  • IBP Button to track beacons

    I hacked a new button to track the IBP beacons by modifying openwebrx.js

    Any of of the IBP beacons can be selected from the list. The receiver will follow that beacon through the band changes. If it was muted, it will mute until the next cycle. The cycle option will check all IBP beacons on all bands over 15 minutes.

    If you want to try it, you can run the mod on any receiver as shown at http://ve3sun.com/OpenWebRX/ without changing the main distribution.

    If it is of general interest it can be pulled from the git or downloaded directly.


    Just playing around... It is useful for me to check the beacon transmissions from different locations.

  • A new Receiver list with sorting and station saving

    Thanks Martin.

    It really helps to know what users would like to see as we all have different interests and habits.

    You are thinking exactly on the lines that I am. I haven't quite figured out the best way to get there yet. One possibility is to incorporate the propagation into the map. Here is an example showing the propagation from/to John's receiver on 20 meters the other day. The hot spots are where the SNR should be best (absent solar flares).

    But that is a bit too complicated, maybe.

    The other option is to have a propagation table like this one that is already in DX Monitor, so easy to replicate:

    Both images based on VOACAP path analysis from the transmitter to the receiver.

    So many projects - so little time - which explains why this one has been on my mind for so many years.
