Amateur Radio Roundtable, Subject: More Kits and Hamfest Reports

Amateur Radio Roundtable

Subject: More Kits and Hamfest Reports

This week’s W5KUB.com show (November 10th) will feature Joe Eisenberg, K0NEB who will discuss kits that are becoming very popular with the amateur radio community. Joe will also provide a report on several recent hamfests which he attended.
Please send your FCC related questions to Riley Hollingsworth, K4ZDH, at AskRiley@w5kub.com. He will answer your questions on a future webcast, and in some cases, he may just call you on the phone if you leave a number.   Riley retired from the FCC’s Compliance and Information Bureau as Legal Adviser for Enforcement Program.

Amateur Radio Roundtable is a live weekly amateur radio webcast, held every Tuesday night at 8 PM CT (0200 UTC Wednesday) at  W5KUB.com.  The show covers a wide range of topics for ham radio operators and electronic hobbyists; including balloon launches, satellite, go-kits, emergency communications, SDR, digital modes, DXing, home brewing, hamfest updates, and more.  Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions via the chat room or telephone.

Webcast Enhancements

As requested by viewers, the main video has been converted from Flash to HTML5!  Below the chat room section, there are two blue buttons to pop out chat.  if you want the chat to float, select “Pop Out This Chat" before logging in. If you also want to use the HTML5 chat room, select “Alternate HTML5 Chat". Popping out or floating the chat room will allow you to resize it, move it around on the screen, and even place it on a second computer monitor.
Mobile users must select “Alternate HTML5 Chat" to access the chat room.

“Back Up Video Server" has been converted to YouTube video which some viewers prefer. Both video servers provide the same show and chat room.  A nice feature on the YouTube backup video is the ability to scroll back and forth through the live video.  If a viewer missed something, they can just slide the play timeline back to see what they missed!

All of our shows are usually recorded and placed on YouTube’s W5KUB channel by the next day.

We need your help.  If you use Twitter, please send out a tweet 15 minutes before the show or retweet our announcement. I suggest something like “live #hamradio show starts in 15 mins on w5kub.com 8 PM CT".  This should help build our viewer base.

Towards the end of each show, we provide a link and viewers who have a camera, microphone, and a Google+ account, can join the show. Your video and audio will be on the webcast.  This part of the show is very informal and up to 10 people can join. We talk about anything the viewers want to discuss.

We would like to share pictures of your ham shack on the webcast. Send a picture of your ham shack with a description and we will feature your shack pictures on the show.  In fact, if you give us your permission, your shack could be used as the background of that week’s webcast!

If you have a specific subject idea for a future show, send an email to tom@w5kub.com.

Forward this message to a Friend will allow you to share this message with your friends.

Join us for fun and interesting discussions!

AO-85 Testing November 8 and 9

 

*Summary of AO-85 testing:*

 

* Please do not try to uplink to AO-85 during the following times

(all of which occur while AO-85 is over North America) even though

the transponder will be active and you may hear activity.

 

*Sunday November 8, 15:35 through 15:55 UTC* *Sunday November 8, 17:15 through 17:35 UTC* *Monday November 9, 00:05 through 00:25 UTC* *Monday November 9, 01:45 through 02:10 UTC*

 

All dates and times are UTC, all passes are Sunday local time in North America. Stations in North, Central, and northern South America are asked to comply.

 

You are encouraged to copy telemetry with FoxTelem during these times to forward to the server to help us analyze the test results.

 

*Details of this AO-85 testing:*

 

Sunday, November 8 and into early Monday, November 9 (UTC) the Fox-1 Engineering Team will be testing the COR (carrier operated relay) mode of AO-85. COR is the backup to the IHU failing, if IHU fails AO-

85 should continue operating as a simple COR repeater with no CTCSS necessary as long as there is power. In COR mode no telemetry or voice ID is present because those are generated by the IHU.

 

Orbit 443 ascending, at approximately 15:35 UTC over North America we will test a telemetry high/low reset command. Following the command look for Ground Resets = 2 in the Computer window of FoxTelem. Once that is confirmed, we will command the IHU OFF on the same pass.

 

Please keep the uplink clear in order to help us test and monitor the telemetry.

 

Orbit 444 ascending, at approximately 17:15 UTC over North America AMSAT command and engineering stations will test the COR mode on the air to observe performance. Please keep the uplink clear so that we may test without interference, to expedite the testing and allow for good measurements. We may command IHU ON during the pass in order to observe battery voltage in the telemetry. Please have FoxTelem running even if there is no telemetry seen, it may turn on at any time during this pass.

 

Orbit 448 descending, at approximately 00:05 UTC Monday over North America we will command AO-85 IHU ON. Please keep the uplink clear in order to help us test and monitor the telemetry after the IHU is turned on.

 

Orbit 449 descending, at approximately 01:45 UTC Monday over North America if we were unable to command IHU ON on orbit 448, we will attempt to command again. Please keep the uplink clear in order to help us test and monitor the telemetry after the IHU is turned on.

 

During the testing stations outside North, Central and northern South America are invited to use the COR repeater mode and share your assessment of AO-85 receive sensitivity and audio on amsat-bb.

Stations in North, Central, and northern South America may use the COR repeater on orbits 445 through 447 and are also invited to share your assessment of AO-85 receive sensitivity and audio on amsat-bb.

 

Please share this widely to help reach everyone who may be operating AO-85.

 

The AO-85 team thanks you for your support.

US Radio Amateurs Back in Space and SA AMSAT Kletskous Update

 

The launch of the Fox 1A CubeSat on 8 October 2015 marked the return of satellites built by AMSAT North America (Amateur Radio Satellite Corporation). US amateurs were the first to build and launch satellites just a few years after the Russians stunned the world with Sputnik 1 in 1957. For several decades they led the pack and built bigger and better satellite. That that came to an end some five years ago when free rides into space dried up.

 

AMSAT had to refocus its activities and look at CubeSat as the best alternative possible option as free and more affordable launches became available. One of the options is the NASA ELaNa program.

NASA and the Launch Services Program are partnering with several universities to launch small research satellites. These missions provide NASA with valuable opportunities to test emerging technologies and economical commercial off-the-shelf components that may be useful in future space missions. NASA nanosatellites are designed for a wide spectrum of space missions, including biology experiments, testing advanced propulsion and communications technologies.

 

CubeSats are only 10 x 10 x 10 cm and weigh under 1,3 kg. NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida has adapted the Poly-Picosatellite Orbital Deployer (PPOD) to put these CubeSats into orbit. This deployment system was designed and is manufactured by the California Polytechnic State University in partnership with Stanford University.

 

Fox-1A was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base as part of the ELaNa-XII group of satellites. In addition, Fox-1C and Fox-1D are now scheduled to fly together under contract with Spaceflight, which is expected to launch in first quarter 2016. Fox 1B also known as RadFXSat has been assigned a launch that is currently expected to take place in November 2016 from Vandenberg Air Force Base as part of ELaNa-XIV.

 

“The next 14 months will be rewarding ones for our volunteers, who spent countless hours designing, documenting, collaborating, fabricating, testing and integrating ourFox-1 design into flight hardware,” AMSAT president Barry Baines said. “These satellites will be used by radio amateurs, students, and scientists who will benefit from amateur radio capabilities on board, educational opportunities that our spacecraft can provide to the classroom, and the scientific data that will be available from payloads on board provided by university students and faculties,” he said.

 

Organizationally, AMSAT has benefited tremendously from the Fox-1 program as it provides the basis for training anew generation of satellite builders who are now seasoned veterans, capable of tackling more complex and challenging projects.

 

“AMSAT’s reputation as a satellite innovator is enhanced as the Fox-1 design allows seamless integration of scientific payloads that can benefit from a reliable communications downlink capable of low speed and high speed data transmissions,” Baines said.

 

Fox-1A is the first FM repeater satellite in a 1U CubeSat form factor, capable of sending low speed telemetry as well as payload data while the FM repeater is in normal amateur service.

