Also in GB2RS this week…

VLF enthusiasts are planning some experiments during the solar eclipse on March 20. A number of VLF observers will be paying particular attention to received signal strengths during this period and comparing results afterwards, with the aim of compiling reports. Of particular interest will be the NRK signal on 37.5kHz from Grindavik, Iceland. They are also interested in any results from other VLF (and LF) stations. Measurements should be prepared in a .CSV format and with accurate time stamps. The exact arrangements are still to be agreed but will probably involve measurements for the same period the day before and the day after the eclipse. For more information, or if you would like to participate in this study, please contact Paul Hyde, G4CSD via
