Ham Tools
radio : by Tommy - April 2nd 2007, 11:49PM
I've been messing with some scripts lately that fill a couple of online niches for ham radio. Most of the visitors to Neodux might not find them very useful, but I'm linking it here for posterity and to explain to any visitor looking for ham radio information what they can find.

At the moment I have 3 tools up. First is a script that fetches the number of ham radio licenes issued in a given month and saves the data in an XML file. I then parse the XML files to create a table or graph. (Just nice to know for anyone curious.)

Next is a dynamic image that will create a map for any ham trying for a "Worked All States" award. It colors in states as you check them off your list. (This was one I made a couple of years ago, but I thought it should be included.)

Lastly, I have a notification script. When you take your FCC test, you have to wait for the FCC to post your information in their database. Rather than hunting it down yourself and checking daily for any news, you can put your name on the list to be notified and the script will shoot you an email when your name is posted.

I hope any ham-visitors find them interesting and useful. That is all.

update: I just added a second color to the WAS map. States listed with the verified tag, will turn green. This is to denote the states from which a QSL card has been received.

Neat, I got an unexpected mention in the ARRL Newsletter for April 27th.
