Mon21Aug201710:00 amSouthern IllinoisSolar Eclipse 2017 - The day the sun will disappear - August 21st, 2017"For a swath of the country from Portland, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina, it will look like someone just turned off the sun in the middle of the day. Fourteen states across the US will experience about two minutes of darkness as the eclipse crosses from coast to coast between 10:15 a.m. Pacific Time in Oregon until about 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time in South Carolina. The real question is, have you figured out where you will be on August 21?”Interesting links relating to ham radio and the eclipse

Gregg, AB9MZ will offer suggestions and ideas for the well prepared amateur radio operator. This includes making sure your home station can handle power outages and severe weather.
In addition, a go-kit (or jump-kit) is what you prepare, keep ready, and grab on the way out the door when responding to the call for emergency response duties. It may consist of a fisherman’s vest, a bag or satchel, or any kind of soft (but well made) “carry-on” luggage. It must contain all the stuff you will or may need for at least a 24 hour stay at your post.
