As you may know, I’ve switched to Outd for
logging contacts on my iPhone for SOTA operations. I wrote a
review of Outd HERE
One thing that it won’t do it pull callsigns from QRZ.com. In addition, if the callsign changed hands,
the name will be wrong. What I decided
to do is create an updated file with callsigns that I’ve worked for SOTA that
are not in the DB and sometimes fix the names that are in there if I know they
are bad. I’ve added about a 1,000 calls
so far that are not in the stock version.
I was hoping to get a dump of calls that are in the SOTA DB but that
might not be permissible.
If you use Outd and would like to use my file,
HERE for instructions on how to install the latest version. If you have calls that you would like to add
or repair, feel free to send me a list with the callsign and name separated
with a comma (“,”). Also, if you have
any issues, please let me know right away.

Hey Chris, you might wanna check this outReplyDelete
I use this list with VK Port-a-log and it seems to be pretty complete. But since it pulls the names from the callsign database, you will see the registered name as opposed to a "nick name" (i.e. Christian vs. Chris)
WOW! That's 60k more names than I have in my cool custom DB. :) I'll try it and hope that it doesn't crash Outd. Or... create some strange performance issue for logging.Delete
OK, I found that his file was missing about 1500 that I had, including a local ham. I've combined forces and the file now contains 71,483 calls now.Delete
Nice! The list creator said he created it using "participating SOTA users only." Which probably means only people with an account on sota.org.uk would make it on the list.Delete
There was also discussion about some call signs not making the list because of some sort of discrepancies. They will probably continue to work out the bugs to make that list contain all call signs in the sota.org.uk database.
