News, Press Releases and Special Interest

Recent changes to Super Check Partial

Stu Phillips, K6TU, writes: “Users of Super Check Partial will see a significant increase in the number of callsigns in MASTER and its derived files. This month’s release (just posted live) has 40,940 calls in MASTER – up from 35,416 last month.

This step function in active calls is a result of a new API which allows logging programs to directly submit a log to Super Check Partial. This removes the need for the contester to take the extra step of emailing the log to logs@supercheckpartial.com. Logs are submitted securely to Super Check Partial over HTTPS and are “signed” by the logging program before submission to authenticate the origin of the log.

SCP API support has already been added to N1MM+, DXLog.net, SkookumLogger, N3FJP’s loggers and Writelog. This support is in published releases for N1MM+ and DXLog.net, selected contests for N3FJP loggers and in beta versions for SkookumLogger, Win-Test, TR4W, and Writelog. N3FJP’s release process will add this support to all their loggers through the course of this year.

I will be watching closely over the next few months to see whether the threshold needs to be changed. As in the past, please report busted calls or requests for add/deletions/changes to logs@supercheckpartial.com.”

Stu also added that any logging software authors who wish to add the API support to their programs to contact him directly at stu@k6tu.net.
