    Hi Everybody;

    The MDSR team has now developed a propagation list generator for the web. This generator takes the propagation findings and creates a color coded list converts it to html and then uploads it to the web. This way the information is shared for everybody. Local amateurs can use the information to see if the band conditions are good for DX in almost real time.

    At this moment the scanner only scans bands below 50MHz, but we are having plans on setting up a second monitoring station for 6m, 2m and 70cm.

    The Lynn Valley MDSR station's propagation can be seen here:

    The noise graph measurement and the propagation indicator can be seen on our website updated every 10 min.

    We also looking for volunteers that are interested in setting up a RF-Seismograph for monitoring the Solar Eclipse in August 2017. Please join the MDSR Yahoo user group. The test is fully automated so once it set up and running it leaves the operator free to do other things, like watching the eclipse.

    The LIF2016 and the MDSR software work with a multitude of professional HF transceivers!

    If you are interested in setting up a RF Seismograph for your location please go to our website for more information.

    All the best and 73;

    This is very cool. I was involved in some very early "skymapping" projects at Hipas Observatory.....long before the reverse beacon network was available. We barely had the internet. :) Great to see this moving forward!

    Thank you for your comment. ...

    Developing the RF-Seismograph was a lot of fun and exploring the noise level around us is a great way to eliminate some of the local nose that every station nowadays has to deal with.
    Are you interested in setting up a RF-Seismograph at your station?

    All the best ;

    Hi Alex. New developments along that front here. I'd like to talk to you offline about this.

    Wonder if everyone should adopt a standard set of colors for these bands. I see PSKreporter and even Hustler antenna traps all using different colors.

    Just my 2cents.

    If the data is available as a CSV file you can use your own plotting software and choose any colors you like. I'll have to check this out.

    So this is like a WSPR type system? Low power tx picked up and reported to web by other stations?
