Hi Dave.  "No data" means that there have been no recent opportunities 
to compare your spots with those from one of our referencestations. 
Right now, the server says there are no recent comparisons.  I wouldn't 
worry about it.  If you have been matched, the result should show on the 
Connections tab (instead of "no data").  If your error exceeds +/- 0.2 
KHz, you should also get a message on the Status tab.

73, Pete N4ZR

For spots, please go to your favorite
ARC V6 or VE7CC DX cluster node.
