Abstract

By the early 1960s the Solar Group within the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's Division of Radiophysics had established an international reputation for solar research, largely through the achievements of Paul Wild and his collaborators at the Division's Dapto field station south of Sydney. This paper describes the innovative instruments found at this field station, the ways in which they were used to unravel many of the mysteries surrounding different types of radio bursts from the Sun, and some of the reasons for the success of the Dapto team.
