Propagation Conditions for the
160 Meter Band
Welcome to the Topband radio propagation section! In this area, you will find
a variety of tools which will hopefully help you improve your chances of
succeeding at Topband (160 meter) DX.
This is an experimental server and will be under construction for some time as
we strive to establish predictable correlations of propagation conditions on
this chaotic band. Feel free to check back as frequently as you would like.
Algorithms used to derive these predictions are subject to change without notice.
We make no claims as to the accuracy or useability of these predictions.
At the present time, we are restricting our predictions to high latitude
paths that would normally cross the auroral zones from the low or middle
latitudes. North America to Europe (and visa-versa) and North America to Japan
(and visa-versa) are the primary circuits for these predictions.
Trans-equatorial predictions are still under investigation and
will be made available here as soon as possible.
160 Meter Radio Propagation Options
These services, when used properly, should improve the performance of Topband
operators by providing valuable information on parameters that can affect 160
meter radio signal propagation.
