When I looked at the first row of coloured boxes at the top of the page, it was frustrating that the colour-code-key was not nearby. I find the key is easy to use for only one or two rows at the bottom of the page that immediately precede the key, but for most the coloured rows above that, it's pretty awkward.
For instance, see the 17 Metre band plan for IARU Region 1. It includes a good bunch of band segments, and it's difficult to retain the interpretation of each colour while scrolling up and down between the chart and the key. You may see either the chart, or you may see the key, but not both at the same time. It would be nicer to be able to see the information for the whole glorious band plan at the same time, instead of just that there are 6 segments.
The colour squares are big, and there's room to put the descriptions inside of them, even if the squares need to be made taller. Repeating the information every time the colour repeats wouldn't be an imposition. I would retain the colours for each mode. Or perhaps someone might have a better idea for a format for providing the information.
