Hi guys:

Im getting ready to start prepping for the contest this weekend.
ALthough i dont have a lot of specialized antennas, or a monster
station  (706mkIIG and a rotatable dipole) i enjoy figuring out where
the best times of propagation should be in preparation for a contest.
I had a method worked out a few years ago, but after a 9 month layoff
from radio  (long story) and a rotor failure, ive kinda lost how i was
doing it.  I would be interested to hear how you guys prepare a work
chart / any recomendations that you have for data / software etc.  I
know i used to use the prop charts in CQ mag, but im not sure if i
have / can find this months issue, so if there are other / better ways
of getting the data, id be interested in that too.

Thanks a bunch, i'll look forward to your responses.
