well i don't know what to do, i got on the china map for my location, mesowest says i recently moved to that location, but when i move the location pointer on the china map it doesn't give any location info to show change. I walked it all the way back to my location but it won't change anything because no location info is showing. Don't see why i have two maps, i know cwop went back to old location because of problems but that map which is correct won't move the pointer only the new china location moves without the lat and long showing so i guess i will have to move to china  :grin:. I think all this got screwed up when my upload location on wd changed  some of the info and dropped the - sign. I guess i will just have to wait and hope the corrected info on the upload page makes it to where it needs to go.

Jerry, I put a move request in. I matched the APRS location. Put your software to correct coordinates. You can see one doesn't have the negative. 8000 miles away.

If the software doesn't have a ( -) in front of the longitude it needs a W at the end. I'm pretty sure the software wasn't at fault because APRS has the correct location but somehow CWOP registered lost the correct hemisphere but worth checking.

You should get a notice by email tomorrow if the move took.

jerryg,
Inspecting your RAW APRS data I can see that your upload is not following proper APRS protocol with two infractions.

Your RAW APRS data:
K5SOI>APRS,TCPXX*,qAX,CWOP-3:@070150z28.77962/-96.83077_091/009g012t068r000p001P000b10194h89L000.WD 31

As you can see you have a negative in front of 96.83077. Proper APRS format is to use letters for the coordinates in your case N and W.

Also you are sending decimal coordinates instead of DM.m format.

See page 23:

The decimal would have the negative. Degrees, mintutes, seconds needs a W. Not sure what software he uses.

I have always used the decimal location and had no problems for years.

Ok i just put in the lat and long then converted it to the decimal with w and n so we will see how that works.

Jerry the decimal doesn't have a W. It needs the negative.

Your APRS was correct from what I could see. So I think the software is correct.

APRS Location recorded at 2019-Nov-07 02:02 UTC
This is correct:
Latitude: 28 46' 46" N (deg min sec), 28.7795 (decimal),
Longitude: 96 49' 49" W (deg min sec), -96.8303 (decimal)

Look at the coordinates in China it has an-( E )  and without the negative.

Format is right now but you've got Lat/Lon reversed.

jerryg,
You can increase your upload to every 5 minutes instead of every 10 minutes.

Just to confirm, from what I can see in this thread, there's no point in trying to update my elevation with gladstonefamily right now? My elevation has also reverted back to the numbers I initially used when I set it up.

Yes waiting on Philip Gladstone to resolve this database problem. His hands are tied as he is not getting cooperation from wxqa.com. I've tried too and I'm not getting a response from wxqa.com either.

What's weird is that my CWOP elevation has changed too, MesoWest and NOAA.gov both show my elevation as 208ft (63.4m) but I had updated it to 211.2ft (64.4m) back at the end of Spring.

Good news! I heard back from Russ Chadwick (you know works at NOAA and was one of the key people in getting CWOP going). I'm basically being cc'd as Russ and Philip discuss the issues. Still just symptomatic discovery work going on now. No ETA.

Surprised Jerry's registered position hasn't moved on Mesowest yet.  Gladstone takes a little longer.  Russ must not have got the request again.  ](*,)
