Are you sure 10 meters isn't open? #ARRL #hamradio


Ten Meters
 is one of my favorite bands. Even when it's not "open", it's frequently open. With the sunspots on the rise, so should the activity on the band increase.


Have you found http://ten-ten.org/daily_nets.html yet? Nets listed there will help determine if the band is open. If you look at http://www.qsl.net/steelcity/nets/whichnet.html, one will see a search box that lets you know which nets are in operation.

http://www.dxwatch.com/dxsd1.php?f=92 or http://hamspots.net/10/ will also give you DX Cluster spots, just for 10 meters.

At http://www.vhfdx.info/spots/warnings.php, one can get email alerts when six meters is open. If SIX is open, it's almost a given that TEN is open.

http://www.dxmaps.com/spots/map.php?Lan=E&Frec=28&ML=M&Map=W2L&DXC=N&HF=N&GL=N also offers a map of openings AND the ability to post spots all in one place.


There's a number of 10 meter software defined radios that one can use to see where's the band is open. Two are dedicated to the "Beacon Band".

http://userpages.troycable.net/~wj5o/bcn.htm is a list of beacons on Ten. Tune here to see where the band is open, even when it's not.



Ten Meters is one of my favorite bands. Thankfully, there's plenty of tools to take some of the Magic out of the Band.  What is your favorite band?

13 Colonies event #ARRL #hamradio #RSGB

One of my personal favorite events in ham radio is the 13 Colonies

One has until the 7th of July to contact as many of the 13 original US colony stations as possible and there's a UK station along with two other stations for a total of 16 stations.

Look for them on HF.  Use DXwatch to check for spots. There's a spotting site dedicated to the event. Technician class operators, you have 10-meter privileges.  Will they be there?  Will you be there, when they are?

From a Yank who has a 12th great-grandmother who was Queen, there's more than COFFEE to help with the enjoyment.

When #FakeNews hits #hamradio @ARRL #ARRL

You've seen the note!  THEY are taking away your Two-Meter band.

This mysterious THEY is ONE country that is proposing to change two meters in France to aeronautical service.

One poster asked where the Federal Communications Commission and the American Radio Relay League is in the matter.

First, France is in International Amateur Radio Union Region 1.  When last checked, the USA is in Region 2.  The forty meter band alone would show there are different band plans for the three IARU regions.  The FCC has no jurisdiction anywhere but the USA.

Second, the ARRL represents 100% of amateur radio, including the 80% of those operators who aren't League members, before the IARU.  The proposal has yet to be discussed with all member nations.  One of the pesky details in the proposal, however, is the two-meter satellites on FM, SSB, and APRS, including the International Space Station.  AMSAT, to be sure, will likely issue a comment or two.

The best take on this issue was found in this tweet:

[Moon-Net] Latest News On the Current 2 m Band Allocation Discussion https://buff.ly/2XjwoEu #hamradio #arrl @IARU_R1 @amsat

Thanks to Bernd, DF2ZC, for the information from the German Amateur Radio Club, which on their front page, addressed the issue.  

He writes quite accurately ... 

Latest News On the Current 2 m Band Allocation Discussion 


As most of you probably are aware, for example from the email by John,
G4SWX, dated June 6th the French administration at short notice had handed
in a modified a proposal to WRC-19 preparatory groups at CEPT that WRC-19
should decide on feasibility studies for additional
Aeronautical-Mobile-Services(AMS) allocations in the range from 144 MHz to
22.2 GHz. 

Since I have some insight in this matter I would like to give you a short
information update on the situation.

 

If this proposal in its current version is endorsed at the next meeting of
the CEPT Conference Preparatory Group in August it is highly likely that it
will appear on the agendas of WRC-19 and WRC-23 where a final decision will
be made. At least 10 of the 48 CEPT countries have to be in favour of this
proposal while not more than 6 must be against this.

During the recent Meeting of the CEPT Project Team A in Prague this proposal
by France was being discussed for the first time. Only the German delegation
made it clear that they are against this proposal including 144-146 MHz.

The main reason for that little opposition might be that the 2 m band was
included in the revised version of that French proposal only few days before
the deadline for the Prague meeting. Consequently most other European
countries had no time for internal discussions let alone formulating their
position.

IARU, being supported by regulatory experts of their member associations
(RSGB, DARC, VERON etc) is intensively working on executing their influence
within the current process and trying to keep the 2 m band as it is now. By
the way, the cost of this activities is covered by the funds resulting from
the contributions of the IARU member societies. So those who left their
county's amateur radio society should perhaps reconsider their decision.
Without the commitment and the funds the amateur radio community would have
little influence in that process, let alone could be present at the relevant
meetings.

