HamSCI (www.hamsci.org) is looking for amateur radio operators around the world to help collect propagation data during the December 14 eclipse across South America. Data collection requires an HF radio connected to a computer.
There will be 24-hour practice runs on November 21 and December 5. The main data recording will run from December 9-16, to ensure an abundance of control data.

Challenging times call for creative solutions, and here’s a cool one: an ARRL-sanctioned virtual amateur radio expo with renowned speakers, exhibitors, and special conference rooms built on a virtual reality platform.
Non-geek translation: You can do this from the comfort of your own home (desktop, laptop, tablet, or computer).
The club has decided they can safely conduct Field Day this year on June 27-28, even under the safety constraints of a 10-person limit. Because of managing the attendance, please let the club secretary know if you plan to attend and/or operate so a schedule can be set up.
The Dayton Hamvention for 2020 has been canceled. WWROF, in cooperation with the Hamvention organizers, wanted to create a fun way for people to celebrate the Hamvention experience over the air – the Hamvention QSO Party.
In memory of Ron, W8ILC, who became a silent key just two days after the Hamvention 2020 cancellation announcement. Ron had attended every Hamvention since the beginning.
This is a 12 hour fun event on Saturday of Hamvention May 16, 2020.
