DX Toolbox searches the web for you, gathering information on solar and geomagnetic conditions that affect radio propagation. It also contains several propagation forecasting tools.
It displays in real-time the following important readings:Solar Flux A-Index K-Index X-Ray Flux levels X-Ray flares Solar Wind Earth's Magnetic Field Radio Blackout conditions Geomagnetic Storm conditions Solar Radiation Storm conditions
In addition, the last month's worth of Solar Flux, A-Index, K-Index, Sun Spot Number, and background X-Ray Flux are plotted.
Maps showing auroral levels, as well as the maximum F layer frequency (related to MUF) over various parts of the world are also displayed.
A grayline map of the world is displayed
Propagation conditions can also be estimated between two points on the Earth.
DX grid locations can be calculated, as well as located on a world map.
What's new in this version:
Better parsing of x-ray flux data. Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if no location was chosen in one of the three propagation path forecasting windows.