 

Fox-1B will fly with the Vanderbilt University radiation experiments expected in 2016. Fox-1C will launch on Spaceflight’s maiden mission of the SHERPA multi-cubesat deployer planned for the 1st quarter of 2016. U- and L-band uplinks with the VHF band downlink will be available. Fox-1D will launch with Fox-1C. It will include the University of Iowa HERCI experiment. IA Virginia Tech camera will also be included. U- and L- band uplinks with the VHF band downlink will be available. Fox-1E “Evolution” will carry a Mode J linear transponder. The transponder is planned to be 30 kHz wide and will also have a 1200 bps BPSK telemetry beacon.

 

South African AMSAT’s (SA AMSAT) CubeSat, named Kletskous

(chatterbox) is making good progress with the third generation space frame to be completed before the end of the year. Good progress is being made with all the subsystems and it is expected that by the end of February 2016, a breadboard layout will be tested. The breadboard layout is also referred to as flatsat as all the subsystems are wired together on the test bench and tested as a fully operational satellite.

 

SA AMSAT is also planning to include experimental projects and is inviting high school learners and tertiary education students to submit proposals for their science project to be included in Kletskous and make use of the transponder facilities to have the data of their projects downloaded as part of the telemetry stream. Because of the size of a CubeSat and the limited power budget available, proposals must be for projects which have few components and require little power.

 

For more details about Kletskous visit

www.amsatsa.org.za.

Proposals should be submitted to saamsat@intekom.co.za and reach the Kletskous team by 28 February 2016.

SAREX Reflector Has Been Shut Down

 

As previously announced the SAREX Reflector was shut down November 1. What follows is Frank Bauer’s KA3HDO, AMSAT V.P. for Human Spaceflight Programs and the ARISS International Chair, final comments to the SAREX Reflector.

 

“SAREX Reflector Participants:

 

As previously announced, on November 1, 2015 we are shutting down the SAREX Reflector for future message postings.  This posting represents the SAREX reflector’s last message.

 

It is not clear when the SAREX reflector was first started, but from a query to Paul Williamson, who started all the AMSAT reflectors, it has been in operation since at least 1992.

 

Over the years, many of you have used this forum to gather and share information on our “frequent flyer” SAREX missions on the Shuttle, our operations on the Space Station Mir and, since 2000, our operations on ISS.  But times have changed since the early 1990s.

For starters, we have moved from the SAREX activities on the Shuttle to ARISS on the International Space Station.  AMSAT, ARRL and the ARISS international team of volunteers have also transitioned our ARISS communications to you and are providing you many ways to get information on ARISS.  This includes the ARISS Web Site www.ariss.org, the ISS Fan Club web site www.issfanclub.com and the AMSAT web site, www.amsat.org.  The ARISS team noticed that many on the AMSAT BB reflector were not seeing late-breaking opportunities for ARISS connections (School, SSTV, QSOs) unless these messages were cross-posted between SAREX and BB.  So the decision was made by me to move all the SAREX real-time traffic over to BB and to end the SAREX reflector postings on this date.

 

Before we hit “send” and closeout this reflector, I encourage you to sign up and continue to get these messages on AMSAT-BB.  If you feel there is too much traffic on BB, you can always sign up for the digest mode, which combines many messages and sends them out periodically (usually daily).  And don’t forget that the SAREX archives will still be available on the AMSAT web site, so you can research past messages.

 

On behalf of AMSAT-NA and the ARISS International Team, I want to thank you for your sustained participation in this phenomenal amateur radio human spaceflight journey.  Moreover, we look forward to your further participation and volunteer support in the future.

 

While there are many ARISS volunteers to thank for their outstanding support, I want to send a particular shout out to Charlie Sufana, AJ9N, who has provided all SAREX reflector participants frequent updates on ARISS status.  Thanks Charlie!

 

As I close this final e-mail, I want to announce that over the next couple months, ARISS will be celebrating its 15ths anniversary of continuous operations on the ISS, starting with November 13, 2015 when we conducted our first ham radio contacts on ISS and on December 21, 2000 when we conducted our first school contact with the Burbank School in Burbank, Illinois.  Stay tuned on BB and our web site for ham radio activities that we will be conducting over the year to commemorate these historic events.

 

73,

ISS Astronauts Link-Up with ITU WRC-15 in Geneva

 

The ITU World Radiocommunication Conference 2015 (WRC-15) is taking place in Geneva from November 2-27. On Tuesday, November 3 at 1241 UT there was an amateur radio link-up between WRC-15 and two astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS).

 

The contact took place using the permanent amateur radio station at the ITU. The station’s normal call sign is 4U1ITU but during the conference the special call sign 4U1WRC is being used.

 

Students from Institut Florimont were able to use the ITU station to talk to astronauts Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS and Kimiya Yui KG5BPH who were using the  amateur radio station in the ISS Columbus module, call sign OR4ISS.

 

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) program established the first permanent amateur radio presence in space 15 years ago. The inaugural ARISS contact took place on December 21, 2000, between a member of the ISS Expedition 1 crew and youngsters at Luther Burbank Elementary School near Chicago. Several pupils and a teacher got to chat using amateur radio with “Space Station Alpha”

Commander William “Shep” Shepherd KD5GSL.

The ARISS program lets students worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station, inspiring them to pursue interests in careers in science, technology, engineering and math, and engaging them with radio science technology through amateur radio.

Help Wanted Astronauts

 

NASA Press Release: Job Openings for Astronauts

 

In anticipation of returning human spaceflight launches to American soil, and in preparation for the agency’s journey to Mars, NASA announced it will soon begin accepting applications for the next class of astronaut candidates. With more human spacecraft in development in the United States today than at any other time in history, future astronauts will launch once again from the Space Coast of Florida on American-made commercial spacecraft, and carry out deep-space exploration missions that will advance a future human mission to Mars.

 

The agency will accept applications from Dec. 14 through mid- February and expects to announce candidates selected in mid-2017.

Applications for consideration as a NASA Astronaut will be accepted

at:

 

http://www.usajobs.gov

 

The next class of astronauts may fly on any of four different U.S.

vessels during their careers: the International Space Station, two commercial crew spacecraft currently in development by U.S.

companies, and NASA’s Orion deep-space exploration vehicle.

 

From pilots and engineers, to scientists and medical doctors, NASA selects qualified astronaut candidates from a diverse pool of U.S.

citizens with a wide variety of backgrounds.

 

“This next group of American space explorers will inspire the Mars generation to reach for new heights, and help us realize the goal of putting boot prints on the Red Planet," said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “Those selected for this service will fly on U.S.

made spacecraft from American soil, advance critical science and research aboard the International Space Station, and help push the boundaries of technology in the proving ground of deep space."

 

The space agency is guiding an unprecedented transition to commercial spacecraft for crew and cargo transport to the space station. Flights in Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon will facilitate adding a seventh crew member to each station mission, effectively doubling the amount of time astronauts will be able to devote to research in space.

 

Future station crew members will continue the vital work advanced during the last 15 years of continuous human habitation aboard the orbiting laboratory, expanding scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies. This work will include building on the regular six- month missions and this year’s one-year mission, currently underway aboard the station, which is striving for research breakthroughs not possible on Earth that will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space.

 

In addition, NASA’s Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft, now in development, will launch astronauts on missions to the proving ground of lunar orbit where NASA will learn to conduct complex operations in a deep space environment before moving on to longer duration missions on its journey to Mars.

 

“This is an exciting time to be a part of America’s human space flight program," said Brian Kelly, director of Flight Operations at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. “NASA has taken the next step in the evolution of our nation’s human spaceflight program – and our U.S. astronauts will be at the forefront of these new and challenging space flight missions. We encourage all qualified applicants to learn more about the opportunities for astronauts at NASA and apply to join our flight operations team."

