Propagation forecasts are like weather forecasts. They only give an indication of what might happen. Despite the forecast, you may or may not be able to hear the beacon on any given day. Hover over the propagation color bars for predicted Signal strength, Reliability, SNR, and MUFday. Click color bars for a detailed propagation forecast for the path from the beacon to your location. A grey forecast indicates a weak signal but a greater than 10% chance of a surprise opening. LP indicates that the long path signal is expected to be stronger than the short path signal.
