The Solar Eclipse Is One Month Away! Learn How You Can Participate in Two HamSCI Roundtable Events

Post by Efchak »

The last total solar eclipse across North America for twenty years will occur on Monday, April 8th. Hams across North America are asked to participate in learning more about how the ionosphere functions by getting on the air to help scientists in a series of ionospheric experiments.

Connect with HamSCI members and curious hams on Wednesday, March 27 at 8PM (Eastern) / 5PM (Pacific)*, or that same day at 10PM (Eastern) / 7PM (Pacific)* for a Zoom presentation on HamSCI's Festivals of Eclipse Ionospheric Science (FoEIS). The presenters will take your questions during the 30-minute presentations.

The link to these presentations is here: https://scranton.zoom.us/j/286316405?pw ... 09#success

The program will start by covering HamSCI's basis and purpose, quickly moving into why we are conducting experiments, how hams and SWLS can participate, and what we hope to learn from the event. Along the way, we will discuss why the science behind the events is important to users of the high frequency radio spectrum - including amateur radio operators!
Learn about the HamSCI’s eclipse-focused operating events:
• Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP)
• Gladstone Signal Spotting Challenge (GSSC)
• Medium Wave Recording Event
• Time Delay of Arrival (TDOA) Event
• Grape 1 Doppler Receiver project
• ...and more!

There is no need to pre-register, create an account or log into any site. Simply follow this link at the date and times above to be taken to a Zoom meeting room, hosted by HamSCI:

Join us on March 27th!! Get on the air April 8th!!

HamSCI serves as a means for fostering collaboration between professional researchers and amateur radio operators. It assists in developing and maintaining standards and agreements between all people and organizations involved. Its goals are to advance scientific research and understanding through amateur radio activities and encourage the development of new technologies to support this research.

HamSCI Presents the Solar Eclipse QSO Party – April 8, 2024

Join with thousands of your fellow amateurs as part of the largest crowd-sourced event for ham radio scientific exploration ever! The SEQP is part of The Festivals of Eclipse Ionospheric Science and is for learning more about how the ionosphere works. Use any mode, any band for all or part of the day! Participation can be from everywhere – you need not be near the path of the eclipse to contribute valuable data by participating.

• Are you a contester? For details on the SEQP contest and rules go to www.hamsci.org/contest-info. Don’t forget to send in your log!
• For the Gladstone Signal Spotting Challenge using CW, WSPR and FST4W modes go to www.hamsci.org/contest-info.
• If you’re an SWL or AM DX’er, there is The Medium Wave Recording Event for you as well! Go to www.hamsci.org/mw-recordings/.

Or just get on the air and help provide the data to better understand the ionosphere.

Save the date – Monday, 8 April 2024
Get on the air! 1400-2400 UTC

Do it for science!! Any band/any mode (except the WARC bands).

Submitting Logs to the HamSCI Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP)

Post by Efchak »

A thanks in advance for participating in the SEQP. We hope that you will not only get on the air on April 8th but will also submit a log to provide more data for future analysis.

N1MM is the preferred logging program. Look for the “Solar Eclipse QSO Party” in the contests section and off you go.

If you are using N3FJP, go the VHF contest section and look for the “Solar Eclipse QSO Party” and it will be good to go. Update your browser if you don’t see it when you first open the program as it is a recent addition to the listings.

You can also submit a Cabrillo or ADIF file of your activity if you’re not using any of the above logging programs.

For any other questions, drop us an email at www.hamsci.org.

Thanks!!

For housekeeping and to prevent fractured dialogues, I have merged several topics on the subject, and have moved this to the Announcement Forum, where it will get the most exposure.
