Interesting new research suggests the next solar sunspot cycle may be a maximum not a minimum -

In direct contradiction to the official forecast, a team of scientists led by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is predicting that the Sunspot Cycle that started this fall could be one of the strongest since record-keeping began.
Quite an good read, time will tell how accurate their prediction is.

As an Amateur radio Operator I can see the effects of the recent Sun Spots, propagation is definitely up on the higher bands above 14 Mhz.

More Sun activity is definitely good news.

The method that spaceweather use to measure spotless days is laughable right now, we're already exceeding last year's levels.

Sunspot number: 0
What is the sunspot number?
