1 GB2RS NEWS Sunday 6 May

The news headlines

* RSGB creates two Life Vice Presidents at the AGM

* RAYNET service award to G3STG

* Worcester Radio Amateur team up with VMARS

The RSGB held their 80th Annual General Meeting on Saturday 28 April in
Edinburgh. The meeting was opened by RSGB President Angus Annan,
MM1CCR. Also on the rostrum were RSGB General Manger Peter Kirby,
G0TWW, Honorary Company Secretary Rupert Thorogood, G3KKT, and Honorary
Treasurer Bob Dingle, G0OCB.

The afternoon was more of an informal session with Board members giving
presentations about their portfolios, followed by a question and answer
session at the end.

The AGM dinner was held at the Paramount Carlton Hotel. The president
was joined by guests of honour Trevor Baylis, OBE, inventor of the
clockwork radio, and Practical Wireless editor Rob Mannion, who
received an award to celebrate the 75th birthday of PW.

Two Life Vice Presidents were created at the RSGB AGM. David Pratt,
G4DMP, and Mike Dixon, G3PFR, were awarded this prestigious honour for
their decades of service to amateur radio.

The RSGB Raynet Cup was presented to Geoff Griffiths, G3STG, at the
RSGB AGM. Geoff joined RAYNET in 1957 and receives this award in his
50th year of membership, in recognition of his long-standing service to
RAYNET. He served as chairman of both the RSGB National RAYNET
Committee and the Network's Committee of Management. Geoff commented,
"I was surprised and very pleased to receive the RSGB RAYNET Trophy
this year. I have enjoyed working for RAYNET for many years."

Many other presentations and awards were made during the AGM. A full
report will appear in the June edition of RadCom.

Over the weekend of 19 to 20 May, members of the Worcester Radio
Amateurs Association and members of the Vintage Military Amateur Radio
Society are teaming up for a special weekend camp just outside the
Worcester City boundary.

The weekend camp is a combination of antenna testing, operating vintage
military radio equipment and portable operation practice. Many members
of both groups have a wide ranging interest in anything wireless and
military, so there will be much to be learnt from the camp.

Members of VMARS are planning on erecting a large Shirley antenna,
which has been used by the military for field communications for many
years. Many are looking forward to putting this strange antenna to the
test.

There will be several military vehicles at the camp for the duration of
the weekend, including a couple of Ferret armoured personnel vehicles,
a Saracen, a Uni-Mog and a couple of land Rovers, all fully equipped
with radio gear. There will also be a very special Bedford MK lorry on
site on Saturday only, fully fitted with some rather interesting
equipment. Anyone interested in coming along can find more information
at www.wraa.co.uk.

2 A new website, www.RadioDXer.co.uk, has been launched to create an
online community for UK based amateurs and other radio enthusiasts
where they can participate in discussion on anything to do with radio
as a hobby.

Graeme Stoker, M0EUK, the man behind the website believes that there
are a number of similar American-based forums, but nothing really with
a UK focus. He is also trying to foster a community and collaborative
spirit, which can hopefully become self-perpetuating in terms of
supporting fellow enthusiasts.

RAYNET controllers are requested to confirm or update group data to
as soon as possible. Details required are Group
Controller name, callsign, address, contact phone numbers and e mail
address, plus group web site address if there is one. If a group has a
deputy controller and/or secretary, then please send their details as
well. County and regional controllers (non-Network) are also requested
to send their details. Address will be kept confidential, but other
data will appear in the 2008 Yearbook and RCVS on-line database.

ALL groups are invited to submit photographs of recent
operations/exercises for possible inclusion in the Yearbook and other
publications. Please provide information as to group, venue, event,
date, etc., with each image. Network Group details will come via the
Network database.

NASA has announced that US astronaut Clay Anderson, KD5PLA, will
succeed Suni Williams, KD5PLB, as International Space Station
Expedition 15 Flight Engineer later this spring. Anderson will arrive
aboard the ISS aboard the shuttle Atlantis, set to launch on 8 June.
The same shuttle mission will carry Williams back to Earth. Suni
Williams has been in space since early December. During her ISS stay,
she set a record for spacewalks by a female astronaut, conducting four
excursions for a total of 29 hours and 17 minutes. Upon her return, she
will have accumulated more time in space than any other woman. She has
also logged 20 school contacts so far.

ARISS International Chair Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, has recently addressed
some of the questions regarding ARISS operations and equipment upgrade
and repair. He says that ISS construction has again shifted into high
gear and the delivery and assembly of two new ISS modules is now on the
near horizon. But that activity has a downside for amateur radio
activity.

Bauer explained that the launch of any new or replacement ham radio
gear or computers to support ARISS operations has been significantly
curtailed because the cargo weight limits on construction flights are
very tight. There are just too many higher priority activities. The
extra workload on the crew has taken its toll on ARISS they have had
very little extra time for amateur radio activities beyond school
contacts. Bauer concedes that while these developments are somewhat
frustrating both to the ham radio community at large and to the ARISS
International Team, ARISS nonetheless is pleased that space station
crew members have been able to speak so often with youth groups
worldwide, piquing their interest in Amateur Radio, science,
technology, engineering and maths.

