Domestic Weather

Domestic Weather

Domestic Weather is a parallel exploration of radio transmissions as carriers of meteorological data and the affects of weather on the propagation of radio signals. In a series of interviews ham radio operators describe the positive and negative effects that atmospheric conditions have on their broadcasts. Their voices are interwoven with examples of meteorological information conveyed through radio such as weather, shipping and aviation forecasts and transmissions intercepted from Radiosondes - small weather probes that are sent into the atmosphere by balloon. Also interspersed throughout the programme are a number of ‘Domestic Weather’ experiments. Using household appliances as analogies of various weather conditions, real audio recordings of weather are micro-broadcast to small radios inside or in the vicinity of these devices with the resulting duet recorded - thereby drawing attention to the micro-climate of our own domestic environment.
