Details

Suitable for many vessels
For example, the AT-130 will match a 7 m (23 feet) long wire antenna across the marine band in the 1.6 - 27.5 MHz range.

Automatic tuning
No manual tuning is needed. Just push the [TUNE] switch on an Icom HF marine transceiver; the AT-130 adjusts the antenna and the transceiver to the minimum SWR in any frequency on an HF marine band. The AT-130 allows you to transmit with strong RF output power, and is perfect for maritime mobile operations.

Weather resistant
This allows it to be conveniently installed near the antenna element base.

For Icom HF marine transceivers
Icom's sophisticated AT-130 easily matches Icom HF marine transceivers. The AT-130 easily interconnects with an Icom HF marine transceiver. AT-130 installation is simple. No adjustments are necessary. Just connect the control cable and antenna wire and go!

Quick tune-up
Improved tuning performance...the tune-up time is less than 3 seconds in any frequency on an HF marine band. In addition, the AT-130 has 8 convenient memories to store tuning information. Retuning for a memorized frequency takes about 1.5 seconds. This allows you quick trouble-free frequency changes.

White River Monitoring Backs Work to Boost River’s Civic Profile

The White River looms large in Indianapolis, with some stretches spanning more than 500 feet wide where it runs through downtown. But the river has historically received more sewage than respect. But, like many urban rivers, the White River is in the midst of a slow recovery from decades of neglect and abuse. Between a massive $2 billion sewer improvement project to new funding for programs to educate people about the river and get them on the water, the recovery could hasten as momentum builds behind the idea that a healthy, accessible White River would enrich the city and its citizens. Behind that work, a growing number of water quality monitoring programs will help track improvements on the river and catch any emerging pollution concerns.

Baking in the Sun: How Groundwater Recharge is Likely to Change as the Climate Does

Much of the American west depends upon groundwater for its survival. Originally the region was sustainably settled and farmed by Native American tribes. Eventually, new settlers without those abilities came west and resettled in a sort of patchwork; newcomers chose to stay near springs and other places where exploitable groundwater was close to the surface. In time, technologies developed enough for deeper wells to be drilled and groundwater to be pumped. This made the high level of development that is now present in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix possible. However, it proceeded without any detailed understanding of the groundwater recharge process in the area.

NCAR Model Gives U. of Texas Researchers Advanced Tool for Predicting La Niña Drought Impact

[caption id="attachment_27967" align="alignright" width="320"] Jason-3 sea level residuals on 12/07/2017. (Courtesy: NASA/JPL-Caltech.)[/caption] El Niño and La Niña are recurrent warming and cooling patterns in the tropical Pacific Ocean that affect weather patterns around the world. While El Niño tends to spring up due to a random wind change in the tropical Pacific, La Niña often follows on El Niño’s heels, cooling the tropical Pacific Ocean, causing drought conditions across the southern tier of the US. How long drought will persist due to La Niña is an important question for every community that suffers from extremely dry conditions.
