Tomas David Hood, NW7US, the current contributing editor for the propagation columns in CQ Magazine, Popular Communications Magazine, and CQ VHF Magazine, is launching a new podcast service, the 'NW7US Space Weather and Radio Propagation Podcast'. The debut of the podcast launches in July, 2009, just as the new solar cycle, Sunspot Cycle 24, shows signs of "waking up."
NW7US is producing the regular podcast that delves into the science of space weather and radio frequency propagation. The educational podcast also features information on current geomagnetic and solar events in space weather as they relate to the propagation of radio transmissions. Tomas will interview leading solar scientists, forecasters, and knowledgeable individuals in the amateur radio, shortwave radio, and broadcast engineering fields. Timely news updates and editorials will also be included in the podcasts.
