Created by Tad Cook (K7RA) bandconditions.com is an experimental Website providing 24/7/365 actual (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for Contesters interested in increasing their scores.
It can also be of benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets and casual QSO's.
This information is NOT based on any software predictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry" which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.
