NATIONAL NEWS


What is the best future direction of the WIA Grant scheme?
That is the question that the WIA Board asks members advice.
VK4ERM Ewan McLeod VP WIA joins us.

The 2007 Grant Committee has now reported and the WIA Board decisions on
allocations of grants has been publicised on the WIA web site and in this
News item.

The committee made a number of comments about the 2007 scheme and the Board
believes that WIA members should have the opportunity to provide input into
any changes to future schemes of this kind....

The WIA Board believes the grant schemes can be an important element of
supporting the development of amateur radio. Affiliated Clubs in particular
should consider what could be done to make the scheme more appropriate given
the comments and observations of the Grant Committee.

The full text of the Grant Committee comments are on the WIA web site but in
essence what they said was this:

Firstly, the committee considers that the scheme is not working as well as it
could They believe that Innovation is not being stimulated. For instance they
noted that no 2007 applications were received for digital communications, APRS
or any other newer technology or innovative projects. They suggest that future
grant schemes should redesigned to promote innovation in special interest
areas. This, they argue, should promote clubs to look outward into newer areas
of technology applicable to amateur radio.

The committee was disappointed that many clubs have an overwhelming focus on
operating and maintaining repeater communications systems, where most of the
technology involved is well established. They felt that few grant applications
focused on the promotion of amateur radio or the WIA. Most promotion was
incidental to the project being applied for.

The Grant Committee also commented on the need for a different approach to
promoting training opportunities, which they felt were best dealt with by some
other approach than competitive grants. I should note here that members will
be aware of the very excellent brochures on amateur radio and on the WIA we
have produced and distributed widely. These make a big impact on our
marketing and promotion tasks...

Finally in their comments, the committee noted that the grants scheme requires
a reporting mechanism and this is a matter we will follow up in our
correspondence with clubs and in future schemes.

I would ask all members to consider these issues and give us advice by the
closing date of 1st December this year. In particular the WIA Board would like
to hear how you think your club would see the grants scheme evolving.

Comments should be forwarded to the WIA Secretary no later than 1 December
2007. Comments may be emailed to or by post to the
Secretary WIA at PO Box 2175 Caulfield Junction Vic 3161.

Brett VK2CBD reports that a very successful open weekend was held at the CSIRO
Parkes radio telescope last week with about 3500 people in attendance. About
2000 people took the opportunity to have a close look around the facility on
one of the many 30 minute guided tours that were conducted.

The WIA, Orana Region ARC and the Orange and Districts ARC were all in
attendance handing out lots of information and advice for those interested in
amateur radio. Most of the promotional material and give always which included
caps and stubby holders from Icom Australia, CD's full of AR related programs
and information, copies of AR, and the now well known "Calling CQ" pamphlets
were given away during the weekend. All in all a fantastic result for
amateur generally and for the Orana and Orange Clubs. Brett would like to
acknowledge the splendid job done by all those involved, including Brian
VK2KML, James VK2FQZL , John and Jean VK3???, Jamie VK2???, Bob VK2???,
Phil VK2FIL, and Greg VK2???.

Entry was gained to the compound by cutting the chain on the side gate.
Despite some heavy duty attempts on the shack door they were unable to gain
entry. The existing lock was damaged in the attempt however it still prevented
entry to the shack. Security has been further enhanced thanks to Alan VK1WX.

HAM COLLEGE WA RESULTS

Congratulations to all those people who participated in the last Foundation
Course and subsequently on passing your exam. I would like to personally
congratulate Brian and Ann from Collie who I am sure we will hear on the air
very soon.

Don't forget next exam session for Ham College is the 27th October - If you
want to upgrade that call then now is the time to get studying and get your
name in to me - call 0412 704226. Last Foundation course for 2007 will be
November - book early to avoid disappointment.



and finally some words of wisdom.

An OM will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
An XYL will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.

A YL worries about the future until she gets an OM.
An OM never worries about the future until he gets an XYL!

A successful OM is one who makes more money than his XYL can spend.
A successful YL is one who can find such a man!




BPL WITH VK2DKN PHIL WAITE

In last week's broadcast I mentioned that the WIA was attending the
international CISPR BPL working group meeting in Sydney.

The aim of this Working Group is to set measuring methods and propose
emission limits in order to protect established radio services in the
frequency band 1.6 to 30 MHz from interference from BPL.

The meeting was attended by about 40 people with several representatives from
countries such as France, Germany, UK, USA and Australia. The WIA attended as
an observer.

At the last Working Group meeting in Geneva (which Australia did not attend)
those present agreed to submit a draft proposal to change the test method for
measuring conducted emission from BPL modems.

The Australian group presented three papers to this latest meeting in Sydney
which suggest that, without modification, the proposed change would relax the
emission limits for BPL modems by at least 20dB.

Following spirited technical discussion a sub-group of 10 technical experts
was formed to investigate the issues and report back to the next CISPR BPL
Working Group meeting in Washington, late January.

CISPR is where the rubber meets the road as far as BPL is concerned, and as
CISPR's charter is to protect radio communications services the outcome from
the BPL working group will be very interesting. We believe it will be very
difficult for CISPR to adopt methods and limits which both allow BPL to
operate and also protect HF radio communications services.

This is Phil Wait, VK2DKN, for the WIA.




SILENT KEYS

Jim VK5NB who died last week. He was a president of the SA division for
some time and involved right up until the winding up of the SA Division.
He was passionate about the WIA and the need for a strong membership.
Jim also was proud of his radio museum. He loved restoring vintage
broadcast sets and older ham radio equipment.
Jim was the president of the Adelaide Hills Club until his passing and
was very involved with his church and other volunteer work in the community.
As Bob VK5NZ told me "He will be sorely missed Graham."