Most importantly, amateur radio should speak with a single voice only. So I
would like to ask everybody to refrain from using maybe good personal
contacts to your government or the EU. This would weaken our position and
take away power and vigour from the systematic approach by IARU and country
amateur radio societies. This particularly applies for online petitions in
the WWW.which by the way do not even base on a correct facts background. 

 

73 Bernd DF2ZC, designated Frequency Manager DARC

The Change.org petition is problematic in that it will only show the low numbers of respondents to everyone.  Amateur radio is a 2% population in the USA.  It's less in other places.  If you really want to make a difference, let your ARRL officials know.  Your Section Manager would be a good first step.

As Bernd mentions, above, it's problematic also because it's #FAKENEWS,  It's a STUDY; not a rule.

PLEASE be aware of your facts before starting petitions, spouting out on YouTube, emailing and blogging.  

One country does not get to dictate to the world, regardless of what the USA, USSR, and CHINA think.  Please let due process work.  Your ARRL is on top of this.  THAT is not FAKEnews.

The world sees us as divided #hamradio #teamJesus

If we were a church, with tongues, talking against those who don't do tongues or with a piano, talking against those who don't have a piano, the World would say we were divided.

If we have a fellow with D-Star hearing that "that's not real radio" from an AM only hobbiest, the World would say we are divided.

If we have 20 repeaters in a 20-mile radius of a town on 10K, how unified are we?  

Don't forget to put your best face on for the World.  We are at record levels of licensees.  Don't let them listen to 7200.  Let them listen to YOU tell them this is the BEST hobby on the Planet.

YOU are #Skywarn #hamradio


The links above are to the Wichita, Kansas and the Tulsa, Oklahoma Skywarn efforts.

Are you involved in Skywarn? No, not that yelling on TeeVee, passing in no-passing zones storm chaser action. Skywarn is local spotters using ham radio, Twitter, telephone to report conditions at the local level to the National Weather Service.

This effort, started in the 1970s, out of the 1950s video shows how local people report tornados and other severe weather events. Notice the video starts with coffee.

Are you involved in your LOCAL Skywarn program? Training is free. No souped-up vehicles required. SAFETY is imperative.

Making a comeback, @PromiseKeepers is doing a Stadium Event #ARRL #hamradio #teamJesus

Will there be any amateur radio #teamJesus folks at the PromiseKeepers Rally July 31- August 1, 2020 in Arlington, TX?  In the rallies of previous years, local repeater and simplex frequencies have been announced.  Bring your radio.  Bring your friends.

Look for activity on 147.51, please.

Statewide #hamradio repeater system closing service #ARRL

You saw the headline in Amateur Radio Newsline:


That's a tremendous loss to the Skywarn program in that Section alone.

Old folks are retiring.  Young folks have not found the need.  

Is your resource closing their doors?  What will you do to prevent it?

If you can find a BETTER National Organization ... #ARRL #hamradio

Lee Iacocca said, more than once, "If you can find a better car, buy it."



Lets apply this to amateur radio for a moment.



Lets apply this to the American Radio Relay League.



Can you find a better "National Association for Amateur Radio"?



Does this other organization offer insurance for its members, representation before the Federal Communications Commission, an office in Washington, DC, friendly staff at Newington who answer phone calls and emails?



You have found a better National organization?



Do TELL!  What organization is it?



If not, then join the League.

Morse Code Anniversary observed #ARRL #hamradio

"The first message sent by Morse code’s dots and dashes across a long distance traveled from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore on Friday, May 24, 1844-175 years ago."


There are a lot of CW operators left.  In fact, perhaps there are more CW operators than your favorite mode.

If you are interested in Morse Code, drop over to Learn CW Online.  It's a handy site for learning and brushing up on your skill.

No, CW is not required for an amateur radio license but it's still good to know, ex. while flying past various VOR sites.

What is #FakeHamRadio? #ARRL #hamradio

You saw the Tweet:

This appears to be a disturbing trend on #HamRadio.  My technology is better than your technology.  "I like AM, FM, FT8, MT63, APRS, CW, D-Star, AllStar, Echolink, IRLP, insert your favorite mode here."

Folks, it's a big hobby.  My Icom dial goes south of 7.200 just as well as it goes north of it.  The power button is amazing.  Working simplex is just as enjoyable as repeaters (except the satellites are fun).  Nets are good for me but CW QSOs are enjoyable.  FM really is the Fun Mode but I'm still trying to get my Sidewinders On Two number.  With a hotspot in the car or at home, Allstar is great.  Skywarn is rewarding.  Chatting on APRS is fun too, on voice OR text.

Just as the Democrats, Libertarians, and Republicans, etc. want you to vote for them, we are a United States.  We also are the BEST Hobby on the Planet.  Don't forget the public ... the ham radio wannabes ... are watching.  Please create a unified front to them.  Give them a reason to join the ranks.  Bashing others is not going to be the way.

