Re: Where & When propagation tool

Guten Tag Joerg,

I look forward to your new tool. I generally use ICEPAC (ITS HF), mostly with the user interface provided by Airmail which makes it pretty easy to interpret. The native ICEPAC interface is indeed less than user friendly if you don't use it often.

An additional benefit of Airmail with either Winlink or Sailmail is that the sunspot data is updated every time you connect. Waiting for the information on WWV (and I assume CHC, VNG, JJY, ZSC, and others) can be boring and disruptive to other tasks.

I think that a non-Internet based update mechanism is necessary however for those at sea or otherwise without Internet.

I looked at your website. Very interesting. The English version has a good bit of Deutsch intermixed, and the English needs a good bit of polishing.

sail fast and eat well, dave
