Orlando HamCation® has announced that ARRL Life Member Neil Rapp, WB9VPG, of Bloomington, Indiana, is the 2021 recipient of the Carole Perry Educator of the Year Award. The award recognizes an outstanding individual contribution in educating and advancing youth in amateur radio. It was first awarded in 2018 to its namesake, Carole Perry, WB2MGP, in honor of her work as an educator teaching students about ham radio. Rapp was an ARRL 2004 Professional Educator of the Year. He’s an Assistant Central Division Director and anARRL VEC certified examiner.An educational professional for more than 28 years, Rapp currently teaches chemistry at Bloomington High School South. He’s also the school’s amateur radio club sponsor and has introduced 3,600 students and parents to amateur radio through his involvement in the organization. Among his educational achievements, he was able to send an experiment involving protein crystallization to the International Space Station (ISS). He also mentored 2013 Amateur Radio Newsline Young Ham of the Year and ARRL William R. Goldfarb Memorial Scholarship recipient Padraig Lysandrou, KC9UUS.Rapp got his license when he was 5 years old, and, at the time, was touted as the world’s youngest ham. Now 50, he’s the host and founder of the amateur radio podcast Ham Talk Live! He’s also a member of AMSAT and was the youngest person to both join and be eligible for membership in the Quarter Century Wireless Association (QCWA). He contributes to the “Next-Gen Contesters” column for NCJ. Orlando HamCation has been sponsored by the Orlando Amateur Radio Club since 1946. HamCation 2022 will be held February 11 – 13, 2022.

Virgin Orbit’s LauncherOne is a go for launch on Wednesday, January 13, at 1500 UTC, carrying the AMSAT/Vanderbilt RadFXSat-2/Fox-1E CubeSat into space. The LauncherOne vehicle will carry 10 other satellites. RadFXSat-2/Fox-1E carries an inverting linear transponder, with an uplink at 145.860 MHz – 145.890 MHz, and downlink at 435.760 MHz – 435.790 MHz. Telemetry will downlink on 435.750 MHz. More information is on the Space Launch Now website. — Thanks to AMSAT News Service/AMSAT-UK SourceСообщение AMSAT/Vanderbilt RadFXSat-2/Fox 1E Set to Launch появились сначала на PSKOV.

On January 30, 2021, another session of radio communication with the International Space Station was held at the Youth collective radio station of the Aznakaevo airfield.At the ISS station, two Sergeys were answering children’s questions, so it was possible to make a wish. The first question was asked by Emil Valeev, a pupil of the 2b class of school №2:– How do you take water procedures? The answer was accepted with a smile because they just took water procedures.The second question was asked by a pupil of the 1c grade of school № 2 Valeev Daniel:– Do you like space food? The answer interested everyone because everyone drooled and wanted to try it.Then there were questions from Timur:– Are there any fears in space? Which was received with laughter from the astronauts.Alina:– What experiments do you do in space? There was also a decent answer.Then Zalina of the first grade of the 1st school asked a question:– Who do you go to for medical help?Unfortunately, the time of the session was limited and the beginning of the session was also late, so we ended the session:– That’s really cool! Hearing the live voice of an astronaut from outer space is something. We saw the trajectory of the flight, how they move at 27500 km per hour, answering all the tricky questions from the kids! It was worth seeing. We could hardly fit into the booth, some parents even didn’t fit in, they were standing in the street – the chairman of TPS ¹4 Khazipova Nuriya Kasimovna commented on this event.Not all wishing could ask questions, I think we will choose a day and time of the period of passage of the ISS to our city and we will invite all in advance. After the event, the students demonstrated amateur radio communications on short wave. And the first radio contact was made by Sophia and Georgy Malinin, pupils 2B and 7A of school № 7. Thank you all for your participation.We thank the head of the city Sultanov Marat, the deputy head of the Department of Education Zaripova Zulfiya, the chairman of TPS №4 Khazipova Nuriya, as well as students and their parents.MediaAll participants were awarded diplomas for participationMediaWe start preparing for the next session, and we say hello to them:SourceСообщение Junior school students from Aznakaevo held a session on radio communication with the cosmonauts появились сначала на PSKOV.

by Tom, DF5JLTime and again the question arises as to how far you can turn the tuning knob when transmitting in SSB voice mode. Up to the edge of the band range? Using the 60 m band as an example, we will discuss the question here.According to WRC-15, the range from 5351.5 to 5366.5 kHz, also called the “5 MHz band”, is allocated to the amateur radio service on a secondary basis. So, for example, are radio amateurs allowed to transmit on 5366.0 kHz within the WRC-15 60 m bands in USB? [1]The so-called “dial frequency” indicates only the frequency of the carrier suppressed in SSB. However, the modulation range for USB extends up to 3.0 kHz higher. That means 5366.0 kHz + 3 kHz = up to 5369.0 kHz. This means that a large part of the signal is outside the range assigned to the amateur radio service (see diagram, right signal, in red)! And: parts of the modulation spectrum cover the section intended for “narrow-band weak signal modes”, such as WSPR. And thus leads to interference.Time and again the question arises as to how far you can turn the tuning knob when transmitting in SSB voice mode. Up to the edge of the band range?

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) and its partners are troubleshooting what is keeping the NA1SS amateur station off the air.ARISS became aware of the problem after an attempted contact with a school in Wyoming, between ON4ISS on Earth and astronaut Mike Hopkins, KF5LJG at NA1SS, had to abort when no downlink signal was heard. ARISS has determined that the problem is not with the radio equipment onboard the ISS Columbus module.ARISS-International Chair Frank Bauer, KA3HDO, explained that during a 27 January spacewalk to install exterior cabling on the ISS Columbus module, the coax feed line installed 11 years ago was replaced with another built by the European Space Agency (ESA) and Airbus. It included two additional RF connectors to support the Bartolomeo payload-hosting platform installed last spring on Columbus.“On 26 January, prior to the EVA [extravehicular activity], our Columbus next-generation radio system was shut off and the ISS-internal coaxial cable to the antenna was disconnected from the ARISS radio as a safety precaution for the EVA,” Bauer said. “During the spacewalk, an external four-connector coax feed line replaced one with two RF connections. This change was made to allow ESA to connect ARISS and three additional customers to Bartolomeo, as compared to ARISS and one additional RF customer,” Bauer explained.With the spacewalk completed, the ISS crew restarted the ISS amateur radio station on 28 January, but no voice repeater or automatic packet repeater system (APRS) downlink reports were heard and no downlink signal was heard during an attempted scheduled school contact either. Bauer said that because the exterior cable is not an ARISS cable, ARISS is working with ESA and NASA on a way forward. “NASA has opened a Payload Anomaly Report on this issue. We have talked to both the NASA and ESA representatives,” Bauer said.SourceСообщение What is keeping the NA1SS amateur station off the air? появились сначала на PSKOV.
