High Frequency Radio Wave Propagation Group (HFRP)

The High Frequency Radio Wave Propagation Group (HFRP) is affliliated with the Center for Atmospheric and Space Sciences as part of Utah State University's department of physics.  HFRP  provides undergraduate physics majors opportunities to use HF radio equipment to do the following:

  • Engage in meaningful research that builds upon their academic experiences in waves and electromagnetism;
  • Make real-world application of these principles by conducting research in many of the following disciplines:
    • Space Weather
    • D-region Absorption
    • HF propagation
    • Antenna Basics
    • Transmission Line Basics
  • Gain experience in collecting, formatting, and analyzing data;
  • Present research findings.
