PropView 1.0.4 is available for beta test

PropView uses the IonCAP propagation prediction engine to forecast the
minimum and maximum useable frequencies between two locations over a
specified 24 hour period. Results are rendered in an easy-to-understand
color-graphic display. Locations can be specified via direct
latitude/longitude entry. Alternatively, PropView interoperates with DXView
to allow location selection by entering a DXCC prefix, or by selecting
locations on a world map; this interoperation requires DXView version 1.2.7.
PropView requires a PC running Windows 9X, 2000, NT, or XP with an SVGA or
better display. This application is free, and contains no advertising.
Commercial use is expressly forbidden.
PropView is available for download via www.qsl.net/propview ;IonCAP
installation is included in the process. For a sample screenshot, see

DXView, given a callsign, callsign fragment, or prefix, determines the
associated DXCC entity, reporting its location and beam heading from your
QTH. DXView presents a world map, upon which beam headings, stations you
spot, the sun's position, and the solar terminator are continuously
displayed. DXView can also display country maps for more than 250 DXCC
entities. DXView supports M2, Hygain DCU-compatible (with or without
Rotor-EZ), and Yaesu PC-controlled rotator controllers, allowing you to
select a short-path or long-path heading with one mouse click.
If you've already installed DXView, you can upgrade by downloading
http://www.qsl.net/dxview/DXView127Update.exe - store it in your DXView
folder and execute it; you can then run the extracted DXView127.exe . If
you've not installed DXView, a full install is available via
PropView and DXView are members of the DXLab Suite, described at
