RADIO LAW:  COCONINO COUNTY ARIZONA CONSIDERING HAM RADIO
EXEMPTION TO NEW ANNTI DISTRACTED DRIVING LAW

Some changes to a highly restrictive distracted driving law
enacted by a northern Arizona county may soon see some
revisions favorable to amateur radio as we hear from Bruce
Tennant, K6PZW:

--

Less than two months after passing an ordinance that bans
the use of all non essential two-way radios while driving,
the Board of Supervisors for Coconino County Arizona is
eyeing changes that would once again make mobile ham and CB
radio use legal.  This according to a draft of the revised
law recently made public

The Coconino County Board of Supervisors is slated to meet
on June 24th to discuss changes to the ordinance that might
remove a number of restrictions against two-way radio use
while driving.  Among these would be a revision to Section 3
that deals with exemptions.  If the statute is changed, it
would delete the words +ACI-and is operating an amateur radio
under the direction of authorized first responders in the
event of an emergency.+ACI-

The section would then mean a driver who holds a valid
amateur radio operator license or any license issued by the
Federal Communications Commission would be exempted.  The
change could also exempt those who use two way radios in
their business and users of 11 meter Citizens Band radio.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Bruce Tennant, K6PZW, in
Los Angeles.

--

Whether or not this change will be granted will not be known
until the Coconino County Board of Supervisors cast its
votes.  The draft measure in .PDF format is available to the
public at tinyurl.com/nn2uyt6   (KB7BGX, QRZ, UCBA, various

ENFORCEMENT:  COAST GUARD SEEKS PUBLIC'S HELP IN IDENTIFYING
HOAX CALLER

Attention hams in the Pacific North-West.  Heres one where
you may be able to be of assistance in locating a station
alleged to be making false reports on the VHF maritime band.
.
The U.S. Coast Guard out of Seattle, Washington is asking
the help of the public in identifying a hoax caller that
made multiple false distress calls earlier this month in the
Puget Sound area.  The first of these phony calls was
received by the Coast Guard Vessel Traffic Service on Puget
Sound via VHF-FM radio channel 14 around 11 p.m., May 31st.
Take a listen:

--

USCG Audio:  +ACI-May Day May Day.  My fishing vessel is going
down a little south-west of Lilliwaup.  Does anybody her
me?+ACI-

--

The next night the hoax caller reported that that five
people were donning life jackets and abandoning the fishing
vessel Bristol Maid which he claimed was fire in Lilliwaup
Bay.  Coast Guard officials believe the same caller placed a
third phony call around 10 p.m. on June 2nd.

According to the Coast Guard, well over +ACQ-138,000 was spent
in response to these three phony reports.  It notes that
making a false distress call is a felony with a maximum
penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a +ACQ-250,000 fine.
There is also a +ACQ-5,000 civil penalty and possible
reimbursement to the Coast Guard for the cost of performing
the search.

Anyone with information regarding these false distress calls
is asked to contact the Coast Guard 13th District Command
Center at 206-220-7003.  The complete news release along
with links to audio files is on the web at tinyurl.com/phony-

RESTRUCTURING:  FCC DISMISSES PROCEEDING DEALING WITH THE
902 TO 928 MHz
BAND

The FCC has concluded a long pending regulatory proceeding
involving the 902 to 928 MHz band.  This without taking any
action at all.

Back in 2006 the FCC proposed a rule change in WT Docket 06-
49 which was aimed at encouraging development of the
Multilateration Location Monitoring Service or M-LMS.  This
was to be a terrestrial service for location of objects and
tracking them.

What concerned ham radio was that it holds a secondary
allocation status in that band to federal radiolocation and
other services including M-LMS.  Among other things, the
fear in the Amateur Radio community was that wide-spread use
of M-LMS could severely hamper weak signal operations.

But with almost no elaboration the FCC has now decided not
to adopt new rules affecting all service users in the band.
In the dismissal order the regulatory agency noted that
based on the record before it, and on recent developments
pertaining to M-LMS operations it concluded that the various
proposals for wholesale revisions of the applicable rules
simply do not merit further consideration at this time.

