Yasme Foundation Supports ViewProp Developer

07/26/2013

The Board of Directors of The Yasme Foundation has announced that it has made a grant to support further development of ViewProp, a new utility for propagation visualization developed by Rick Kiessig, ZL2HAM. ViewProp integrates information from the Reverse Beacon Network (RBN) and worldwide spotting networks with station location information from QRZ.com and mapping through DXAtlas. The result is a real-time, worldwide view of Amateur Radio signals and operation,” the Yasme Foundation said in a news release. ViewProp also supports a “playback” function to review historical data and provides users with numerous options to configure both the input data stream as well as the way the information is displayed. The software currently is in beta testing by a global user’s group. The Yasme grant will enable ZL2HAM to complete development with appropriate networked software tools and release it for public use. The Yasme Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation organized to conduct scientific and educational projects related to Amateur Radio, including DXing and the introduction and promotion of Amateur Radio in developing countries. — Yasme Foundation
