GridTracker.org goes NPO!

I am writing today to announce a couple of things and ask for your input.

I have taken more steps with GridTracker’s future.

GridTracker.org is now officially a non-profit entity, registered in the state of Oregon, USA.

GridTracker the program will be officially designated “Open Source” under the GNU Public License (GPL3) in the next release.

We have many, many interesting, exciting and new things planned so please check back often for updates!

And finally, I have a question to pose to all of you. My family and I have decided on a motto for ourselves and our businesses. I would like to share that motto with “GridTracker.org” and would like you all to vote if it should be the motto (for now) of our newly discovered community.

The Motto: “fac quaelibet; tu nescis; noli esse vilis

Translation: “Do what you want.” “You don’t know!” and “Don’t be mean.

Meaning: “You are free to explore anything that interests you.” , “You don’t know everything, so learn!” and “Don’t be mean to others.

A new poll!

Should we continue with Google's Live documents or move to Mediawiki documentation system?

  • Don't care either way, documents are documents (54%, 104 Votes)
  • Stay with Google Docs (26%, 51 Votes)
  • Migrate to Mediawiki (20%, 39 Votes)

Total Voters: 194

We’ve made some changes

You may have noticed your browser is telling you you’re at https://gridtracker.org

This is not in error!

We made the decision to move away from “TagLoomis.com”, as according to Tag / N0TTL:

GridTracker is much larger than me now, it’s time we make that official.”

So welcome to the new site, things are going to change for the better!  

We will be allowing you to create accounts here so you can:

  • Post comments
  • Request features 
  • Report bugs
  • And more

Without having to navigate:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Discord
  • Mailing Lists 
  • Direct eMails 

Even though you still can use those services, you are welcome to just connect with us directly.

GridTracker.org is a community and you are welcome!

So bookmark this site and come back often, things are changing fast and we’re very excited with what the future holds for us all.

Thank you, 

The GridTracker.org Team

GridTracker gets overlays and more…

We’re now a full featured Grid tracker and Log viewer with the addition of CQ/ITU/WAC/WAS overlays.  A lot of improvements to message handling and DXCC detection make for a more useful tool.

Henry(N2VFL) is working his tail off trying to get the documentation up to date (I have been moving too fast for him to keep up). We are  anxiously waiting for him to go take his General exam as well!

We have put our house up for sale here in the Denver area and looking forward to our move to Oregon.  I am putting development on hold until we get out there.  If there are any pressing issues they will be addressed, just no new features for a couple months.

Thank you all for the kind messages and sharing your status online, it’s been fascinating to see all the new GT Flags show up on the map.

We’re a little over 4 months into the project and I think we’ve made some serious progress.

As always we welcome new ideas and suggestions for improvements.

Meet us on our Discord server!
