2017 Solar Eclipse

While attending the CSVHFS conference in Rochester late July, a bulletin board caught my eye.  As we are making preparations for this year's ARRL 10 GHz and Up Contest, next year's contest proves to have an added bonus!  In 2017 there will be a total solar eclipse the day after the contest (Aug19-20) on the 21st!

Please note in the picture below that a number of microwave groups are making plans to be active during the eclipse.  SLAMS has been included!  What an exciting opportunity!

 The St. Louis area will be along the path of totality.

Let's bring this event up and start making plans for to participate and coordinate our efforts with the other microwave groups!
