OGN/R coverage map

Is there a way to display this?
OGNRange fails to do this if you use the PW% string. Pretty sure it used to work.

Hi Ian,

It seems to work if you edit the % into the URL eg. http://ognrange.onglide.com/#PWR%,max,all,51.68450_-1.24500,9,#00990000:#009900ff,circles;

This lists the three sites starting with PWR ie Redhill, Radley and RhiwFaw

Hope this helps

Hi Chris,
I was trying to capture a coverage map of the UK, with PW%. The result is always incomplete. It is better if you restrict the date range, which leads me to think it cannot handle the volume of info.

The situation is not satisfactory. I flew from Dunkeswell to Shoreham Thursday and only noted two uplink stations at Dunkeswell and Bembridge (IOW) working. But I only know this from Aircrew playback. Can we do something better than relying on this poor old OGN website ? Then we would know what the coverage really is for Gliders and MLAT data.

There is another OGN map -

https://ognrange.newacecorp.com/?#pw%,max,all,53.70935_-2.39299,8,#008000ff:#00ff00ff,circles;

or a heat map on https://www.gliderradar.com

but with gliderradar.com you have to select each ground station and then select coverage
