• Heads Up: An Invasion is Coming

Added at 2017-04-26 00:01:36

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



It seems to me that folks hereabouts should be forewarned that in a few weeks we will be subjected to what might be called an "invasion." Oh, it won't be by zombies, aliens from outer space, or locusts -- nope, it's going to be by very friendly "Hams", known more formally as "amateur radio operators." Yep, thousands of Hams are expected to converge on our county fairgrounds for a three day event known as the "Hamvention." Okay, what's going on? Well, for a number of years the Dayton amateur radio organization (known as DARA) has sponsored the largest assemblage of amateur radio operators in the world. This gathering, which became known as "Hamvention," was held at the Hara Arena, but that venue has now closed so Hamvention needed a new home. After investigating a number of possibilities and with the cooperation and concurrence of local officials, DARA selected our fairgrounds as the new site for Hamvention. (Note: our county has amateur radio organizations in Bellbrook, Fairborn, and Xenia with a total membership of several hundred Hams, many of whom are also members of DARA. All three local groups work with DARA in making Hamvention a success.)

The Valley of the Moon Amateur Radio Club, or VOMARC, is holding its annual Amateur Radio Relay League Hamfest from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 29, at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building, 126 First St. W., in Sonoma. Admission is free for the Hamfest. The event will include a walk-in Volunteer Examiner license exam session for anyone interested in attaining their amateur radio license with registration starting at 9 a.m. and testing for all license elements immediately following. There will be a radio and electronics swap meet with both indoor and outdoor spaces available and mounds of electronics goodies for sale. Sellers can start setting up at 7 a.m. with spaces renting for $10. Space will be made available at no charge for amateur radio organizations, local nonprofits or other public service agencies for informational tables and displays. The club will serve a breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m., including eggs, sausage, all-you-can-eat pancakes, juice and coffee or tea for $8. Ongoing radio demonstrations will include an operating low power QRP radio station, emergency communications vehicles from local public safety agencies, a display of homebuilt equipment, the club swap table and a beginner's D.F., or direction finding, transmitter hunt. VOMARC member Mike Miller, WB6TMH, is organizing the hidden transmitter hunt. Participants use a radio receiver and directional antenna to track the signal to a transmitter hidden around the Veterans building.



• Cassini, Voyager Missions Give New Picture of Sun's Interaction with Galaxy

Added at 2017-04-25 00:01:44

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



New data from NASA's Cassini mission, combined with measurements from the two Voyager spacecraft and NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer, or IBEX, suggests that our sun and planets are surrounded by a giant, rounded system of magnetic field from the sun -- calling into question the alternate view of the solar magnetic fields trailing behind the sun in the shape of a long comet tail. The sun releases a constant outflow of magnetic solar material -- called the solar wind -- that fills the inner solar system, reaching far past the orbit of Neptune. This solar wind creates a bubble, some 23 billion miles across, called the heliosphere. Our entire solar system, including the heliosphere, moves through interstellar space. The prevalent picture of the heliosphere was one of comet-shaped structure, with a rounded head and an extended tail. But new data covering an entire 11-year solar activity cycle show that may not be the case: the heliosphere may be rounded on both ends, making its shape almost spherical. A paper on these results was published in Nature Astronomy on April 24, 2017. "Instead of a prolonged, comet-like tail, this rough bubble-shape of the heliosphere is due to the strong interstellar magnetic field -- much stronger than what was anticipated in the past -- combined with the fact that the ratio between particle pressure and magnetic pressure inside the heliosheath is high," said Kostas Dialynas, a space scientist at the Academy of Athens in Greece and lead author on the study. An instrument on Cassini, which has been exploring the Saturn system over a decade, has given scientists crucial new clues about the shape of the heliosphere's trailing end, often called the heliotail. When charged particles from the inner solar system reach the boundary of the heliosphere, they sometimes undergo a series of charge exchanges with neutral gas atoms from the interstellar medium, dropping and regaining electrons as they travel through this vast boundary region. Some of these particles are pinged back in toward the inner solar system as fast-moving neutral atoms, which can be measured by Cassini.

• Radio User Rewarded for Public Service

Added at 2017-04-24 00:00:44

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



For most people, receiving simultaneous text alerts, email messages and calls to both home and cellphones in the middle of the night would be cause for alarm. But for Lynn Valley resident Bernie Leaker, a series of mass notifications to his personal electronic devices would signal a call to action. As an amateur radio operator and emergency services volunteer, Leaker is one of many individuals ready at a moment's notice to offer his communication skills in the event of a disaster. "We've been on standby for some evacuations as far as building fires and apartment fires on the North Shore," he says. "We're always heads up when there is an actual disaster, even somewhere else in the world, just in case we're able to chip in or help out." For his efforts in helping out, the provincial government gave Leaker a public safety lifeline volunteer award for his radio communications work last month, an honour that carries no small weight considering the vast number of radio communication hobbyists living throughout B.C. But although Leaker would be categorized as an amateur radio user and volunteer, he's no novice. Since 1998, he has made emergency preparedness and communications a personal focus. "There's lots to the hobby, but the part of the hobby that interested me was emergency communications and being able to communicate with other people throughout the world and throughout the province or municipality in the event of an emergency," he says. If and when an emergency or disaster were to strike, Leaker would be out there scanning the airwaves and searching various frequencies for signs of life or distress. By calling out to other radio users, he says, emergency communication volunteers can establish contact with survivors in an emergency and offer a guiding light to safety. "We could get the word out that we're OK or that we need help," Leaker says. "Often people rely quite heavily on their telephone, and in particular their cellphone, and potentially that technology would not be there for them in the event of an emergency."

• The ACMA's Approach to Spectrum Reform

Added at 2017-04-23 00:49:44

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



The Radiocommunications Act that has served Australia for 25 years is to be replaced by a modern approach to spectrum control and licensing. Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) Acting Chairman Richard Bean has given a little insight on what is ahead, during a CommsDay Summit 2017 speech in Sydney. Mr Bean said the radiofrequency spectrum can only increase in importance for economic and social activity, and a source of competitive commercial advantage. His speech on April 11 told of the ACMA's approach to the important reforms to better respond to pressures already building and developing approaches robust enough to support future innovation and growth. Mr Bean confirmed that a new legislative and policy framework is being developed by the government to open up significant reform opportunities, and the ACMA has been preparing for the journey ahead. Already known is that the Radiocommunications Act will be replaced to make Australia's spectrum framework simpler, more efficient and flexible to use.
