Reference information

Interactive Weather Information Network IWIN  by the U. S. National Weather Service is a excellent page to get all facets of current weather information.  It has everything from local, national and world weather conditions, to animations, audio and video feeds and current active warnings for Floods, Special Marine, Severe Thunderstorms, Tornados and Winter storms.  One of the best weather sites I've seen.
NOAA Space Environment Center Here you can get the latest "solar forecast", like those you hear on WWV,  the radio voice of the National Bureau of Standards.  These messages help us to know what the quality of long range radio communications is likely to be. This link takes you to the web site of NOAA's Space Environment Center.  This is a fascinating web site.  You can go to the home page by clicking the link to the left. To go directly to the page that has the WWV solar / geophysical forecast (updated every 3 hours) click HERE.
How Stuff Works This is such an outstanding site, I can't give enough praise.  Topics on just about everything, even on things you'd never imagine asking about! Highly entertaining and educational. We highly recommend it.
Sunspots and the Solar Cycle You know that sometimes your SSB radio "gets out" better than other times.  Do you want to learn more about that?  Propagation of your radio signals is profoundly affected by our Sun and SUNSPOTS!  This is an excellent site to learn all about it.
