Can I suggest that you put an announcemount in the Navy News which might gain some interested participants. I know they used to run articles (in the print version) on former ships of the line.

Update: DJ was able to listen to this in the US so non-UK residents, give it a try.  ;D

I found out about OldWeather from ArcaMax's Science & Technology ezine (arcamax.com), which cited UPI-UK as the source.

Cheers,

I've started emailing a lot of naval-related sites including Navy News, also UK public libraries, family history sites, etc. but little or no response. If others could contact them - google will always give you a list of related sites and email addresses, it might help spread knowledge of Old Weather.

I am trying to get in touch with "Costing the Earth" the BBC R4 environment programme.

Absolutely tailor-made for them. Sea, climate, climate change, weather, Navy, history, collaboration, public involvement....

I have found that obtaining email addresses of people at the BBC, newspaper correspondents, heads of museum departments etc is so difficult in the UK. It's almost as if they want to keep the great unwashed at bay. In contrast, US organisations are so open, listing all their heads and staff.
