This website has been designed to educate students and the general public about the amazing science concepts behind Radio communications. Lesson Plans are available and include topics from how a radio works to actually using our radio to track and listen to orbiting satellites. Guests can login and tune the radio to listen to signals from around the world. We hope that this site will provide a valuable educational resource for teachers of elementary & high school level students.
