NASA Science News for August 4, 1999:

Audio Eclipse May Fill the Sky - As the
eclipse turns day into night over
Europe on August 11, radio transmissions
from near the path of totality may
spread across the globe, due to
ionospheric changes caused by the Moon's
shadow. As a result, ham radio operators
around the world can track the August
11, 1999 total solar eclipse by
monitoring changes in atmospheric radio
propagation. Science@NASA invites ham
radio enthusiasts to submit their data
help better understand the nature of
ionospheric disturbances.  Full story:
