Say ‘HI’ to Juno! – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory requests Radio Amateurs to help Signal to Space Probe

Are you up to a bit of a technical challenge to purposely signal to one of NASA’s space probes?

Say HI to JUNO

NASA’s Juno spacecraft will fly past Earth on October 9, 2013 to receive a gravity assist from our planet, putting it on course for Jupiter. To celebrate this event, the Juno mission is inviting amateur radio operators around the world to say “HI” to Juno in a coordinated Morse Code message. Juno’s radio & plasma wave experiment, called Waves, should be able to detect the message if enough people participate. So please join in, and help spread the word to fellow amateur radio enthusiasts!
