Re: Call Sign vs WAB Square

Hello All,
Many years ago I suggested having something similar, and the Data Protection Act raised it's ugly head. I don't expect any members to complain about their data being used, but it may be worth checking up with someone who knows the DPA inside out.
As far as I can remember, any data that is gathered for a reason can only be used for that specific reason. Even if it appears in the public domain, if it is used for another purpose (ie call sign vs WAB square) I think it may fall foul of the DPA.

I have sent the latest Arealist.txt to Phil G0ABY to load on to his web site. Arealist and Areafinder.exe are zipped together as WAB Call which I have added to Files section of the Yahoo reflector.

Please email me with any corrections, additions or amendments that may be needed.

As the data is being used "for that specific reason" I can't see any problem. But, if anyone asks, I will remove their WAB square from the list
