  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  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 pre-
  dictions 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.

V4, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS (On the Bird). John, V47JA/W5JON, has been oper-
ating on SO-50 from St. Kitts with some success. The problem for him is
that there is terrain in the way from about 320 degrees, north to east,
so he is limited to what he can work from his house there. John is putting
together what he will need to operate portable from the top of the hill
where he will be able to see down to the horizon to the north. Once he
has everything together he will be able to work down low and work more
stations in the U.S. He is using an Arrow antenna and two FM mobile units.
He is not a newcomer to the birds, but hasn't operated since the HEO's
went away years ago. He will be on St. Kitts for a few weeks and he hopes
to work everyone that needs it. SO-50 only. He will QSL via LoTW, but
might wait until he returns to Texas to get everyone uploaded.
