Join us at the Club House (205 Downeymeade Dr. Nashville) on Sat Oct 14th, 2023 from 9am – 5pm Central as the ARRL is proud to partner with HamSCI to help promote participation in the Solar Eclipse QSO Party (SEQP). SEQPs are a series of global experiments — and you can be a part of them. Solar eclipses will pass across the continental United States on October 14, 2023, and April 8, 2024.
During these celestial events, you can join thousands of fellow amateurs as part of the largest crowd-sourced event for ham radio scientific exploration. The SEQP is part of the Festivals of Eclipse Ionospheric Science and is for learning more about how the ionosphere works.
All radio amateurs need to do is operate using any mode and any band for all or part of the day, then upload their logs. Participation can be from anywhere; you don’t need to be near the path of the eclipse to contribute valuable data.
The first SEQP is on Saturday, October 14, 2023, from 1200 – 2200 UTC (0700 – 1700 central time), and participants may use any band or mode (except WARC bands). Researchers will take the submitted logs and work to derive meaningful observations from the data.
The Club House WILL be open on Saturday Oct 14th from 0900-1700. Mark this on your calendars. Come out and participate in the QSO Party!
