    watch the truckee contest - Pete-98 and John-BB

    Ramy posted the following on a couple of other email pages...

    Not sure why it wasn't announced yet, or maybe I missed the announcement, but a glider tracker is only valuable if folks are aware it exists.

    And it seem to work well.

    It can track flarm signals from up to 100 miles, so you can watch the contest today at real time via the various web sites which supports the OGN network, such as:
    http://glidertracker.org/#lat=39.319...0.121&z=12&id=
    Most of the gaggle is currently over Mt Rose between 13-14K.
    Very cool to see how our guys (98, BB) are doing today in the race at Truckee.

    Thanks Ramy.

    It's not me flying up in Truckee. It's Noel Wade flying the ASG 29 I had sold him a few years ago. He has not changed the contest # which I know he plans to do some day.

    Good info Pete, thanks.
    Ramy is always trying to get people to update, but it's just too hard for many.

    Were there two targets/ tracks with BB on the ID? That might be a similar problem.
