WaveGuide is the amateur radio operator's ultimate utility for determining HF propagation conditions at the touch of a finger.

Utilizing data from popular DX clusters like PSK Reporter, DX Watch, Reverse Beacon Network, and WSPRnet, WaveGuide plots real-time propagation conditions on a global map, connecting stations with great circles to show exactly where band conditions are best. The colors of the great circles indicate the band, so it's easy to visually determine how the ionosphere is behaving anywhere in the world.

WaveGuide was designed from the ground-up as a Universal app that works great on all iOS devices, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

WaveGuide is commonly used to:

- See how band conditions fluctuate worldwide throughout the course of the day.
- Chase rare DX stations using the DX Watch cluster.
- Find out if that new antenna is really getting out: tap out your callsign in CW and see who picks you up on the Reverse Beacon Network.
- Using PSK Reporter, track signals received by your home station while you're away. How many countries can you collect?
- Be the first one to see a band opening by observing WSPRnet contacts, or see how far your QRPp setup will get out!

WaveGuide includes powerful features such as:

- Filter your search by parameters such as band, callsign, grid square, mode, and time period.
- View details for each transmission, including time, DXCC entity, frequency, distance, and bearing.
- Find your current Maidenhead grid locator using GPS.
- Check on space weather indices and images.
- Overlay the gray line on the map.

App doesn’t work???

I really was looking forward to this app. After purchase the app opens but there is no data.
What happened? Please fix or refund me.

Hey APP Store wake up

I wonder why Apple let’s this kind of stuff happen. I would think someone within Apple would monitor non performing apps and kick them out. Makes the App Store look bad. Or maybe they just don’t care if we spend money on apps and we just threw it away, I’m sure Apple still got their cut. I’m tired of crap apps.

Developer Response ,

Sorry you had a bad experience. The app has been fixed in version 1.4.1.