Colchester Radio Amateurs are holding a one day Foundation Licence
Assessment day on Sunday 24 June. To enrol, or for further information,

An RSGB presentation is being held on 14 May at the Helena Thompson
Museum, Workington at 7pm. Regional Manager Kath Wilson, M1CNY, and
board member Dave Wilson, M0OBW, are to make a presentation on the RSGB
and take part in a question and answer session.

3 Thirty amateurs from across the north of England congregated at
Silcoates School, Wakefield for the first ever ARDF Seminar in the UK.
The seminar was hosted by the Silcoates School Radio Club and delivered
by members of the RSGB ARDF Committee. The aim of the seminar was to
trigger the start of regular ARDF competitions in the north of England.
At present the events programme is restricted to the midlands and south
of England and there is a `chicken and egg' element in the situation in
the north.

The day comprised of three short classroom presentations, hands on
sessions with DF receivers for both 144 MHz and 3.5 MHz and two mini DF
hunts in the grounds of the school. The attendees were of all ages and
there were representatives from two Scout groups and an Air Training
Corps wing, to emphasise the attraction that ARDF has to young people.
The greatest enthusiasm and competitiveness for the mini DF hunts was
apparent amongst the ten young licence holders who participated.

In addition to the practical elements of the day, a small shop was
operated offering for sale DF receivers for 3.5 and 144 MHz as well as
receiver kits, plus transmitters for both bands and aerials. A final
feedback session saw many questions and a general desire to try to
further the development of ARDF in the north of England.

AMSAT-NA reports that after many years of forwarding packet messages
via UO-22, GO-32 and AO51, the Satgate System will shut down. The total
of 35 worldwide stations in the system a few years ago has dwindled due
to a lack of traffic, maintenance problems, change of location and
operator attrition. The system originated with David Medley, KI6QE, and
the driving force over the past several years has been Andrew Sellers,
G8TZJ, who developed software to permit Satgate stations to be fully
automated. Meanwhile, an analog transponder of the FO-29 satellite
reportedly has shut down, although Earth stations are looking into
resurrecting the satellite and invite telemetry reports via e-mail.
Ground controllers want to develop a plan to restore the decade-old
satellite to operation. Mineo Wakita, JE9PEL, has created a simple
decoder program for FO29's CW telemetry downlink, should signals be
heard.

A small group of radio hams in Florida have set up a Group on Yahoo, a
web based directory that can be accessed by almost any ham. The aim is
that the site will be used by visitors to and from the UK and USA for
local information, repeaters, simplex, Psk and digital modes, HF
frequencies and ham radio related news. For more information log onto
groups.yahoo.com/group/k4eez.

The RSGB 432MHz activity evening takes place between 2000 to 2230 local
time on 8 May on all modes. The exchange takes the form of RST, serial
number and locator. Now the solar factual data for the period from 23
to 29 April, compiled by Neil Clarke, G0CAS.

As forecast several weeks ago, the present spell of solar inactivity
came to an abrupt end. However, despite the large size of the sunspot
group solar activity only increased to low on the 24th when a single
small C class solar flare took place. As the sunspot group rotated into
view solar flux levels increased from 69 units on the 23rd to 85 by the
28th. The average was 79. The 90 day solar flux average on the 29th was
74 units, that's the same level as last week. X-ray flux levels
increased from below the minimum level to A4.7 units by the 26th. The
average was A3.5. That's the first week that the average as been above
the minimum level since the end of February. Geomagnetic activity
started at quiet levels with an Ap index of only 3 units. The predicted
coronal hole arrived on the afternoon of the 27th. The most disturbed
day was the 28th with the Ap index at 26 units. The average was Ap 14
units. The ACE spacecraft saw solar wind speeds increase from 400
kilometres per second to 720 by the 29th. Particle densities were low
except for the 27th, which increased to 13 particles per cubic
centimetre. Bz varied between minus 4 and plus 6 nanoTeslas on the
quiet days to minus 9 and plus 8 nanoTeslas on during the disturbance.
HF propagation was unexciting, though there were again good openings to
the Far East on 14MHz and 24MHz produced contacts with Africa on
several days. On the 22nd, GM4CXP reported strong signals from the
German beacon DL0IGI, which he heard again weakly on the 23rd. This was
the first substantial sporadic-E opening of the new season. As we move
into May the chances will improve of contacts at 28 and 50MHz, though
it could be a few weeks before they are an everyday occurrence. High
latitude VHF aurora was reported on the 27th and 28th. And finally the
solar forecast. This week the quiet side of the Sun is expected to be
rotating into view. Solar activity could be low at first but decline to
very low levels around midweek. Solar flux levels are expected to
decline and be around the 70 mark by next weekend. Geomagnetic activity
should be quiet for most of the week. MUFs during daylight hours at
equal latitudes should be about 18MHz for the south and 15MHz for the
north. The darkness hour low should be around 10MHz. Paths this week to
South Africa should have a maximum usable frequency with a 50 per cent
success rate of about 23MHz. The optimum working frequency with a 90
per cent success rate will be around 17MHz. The best time to try this
path will be between 0700 and 1600 hours UTC. Sporadic-E could take
place on some days with openings up to 50MHz. Finally, a meeting of
space physicists in the United States last week concluded that the next
cycle, 24, will not start until March 2008. They were split over
whether it will be an intense cycle, peaking in 2011, or a
substantially weaker one reaching maximum in 2012. Even for the best
experts long-range forecasting of how the Sun will behave remains an
uncertain business. And that's all for this week from the propagation
team.
