Ham Band Intruders Ham Band Intruders

The International Amateur Radio Union Monitoring Service (IARUMS) reports interference on 40 meters from various Russian sources. The Russian coastal over-the-horizon (OTH) radar “Sunflower” was very active on 40 meters and audible in Europe in the evenings, transmitting FM on pulse. The site is believed to be northeast of Vladivostok. IARUMS Region 1 Coordinator Wolf Hadel, DK2OM, said it was monitored in September.

In addition, a Russian ship was observed transmitted on 7,110 kHz on F1B with 50 baud and 200 Hz shift. The vessel was believed to be in the area around and east of Cyprus, on the air daily in September running F1B with 50 baud and 200 Hz shift. Another Russian ship was heard on September 18 transmitting AT3004D with 12 × 120 baud PSK2A on 7,179 kHz with a 2.6 kHz bandwidth in the area of Crete. And a Russian military system, believed to be near Moscow, was heard transmitting on 7,198 kHz in AT3004D test mode.

Elsewhere fishing crews often were monitored on 3,500, 3,535, 3,540, 3,560, 3,585, 3,590, 7,000 kHz, and 14,320 USB.

USB micro KEYER III – MicroHam

QRZ Now - Sun, 10/07/2018 - 2:06pm

 

MicroHam

micro KEYER III is the world first and the only amateur radio USB interface featuring high dynamic range, 24-bit audio processing chain on all signal stages. It is the most powerful single radio All-In-One USB interface and the only USB interface to fully support digital and voice operation including microphone switching in one box.

With a single USB port, micro KEYER III works with any Windows-based logging or control program for CW, Voice, FSK and Digital operation (RTTY, FT8, WSJT, PSK31, SSTV, etc.).

micro KEYER III includes a CAT, radio control interface that supports all common standards A(RS-232, CI-V, Kenwood and Yaesu TTL), a powerful CW memory keyer using genuine K1EL’s WinKey, a Digital Voice Keyer for SSB, two channel audio processing for transceivers with dual receivers, automatic microphone selection, and a buffer/sequencer for amplifier or LNA control.

Compared to 16-bit audio interfaces, or to any USB enabled transceiver, including flagship transceivers from well known manufacturers (as of autumn 2018), unique 24-bit USB audio processing in the micro KEYER III provides advantage in higher dynamic range (>105dB), preserving transceiver performance also for audio processing on computer (digital modes), otherwise limited by 16-bit USB audio signal chain.

INRAD W1

*Photo N6MJ

New for 2018:  The INRAD W1 competition headset.  Following the successful introduction of the INRAD Desk Microphone System in 2017 and its excellent reviews from both the ham community at large and the ARRL‘s QST Product Review, we introduce this new unique headset for DXing, contesting, or general use on the air. 

THE INRAD W1

Ham radio never sounded so good!

  • Comfortable over-the-ear earpieces with large diaphragm high response speakers

  • Full stereo reception to allow use with dual receiver transceivers

  • 600 ohm dynamic microphone element on adjustable long boom with the best sounding headset transmit audio in ham radio

  • Unique headband tilt-back feature as used on pro broadcast headsets.

  • Extra wide and thick rubberized foam top padding for long stretches of wearing the headset while DXing or contesting

  • Light: weighs only 13 ounces. Avoid the neck and head fatigue associated with modified aircraft headsets sold by other companies.

  • Extra long straight + coiled cable with total length of almost 7 feet. 4 ½ feet straight + 1 ½ feet coiled + 1 ft straight. Coiled section can be stretched out an additional 2 feet if desired.

  • Rig mic jack adapters available for 8 pin modern Icom rigs, 8 pin Yaesu / Ten-Tec, 8 pin Kenwood / Elecraft, RJ-45 Yaesu, 3 pin TRS FlexRadio 6400/6600.

amzn_assoc_placement = "adunit0"; amzn_assoc_enable_interest_ads = "true"; amzn_assoc_tracking_id = "qn0c-20"; amzn_assoc_ad_mode = "auto"; amzn_assoc_ad_type = "smart"; amzn_assoc_marketplace = "amazon"; amzn_assoc_region = "US"; amzn_assoc_linkid = "4969cf2edaec6bf602678d298f572f59";

The right features for long hours of radio communication use.  

