If you wish to share your data but currently you have no internet access, you can use the homeradar_dump2disc() function to write all contacts to a normal textfile which can later be imported by the import functions of libhomeradar.

From the author: Sometimes when i'm on the road to a spotting location, i'll take my notebook and my Radarbox with me. During the complete trip the notebook is running and write all contacts to disc. Later when i'm at home, the collected data will be imported to the public database.
