB) I haven't worked on 30m.  Will try in when I get coax switch back in service. Also ASK to work K9ATI (070 # 1808 my club station) when you hear me NOT IN CONTEST (a rules violation in contests).
