The first HamSCI, or Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation, meeting outside the United States was held in October in the United Kingdom.

The workshop, which brought together both hams and professional scientists from the U.S. and Europe, was held just before the Radio Society of Great Britain's annual convention. The sessions focused on collaboration between hams and scientists, using amateur radio-gathered data in scientific studies and ham radio uses of space science instrumentation.

U. S. participants included Lead HamSCI Organizer Nathaniel Frissell, W2NAF; former WorldRadio Online columnist Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LA, and MIT Haystack Observatory Atmospheric Sciences Group Leader Phil Erickson, W1PJE.
