The National Speleological Society (NSS) wanted the station for their 75th anniversary convention, and there was a plan for that station, but at the last minute the plan fell through. The convention chair called me and asked if I could throw something together in the two weeks before the convention. Since I had told the Communication and Electronics section I would make sure there was a special event station, I figured I had to do something.
The Idea of a Caver Special Event Station has been discussed informally among caving hams and members if the Communication and Electronics section for some time.
The 2017 National Speleological Society Communications and Electronics Section Annual Meeting and lunch will be held on Monday, 19 June 2017 at the NSS convention in Rio Rancho, NM. Specific times and room locations will be provided when we find out from the convention organizers.
Historically, at the annual meeting we have had a session with presentations by C&E Section members and other convention attendees. We plan to continue this tradition in 2017, and if you would like to present at the meeting please see the Call For Papers.
This is a call for papers for the Communication & Electronic Section meeting at the 2017 NSS Convention in Rio Rancho, NM.
If you want to make a presentation at the 2017 NSS Convention and have it listed in the program, you need to compose an abstract no longer than 250 words explaining your paper. Please send your abstract and paper title to:
