Propagation

Solar CME and Earth's magnetic fieldWelcome to the RSGB’s Propagation Information pages. Brought to you by the Propagation Studies Committee

This page and the sub pages associated with it are here to assist in the understanding and advancement of Radio Propagation comprehension.

They are put together and maintained by the RSGB’s Propagation Studies Committee, more information on the committee can be found on the¬†committee’s page, below the ‘about us/how are we organised/committees sub pages. A good place to start is to insert a topic into your favourite search engine, however, below is a short list of beginner type links to get started.