 

To date, NASA has selected more than 300 astronauts to fly on its increasingly challenging missions to explore space and benefit life on Earth. There are 47 astronauts in the active astronaut corps, and more will be needed to crew future missions to the space station and destinations in deep space.

 

Astronaut candidates must have earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics. An advanced degree is desirable. Candidates also must have at least three years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot- in-command time in jet aircraft. Astronaut candidates must pass the NASA long-duration spaceflight physical.

QB50 project 2016

 

As reported to the AMSAT-BB, Mineo Wakita JE9PEL informs us “For the purpose of the demonstration and development of CubeSats of the technology of the universities around the world, it is scheduled to be launched all 50 satellites by Ukraine Tsiklon-4 rocket on February 1, 2016. There are still also uncertainties, but I, JE9PEL investigated the current frequencies and summarized it in an Excel file. I’m going to issue in the future this revised version."

BRICSAT-1 recovery challenge

 

If anyone has 9600 baud satellite capability and is looking for a challenge, you could be successful in recovering BRICSAT (NO83).

BRICSAT simply has a negative power budget.  When it wakes up, it should be possible to get in the command to tell it to turn off unnecessary loads and then let it achieve full recovery.  As is, it wakes up, sends a few feeble 20 second packets and dies again.

 

Bricsat has another excellent PSK31 transpodner on it too.  You can detect BRICSAT when it awakes by the 20 second packet on the downlink OR by the occasional PSK31 beacon on 435.350 MHz (+/- Doppler).  Do not be confused by PSAT which also has a PSK31 tranpsonder on the same frequency.  But they have different audio tones for the beacon.

 

> Downlink: 437.975 MHz, 9600 baud

> Uplink: 145.825 MHz, 9600 baud

> Latest “guess” at the TLE (not sure if this is BRICSat)

> 1 90722U          15294.38156592 +.00051032 +00000-0 +11686-2 0 0166

> 2 90722 054.9895 030.6075 0226665 199.3544 159.8861 15.1979213102332

 

The commands are simple keyboard dumb terminal commands.

If you think  you want to take on this challenge, contact us.

Hawaii Launch of Satellites Carrying Amateur Radio Payloads Fails

 

The November 4 inaugural launch of an experimental US military vehicle carrying several satellites with Amateur Radio payloads into orbit failed in mid-flight shortly after taking off at 0345 UTC from Hawaii. The experimental Super Strypi launch vehicle, carrying a collection of small satellites into orbit as part of the ORS-4 mission for the Department of Defense, was fired from a truss-mounted rail system from the Pacific Missile Range Facility, off Barking Sands on Kauai. According to Spaceflightnow.com, the Super Strypi rocket is designed for low-cost, quick-reaction satellite launches.

Destroyed in the demonstration flight were 13 small research spacecraft clustered on the mission for NASA researchers and university students.

 

None of the satellites carried Amateur Radio transponders, but several were equipped to transmit beacon signals and telemetry on 2 meter, 70 centimeter, and 13 centimeter amateur frequencies. The satellites lost included Argus, EDSN, HawaiiSat-1, ORS-Squared, PrintSat, STACEM, STU-1, and Supernova-Beta. PrintSat carried a 3D printed structure and was designed to measure the performance of the material over the course of its 3 year mission.

 

Spaceflightnow.com said the experimental launcher apparently lost control and broke up downrange from the launch site. The November 4 maiden flight took place following several delays. The test flight was one of two planned demonstrations of the launcher.

Duchifat 1 status update

We’re happy to report that the satellite is still operational and doing
very well.
We’ve already received 20 stations using Duchifat 1, and all said stations
are displayed on our map at
www.h-space-lab.org .
QSL cards are on their way, and a few have already been received.
It’s a fantastic experience to be heard by the satellite, get immediate
digipeating response from it, and later see your position on the map on
the website, after a successful dump at our GS from the satellite.
If you try to contact it and encounter any difficulty, please don’t
hesitate to write to us at
4X4HSC@gmail.com
It’s all very fun. We also hope people can share their experiences here.
73, and good luck.

UKube-1 CubeSat Completes Mission

UKube-1, the UK Space Agency’s first national spacecraft, has now completed
its nominal mission following over 14 months of operations. Discussion is
underway with AMSAT-UK about the possibility of taking over UKube-1 operations
to continue its educational and outreach activities.

Launched in July 2014, UKube-1 is a technology demonstration mission with a
broad set of objectives aimed at attracting and training future generations of
engineers, encouraging collaboration across sectors and institutions, fast
tracking space technology development and engaging with students.

As a 3 unit CubeSat (30x30x10cm), flying 4 main payloads, with all the key
subsystems of much larger satellites, UKube-1 remains one of the most advanced
CubeSats ever built. Despite some technical challenges in orbit, the mission
has achieved a range of milestones including:

• delivery into the correct planned orbit (around 650km, sun-synchronous)
• successful deployment of solar panels and antenna
• good battery health
• slow spin rate measured
• uplink and downlink capabilities checked, including Large Data Transfer,
downlink at 3 speeds, and redundant communications mode
• all core payloads commissioned and data collected for each
• on-board camera technology successfully tested
• data downlinked from multiple ground stations across the globe

UKube-1 has also helped maintain the UK’s leading position in the CubeSat
sector. Participation in the mission placed Clyde Space in an excellent
position to capitalize on the fast growing global nanosatellite market. The
company has experienced 100% year on year growth, both in turnover and
employees, as a direct result from involvement in UKube-1, and is firmly
established as a global leader.

Mark McCrum, Bright Ascension Ltd, said:
“UKube-1 provided us with an invaluable opportunity to gain flight heritage
for our software technology and to get deeply involved in the operation of a
complex CubeSat mission. It gave a huge boost to our credibility as a space
software provider and has been instrumental in winning further work.”

Craig Clark, CEO Clyde Space Ltd, said:
“UKube-1 represents a pivotal achievement in the development and growth of
Clyde Space. The project moved the company from being a spacecraft subsystems
supplier to providing full missions for our customers. To give some context to
the extent that Ukube-1 has had to our business, Clyde Space has more than
quadrupled in size in the last 3 years and there are currently over 60 CubeSats
planned through production here in Glasgow over the next 18 months. The return
on investment for Ukube-1 in terms of jobs and export sales for the UK has been
outstanding and is a great example of industry and the UK Space Agency working
together to put the UK at the forefront of global space technology.”

Professor Andrew Holland, Open University, added:
“Involvement in the UKube-1 mission, though our C3D instrument, has had a
positive effect on our research and technology program within the Space
Instrumentation Group at the Open University, as well as a positive effect on
our technology partners in the project; XCAM Ltd and e2v Ltd. The project has
helped the OU to build a new strand of instrument development within the group,
raised awareness of the CubeSat platform as a potential vehicle to accelerate
the development of scientific space instrumentation, and has provided early in-
orbit-demonstration of technologies. The mission introduced us to new academic
and industrial collaborators operating in the space sector and supported the
career development of the young engineers and scientists working on the
project.”

STFC’s RAL Space provided the Ground Station for the mission at Chilbolton
Observatory in Hampshire UK, and UKube-1 operations were commanded from there.

Mission Manager Dr Helen Walker said:
“It has been a very exciting time, made possible only with the great support
from all the teams involved.”

Although the Agency-supported mission phase has ended, discussion is underway
with AMSAT-UK about the possibility of taking over UKube-1 operations to
continue its educational and outreach activities until the satellite orbit
naturally degrades.

UKube-1 carries a set of AMSAT-UK FUNcube boards which provide an educational
beacon for use by schools and a linear transponder for amateur radio
communications.

UKube-1 nominal frequencies:
• 145.840 MHz Telemetry downlink
• 145.915 MHz FUNcube subsystem beacon
• 400 mW inverting SSB/CW linear transponder

Fort Worth students talk to ISS

Students at Daggett Montessori School in Fort Worth used amateur radio to talk
to astronaut Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS, aboard the International Space Station.

