Comment: A fundamental understanding of Radio Wave Propagation is vital if radio amateurs are to run effective, efficient stations. In this excellent tutorial from Edwin C. Jones, Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee, we get a basic explanation of Radio Wave Propagation and the workings of Earth's atmosphere, which can serve as a foundation for greater understanding of the natural forces that govern our radio signals. Dr. Jones divides the presentation into easily understandable section, covering several important areas, including: Aurora, backscatter, blind zone, Es, F2, grey line, LUF, meteor scatter, MUF, TA, TEP, ducting, and tropospheric scatter. Dr. Jones also includes a brief
