RESCUE RADIO:  HAM RADIO FACES TYPHOON HAIYAN

Upward of 10,000 or more may have lost their lives when
monster Typhoon Haiyan also known as Typhoon Yolanda hit the
central Philippines on Friday, November 8th.  Numerous
others were injured and at least nine million people were
affected in some way by the monster storm.  Amateur Radio
Newsline's Jim Meachen, ZL2BHF, is in Nelson, New Zealand
with a summary of what's known so far about ham radio's part
in post typhoon relief:

--

For more than a week the aftermath of monster Typhoon
Haiyan, rated at Category 5, has seen many lives lost,
people injured, widespread damage, despair and desperation.

The death toll has been put at 2,000 or so officially, even
though estimates have been much higher.  A saving grace in
the disaster is that the super-storm missed more populated
areas like Manila, was fast-moving and authorities were able
to evacuate some low lying areas.

In its aftermath, priority is being given to the immediate
essentials of power, communications, shelter and food.  This
is followed by clean water, sanitation and disease control.
But it's in the area of communications where ham radio is
doing its part.

Ramon Anquilan, DU1UGZ, of the Philippines Amateur Radio
Association or PARA says that in preparation for the typhoon
that its Ham Emergency Radio Operator or HERO network was
activated early.  He reports that HERO stations using High
Frequency and VHF have been relaying vital messages helping
rescue and relief authorities, and their communities.
DU1UGZ says that in every major area hit by the typhoon, and
elsewhere in the archipelago, the HERO network was in
action.

Hams are providing communications at Tacloban, Eastern
Samar, Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental islands, Siquijor, Palo,
Bantayan, Tagbilaran, Dumaguete, Panay, Roxas, and many more
places.  This includes signals into the capital city of
Manila.  Primary typhoon emergency relief communications is
taking place on the frequency of 7.095 MHz and hams within
radio range but not involved in relief efforts are being
asked to stay clear of this frequency for the moment.

Jim Linton, VK3PC, is the Chairman of the International
Amateur Radio Union Region 3 Disaster Communications
Committee.  He says that these individuals should be
commended for their efforts.

Quoting VK3PC:  "They have transceivers that are mostly
basic, and as yet don't seem to have the deserved
recognition from the authorities and the non-government aid
organizations who used them,"

This not the first time HERO stations have been involved in
providing emergency communications.  Over the years there
been many disasters in the Philippines, including
earthquakes, floods and mudslides, but none on the scale of
the current Typhoon Haiyan.

Philippines President Benigno Aquino visited Tacloban City
where almost all buildings were lost as tidal surges came
through its streets.  He pledged that local authorities are
to house about 45,000 families and give them food.
President Aquino said he was lost for words to adequately
describe the enormity of disaster affecting 36 provinces. He
has declared the situation to be a national calamity.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Jim Meachen, ZL2BHF, in
Nelson, New Zealand.

--

An international relief effort is now under way with rescue
workers struggling to reach some remote areas.  And once
again, the frequency of 7.095 MHz is being used for post
typhoon emergency relief and hams world wide are being asked
that be kept clear at this time.

Also, Google has set up an on-line Person Finder page where
you can request information about someone in the typhoons
area of leave information about a person that you might
have.  It's on the web at google.org/personfinder/2013-
yolanda.  How long this service will be available is not
known.  (VK3PC, KB7TBT, Published news reports)

RADIO LAW:  INDIA FISHERMEN WANT HAM RADIO AND GPS GEAR

The Deccan Chronicle of India says that what are known as
traditional fishermen want the right to use amateur radio
with both free ham gear and GPS.  This as a communications
safety net when they venture out to see.

The newspaper says that these fishermen have not found any
truly affordable and reliable electronic method to send or
receive communication while fishing in deep sea, especially
when they face severe cyclonic storm.  As such, they are
forced to rely on what they term as unreliable mobile phones
with no guarantee of signals reaching destination or back-up
power to keep them operating.