Before the contact Cowtown Amateur Radio Club member Keith Pugh W5IU explained
to the students how they are able to talk to the ISS.

The contact, which took place on Thursday, October 29, gave the students the
opportunity to ask questions about life in space. The Star-Telegram newspaper
reports Grace Jordan, a seventh-grader, wondered about the effects of
microgravity on food digestion.

Kjell used the amateur radio station in the ESA ISS Columbus module callsign
NA1SS, while the students used the station K5COW set up by Cowtown Amateur
Radio Club in the school auditorium.

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) lets students
worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of
the International Space Station, inspiring them to pursue interests in careers
in science, technology, engineering and math, and engaging them with radio
science technology through amateur radio.

Tim Peake KG5BVI and the ISS Astro Pi’s

AMSAT-UK members are leading on the Amateur Radio on the ISS (ARISS) Schools
contacts program for the upcoming Tim Peake Principia mission to the ISS. A
number of high profile school contacts are planned to be carried out and this
activity is being coordinated with the UK Space Agency as part of the overall
Principia Educational Outreach program.

Two specially augmented Raspberry Pi’s called Astro Pi‘s are planned to fly on
an Orbital Sciences’ Cygnus cargo freighter to the ISS in early December. They
will be used by UK astronaut Tim Peake KG5BVI during his Principia mission on
the Space Station which is expected to commence in mid-December.

The Astro Pi’s are planned to run experimental Python programs written by
young people in schools across the country; the results will be returned back
to Earth at the end of the mission. ARISS/AMSAT-UK members are actively
involved in discussions with the UK Space Agency, ESA, the Raspberry Pi
Foundation and others to establish the feasibility of re-purposing one of the
Astro Pi units, either within or post Tim Peake’s mission, to provide an
alternative video source for the amateur radio HamTV transmitter in the ISS
Columbus module. Additional discussions are ongoing with all parties for joint
educational activities into the future with the Astro Pi units being networked
and potentially enhancing the capability of the amateur radio station on board
Columbus.

The main mission of HamTV is to perform contacts between the astronauts on the
ISS and school students, not only by voice as now, but also by unidirectional
video from the ISS to the ground. ARISS has been working with Goonhilly and
hope to provide a video download facility via one of their large dishes for the
schools contacts as well as attempting to receive the video at each school as
part of the contact.

Radio amateurs to help London children talk to ISS

On Wednesday, November 4 pupils at the Eleanor Palmer Primary School in
Camden, London should have the opportunity to speak to an astronaut in space
thanks to an Amateur Radio Telebridge link via Australia. The audio will be
streamed via the web and Echolink.

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at Eleanor Palmer School, London, United Kingdom on Wednesday,
November 4. The event is scheduled to begin at approximately 09:51 GMT. It is
recommended that you start listening approximately 10 minutes before this time.
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds.

The contact will be a telebridge between astronaut Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS,
using the callsign NA1SS from the amateur radio station in the ISS Columbus
module, and Martin Diggens VK6MJ in Western Australia. The contact should be
audible over portions of Australia and adjacent areas.  Interested participants
are invited to listen in on the 145.800 MHz FM downlink.

Audio from this contact will be available via the amateur radio Echolink
system on node *AMSAT* (101377) and via the IRLP Node 9010 Discovery Reflector.

Streaming Audio will be able on the web at
https://sites.google.com/site/arissaudio/

Audio on Echolink and web stream is generally started around 20 minutes prior
to the contact taking place so that you can hear some of the preparation that
occurs. IRLP will begin just prior to the ground station call to the
ISS.

Contact times are approximate. If the ISS executes a reboost or other
manoeuvre, the AOS (Acquisition Of Signal) time may alter by a few minutes

Eleanor Palmer Primary School, a non-selective community school, is located in
central London in the United Kingdom. London is an exciting and dynamic capital
city and its schools are the best in the country, attributed to the social and
ethnic diversity, excellent local leadership and the quality of teaching.

Eleanor Palmer is a relatively small school of around 220 pupils with single
classes of 30 children per year. The youngest pupils are 3 years old and the
oldest 11 years old. Due to the central London location it is a highly diverse
and inclusive school with staff and children from many different backgrounds.

The pupils achieve highly as judged by national benchmarks. One of the core
aims of the school is to inspire in all pupils a love of learning and the
desire to continue to learn and they therefore seek to provide a rich and broad
curriculum opening minds and creating opportunities. The school hope that their
contact with the ISS will inspire pupils to go on to learn more about space
through the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:

1.  What have you seen that is more beautiful than earth?

2.  Who or what inspired you to choose this job?

3.  Does being in space make you feel differently about earth?

4.  What can you learn from the ISS that you cannot learn on earth?

5.  Will normal people who are not astronauts be able to visit space in the
ISS one day?

6.  How do you sleep?

7.  Is it quiet up there in the ISS?

8.  When you get back to earth, do you have to re-train your muscles?

9.  Can you call home?

10.  Do you all have to be scientists?

11.  What do you think is the most important things children should know about
space?

12.  What time zone do you use?

13.  Do you have plants on the ISS?

14.  What has been your favourite experiment?

15.  How does your brain respond to micro gravity?

16.  How do you wash your clothes?

17.  If you cry in space, with laughter, what happens to your tears?

18.  What do you want to do when you come back to earth?

19.  How do you get enough oxygen?

20.  Is it more scary taking off from earth or returning to earth?

21.  What is your energy source on the ISS?

22.  What does it feel like to be in space?

23.  Is it always dark in space?

Successful Contacts

*   A direct contact via K5COW with students at Daggett Montessori School K-8,
Fort  Worth, Texas, USA, was successful Thu 2015-10-29 14:12:56 UTC 31 deg.
Astronaut Kjell Lindgren KO5MOS responded to 10 questions from students.

Watch a video recording of the contact at
http://youtu.be/CIsWPZ3TbWU

Daggett Montessori, a “School of Choice” within the Fort Worth Independent
School District, was created thirty years ago and was one of the first public
school Montessori programs in the nation. Based on the highly successful
Montessori methodology and philosophy, Daggett Montessori has approximately 500
students, all selected through a blind lottery system. We are a Title I school,
with close to 60% of our students economically disadvantaged.

As a kindergarten through eighth grade program, we provide a safe, nurturing
environment that focuses on long term relationships among staff, students, and
parents.  Our parents are actively involved in every aspect of school life.
Maria Montessori was the first woman to graduate from medical school in Italy
so science is an area of particular focus in the Montessori curriculum.  She
designed many of the lessons to instill a sense of awe about the natural world.
Our parents are very involved in every aspect of school at Daggett Montessori.
Of particular interest is our greenhouse with an aquaponics system in which we
raise various herbs and vegetables.  We also have multiple raised beds in which
the children grow vegetables.  Our parents provide gardening lessons on a
weekly basis.  Our students were very excited to learn that lettuce is being
grown on the ISS!

*   A direct contact  via  K8UTT with students at Dearborn Public Schools,
Dearborn, Michigan, USA was successful Tue  2015-10-27 16:01:59 UTC 57 deg.

Dearborn Public Schools is a public school district that serves a community in
suburban Detroit, MI. This school district is part of a growing, vibrant area
built upon quality education for nearly 19,600 students. Dearborn also has a
unique feature added to this growing, vibrant area. It is home to the largest
Arabic-speaking population outside of the Middle East. One out of every two
students learns English as a second language. These qualities help to form
Dearborn Public Schools into the exceptional and diverse community of learners
it is today!

Mary Varady, STEM Coordinator for the District has been working with local
Amateur Radio operators for almost a year to arrange the contact with the
International Space Station.  In the spring of 2015, Dearborn Public Schools
Media Tech Specialist Gordon Scannell, an Amateur Radio operator, presented the
details of the program to district teachers.  Varady has been working with
principals to provide lessons and other activities tied to the event.
Scannell, along with other Amateur Radio volunteers have spent countless hours
arranging the technical details for Tuesday’s event including such activities
as installing a large temporary antenna on the roof of the Berry Center.

