“The 2018 HamSCI Workshop held at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) February 23-24, 2018 brought together hams and space scientists from across the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. With over 60 people in attendance, presentations included results from the 2017 Great American Eclipse, ideas for a personal space weather station, and other amateur radio-space science experiments and projects.
Friday focused on techniques and methods for collecting and analyzing large-scale amateur radio data, as well as results of the eclipse experiments. Bill Engelke, AB4EJ, of the University of Alabama presented on the HamSCI Amateur Radio Communications (HARC) database and DX Display System that unifies Reverse Beacon Network (RBN), WSPRNet, and the NASA OMNI space physics databases. Philip Gladstone, N1DQ, the founder and owner of the PSKReporter system, shared insights into the PSKReporter system architecture and the impacts of the new FT8 digital mode. Dr. Ethan Miller, K8GU, of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, showed techniques for using RBN observations to estimate ionospheric maximum usable frequency (MUF) and foF2 critical frequencies….”
