Where Will YOU Be During This Month's Solar Eclipse?

The path of totality

Many of our readers (and writers) have special plans for viewing the total solar eclipse whose path will cross much of the United States on August 21. If you take part in any special eclipse-related activities — especially if they involve ham radio (such as the HAMSCI eclipse experiment and/or QSO Party) — please send us a brief report about what you did, where you did it and how it turned out. Photos are welcome, of course (original resolution digital photos sent as individual file attachments) — but please observe the usual cautions about looking at the sun during an eclipse. We'll pick out the best stories and photos and share them with all of CQ's readers. Please send your reports and photos to eclipse@cq-amateur-radio.com.
