2017 OPTIMUS PRIME Spinoff Promotion and Research Challenge NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center invites students in grades 3-12 to take part in the OPTIMUS PRIME Spinoff Promotion and Research Challenge, or OPSPARC. Participants are challenged to help raise awareness and understanding of NASA technologies and their many benefits to our everyday lives. The challenge provides contestants with a tool, developed by Glogster, for creating and submitting their entries. Glogster is a cloud-based platform for presentation and interactive learning. The tool allows contestants to combine different kinds of media on a virtual canvas to create multimedia posters and to access an existing library of educational content created by students and educators worldwide. Contestants will develop a Glog of their own as part of OPSPARC that will include information on spinoffs and NASA missions. The students also will create video describing their own ideas for a new NASA spinoff technology. After completing their Glogs, 20 teams of students in grades 9 through 12 will be invited to work with college student mentors to further develop their spinoff concept within a 3-D, multiuser, virtual-world setting through creation of computer-aided design, or CAD, models and application of engineering and business analyses on their spinoff concepts. The InWorld portion of the contest is being sponsored by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope project. Students who submit the winning entries in each age category will have the opportunity to visit NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for an awards ceremony and workshop to be held in their honor. The workshop will include a behind-the-scenes look at Goddard, the chance to meet some of the top minds at NASA, and the opportunity for the students to design and create their own public service announcement video with guidance from NASA video producers and actor Peter Cullen, the voice of the TRANSFORMERS character OPTIMUS PRIME. The deadline for students in grades 3-8 to register and submit Glogs is 11:59 PM EDT on March 13, 2017.

Jon Jones, N0JK (Editor of The World Above 50 MHz, the QST monthly VHF column since 2011) sent some notes on last weekend’s ARRL International CW DX Contest. (The Phone contest weekend will be on March 4-5, 2017).
“Feb 19 5:47 PM:
“To Tad, The 10 meter band was like ‘day’ and ‘night’ between Saturday and Sunday of the ARRL DX CW contest.
“I operated fixed mobile single band on 10 with a full size 1/4 wave whip both days. Saturday was nice sunny warm weather, but almost a dead band. I found PJ2T and PJ4X, both weak with QSB, and worked. I called XR2K for over an hour with luck. Did he mean NO Luck? – Ed.
That was it. Is this how 10 meters will be at solar minimum?”
(Often in the past, N0JK used a shortened CB antenna, commonly used during the CB craze in the 1970s, on the back of his car for 10 meters while parked in his driveway in Lawrence, Kansas, so a full quarter wave at 8 feet, 3 inches is quite an improvement).
“10 meters was so much better Sunday. It was a flashback to how 10 was in the 2016 ARRL DX CW when the solar flux was around 100. I set up, turned on the radio and 100 watt PY2NY was blasting in on 28.034 MHz.
“CE, CX and PY were strong for hours. Caribbean and Central American contest stations were up and down the band. Not bad for a solar flux of just 77.
“Worked PJ7AAA at 1856z who was running just a ‘K3 and Buddipole.’
XR2K in the log with one call at 1940z. Picked up the KH6LC multi-op at 1955z for Hawaii on what sounded like side-scatter. They were about 559, but hearing well. KH6LC said in their 3830 post, ‘We watched 10 meters all weekend which paid off Sunday morning when it opened for us at 1715z.’
“KH6LC made 488 North American contacts on 10.
“10 meters folded for me around 2200z. I dropped down to 15 and gave a very loud KH6LC (op Fred K6IJ) a contact and then A31MM. Fred, K6IJ made 1690 contest contacts from KH6LC on 15 meters. The solar flux was the same, 77 on both Saturday and Sunday. Why was 10 so much better on Sunday?”
(Note: Solar flux was rising at 74.4, 76.6, 78.1 and 80.1 on Friday through Monday).
“Feb 19 7:11 PM
“Addition – TI8/AA8HH observed, ‘Tough going on Saturday on 10 meters but Sunday was better.’
“Feb. 22 E51DWC and VP6EU Pitcairn worked many in North America on 10 meters.
“Feb. 23 I heard VP6EU with a good signal on 10 meter SSB with a large pileup. I could not get through so.
“Dropped down to 12 Meters, and VP6EU was on 24.895 MHz CW in the clear CQing, and in the log with one call at 2139z. Also worked TX5T Australs on 24.897 MHz. Solar flux of 83, K of 3.
“VP6EU tried 6 Meters Feb. 22 at 2005z, but I am unaware of any contacts. A G-1 geomagnetic storm may occur Feb 23/24, if the geomagnetic field gets active.
