Wham! Bam! Thank You Sun | Space Weather News 05.02.2019

QRZ Now - Thu, 05/02/2019 - 1:54pm

“Our Sun really wakes up this week as we not only have some fast solar wind hitting Earth now that has already brought us up to active conditions, but we also have at least 4 solar storms that were launched on the Sun’s backside in less than 48 hours! Old regions 2738 and 2739 seem to be in an active region shootout to see which one can launch the biggest solar storm– Wham! Bam!

They are firing fast! As these regions rotate back into Earth view over the next few days, we will get a better look at them to see if they could possibly launch an Earth-directed solar storm once they reach the Earth-strike zone. Meanwhile, solar flux increases slowly, but as these regions rotate more into view, we could see flux rise back into the mid-70s. This means radio propagation could improve to marginal levels by week’s end! Learn the details of the fast solar wind hitting now, how long aurora might last, and what these returning regions have in store for us!”

QRZ Now - Thu, 05/02/2019 - 12:51pm

To mark the Coronation of King Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun(King Rama X) from May 4-6, 2019 the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand under the Patronage of His Majesty the King will be operating a special event station

The station will be operated from the Royal Thai Navy aircraft carrier, the Chakri Narubet, in the Gulf of Thailand from May 3-6 using the callsign HS10KING/mm.

This station will be making QSOs in the 40, 20, 15 and 10 metre HF bands, on 2 metres VHF and also using amateur radio satellites, including the Es’hail-2 / QO-100 satellite.

As usual all RAST members are welcome to attend this meeting and hopefully they will be able to have a QSO with HS10KING/mm.Consequently, the May meeting of RAST will be postponed to the second Sunday of the month, and will take place on Sunday May 12 at Sena Place Hotel when applications to take the upcoming Intermediate Class examination will be available

Sincere 73,

Tony Waltham, HS0ZDX

ARRL’s Free Exam Review for Ham Radio Updated

QRZ Now - Thu, 05/02/2019 - 8:09am

ARRL Exam Review for Ham Radio has been updated in advance of the release of the ninth edition of The ARRL General Class License Manual for Ham Radio. ARRL Exam Review is a free online resource for use with current editions of ARRL License Manuals. The service can be accessed via a web browser, and uses the official examination question pools to construct chapter-by-chapter reviews. Upon completing study, Exam Review helps the license candidate take practice exams with the same number and variety of questions that he or she will encounter on exam day. Practice tests can be taken over and over, scored in complete privacy, or even printed with an answer key. Exam Review includes quick feedback about the questions missed.

The update to Exam Review and the new edition General Class License Manualcoincides with a new General Class question pool released earlier this year by the National Conference of Volunteer Examiner Coordinators (NCVEC). The new 2019 – 2023 General Class question pool becomes effective July 1, 2019 for examinations in the Amateur Radio Service. The 2015 – 2019 General Class pool remains in effect for exams given until June 30, 2019. ARRL Exam Review provides access to both the current and new General Class questions.

A federally licensed service, Amateur Radio (or “ham radio”) provides the broadest and most powerful wireless communication capability available to private citizens anywhere in the world. ARRL, the national membership association for Amateur Radio licensees in the US, offers books, online content, and other resources for Amateur Radio licensing, operating, and lifelong learning.

For more information about getting started in Amateur Radio, visit What is Ham Radio or call 800-326-3942 (800-32 NEW HAM). ARRL can help you find local radio clubsclasses, and testing sites.

ARRL Reply Comments Stress Need to Update Technician Privileges in a Digital World

QRZ Now - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 1:13pm

In reply comments to the FCC (comments on comments already filed) on its Petition for Rule Making (RM-11828), ARRL has stressed that updating HF privileges for the entry-level Technician license “is the sole subject and intent” of the petition. ARRL filed its reply comments on April 29, urging the FCC to disregard comments irrelevant to its petition and maintaining that Technician privileges must be relevant within the context of today’s technological environment.

 

“[T]he increasingly rapid pace of change in communications technologies, coupled with the national need for self-training in science, technology, engineering, and math” necessitate the rule changes requested, ARRL asserted. “ARRL made its request because of the gap between today’s digital technologies and the privileges accorded the current entry-level Technician license.” ARRL characterized its proposal to update the rules as “balanced and modest.”

 

“If adopted, there would be no change to the operating privileges for all licenses classes other than those of the Technician class,” ARRL said. ARRL in 2018 asked the FCC to expand HF privileges for Technician licensees to include limited phone privileges on 75, 40, and 15 meters, plus RTTY and digital mode privileges on 80, 40, and 15 meters. The FCC invited comments on the proposal in April.

 

ARRL pointed out that some comments filed on its petition address subjects related to other open proceedings rather than expanding Technician privileges, citing comments cross-filed in such proceedings as WT Docket 16-239, RM-11708, RM-11759, and RM-11831. “Those filings should be considered in the proceedings that they address, rather than here,” ARRL said.

 

ARRL said some opposition appears based on fears of increased interference potential due to additional digital operation by Technicians. “It is improbable that all, or even a majority, of Technician licensees suddenly would develop a passion for the same digital technology,” ARRL said. “Our hope and expectation is that many will engage with digital modes on the high-frequency spectrum at issue, but it is unrealistic to suggest that every Technician licensee blessed with new privileges would suddenly appear on the same band.”

 

The comments note the development of very efficient digital modes such as FT8, which occupies just 90 Hz of spectrum per signal. “The experience with FT8 clearly demonstrates the attraction of the digital modes and the spectrum efficiencies that can be achieved,” ARRL said. “This is why opening up limited digital opportunities to new radio amateurs so clearly would serve the broad public interest as well as the specific purposes of Amateur Radio in experimentation and innovation, as enumerated in the governing FCC rules.”

