IC Graph by N5TW
Sample Graph Image
This is an example of the propagation prediction
charts generated by IC Graph. Click on the
image for a high resolution version.

IC Graph is a Visual Basic application written for use inside Microsoft Excel. It uses the IONCAP HF propagation software engine to produce data that it then charts. IC Graph requires Microsoft Excel 97 or higher, IONCAP, and an input .INP file to run.

IONCAP is available from many sources, and is the engine behind many commercial software propagation products. Tom recommends WinCAP Wizard from Kangaroo Tabor Software. Another alternative is CAPman, also available from Kangaroo Tabor Software, but CAPman is a bit arcane and will not run on computers faster than 700 MHz.

Files

contest.INP has the "input card deck" used to produce the runs. It can be edited, but data is column sensitive, so be careful. For questions or comments on the software, please contact Tom Whiteside N5TW.
