Currently announced activities for the castle-day

new issued awards


The first quarter of 2017 was again a record with COTA-activities. Altogether 300 logs reached us until end of march. Database comes closer to 650000 entries. Especially the yearly COTA-award has more and more friends. We could issue the first awards for 30 and for 40 activated german castles in 2017 to Peter DJ2OS and the hunter-awards 100 and 150 in 2017 went to Artur SP8LEP. The 1500. standard-COTA-award in the class 375 was reached by Peter DL8NCA. Many thanks to all activators and collectors.

COTA-maps-status

Process of the migration on the COTA-map-module continues. We are going forward to update all german COTA-objects with the correct spelling. In the future there is planned to have the master-file on the COTA-server directly connected with the QSO-database and the map-view which means that directly after uploading the log after nightrun also the map-module appears updated. This will open a much better and effective statistic-behaviour.

new coordinator district V

Starting january 01, 2017, Andreas DL6AP will take over the COTA-coordination for DARC-district V Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Welcome in the Team Andreas, thanks to Rudi DK7OM who did this work

annual_cotaactivator_10_web
This will give in the future a higher focus on objects which were active maybe only one time. With the reactivation also the hunters who missed first activity will get a second chance and will improve also their score for the normal COTA-award program. A happy new year 2017 with good health and cu on the bands. 73, 11, Manfred DF6EX OVV U23
