HF Radio Propagation Course

To increase the value of IPS services to our customers, IPS Radio and Space Services offers one day courses on HF radio propagation. Courses can be tailored to suit the audience by emphasising topics of special interest. Participants receive the IPS HF Radio Propagation Course manual.

The scheduled courses consist of four sections:

  1. The ionosphere, its structure and its effect on HF radio propagation.
  2. HF radio propagation via the sky wave.
  3. Disturbances in the Sun-Earth environment and the effects on HF radio propagation.
  4. The IPS web site and predictions.

Further details on course content can be obtained by emailing
