Got to www.qsl.net/w6elprop   and download the free program from 
W6EL.  Then go to ARRL website and look for an article by Carl K9LA on how 
to use the W6EL program to roll your own planning.  That is at 
www.arrl.org/tis/info/propagation.html   and scroll toward the bottom for 
the .pdf file "An Introductory Tutorial to W6ELProp."  Carl also has some 
articles on propagation and band planning for DX travel and contesting that 
ran in NCJ.  I am not sure where to point you to find those articles; maybe 
a source on www.ncjweb.com   for starters.
