IPS - Advanced Stand Alone Prediction System (ASAPS)
The IPS Advanced Stand Alone Prediction System (ASAPS) allows the prediction of Sky Wave communication conditions in the HF (High Frequency) and low VHF (Very High Frequency) radio spectrum or Short Wave Band (1 to 45 MHz). It is based on an Ionospheric model developed by IPS Radio and Space Services of the Australian Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources, and ITU-R / CCIR models (Rec. ITU-R P.533-7 and CCIR Reports 322). 

ASAPS V5 is a 32-bit application, designed for Pentium-based Personal Computers with the Microsoft Windows Operating System (Windows 95 or higher). A minimum of 32 MegaBytes of RAM and 50 MegaBytes of hard disk space are necessary, and SVGA video is highly recommended. To run the new Area Predictions, you will need a Pentium 233 or better to provide adequate performance, because of the large number of calculations involved. 

ASAPS Version 5.4 is compatible with 32- and 64-bit versions of the Windows operating system. Please let us know if you encounter any problems

Latest: ASAPS Version 5.4 - released April 2010
