Of special interest to amateur radio operators.
A note from ki6ts, the HEATH Club.
ki6ts will be at the 2017 Eclipse.
KI6TS, the amateur radio station of the HEATH Electronics And Technology Ham Club, will be on the air during the 2017 Eclipse.
We'll be running a multi-operator Special Event station, in the center of the first state where the Eclipse makes US landfall.
Work the ki6ts Special Event station.
In a nod to early radio, we'll be operating right at the heart of the path of Totality, in Galena, Oregon:
