Ionospheric Memory? The Mystery of the Long-Delayed Radio Echoes 

July 11, 2016

During the late 1920s, a pair of Scandinavian researchers was engaged in a unique experiment. Carl Størmer, a geophysicist and his associate Balthasar van der Pol, a physicist with the Philips Research Labs, were sending messages to one another using short wave radio, with hopes of understanding an anomaly: certain signals the men were sending appeared to have been followed by odd “echoes”, some of which arrived as much as 15 seconds later than the primary messages the researchers had sent. Størmer and van der Pol knew that these were long delays — too long, really, to be easily explained as merely being atmospheric or climatic anomalies. So what was their cause? An earlier incident had actually been what prompted Størmer to seek answers to this mystery. Earlier in 1927, an amateur radio operator named Jørgen Hals had been had been noticing odd echoes from radio transmissions near his home in Oslo, Norway. Unable to determine the unusually long “echos” that followed certain
