Radio Propagation Experiments Planned during Solar Eclipse Aug. 21
Thursday, August 03, 2017 | Comments

Many radio enthusiasts will participate in a series of experiments to measure the effects on radio propagation during the total solar eclipse Aug. 21.

In addition to radio amateurs, several interesting observations can be made on the AM broadcast band by listening on an ordinary AM home receiver to one of 13 clear channel 50-kilowatt stations under or near the path of the eclipse.

Experiments are also planned for LF and VLF frequencies, which only require a receiver, and there is a one-chip receiver that can be built with detailed instructions at

Licensed radio amateurs may wish to participate in contesting activities being planned by the ARRL.
