June 2021 Eclipse Festival Seeks Ham Participants

HamSCI is looking for ham radio operators to make recordings of time-standard stations during the June 2021 annular solar eclipse across the Arctic Circle as part of a citizen science experiment. Researchers will use the crowd-sourced data to investigate the superimposed effects of auroral particle precipitation and the eclipse on HF Doppler shift.

RRRA Field Day Site Infrastructure Manager Needed

RRRA needs an Infrastructure Manager—or Management Team—for the club’s 2021 Field Day Site June 26–27 at the Cass County Highway Department in West Fargo.

The Field Site Infrastructure Manager is responsible for:

  • Signing for and securing the keys to the Field Day site gates and bathrooms
  • Getting the 6000 pound RRRA communications trailer towed to to the Field Day site and assisting with set-up. The trailer has a tongue weight of 600 pounds and requires an appropriately equipped tow vehicle

This year’s Site Infrastructure Manager(s) should contact as soon as possible so that he can arrange for access to the keys and so that he has time to prepare the trailer for deployment.

RRRA will not be able to operate a 2021 Field Day Site if no one is willing to undertake these responsibilities.
