2023 TDOA Test Runs
This page was built to disseminate information regarding 'test runs' for the upcoming HamSCI TDOA (Time Delay of Arrival) Event.
- Other hams are welcome to join in to practice sending and receiving the waveform.
- Those that can copy me can send me the .wav file for a quality check via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- The documentation needed along with the recorded waveform are station location (6 digit grid square), date and time of day of the recording, and frequency.
- Participants are encouraged to read the TDOA Operating Tips prior to the test dates.
Listen for WA5FRF, EL09nn, near San Antonio, Texas
Saturday, 23 September Initial Run - Join the roundtable QSO - Listen or transmit chirp signals, your choice
Saturday, 7 October Repeat Run - Last chance to work out any bugs!
Stations that do not have propagation to Texas are encouraged to set up their own dry runs in their own regions. Of course, they do not have to adhere to these dates but they should pick a time between 1600 and 1700 UTC to get propagation conditions representative of when the eclipse will be passing over their region.
