Solar data info when "off line" initially

Post by G4AON » 21 Oct 2015, 08:26

I noticed the Solar data info seems to be read when the program is started, but not checked again. This is an issue if the program is running before the network is connected.

Can the program be configured to check the solar data from time to time and keep it updated? Perhaps a "tick box" under Settings 2 with "Update solar info every" then have a choice of 5 mins, 15 mins, 60 mins, etc.

Thanks

Because the NOAA data is updated every three hours we do a three hourly automatic update

I suppose we could provide a 'Refresh Data' button for those people that don't have automatic full time internet connectivity

Those of us that operate from portable and temporary locations using a mobile phone "dongle" would appreciate the program checking solar data from time to time. In any case the internet is not 100% reliable, even for a home wired connection.
