Not surprising, more sports fitness trainers are beginning to include feedback modalities as part
of their regimen.
A number of years ago (summer of 2011) a series of videos were made during the Cw NAQP contest. The idea was to track my left pre-frontal E-E-G while I ran various aspects of this contest; first S&P'ing then running frequencies. In total, 5 video segments were produced.
- Part 2 - Running a frequency
- Part 3 - Running a frequency
- Part 4 - Running a frequency
- Part 5 - Running a frequency
of the implications of these videos, you need to be able to copy Morse code. If plans hold up I am looking to repeat this experiment (now 8 years later) in the upcoming NAQP Ssb contest.
I am hoping that the many things I discovered/learned from this E-E-G exercise will be
similarly confirmed by repeating this exercise via Ssb or RTTY.
to E-e-g - namely GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) - is another bio-indicator that, properly monitored, can assist us in improving operating performance.
At the heart of every GSR device is a circuit familiar to most radio amateurs - namely, a Wheatstone bridge.
GSR measurement provides an important yet indirect look at our base-level emotional state.
During periods of intense operating, our negative-emotion state can rapidly rise. Similar to the relaxation often experienced from meditation, we can learn to control our GSR-levels and remain calm, while at the same time remaining focused on making QSOs.
raw e-e-g data into useful evaluations for each hemisphere.
FEEDBACK: It's all about Feedback.
Based on these recommendations, a custom-tailored program of neurofeedback therapy can be utilized to "balance" brainwave activity, which for the radio amateur translates into more efficient/effective operating ability; exactly what
top-notch radiosport players are looking to do.
Combining neurofeedback with meditation, proper diet, mild-exercise and properly developed sleep cycles offers up the possibility for taking the radiosport experience to the "next level".
"Exercise" equipment doesn't necessarily have to be complicated and/or expensive; likewise with neurofeedback - a single-sensor NFB headset
can be the start of a new beginning in radio sport.
What do YOU do to maximize YOUR radiosport performance?
I would like to hear about it.
