test 1 by Eric Greenwell
OK, since you have to know... Charter, my regular ISP (cable company), doesn't have dial-up access that can be used when I'm traveling. While traveling, I use a free ISP (www.access-4-free.com) to connect to the Internet for email and web stuff, but it doesn't have newsgroups. For that, I use a...

Electronic declaration by tango4
2 questions folks. 1 - How does one declared a free distance task electronically? Declare takeoff and (possible) landing points only? 2 - If a declaration of any task is made electronically and the logger is sealed in the glider does the declaration still need to be refreshed every day to include...

Electronic declaration (for Volkslogger) by stephanevdv
There seems to be some problems with Volkslogger declarations generated by other than the Volkslogger DOS software (that won't work reliably on many recent Windows computers), e.g. the sector definition can change (it happens when I make a WinPilot declaration and upload it to Volkslogger). I find...