A large number of these fishermen venture 200 miles or more
from the shore for several days at a time.  Their only way
to communicate their location or safety to their family are
the unreliable mobile telephones they have now.

Because of this, fishermen have been demanding the state
government provide them with amateur radio gear and GPS
equipment at a subsidy as they cannot afford to purchase
this equipment on their own.  They say that if they are
equipped with amateur radio it will help to communicate to
get weather updates, find their location at sea and receive
directions as to which way they should proceed to avoid
impending danger.

Currently some 70,000 fishermen from several villages along
India's coast are awaiting the response from the government
on their demand.  The president of the District Fisherman
Welfare Association is quoted in the article as saying that
when communication network fails during the storm, fishermen
find no source of information unless they are equipped with
ham radio and GPS to help them reach shore safely.

The question of licensing was not touched on in the news
article.  You can read more at tinyurl.com/india-fishing-ham-

HAM RADIO IN SPACE:  ISS EXPEDITION 37 BRINGS OLYMPIC TORCH
HOME

The International Space Station Expedition 37 crew has
returned safely to Earth bringing with it the Olympic torch
that flew to the ISS with the Expedition 38 crew.  Those
returning with the torch were Russian Commander Fyodor
Yurchikhin, RN3FI; American Astronaut Karen Nyberg and
European Space Agency Astronaut Luca Parmitano, KF5KDP.  The
torch will be used to light the Olympic flame when the
Winter Olympics open in Sochi, Russia.  Ironically the three
returning space farers made the trip back to Kazakhstan in
the same spacecraft that ferried them to the ISS last May.

DX UP FRONT:  LACCADIVES TO BE ON NOVEMBER 20 TO DECEMBER 10

In DX up front, while short notice, permission has just been
granted by India's Ministry of Telecommunications for a nine
member team to activate the Laccadive Islands between
November 20th and December 10th.  The group plans to operate
from Agatti Island with the callsign VU7AG with three high
power stations running CW, SSB and RTTY.

Also the call VU7KA has been issued for demonstration
purposes for use on Kavaratti Island. This call will be used
only briefly when team members make presentations to the
local administration to help to educate them about amateur
radio.

Given the short notice, the team is working hard in getting
things organized and is looking to be on the air for at
least fourteen days.  More is on the web at vu7ag.info

ENFORCEMENT:  NEW MEXICO RESIDENT FINED $25,000 FOR
INTERFERENCE TO POLICE

Operating on a police department frequency without a license
is going to cost a New Mexico resident $25,000.  Amateur
Radio Newsline's Norm Seeley has the details:

--

The FCC has affirmed a $25,000 Forfeiture Order issued to
Estevan J. Gutierrez of Las Vegas, New Mexico.  This for
what the regulatory agency terms his willful and repeated
violation of Sections 301 and 333 of the Communications Act
by his operation on a frequency without authorization, and
his willful and malicious interference with licensed
operations by an emergency service.

On September 1, 2011, the Enforcement Bureaus San Diego
Office issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture
in the amount of twenty-five thousand dollars to Gutierrez
for operation, without FCC authorization on 159.150 MHz.
This is a frequency licensed to the Las Vegas, New Mexico,
Police Department.  He was also accused of willful and
malicious interference with the Police Departments
operations on that frequency.

In response to the NAL, Gutierrez did not deny the
violations.  He did however request cancellation or
reduction of the forfeiture amount based on his inability to
pay.

But in its decision to affirm the full $25,000 amount the
FCC noted that Guiterrez produced no documentation to
support his claim of an inability to pay.  As such he was
given the customary 30 days from the November 7th release of
the forfeiture order to pay the amount in full.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, Im Norm Seeley, KI7UP, in
Scottsdale, Arizona.

--

If Gutierrez fails to comply within the allotted time the
case may be referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for
further enforcement.

