HamCation QSO Party Set

Tue, 01/19/2021 - 09:29

Orlando HamCation has announced it will sponsor the HamCation QSO Party over the February 13 – 14 weekend (UTC), “to create a fun way for amateurs to celebrate the Orlando HamCation experience over the air.” The HamCation QSO Party will be a 12-hour event on HamCation weekend. HamCation 2021 was to host the ARRL National Convention, which now will take place in 2022.

“The QSO party will replicate the camaraderie and social experience of attending HamCation and provide a way to have fun on the radio, since HamCation 2021 will not be held due to COVID-19,” the HamCation QSO Party Committee said. The HamCation QSO Party will run from 1500 UTC on February 13 until 0300 UTC on February 14. It will be a CW and SSB operating event on 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. Any station may work any other station.

Categories will be High Power (more than 100 W output), Low Power (100 W output or less, but greater than 5 W), and QRP (5 W output or less). All participants will be single operators; there is no multioperator category. The exchange will be your name and state/province/country, and the outside temperature at your location. “We are including temperature at your QTH as a way of highlighting Orlando’s mild February weather,” the committee said.

Nine HamCation special event stations with 1 × 1 call signs will be on the air with combined suffixes spelling out HamCation (e.g., K4H, W4A, K4M, etc). Each contact will count as one point, and stations may be worked once on each band and mode. Entrants will report their scores on www.3830Scores.com; no logs are required. Final results will be based on the information submitted to the website.

Station guest operators must use their own call signs and submit their scores individually. Plaques and certificates will be awarded.

ARRL on the Purpose of Amateur Radio

Mon, 01/18/2021 - 07:32

For over 100 years amateur radio and ARRL — the National Association for Amateur Radio® — have stood for the development of the science and art of communications, public service, and the enhancement of international goodwill. Amateur Radio’s long history and service to the public has solidified the well-earned reputation that “Amateur Radio saves lives.”

Amateur Radio Operators, due to their history of public service, their training, and the requirement that they be licensed by the FCC have earned their status as a component of critical communications infrastructure and as a reliable resource “when all else fails.”

Amateur Radio is about development of communications and responsible public service. Its misuse is inconsistent with its history of service and its statutory charter. ARRL does not support its misuse for purposes inconsistent with these values and purposes.

SL8SUB – 1st Submarine Flotillas official military amateur radio call sign

Fri, 01/15/2021 - 17:32

Here is a brief information release regarding Radio SL8SUB, the 1st Submarine Flotillas official military amateur radio call sign:

The 1st Submarine Flotilla, within The Swedish Armed Forces, is located in Karlskrona, in the east southernmost part of Sweden.

We have been operating military amateur radio on HF and VHF, on FM, CW, AM and SSB, from i.e. the following submarines:

– HMUb Halsingland (Hgd; now decommissioned),
– HMUb Uppland (Upd; as berthed, as /MM and as submerged),
– HMUb Ostergotland (Ogd),
– HMUb Spiggen (Spi; midget submarine, now decommissioned), and also from:
– HMSwS Belos (Bel; as berthed and as /MM), our diving and submarine salvage ship.

Furthermoore from the decomissioned submarines Hajen, U3 and HMUb Nordkaparen (Nor).

Our very first QSO from an operative submarine was made at HMUb Hgd in August 2003, from Gothenburg, on the Swedish west coast. SL8SUB normally participates in IMSWE, the International Museum Ships Weekend Event, in the beginning of June every year.

QSL direct via manager SM6DQR, preferably by SASE, or send them to the SM Bureau.

Our QSL cards is reprinted during spring-summer 2019, causing a delay in the QSL delivery, so please be a little bit patient – they will come!

GMY &73’s!
SL8SUB

(The photo shows HMUb Hgd arriving to Gothenburg Harbour in August 2003, at the 100 year celebration of Swedish Submarines).

The K7RA Solar Update

Fri, 01/15/2021 - 11:27

Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: What happened? Solar Cycle 25 seemed well under way, but no new sunspots have emerged since December 23. The last time any sunspot was visible was January 2. On January 14, Spaceweather.com posted, “Welcome back, solar minimum.”

Average daily solar flux declined from 78.6 to 73.8. Geomagnetic A index remained quiet. Predicted solar flux for the next 30 days is 73, 73, and 74 on January 14 – 16; 75 on January 17 – 19; 73 and 75 on January 20 – 21; 78 on January 22 – 27; 77 on January 28 – 31; 75 on February 1 – 6, and 74 on February 7 – 12. Solar flux is expected to peak at 78 again after February 14.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on January 14 – 16; 10, 12, 10, and 8 on January 17 – 20; 5 on January 21 – 24; 8 on January 25 – 26; 5 on January 27 – 31; 10 on February 1 – 2, and 5 on February 3 – 12.

Here’s the geomagnetic activity forecast for January 15 – February 10, 2021 from F.K. Janda, OK1HH. The geomagnetic field will be:

  • quiet on  January 22, 28 – 30, February 4, 10
  • quiet to unsettled on  January 23, 25, 27, February 5 – 6, 9
  • quiet to active on  January 15 – 16, 21, 24, 26, 31, February 1, 3
  • unsettled to active  January 17 – 20, February 2, 7 – 8
  • active to disturbed  none predicted
  • Solar wind will intensify on January (19 – 20,) 21, (25 – 27, 31) February (1,) 2 – 3

Notes:

Parentheses mean lower probability of activity enhancement.