By the way, please join the chat on 3.885 Amplitude Modulation on the first Wednesday of the month.  Some of the best sounds on High Frequency can be heard on the Coast to Coast AM net can be heard.  Put your radio in AM mode and check into the net.  If done right, they can't tell you don't have a Gonset, Hammarlund, or Heathkit transmitter.

League Proposes Move to Delaware #ARRL #HamRadio

Two agenda items on the Executive Committee agenda for May are noteworthy.

First, the move from Connecticut to Delaware is wise but the move is not far enough west.  For an "Eight to Five" organization, the League would better service the Members if the relocation was further west.  There's land in Oklahoma.

In order to reach someone by phone at HQ, an Alaska or Hawaii amateur would have to get up at Dark Thirty.  Thankfully, the League has streamlined some customer service by using the web, online ordering, and email.

However, having Headquarters more centrally located out west, the League could serve better with lower transportation and shipping costs, if even for one or two time zones difference.

The other issue, the graduated Life Membership, is a good idea.  A 70-year-old would not live long enough to realize the benefit for the membership.  Yes, the League is a good organization and one I'm happy to support with an annual membership but, at the current lifetime cost, it's unreasonable to think a retiree, especially on a fixed income, is likely to jump at the opportunity.

Howard still works at @ARRL but ... #ARRL #hamradio

The "Put Howard to Work" event, which was to be presented on Monday, May 13, by the ICQ Amateur Radio Podcast and feature ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, has been cancelled. Here is the official statement:


Earlier this week an announcement was made that ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, was going to be on air at Maxim Memorial Station W1AW on Monday afternoon, May 13, with the intent of giving ARRL members a chance to chat with the CEO and get to know him better as a ham. However, an issue was raised about this being a potential violation of FCC rules, in particular, Section 97.113 which states that "A station is also not allowed to transmit communication in which the station licensee or control operator has a pecuniary interest, including communications on behalf of an employer."

Given that the ARRL is Michel's employer, and that there was an effort to publicize an event at which members of the organization could chat with the CEO, such an event could be perceived as a benefit to the organization.

So out of an abundance of caution and to avoid any potential violation of FCC rules, or even an appearance of a violation, Michel has decided to suspend plans for the "Put Howard to Work" event that was scheduled for Monday, May 13.

Have you found the #teamJesus nets?


It seems to me that Jesus would have been an amateur radio operator, though, realistically, He would not need a radio, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN, or Google+ technology to reach the hearts and minds of men.

However, I'm a Christian ham ... a member of the Christian Amateur Radio Fellowship and have participated in the Bible Fellowship Net.

Here's some others who mix their hobby with the Faith.






A number of RemoteHams stations are dedicated to Christian Networks.  Can't reach your favorite net because of propagation?  Check the remotes.

#HamRadio Twitter #FF recommendations

At least once per month, a Tweet does out recommending Friday Followers.

Have a plan for less than 13 minutes. #Skywarn #hamradio #OKwx #KSwx

The current average lead-time for tornado warnings is 13 minutes.

You have 13 minutes, at the most, to receive a warning from the National Weather Service and act on it.

How will you get your warning?  Professionals encourage three ways.

1.  Local government text and email alerts such as the service provided by Cowley County Emergency Management.  If your local government doesn't provide this service, there are a number of free services that do. WeatherCall costs $10 per year.

2.  Local AM/FM/Television media.  Don't hate them for breaking into your programming.  It's required.  You need a BATTERY-Powered receiver for when the power goes out.

3.  Ham Radio clubs partner with the National Weather Service to relay reports.  This is part of the Skywarn program.  Of course, ham radio is not required to participate in Skywarn, but who "you gonna call" when the power goes out.  Many offer feeds on Broadcastify so you can listen without needing a license.

4.  Even Newspapers offer text alerts.

5.  Twitter ... many National Weather Service offices tweet information beforehand and many other services offer warning via this method and Facebook.

There are others.  All told, there's a number of different ways listed above.  This is the first and last mention of sirens.  What are your three?

#Skywarn and #hamradio

Do you have three ways to get information from the National Weather Service?

The Weather Service, for years, have reminded folks that Weather Radio is reliable but it can fail.  Local media may be broadcasting during an ice storm but your AM/FM/Television may not receive the signal during the power outage.

It's important to have three ways to call, text information to the National Weather Service.  Ham Radio is a reliable method, even on simplex, when the repeaters fail.  

Is amateur radio part of your communications plan?

Automatic Packet Reporting
System is useful to send text
messages also.

Chasers! Please be SAFE! Report PLEASE! #Skywarn @NWSNorman @NWSWichita @NWSTulsa @TrooperBenKHP @OHPDPS

First, setting the record straight, this is NOT ANTI-CHASER.  It IS pro-safety.

The GOAL is a reduction in the loss of life and property.  While the numbers have trended down over the decades, there's never been a year where a storm doesn't injure or kill someone somewhere.

