I am one of your first subscribers and, like all others, look forward eagerly to each new issue. In fact I read many of the articles several times.

I subscribe to too many magazines as it is but COSMIC SEARCH is unusual. It is GOOD!!

COSMIC SEARCH is doing a fine job of giving an overview of the work being done to explore the possibilities of communicating with possible civilizations beyond the earth. Basic to such communication is the use of the radio telescope.

I am presently building a two-dish interferometer for 610 megahertz and would be interested in exchanging technical information with other amateurs who are working on radio telescopes. I think it would be a good idea for COSMIC SEARCH to include an occasional nuts and bolts article for encouragement to amateurs in the field of radio astronomy.

SETI is one of the grandest scientific endeavors and COSMIC SEARCH gives it the serious treatment it deserves.

Good luck with COSMIC SEARCH. It is a very worthy effort. The Winter 1980 issue is probably the best since the magazine started.

COSMIC SEARCH has excellent material and is very readable. I would enjoy a little more futurist viewpoint.

We hope radio astronomy buffs will write to COSMIC SEARCH about their work as suggested by Jerry Carmean.

Construction manuals for making your own amateur radio telescope, completely operational radio telescopes and accessories are carried by Bob's Electronics, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In addition this organization sells a cassette tape with dramatic sounds of pulsars and other radio sources.


We hope your magazine grows and grows. It deserves much success.

Publishing COSMIC SEARCH must involve a lot of effort but please continue. It is very worth while.

The Fall 1979 issue was very thought provoking.
