Software / Re: Shortwave Broadcast Schedules Beta 0.0.2b2
« on: January 01, 2014, 1815 UTC »

Two issues have come up on my 0.0.2b2 version.

1) When I open the program, I get a repeating pop-up window saying that "this beta version has expired".
2) When I download the latest sked and renamed the file to sked.csv.txt, I was expecting some confirmation that the program was using it. This did not happen.

Please advise.


QSLs Received / Radio Plate Current

Received this email confirmation for last night's broadcast. Sounds like more formal QSL's are in the works.

Confirming reception of Radio Plate Current on 1/1/14 7:38Z 6925 KHz AM
Powered by Eimac. Big pipe vertical and power between 100 and 1000 watts somewhere in the X time zone.

I'm choosing to leave out the time zone for now.

Thanks RPC  8)


Radio Plate Current is S8 as I tuned in at 0738z with an ID and email address for a QSL.
