WWROF

The World Wide Radio Operators Foundation is a foundation created by amateur radio operators in 2009 to advance the state of the art in radio operating. In March 2022, WWROF funded a $10,000 grant to purchase a new server to run the numerical models and host the prop.kc2g.com website.

Open Source

This site began as a fork of Matt Smith AF7TI's "giroapp" and "giroviz", for which we are grateful, and all of the code for the site is provided under open-source licenses.

In addition, the site would never have been possible without dozens of other open-source projects, including Python, Perl, NumPy, SciPy, pandas, matplotlib, cartopy, george, Flask, IRI-2016, IGRF-13, WMM2020, the space-physics packages iri2016, igrf, and wmm2020, Mojolicious, Minion, PostgreSQL, Podman, and many more.
