I you can write PHP some things are very easy to do by yourseslf.
Otherwise you need some help.
I use twitter. And via this medium i follow DO1CO. He is tweeting the latest Solar flux info.
On a day i did ask him how he get the code from the solar flux.

He told me that he is a good PHP writer. I ask him if he would like to write a script for my header.
This morning i has a mail from chris with the first release. A beta.! It is working. 🙂
After a few hours he send me another email with a new script file. He told me the one i was using makes  a lot of trafic so he renewed the script.
I’ve  updated the script and it is working ever sinds.

Thans to DO1CO Chris i now have a solor script running in the header of the website.

Peter PD1AJJ and Elmar PD3EM will be active with the special event callsign PD55RADAR between 4 – 14 september 2010.

RaDAR is short for Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio. This is an international concept of Radio Amateurs being able to operate anywhere under all circumstances.
The goal is to setup an Amateur Radio station quickly on remote sites anywhere using only battery power. And anywhere means not only sites reachable by car but also on locations after a few miles walk. The 5×5 concept means being able to communicate by Amateur Radio within 5 minutes after arriving with the QRP power of 5 watts maximum.

Peter and Elmar will participate in the IARU HF SSB Fieldday (september 4-5) from the Dutch polders near the famous windmills of Kinderdijk. They will use their Yaesu FT-817 which means QRP only so keep your ears open!

The rest of the period they will be operating PD55RADAR in their free-time which will mainly be during the evenings

Thitu Island (Pagasa in Filipino) is the second largest island in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. The island has a landing strip (Rancudo Airfield) and a small harbour.
There are 100 inhabitants, mostly military, fishermen and a weatherman.
A view of the island shows the landing strip apparently covered in sand and taking up a disproportionately large amount of area of the island.
