via the ARRL: HamSCI Presents Initial Eclipse Results at ARRL-TAPR Digital Communications Conference

At the 36th annual ARRL and TAPR Digital Communications Conference (DCC), held September 15–17 this year in St. Louis, HamSCI members presented preliminary evidence that the August 21 solar eclipse had a significant effect on HF propagation. The DCC is geared toward technically minded Amateur Radio operators who specialize in building and designing hardware and […]

More Professional and Citizen Research Suggests Eclipse Briefly Affected HF Propagation

Both professional and citizen scientists conducted formal and informal investigations into the effect of the August 21 solar eclipse on HF radio propagation. Nathaniel Frissell, W2NAF, of HamSCI, has said it will take some time to get a more scientific analysis of data compiled during the Solar Eclipse QSO Party. Frissell and others are investigating […]

Solar Eclipse QSO Party a Hit, Science Conclusions Await Additional Analysis

The 2017 Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP) is history, and, while logs are still coming in, the preliminary participation numbers look good, according to Nathaniel Frissell, W2NAF, of HamSCI. “Although the final numbers are not yet in, preliminary reports show that over 670,000 spots were detected by the Reverse Beacon Network (RBN), and over 542,000 […]

Solar Eclipse QSO Party Signup So Far Has Attracted More Than 250 Eclipse Enthusiasts

The Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP) now is just a week away — Monday, August 21 — and more than 250 radio amateurs in the US and elsewhere already have signed up to take part. The SEQP is a special operating event organized by the Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI), led by Nathaniel Frissell, […]

Spacecraft Probe to Listen for ARRL Field Day Signals

The Enhanced Polar Outflow Probe (e-POP) onboard the Canadian CAScade Smallsat and Ionospheric Polar Explorer (CASSIOPE) satellite will again support Amateur Radio citizen science by listening for signals during ARRL Field Day, June 24-25. The HamSCI citizen science initiative says that, from a radio science perspective, Field Day is an ideal time for e-POP to […]

HamSCI Members Showcase Amateur Radio-Related Research at AGU Fall Meeting

Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI) scientists were among those taking part in the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco earlier this month. The December 11-17 gathering, which attracted some 24,000 geoscientists, offered an opportunity for HamSCI scientists to present Amateur Radio-based research, discuss possibilities for upcoming experiments, and network […]
