• Auf die Dauer hilft nur Power

Added at 2021-05-07 08:44:00

in Demenzradio, Language: DE



 QRP ist gut und recht, aber wenn man eine Verbindung nicht dem Zufall überlassen will, hilft nur Power. Das wissen wir auch in der Anstalt.Gibt es nichts schöneres, als die Gegenstation mit einem starken Signal zu beeindrucken? HF Posing at its's best. Ja, ist ein Bombensignal im heutigen Störnebel nicht gar eine Notwendigkeit? Im Gebrodel von PLC, VDSL, Schaltnetzteilen und Sparlampen gibt es kaum ein S-Meter, das nicht konstant im unteren Drittel rumhängt. Bei vielen OM steht das S-Meter im 80 und 160 Meter Band schon bei S9. Darunter ist dann verständlicherweise nichts zu hören. Wenn 59 nicht Standard wäre, müsste 39 oder 49 als Rapport gegeben werden.  Da hilft nur Power. Zwar haben die Behörden eine Grenze gesetzt. Hier in HB9 1kW. Und die braven Schweizer halten sich auch daran. In anderen Ländern sieht man das nicht so eng.So gesehen würde das oben abgebildete Baofeng Handsprechgerät durchaus die Regeln einhalten. Vielleicht sollte ich das Teil zu Studienzwecken mal bestellen. Sofern es nicht schon auf der Verbotsliste des BAKOM steht. Dann müsste ich leider darauf verzichten. Hierzulande gibt es drei Dinge die als besonders schlimme Vergehen angesehen werden: Demonstrieren vor einer Bank, schnelles Autofahren und der Besitz eines Baofeng ohne CE-Zeichen. Da ist ein bisschen Bescheissen bei den Steuern weniger schlimm. Andere Länder andere Sitten.Ich frage mich jedoch, wie das mit der Strahlenbelastung ist. Aber dazu gibt es ja Normen. Während man sich beim 50Hz Stromnetz in Europa ziemlich einig ist und 5kV/m bzw. 100uT als Grenzwerte bestimmt hat, schaut es bei der Hochfrequenz weniger einheitlich aus.Doch Grenzwerte aus warmen Beamtenstuben sind das eine, die Praxis ist eine andere. Wir kochen unser Hirn täglich mit dem Smartphone am Ohr und die Funker ihre Augäpfel mit der Gummiwurst-Antenne nur einige Zentimeter vor dem Gesicht. Bei 400 Watt aus dem Baofeng 10 wäre es interessant zu sehen, wie lange es dauert, bis einem das Gehirn überkocht. Aber vielleicht wird es auch nur "al dente", wer weiss das schon.

• Und dann hat es Zoom gemacht

 Die meisten Vereine können ihre Versammlungen wegen der Pandemie nicht mehr durchführen. Gemütliche Treffen in einem Restaurant, Jahresversammlungen und interessante Vorträge sind nicht mehr möglich. Sie werden von Funkamateuren schmerzlich vermisst. Hier in der Anstalt sind Treffen von 42 Personen verboten. Das könnte zu beunruhigenden Antworten führen, heisst es. So finden nur noch konspirative Treffen im Keller des Hausmeisters statt. Dort wo die Teebeutel zwecks Recycling getrocknet werden. Aber Dank dem Internet gibt es auch für dieses Problem eine Lösung. Findige Funkamateure wissen es schon längst. Sie haben es nämlich den Profis abgeguckt, genauso wie sie Demenzradio (DMR) den Profis abgeguckt haben. Diesmal sind sie bei den Home-Officern fündig geworden. Die machen nämlich einfach Zoom.Kürzlich war ich auch dabei und sass in Unterhosen vor der Kamera. Keiner hats gemerkt und ich habe einen wunderbaren Vortrag von Charly DK3ZL genossen. Über die Reise der Polarstern, die Neumayer Station 3 und Oscar 100.Da hat man so manch interessantes Detail erfahren und konnte sich im Anschluss an den Vortrag austauschen. Ohne 600km weit fahren zu müssen und mit einer persönlichen Speise- und Getränkekarte und In-house Service. Welch wunderbares Tool, dieses Zoom, und von jedem Funker zu beherrschen, der an einem Transceiver  drehen kann. Man braucht nicht einmal morsen zu können. Probiert es doch mal in eurem Verein aus. Ihr müsst nicht auf das Ende der Pandemie warten.Bild: Glimmer.
