Yes, I could parse the HTML.
I might have to ask you to add a few more tags to find the table in the mark-up.

You all prob are aware of the IARU databse at http://www.amsat.org.uk/iaru/. It contains some, but by now means all of the info required. If the new database is to take over the role of the IARU pages, please note the (simple) functionality
The app was written by me years ago, originally in asp/MS Access databse, and translated (again by me) into php/My SQL. The only person who updates its is Graham, G3VZV, who specified the functionality, so should have an input into the new pages.
Also dont forget that we would not wish to display command uplinks to the unwashed!

OK, just use IARU as a source.
It would help to add an ID to the <table> definition in the html:
- Code: Select all
<h2>Status of active Satellites on Amateur Radio Frequencies</h2>
<table id="satellite-data" width="100%" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
FWIW I also thought about TLE which can obviously be just a sample. As TLE has a timestamp the software would use the most recent data. The advantage of XML is obvious I hope, especially when added to XSLT.
FWIW here’s an example of a dynamically changing XML data file displayed via XSLT: http://v2.sdrspace.com/ .

Please throw an example into the pit – I have fields I want to see and fields I would like to see. Will probably get my satellite antennas up in a week or two…

yes, it's a good idea to have such one.
- mode (up/downlink)
- contact person ? (e.g. for QSL request)
And generally for the record: last updated (date / by)
It should be important to update the xml file easy (also from different moderators) to change TLE, status updates.
@Dave: Is it possible to update the TLE daily (e.g. by a crone job) ?
