The Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palmas in Spain’s Canary Islands erupted for the first time in 50 years on Sunday, September 19, following an increase in seismic activity over the previous 7 days.
(Interesting article wonder if radio propagation could affected by this also!)
Go outside and enjoy the night sky because it might be about to change.
That’s according to Dr. Samantha Lawler with the Physics Department at the University of Regina (Saskatchewan, Canada).

Next event is a go, 80m ARDF foxhunt, Sept 11, 2021, 10am at Wattershed park in North Delta:
Meeting location: Pinewood Elementary, 11777 Pinewood Dr., Delta, BC
This event is called ARDF Fox-oring which is having 10 low powered 80m TX (transmitters) placed out in the park for you to find as many as you can. They all will be on the same frequency but since they are all low power that should not be a problem.
We will provide you with a map with little circles on those with numbers. Those will represent a rough location of the TX. Idea is if you get to that circle you will be able to hear and find the TX-fox.
This is the first time we are doing this type of event and based on interest this should be lots of fun. Let me know if you have any questions.
