This page shows recorded signal strength of a VLF radio station operating on 23.4kHz located in Germany.
Solar (X-ray) flares, amongst other events, can cause changes in the ionosphere which result in enhanced received signal strengths.
Details of the receiving equipment are here.

The upper plot shows the last 6h of recording.
The lower plot shows the complete 24h records for the previous day and the current day.

The plots are updated every 5 minutes.

The 6h GOES satellite X-ray data from NOAA/SWPC is shown for comparison. Link to their 3-day X-ray plot.

Refresh your browser for the latest plotted data. The SID plots are made using RadioSkyPipe.
