Enhanced ACE-HF Network

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.

NEW ACE-HF Network Home Page

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.

Point-to-Point Scenario Screen

Point-to-Point Scenario Screen

Consists of two points, each having one Transmitter, one Receiver antenna and the System Parameters for the circuit.

Receiver Site Location and Antenna Setup

Receiver Site Location and Antenna Setup

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.

System Parameters Channel Frequencies

System Parameters Channel Frequencies

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.

Area Coverage Map Color

Area Coverage Map Color

Visibly shows the Radiation pattern from the Transmitter Site Location for the specific time-of-day and Frequencies.

Circuit Analysis Best Frequency

Circuit Analysis Best Frequency

A bar graph charting SNR where the values are interpolated to five-minute intervals.

Circuit Analysis Max Useable Frequency

Circuit Analysis Max Useable Frequency

Updates automatically whenever a circuit change is made and gives Maximum Usable Frequency predictions vs. time-of-day.

Network Terminal A Location Setup

Network Terminal A Location Setup

The purpose of the Terminal A Overview Screen is to configure the location, transmitter, receiver and scenario type for the Network.

Network Frequency Management & Situational Awareness Map

Network Frequency Management & Situational Awareness Map

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.

Circuit Chart

Circuit Chart

This chart shows a table of circuit predictions vs. frequency. Each display is for a selected hour.

Circuit Dwell Time Chart

Circuit Dwell Time Chart

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.
