Speaker: Bill Sproul

Topic: The Sun – Its Effect on Radio Communications

Summary:
Civilization was radically transformed by radio technology in the 20th century, and the Sun is responsible in many ways for the behavior of radio waves. My presentation will discuss the effects of the Sun on radio propagation, beginning with a brief discussion on the Sun, followed by a more detailed discussion on solar phenomena and their effects on radio.