Students will be able to ask questions of the ISS crew during their scheduled
time.  Varady received more than 2,000 questions from students across the
district and then had the daunting task of narrowing them down to only the
best. In total, 18 students in grades first through eighth had their questions
selected.  In addition, students across the district will be able to tune in
and watch as the students gathered in the lecture hall talk with the crew of
the International Space Station.

However, an ARISS contact encompasses more than just students asking questions
with the ISS crewmember. Additional components include student activities such
as class lessons about space research, the International Space Station, and
radio technology.  The ARISS contact is a “hands on” real world application of
the science, technology, engineering and math being taught in the classroom.

*   A direct contact via RA1AJN between cosmonaut Sergey Volkov RU3DIS and
students at “About Gagarin From Space: Ham Radio Session with the Members of

The West Michigan Aviation Academy is a tuition-free public charter high
school founded by Dick DeVos upon encouragement from wife, Betsy. Stemming from
their passion for both education and aviation, the school opened its doors in
the fall of 2010 and is located on the grounds of the Gerald R. Ford
International Airport.  Like other high schools, our curriculum includes core
subjects. But as an aviation-themed high school the curriculum at WMAA is
designed for students who have a passion for aviation and/or an interest in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics. (STEM)

The Aviation program includes training for the Private Pilot certificate in
the student’s senior year.  The school owns our own Cessna 172 that is provided
at direct operating costs to the students.  Although they must pay for the
flight training the total cost is much lower than renting at the local flight
school and ground instruction is provided for as part of their elective
classes.  Currently we have 11 students in the program and hope to have 18 by
the time of the contact.  We also try to get the kids out around the airport to
experience the many different job opportunities available in aviation.

The Robotics program includes FIRST robotics programs and many of our
competitors are taking both engineering and aviation classes.  Our engineering
program provides for instruction in aerospace, robotics and electronic fields.
We try to closely alley the Aviation and Engineering departments.

*   A direct contact via 8NØSDF with students at Saku Children’s Science Dome
for the Future, Saku City, Japan,  was successful Thu 2015-10-22 09:52:21 UTC

Japanese.
Yui answered 10 questions for students.

Watch a video of the interview at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl6fkE14Rrw

The Saku Children’s Science Dome for the Future is a science museum that was
founded in 2001. It has a variety of exhibits on earth science, space,
biotechnology, the environment and more. Some of the attractions that gain the
attention of the children are a life-size model of a dinosaur, a 170 seat
planetarium and a “mercury” display model presented by NASA. The center is
located near the birth place of Mr. Kimiya Yui. Mr. Yui himself has visited the

URGENCY AFTER EARTHQUAKE

Amateur radio operators in India are preparing to step in quickly to
provide help across the ravaged landscape in northeastern Afghanistan,
which suffered a deadly 7.5 magnitude earthquake on Monday, Oct. 26. The
tremors were so strong, in fact, they rumbled across Pakistan and north
India as well. The team of experienced rescue operators from the West
Bengal Radio Club is the same group to provide critical support during
operations after last spring’s quake in Nepal.

Ambarish Nag Biswas, the West Bengal club’s secretary, tells one
newspaper in India, QUOTE “Communication is key to running rescue
operations but in such cases, cellphone networks and services collapse.
Our job is to set up a parallel network."ENDQUOTE As of Wednesday, Oct.
28, the amateurs were awaiting the official OK from the Indian
government before departing for Kabul.

HAMS PREPPED FOR PATRICIA

[ANCHOR]: Amateur communications also played a paramount role in the
Americas, when the most powerful storm ever to hit the western
hemisphere struck the Pacific coast of Mexico a week ago. Amateur Radio
Newsline’s Jim Damron, N8TMW, has the details:

[JIM]: Amateur radio emergency frequencies are back to normal, although
it will take a while to recover from the flooding, downed trees and
other damage Hurricane Patricia inflicted last week in western Mexico.

Hams, however, did their part. Mexico’s amateur radio association, FMRE,
reported on Monday, Oct. 26, that the nation’s emergency net
frequencies, including 7.060 MHz, were finally clear of traffic that
responded to the weekend’s Category 5 hurricane. The National Hurricane
Center considered the storm the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded
in the western hemisphere.

Mexico’s National Emergency Net was activated as Patricia approached
land and winds ripped through the country at just below 200 miles an
hour. Emergency coordinators were at the ready, as were those in the
southwestern United States.

The hurricane coincided with an already intense time on the HF bands, as
the CQ WorldWide SSB DX Contest was getting under way. That prompted a
plea from the International Amateur Radio Union on Friday, Oct. 23 for
hams to keep the emergency frequency open, and prepare as well to clear
additional frequencies on both 40 and 80 meters if needed. The State of
Guanajuato Amateur Radio Association used social media, announcing on
its Facebook page where frequencies needed to be cleared on 80, 40 and
20 meters.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami had called the storm “potentially
catastrophic." It was finally downgraded on Saturday, Oct. 24. By
Monday, Oct. 26, storm-induced downpours had begun drenching much of the
Gulf Coast region and the South, as the now-weakened weather system made
its way east. In the end, tens of thousands had been evacuated in
Mexico, where the government reported an apparent death toll of zero.

For Amateur Radio Newsline, I’m Jim Damron, N8TMW, in Charleston, West
Virginia.

THE FOX RETURNS, SAREX MAKES AN EXIT

Speaking of things getting back to normal, the Fox-1A (AO-85)
Transponder is back in business. Launched on Oct. 8, it proved to be
popular immediately with radio amateurs, who made ample use of its
transponder until it was taken out of service for a period of testing
and evaluations on Oct. 19. It is back as of Friday, Oct. 23.
AMSAT Vice President for Engineering Jerry Buxton, N-ZERO-J-Y (N0JY)
reports that version 1.01 of the FoxTelem telemetry software is also
available as a patch release. The patch and the full FoxTelem program
are available in Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. Download of the
software are available at www.amsat.org

Meanwhile, AMSAT’S SAREX reflector will be closed as of Sunday, Nov. 1,
according to AMSAT Vice President for Human Spaceflight Frank Bauer,
KA3HDO. SAREX’s functions will be folded into the AMSAT-BB list.
Amateurs subscribed to both SAREX and AMSAT-BB need to take no action
but existing SAREX-only subscriptions will not automatically be carried
over.

PARADISE LOST?

Desecheo Island, 14 miles off the coast of Puerto Rico, has held a
longstanding spot on the radio amateur’s list of Most Wanted DXs. Part
of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s National Wildlife Refuge System,
the island, known to amateurs as KP5, has been a notable part of the
KP1-5 Project’s successful DXpeditions for years.

Now, it seems, the island is also most wanted by the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico. According to a published report, Puerto Rico’s House of
Representatives has approved two measures requesting the island’s
release from United States jurisdiction.

The news of the vote was reported in the Oct. 26 edition of the Puerto
Rican newspaper, El Nuevo Dia. Hernandez Lopez’s remarks to fellow
lawmakers, translated in the newspaper’s online story, say in part:
QUOTE"Our desire is to provide the additional space western area for
sightseeing, this time, environmental tourism that allows people to
enjoy the natural attractions."

The measures were approved in the House, 27-21. Puerto Rico’s Senate
will now consider the matter. As for the world’s DXers, they’ll be
listening too.

