I think this will be of interest to this list - one good way
of getting support for building your own radio science equipment is to
team up with local schools, and that goes double for building an Argus

--- RADIO SCIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM
At the next URSI/USNC meeting (1999 January 4-7, Boulder CO) Commision J, the Radio Astronomy Commission, is sponsoring a session on 'Radio Science in the Classroom'. This session will occur on Tuesday, 5 Jan, in the afternoon. The current program includes the following ten talks; titles are tentative, but speakers have committed.
If, at this late hour, you suddenly decide you can't resist presenting a paper, please let me know. We might (that's MIGHT) be able to accomodate.
In any case, we look forward to your attendance and participation! ------------------------
