I know that there has been previous discussion on the SOTA Australia Yahoo group as to what to sign when out portable, e.g. VK5PAS/p, or VK5PAS/3. However, I thought I would share a small problem I’ve been experiencing with my electronic log and Clublog.
I run the logging program MacLogger DX and upload my log automatically to Clublog. I have been getting error messages back from Clublog regarding the pedestrian mobile and bicycle mobile stations that I have worked. Some have been signing as /pm or /bm. I have been recording them as /pm and /bm in my electronic log. However, Clublog deciphers /pm as Indonesia, and deciphers /bm as China.
As a result of a post on the MacLogger DX Yahoo group, I received some very helpful responses. The upshot is that I need to record pedestrian or bicycle mobile stations as /p and not /pm or /bm. And simply place ‘pedestrian mobile’ or ‘bicycle mobile’ in the notes field of MacLogger DX.
Clublog accepts /m for mobile, /mm for maritime mobile, and /am for aircraft mobile.
Just for the information of anyone who uses MacLogger DX and Clublog.
