From ARRL, which is concerned about sunspots as they relate to radio propagation rather than climate science:
Tad "Suspended in the blinding, sunlit blue" Cook, K7RA, this week
reports: The quiet Sun continues to baffle us. If there are no sunspots
today -- and I don't expect any to emerge -- this will be the 42nd day
in a row with no sunspots; July 10 was the last day we saw any spots.
There is really no way to predict when the next sunspot will appear. If
we see no sunspots through the end of the month, then nearly 80 percent
of 2009 so far will have been spotless.
Sunspot numbers for August 13-19
were 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 and 0 with a mean of 0. The 10.7 cm flux was 67.2,
67.6, 68.1, 68.8, 68.1, 67.4 and 67.1 with a mean of 67.8. The estimated
planetary A indices were 5, 4, 3, 3, 3, 4 and 10 with a mean of 4.6. The
estimated mid-latitude A indices were 3, 2, 1, 0, 2, 2 and 8 with a mean
of 2.6. For more information concerning radio propagation, visit the
