    This is pretty cool- I wonder if it will be broadcast or is accessable outside Virginia?

    LEXINGTON, Va., Oct. 26, 2009 – VMI cadets have developed an underground transmitter and portable topside receiver that will allow trapped miners to communicate with those above ground. Another group of cadets is working to commercialize this life-saving device.

    Public radio listeners can learn more about the extremely low frequency seismic communicator and the work of Col. Jim Squire, professor of computer and electrical engineering, and Maj. Elizabeth Baker, assistant professor of economics and business, on “With Good Reason,” a public radio program that explores a variety of topics with Virginia’s leading scholars.

    The interview will air on all public radio stations in Virginia during the week of Oct. 31-Nov. 6. It is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2, on WMRA-FM and at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 4, on WVTF-FM. WMRA is broadcast on 90.7 in Harrisonburg, 89.9 in Lexington, 94.5 in Winchester, and 103.5 in Charlottesville. WVTF is broadcast on 89.1 in Roanoke and Lynchburg; 88.5 in Charlottesville; 89.3 in Charlottesville, Waynesboro and Staunton; 95.5 in Orange; 101.9 in Lexington; and in numerous localities in Southwest Virginia.
