Part 2 of the “Revolution” Article on the Sunspot Cycle in August Issue of RadCom
RadCom’s August issue contains Part 2 of my article with Dr. Scott McIntosh on the potential scientific revolution in understanding the cycle of Sunspots. This part contains more insight into the McIntosh team’s path-breaking theory of the Terminator Event and the factors that shape Cycle 25. The comparison of competing paradigms—here from the NASA/NOAA Panel’s declaration of a Cycle 25 prediction without any disclosure of methods or theory used versus the McIntosh team’s peer-reviewed papers—is likened to the one a century ago between the classic Newtonian view and the upstart Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.
As the history of science shows, it was the upstart Einstein challenging the classic paradigm of Newton who brought the newspaper headlines, “Revolution in Science.” We can watch monthly updates of this modern comparison in a special website discussed in our August article.
This part of our paper contains the forecast of the Sunspot numbers and the Solar Flux Index over Cycle 25. See the August issue of RadCom, the journal of the Radio Society of Great Britain.
I cannot navigate to the information?
Sunspot activity is always intriguing but the article leaves us at a dead end?
Thanks for your interest!
RadCom is published by the RSGB, equivalent to the ARRL here on the States. Just like QST and the ARRL, you have to be a member of RSGB to access the magazine.
This blog post was like the previous one, just alerting interested readers that Part 2 is now published and available to readers of RadCom.
I have yet to receive the July issue of RadCom. Seems like the June issue just showed up last week.
That was my experience, too. But for us across the pond here in the States, the digital RadCom is released just a day or so after the print copies land on London area mailboxes. That’s how I got my copy of the article, from the online version.