 

ARRL further said that comments regarding disagreement on the definition of encryption for masking the content of certain digital transmissions also are “out of place in this proceeding” and “should not delay initiation of a proceeding” proposing to update Technician privileges.

 

“Technology has changed dramatically in the Amateur Radio domain, and the ARRL believes the requested Technician license enhancement would foster the regulatory goals for the Amateur Service and continue to increase amateurs’ historical experimentation and service in a meaningful way,” ARRL concluded.

A.R.I. International DX Contest 2019

QRZ Now - Wed, 05/01/2019 - 12:55pm

1. The Associazione Radioamatori Italiani (A.R.I.) has the honour of inviting radio amateurs from all over the world to participate in the ARI International DX Contest.

2. Aim: It is a world-wide competition: everybody can work everybody.

3. Date and time: The contest will be held on each first full week-end of May starting at 1200Z Saturday and ending at 1159Z Sunday. In year 2019 the dates will be May 4-5.

4. Categories:

I. Single Operator – CW – HIGH/LOW POWER
II. Single Operator – SSB – HIGH/LOW POWER
III. Single Operator – RTTY – HIGH/LOW POWER
IV. Single Operator – MIXED – HIGH/LOW POWER
V. Multi Operator – Single TX – MIXED & HIGH POWER only
VI. Multi Operator – Multi TX – MIXED & HIGH POWER only
VII. SWL – Single Operator – MIXED

Notes:

a) For Single-Operator, only one signal is permitted at any time.

b) Use of packet cluster, skimmers or any other alerting system is permitted for all entrants.

c) Self spotting or asking other stations to spot you is not allowed.

d) Multi-Operator Single TX stations must adhere to the 10 minutes rule (both runner and multiplier station). Only one band can be used within a 10 minutes period, while another band can be used only to work a new multiplier. The 10 minutes period starts when the first QSO is logged on that band. QSO in violation of the 10 minutes rule should be left in the log and they will be automatically deleted by the Committee but no extra penalties will be applied. Be aware that an excessive number of violations may lead to the disqualification of the entry.

e) LOW POWER category entrants can use 100W maximum total output power.

f) It is forbidden the dual-CQ on the same band.

g) For Multi-Operator Multi-TX stations only one transmitted signal per band is permitted.

5. Bands: Bands from 10m through 80m, except WARC bands, are allowed according to IARU Band Plans.

6. Exchange: Italian stations will send RST and two letters to identify their province. Other stations will send RST and a serial number from 001. The serial number will NOT restart from 001 on each band/mode except for the Multi-Operator Multi TX stations. Multi-Operator Multi TX stations will have separate serial number for each band.

 

7. Multipliers.

  • each Italian province (110) count 1 (one) multiplier,
  • each DXCC country (except I & IS0 & IT9) count 1 (one) multiplier.

The same multiplier (country/province) can be counted once and only once for each band.
The 110 Italian provinces (by call-area) are the following:

  • I1: AL, AT, BI, CN, GE, IM, NO, SP, SV, TO, VB, VC.
  • IX1: AO.
  • I2: BG, BS, CO, CR, LC, LO, MB, MI, MN, PV, SO, VA.
  • I3: BL, PD, RO, TV, VE, VI, VR.
  • IN3: BZ, TN.
  • IV3: GO, PN, TS, UD.
  • I4: BO, FC, FE, MO, PC, PR, RA, RE, RN.
  • I5: AR, FI, GR, LI, LU, MS, PI, PO, PT, SI.
  • I6: AN, AP, AQ, CH, FM, MC, PE, PS (or PU), TE.
  • I7: BA, BR, BT, FG, LE, MT, TA.
  • I8: AV, BN, CB, CE, CS, CZ, IS, KR, NA, PZ, RC, SA, VV.
  • I0: FR, LT, PG, RI, RM (or ROMA), TR, VT.
  • IT9: AG, CL, CT, EN, ME, PA, RG, SR, TP.
  • IS0: CA, NU, OR SS, SU

PLEASE REMEMBER that (Italy) IT9 (Sicily Island) and IS0 (Sardinia Island) are NOT country-multipliers.

8. QSO/Points:

  • QSO/HRD with own country counts 0 (zero) point but is good for the multipliers credit.
  • QSO/HRD with own continent counts 1 (one) point,
  • QSO/HRD with different continent counts 3 (three) points,
  • QSO/HRD with any Italian (I & IS0 & IT9) station counts 10 (ten) points.

The same station can be contacted on the same band once on SSB/CW/RTTY but only the first QSO is good for multiplier credit.

9. Final score: The Final Score is the sum of QSO/points from all bands multiplied by the sum of multipliers from all bands.

10. SWL Stations: Listeners are required to log both the callsign of the station heard and of the correspondent station. Score is calculated based only upon the station heard using the same rules as per the transmitting stations. A callsign may appear NOT more than 3 (three) times on each band as a correspondent station, regardless of mode.
WARNING/EXCEPTION: SWL log must be submitted within 60 hours after the end of the contest  (2359Z May 7, 2019)

11. LOG instructions:
ATTENTION PLEASE – LOG WEB UPLOAD ONLY

a. Only CABRILLO log will be accepted

Unsportsmanlike conduct may be found in the LOG data as well in any other recording mean available to the Committee.
All Contest Committee decisions are official and final.

13. Awards: A plaque will be awarded to the top scoring station in each category. Special plaques can be awarded by the Contest Committee if country/continental/call-area participation can justify such a decision. A digital award/certificate will be awarded to all stations and will be either sent by email or downloaded from the web-site.

14. Implicit Declaration: by submitting an entry in the ARI International DX Contest you agree that:

a) you have read and understood the rules of the contest and agree to be bound by them;