CHASERS!  The goal includes a reduction in the loss of life and property, including you, your friends, your chase vehicle.

In 2011, this note was sent by an emergency manager:

To: The WX-CHASE list

Since I'm not around ground zero this afternoon, I took some time to
watch some of the video samples available on the various video
streams.

I observed speed too fast for conditions (wet roads and hail),
following too close (can't you count one-one thousand, two
one-thousand after you pass a yellow line or pothole?), inattentive
driving (at least two left of center), one busted a red light, a
couple or three almost rear-ended the car in front.

Folks, if you are going to tell the world you are safely operating
your motor vehicle, the pictures need to match.  If you are going to
put a picture of you in the car driving, it helps if you pay attention
to what you do instead of dinking on the PC, talking on the radio, dig
for something on the floor or in the back seat, etc.  Don't you all
have partners?

Maybe it would be a better practice to NOT show video while you are
breaking the law.  After all, these end up on TV and you don't get
paid.

I'm getting the idea that this is too hard for some but, please, TRY
to be SAFE out there.  Tomorrow you are in Oklahoma.  I will be too
busy to watch but I bet someone in a clearly marked car will be.

Fast forward to a recent Skywarn safety talk by the National Weather Service office in Norman and the National Weather Service office in Wichita.  The goal is reinforced every year.

The Wichita Eagle reports:  


As storm chasing grows in popularity, so do the problems


There was hope this year at ChaserCon where folks from the Kansas and Oklahoma Highway Patrol joined a panel to talk about vehicle safety in storms.

There were positive results; one could hope they continue.

Then a ham radio fellow posted a video of a chaser willingly driving into debris in his effort to be a "free lance photographer".  The individual was not reporting anything to anyone who could actually warn the public. 

The online discussion went downhill from there. 

At any rate, for #Skywarn ACES is Awareness, Communication, Escape Routes, Safe Zones. https://t.co/pkKFwPtydk is the training site. #wrn @WRNAmbassadors @Kia pic.twitter.com/2hcZ2mdCfl

Awareness
Communication
Escape Routes
Safe Zones

All that's included in the online Skywarn class.

As one emergency manager once said more than once "Situational Awareness is a TERRIBLE thing to lose."

Willingly driving into an active debris field is dangerous and speaks to the loss of situational awareness.  Being in the area of a tornado and filming it, certainly speaks volumes to the lack of community spirit, when the tornado goes unreported.  

"We're all going to DIE" are the last recorded words of one veteran chaser crew.  Friends, if it can happen to them, it's pretty apparent we are ALL not bullet-proof.

For nearly 60 years, the only known chaser deaths were driving-related. The first was Christopher Phillips, a University of Oklahoma undergraduate student, killed in a hydroplaning accident when swerving to miss a rabbit in 1984.[26] Three other incidents occurred when Jeff Wear was driving home from a hurricane chase in 2005,[27] when Fabian Guerra swerved to miss a deer while driving to a chase in 2009,[28] and when a wrong-way driver resulted in a head-on collision that killed Andy Gabrielson returning from a chase in 2012.[29] On 31 May 2013, an extreme event led to the first known chaser deaths inflicted directly by weather when the widest tornado ever recorded struck near El Reno, Oklahoma. Engineer Tim Samaras, his photographer son Paul, and meteorologist Carl Young were killed doing in situ probe and infrasonic field research by an exceptional combination of events in which an already large and rain-obscured tornado swelled within less than a minute to 2.6 miles (4.2 km) wide simultaneously as it changed direction and accelerated.[30][31] Several other chasers were also struck and some injured by this tornado and its parent supercell's rear flank downdraft.[32] Three chasers were killed, two in one vehicle and one in another, when their vehicles collided in West Texas in 2017, bringing the total number of known traffic related fatalities to 7.[33] There are other incidents in which chasers were injured by automobile accidents, lightning strikes, and tornado impacts.[citation needed] While chasing a tornado outbreak on 13 March 1990, KWTV television photographer Bill Merickel was shot and injured near Lindsay, Oklahoma.[34][35]

Friends from Germany come to the USA to study storms and share mutually beneficial techniques in Skywarn.  These folks are very comfortable with autobahn speeds.  The reports received from them indicate more of a concern for chasers than for the storm itself.

A former volunteer (still friend) turned tornado tour guide offers similar observations.

The current average lead-time for tornado warnings is 13 minutes.

How would you like to live in a community where the lead time went from seven minutes to ZERO because a chaser is spending time videoing, without reporting, the tornado seven minutes away from the community that got NO lead time?  There's a video proving that.  

To rephrase the goal from a retired emergency manager, "NO one dies on my shift".  One of these days, he'll quit caring if you arrive alive or not.  Until then, please memorize this photo:
