Amateur Radio, HamSci and the Total Solar Eclipse: 21 August 2017

A total solar eclipse will cause the shadow of the moon to cross the United States on a path from Oregon to South Carolina between 15:46 UTC and 20:02 UTC. Southern Ontario will perhaps experience a 50 to 60% partial eclipse.

HamSCI, an organization “that encourages amateur radio operators to help make legitimate scientific observations”, will have many events available for hams to participate in on this date. The main event asks ”amateur radio operators to participate in a large-scale experiment which will characterize the ionospheric response to the total solar eclipse and target open science questions.”

Check out the details at: HamSCI's Eclipse Page or participation details at HamSCI's QSO Party Page. Also check out the ionosphere predictions at: NASA's Eclipse Ionosphere Page
