• Hurricane-Battered Arecibo Telescope Will Keep Studying the Skies

Added at 2017-11-17 00:27:07

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



After years of financial uncertainty and weeks of hardship caused by Hurricane Maria, staff at the legendary Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico were relieved to find out Thursday that their telescope will remain operational. For about a decade, the National Science Foundation, which owns the observatory and supplies about two-thirds of its $12 million budget, had been mulling downsizing or even shuttering the telescope to free up funds for other projects. Instead, the NSF will continue scientific operations at the facility in collaboration with an unnamed partner organization, according to a Record of Decision signed this week. Given the high demand for fuel on the island, though, the dish is operating in lower-power mode, without the function that lets astronomers aim the telescope at different areas of the sky. But the first priority is the well-being of people in Puerto Rico, not astronomy. According to the journal Science, observatory staff volunteered their services, communicating via ham radio and handing out water in Maria's aftermath. The observatory's generators, storage space and fresh water from its well have also been shared with surrounding communities.

• Amateur Radio Operators Pitch In When Storms Hit in the Northland

Added at 2017-11-15 00:11:28

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



When severe weather moves through the region, the National Weather Service in Duluth turns to a network of amateur radio operators to gather on-the-ground weather reports. The 15 volunteers on the Arrowhead Skywarn Response Team work in shifts at the NWS Duluth office during storms to receive on-the-ground weather observations from amateur radio operators -- trained weather spotters from across a 15-county area extending from Koochiching County in Minnesota to Iron County in Wisconsin. "We get on the radio and we talk to people in the area where the storm is just starting to hit. The meteorologists say they have all kinds of information and they can learn all kinds of things by looking at radar, but they can't tell you exactly what's happening right on the ground," said Grant Forsyth, an operator on the Skywarn team.



• Sheriff: Wildfires Point to Usefulness of Old Technology

Wildfires that killed nine people in a remote Northern California county last month also crippled land lines, cell phones and internet service, the local sheriff said Thursday, saying the disaster shows old-fashioned sirens and ham radios have a place in emergencies. Failures of modern technology can cost "all connectivity to the world," Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said at a news conference. When lives are at stake, "we need to notify people immediately that this is a real disaster, we need to get out of here."



• Raspberry Pi Learns Slow Morse Code

Added at 2017-11-15 00:10:22

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



It wasn't long ago that you needed to know Morse code to be a ham radio operator. That requirement has gone in most places, but code is still useful and many hams use it, especially hams that like to hack. Now, hams are using the Raspberry Pi to receive highly readable Morse code using very low power. The software is QrssPiG and it can process audio or use a cheap SDR dongle. There are a few reasons code performs better than voice and many other modes. First, building transmitters for Morse is very simple. In addition, Morse code is highly readable, even under poor conditions. This is partly because it is extremely narrow bandwidth and partly because your brain is an amazing signal processor.
