The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for Contesters interested in increasing their scores.
It can also be of benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets and casual QSO’s.
This information is NOT based on any software predictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a new Ionospheric sounding method called “HF Ionospheric Interferometry” which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.
Also, check out the VOACAP predication Web page at: http://www.voacap.com/prediction.html
Here is a new digital mode that comes to you from the makers of JT-9 and JT-65.. Called FT-8 (Franke-Taylor design, 8FSK modulation)
A weak signal mode that is not as sensitive to JT-65/9 but definitely something that will work when voice and CW will not. This is an introduction to someone who has never heard of it, or never has used JT-65 before. It may not be for everyone, but everyone should try it.

I am looking for a second hand Kenwood TS590G (manufactured after 2014) as per below description taken from G3NRW website.
Max price EUR 700.
Tnx 73 , Andrea HB9DUR
The TS‑590 was superseded in October 2014 by the TS‑590G, again produced in three power versions: TS‑590SG (100W), TS‑590DG (50W) and TS‑590VG (10W).
There is little difference in the outward appearance of the TS‑590 and the TS‑590G. The main distinguishing feature between the two is the legend on the front panel above the LCD display: the TS‑590 has the legend DSP, whereas the TS‑590G has the legend HF/50 MHz Transceiver TS-590.
