Key West in New York?


Stupid question - Is there a reason why Station 2180 (Key West) is listed as "United States / New York" for both North and South America regions?  Its configured latitude looks like the Florida Keys to me:*&region_country=United+States+%2F+New+York

If this wasn't done intentionally, is there some place where I can report the error so that it can be fixed?????

Cutty Sark Sailor:
Excluding a problem with the recent database issues,
I might suggest the operator has selected "United States / New York" rather than "United States / Florida" from the 'country' select on his Station configuration page. :-$

Probably not a recent database issue, since it has been listed in New York for at least a year now.  Maybe they moved it?

FWIW, it looks like the database problem was fixed yesterday, and the station list and Used counts appear normal again.....

Sometimes "New York" is used to mean "Eastern" time zone. Just a thought...

Correct, but in this case the operator appears to have simply selected the wrong State select in his configuration page.  The station is located in Key West FL, the GPS data sent from the controller references it there, and uses those as the reference for strike locating. And does not change the 'server' it connects to ("North America 1") It makes no difference except to a human reading a station list.  If it's 'wrong' on the configuration page, it'll display incorrectly.  The box doesn't care what it's location label is, just correct GPS cordinates and UTC
Exactly as I just 'relocated' one of my systems to the United Arab Emirates briefly:791Frankfort RxL☯ H-2 xLoop 305mm-80/2 E-150...United Arab EmiratesNorth America 1Which is actually:791Frankfort RxL☯ H-2 xLoop 305mm-80/2 E-150...United States / KentuckyNorth America 1When entered correctly
