    Early studies of the auroral zone ionosphere were undertaken at Tromso in Northern Norway by Sir Edward Appleton during the Second Polar Year (1932-33). The sounding radars employed were based on the principle of radiowave reflection by the ionospheric layers. During the last 30 years a new generation of radars has been developed, based on the principle of `coherent' and `incoherent' scatter by ir... View full abstract»

    The commercial advent of digital broadcast radio in the UK is upon us. The concepts and technology of digital audio broadcasting, DAB, originated from the European Eureka 147 project, which began in 1988 and which has created international standards now adopted by ETSI and the ITU. In the UK today the BBC provides DAB coverage to some 60% of the population. A DAB licence for independent radio broa... View full abstract»
