Point your antennas to CM97bp (Jamboree on the Air)

In celebration of Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary, Northern California BSA is having a jamboree, and East Bay hams are putting on a jamboree on the air (JOTA) station to give scouts a chance to get on the air.  The station call sign is WZ6BSA, and it should be accessible via HF, VHF (including IRLP), and satellite (when visible from CM97bp). You can get more information here. I am going to be the HF control operator 9am-1pm PDT tomorrow.

Want to see where maps have been generated for?

Locations for which maps have been made

Red dots show locations for which maps have been made

I wrote a script to generate a map showing all the locations for which maps have been generated.  There is also a link to show a graph of the number of maps generated per day.

New WordPress plugin for solar-terrestrial data

I wrote a WordPress width plugin to display N0NBH’s fabulous banners that display solar-terrestrial data of interest to ham radio enthusiasts. These banners show lots of useful information including predictions of HF/VHF propagation.
