In an article by Ward Silver, N0AX, the American Radio Relay League has featured HamSCI in the August 2016 (Pages 68-71) issue of QST. Ward's article discusses some history of amateur radio involvement in science, the vision of HamSCI, and a description of ham radio activities for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. Download a free PDF of the full article here.
In addition, the August 2016 QST inlcudes a full-page profile of HamSCI member Magda Moses, KM4EGE (Page 13). Congratulations, Magda!

The first preview of the HamSCI website is now online at http://www.hamsci.org. It is built using Drupal 7.41 and the Bootstrap base theme. It is hosted by the Hume Center at Virginia Tech.
The next step is to focus on the content we would like to have for when the website goes live to the general public.
