PropView Online Help

PropView uses the included IONCAP, ICEPAC, and VOACAP propagation prediction engines to forecast the minimum and maximum useable frequencies between two locations over a specified 24 hour period. Results are rendered in an easy-to-understand color-graphic display.  You can specify locations via direct latitude/longitude entry. Alternatively, PropView interoperates with DXView (version 1.5.1 or later) to allow location selection via DXCC prefix entry or by clicking on locations on a world map.

PropView can assess actual propagation by monitoring beacons in the NCDXF/IARU Network, either by band, by location, or by bearing from your QTH. When Commander (version 3.7.3 or later) is running, PropView can automatically QSY your radio to the current beacon's frequency. When DXView is running, PropView can display the current beacon location on DXView's world map and rotate your antenna to the appropriate bearing.
