Database Access Change



As of September 2015 the general membership access to the WWARA database has been discontinued.  This was done to reduce the necessity of maintaining passwords and due to general security concerns.  The information available to the general member has been replaced by a the CSV file (a text file which can be opened by any text editor or spreadsheet program) that is generated nightly and published to the WWARA website as a database extract.  The information available in the CSV file includes all the information previously available to members plus additional items including expiration dates of coordinations.

Future plans include adding the ability for coordination holders to renew and to submit new coordination requests online.  When this new functionality is made available, new accounts will be provided.  To aid in the process of identifying possible frequency pairs for new repeaters, a second CSV file will be added shortly which includes all of the proposed and pending coordinations.  Proposed repeaters are those an application has been filed for, but is not yet on the air.  Pending repeaters are those on the air and in the testing phase of coordination.

The database committee is also working to provide a more human readable version of these files.  Currently the PDF version of the database extract is manually built and is thus only created every couple months.

7/11/2016 Update

Andrew Jorgensen, KC7RBW, wrote and shared with WWARA the software that converts a CSV file into a CHiRP file.  If you run into him, please say thanks.

The WWARA CHiRP file is produced and is available in the same archive as the CSV file.  What this means is that every night when the latest dump of coordinations is generated as the CSV file, a corresponding CHiRP file is also produced.