NEWS FROM ARNEWSLINE


TEXAS CB'ER FINED $7000 BUT WILL ONLY PAY $225

A Texas CB operator originally fined $7000 for his refusal to permit a station
inspection will now only have to pay a token $225.

The operator was originally issued a $7000 Notice of Apparent Liability to
Monetary Forfeiture. This after an inspector from the FCC's Houston office
tracked interference to CB channel 19 to Winton's residence. When told to
turn off the transmitter Winton obliged but he refused to let the inspector
look over his gear.

The FCC rules say that he must permit such an inspection or expect punitive
action. In April the FCC did just that by issuing the $7000 fine. But he
provided proof he could not pay and the FCC decided to adjust the amount down
to the $225 level. Once he pays it will be. case closed.



HAM RADIO IN SPACE: THE SAGA OF AO-7 CONTINUES

Like a Timex watch, its still ticking. Of coarse we are referring to
the AO-7 ham radio satellite which was one of the earliest birds that
radio amateurs had to work with. Amateur Radio Newsline's Fred Vobbe, W9HDU,
takes a look at this aging but still operational ham radio miracle on orbit:


The Amsat OSCAR 7 ham satellite was launched on November 15, 1974 on a
Delta rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Lompoc, California. It
initially stopped transmitting in 1981 after a battery failure. But it
sprang back to life on June 21st 2002. Since its miraculous emergence from
the long term battery problem, AO-7 has been an available to use.

SSB in Mode A is the normal with several QSOs able to take place at a time.
Mode A uses an uplink from 145.850 to 145.950 MHz and a 10 meter downlink of
29.400 to 29.500 MHz . This transponder is linear, non-inverting.

Numerous reports of its switching between mode A and B have been
verified. Mode B uses an uplink of 432.125 to 432.175 MHz and
downlinks on 145.975 -through 145.925 MHz. But there is a bit of a
problem in using Mode B. Due to changes in Amateur Service and Amateur
Satellite Service there are questions as to legality of Amateurs
transmitting to AO-7. The uplink frequency predates the WARC '79
allocation of 435 to 438 MHz by the International Telecommunications
Union for the Amateur Satellite Service. This puts the uplink in 70cm
weak signal segment. Potential users should realize that when they
are uplinking Mode B to a satellite, they are no longer operating in
the Amateur Service but instead operating in the Amateur Satellite
Service. Thus they are subject to Amateur Satellite Service rules.
Therefore uplinking to AO-7 is possibly illegal since the Amateur
Satellite Service is not permitted at 432.1 MHz.

But in Mode A, the AO-7 the satellite has a much larger footprint than
AO-51 and is in view much longer. It also requires some of the
simplest gear of any ham radio bird currently in flight. Equipment
that you will find in almost every ham shack, world-wide.

For the amateur radio Newsline. I'm Fred Vovve, W8HDU.

So dust off those mode A high frequency receivers and 2 meter SB
transmitters or transverters and try to make a contact on the AO-7
bird. It may take a little more effort to use, but it's fun and rewarding.

RAYNET on hand to help plane crash

South Sussex RAYNET group were on hand to help when a plane
crashed at the Shoreham Air show.

Each year an emergency plan is rehearsed and refined, in the hope
that it will never be needed. However on the weekend 15th and 16th
September that practice paid off. On the Saturday a Hurricane
nose-dived into the ground, killing its pilot instantly. The
incident happened off-field, and no one else was involved.

Two members of the team who witnessed the incident informed
Control, who put everyone on high alert. The emergency channel
sprang into use. The pre-prepared messages and procedure for
Incident Off Field was broadcast, and acknowledgements sought from
all on that net. This resulted in all access and departure gates
being closed, all senior safety and administrative personnel being
briefed, the PA Caravan being informed, and members of the public
kept aware of the situation.

Shortly after the accident, Spitfires flew a 'man missing' flypast
in tribute to the downed pilot.

Peter Parker VK3YE on the QRP reflector has posted a great summary of his
travels thru VK6 working QRP.

His observations from GERALDTON are worth noting.


Good local activity on 160m on 1840 SSB in the evenings, especially from
stations around Bunbury. Contacts up to 550km were made with 4w from
Geraldton despite the makeshift antenna.


Good 80m results to the south west during the day (attribute this to the
over-water path from Geraldton and the low sunspots).


40m within VK6 is currently very poor (for distances up to 500km). At
further distances it would be OK (see later).

A highlight was working VK6KGQ. Lewis was running a 1w DSB kit
transceiver. Signals up to 55 over the 700km path from Kalgoorlie.

DX worked included W4GF on 30m & 8N0CLE on 40m. There is some YB CW
activity on 160m but couldn't make contact.

Eastern states contacts from Geraldton included VK3OM SSB on 20m, VK3IM CW
on 40m, VK4VFX on 80m & VK3XU on 80m.


Peter then moved on to the township of DOODLAKINE

Did listening tests to experience the RF quiet location. People in towns
and cities don't know what they're missing until they go to places like this
with zero noise.

VK6ADI CW beacon (3.686 MHz) at Beverley (?) was strong during the day.
Apparently QRP but didn't know how low.


40m was amazing. During the middle of the day (noon - 2pm EAST) SSB
stations from VK2, 3, 4, 5 & 7 were audible from over 2500km away, with some
'armchair copy'.

This proves that DX propagation in sunspot minima years can be good but to
take full advantage of it on the lower bands you need an RF quiet location
as even s3 noise will smother many signals.

73, Peter.