RADIO LAW:  FCC REFORM - WALDEN PRAISES WHEELER

House Communications Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden,
W7EQI, of Oregon supports new FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's
move to study FCC reform proposals by Congress with a report
due on his desk by year's end.  But the subcommittee
chairman still wants action on other bills he has proposed
that would implement some of those reforms.

In a news release Walden is quoted as saying that he
welcomes Chairman Wheeler's openness to looking at ways to
improve transparency and accountability for the American
people and those that have business before the commission.
Walden went on to say that in the meantime, we will continue
working to reach bipartisan agreement on the FCC Process
Reform Act, and similarly hope that the Senate will soon
take up the FCC Consolidated Reporting Act, which was
unanimously approved by the House this summer.

The Consolidated Reporting Act has supporters on both sides
of the aisle.  Though it does have some Democratic opponents
it is expected to most likely to pass both the House and
Senate.  As its name suggests, it would consolidate eight
FCC annual reports to Congress into a single biennial
report.


The Process Reform Act prospects are somewhat less bright,
although it did pass out of the Energy & Commerce Committee
on promises to work with Democrats on some of their issues.
This measure would put shot clocks on FCC decisions and
would limit the conditions the FCC could put on media
mergers.  This is an aspect that Democrats are not likely to
support. (Media World)

RADIO LAW:  SENATE COMMERCE TO LOOK AT PATENT TROLLS

The Senate Commerce Committee is looking into patent trolls.
The issue is of interest to radio as several ownership
groups are fighting patent infringement allegations from
DigiMedia over digital music storage and playback
technology.

The Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety and
Insurance held its hearing for November 7th to examine the
impact of demand letters from so-called "patent assertion
entities" on small businesses, consumers and tech firms.
The hearing w considered whether legislation is needed to
provide increased protection for these individuals and
groups.

Government and other experts estimate that some patent
trolls can send upward of thousands of demand letters to
businesses with threats of litigation for alleged patent
infringement and include a demand for payment. Many small
business pay off, even if they haven't violated any patents
as doing so is usually less expensive than fighting it out
in a court of law.  (RW)

RADIO LAW:  SPOKANE RADIO STATION HIT BY COPPER THIEVES

Moody Broadcasting station KMBI AM on 1330 kHz in Spokane,
Washington has been knocked off the air by copper thieves.
The theft was noticed Sunday morning, November 3rd when
station employees found that one of the tower monitors was
out and called police.   Further investigation by an
employee revealed numerous cables had been stripped from the
tower.  News reports quote the Spokane County Sheriff's
Office as saying that it would cost the station thousands of
dollars to rewire and get back on the air.  KMBI has an FM
operation on 107.9 MHz that was not affected.  (B&C)

SWL NEWS:  FLORIDA SHORTWAVE STATION TO REOPEN

Look for a big signal returning to the international
shortwave bands.  This as one of the United States major
transmission facilities comes back to life.  Amateur Radio's
Stephan Kinford, N8WB, has the details:

--

A Florida-based shortwave facility, formerly owned by Family
Radio, will soon be back on the air.  This following a sales
agreement with another United States based international
broadcaster that will close its own smaller Florida
shortwave transmission site.

WYFR in Okeechobee, Florida was founded by evangelist Harold
Camping.  He used to broadcast Christian programming to an
international audience but it turned off its transmitters
last June.  Now comes word that Family Stations Inc. will
sell WYFR to Radio Miami International, which currently
operates station WRMI.

Once the transaction is completed Family Radio programming
for the Caribbean and South America will return to shortwave
via the Okeechobee site.  Radio Miami's programming
currently aired on WRMI will then switch over to the
Okeechobee facility.  In its announcement WRMI stated that
the station will also carry programs for other international
broadcasters, including Pan American Broadcasting's Radio
Africa network.

As a result of this transaction, WRMI's 50 kilowatt
transmission site in Miami will close, and its call letters
will be moved to Okeechobee.  The latter is claimed to be
the largest shortwave station in the United States by number
of transmitters and antennas, according to the WRMI
announcement.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Stephen Kinford, N8WB,
in Wadsworth, Ohio.

