    The third annual HamSCI Workshop 2020 for amateur radio operators and professional scientists will be held Friday and Saturday, March 20-21, at The University of Scranton. The theme of the workshop is “The Auroral Connection,” and will include a keynote address by Tim Duffy, K3LR, chief operating officer and general manager at DX Engineering, an active amateur radio operator and well-known contester.

    The workshop will also include poster presentations and demonstrations of relevant instrumentation and software and will also serve as a team meeting for the HamSCI Personal Space Weather Station project, which is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project awarded to University of Scranton physics and electrical engineering professor Nathaniel Frissell, Ph.D.

    Speakers at the workshop include Elizabeth MacDonald, Ph.D., the NASA researcher that founded and leads the Aurorasaurus project; James LaBelle, Ph.D., professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth University and auroral radio physicist; and David Hallidy, amateur radio call sign K2DH, a retired microwave engineer who is also a well-known amateur radio operator for his work in auroral mode propagation.
