Mail Delivery Problem Affecting Delivery of Board Election Ballots in West Gulf Division

ARRL Puerto Rico Section and Red Cross Renew Memorandum of Understanding

QRZ Now - Wed, 10/16/2019 - 09:46

The American Red Cross Puerto Rico Chapter renewed its Memorandum of Understanding with the ARRL Puerto Rico Section on October 10, citing mutually beneficial experiences during recent emergency and disaster responses, especially to hurricanes Irma and María in 2017. María left the island without power and telecommunications, and the Red Cross in the US asked ARRL to help provide Amateur Radio volunteers — which became the “Force of Fifty.” The initial MoU was signed on March 3, 2017. As part of the renewed MoU, radio amateurs will help with the development of the Red Cross internal UHF communication system.

“The Red Cross had a good and excellent synergistic relationship with the Amateur Radio community when communications were lost for 6 weeks during the María event,” ARRL Puerto Rico Section Manager Oscar Resto, KP4RF, said. “As recently as the end of August, amateur operators were standing by for the possible pass of Hurricane Dorian as the Red Cross made the call for possible activation.”

ARRL Puerto Rico Section Public Information Officer Angel Santana, WP3GW, recounted events over the past 2 years following the devastating impact of the 2017 hurricanes on the lives of Puerto Rico’s residents. He said many new Amateur Radio operators have been licensed, most with a special interest in emergency communications, and a special class and exam session at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagüez graduated new amateurs as part of a new program to develop an emergency communications system. Santana noted that new amateurs mean more net participation. Puerto Rico Section Technical Coordinator Carlos Roig WP4AOH, gives tech training talks on local nets, providing tips on emergency communication practice, Go-Kits, antennas, radios, and portable power sources, in addition to answering questions on numerous other topics.

Amateurs in municipal emergency management agencies now run drills/nets every first Sunday of the month based on the 12 zones of the Puerto Rico Emergency Management Bureau (PREMB) administration. A faith-based organization has developed the Radio Communications Emergency Net on the island of Vieques, with Amateur Radio serving as the principal resource.

Santana noted that the Commonwealth’s new governor, Wanda Vázquez Garced, has raised her administration’s visibility of Amateur Radio as an emergency/disaster response communication asset. — Thanks to ARRL Puerto Rico Section Public Information Coordinator Angel Santana, WP3GW

Report Causes Concern and Confusion in California’s Amateur Radio Ranks

By all credible and reliable accounts, the State of California has not turned its back on Amateur Radio as an emergency communication resource nor have established repeater owners been asked to remove their equipment from state-owned sites unless they pay sizeable fees. The California controversy, inflamed by a viral YouTube video, stemmed from a California Department of Forestry and Fire Prote...

PACTOR Developer SCS Announces Monitoring Software

QRZ Now - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 12:23

SCS, the company that created PACTOR, has unveiled software that offers the ability to monitor the content of PACTOR 1, 2, and 3 transmissions over the air. The free PMON software runs under the Linux operating system. A software version to monitor PACTOR 4 is scheduled to become available next year. PMON will offer “thorough observation and documentation of all presently available PACTOR 1, 2, and 3 transmissions,” SCS said.

PMON covers all PACTOR levels with the appropriate speed levels and packet variations,” SCS said. “PMON will read in parallel PACTOR 2 and PACTOR 1. The very wide receiving range (frequency offset ±200 Hz), as well as automatic sideband recognition, ease routine operation of PMON with PACTOR 2 and PACTOR 3 considerably.”

According to SCS, only minimal hardware is required to use PMON. The equipment complement includes a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (minimum) computer and a USB sound device. SCS noted in an October 11 news release that all SCS PACTOR hardware modems include a command to allow PACTOR monitoring on the fly. The German company says PMON now makes this possible without a modem and adds the ability to decode B2F/LZHUF-compressed messages — Winlink email and others.

“This exciting new software development for Raspberry Pi complements and surpasses previously released SCS software that leveraged PACTOR modems’ ability to monitor PACTOR to read Winlink for meaning,” SCS said. The company also said the new software permits modem-less monitoring of all kinds, something that would be useful for monitoring Winlink email traffic.

The Winlink Development Team called the new software a “welcome contribution to the Amateur Radio community.”

The issue of message encryption arose in recent months with respect to renewed attention to ARRL’s so-called “symbol rate” petition for rulemaking (RM-11708) and the accommodation of automatically controlled digital stations (ACDS) — many of which employ Winlink. Some commenters on ARRL’s petition expressed concerns that PACTOR message encryption was a violation of FCC Amateur Service rules.

Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network Employed to Monitor California Wildfires

QRZ Now - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 12:18

Two separate groups took advantage of the Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN) to monitor wildfires in California.

The Mariposa Area Amateur Radio Organization (MAARO) used the Amateur Radio mesh to stream — via microwave — video from the Briceburg Fire near Yosemite National Park.

The Pleasant Valley Amateur Radio Club (PVARC) employed the AREDN mesh to stream video from the Saddle Ridge Fire near Los Angeles from a repeater site overlooking San Fernando Valley.

The Briceburg and Saddle Ridge fires are now under control, but archived streams are still available. This is the same network that was used to stream video from the Thomas and Woolsey fires in 2017 and 2018, respectively. — Thanks to Ben Kuo, AI6YR
