On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cause the shadow of the moon to traverse the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina in just over 90 minutes causing dramatic changes in both the ionosphere and HF propagation. The Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP) is a HamSCI-ARRL sponsored operating event to generate data to study ionospheric changes during the eclipse. Not a ham radio operator yet? Learn more about it from the American Radio Relay League.
I Just worked the K1T special station, on 20 meters, 14.265. @ 12:00 am. This event celebrates 70 years of Electronics kits by HeathKit. Great guy, great QSO, a very fitting Special Event since LARC started up its Builders group. Go try to work this station.
Operating ONLY during: 00:00 UTC July 23, 2017 – 23:59:59 August 5, 2017 Make sure you are requesting a QSL card from the correct K1T station!! https://www.qrz.com/db/K1T#QSL
