http://solarham.net/ is a great website to monitor the sun.

Just checked and it is a really good site. Too bad my license expired many years ago. I still listen but zero sunspots make it not so exciting, but there is hope. I could get my CW speed back up with a little practice. Had a 35 wpm certificate back in the day, so fast I had to have a bug.

This will also be good news for Ham Radio people. It makes the airwaves noisier, but you can get some great DX, distance when there are sunspots and flares. I got a license in junior high and remember it was the peak of the eleven year cycle then. One day I heard a faint signal from VK7SM. I was thinking: hey that is Tasmania, almost exactly the opposite side of the world from me then. Then we got in contact and, well, for a nerd like me it doesn't get much more exciting than that. So I tell people that I started out as a nerd.

Is there any relation to this and what is currently happening in Sunspot New Mexico's solar observatory?
