Most radio amateurs that pursue DX, contests, and special events have a variety of propagation tools to help them find the best bands and operating times.

Here is another propagation tool that is simple to understand and easy to use...no complicated mathematical analysis or predictive tools are needed to get the status of propagation in your area.

According to the website, "The information is not based on any software predictions or any kind of satellite based readings."  The tool uses an ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry", which is similar to  the PolSAR system used by NASA.

You can reach the website by going directly to:  http://www.bandconditions.com.
