Dixon plans to be on; and EclipseMob.org organizers would appreciate:
(a) additional well-controlled LF and VLF transmitter signals
before/during/after the eclipse
(b) any before/during/after data from stable receivers
One of the organizers (Bill Liles) mentioned that receivers committed for
longitudes -90 to -110 are sparse (see map, http://eng.umb.edu/~eclipsemob/)
and that data from receivers for these longitudes (and data from any receivers
west of longitude -125, including Hawaii), would help to support a long
contiguous measurement path. Additional VLF or LF transmitters would of course
be greatly appreciated.

Subject: LF: Eclipse Experiment
There will be an experiment during the Aug 21 solar eclipse conducted using
WWVB on 60 KHz and a U.S. Navy transmitter on 55.1 and 135.95kHz operating from
California. This is a'crowd sourced' experiment.
There's a massive experiment relating to the strength of WWVB and a transmitter
in Dixon California.
This article says Dixon may transmit at 55.1 and 135.95 kHz.
The EclipseMob receiver works with a smart phone acting as an SDR. as well as
the source of it's position and the date-time of observation.
There is a parallel study based on ham radio WSPRNet and Reverse Beacon Network.
