In reply to G3CWI:
FoF2 is available elsewhere
True, but I believe its availability on SOTAwatch would be extremely useful. If we assume that most serious chasers will be monitoring that page, they will have up-to-the-minute (well ten minutes) data to pass onto activators as to the likely success of band changes. For example, if I was told whilst on 5MHz that foF2 was 7.3 MHz, then I might seriously consider trying some 40m SSB, whereas, if I’m informed that foF2 is only 5.5 MHz then I wouldn’t bother.
It may also be of use to activators with cleverer mobile phones than mine who could perhaps access the data from their summit.
I don’t think it need look too cluttered. I envisage a small box displaying the current foF2, with a green background if it has risen since the last value, red if it has fallen, and yellow if there has been no change.
How does that sound?
