Spreadsheet or Text of TV Fool Report output
Is there a way to get a text copy of the information in a TV fool report? It would be nice to be able to put the information from a TV fool report into a spreadsheet.

In another thread a member asked for a VHF/UHF only display option. In a spreadsheet that would be easy to do.

Also, if it were possible to take the real channel and NM or dBm from a report when someone asks for help, it would be reasonably easy to make a spreadsheet that could recommend antennas based on their report.

Maybe this is already possible and I am missing it.

Yes, spreadsheet output would be even better than my idea.

Edit: Or CSV output...

The result of a search using tv fool's maps feature ( , below the map on the left, is text that can be pasted into excel or your spreadsheet of choice. It callsign, real channel, virtual channel, network, distance, path, and NM. It is missing Pwr, but that can be found from NM (NM = Pwr + 90.8 for digital; NM = Pwr + 78.8 for analog). It is missing azimuth, which is the most annoying thing to be missing for spreadsheet work.
