openSPOT 4 Call Log not showing "past" information when opened

On my openSPOT1, if I connect to the Status page (using MS Edge), it shows the most recent traffic before I connected. With my openSPOT4 Pro, it always shows no entries even though I have heard several. Is there a setting which needs to be changed? More a curiosity than a problem.

Please use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. The openSPOT4 does not store previous traffic information.

Thanks for the information. I have a Raspberry Pi running headless with the browser open to the openSPOT4 24/7. It captures all the traffic, so I can review it to see what I have been missing.

Is there a technical reason not to store the last 1,2 or 3 last logs? Even if they are in memory only while the unit is running? So when the unit is shut down it will lose such info if the issue is with persistent storage? I definitely do miss this coming from pi-star :)

Soci5 looks like the previous OPenSpot did capture call lags while OopenSpot was powered but no web browser was connected to it. Is this assumption correct? I do not have the previous version.

To your above answer to another user? How would any of these browsers solve the issue?

Also, it would really be helpful to have the last few callsigns in status to know when was last transitions and by whoM.

Previous openSPOT versions also did not store the call log.

Thank you,

Reading some info I was under the impression it did.
Still, if technically possible, it would be great to have 2-3 logs stored in memory if there is no persistent storage available, while the device is powered on. If the device loses power, that information is lost also.