The predictability of changes is lower again, as there are ambiguous and changing indicators.

Peering at the STEREO spacecraft, at I see a promising bright spot a few days from now in our sun’s southern hemisphere, so perhaps that indicates a new sunspot over the solar horizon. But I have been fooled by bright spots on STEREO in the past that did not emerge as sunspots.

A few days ago, Space Weather Woman Tamitha Skov, WX6SWW, posted this video.

Jon Jones, N0JK, reports E-skip on 6 meters:

“Sporadic-E on 50 MHz dropped off after the first week of January. There was a sporadic-E opening I found January 10 with K8TB (EN72) in on FT8 at 1937 UTC.

“On January 14, a rare and unusual opening on 6 meters occurred between New England, VE1, and Europe. DK8NW and DK1MAX were spotted at 1415 UTC by WW1L (FN54).

“HA2NP was spotted by VE1P UTC (FN85) at 1436 UTC.  VE1PZ was spotted by OH6MW at 1430 UTC calling CQ on 50.313 MHz FT8.

“Propagation mode unclear but probably multi-hop sporadic-E. Solar flux only 73, unlikely to be F2.”

Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LA, gave an excellent talk on propagation for the Madison DX Club on January 12. The video will be posted soon. Until then, you can also watch a presentation on Solar Cycle 25 by Douglas Biesecker of NOAA via the same link.

Here’s some more speculation about Solar Cycle 25.

WB8VLC in Salem, Oregon (CN84lv), sent an extensive listing of DX he’s worked over the past few months, none of it using FT8 — just phone and CW. Recently on January 10 using a homemade Moxon antenna at 24 feet on 17 meters he worked TZ4AM on CW in Mali at 1903 UTC with 599 signals both ways, and a few minutes earlier at 1857 UTC on SSB he worked V51WH in Namibia, with S-9 signals that persisted for 2 hours.

In late November on 10 meter FM, he worked Brazil, Costa Rica, and Jamaica.

He wrote, “I like to promote the upper bands 10 and 12 meters to show that they are open more often than one would think.”

Sunspot numbers for January 7 – 13 were 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, and 0, with a mean of 0. The 10.7-centimeter flux was 74.6, 75.2, 74.2, 73.1, 73.2, 72.8, and 73.2, with a mean of 73.8. Estimated planetary A indices were 6, 2, 3, 3, 14, 9, and 4, with a mean of 5.9. Middle latitude A index was 4, 1, 2, 3, 10, 8, and 3, with a mean of 4.4.

For more information concerning radio propagation, visit the ARRL Technical Information Service, read “What the Numbers Mean…,” and check out K9LA’s Propagation Page.

A propagation bulletin archive is available. For customizable propagation charts, visit the VOACAP Online for Ham Radio website.

Instructions for starting or ending email distribution of ARRL bulletins are on the ARRL website.

Dayton Hamvention Cancels 2021 Show

Tue, 01/12/2021 - 08:10

Dayton Hamvention® will not take place for the second year.

“Unfortunately, several setbacks in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic make necessary the difficult decision to cancel Hamvention 2021,” a January 11 announcement from the Hamvention Executive Committee said.  Sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association (DARA), Hamvention was set to take place May 21 – 23 in Xenia, Ohio.

“Hundreds of volunteers have been working to do everything necessary to bring this Hamvention to the many amateur radio enthusiasts and vendors who support the Dayton Hamvention. Vaccine distribution both in the United States and around the world is lagging behind what was planned. In addition, the emergence of a more communicable form of the COVID-19 virus increases the potential for further public health problems in the next few months. We make this difficult decision for the safety of our guests and vendors. Those who had their tickets deferred last year will be deferred again.”

The committee said the show would return in 2022 and hinted at a QSO party for Hamvention weekend. In November, Hamvention had announced that “The Gathering” would be the theme for the 2021 show.

Hamvention is the largest annual amateur radio gathering in the US and was host of the ARRL National Convention in 2019. The ARRL Hamfest and Convention Calendar includes a searchable database that includes other canceled in-person events.

New Amateur VLF Transatlantic Record Set

Tue, 01/12/2021 - 08:01

Very low frequency (VLF) enthusiast Joe Craig, VO1NA, reports that Stefan Schaefer, DK7FC, copied his 50-character message transmitted from Newfoundland on 8.271 kHz, with a radiated power of 10 mW.

“This is a new record for amateur transatlantic VLF,” Craig told ARRL. “The mode used was EbNaut by Paul Nicholson. EbNaut is a synchronous coherent BPSK mode for use at VLF and low LF. Craig’s tower supports a VLF RL (rotated L) 10-meter (33 feet) average height and 100 meters (328 feet) long. VLF is the ITU designation for radio spectrum in the range of 3 – 30 kHz, corresponding to wavelengths from 100 to 10 kilometers, respectively.

“Since VLF waves can penetrate at least 40 meters (131 feet) into saltwater, they are used for military communication with submarines,” Craig noted.
