    The Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP[1]) is just a couple of weeks away! The SEQP is a special operating event organized by the Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI[2]) to study ionospheric effects caused by the August 21 total solar eclipse.

    During the SEQP, hams are being asked to operate on the HF bands in a manner similar to a contest or QSO party. Let the HamSCI researchers know where you plan to be and what modes you plan to operate. Visit[3] the SEQP Pre-Registration page.

    Systems such as the Reverse Beacon Network (RBN[4]), PSKReporter[5], and WSPRNet[6]. Participants' logs will provide the contact and spot data that researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and at Virginia Tech will use to study eclipse-induced ionospheric effects.

    Event rules and operating procedures[7] are available on the HamSCI website.
