The ParksnPeaks app allows (Australian & NZ) amateur radio operators to alert, spot, log and chase portable radio activity.
There are two main types of activities, Summits on the Air (SOTA) and World Wide Flora and Fauna (WWFF). SOTA is an award scheme for radio amateurs and shortwave listeners that encourages portable operation in mountainous areas.
WWFF is an international program where Amateur radio operators are encouraged to operate portable from designated nature parks and protected nature areas.
The Parks & Peaks app brings a convenient interface for these activities to the iOS user, both activator and chasers alike. Users are presented data formatted for a small screen from the Parks & Peaks website (http://www.parksnpeaks.org) and are able to view and create spots as well as alerts and it also contains tools such as Find Sites to support the activities.
This version allows entry of QSO logs which can be exported and emailed to the appropriate award websites or managers straight from your device. Logs can be exported as ADIF or CSV.
Mapping of parks and/or summits is now included and you can plan your trip by viewing other sites around the one you plan on activating.
Fixed issues around iOS 14.
