this looks outstanding to me. I have added it to the FAQ online and pushed
it to master.

It seems to be the default channel they all use. Unless they don't.

It looks good to me. Please look for yourself and let me know if you want

I'll admit that the entry is a bit long for an FAQ entry, but heck it's
one of the most challenging issues right now and it is truly "frequently
asked". So this is much appreciated.

I should have time later this weekend to try this with the BT dive
computers that I have access to.
