• IARU Addresses New Radio Spectrum Pollution Threat

Added at 2017-09-20 00:21:36

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



The International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Administrative Council (AC) held its annual in-person meeting on 15 and 16 September in Landshut, Germany, just before the IARU Region 1 Conference. It has addressed High Power Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) for electric vehicles, seen as having a significant potential for interference to radiocommunications. The AC, consisting of the three IARU international officers and two representatives from each of the three IARU regional organisations, is responsible for policy and management. A media release issued on September 17 reported that the meeting reviewed its priorities and positions for the 2019 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-19) of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The agenda for WRC-19 along with WPT includes several other items of potential concern to radio amateurs, a possible Region 1 allocation of 50-54 MHz to the Amateur Service to harmonise with allocations in the other two regions. The IARU budget, based on anticipated financial contributions from Member Societies, was also reviewed to minimise expenditure, and adopted. The theme for World Amateur Radio Day, 18 April 2018, was confirmed as "Celebrating Amateur Radio's Contribution to Society."

• New Plymouth Amateur Radio Celebrates 90 Years On Air

Added at 2017-09-18 00:09:26

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



Ninety years is a long time to ride a wave. An airwave that is. This month a group of amateur radio operators in New Plymouth is getting set to celebrate 90 years of keeping in touch with each other and the community. The New Plymouth Amateur Radio Club started in 1926 and has evolved to become a vital link in the community, especially in emergencies when it helps police, search and rescue and civil defence when required. Club secretary Daniel Vandenberg said it was just one of the many roles the club provided. "We have a group of fully trained operators who are able to help support emergency communications," Vandenberg said. "We're one of the longest running service clubs in New Zealand." There were many different aspects to the amateur radio hobby, he said. Some used it to for keeping in touch with others while some clubs have competitions as well.

• A Texas Homage to Amelia Earhart's Around-the-World Flight

Added at 2017-09-17 00:03:33

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



Exactly 80 years after Amelia Earhart attempted her round-the-world flight, the solo journey has finally been completed in a single-engine aircraft for the first time, ending in Kestrel Airpark in San Antonio. "This was an amazing journey," says Brian Lloyd, who flew 28,000 miles in Spirit, his plane, during his circumnavigation of the globe. "It required more of me than I ever imagined it could, but I also found in myself the reserves of patience and energy to keep going no matter what." Like Earhart's plane, Spirit has a high frequency radio, which Lloyd used to communicate with hundreds of people across the world. "Every place I went I was warmly greeted with open arms, even in places where we are told that the US is not liked," Lloyd says. "The key thing to remember is that the aviation and amateur radio communities are united around aviation and radio, and not really around politics or religion."
