SDRplay - the new generation SDR
Since recently a new generation of small, low-cost software defined radios on the market, which closes the gap between the RTL-SDR in the form of USB sticks and the high-priced top-SDR. The SDRplay with a range of 0.1 to 2000 MHz is one of them. What can the device and whether the purchase is worth, you will learn the practical test of our author Jan Peuser.

Self building project: The Morsetrainer

Do you fancy an exciting handicraft project for the long winter evenings? Then you should try the Morsetrainer Peter Baier, DJ3YB. The self construction project is on material costs by just ?27 (?15 without Board). Thanks to the used controller with intelligent firmware, it enables wire learning without a teacher after successful tinkering. Practical: Morsetrainer tutor is no longer needed, it can be used with new firmware in CW radio operation.

WWV’s 25 MHz Signal is Back on Original Vertical Dipole

 
WWV の 25 MHz の信号は元の垂直ダイポールに戻ってきた!
 

時間・周波数標準局 WWV の復活 25 MHz の信号-1977 年の沈黙を経てオリジナル アンテナと場所から垂直ダイポールに送信が戻ってきました。25MHzの信号は、2014 年 4 月に「実験的」に送信した経緯があります。

Time and frequency standard station WWV’s resurrected 25 MHz signal ? now back on the air for more than a year after going silent in 1977 ? is once again transmitting on a vertical dipole from its original antenna and location. The 25 MHz signal came back on the air on an “experimental basis” in April 2014, and it’s been transmitting ever since. The WWV vertical dipole is not something you’d likely find in the average ham radio antenna farm.

“The antenna the 25 MHz [transmitter] is on right now is the original antenna it was on in 1977,” Matt Deutch, N0RGT, WWV’s lead electrical engineer, told ARRL this week. “When the 25 [MHz transmitter] was shut down [that year], the radiating section was removed [and] tossed in the bone yard, and a new longer section put on the tower to make it a 15 MHz stand-by antenna.”  Read More

6月26日、ハムラジオ2015の会議室「スイス」においてプレス・カンファレンスが開かれました。席上、ドイツ・アマチュア無線連盟会長(DARC)ショッペ氏の挨拶をまとめましたので、その概要をお知らせいたします。de JA1IFB/KA1Z

 
プレス関係のみなさん、ヨーロッパ最大の第40回ハムラジオ2015にご参加頂きありがとうございます。 ここフリードリスハフェンのハムラジオ2015は無線仲間の最大の祭典です。この40年間、毎年マイルストーンを刻んできましたが、ハムラジオはアマチュア無線家にとって、自局の電波が世界中にまたそれを超えて到達しても、限定的かつ不十分であります。

例えば、無線機器の自作、科学的実験、最新技術の習得、アマチュアTV、OSCAR、EME通信またARDFなどアマチュア無線は多様です。DARCは発想の源として、今回、"アマチュア無線には境界がないこと"を認識しなければなりません。鉄道や道路等の起点よりの距離をマイルで表した距離標識のこと。
 
挨拶中のDARC会長、ショッペさん(左)、プレス・カンフェレンスの受付兼司会者(右)
"宇宙ステーション、人工衛星や、電波、電磁波反射"夢を膨らませる標語の下、ハムラジオ2015上空の宇宙におけるアマチュア無線通信は、6月26日から28日までのハムラジオにてアマチュア無線家のためにその扉を開いています。 ARISS国際プロジェクト副社長、オリーバ氏と2014年11月ARISS宇宙通信に参加したウオレ学校の学生ヤコブ君の報告とトークショーをお聞きください。  

「不思議そうに黙って見つめている子供たちへ宇宙ステーションが地球から見える軌道に現れた時、突然宇宙から明朗な声が降ってくる、歓声と共にアドレナリン一杯の子供達の眼が輝き、満面の笑みがこぼれる。ARISSの魅力だね」とオリーバ氏は力説する。 それを受けて「昨年の交信は興奮したよ、携帯電話は家族と友達間の水平範囲、しかし、宇宙通信は1対1でコンタクトする神秘的な垂直の世界ですね!」とヤコブ君が感想を語りました。
 
▼ トークショー
ショッペ会長から結びの挨拶が一段落した時、十代のヤコブ君とショッペ氏、オリーバ氏、ブレーデ氏、さらにメーカーワールドの責任者ペトラ氏も加わり、携帯電話と対比しながらアマチュア無線の楽しみ、無線機器の自作、DXとの交信話などが続出。トークショーが熱心に繰り広げられました。
 

パネリストの皆さん(左)と新規発表の製品カタログ類(右)

 
1930年代後半、月面反射実験に使用した送信機の出力は20kWと大型のアンテナであった。デジタル技術の開発と応用があいまって、出力100Wと簡単なアンテナ設備により宇宙通信が可能な時代が到来した。「かかる宇宙通信はアマチュア無線に大きな夢を与えるであろう」とドイツ・アマチュア無線連盟は信じている。 将来の夢を語ることに加えDARCは基本を忘れていません。

アマチュア無線は社会の人々と互いに意思疎通を計りながら社会還元の一環として教育、訓練に奉仕しています。今日、ドイツではアマチュア無線の魅力を体験し、そうして、無線関連の分野に従事しているアマチュア無線家の約67,500人が技術開発援助、教育政策を通じた社会貢献をめざした地道な活動をしている彼ら、彼女達の姿をもご披露しておきます。 主催者の挨拶で、8割強のドイツ・アマチュア無線家が電子、電気分野に従事していることを知りました。以上、たプレス・カンファレンスの概況をまとめました。

