I enjoy using the LHR function to visualize in my head VarAC propagation and to attempt contact with stations others hear but I may not. Surprisingly, I am often able to Ping or convo with stations from other's LH list that my station didn't record. I find LHR and Ping to be two of the most useful features in VarAC, that have greater application. I also glean call signs from watching the VARA monitor, but am not sure this is useful to the subject of this discussion. I can Ping or convo these calls signs, too - because I see them chatting.
I'm not a programmer, but I'd like to see an app that can take my LH Beacon, LH CQ and the LHR from others to allow manipulation and plotting on a Google or Bing map by Locator. There may be other opportunities to use this mined data to make us betters hams, predict or trend band propagation and to better our contact ratio through an understanding of VarAC propagation.
This isn't a Feature, which is why I started a discussion.
