FWD message from Bart Kindt - SARTrack Developer and CEO
+++

Hello,

 

This email goes to all UK RAYNET members who have installed the SARTrack software in the last few years.

I currently have a list of 41 different email addresses I filtered out of the SARTrack registration database (which contains about 5000 installations).

 

The reason for this email is that a new RAYNET SARTrack user has been asking me on options to use manual UK Maps on the program. While I have been able to provide some help, I was wondering if other RAYNET users may have found ways to load their own Maps into the SARTrack system.

 

All this made me think it could probably be a good idea if I would share the list of 41 email addresses between these RAYNET users, so that you could communicate between each other and help each other out with SARTrack related issues.

 

But I do not want to share email addresses without prior approval.

 

So, If you agree or NOT agree that I use your email address to share with the other 40 RAYNET SARTrack users, please let me know by replying to this email.

SARTrack Admin <info@sartrack.co.nz>

I will wait a week or so, and then will share ONLY those people which have agreed with the rest.

 

 From then on you can have internal chats if required, and I can get on with improving the software ;)

Hello Graham and other users.

I also had the same email and said I am happy my email address can be used.  A couple of us in Kent also thought that it might make sense to use this forum for discussion, as non-users can also be kept informed that way.  Will be interested in thoughts of others too?

happy to help, happy to share

Thank you.  I have a basic understanding of it now, but I thought Graham would like to fill me in.

So it is based on APRS and started with the concept of a search dog telling its remote handler where the body lies.  In these more modern times it could be done by giving the search dog a Yaesu Fusion rig and training it to bite the PTT when it finds a lost soul.  All receiving Yaesu Fusion rigs would instantly display the callsign, direction and distance to the transmitter.

My version may not be totally practical, but at least it puts something new on this vastly underused RAYNET Forum.