RESTRUCTURING:  27 MHZ SSB CB LEGAL IN THE UK AS OF JUNE 27

United Kingdom telecommunications regulator Ofcom has
announced amendments to that nations Wireless Telegraphy
license regulations that will enable 27 MHz SSB Citizens
Band operation with 12 watt Peak Envelope Power.

Specifically, the revised United Kingdom C-B rules will
allow two different Amplitude Modulation modes of operation.
These are designated separately as AM double side band and
single side band.  This will be on a license exempt basis
with an effective date of June 27th.

Until now, 11 meter Citizens Radio in the United Kingdom has
been an FM-only service.

RESTRUCTURING:  13 CM BAND MAY BE THREATENED IN NETHERLANDS

It appears that Dutch radio amateurs may lose a substantial
segment of the 2300 MHz or 13 cm band.  According to
information provided by the Belgium national amateur radio
society the U-B-A, as of Monday, June 23rd the band segment
between 2330 to 2400 MHz may not be used in a radius of 22
miles around the city of Assen.  This is a city in the
northeastern Netherlands, and is the capital of
the province of Drenthe.  This action follows other European
nations that have also made known their intentions to
diminish or fully ban radio amateur's access to this
spectrum.

HAM RADIO IN SPACE:  ARTSAT1: INVADER RECOVERED

The ARTSAT control team has thanked the ham radio community
for its assistance in recovering the ARTSAT 1 INVADER
satellite.  According to J-eye-one-eye-zed-R with the
satellite located a reset command for the on-board computer
was successfully sent and plans are underway to activate the
digi-talker once again.

The downlink frequency for Artsat One Invader is 437.325MHz.
It's predicted that the satellite has another month on-orbit
before re-entry into the Earths atmosphere.  Look for more

DX UP FRONT:  HEARD ISLAND TEAM BEING REORGANIZED

In DX up front, word that the long awaited VKZ0EK Heard
Island operation will go forward but with some changes in
personnel.  According to a website announcement, over the
past two months five team members have withdrawn citing
conflicts or the desire to participate in a shorter, less
challenging DXpedition.  This includes the team leader.

The post goes on to say that this has the group short of
operators and therefore they have decided to completely
reorganize the team. The first step is to identify a new
team leader who is experienced with organizing and leading
DXpeditions to rare locations.  This new leader will have
the responsibility for rebuilding the team and managing all
amateur radio operations once on Heard Island.  No dates or
timetable were given.  OPDX

DX UPFREONT:  EJ0PL FROM GREAT BLASKET

Also, nembers of the Papa Lima DX Group will be operational
as EJ0PL from Great Blasket Island between July 26th and the
31st.  This bit of land lies approximately one and a half
miles from the Irish mainland at Dunmore Head. It was
populated until 1953 when the Irish government decided that
it could no longer guarantee the safety of the remaining
population.  Its most prominent feature is its nearly 1000
foot high point however this is often obscured by sea mist.
If you happen to contact EJ0PL QSL direct or via the bureau.

WITH NEWSLINE:  NO YOUNG HAM OF THE YEAR AWARD THIS YEAR

There will be no Young Ham of the Year Award presented in
2014.  This, according to a statement issued by Mark
Abramowicz, NT3V, who is Chairman of the committee that
judges the program.  The statement reads as follows:

+ACIAIg-The Young Ham of the Year Award judging committee's
decision is to defer making an award this year due to the
low number of nominees.  This does not in any way reflect on
the quality of the nominees we did receive or on their
nominators.  It's simply the decision of the judges that
more nominations and documentation would be needed to make a
fair determination of the Young Ham of the Year.  Therefore,
it's hoped that nominators will begin thinking about 2015
and potential candidates for such a prestigious award.+ACI-

Right now the plan is to open nominations again in February
of 2015.   (YHOTY Judging Committee)

ENFORCEMENT:  PROPOSED FINE AGAINST OKLAHOMA CB OPERATOR
LOWERED

An Oklahoma CB operator who was issued a +ACQ-12,000 Notice of
Apparent Liability for interfering with other CB operators
has had that fine reduced to +ACQ-1750.

