CQ Mars … (Now Wait 20 Minutes)
A simulated Mars mission to be conducted on the slopes of Mauna Loa in Hawaii in late March and early April will involve ham radio. According to the ARRL, the HI-SEAS project will use amateur radio for communication with the outside world … including the same 20-minute delay one would have for real communications with Mars! For more information, including details on special event station K6B, see <http://hi-seas.org/>.
