1 GB2RS NEWS Sunday 29 April

The news headlines

* Radio ham saves sailors

* ISS crew connects with schools

* FCC petitioned to restore Morse tests

An amateur radio operator from Comboyne in Australia answered the calls
of two sailors battling treacherous five-metre seas in the Pacific
Ocean during Good Friday.

Harold Ralston, 62, has been a radio ham for 30 years and was working
in his shed when he heard the cries for help.

Sailors Bob Wilson and Mike Ross struck rough seas 75 nautical miles
south east of Port Macquarie. Then were left drifting helplessly when
the propeller on the 14m long vessel, Maniunda broke. With no power, no
steering and battling against 40 knot winds they were unable to pick up
English speaking radio operators. However as Ralston was 600m above sea
level he had a greater range. He was 200km away and kept in touch and
alerted the rescue authorities.

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station, ARISS, program
has had a very busy and successful April. This month, amateur radio has
made it possible for youngsters at nine schools in the US, the
Netherlands, Australia, Hungary and Russia to speak with the astronauts
and cosmonauts aboard the ISS. On 12 April, students at three schools
got the chance to talk with those aboard the ISS. Two ARISS school
contacts were made on 17 April and brought the total to 286 since the
first ISS crew came aboard in November 2000. ARISS International
Secretary Rosalie White, K1STO, commented that it was a very ambitious
schedule for the dedicated team of volunteers. She noted that civilian
space traveler Charles Simonyi, KE7KDP/HA5SIK, has been spending some
of his precious time in space on the air.

Further ARISS contacts are planned for 5 May at around 10.24 and 13.34.
The ISS audio, on 145.800MHz FM, should be audible across Europe. The
contact will also be relayed via Echolink.

The American communications regulator, the FCC, has received petitions
to reverse its recent decision to drop the Morse requirement from
amateur radio licences. Petitioner Anthony R. Gordon, KG6EQM, of West
Covina, California, contends that significant national security
implications require that the FCC take another look at the issue.

The Swains Island N8S DXpedition team made 117,205 QSOs. This
represents the fourth highest alltime DXpedition contact total. After
shutting down on April 15, the crew made it back to American Samoa late
the following day and soon will begin the operation from Samoa as
5W8AA. The first N8S QSL cards will be available in about a month.
YT1AD will handle cards for N8S.

Four CubeSats containing payloads operating on amateur radio
frequencies were among several spacecraft launched successfully on 17
April from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan.

The rocket deployed seven CubeSats plus seven other satellites from
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine into Earth orbit, and signals from the
four CubeSats have been copied on Earth. Among the spacecraft was
Colombia's first satellite.

2 The Renfrew Amateur Radio Society has received a #3000 award from the
All Scotland National Lottery Grant. They are planning to buy two new
HF transceivers and two aerials for their special event day, the 100
year scout celebration, Scotland. It is due to take place between 25
and 27 May.

Three clubs in East Anglia, Clacton Radio Club, Felixstowe and District
Amateur Radio Club and Harwich Amateur Radio Interest Group have joined
forces to operate the GB400AA special event station. The station will
commemorate the founding of Jamestown, Virginia 400 years ago when the
ships Susan Constant, Godspeed and Discovery arrived in Virginia. They
had 102 passengers and founded the first English speaking settlement in
North America.

GB400AA will be operated at the Mayflower Museum on the Halfpenny Pier
at Harwich where The Harwich Society will have an exhibition showing
the local area's connections with the inaugural voyages. The station is
planned to operate on 11 to 13 May and 25 to 26 May.

IARU Region 1 invites HQ stations of its member societies and stations
of special emergency communication groups to participate in the second
EmCom Party On The Air on May 5 at 11.00 to 15.00. The operation will
occur on the emergency centre of activity frequencies on 40, 20 and 15
meters. The exercise will test how usable these frequencies are across
Region 1. It will also increase interest and find best practice for
emergency communications between emergency groups such as RAYNET. It is
emphasised that this is not a contest but an emergency communications
exercise.

The aim for participants is to contact IARU Region 1 HQ station OF3F in
Finland and also as many other national HQ and emergency communication
group stations as possible using SSB.

More information on the UK involvement in this exercise can be obtained
from the RAYNET HF Team website at www.raynet-hf.net.

RST, serial number and locator form the exchange. The RSGB 10GHz Trophy
contest takes place between 1400 to 2200 on 5 May, all modes. The
exchange is RST, serial number and locator.

Now the solar factual data for the period from 16 to 22 April, compiled
by Neil Clarke, G0CAS.

Solar activity was very low with no solar flares taking place. The
solar disc was spotless except for the 17th and the 18th when a small
single spot appeared. Solar flux levels remained at 69 units except for
the 19th when it declined to 68. The average was 69 units. The 90 day
solar flux average on the 22nd was 74 units, that's one unit down on
last week. X-ray flux levels remained below the minimum A1 level
everyday. Geomagnetic activity was quiet, for example the Ap index was
only 1 unit on the 16th. A coronal hole disturbance arrived as forecast
on the 22nd when the Ap increased to 10 units. The average was Ap 6
units. The ACE spacecraft saw solar wind speeds decline from 430
kilometres per second to 280 by the 21st. Speeds then increased to 470
kilometres per second during the 22nd. Particle densities were low
everyday but increased to 32 particles per cubic centimetre on the
22nd. Bz varied between minus 3 and plus 2 nanoTeslas on the quiet days
and between minus 8 and plus 10 nanoTeslas on the 22nd. At HF, 14MHz
remains the only really consistent band, with some good evening
openings to South-East Asia. Occasional good openings, mainly over
southerly paths, occurred on 18 and 21MHz. 24 and 28MHz were patchy at
best. Some areas of the UK enjoyed enhanced tropo at VHF and UHF. And
finally the solar forecast.

This week solar activity looks set to continue at very low levels.
Solar flux levels should be around the 70 mark. Geomagnetic activity is
expected to be unsettled today due to a recurring coronal hole. For the
rest of the week activity should be mostly quiet. MUFs during daylight
hours at equal latitudes should be around 18MHz for the south and 15MHz
for the north. The darkness hour lows are expected to be about 9MHz.
Paths this week to India should have a maximum usable frequency with a
50 per cent success rate of around 22MHzs. The optimum working
frequency with a 90 per cent success rate will be about 17MHz. The best
time to try this path will be between 0800 and 1600 hours UTC. Normally
the start of May heralds the start of the sporadic-E season. Openings
could take place on 28MHz and 50MHz. It maybe a couple of more weeks
yet before openings take place on 144MHz. And that's all for this week
from the propagation team.