In his response to the original proposed fine, Orloff
Haines, who also holds the amateur radio callsign KF5IXX,
did not deny that he had intentionally interfered with other
operations on the 11 meter band, but asserted that he is not
able to work or pay that high of a forfeiture.  He also
provided the FCC with the required proof that such an amount
would be a financial hardship.

By way of background, in May 2013 the FCC T-Hunted the
source of a continuous carrier on CB channel 19 to Haines's
residence in Enid, Oklahoma.  The FCC agents approached the
home and identified themselves.  At that time Mr. Haines was
not at home, but his wife allowed the FCC personnel to
inspect her husband's CB station.  The agents found the
station to be constantly transmitting on channel 19.

The FCC says that Mrs. Haines's told the agent that her
husband's radio was continuously transmitting because other
CB operators in the area had been harassing her.  According
to the FCC, Mrs. Haines voluntarily turned off the CB
transmitter once the station inspection had been concluded.

In its order published on June 17th, the FCC agreed that the
proposed +ACQ-12,000 fine would prove to be a financial hardship
FOR Haines and lowered it to the +ACQ-1750 level.  At the same
time it also warned Orolff Haines that that similar
violations in the future could result in significantly
higher forfeitures that may not be reduced even if proof of
financial circumstances is provided.  (FCC)

RADIO LAW:  FCC MAY TRY TO KILL TENNESSEE LAW LIMITING CITY
INTERNET SERVICE

The Federal Communications Commission may nullify a
Tennessee law that restricts the abilities of cities to
build their own high-speed Internet networks.  Amateur Radio
Newsline's Stephan Kinford, N8WB. has the details:

--

Chattanooga, Tennessee, has built a municipal broadband
network to consumers' homes, but a state law is preventing
the city government from expanding the service to more
residents.  And now it looks as if the city has a powerful
supporter on its side.

In a blog post on June 10th, FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler
said broadband projects like the one in Chattanooga are
bringing new competition and spurring economic growth.  He
went on to argue that local governments should not be
stopped by state laws promoted by cable and telephone
companies that don't want that competition.

But Wheeler's position could face resistance from Republican
lawmakers.  Eleven senators sent a letter to Wheeler warning
him not to usurp state power.  The senators say that it is
troubling to them that the FCC may force taxpayer funded
competition against broadband providers against the wishes
of states.

The bottom line is that Wheeler seems to want more
competition in expanding broadband and appears ready to use
the full power of the FCC to make it happen.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Stephen Kinford, N8WB,
reporting.

--

If the FCC tries to strike down a state law, it would likely
point to Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act, which
gives the agency the authority to promote the deployment of
broadband.  State laws that restrict municipal broadband
could be in violation of that provision, according to the
FCC.  More is on the web at tinyurl.com/wheeler-broadband

RESCUE RADIO:  MASSACHUSETTS HAMS HELP AMATEUR IN DISTRESS

Hams in the Plymouth, Massachusetts area assisted with a
medical emergency over the Memorial Day weekend when an
amateur radio operator took ill while on the road.

According to the ARRL's Amateur Radio Service E-Letter, Ron
Smith, N1PXX, had pulled over on the side of the highway
after he experienced a medical issue.  He then radioed over
the 146.685 MHz repeater that he was in need of help.

Kevin O'Donnell, K1KOD, responded and obtained Smith's cell
phone number.   O'Donnell then used both the radio and the
cell phone to keep in contact with Smith.  At the same time
he called the emergency 911 response number giving Smith's
location to the State Police.  He then informed Smith that
police and an ambulance were en route.

