Contributing to Science

Contributing to Science - RF CafeLarry Wolfgang has a good article in the May 2013 edition of QST titled "Contributing to Science." In it he recalls a few examples of how amateurs have helped professional scientists and engineers advance the state of the art in wireless communications. For instance Pat Dyer, WA5IYX, conducted an 11-year study of mid-latitude sporadic E, and Dave Olean, K1WHS, built a magnetometer to predict aurora to aid in 144 MHz DX. Hams also discovered trans-equatorial propagation. Mr. Wolfgang suggests that pursuing a meaningful scientific investigation of your own or maybe by your club would be a worthwhile and satisfying endeavor. BTW, while writing this I happened upon a resource for current QST articles on EBSCO Host website, which is significant because non-members of ARRL cannot access their online editions.
