Where has the site Band conditions gone?

Where did the site Band conditions go?? I have this site as one of my tabs on the blog and it either seems the link has been changed, the site is temporally down or it's gone? Does anyone have info on this maybe I missed the memo about a new link to the site?

  1. Hmmm maybe a firewall thing at this end thanks for the info I will look into things here further.

  5. I have found that most "solar forecast" tools are unreliable. This past weekend it predicted poor conditions on HF. I turned my radio on during the CQ WW CW contest and found signals from around the world.

    1. Very true Mike and I too believe that no matter what the solar forecast page says get on the radio and see what happens.

  11. From other source: ('stole his explenation')
    The website owner was having financial difficulties. It is a good site for USA E-W band determinations but to much weighting was given to 160 and 80 meters as no adjustment was made to account for low frequency absorption. I hope he can get it going again. ---Layne AE1N

  12. I'd pay a subscription for the website if required. I'm sure many others would too.
