    Phil Erickson, W1PJE, sits on a million watt UHF transmitter at the MIT Haystack Observatory, where he studies the atmosphere and radio propagation. Phil is a long time radio guy but a newcomer to amateur radio. As you will hear in this QSO Today, the tools, modes, and technology of amateur radio are complimenting the research achievements of scientists like Phil, W1PJE.

    Thanks for posting this one! And as far as the coolest antenna contest goes...he wins. (Although at first it looks like the coolest roller coaster in the world!) -dt

    Na verdade não (just a couple words - but enough to respond in kind to PY6FA)

    I've worked with the 43 meter / 140' at Green Bank (2nd largest on site and largest equatorial mount telescope in the world; see below - left hand building is feed access gantry) but not the GBT you've pictured ... yet. That 110 meter offset feed antenna is an amazing feat of engineering, as is the older 43 meter one which rides on a single spherical bearing - and which can point at the ground since it is a right ascension/declination primary axis mount! NRAO certainly has world class antennas.

    Oh wow...the 140 foot....takes me back.... I babied that guy for my VLBI thesis observations in 1980...

    FYI for those who are interested, NRAO Greenbank is now the 'Green Bank Observatory' (GBO).