The exact date for the switchover to the Okeechobee has yet
to be announced.  (RW)

HAM RADIO IN SPACE:  ART AND HAM RADIO IN DEEP SPACE

Students at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, Japan are
planning to send a sculpture called Artsat2 Despatch along
with an amateur radio payload into deep space.  This to take
place sometime in mid 2014.

The sculpture, which is 50 by 50 by 45 cm was created at the
university using a 3D Printer.  The ham radio portion of the
payload will consist of a CW beacon in the 435 MHz band
using an omni-directional antenna.

The sculpture and ham radio gear are planned to launch as a
secondary payload along with the primary asteroid explorer
Hayabusa 2.  Hayabusa 2 will be making a round-trip to the C-
type asteroid 1999 JU3 arriving in mid 2018.

For hams here on Earth this mission should provide the
ultimate in DX reception challenge, especially when at its
maximum distance of two million miles from Earth.

exploration exercise is on the web at tinyurl.com/ARTSAT-

RADIO FROM SPACE:  ESA GOCE SPACE FERRARI DEORBITS

The European Space Agency's GOCE satellite has entered the
Earth's atmosphere, on Sunday evening, November 10th U.S.
time burning up in the process.  Early estimates suggested
any surviving debris is likely to have fallen somewhere
along its polar flight path through East Asia and the
Western Pacific to Antarctica.

The GOCE mission was operating in an extremely low orbit of
about 140 miles above mother Earth.  This was among the
lowest of any scientific satellite and required constant use
of its novel electric ion engine to stay aloft.  In mid-
October its fuel reserves were exhausted so its descent into
the atmosphere and burn-up was expected.  .

Dubbed the "Ferrari of Space" because of its streamlined
looks, GOCE is the first E-S-A bird to make an uncontrolled
re-entry in more than two and a half decades.  In its final
days on-orbit several news outlets suggested the public
track at the demise of GOCE at the n2yo.com website.  (ESA,

EXTRATERRESTRIAL HAPPENINGS:  COMET ISON UPDATE

Looking skyward, the latest photo of comet ISON taken by
NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows it to still be intact.
Given the fact that ISON's closest approach to the sun is
not until November 28th its really not known if ISON will
survive this solar encounter or if its nucleus might
disintegrate.

According to NASA, ISON's solid nucleus is uncertain in its
latest image because it is still fairly small.  The space
agency says that if the nucleus were to disintegrate, the
space telescope would probably detect evidence of multiple
fragments.

In the Hubble photo, the comet's coma currently looks
greenish-blue because of gas, while the tail is reddish
because of dust flowing off the nucleus.  NASA explains that
the tail develops as dust particles are forced away from the
nucleus by the pressure of sunlight.

ISON is also known as the "Christmas Comet" because it will
make its closest approach to Earth on December 28th.  On
that day, ISON will travel within 39.9 million miles of
planet Earth.  (Science Recorder, NASA)

THAT FINAL ITEM:  INDIA EXPERIMENTAL APRS BALLOON PAYLOAD
RETURNED

And finally this week, a follow up to an earlier story
regarding a ham radio floater balloon out of India.  Here's
Don Wilbanks, AE5DW:

--

The payload of the Indian amateur radio APRS balloon
launched on October 13th has been successfully retrieved.
It was returned to Dhruva Space on November 3rd after it was
found about 27 miles off the coast of Gangoli, Karnataka on
October 15th by the sailors of on a fishing boat.

The balloon had been launched from the Indian Institute of
Astrophysics in Bangalore and drifted into the Arabian Sea.
Ham radio operators in India, the Middle East and Africa
were able to track the APRS signal, containing real time
location, altitude and other operating conditions of the
flight, for over 370 miles.

I'm Don Wilbanks, AE5DW.

--

The return of the balloon payload was made possible thanks
to the cooperation of hams that tracked its travels from
launch to landing.
