I'm not looking for an explanation here, just some links or resources where I can learn about solar activity and propagation. I've searched the web but I have been able to find anything the was concise and well organized.

I made something with Flash ages ago that people seem to like. It takes about five minutes to get through.

The best concise propagation explanation I have ever seen is by Paul Harden, NA5N

http://www.qrparci.org/mambo/pdf/FDIM81.pdf

I attended this talk at the QRP ARCI sponsored "Four Days in May" event at Dayton in 2005 and
anytime I want a propagation refresher this is where I go.

Thanks. That is exactly what I was looking for: quick, dirty (nice presentation by the way), and practical.

Thanks for the link. I think I have read it before. It is one of the few resources that did help me somewhat but I sort of got lost reading it. I did like how it explained about how the sun's weather works in some detail but I had trouble boiling it down. Now that I've been through AE4RVs presentation I'll reread this and I think it will help deepen my understanding.
