geomagnetic effects at high latitudes, equatorial scattering, DX over 10000 km, etc.).urrently there is no way to adequately model global irregular variations in the ionosphere on a time scale smaller than a month because random values cannot be predicted.But they can be described statistically or take into account using near-real-time data.The maps will be stored in the \Gifs subdirectory of the Ham Cap directory; If you have Iono Probe installed on your system, go to the Settings tab in Ham CAP and press the Iono Probe button.
Tom & Ken, the masters behind "TEAM VERTICAL": : FACTORY (1995): Tom Shiller (N6BT, Dave Leeson (W6NL, HC8L), Bob Wilson (N6TV), myself, Trey Garlough (N5KO, HC8N).
They are on-the-air oriented and show an excellent accuracy if you know the limitations of algorithms as well as the meaning of each parameter, specially setting the SSN, the reliability or the S/N ratio where a wrong data can false all your forecast, and for example predict a poor signal strength and a band closed although it is wide opened with a strong signal !
There are at least two kinds of VOACAP-based applications : the ones running VOACAP algorithms without correction and those, very few, having added new functions to improve its accuracy under some working conditions (e.g.
The area prediction data will be superimposed on the DX Atlas map, and you will be able to magnify and scroll the map, and view it in the Azimuthal and 3D projections.
Ham CAP provides a COM/OLE Automation interface that 3-rd party programs can use to start Ham CAP, set prediction parameters, and run predictions.
