Spy Numbers database, a resource you should use
« on: March 11, 2018, 2121 UTC »
For those of you not familiar, Chris has a long standing searchable database you can log your numbers station reports in.  The link is here:

It is a great resource for historical numbers station activity.  When people log to it regularly it can be used to predict schedules.  In the past that was a huge plus, today with several groups keeping good, and current, schedules online this feature is not quite as important as it was.

And if you log to the DB you can select to have your logs submitted to the Spooks mailing list, sharing with other listeners interested in numbers stations.

This DB really only works if users populate it, so give it a look, give it a try.  The more people who use it the better it will be.

And so there is no misunderstanding, I love seeing the activity on this forum, the recent increase in reports is awesome.  I am not suggesting reporting to the DB instead of here, rather it would be great to see them both used.  The DB is awesome and searchable, while the forums promote discussion.

Thanks for the link Token, however, I looked at two of the data bases and the loggings are pretty much dated, nothing logged for 2017 or 2018, one list doesn't go beyond 2012. 

Maybe it needs some new blood DXers to provide input?

Appreciated... ;)
