Hi Alan, WA4SCA

As a satellite operator I need to stink at sunspots and sun activity looking
periodically at the Solar Radio Flux here let say every week

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/indices/DSD.txt

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/ftpdir/latest/curind.txt

When I know the value of the Solar Flux in sfu's I can measure the Sun-Noise
received by my satellite receiving systems particularly at 2400 MHz and I
can see it the healt state of it is nominal or not.

The above procedure is particularly used by all EME'rs

Our very well calibrated signal source at no cost is the Sun

If someone is interest in the above procedure and the software to be used
please let me know.
