Radio propagation is the science of how effectively radio waves travel across different mediums to go from source to destination. Radio propagation is often difficult to understand and predict. It can be very spontaneous and localized. Variables such as solar indexes and geomagnetic fields can help provide a base-line idea, but often fail to provide detailed, location-specific propagation data. Introducing D-WARP: D-WARP, or Detailed WSPR Analysis of Radio Propagation is a computer controlled radio receiving system that utilizes Software Defined Radio to continuously capture, log, and analyze traffic from the WSPR system of digital radio beacons in order to provide a more detailed and localized picture of radio propagation trends. In this presentation, we will discuss how the D-WARP system works, and how it can help aid in the understanding of radio propagation through its data analysis algorithms.
