Abstract: Over the course of nearly three decades, a series of state of the art low frequency radio telescopes were developed in the dry lake bed of Clark Lake east of San Diego by Professor Bill Erickson and his colleagues and students. These instruments helped open the first window on the very poorly explored region of the electromagnetic spectrum below 100 MHz. Institutions involved with the construction and operation of the instruments included Convair (now General Dynamics), the University of Maryland, the University of California at San Diego, the University of Iowa, and the Goddard Space Flight Center.
