1043New ideas on FAROS
- Sep 9, 2008Hello,
though not being a "shortwave ham", I am currently trying out FAROS
giving me good insight into sw propagation. However I find a feature
missing: there is no indication if a beacon is reported to be "off the
air". There is a program VOAprop (http://www.g4ilo.com/voaprop.html)
that gives just this information after retrieving it, probably
somewhere from NCDXF webpage.
With this info background of the beacons callsign in FAROS could be
changed to red if the beacon is off the air. So you dont' get a false
information that propagation into beacons direction is not possible
but in reality beacon is just off.
Maybe Alex finds some time to implement this.
