I have been experimenting with HamCap. It uses the VOACap engine to produce propagation maps and charts. As an experiment I have created a series of band-by-hour charts for the UK - now updaetd for January 2010.
These are based on 100W to a dipole at 35ft, with a smoothed sunspot number of 17. They are all short path too. You can try them here.
I think that 20m looks a bit optimistic with propagation way after sunset - time will tell!
Will sunspot 1029 still be active when it comes back around the sun later this month? Will 10m open up again for CQWW CW like it did for CQWW SSB in late October?
