If you use the add on HamCap program for propagation prediction, you may find that it doesn't work beyond December 2019.  That's because the predicted sunspot numbers within it ended in December 2019.

See https://swling.com/blog/2020/01/ham-cap-and-voa-prop-fixing-ssn-look-up-files/  for a replacement SSN.dat  file that can simply be pasted into it's app data directory to update it.

This solved the problem for me.

Gary,

Thanks for the reminder. However, the link you referenced is pointing to data from VP9KF's "guesses" in 2018.

I would recommend instead using the updated SSN number info for Hamcap directly from the Hamcap author's site.
