We high plains hams have to endure the landlocked, first-skip-zone-landing-on-dirt propagation of pretty much HF band to get to DX except VE and XE. And it's no secret from any long time DXer, geography matters.
It would be neat to see a map of the actual path that the signal took hopping along its way to grandpa's house. It would reveal that the first hop would put us directly on dirt! In pretty much any direction on pretty much any band from the geographical Midwest, (Kansas, Nebraska). And yes, there are the ducts that occur and showing those patterns and paths would be super cool as well.
Oh, and I love it because it shows when the band is open.
