XCSkies Unavailable?? by Jim Kellett
I just renewed my subscription which expired 10/12, and have my receipt, but XCSkies still has me locked out of my pages, insisting that I renew again! Is the site down? I've tried to contact them twice but got no response, so had to call the credit card company to cancel the payment.

Confessions of a Flarm Follower by John Cochrane[_3_]
So, it's time to fess up. I have used flarm tactically in contests. I enjoyed it. And I think it increases, not decreases, the "spirit" of the sport. How: One soupy, incredibly hard blue day at Perry, I had (as usual) screwed up my determination that this time, I was not going to foolishly go...

RC Clarification by MNLou
I started this question in a new thread in the hope that the answer will be quick and to not divert any of the many other threads on the topic. The way I read the RC report, the RC said that if FLARM is to be used in a contest, it must be in "Competition" mode. Based on discussion on RAS, I...

Labels by [email protected]
Redoing my panel and looking for label material suggestions. Have used 3M Scotchcal vinyl film and Gerber Quantum marking films in past. Since they are designed for external vinyl signs, the printing holds up very well to UV. The problem is the adhesive. Since some of the labels are only 1/8" x...

Spoofing Flarm by [email protected]
Hi Race Fans, We got tinfoil covered antennas, what other FARTS (Flarm Arms Race Tactics) can we think of? Maybe we can think of a way to spoof our opponents Flarms. C'mon, who'll be first (or maybe someone already has)?
