REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
(REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

where he will be able to see down to the horizon to the north. Once he
has everything together he will be able to work down low and work more
stations in the U.S. He is using an Arrow antenna and two FM mobile units.

went away years ago. He will be on St. Kitts for a few weeks and he hopes
to work everyone that needs it. SO-50 only. He will QSL via LoTW, but
