Outstanding!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This has to be the neatest thing since sliced bread. This software suite includes Omni-Rig which allows the software to control your CAT enabled rig/receiver to switch to the various International beacons, monitor and record their activity. Uses the internet to keep your PC time precise. The soundcard is utilized to decode the CW transmissions noting whether it is long or short path.This gives you a true picture of world-wide propagation at your QTH.

If you operate on the HF bands this is a must have piece of software. It is easy to use, understand and install. You may be surprised to find out that some bands are actually open to various parts of the world!

This is clearly the most valuable and interesting amateur radio software I have come across in years!
