Meanwhile, simply click on any temporary link below to access some information. CAUTION*** Please note that earlier versions of many of the pdfs on this site did not have the Fast Web View option enabled. This forces the browser to remember an older expired document. All recent files have this problem resolved. However, if it is noted that an expired file is displayed rather than a new one: Simply select the Delete Temporary Internet files and website files Browser Option under tools. This should provide the new file and automatically provide subsequent updates to any information that has changed.
This section examines the repeatable characteristics of long-haul, multi-hop, 50 MHz Sporadic E in the Northern Hemisphere.
Understanding these characteristics will allow the avid 6M DXer to leverage on these knowns to realize maximum benefit. The repeatable characteristics are SEASONAL and TIMING (Diurnal) for the path of interest. Correlations to Solar Elevation Angle are included with a focus on statistics. The Es_Predict Utility attempts to statistically predict specific paths based upon a specific diurnal model of choice and a sliding time scale that is keyed to the Local Time at the path midpoint. This tool also includes path analysis and a KML Generator that allows plotting the path(s) of interest on Google Earth.
Thanks & enjoy,