TEAMWORK FOR THE TRIBES

[ANCHOR}: A collective of groups and individuals specializing in helping
American Indians, Alaskan natives and other tribal people through
disasters and emergencies is meeting in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The focus will
be sharing tools, techniques and tactics to help respond to and manage a
crisis. The organization is called the Tribal Assistance Coordination
Group, and while the “A" in its name stands for assistance, on Thursday,
Nov. 5, it will also stand for Amateur Radio. Amateur Radio Newsline’s
Mike Askins, KE5CXP, gives us the details:

[MIKE]:
It takes more than 45 minutes to explain why amateur radio is such a
critical tool when disaster strikes and communication networks are down,
but Lloyd Colston, KC5FM, the ARRL’s Oklahoma Section Manager, is more
than up to the task. His 45-minute talk at the national Tribal
Assistance Coordination Group workshop in Tulsa will cover all the
essentials. Colston, who is also vice president of the Virtual Emergency
Management Association, as well as the Emergency Management director for
the City of Altus, Oklahoma, will explain how the Amateur Radio
Emergency Service, the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service, the
Military Auxiliary Radio Service, and SKYWARN can assist tribes when
disasters strike. And he will even touch on social media and its
complementary role.

Amateur radio will share the spotlight at the wide-ranging conference
with other emergency responders, including the Red Cross, FEMA,
FirstNet, the Department of Homeland Security and the Oklahoma
Inter-Tribal Emergency Management Council.
Steve “Sid" Caesar, NH7C, the chief of the division of emergency
management in the Bureau of Indian Affairs, told Amateur Radio Newsline
that amateur radio already enjoys an established presence at these
national workshops. But its role has largely been showcased through
informal meetings and on-site tabletop exercises. He said that Colston’s
talk on Thursday, Nov. 5 constitutes the first official, formal amateur
radio presentation at the national workshop. Caesar said: QUOTE"With the
inclusion of Amateur Radio … the intention was to raise awareness of the
capabilities of Amateur Radio, specifically with the federal, state,
Local, Tribal, NGO, and private sector partners. We hope that the
outreach to Tribes will increase the numbers of Amateur Radio operators
in Tribal communities, making for safer and better prepared Tribal
communities."ENDQUOTE
That’s certainly making the most of 45 minutes.

For Amateur Radio Newsline, I’m Mike Askins, KE5CXP, in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

CME: THIS IS ONLY A TEST BUT . . .

Imagine a massive coronal mass ejection and an equally massive impact on
the HF bands. A blackout, even. It’s only an exercise, but it could just
as easily happen, and between Nov. 7 and Nov. 10, hams will be dealing
with just that disaster scenario. The Military Auxiliary Radio System
will work with the Amateur Radio Emergency Service and Radio Amateur
Civil Emergency Service during a similated CME event, helping radio
operators train for a major CME and how to handle its impact on HF
propagation.

Army MARS Program Manager Paul English, WD8DBY, told the ARRL that the
exercise scenario will simulate a CME event and focus on actions that
radio operators should take prior to and following such an event.
English said some active duty military groups will join about 50
ARES/RACES affiliates for the drill, which will not only include a
blackout of the radio bands but infrastructure damage.
Radio amateurs, as well as ARES and RACES teams, can contact MARS if
they wish to participate. Emails can be directed to MARS at

AN OREGON CITY’S TOWERING ISSUE

The Brookings, Oregon City Council was poised to give its expected
approval of taller ham radio towers in the city’s residential
neighborhoods, but the definitive vote has instead been postponed.
The proposed ordinance permitting towers as tall as 70 feet was high on
the published agenda for lawmakers’ Monday, Oct. 26 meeting. But Joyce
Heffington, city recorder, told Amateur Radio Newsline in a recent phone
call, QUOTE"It was delayed until the council has an opportunity to
review a letter we received from a legal firm."ENDQUOTE
Area residents have raised objections to the ordinance allowing taller
towers, citing what they call safety and aesthetic reasons. City
Attorney Martha Rice has said previously, in published reports in the
Curry Coastal Pilot newspaper, that Oregon law doesn’t prohibit
communications towers simply because of their appearance.
The Council had recently given the measure its tentative approval.
Heffington said the formal vote will be placed back on the Council
agenda as soon as the city’s attorney has had a chance to review the
letter and report on it.

DICTIONARY WANTS TO FIND THE RIGHT WORDS
If you speak Afrikaans, the South African Radio League would like to
have a word or two with you. Actually, the league would like to have a
few hundred words or more with you. There’s a project underway to
compile an Afrikaans dictionary for those radio amateurs who speak the
language, and volunteers are needed to provide expertise and help
compile it.
Anyone wanting to help put the project together should email Etienne
Naude, ZS6EFN, at etienne@afrigrid.com

LOOKING UP TO “FUNFLIGHT"

Australia’s national FunFlight Day being held on Sunday, Nov. 8 reaches
out to disadvantaged kids by giving them wings to fly: Pilots and flying
clubs provide free flights and access to the planes for youngsters at
the event.

The Bendigo Amateur Radio and Electronics Club will also be putting kids
on the air – using radios instead of airplanes. They’re setting up an
amateur radio station at the Bendigo Flying Club and by tuning into 40
meters, other radio clubs will be connecting with the FunFlight station
and the kids.

NAMES IN THE NEWS

It’s not surprising that Larry Lambert, N-ZERO-L-L (N0LL), and Lance
Collister, W7GJ, might just believe in magic. The two are the latest to
qualify for the ARRL’s Fred Fish Memorial Award, an honor conferred on
amateurs who work and confirm all 488 Maidenhead grid squares in the 48
contiguous states – working them all on 6 meters. The award is named for
the late Fred Fish, W5FF. One of Fish’s accomplishments, before becoming
a Silent Key in April of 2010, was to make and confirm those 488
contacts himself. Collister and Lambert are the first since 2011 to
receive the 6-meter achievement award for duplicating the noted VHF
operator’s efforts on the so-called “Magic Band."

SPECTRUM SPECULATION

In the UK, Ofcom has announced plans to auction part of the radio
spectrum formerly used for ham radio. Their hope is that part of the
band could be utilized by ever-growing high-speed mobile broadband services.

The auction won’t happen until early 2016, and includes a total of
190MHz of high-capacity spectrum on 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz.

THE WORLD OF DX

Saty, JE1JKL, will be working the HF bands as 9M6NA from Labuan Island
between November 26 and 29th. He will also be active in the CQWW DX CW
Contest on November 28 and 29th as a Single- Op/All-Band entry. QSL via

Gary, K9AW, will be active as J6/K9AW from St. Lucia (NA-108) between
November 24th and December 7th and will also participate in the CQWW DX
CW Contest on November 28 and 29th). QSL via K9AW, direct or by the Bureau.

Bill, K-H-6-OH-OH (KH6OO), is celebrating his 60 years as a licensed
radio amateur by operating as T32DX from Kiritimati Island in East
Kiribati through November 3. He will be joined by his sons Will,
W-ZERO-Z-R-J (W0ZRJ) and John N-ZERO-P-J-V (N0PJV). They will work all
the bands from 10 meters to 40 meters on SSB, CW and RTTY.

Three Japanese operators are active from the island of Palau through
November 5. Their call signs are T88ZE, T88KK and T88SH and they will be
working all bands 160m to 6m on CW, SSB and RTTY.

KICKER: HAMS AGAINST HALLOWEEN HUMBUG

And finally, Happy Halloween. As spooky as the celebration can get
sometimes, hundreds of hams in New York are working with State Troopers
to make sure this late October holiday doesn’t turn into a real horror show.

The hams, along with citizens band radio operators, are volunteers in a
public-service project known as the Pumpkin Patrol. On the evenings of
Friday, Oct. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 31, they’ll hit the road to make sure
the pumpkins don’t.

Dispatching hams and citizens band operators in their personal vehicles,
the patrol and communications network, overseen by the state police,
hopes to ensure that pumpkins don’t have a ghost of a chance of being
tossed from any overpasses along the 570-mile-long New York State
Thruway. Members of the Liverpool Amateur Radio Club, the Madison-Oneida
Amateur Radio Club and the Rochester Amateur Radio Association are among
those providing volunteers. In fact, almost every county throughout New
York State has had hams involved.

The effort began in 1976 with a Montgomery County, New York woman who
was talking on her citizens band radio with a truck driver as a tossed
pumpkin shattered his window, injuring him. The state police have been
overseeing the effort since 1990.