           Starting with comfortable over-the-ear earpieces.  Your ear goes inside the cup rather than having

earphone

    padding pushing your ear backward against the head, leading to pain after hours of use.  Headband fatigue is another potential problem with long-term headset use.  Modified aircraft headsets sold by others for ham radio use push down on the top of the head because they are heavy and lack adequate padding at the top.  We have solved this problem with two features.  First, thick rubberized foam padding at the top of the headband that molds to the head when in use.  Second, like broadcast headsets, the W1 has a tilt-and-click headband tilt feature.  The headband can be tipped back as far as 30 degrees off vertical without moving the earpieces, in addition to standard up/down movement of the band.
           Receive and transmit audio sound terrific.  Large diaphragm high response speakers provide clear, clean articulation of receive audio.  Stereo connector for use with dual receive transceivers if desired.  Transmit audio is from a 600 ohm dynamic microphone element that’s the correct impedance for your

HF transceiver

    and has excellent response from 50 Hz-15 kHz.   Sounds great for DXing, contesting, and general on-the-air use.
         Extra long straight and coiled cable from the headset to the radio.  7 feet total length.  4 feet of straight section, followed by 1 1/2 feet coiled for RF suppression, then 1 foot straight to the adapter for the radio mic jack.  Connect the 1/8″ mono transmit audio jack on the headset to an INRAD M-series mic jack adapter and you’re ready to operate.

The right price and the right customer service.

         Headsets are not treated gently.  They are a tool, and tools are made to be used.  Rough handling means headsets have to be well-built to stand up to it, and that the manufacturer will stand behind them also.  We offer a 1 year unconditional warranty for parts and labor.  We will repair or replace your headset at our option.  You only pay the shipping cost to send it to us.
             All the features you need in an

Amateur Radio headset

    • , plus the customer service and warranty to back it are available at the excellent price of only

 $179 plus shipping

    • .  M-series headset mic jack adapters, sold separately, are $14.95.

W1 is in stock and now shipping!

      The W1-B mic boom mic kit only and W1-E element only to be available later in October.

Radio Theory Causes Commotion

Ham Hijinks - Fri, 10/05/2018 - 3:49pm

GOLDEN SPIKE, MONTANA – Buttery biscuits were thrown and voices were raised in anger at last month’s meeting of the Gold Diggers Amateur Radio Club. According to witnesses, the proceedings turned tense after the Treasurer’s report as Club president Lou Rodden’s brother-in-law presented the monthly program.

Visiting from Square Butte Township, Nebraska, Mike Yuness told the group he has developed a technique which will “revolutionize radio broadcasting.”

The amateur geologist and ham radio operator says he’s come up with a way to ionize the Earth’s molten core of magma and use it to send radio signals to the far corners of the globe.

As members lunched on braised beef tips and unlimited onion rings, Yuness raised the question: “Why go around the earth…when you can go through it?”

He describes his technique as a “cross between spark gap and digital,” but declined to elaborate due to what he described as “very costly and ongoing patent infringement issues which must be resolved at great expense.”

Yuness stated emphatically that ham operators thousands of miles away will be able to communicate “…using nothing more than common grounding rods.”

As the hams looked on, club member Junior Brown bolted from his chair yelling, “You’re a liar!” and shaking a fist while throwing a basket of cloverleaf rolls at the presenter with the other hand.

Brown – who makes a comfortable living selling HF antennas made from recycled lawn chairs – says Yuness is only trying to collect money for his GoFundMe account and has no credible facts to back up his ionized magma core theory.

Dodging the rolls, Yuness yelled, “I’ve had a number of heated exchanges about this topic in online forums, BUT I KNOW I’M CORRECT!”

Brown claims Yuness and Rodden want the GoFundMe money to pay for their next trip to the Dayton Hamvention in the spring.

The Golden Spike Amateur Radio Club meetings on the third Thursday of the month in the private dining area of the Golden Corral on East Winchester Street. The public is invited to attend.

Investigation into International Space Station Leak Continues

QRZ Now - Fri, 10/05/2018 - 1:14pm
International Space Station Leak

NASA has issued a statement regarding a leak affecting the International Space Station (ISS). On August 29, a mysterious 2-millimeter hole was discovered on a Soyuz capsule docked to the ISS, resulting in a pressure leak.

The Soyuz capsule last carried to the ISS cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev, and astronauts Serena Auñón-Chancellor, KG5TMT, and Alexander Gerst, KF5ONO. It is scheduled to return them to Earth in December.

The hole, which appeared to have been drilled, was repaired by the crew. Roscosmos said this week that the hole was not drilled by accident, opening the possibility of sabotage. Roscosmos Director General Dmitry Rogozin earlier ruled out a manufacturing defect.

 

“[This] indicates that this is an isolated issue which does not categorically affect future production,” the NASA statement said. “This conclusion does not necessarily mean the hole was created intentionally or with mal-intent.”

Roscosmos has claimed the hole may have been drilled by a technician on the ground.

NASA and Roscosmos continue to investigate the incident to determine the cause, and a November spacewalk is planned in order to gather more information.

On October 11, US Astronaut Nick Hague, KG5TMV, and Russian Cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin will head to the ISS aboard a Russian Soyuz MS-10 spacecraft. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine is scheduled to attend the launch and plans to meet with Rogozin at that time.
