State QSO Party Challenge Announced

QRZ Now - 3 hours 19 min ago

The State QSO Party Challenge is a competition comprised of other contests, namely state and provincial QSO parties. As explained on the website, the annual cumulative score program is open to any radio amateur who participates in any approved state QSO parties (SQPs).

Participants just need to submit their QSO party scores to 3830scores.com to enter the challenge. Participants’ cumulative scores will be calculated by totaling up the number of reported contacts and multiplying by the number of SQPs entered in the year to date. Periodic standings will be posted to 3830scores.com, the QSOParty Groups.io forum, and the StateQSOParty.com website.

“Using the number of QSO parties entered as a multiplier is expected to encourage radio amateurs to enter more state/province QSO parties,” the program’s organizers said. “The first SQPs in 2020 are the Vermont, Minnesota, and British Columbia QSO Parties in the first weekend of February.”

Entrants must make at least two contacts in a QSO party for it to count as a multiplier. Full details are available on the State QSO Party Challenge website. Challenge sponsors expressed appreciation to Bruce Horn, WA7BNM, for developing the SQP Activity Tracker on 3830scores.com.

Slow Scan TV from ISS January 30-31

QRZ Now - 6 hours 53 min ago

Russian cosmonauts are expected to activate Slow Scan Television (SSTV) image transmissions on 145.800 MHz FM from the International Space Station on Thursday, January 30 and Friday, January 31 as part of the MAI-75 experiment.

The expected activation times are:
• Thursday, Jan 30 at 13:30 – 19:00 GMT
• Friday, Jan 31 at 15:00 -17:30 GMT

Note: The computer that supports this activity failed recently so a replacement is being used. It is unknown what impact this may have to the operations.

Transmissions will be made on 145.800 MHz FM (5 kHz deviation) in the SSTV mode PD-120. Once received, images can be posted and viewed by the public at http://www.spaceflightsoftware.com/ARISS_SSTV/index.php

ISS SSTV uses a Kenwood TM D710E transceiver which is part of the amateur radio station located in the Russian ISS Service Module.

Please note that SSTV events are dependent on other activities, schedules and crew responsibilities on the ISS and subject to change at any time. You can check for updates regarding planned operation at:

QRPGuys K8TND Regenerative Receiver – $40

QRZ Now - 10 hours 26 min ago

“How better to explore the world of shortwave listening than with a regenerative receiver. The QRPGuys K8TND Regenerative Receiver covers the 60, 49, 41, 31, 25 meter shortwave bands (approximately 4.5 to 12.7 MHz), with a receiver you build complete from the supplied chassis pieces, electrical components, and hardware. You connect the receiver to a simple wire antenna, that can be a simple wire in the attic, or one thrown up in a tree.

Cliff Donley (K8TND) heavily modified a basic Kitchin design, with varactor tuning and toroid inductors. We incorporated Cliff’s design into a compact pcb chassis and with controls for Coarse Tuning, Fine Tuning, Regeneration control, and Volume. There is an attenuator that can be switched in at the antenna to prevent strong stations from overloading the input. The LM386 will drive inexpensive ear buds or a small speaker connected to the rear mounted 3.5mm audio jack. The chassis and component pcb are pre-cut and forms a sturdy assembly with the printed circuit board as an integral component of the completed unit. It is powered either by an on-board 9V battery or can use a 12V supply connected to the rear 2.1mm x 5.5mm pcb jack. All the electrical, chassis, and mechanical components are included in the kit with the exception of the battery, earbuds, and wire antenna. The receiver is 4.50″ wide x 3.00″ deep x 2.00″ high.  On a difficulty scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the most difficult, this is rated at 2 to 3, depending on your experience.”

HuskySat-1 with VHF/UHF Linear Transponder Set to Deploy Soon

QRZ Now - Mon, 01/27/2020 - 3:35pm

The University of Washington’s HuskySat-1 3U CubeSat, launched November 2, 2019, is set to deploy on January 31 after the vehicle that carried it to the International Space Station undocks. HuskySat-1 has remained stowed aboard a Northrop Grumman Cygnus supply vehicle. Within 24 hours after Cygnus’ departure from the ISS, HuskySat-1 and SwampSat 2 will be deployed into orbit. After deployment, HuskySat-1’s 1,200 bps BPSK beacon on 435.800 MHz should be active and decodable with the latest release of AMSAT’s FoxTelem software. HuskySat-1 is expected to carry out its primary mission before being turned over to AMSAT for amateur radio operation.

HuskySat-1 features a 30 kHz wide V/U linear transponder for SSB and CW. The uplink passband will be 145.910 – 145.940 MHz LSB/CW. The downlink passband will be 435.840 – 435.810 MHz USB/CW (inverting). Telemetry will be transmitted on 435.800 MHz, 1k2 bps BPSK with an experimental downlink at 24.049 GHz. The “Fox-in-a-Box” FoxTelem software has been updated for HuskySat-1 operation at its download website. The new release now contains the SD card image, FIAB-distro8-V1.08w.zip. This file, when unzipped and written to a 16 GB SD card will provide the latest software for FoxTelem and will run on a Raspberry Pi 4. The 1.08 versions can switch bands between listening on VHF and UHF, based on which Fox and Husky satellites are overhead at the time.

 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The linear transponder and telemetry system carried aboard AMSAT’s Fox-1E was designed for use in different CubeSats merely by adding an interface adapter for connection to the host bus. Noting the prevalence of CubeSats built and launched by universities and other organizations, AMSAT adopted a goal of “amateur radio in every CubeSat.” Interested CubeSat programs wanting to fly an amateur radio payload may partner with AMSAT to carry one of these modules on their spacecraft.

 

By providing amateur radio capability, the CubeSat program gets a worldwide ground station network to receive telemetry and experiment data, while the amateur radio community gets a transponder to use in orbit. Additional information is posted on the University of Washington Husky Satellite Lab siteThanks to AMSAT News Service via the HuskySat-1 Team, AMSAT Engineering, AMSAT Operations, the Fox Telemetry Team, and NASA
