The new spots capability in V2.3.7 is brilliant and the API is ridiculously easy to implement. Within 2 minutes of seeing the FlexLib code I was happily sending pretend spots to Smart SDR using my API tester. Now to implement in my logging program!
Great job, all you dev guys. Attaboys all round I'd say.

SmartSDR 2.3.7 is only a few days old, but I'd like to suggest that the Spot API be extended in a future version to allow the optional specification of a background color for each callsign. This would make it possible to depict each callsign's known QSLing behavior: via eQSL, via LoTW, both, or neither.

Dave, there is already a color attribute for spots.  Reach out to Eric or Abed about it.

Tim,

Dave is asking about background color, not text color.  This request was made and rejected a few times on the Alpha list.

I wonder if SSDR thin client would work with embedded telnet?
