  • Weather Enthusiast Wanted to Help NWS Phoenix:
    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- When rain, lightning and dust storms hit the Valley, all eyes are on the sky. For a specially trained group of people in Arizona, it's for good reason. The National Weather Service relies on their network storm spotters to get them information. "We want to know that what we are seeing is happening in real time. So is there large hail, is there wind damage and flash floods, that sort of thing," said Ken Water, warning coordinator for the National Weather Service Phoenix. Storm spotters get their training every year during the National Weather Service's Skywarn classes. The course goes through a basic overview of weather from how thunderstorms form, to different types of clouds, to Arizona's famous dust storms. "We also closely network with the amateur radio or the 'ham' folks out there too," said Waters. Information from storm spotters is instant, especially with the advancement in technology. The pictures, video and reports can get to the National Weather Service in seconds. They combined that with radar and satellite information which helps them make split second decisions.

  • FEMA and NRC Like Local Palisades Response:
    PAW PAW -- Southwest Michigan emergency response agencies have passed a test of their ability to respond to a simulated nuclear accident at Palisades nuclear power plant. The term that testers from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Federal Emergency Management Agency used was "reasonably assured." "The exercise ... demonstrates reasonable assurance exists of the licensees' ability to effectively implement its emergency plan to adequately protect the public health and safety in the event of a radological emergency," said Michelle Garza, an NRC emergency preparedness inspector. "The exercise involved a lot of different participants," said Dwaine Warren, supervisor team leader of FEMA's Radiological Emergency Preparedness Program. Emergency service agencies plus schools, public health, amateur radio operators, Palisades, WCXT radio, the American Red Cross and others from Van Buren, Berrien and Allegan counties took part.

  • Westlakes ARC Holds Open Day to 'Demonstrate the Joys of Amateur Radio':
    Lake Macquarie boasts one of the largest amateur radio clubs in the country, and in April the York Street club threw open their doors for a 'come-and-look' open day. The Westlakes Amateur Radio Club (WARC), based in Teralba, uses its open days to show what the club does on a regular basis, and to "introduce visitors to the joy of amateur radio". As well as undertaking radio electronic fox-hunts and demonstrations of radio communications in the club's 'radio shack', participants were able to test out satellite communication, amateur television transmissions and play with microcomputer construction.

  • NOAA: Solar Cycle 24 Status and Solar Cycle 25 Upcoming Forecast:
    Current solar cycle 24 is declining more quickly than forecast. The smoothed, predicted sunspot number for April to May, 2018 is about 15; however, the actual monthly values have been lower. Will solar minimum be longer than usual or might solar cycle 25 begin earlier? Leading solar and space science experts will convene a meeting in the coming years and attempt to predict solar cycle 25. The "official" solar cycle forecast includes the month, year, and intensity of that maximum (peak, average sunspot number). The consensus forecast is the result of collaboration by a solar cycle prediction panel of solar and space scientists from around the world. Typically, the panel considers all new, relevant research results, observation trends, and model predictions available when the panel is convened.

  • Foundations of Amateur Radio #151:
    In the past I've talked about the Standing Wave Ratio, the SWR, and how it describes some of the characteristics of your antenna system. I say system because it's not just the antenna, it's the connection between your radio and the antenna as well. The coax or feed line, their length and how you've connected your antenna, all feature in the performance of the entire kit and caboodle.

    The FCC released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on April 17, seeking comment on proposals to streamline its rules regarding the deployment of "small satellites." This would include small spacecraft put into orbit for Amateur Radio purposes, as well as small satellites launched by non-Amateur Radio entities, such as universities, but using Amateur Radio spectrum. The NPRM primarily addresses satellites launched by the commercial sector, however.

  • Getting It Right!
    In The ARRL Letter of April 19, the article, "New 630-Meter Band Reported 'Very Busy'" contained an incorrect call sign. The sentence should have said, "NO3M, who also operates as W8CDX, reports eight DXCC entities worked on the new band." A photo caption in the same article indicated that NO3M was using a modified Heathkit amplifier for his amateur work on 630 meters.
