Annual variations of 1000 - 3000 ppm peak-to-valley have been observedin the decay rates of 8 radionuclides over a 20 year span by six organizationson three continents, including beta decay weak interaction and alpha decaystrong interaction. In searching for a common cause, we hypothesized thatsmall variations in Planck’s constant might account for the observedsynchronized variations in strong and weak decays. If so, then h would be amaximum around January-February of each year and a minimum around July-Augustof each year based on the 20 years of radioactive decay data. To test thishypothesis, a purely electromagnetic experiment was set up to search for thesame annual variations. From Jun 14, 2011 to Jan 29, 2014 941 days, annualvariations in tunneling voltage through 5 parallel Esaki tunnel diodes wererecorded. It found annual variations of 826 ppm peak-to-valley peaking aroundJan 1. These variations lend support to the hypothesis that there is a gradientin h of about 21 ppm across the Earth’s orbit.
