New Experimental HF Propagation Map

Lee Inman of the Winlink Team has mined the server databases for useful propagation data and developed a new map showing recent HF connection paths on a worldwide basis. You can view the new map here.

Stations that do not report gridsquare positions (especially gateways) can not shown. If you aren't seeing your QSO's check your software settings. BPQ gateway programs generally do not report positions for sessions. The controls in the upper left of the map should be self-explanitory, but if not let us know. Mouse over a path line and see details of the QSO.

Please send us a comment if you like the map, and make any suggestions you feel would make it more useful to you.

Developers: This data is available through the Winlink API. Contact us for information and access to the API. Please include a reference to your project or a detailed description of your application.