Hopefully, the only thing smashing on Halloween Evening and Night will
be this effort’s success. Which only goes to prove that when you find
hams on the air, you won’t find pumpkins IN the air.

ARISS-US Proposal Deadline Approaching

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) Program
is seeking formal and informal education institutions and
organizations, individually or working together, to host an Amateur
Radio contact with a crew member on board the ISS. ARISS anticipates
that the contact would be held between July 1 and December 31, 2016.
Crew scheduling and ISS orbits will determine the exact contact
dates. To maximize these radio contact opportunities, ARISS is
looking for organizations that will draw large numbers of
participants and integrate the contact into a well-developed
education plan.

The deadline to submit a proposal is November 1, 2015.

The last of the information sessions will be offered Wednesday, September 30,
at 2300 UTC. Advance registration is necessary. E-mail ARISS (ariss@arrl.org) to
sign up.

More Information
Interested parties can find more information about the program at

2016 CubeSat Launch Initiative Opportunity

NASA has opened the next round of its CubeSat Launch Initiative to engage the
growing community of space enthusiasts that can contribute to NASA’s space
exploration goals.

The CubeSat Launch Initiative gives students, teachers and faculty a chance to
get hands-on flight hardware development experience in the process of designing,
building and operating small research satellites. The initiative also provides a
low-cost pathway to space for research in the areas of science, exploration,
technology development, education or operations consistent with NASA’s Strategic
Plan.

Applicants must submit their proposals electronically by 4:30 p.m. EST, Nov. 24,
2015. NASA plans to select the payloads by Feb. 19, 2016, but selection does not
guarantee a launch opportunity. Selected experiments will fly as auxiliary
payloads on agency rocket launches or be deployed from the International Space
Station beginning in 2016 and running through 2019. NASA does not provide
funding for the development of the small satellites, and this opportunity is
open only to U.S. nonpro?t organizations and accredited educational
organizations.

For additional information about this opportunity and NASA’s CubeSat Launch
Initiative, visit

SAREX Reflector to be Closed 1 November 2015

At the request of the ARISS US Team, AMSAT-NA Vice President for Human
Spaceflight Frank Bauer, KA3HDO has announced that the SAREX reflector will be
closed 1 November 2015, and its functions folded into the AMSAT-BB list. Frank
explained that at one time operations from the Space Shuttle and the ISS were
considered as sufficiently different from other satellite operations as to need
separate forums for their respective interest communities. More recently,
changes in the human spaceflight operations, the new generation of satellites,
and the interests of the general AMSAT community have removed the reasons for
this distinction.

What does this mean to the current subscribers? If you are subscribed to both
SAREX and AMSAT-BB, there is no need to take any action. You will cease to
receive new postings on the SAREX list 1 November 2015, which will now be made
on AMSAT-BB. The SAREX archives will continue to be available for historical
purposes. If you are not subscribed to AMSAT-BB and wish to continue to receive
human spaceflight announcements, please go to
http://www.amsat.org/mailman/listinfo and subscribe to AMSAT-BB. Your existing
SAREX subscription will not be automatically carried over since not everyone
will wish to do so.

Astro Pi Launch Changed

Two specially augmented Raspberry Pi’s called Astro Pi‘s were planned to fly
with UK astronaut Tim Peake KG5BVI to the International Space Station (ISS) on
December 15.

On the ISS the Astro Pi’s are planned to run experimental Python programs
written by school-age students; the results will be downloaded back to Earth and
made available online for all to see. It is hoped that subsequently one of them
will be used to provide a video source for the amateur radio HamTV transmitter
in the ISS Columbus module.

It appears the amount of cargo on Tim’s Soyuz flight was overbooked so the Astro

October 16, 2015 to follow in 5-4-3-2-1.

The following is a QST. American hams prepare for a historic partnership
with hams in Havana. The Pope Francis Special Event stations count tens
of thousands of successful QSOs. The International Amateur Radio Union
presses governments to ease restrictions on amateurs’ antennas. And hams
in Nepal share how they assisted after April 25’s devastating
earthquake. All this and more in Amateur Radio Newsline report 1981

QSOs IN CUBA

[SKEETER]: The team of radio amateurs operating on Oct. 24 and 25 from
Havana, Cuba, under the call sign T42US, won’t just be another group of
competitors in the CQ World Wide SSB contest. They’re a historic
collective of radio ambassadors, a partnership of American and Cuban
hams whose joint effort symbolizes the newfound ease in relations
between the two nations. Jim Milner, WB2REM, is the U.S. team leader.
The Florida-based ham recently talked with Amateur Radio Newsline’s Hap
Holly, KC9RP, about how this Cuban-American matchup came to be.

[HAP’S REPORT]

A HOSPITAL HAM SHACK

The newest operations taking place inside the Sylvan Grove Hospital in
Jackson, Georgia have nothing to do with scalpels or anaesthesia. The
operators, in this case, are licensed radio amateurs and they are
breathing new life into the hospital’s emergency radio shack. There, in
the hospital basement, a collection of state-of-the-art rigs provides
access to the UHF and VHF bands as well as D-STAR for station WX4BCA.

The Butts County Amateur Radio Emergency Service Group is using the
hospital-based equipment to make critical connections with fire and
health departments, as well as 911. Ken Wallis, a member of Butts County
ARES, says six people serve as the hospital’s response team, ready to
get on the air in an emergency. He says: QUOTE “With this radio, we can
talk across the street, nationally or internationally if we have to."
ENDQUOTE

The radios were purchased with a grant from the Georgia Hospital
Association. ARES member Buzz Kutcher calls the equipment typical of
what’s at other local hospitals, making Sylvan Grove one more link in
the area’s chain of safety.

YES, YOU CAN SURPRISE A HAM OR TWO OR THREE

For 20 years, Ronald Uhlman, KC6MTO, has been just what the doctor
ordered for the Benicia, California Police Department. It helps, of
course, that the longtime radio amateur also happens to the doctor. The
retired podiatrist has spent the past two decades in various jobs as a
volunteer with the Benicia police. And now, as he and his wife make
plans to relocate to Washington State, the department has done something
for him: He has been honored for his selfless work by Police Chief Erik
Upson and the rest of the force.

Now 75, Uhlman began volunteering in various jobs with the police in
1995, and ultimately worked his way up to community service officer.
Responding to the surprise award just as he is finishing his tenure, the
humble Uhlman says simply QUOTE"It’s embarrassing. I didn’t do anything
special. I was just doing what I was supposed to do and having a good
time doing it." ENDQUOTE

No doubt Hal Post, AK2E, of Middle Grove, N.Y., and Jay Buscemi, NY2NY,
can relate. Post and Buscemi have been chosen to receive the 2015 “Grand
Ol’ Ham" award for the American Radio Relay League’s Hudson Division, in
the New York-New Jersey area.

Hudson Division Director Mike Lisenco described Post and other award
recipients as “very worthy individuals who have had an impact on amateur
radio in the Hudson Division." Other honorees are: Rachel Weiss, AJ4WD,
Bruce Baccaro, K2ULZ, and John Melfi, W2HCB, three Amateur of the Year
award winners. The Technical Achievement award went to Blair Hearth, KD2EPA.

The awards luncheon is Sunday, Nov. 8.

seventh such free gathering put together by the North Fulton Amateur
Radio League, as a way to promote ham radio in the southeast. Raffle
tickets sold at the event fund the league’s education programs as well
as scholarships for youth.

The half-day program at the Metropolitan Club features an array of
speakers including Mike Corey, K-I-ONE-U (KI1U), ARRL Emergency
Preparedness Manager; Jamie Dupree, NS3T, radio news director of Cox
Media Group’s Washington Bureau and Glen Popiel, KW5GP, author of the
ARRL’s book, “Arduino for Ham Radio," who will present his talk via Skype.

