We will be holding this meeting at a DIFFERENT LOCATION and TIME, so please make note that the February 4, 2016 meeting will be held at the Kamloops Innovation Centre Society, 348 Tranquille Road, Kamloops https://goo.gl/3XdHkf (see map at right) and the meeting starts at 7PM.

If you'd like to do some background reading and preparation before the presentation, please see the file attachments below. The New DX’ers Handbook, Chapter 6 “DX Propagation Basics” provides a good basic explanation of HF propagation.

An excellent resource, albeit a bit complex, is the NM7M “The Little Pistol’s Guide to HF Propagation”, available for free download (15MB!) at: http://k9la.us/NM7M_The_Little_Pistol_s_Guide_to_HF_Propagation.pdf
