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:
- 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.

“Aquí está la traducción al Español de las Notas de esta Actualización”
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!

Today’s release, March 30th; includes the ability to share your On-Air status with other GridTracker users.
If you opt-in, by navigating to Settings and selecting the “Share On-Air Status?” button.
GridTracker will report every 5 minutes minutes your Callsign, Gridsquare, Frequency and Mode back to https://tagloomis.com/
On the Menu is an option to “View GridTracker Users”, if you toggle it you will see all the stations that have chosen to share their On-Air status.
The data is refreshed every 5 minutes.
The information is only used for GridTracker, we will not *ever* sell, loan or give the data to a 3rd party. (we’re not Facebook)
If you do not want to share your On-Air status, simply leave the button unchecked.
You will still be able to view those that do.
I wasn’t sure if it would work, but I gave it a quick check and sure enough…
On the Pi3 with the latest Raspian image , GridTracker is functional!

Text-to-speech is not working as of now, I will be adding support for ‘festival’ tts engine soon
