Coordinated Amateur Radio Observation System (CAROS) SUBMISSIONS


The Coordinated Amateur Radio Observation System (CAROS) is designed to help radio communicators help themselves. It is capable of logging propagation reports and is one of the primary engines of our Radio Propagation Network.

Use this service freely and frequently. Anytime you make observations or are able to make unusual contacts around the world, log your reports here so others can obtain your information from our Radio Propagation Network web page.
