Wasn't sure where to post this but I have experience with working with GIS software, and a job history in such, and it may be too late to mention it, but a google maps/ArcGIS online map would be very user friendly as far as layout, i've worked on it in the past as far as conflating information and data sets into areas on a map or into analytical software. ArcGIS/ArcGIS online, as well as the google maps API could be a tool used in the layout. It'd be able to have toggle layers which show the radar frequencies/if it uses ka/k/x/io and such, sort of like an interactive version of what the home screen of the RDFGS is, except able to use vector and raster data, or even satellite imagery. Maybe i'm jumping the gun and this already is in works, but it seems to fit hand and hand with what we are doing here.

That would be really cool. I think that will be possible with the newer version once it's launched. Right now there isn't a public API for the RDFGSv1. The data doesn't have any latitude or longitude coordinates. For the radar bands it's just boolean values in a column for X,K, and Ka, where the rows are Cities, Counties, and States themselves. So the data is definitely there, and could be used in conjunction with public Google Maps APIs to create an interactive map with layers. You could always make a proof of concept using the data you can see, but you'd have to manually bring the data in to your project.
