Registration Now Open for HamSCI Workshop Aimed during Hams and Space Science/Weather Researchers


Registration now is open for a 2-day HamSCI — a Amateur Radio citizen scholarship beginning — workshop Feb 23-24 during New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark. The 2018 HamSCI Workshop will be hold in the NJIT Campus Center Ballroom. Complimentary parking is accessible during the NJIT Parking Deck, 154 Summit Street, Newark.

“The 2018 HamSCI seminar will concentration on formula of a 2017 Great American Eclipse and a growth of a Personal Space Weather station,” pronounced Nathaniel Frissell, W2NAF, Assistant Research Professor during NJIT’s Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research. “We are generally looking for speakers with presentations display investigate of 2017 Great American Eclipse ionospheric observations, ideas and proposals for a pattern and doing of a personal space continue station. We will also accept other presentations associated to Amateur Radio and science.”

Frissell expects that presentations will run between 20 and 30 minutes. Contact Frissell if we would like to benefaction and yield an epitome by Feb 15. Presentations should be on any subject about how a ionosphere and/or radio propagation was influenced by a eclipse.

Frissell pronounced all hams and scientists meddlesome in ham radio scholarship are welcome. “This aim of this seminar is to encourage collaborations between a ham radio and a space scholarship and space continue investigate communities by presentations, discussions, and demonstrations. This year’s assembly will concentration on solar obscure analysis, ham radio information sources and databases, and a growth of a ‘personal space continue station.’”

The report calls for verbal presentations on “Ham Radio Data Sources, Databases Analysis” and “Solar Eclipse Effects on a Ionosphere, including formula from a Solar Eclipse QSO Party.” Phil Erickson, W1PJE, of MIT’s Haystack Observatory is scheduled to be a Friday dusk party speaker. Tutorials on Saturday will embody “Ham Radio for Space Scientists,” “Space Science for Ham Radio Operators,” with Frank Donovan, W3LPL, and “Space Science for Ham Radio Operators.”

Friday registration is $100, that includes breakfast, lunch, and party ticket. Saturday registration is $25, that includes breakfast and lunch. Friday party tickets are $50.

“The ham radio information sources and databases event addresses an ongoing HamSCI topic,” Frissell told ARRL. “We will have presentations and discussions about a stream methods that we use to collect information in ham radio, how it is stored, and how we can make it some-more scientifically useful, and stream investigate creation use of these datasets.” Frissell pronounced a outrageous volume of information already is accessible from such sources
