HamSCI Workshop and Operating in the SEQP

HamSCI events were the topics of two recent articles appearing in American Radio Relay League (ARRL) publications. The October, 2023 issue of QST magazine featured a story entitled 'HamSCI Workshop 2023:  A Radio Science Collaboration'.  The Workshop was held at the University of Scranton in mid-March, and the article gave a synopsis of the presentations, poster sessions and other activities which took place during the two day event. QST is read by thousands of ARRL Members each month.  It is the flagship journal of the ARRL. The September/October issue of On The Air carried a story on how and why an amateur radio operator would want to operate in HamSCI's Solar Eclipse QSO Parties.  OTA a bi-monthly magazine aimed at those just getting into (or back into) the hobby of amateur radio.
