Mark WM7D, has page that aggregates solar and geomagnetic measurements that can be used to predict band conditions.

This site has a little black window that shows coarsely calculated band conditions You could easily turn band calculations into full time job--if someone were willing to adequately fund it.

Maybe you can--I looked at the copyright info, plugged that into google.com, and found out that you can install that propagation box on a web page or desktop.
