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.
Oct 7 2020 - HAMQSL Updates and Upgrades in Progress
Items in progress:
- Special thanks to Andrew KC2G and Alan N5PA for identifying a reliable source for MUF for Athens,GR; Hermanus,ZA; Sondrestrom,GL; Alaska,US; Niue IS; Darwin,AU; Tromso,NO; Mawson,AQ;
Jicamarca,PE; Port Stanley,FK; Ascencion IS; Jeju IS; and Millstone Hill. This has been fixed on all selectable MUF banners, and specifically the marston.php and solarmuf.php banners.
Data updated every 10 minutes and validated to be less than 1 day old (otherwise displays No Report)
- Site is secure SSL from Clouldflare. Just substitute https:// vs http:// in the banner links
- Separate CRON job for Boulder MUF updated every 10 minutes and validated to be less than 1 hour old (otherwise displays No Report)
- CRON jobs fixed so data and images are once again updated every 30 minutes
- Background X-Ray and Flare strength (both used in predicted forecast for all bands) fixed (new reliable source)
- Proton & Electron Flux fixed (new reliable source)
- Boulder MUF, fof2, and MUF factor fixed (new reliable source thanks to Alan N5PA)
- xml and rss outputs updated (with new sources)
- Updated NOAA SWPC WSA-Enlil Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) Solar Wind Prediction pages
Please let me know if I break/or you see anything while fixing these issues. Lets hope the lousy Solar Cycle 25 forecast is totaly wrong (as have been in the past).
- 6m North America propagation
- If you have a source please let me know. Understand I will need their permission, and so far at least one reliable source has refused.
- Broken links and outdated information as well as new data as it becomes available
HF Propagation Tools and Solar Data are now on multiple pages for faster loading

- Select desired item from box. Page refresh updates all images at once.
- On the dial background color schemes, green indicates that values in this range are unlikely to disturb the near-Earth space environment. Yellow indicates that values in this range may contribute to disturbances, and Red indicates that values in this range are likely to drive disturbances. This scheme is valid for all dials except the "Log[Beta]" dial