POPE SPECIAL EVENT BLESSED BY BIG NUMBERS

[SKEETER] Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C., New York, and
Philadelphia drew big crowds and lots of close encounters with the
leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics. It also made quite an
impact on the ham bands. We get the story from Amateur Radio Newsline’s
Mark Abramowicz, NT3V…..

[MARK’S REPORT]

“The number of contacts were really incredible. The band conditions
weren’t that great while the event went on or we probably would have
made more."

That’s Jim Nitzberg WX3B from the Potomac Valley Radio Club, one of the
coordinators of the special event stations put on the air by amateurs in
the Mid-Atlantic region.

“The number of contacts that we made are just shy of 27,000 and that’s
on a various array of high-frequency bands, VHF bands, internet/ham
radio communications, satellite communications and Earth-Moon-Earth
communications," Nitzberg says.

He says there was a lot of interest in the Pope special event stations
once they hit the air Sept. 22. They were on the air until the pope was
wheels up out of Philadelphia on Sept. 27.

“The United States and the European countries were the highest
interest," Nitzberg says. “The majority of the contacts were made on the
HF bands, and, specifically, the 20 and 40 meter bands. There was more
contacts made using voice (or SSB) than Morse Code. But there were a lot
of contacts made using the Morse Code as a method of communication as well."

And, Nitzberg says, even the Vatican station got on the air for a short
period to take part.

“I saw them active on our DX spotting networks and they were on 17
meters," Nitzberg says. “It was during one of the last days of the event
so that must have been really exciting for those that got to make
contact with them."

Now it’s it’s time to begin answering all the requests for QSLs and
certificates.

“We have several hundred requests for cards, several hundred awards
certificates that have been printed already," Nitzberg says. “And I
noticed the Philadelphia group that’s managed by Sig, N3RS, and my group
are just ordering cards and we’re ordering a total of 4,000 cards
because we think that’s how many people are going to request cards."

Pope Special Event story and you’ll find the link for information there….

IARU SPEAKS OUT FOR ANTENNAS

Antenna restrictions have got to go. So says the International Amateur
Radio Union’s Administrative Council, which recently opted a resolution
urging its members to press their local governments to ease limitations
on amateur radio antennas.

The resolution says, in part, that societies need to QUOTE"advocate for
planning and development regulations that properly recognize the
importance of an Amateur Radio antenna and do not place undue
restrictions."ENDQUOTE Those restrictions included any fees that might
be imposed which, the resolution said, could pose a problem
QUOTE"particularly in view of the non-pecuniary nature of Amateur Radio
and its popularity in the student and senior communities."ENDQUOTE

The measure was passed during the IARU’s meeting in early October in
Bali, Indonesia.

RUNNING FOR THE WARRIORS

The Great South Bay Amateur Radio Club in New York, and the Babylon Town
ARES has issued a QST for at least 100 volunteer radio operators for
this year’s Hope for the Warriors Run on Saturday, Nov. 7. The 10K and
5K race shuts more than 200 streets on Long Island’s busy south shore,
allowing runners to safely navigate the course with the intention of
raising funds to aid wounded veterans. The Hope for the Warriors
organization not only helps rehabilitate newly returned, injured
veterans but assists with their medical needs and helps their families
find appropriate housing for the disabled. The race begins in
Lindenhurst, New York, near Babylon Town Hall.

Ham radio operators with handheld radios and an interest in helping
ensure runner safety can email club president John Melfi at
W2HCB@arrl.net, or simply sign up on the club’s website, www.gsbarc.org.

FCC TO WEIGH IN ON TINKERING

The ARRL is listening for a clear signal from the FCC that it’s OK for
hams to modify non-amateur equipment to use on the air, especially WiFi
network devices. Recently proposed FCC rules, affecting the
authorization of RF equipment, have spurred concern in some corners of
the amateur community that these rules would restrict or prevent hams
from going on the air with equipment they’d modified.

The ARRL comments say, in part: QUOTE"The Amateur Radio Service has a
very long tradition of modification and adaptation of commercial
communications equipment." The League also pressed the FCC against
limiting Software Defined Radios to SDRs intended for use exclusively in
the Amateur Radio Service. The ARRL filed its comments on Oct. 8.

COASTING TO ANOTHER ANNIVERSARY
More than 50 ham radio stations throughout the United States will be on
the air beginning Friday, Oct. 16 through Sunday Oct. 18 as special
event stations marking the 76th anniversary of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary. The stations will operate mainly with 1 x 1 calls from
lighthouses, battleships, vessels and other venues, using both voice and
digital modes, including CW and PSK-31.
Participating stations include N7B, a mobile station near the Alki Light
House in Seattle, Washington; N3G, operating portable CW & PSK-31 from
Augustine Beach, Delaware and NJ2BB, the Battleship New Jersey.

DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS

A scholarship fund has been established by the ARRL Foundation in memory
of Alan G. Thorpe, K-ONE-T-M-W (K1TMW), a Connecticut radio amateur who
became a Silent Key in 2011 at 65. Thorpe was a longtime member of the
Stratford, Connecticut Amateur Radio Club, and had key emergency
coordination roles in the Amateur Radio Emergency Service. He was known
by Stratford club members as community-minded and an educator. Longtime
friend and fellow ham, Bob Betts, N-ONE-K-P-R (N1KPR), tells the ARRL
that Thorpe had left a trust fund to help continue his work after his
death, and made a bequest as well to the ARRL. Betts says: “Al believed
in the basic tenets of our hobby: Education, promotion and community
service, and he directed all his available efforts toward those goals."

The Thorpe memorial fund hopes to award its first $1,000 scholarship in
2016 to a licensed amateur enrolled in a four-year undergraduate
program, with studies in any major. The ARRL Foundation is administering
the scholarship.

HAMS REVISIT NEPAL’S EARTHQUAKE

Ham radio operators who responded last April to the devastating
earthquake in Nepal still haven’t forgotten the scenes of devastation in
that Himalayan nation. And they are sharing the drama of that damage –
and the successful rescue work – by recreating that experience during a
puja, or Hindu worship gathering, in Kolkata. Members of the West Bangal
Radio Club will demonstrate how ham operations assisted the distressed
area on April 25, and how the radio amateurs’ operations in the days
afterward helped restore stability.

Organizers say that the experience will be recreated with a simulated
earthquake of a very low magnitude, courtesy of special light and sound
effects, accompanied by vibrating motors. Says Anupam Das, one of the
organizers, QUOTE"As one steps into the tunnel at the entrance, they
will feel slight tremors. When they pass through, a scene of devastation
will lie before them. But our theme is not the damage itself, rather how
India helped Nepal in rescue and relief. Our theme is humanity."

The amateur radio club’s secretary, Ambarish Nag Biswas, says amateurs
who were present to assist in the search and rescue in Nepal will be
conducting the live demonstration.

The quake caused widespread damage and was responsible for the deaths of
thousands.

KICKER: HAM SCHOOL

The middle school students in Kingman, Arizona, aren’t licensed hams
yet, but they were still able to give a 5 and 9 to their teacher, Dan
Miller, K3UFG. Miller, a teacher’s aide at Kingman Middle School, has
been a ham since 1962. He drew upon his years of experience to teach
radio science to youngsters during an enrichment program during school
intercession earlier this month.

Miller’s lessons included battery-testing, use of a volt-ohm meter, and
the differences between direct current and alternating current. He gave
them a sampling of what Morse Code is like and even helped them build
their first dipole antenna from wire he’d had stored at home.

When it came time to put that antenna to the test, however, the kids
made a seamless transition from radio science to archery: In order to
get a string over the rung of a pole so they could hoist their dipole
up, they shot it there using a bow and arrow. Not long after, Miller
successfully guided them through a QSO with a ham named Walt in
Torrance, California.

Later, the enthusiastic kids told Miller that yes, they’re ready to
start studying for their licenses. And even if their eventual ham
careers never call upon their skills at archery again, Miller can be
pretty sure he hit a bull’s-eye that day.
