WaveGuide is the amateur radio operator's ultimate utility for determining HF propagation conditions at the touch of a finger.

Utilizing data from popular DX clusters like PSK Reporter, DX Watch , and Reverse Beacon Network , WaveGuide plots real-time propagation conditions on a global map, connecting stations with great circles to show exactly where band conditions are best.

The colors of the great circles indicate the band, so it's easy to visually determine how the ionosphere is behaving anywhere in the world.

WaveGuide was designed from the ground-up as a Universal app that works great on all iOS devices, including iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

Features

  • Filter your search by parameters such as band, callsign, grid square, mode, and time period.
  • View details for each transmission, including time, DXCC entity, frequency, distance, and bearing.
  • Find your current Maidenhead grid locator using the GPS receiver on your iOS device.
  • Check on space weather indices and images.
  • Overlay the gray line on the map.

Some Example Uses

  • See how band conditions fluctuate worldwide throughout the course of the day.
  • Chase rare DX stations using the DX Watch cluster.
  • Find out if that new antenna is really getting out: tap out your callsign in CW and see who picks you up on the Reverse Beacon Network.
  • Using PSK Reporter, track signals received by your home station while you're away. How many countries can you collect?
