As members will be aware, there are a number of errors in the callsign listings in the 2010 Callbook.
These listings are based on information extracted from SMART for us by the MED. Unfortunately, the final list supplied by the MED omitted a number of callsigns that had appeared on previous lists. It is not clear at this stage what caused this to occur but the MED has written to us apologising for the errors.
Such an error should not happen again as the MED is planning to introduce a new facility to SMART during 2011 called "web services". This will enable us to extract our own callsign listings from SMART.
There will be an errata sheet containing corrections to all the callsigns that we have been able to resolve in the November/December Break In along with the Callbook on CD which will also incorporate the corrections. These corrections have been arrived at from membership records, and also those errors reported to the Callbook team.
The item above has come from two sources. Principally from a summary of correspondence with RSM by the ALO (Don Wallace), and from the Callbook Editor (Lorne Douglas).
The purpose for the link above "Enter callsign for SMART:" and the instructions below, are to have people update their information in SMART (Spectrum Management and Registration Technology) so that the NZART Call Book will be more accurate
