Starting abt an hour b4 your sunrise on 80 and 40 CW. Pay attention to the terminator passing over you vs the "down under" target as the path changes with the seasons. Signals can rise and fall in 15/20 minutes. HTH.

Once you do, this will bring up a PDF with 12 graphs. Each graph has the time (in GMT of course) along the bottom and frequency (in MHz) along the left side. So let's say you want to work Australia. Look at the first graph in the second row. You will see that from about 1800z until about 0200z the red and green lines are well above 28 which means that conditions are favorable for working into Australia on any band up to and including 10 meters. You will also see that the green line never dips below 14 MHz which means that conditions are favorable for 20 meters just about any time.
But remember, these are only predictions (scientific as they are), NOT guarantees!
