Dave Akers, a Licensed Professional Engineer, pioneered acquiring physical  measurements of Earthlights in the early 70s, during the outbreak of activity on the Yakama Indian Reservation. We wish to thank Dave for his participation and in an IEA 2003 expedition. He guided Strand and Adams to several interesting Washington state locations, Toppenish, Red Mountain, and Trout Lake to name a few. He arranged interviews with eye-witness Native American fire lookout observers. He also participated in the scientific data acquisition using a magnetometer he assembled himself. Dave runs a non-profit organization for the study of Earthlights in the Toppenish area. Reports can be found at http://www.vogelstudy.org.
