Here are some details of this Propagation tool.........


Zone to Zone Propagation information will be available for the CQWW and
other 2008-2009 contests from Radio Sport Canada

ZoneProp uses an widely accepted propagation engine to determine the band on
which a contestant in one CQ DX zone is likely to be able to contact a
contestant in another CQ DX zone taking into account the current geomagnetic

ZoneProp produces a 40 zone by 40 zone matrix that is updated hourly at
approximately 20 minutes past the hour. The intersection between a row and
column gives the band on which a contestant in the zone represented by the
row is mostly likely able to contact an contestant in the zone represented
by the column. The zone numbers in the left hand column are clickable. Once
clicked the information for that zone is displayed in isolation above a map
of CQ DX zones. The pages are refreshed every 10 minutes in order to capture
hourly updates of the matrix

For technical details see

ZoneProp is designed for high speed Internet access using IE 6/7 or a recent
release of FireFox. It has not been tested in other browsers or on slow
speed (e.g. dialup) Internet access.

Good luck in the contests
