Solar Eclipse QSO Party 2023
Kent Amateur Radio Society (KARS) will participate in the upcoming Solar Eclipse QSO Party Contest and science experiment on 14 Oct 2023 1200 – 2200 UTC. Our club participation will provide data with our contact log on the Impact of Solar Eclipses on the Structure and Dynamics of Earth's Upper Atmosphere. From the NASA site "The altered ionospheric conditions during an eclipse can change how radio waves propagate through the ionosphere. This can cause signal fading, absorption, and refraction, affecting shortwave and satellite communication systems. Solar eclipses provide a unique opportunity for researchers to study the ionosphere and its response to sudden changes in solar radiation."
