ATBeacon by 21AT116
Use ATBeacon to track beacons operated by International Beacon Project. Beacons are located all over the world and will help you understand the current propagation. All beacons transmit on the same frequency, this program will help you decode witch beacon is currently on air. Beacons identify themselves in CW followed by 4 dashes where transmitting power is decreased for every dash, see below.
ATBeacon shows Alfa Tango division number, QTH, call sign, short path bearing, long path bearing and distance for all beacons.
ATBeacon will show the beacon currently on air. The beacon window will instantly update when the next beacon is schedule to start.
To make ATBeacon work correctly your PC clock needs to be accurate. To set your clock tune to 15.000 MHz and get the correct time from the WWV transmitter. Then type the time difference in the UTC field of ATBeacon. Enter this value in hours and decimal fractions of an hour (±HH.hh) in the range -12 to 12, using negative values for time zones East of UTC.
Latitude and Longitude values should be entered in decimal values rather than degrees and minutes. A simple conversion is done by using the following formula:
decimal value = degrees + (minutes/60)
