Long Wave Inc. has put the finishing touches on our newly enhanced version of the ACE-HF Network. We have created this software to be more user-friendly with clearer steps for completing your circuits along with updated graphics and maps, while still maintaining the accuracy that ACE-HF is known for.
Follow this link ACE-HF Network Walkthrough for more ACE-HF Network screenshots.
Includes an easy-to-use Navigation Tree, which you have the ability to minimize via the arrow button giving you a full screen view of the two Quick Launch Buttons that will direct you to creating your Point-to-Point Circuit or you Network Circuits.
Consists of two points, each having one Transmitter, one Receiver antenna and the System Parameters for the circuit.
There are multiple Location categories to choose from including US, World, US Military, World Military, HFCC, DXCC and/or User locations. An improved antenna selection capability permits the User to specify and select an unlimited number of antenna models based on manufacturer, model number, wavelength, height, ground quality and frequency.
This configures the frequencies the system will analyze and will be the basis for the calculations represented for all the charts utilized by the User.
Visibly shows the Radiation pattern from the Transmitter Site Location for the specific time-of-day and Frequencies.
A bar graph charting SNR where the values are interpolated to five-minute intervals.
Updates automatically whenever a circuit change is made and gives Maximum Usable Frequency predictions vs. time-of-day.
The purpose of the Terminal A Overview Screen is to configure the location, transmitter, receiver and scenario type for the Network.
Main Screen of Network Frequency Management where it allows the User to easily switch from chart to chart using the top row Situational Awareness Map button.
This chart shows a table of circuit predictions vs. frequency. Each display is for a selected hour.
This table is used to create best frequency plans for each circuit using the same predictions in a time-of-day vs. frequency format one circuit at a time.
