Re: Beam headings for SS
Gents,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The calls in question are in Call History...that was the original question. So in theory, the program COULD have heading down to section level. But I am not assuming that...
1) Can someone confirm if the program can use the data in Call History to determine location, or is it limited to wl_cty data and assumptions?
2) Also, I noted somewhat different beam headings for the "Available" mults list and the entry window. Why is that?
I am not saying that this must work for individual calls, I realize that is a high expectation. I am just asking what the intended functionality is as results seem somewhat odd.

Even if they are in CA, if you are in NV the heading could be anywhere in possibly a 120 degree arc. Although, if you know the section that could possibly narrow it down some. If you run off wl_cty you could be way off. From OK you would probably point West for a W6 but for me you would need to point East.

How would the program know for sure where to point the beam if the station is not in the database? Just because it's a W6 doesn't mean they are in California :-) 73
