Installation files for recent versions of radio system prediction software are available here. To install a program, download and save the installation file. Next, right-mouse click the file and then run it as an Administrator. The InstallShield Wizard instructions are self-explanatory.
When the program is run for the first time, it will prompt the user to enter a valid software registration key. If no valid registration key is entered, the program will enter the demo mode with limited functionality. The ASAPS demo mode restricts predictions to a fixed date (January of the current year), level of ionospheric activity (T index=50), and the amateur frequency set; otherwise the user is free to input a range of data, and explore the program's different display formats.

ASAPS provides the prediction of sky wave communication system performance in the HF (High Frequency) radio spectrum (1 to 30 MHz) and basic surface wave performance in the medium frequency (300 kHz -3 MHz) and low HF (3-5 MHz) range.
ASAPS is under continual development – see the history of released versions.
Platforms supported by ASAPS are as follows.
