If you plan on going to a special place between Oregon to South Carolina
along the line of Solar Eclipse TOTALITY, better make your reservations
now. (21 Aug 2017).

I just tried a few cabins and resorts in west kentucky and they were all
booked.  So I gave up and called up my sister in North Georgia and said
"Family reunion at your place next August 21, 2017!

Not sure what AMSAT interest there is, but any satelliite with a camera on
it should try to get ready to take a shot of the eclipse on the ground.

A once in a lifetime opportunity.

On APRS we are probably going to encourage people to post ECLIPSE objects
when they are at totality so everyone can see it move across the country in
real time on their APRS radios.

DX'ers will probably be out in force too..
