Using Hamcap together with Ionoprobe.
From my observations, it looks as the SSNe gives the best view of the
actual band conditions (normal it is derivated from Ionosondes data).
For example last weekend during the ARRL10 the 90 days SSN was
exageratly high, while the real time SSN exageratly low... SSNe
provided a reliable view of the band shape, but it has to entered
manualy, so Ionoprobe becomes kind of useless ( you can see near-real
time SSNe at http://www.nwra-az.com/spawx/ssne24.html
Apparently Ionoprobe is really useful only when used together with
DX-atlas, but DX-atlas MUF-maps are less easy to interprete than the
Hamcap maps... (*)
Is there any way of selecting SSNe rather than any other value when
using Ionoprobe and hamcap together ?
BTW 2 bugs to report:
- When you open DX-Atlas from hamcap you sometimes get a message that
version "something or higher" is required ( I have the latest - so
should not be a problem...). Sometimes it does open normaly.
- If you do not close Hamcap when using DX-Atlas, the MUF map is kind
of useless: you do not get the MUF when using the mouse. You have to
close hamcap to get the MUF values displayed (or is there something I
did not understand properly on the way DX-atlas and hamcap work
Last but not least: Morse-runner 1.4 is brilliant... thanks for the
