The entry screen looks really good. I’m excited to get the SOTA template added. I’m interested in helping get this up and running.
A few things about my activating to let you know where my (selfish) interests lie: when I have room in my pack for size and luxury, I use an iPad 4 mini with a Logitech keyboard case. It sits in landscape mode where I prop it on a rock or my lap or in the dirt etc.
When I don’t have room or time to set the iPad up, I use my iPhone XS Max in portrait orientation. It’s laying on my knee for the most part with cw paddle on the other leg.
A few observations for what would make HAMRS more awesome, in my opinion:
-number bar across the top of the iPhone QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode. The QRZ app is a great example of this. I used the iPhone version of Outd Log yesterday and it was a major pain having to switch to the number screen while copying callsigns. I’m apprehensive to use the Microsoft app for alternate keyboard since they get to have all my keyboard input forever.
-an input dialog for two letter state would be awesome. A suggested part of the exchange is for the chaser to give you the state they are sending from. It would be nice to enter the state if they give it. The state is not part of the official exchange for getting summit points, it just a nice courtesy to record it. As an alternative, I could enter the state if they give it to the note field.
-when entering rst, the numbers only keyboard would be nice, but not a biggie IMO. One keyboard with numbers across the top would have great consistency.
-adif file export. Is this the same as .adi? sotadata.org.uk asks for .adif
-SOTA spots. I like the POTA spots tab, will this be available for SOTA? Some way to automatically populate the QSO field would be great for a summit to summit contact.
How can I help?
