ARRL NEWS 09/11/2019
ARRLと国際アマチュア無線連合(IARU)のラリー・E・プライス名誉会長(W4RA)は、9月10日にジョージア州ステートボロで死去した。ARRLライフメンバー、彼は85歳でした。 アーカンソー州リトルロック出身のプライスは、16歳でWN5TIAとしてライセンスを取得し、その後W4RAになる前にいくつかの他のコールサインを開催しました。BSEE、MBA、博士号を取得した後、彼はアメリカ陸軍信号隊の第2中尉として任命され、名誉船長の階級で解雇されました。

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Price was first licensed as WN5TIA at age 16 and subsequently held several other call signs before becoming W4RA. After earning BSEE, MBA, and PhD degrees, he was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the US Army Signal Corps and honorably discharged with the rank of captain.

Price spent most of his career as a professor of finance and economics at Georgia Southern University. Upon retirement, he was named emeritus professor and emeritus head of the Department of Finance and Law.

Elected as ARRL Southeastern Division Vice Director in 1973, Price became Director later that year and was elected as an ARRL Vice President by Board of Directors in 1980. In 1983 he became First Vice President following the death of ARRL President Vic Clark, W4KFC, and was elected President by the Board the following year.

In 1973, Price was one of three incorporators of the ARRL Foundation and served for several years as Secretary and Director. IARU Secretary and retired ARRL CEO David Sumner, K1ZZ, enjoyed a 46-year relationship with Price. “As a young ARRL staffer, I had the good fortune to be asked to serve as Assistant Secretary of the ARRL Foundation in 1973 and worked closely with Larry from that point on,” Sumner said. “His accomplishments as President of the ARRL and the IARU are too many to list, but neither organization would be what it is today without his vision, dedication, and hard work. We all owe a great debt to Larry and his family for their many sacrifices on our behalf.”

IARU President Tim Ellam, VE6SH, recalls his many years of association with Price. “The Amateur Radio fraternity has lost a valued colleague today,” Ellam said. “Larry Price was the Dean of the IARU, and under his leadership the organization not only achieved great success for the Amateur Radio services but the respect of those we work with in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). His work and tenacity on a number of issues gave the IARU the admiration of many administrations and senior leadership at the ITU, which we continue to enjoy today.

” Ellam said Price was “an excellent mentor to me and many others” over the years, and that during his 10 years as IARU President, he’s tried to maintain the ideals that Price instilled in the organization.

In 2014, Dayton HamventionR honored Price as Amateur of the Year. At the ARRL Centennial Convention that same year, Price was awarded the ARRL Medal of Honor.

Price’s wife, Barbara Ann Parke Price, died in 1990. He is survived by their three children and several grandchildren. ? Thanks to David Sumner, K1ZZ

MCosmopolitanism, enthusiasm for technology and international understanding across all borders characterize the “ham spirit” that radio amateurs from all over the world are living out today. Over the weekend, 14,300 visitors from more than 50 countries extended their antennas at the Ham Radio on Lake Constance in order to make contact with each other face-to-face, to glean information about the latest technology, and to report on it to others by radio. “Visitors to the fair feature a high level of technical expertise, which means they are also quite demanding in terms of what they want from the exhibitors and the content of the supporting program. With the support of the German Amateur Radio Club (DARC) as the ideal sponsor, we once again lived up to our reputation as Europe’s leading trade fair for amateur radio. The 44th edition attracted some 400 more visitors than in the previous year,” says Messe Friedrichshafen CEO Klaus Wellmann and Project Manager Petra Rathgeber. With 184 exhibitors and associations from 32 countries presenting themselves, the lecture program was first-rate: in addition to presentations by industry leaders, Nobel Prize Laureate Joe Taylor attracted a great deal of interest among visitors with his remarks.

3YOI POSTPONED(3YOI 延期)

 
And yet! The captain of the MV Atlantic Tuna had to take a difficult but responsible decision to take a course back to Cape Town, South Africa. But the 3YOI Expedition is NOT canceled ? we don’t give up that easily.
I just had a long conversation with Dom 3Z9DX on board on the MV Atlantic Tuna. The seas calmed down enough to let them do a proper technical inspection of damages caused by the severe cyclonic storm last night. Here are more details on the latest dramatic events.
On March 26, 2019, the vessel has been approaching a cyclonal storm wandering nearby Bouvet Island. The captain analyzed the latest weather reports indicating a chance to break through the storm ? it hasn’t been that strong at that time. Unfortunately, the storm developed and intensified in a matter of an hour. Around 5-6 o’clock GMT, just 70 nautical miles off Bouvet island, the ship has been hit by a series of 11+ meters (36+ ft) tall waves + wind exceeding 83 knots/h (approx. 160 km/h). The fierce oceanic forces swept past the upper deck, taking one of the radars, including VSAT, VHF and HF marine antennas, off the mast and throwing them all overboard. The hit was so hard the vessel tilted as much as 45° (but that’s still safe in terms of the vessel’s construction).
 
Wind conditions near Beuvet Island
 
THE DXPEDITION IS NOT CANCELED!
Regardless of the final outcome of our attempts, it’s clear that activating Bouvet Island is one of the most difficult and the most dangerous undertakes of the ham radio ? and not only ? history. Yet, the 3YOI’s events will be long discussed and analyzed by the Team to “attack” the island one more time ? as soon as possible ? again all marked with “safety-first” principles.

The Team has dedicated more than 4 months living in Cape Town, right next to the vessel, to prepare things in person. We have sacrificed Christmas time and spent that special time without our families. And yet, have spent an enormous amount of our private funds to make it all happen for the ham radio’s sake. But we don’t give up, and we all know we gained your trust in our current and future ham radio attempts. We really appreciate that!

Until now, Bouvet Island vs. Hams 2:0! But that’s just the first half of the show. Long live the ham radio legacy and its supporters!
