In my new ARRL book, Propagation and Radio Science, I spend a fair amount of time talking about Proplap Pro 3.  Proplab is the ONLY prediction software out there that takes in to account the Earth's magnetic field and ionospheric tilt, and thus is the only reasonably accurate software out there for REAL WORLD conditions.

There's a bit of a learning curve if you've never done 3D ray tracing, but the results are amazing....and often surprising and counterintuitive.  It is the only program that REMOTELY describes propagation in Interior Alaska, and it does a real good job.

If anyone here wants to explore this wonderful program, let me know.

What method(s) do you employ to quantitatively assess the prediction accuracy of PropLab Pro 3 and other propagation forecasting applications, like VOACAP?
