Happy New Year

It’s been a busy holiday season with the GridTracker team, a couple of us are settling into new jobs, one of us moved to a new state. And we’ve been working on old bugs and new features as well. We’ll continue to work on those with testing on some changes currently ongoing. The plan is to release a version before Spring.

What started as one hams way to not get buried in highlighters and printed off gridquare maps 4 years ago has evolved into the hamshack companion for operators of all kinds, we still track grids, but also now DXCCs, states, counties, CQ Zones, ITU Zones, WPX, various other awards, we have filtering and sorting that’ll make it much less intimidating for operating on today’s very crowded digital sub-bands.

So to celebrate as we’re testing all the new features and bug fixes we’re working on from February 1st through the 14th, members of the development and test teams will be signing with special event callsigns. Afterwords we’ll collect all the log files and prepare a nice certificate to email out to anyone that worked us.

The best part is that we’re going to make a lot of fun QSOs with everyone which to me is one of the best aspects of amateur radio!
