NGØE's VHF Propagation Map displays current VHF band openings during the past hour. It uses data gathered by APRS-IS. The map is created using lat/long info, and hops from node to node that data travels. By correlating hops with the position at each end of the hop, distances can be inferred.

Type WA9TT-10 in the search box (lower left hand corner) to see my iGate coverage during the past hour. Adjust zoom, as necessary, to more clearly see the black coverage perimeter.

HF  &  Propagation

Understanding Solar Flux, A and K indexes is very important for serious HF operation. With pre-knowledge of the conditions, one can determine if a band will be open, and whether DX contacts may be successful.
