Propagation prediction

I am including propagation predictions for four areas below, to give an idea of when openings are possible to each major target area. What they indicate can be summarised:

  • Eu should be reasonably workable, with high bands open in the late morning onwards and low bands into the evening and hours of darkness

  • The US should likewise be possible, but with times shifted a few hours later

  • JA and Asia is going to be difficult but may be possible later at night

  • VK probably won't be workable, especially as the GC route fires into a mountain in the centre of the island (unless the QTH is in the south, in which case Eu/USA will not be easily workable)

Prediction from UK:

Prediction from Eastern US:

Many thanks to Jari, OH6BG, and friends for setting this up for my ZD7 location.