あとがき
 
今回、ドイツを中心にしたヨーロッパ各地からの受験者を、彼らの容姿、身のこなし方や物事に対する流儀などから年齢層を推測して見ました。9歳の小学生一人を除き、躍動感のある20代、如何にも経験豊かな55歳代の二つの団塊がそこにあるような印象を受けました。しかしながら、多感なテイーンエイジャーおよび人生の多忙な時期に差し掛かっている30ないし40歳代の存在が希薄なことに驚きを隠せません。
 
試験開始前のVEミーティングにて一寸紹介されていたのですが、ドイツ郵政省?の担当官が"ボランティア試験官によるアマチュア無線ライセンス試験の現状"を初めて視察されました。将来のアマチュア無線試験制度の見直しを企画しているのでしょうか、ドイツ郵政省?の対応には興味津々です。
 
日本からの受験者が扉を開けて現れることを今か今かと心待ちにしつつ、絶え間なく提出される答案用紙に赤鉛筆を走らせ、忙しい中にも、快い緊張感を覚えながら、リエゾン、K7DX、ウオルフソンさんの「ありがとう、機会があればまた会おう!」の謝辞を耳に、4時間にわたるFCCライセンス試験のお手伝いが終りました。

New World Distance Records Set on 2.3GHz and 3.4GHz Ham Bands

 
2.3GHz、3.4GHz バンドで最長距離4024 キロの世界記録
 

06/23/2015  ARRL NEWS
Two California radio amateurs− one of them in Hawaii − have set new world distance records on the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz microwave amateur bands. Wayne Overbeck, N6NB, operating from a radio-equipped rental car on the big island of Hawaii, worked Gregory Campbell, W6IT, operating Overbeck’s own fixed station near Orange, California, on both bands ? a distance of more than 4024 km (2495 miles). The contacts blew away records that had stood for more than 20 years and more than doubled the previous distance record for a two-way voice (SSB) contact at those frequencies, Overbeck said, adding that most previous microwave distance records have been set using CW.

ARRL Representatives Talk “Field Day” Publicity on
  “Ham Radio Now” Webcastn

 
ARRL「アマチュア無線今」をウェブ キャスト

ARRL フィールド日、6 月 27-28日、ARRL メディア&広報のY7YL、「ハムのラジオ今」ホスト ゲイリー ・ ピアース、KN4AQは”アマチュア無線の今”についてアドバイスを共有するために参加しました。

 
 
06/10/2015 ARRL NEWS
ARRL Field Day, coming up the weekend of June 27-28, often offers an ideal occasion for hams to meet members of the media or the public and to describe the event specifically and Amateur Radio in general. ARRL Media and Public Relations Manager Sean Kutzko, KX9X, and ARRL Public Relations Committee Chair Katie Allen, WY7YL, joined “Ham Radio Now” host Gary Pearce, KN4AQ, to share some views and advice on the topic “What Field Day is REALLY About” and how to convey this to the general public. All three agreed on one big point: Stress that 95 percent of what radio amateurs do is fun.
“Share your excitement,” Allen advised. All also agreed that club members attempting to tell what’s happening at their Field Day site need to avoid ham radio jargon. “Be ‘less hammy’ about it,” Allen suggested. “Nobody’s going to know what 40 meters is,” Kutzko rejoined, while conceding that it can be hard for hams to avoid using terms such as “fist,” “worked” and “QSO.” Pearce recommended fine-tuning “an elevator pitch” to tell non-hams about the hobby. The program also critiques some specific ham radio publicity efforts and media encounters. The June 10 “Ham Radio Now” (HRN No 208) webcast is available on YouTube.

Another Australian Balloon with a Ham Radio
                 Payload Circumnavigates Earth

 
ハムラジオを載せたオーストラリアのバルーンが地球一周へ。
 

5月25 日、アマチュア無線局を載せたグエン ・ アンディ、VK3YTは PS 46 バルーンを立ち上げ6 月 4 日、以前、グエンのPS 41 バルーンが初めて地球周回したようにバルーン旅行を始めました。

 
 
06/04/2015 ARRL NEWS
The circumnavigation of another party-type foil balloon from Australia has demonstrated that having one circle the Southern Hemisphere is no fluke. Andy Nguyen, VK3YT, launched his PS-46 balloon, which carried an Amateur Radio payload, on May 25. The balloon completed the trip on June 4. Nguyen’s earlier PS-41 balloon was the first such balloon to circle Earth.

“This time it was in the right position ? before arriving in Western Australia ? for the jet stream to push it over land,” Nguyen said.

The helium balloons in this series carried a solar-powered 25 mW transmitter which sent WSPR, JT9, and sometimes Olivia signals on 30 and 20 meters, enabling their tracking and the gathering of reports on altitude, speed, direction, and battery condition. The PS-46 balloon completed its journey around the globe in slightly more than 12 days. ? Thanks to Jim Linton, VK3PC

Traffie Technologies, the Massachusetts-based family business that has pioneered and manufactured the HEX-BEAM line of compact rotatable wire beams, is closing its doors. “This is to inform everyone that we are closing down production of the HEX-BEAMR,” an announcement on the
HEX-BEAM website said.

The company’s principal, Mike Traffie, N1HXA, has indicated that he is open to having someone else take over the business. The small firm came into being in 1992, and HEX-BEAM antennas have been developed for 40 meters through 2 meters in various monoband and multiband versions. The company’s latest product is the HX5Bi, which covers 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 meters.
