Three Year (2017, 2018 and 2019) Website Support Drive
Closes April 1, 2017.

About the Website

Founded in 2006 as a small spaceweather hobby website, SolarHam evolved into a full time mission and is monitored by thousands of space weather enthusiasts from around the world. Now over 10 years old, SolarHam is routinely updated with breaking space weather news, many times hours before other Space News websites or blogs. You can trust for up to date and accurate space weather information.

Fundraiser Purpose

Why is there a fundraiser?

Even as the sun moves closer towards solar minimum, countless hours of my time, each and every day of the year is dedicated towards maintaining the website and ensuring all data is accurate for my website audience. In addition to the obvious costs associated with operating SolarHam, website hosting fees, internet bandwidth, disk space etc, I work hard at maintaining the website in order to make an honest living and to ensure the bills are paid.

The website remains online thanks to the generous support of people like you. This years goal will fund the website for the next three years (2017, 2018 and 2019) instead of the usual one year as per past fundraising campaigns.