Initially the police drove by Smith's vehicle without
stopping.  David Ring, N1EA, also assisting, placed
additional calls to the police and emergency services that
located Smith and transported him to a local hospital.  The
good news is that N1PXX is reported to be on the road to
recovery.

RESCUE RADIO:  WTSP TV STORY PRAISES HAM RADIO FIRST
RESPONDERS

Hams involved in Emergency Communications in Sun City
Center, Florida, recently received some high praise from
Tampa television's WTSP news.  This in a feature story by
reporter Mark Rivera, who took a look at the role played by
radio amateurs in emergency situations such as hurricanes
and the like.

Among those interviewed by Rivera was Sun City Center
Amateur Radio Club president Rick Sochon, N1OV.  Sochon told
WTSP viewers that it gives one a great deal of satisfaction
when you could provide life saving services to somebody.

His words were echoed by Preston Cook who is the
Hillsborough County emergency manager.  He said that ham
radio operators provide a vital service in so many different
areas in his county during a major response.  Cook added
that's the reason ham radio operators have a seat at the
table in its Emergency Operations Center.

All in all a very nice endorsement of ham radio in first
response situations.  Its viewable on-line at

HAM RADIO IN SPACE:  OSCAR NUMBER ASSIGNED TO LITUANICASAT-1

In ham radio space related news, word that LituanicaSAT-1
will now also be known as LituanicaSAT OSCAR-78, or LO-78.
The announcement of the OSCAR number designation was made by
OSCAR Number Administrator Bill Tynan, W3XO who announced
that LituanicaSAT-1 has met all of the requirements for such
a designation.

Meantime, LituanicaSAT-1 controllers have announced
activation of the satellites FM transponder.  A general rule
to find out if the transponder is working at any given
moment is simply to monitor the beacon frequency on 437.275
MHz.  If you can the hear it that means that the transponder
is off.  If you cannot hear it, then the transponder is on
and listening on its uplink at145.950 MHz for a signal with
67 Hz access tone. The downlink frequency is approximately
435.1755 MHz  10 kHz Doppler shift.  (ANS, W3XO)

THAT FINAL ITEM:  NASA BEAMS 'HELLO WORLD+ACE-' VIDEO VIA LASER
FROM SPACE STATION

And finally this week, NASA has successfully beamed a high-
definition video 260 miles from the International Space
Station back to to Earth using a newly developed laser
communications instrument.  Amateur Radio Newsline's Heather
Embee, KB3TZD, has the details:

--

The transmission of +ACI-Hello, World+ACEAIg- as a video message was
the first 175 megabit communication for the Optical Payload
for Lasercomm Science or OPALS system.  This is described as
a technology demonstration that allows NASA to test methods
for communication with future spacecraft using higher
bandwidth than radio.

Optical communication tools like OPALS use focused laser
energy to reach data rates between 10 and 1,000 times higher
than current space communications, which rely on radio
portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Because the space
station orbits Earth at 17,500 mph, transmitting data from
the space station to Earth requires extremely precise
targeting.  The process can be equated to a person aiming a
laser pointer at the end of a human hair 30 feet away and
keeping it there while walking.

To achieve this extreme precision during this initial
demonstration, OPALS locked onto a laser beacon located at
the Optical Communications Telescope Laboratory ground
station at the Table Mountain Observatory in Wrightwood,
California.  It then began to modulate the beam from its 2.5-
watt, 1,550-nanometer laser to transmit the video.  The
entire transmission lasted 148 seconds and reached a maximum
data transmission rate of 50 megabits per second.  It took
OPALS 3.5 seconds to transmit each copy of the +ACI-Hello
World+ACEAIg- video message.  By comparison the same message would
have taken more than 10 minutes using traditional downlink
methods.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Heather Embee, KB3TZD,
in Berwick Pennsylvania.

The Optical Payload for Lasercomm Science Project Office is
based at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena,
California where the instrument was built.  It was taken to
the space station on April 20th aboard SpaceX's Dragon cargo
spacecraft.  You can see the animation of this experiment at
