Or you can present the same data in graphical form. Be forewarned, this is not a PJ2T log - that call is just an example.

Statistics Graphical

The graphical representation really comes into its own when the data are more complex. For example, if you want to know at a glance which bands were most productive when, graph hours versus bands.

 Tip
