The 24,000 scientists who attended last December's fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) had an opportunity to be introduced to HamSCI, the Ham Radio Science Citizen Initiative ( 

The ARRL Letter reports that the organization was featured in two poster presentations, "HamSCI: The Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation," by group co-founder Nathaniel Frissell, W2NAF, a post-doctoral research associate at the New Jersey Institute of Technology; and "Characterizing the Ionospher Using a Commercial Off the Shelf Software Defined Radio System," by Virginia Tech undergrad Magda Moses, KM4EGE. The weeklong conference was held in San Francisco.
