Of course I think my Solar Widget(s) are the best, but there are other free sources available. You choose which one you like the best.
- Julian (G4ILO) offers an html panel (WebProp) with SN, flux, Indicies, and band conditions.
- Patrick (N0HR) offers a solar panel (PropagationStats) with flux, Indicies, and warnings.
- Kevin (N3KL) offers two status bars for X-ray and Geomag field.
- Anthony (KA9NWM) at wattsupwiththat offers a World Climate Widget with SN, Flux, and solar image.
- Allard (PE1NWL) at DXrobot - Gouda offers five band condition status bars for VHF Aurora, North American 2m Es, and Europe 2/4/6m Es.
- Ansgar (DG2KBC) at Make More Miles on VHF offers three status graphs for EME, Europe Es and Meteor Scatter.
- Elmer (PH5E) at Rig Reference offers a widget that indicates which current HF bands are open.
- Claudio (IW1QLH) at HRDLOG offers a gadget that indicates current HF activity, solar image, solar flux, & sunspot number.
- Derek (W4DTB) at OCRA offers a gadget that uses the N0NBH xml file to create a text and image gadget similar to what I offer from a php file. You can download the Source and some examples, along with the readme file from the following link.
- Marv (W4ZD) offers a gadget that uses the N0NBH xml file to create an html color coded band conditions chart. Click the following link, and follow the instructions.

NOAA SWPC WSA-Enlil Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) Solar Wind Prediction Model
- Courtesy of NOAA SWPC.
Still of the latest model run is provided directly below when a CME event is predicted, along with comments from SWPC. A tutorial is provided below that, which
helps in understanding the model output.
- Please visit the NOAA SWPC WSA-Enlil Solar Wind Prediction page for the full functionality of modes, time, speed, and additional information.
- Click link or image to visit the Storm or CME Prediction Model page. Note that SWPC only updates the
CME-based model when there is a potentially earth-directed CME.
- This is a GREAT tool for viewing CME events, and the corresponding solar wind speed and density for use in predicting both Auroral events and HF blackout conditions.
Latest NOAA SWPC WSA-Enlil CME Solar Wind Prediction Model Prediction Run (From SWPC)
- I will post these as I receive them from NOAA SWPC.
- Solid lines are the models. Fuzzy lines are actual data from the ACE spacecraft (Earth), or both Stereo spacecraft. Timeline is the date/time of the run.
- "Mon, Jun 22, 2015 at 9:52 PM. Forecaster analysis is still ongoing to estimate expected intensity,
but the WSA-Enlil model run for the CME that erupted on June 22 in conjunction with an R2 solar flare has the CME hitting Earth at 2300 UT on June 24
(7 pm EDT). Note, the model has the June 22 CME riding along on elevated background wind speeds, which are a result of a weak high speed stream.
This may help offset the known issue with the fast relaxation time of the model behind prior CMEs.
The parameters for this run were
Time at 21.5Rs (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) : 2015-06-22 21:47
CME axis latitude (degrees) : 23
CME axis longitude (degrees) : 8
half angle (degrees) : 45
Radial velocity (km/s) : 1046"
"Thu, Jun 25, 2015 at 11:59 AM. We had another CME erupt early this morning. It's mostly headed to the northwest, but there is still a
significant Earth-directed component. We're on the eastern flank of the event, which means small errors in direction result in large changes
in arrival time prediction. Arrival time from the latest WSA-Enlil run is 6/27 at 17:00 UT. CME parameters are below and the model run with ACE
data overlaid is attached.
Event start date/time: 2015-06-25 11:02 (UTC)
Cone half angle: 47°
Radial Velocity: 1419 km/s
