DX_Central is a desktop application for those interested in observing the earth's sun or it's effect on radio propagation. This small application provides images of the sun and vital, timely information about solar activity in a way that is concise and easy to use. Information displayed is from NASA, NIST, I Torsomo Objservatory Norway, and other reliable sources in the most up to date version available. The information will automatically update every 10 minutes if allow to be active on the desktop.
We proudly present this second generation offer of the DX Central Desktop widget. New features and a new look are central to this version. It is designed to provide fast access to information from disparate sources in a compact and easy to use format. The v2.00 features a new interface with more graphical indicators on the summary page than version 1.xx. In addition to new indicators, the new NASA SDO images are now part of the project Courtesy of SDO (NASA) and the [AIA, EVE, and/or AIA] consortium. A basic help system has been provided from the menu or by pressing F1.
