VOACAP Online now offers coverage area predictions

    Message from Jari Perkiömäki, OH6BG

    I am pleased to inform that VOACAP Online – a free online service for making professional point-to-point HF propagation predictions – now uses Google Maps for coordinate entry. This should make the service even more usable and accessible, also for a casual user. The transmitter and receiver coordinates are defined by dragging two location markers on the map. The mouse wheel or keyboard keys can be used for zooming in and out so placing the markers at the exact points on the map is as accurate as it can get.VOACAP Online predicts the probability of achieving a CW-grade quality contact between the transmitter and the receiver. VOACAP Online uses VOACAP (Voice of America Coverage Analysis Program) as its prediction engine. URL: http://online.voacap.com
