NOTES TO THE TRANSITRACE LOGS
Goran Olsson, July 14, 2016
These logs have been approved for publishing by the FAI Jury and the F2
The log files are named according to the date, TTYYMMDD.TXT.
YY: year; MM: month; DD; day
The files are best read with a plain text editor, such as Windows
For those who have a Transitrace system, the log files can be moved to
the TT directory and then viewed using the Log Review command.
The logs are fairly easy to read and understand. If you have questions,
send me a note: email@example.com.
The first entry of each day is a TEST using my calibrator to check
that the system works correctly. The speed should be 286.107 km/h +-
After the contest finished on most days, the system was set to AUTO
mode to register flights of the free practice, and these are included in
the logs. Pilot names are not registered, but the time of day can give
For the World Cup a single system was used. The logs are:
Round 1 and 2: TT160505.TXT
Round 3 and 4: TT160506.TXT
For the World Championships two systems were used. The logs are from the
computer used as the primary system EXCEPT for the very first flight of
round 1 where this computer was used as the secondary system. The
computers were then swapped due to a problem with the judge indicator
Round 1: TT160509.TXT
Round 2: TT160510.TXT
Round 3: TT160511.TXT
Round 4: TT160513.TXT
In all cases the primary system was used for the official result.
In round 4 Andrew Heath has two entries. This is because he pulled out
before the timing started, but the operator (I) was slow in reacting, so
the system registered a zero result. I had to start a new attempt in the
system to register his continued attempt. (There was a stopwatch backup
for the three minutes attempt time.)
On one occasion the wrong competitor number was entered. The result was
given to the correct pilot, but the log still has the error. I haven't
taken the time to find and correct this.
The last entry of the last day is a flight outside the contest,
requested by the USA team to allow Ivan Valishev the backup for his
national junior record that their rules require. (Designated Round 5)
