I am commenting on an interesting statement by non-Nobel-prize-winning Kirt Blattenberger in which he proposed a unit of measurement of uranushertz. Simply stated, Mr. Blattenberger postulates that some measurements can be expressed as a ratio to the amount of time that it takes Uranus to revolve once around the sun.

Just as we use AU (astronomical unit) to simplify description of great distances, the Uranushertz ( UHz ) would be useful when stating frequencies that are magnitudes lower than 1 Hz.

For example, the rate at which the earth rotates about its axis (once per day) may be expressed as 0.00001157407 Hz, a very inconvenient number. Stated in UHz, however, earth rotates about its axis at 30,859 uranushertz, and the earth revolves around the sun at 83.8 uranushertz (83.8 UHz).

If we state the 11 year solar cycle is 7.686 UHz it becomes clear that Uranus experiences nearly 8 solar sunspot cycles per year (on Uranus), nearly 2 entire solar cycles per season. This may explain why we do not see reports of amateur radio operation from Uranus.

The constitution of the U.S. of A. provides that only congress can tax us and spend our money and congressional elections are once every four years. It seems that each four years that congress decides to tax working people hoping to create more working people. Using the unit of UH, we could then say that Congress stimulates us at a rate of 21.136 uranushertz.

 Ha! That is hilarious! Your application of the Uranushertz unit to paying taxes is particularly apt! _________________- Kirt Blattenberger RF Cafe Progenitor & Webmaster
