A new portable SOTA logging toy.

Peter, HB9TVK has updated his SOTA logging software, which he wrote primarily for the Pandora Linux device.

Intrigued by the device, and the small full qwerty keyboard, I grabbed the opportunity to purchase one when they became available for a few days earlier this month.

It took a bit of fiddling around to get it working, but Peter was very supportive and updated his blog with the information required for an easy install.

I've not had a chance to use it yet in anger, but it looks like it will take away a lot of the repetitive work of transcribing paper logs  for upload to the SOTA database.

More info on the Pandora  (and the Pyra) here.
