It is not possible to distribute a definitive list of all known chirp sounders on a web site, since many of them change from day to day, or week to week. The list below gives those that are known to be reasonably stable, or rather were at the time of publication! Current observations are generally distributed by email.

The times quoted here are the * source* chirp time, i.e. the time
that would be measured by a receiver on the transmitter site. You can
estimate your chirptime by adding 1 ms for every 300 km of range from the
source. For example, for a chirp time of 300:245.000 and a range of 10,000
km, expect the signal to arrive at about 300:245.030.

Chirp times are typically quoted in the form period:chirp time, where the period is in seconds, and the chirp time is the zero frequency extrapolated time of the first chirp transmitted each hour.
