- Join one (or more!) of several ongoing projects, including investigations of data collected by the Reverse Beacon Network, WSPRNet, and PSKReporter.
- Use your own Ham radio to send signals that projects will pick up, yielding information about the Earth’s ionosphere.
- Advanced users launch their own projects and recruit other HamSCI volunteers to collaborate.
- Time: hours
- Equipment: A smartphone or computer with internet connection. Having access to a Ham radio opens up many more ways to participate.
- License (optional): While transmitting radio signals is not required to participate in HamSCI, if you choose to do so you must hold a valid amateur radio operator license.
- Knowledge: Online materials and virtual meetings welcome people at all levels of Ham radio experience.
Consider attending the annual HamSCI Workshop - in person or online. You will hear scientists and amateur radio operators presenting on their research and experience in our community. It’s a great way to meet people and experience the excitement of radio science research. Past Workshop proceedings are available on the HamSCI website.
