|HamSCI Workshop 2023
The WWV/H Scientific Modulation Test continues after 16 months broadcasting at minute 8 on WWV and minute 48 on WWVH. Initial evaluation of the recordings show promise in determining time-of-flight and other characteristics. Efforts have started to place a KiwiSDR receiver on Kauai for an evaluation of WWVH broadcasts similar to those made of WWV. The WWV ARC held the Tune In: The WWV Frequency Celebration at the beginning of March to mark the 100th anniversary of WWV providing standard frequencies. NIST and HamSCI presented talks on March 2, NIST provided tours of the Boulder and WWV facilities March 3, and The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery hosted the Tune In: The WWV Frequency Celebration open house on March 4. Various aspects of amateur radio were showcased including traditional HF (with a station), ARISS, ARES, satellite, HamSCI, and of course a history of WWV.
