MicroMUF HF Propagation Calculator is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you calculate the MUF and LUF values between two points. These frequency values are useful for shortwave listening or amateur radio.
You can store MicroMUF HF Propagation Calculator on USB flash drives or other devices and run it on the target system without administrative privileges. What’s more, you can access its features by running the executable file. No traces are left behind on the host computer.
The GUI looks intuitive and embeds all configuration settings in a single panel. If you need extra assistance with the configuration process, you can check out the ‘Readme’ file included in the package.
MicroMUF HF Propagation Calculator gives you the possibility to input the solar flux and month, as well as source/destination latitude and longitude coordinates. Based on the aforementioned parameters, the program is able to automatically display a graph with the required MUF (maximum usable frequency) and LUF (lowest usable frequency) values versus the UTC hour for the radio day.
What’s more, the application shows details about the azimuth values to/from the destination, distance, as well as number of hops in the path. On the downside, you cannot copy the graph to the clipboard and export it to an image file on your computer.
Tests have shown that MicroMUF HF Propagation Calculator carries out calculations quickly. It does not eat up a lot of CPU and memory resources so the overall performance of the system is not hampered.
All things considered, MicroMUF HF Propagation Calculator delivers a straightforward solution for helping you estimate the maximum usable frequency for two points. The intuitive design makes it suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
