RADIO POLITICS:  IARU ADMINISTRATIVE COUNCIL PLANS FOR WRC-
15

The Administrative Council of the International Amateur
Radio Union has released the minutes of its annual meeting
on September 27th and 28th in Bulgaria.  Bill Pasternak,
WA6ITF, is in the newsroom with the details:
--

The meeting began with the Administrative Council reviewing
the International Amateur Radio Union's positions on each of
the 2015 World Radiocommunications Conference agenda items
that relate to amateur radio or may have an impact on
amateur radio.  The Council then made a number of
modifications to the paper related to justifications for the
IARU positions which in turn were to be forwarded to all
member-societies.

The gathering then reviewed the participation of IARU at the
upcoming 2015 World Radiocommunications Conference after
which President Tim Ellam, VE6SH announced the members of
the team that will represent the organization at the WRC
2015 gathering.  The Council also adopted a system to
provide more efficient remote monitoring of certain ITU
meetings that may impact on amateur radio.

In other actions, the Council expressed its support for a
Region 1 effort to obtain a European Conference of Postal
and Telecommunications Administrations or CEPT proposal for
a number of post-WRC-15 conference agenda items.  These
include worldwide harmonization of 160 meters and 6 meters
as well as an allocation at 3.4 GHz.

The Council also adopted the IARU Emergency
Telecommunications Guide for use by member-societies to
strengthen amateur radio disaster preparedness, response and
mitigation.  It also approved various strategies to promote
the role of amateur radio in these activities to government
and non-government organizations as well as to the general
public

In relation to ham radio space based operations, the Council
expressed the importance of obtaining the ITU Advance
Publication Information numbers from administrations for
satellite projects operating in the amateur and amateur
satellite bands.  This in order to keep track of operational
satellites to help in frequency coordination and for
resolving interference issues.

This is only a part of what transpired at the meeting.  The
full minutes are available at www dot iaru-r1 dot org.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF,
in Los Angeles.

--

The Administrative Council is responsible for the policy and
management of the IARU and consists of the three IARU
international officers and two representatives from each of
the three IARU regional organizations.   It's next scheduled
in-person meeting will be held in Indonesia, in October,
2015 in conjunction with the IARU Region 3 Conference.

NAMES IN THE NEWS:  RADIO AMATEUR ONE OF THREE RESEARCHERS
TO WIN THE NOBEL PRIZE IN CHEMESTRY

A ham radio operator is one of three scientists named by the
Royal Swedish Academy to receive the Nobel Prize in
Chemistry.

The Stanford University news says that William Moerner, who
holds the call WN6I  and who is a chemistry professor at
Stanford will share the award for his work in high-
resolution nanoscopy with fellow researchers Eric Betzig of
Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Stefan Hell of the Max
Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Germany.

The article notes that the ability to dive deeper and deeper
into human biology and visualize the inner workings of cells
at a molecular level is central to modern research and
medicine.  It also quotes Stanford President John L.
Hennessy as saying that the path-breaking work of Professor
Moerner and his colleagues has made a major contribution to
the ability to observe molecules at the smallest scales,
opening up new possibilities for discovery in areas ranging
from disease management to drug development.  More on the
Nobel Prize in Chemistry winners is at tinyurl.com/nobel-
2014-chemestry.

The winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics was also announced
and we will have that story later on in this weeks newscast.

HAM RADIO IN SPACE:  DATE ANNOUNCED FOR 4M-LXS LUNAR HAM
RADIO MISSION

The launch of the China's 4M LXS fly-by ham radio moon
mission is now slated for liftoff in a narrow window around
17:59 UTC on Thursday, October 23rd with the Lunar flyby is
to occur on Tuesday, October 28 at 00:33 UTC.

Ghislain Ruy, LX2RG reports via the Southgate News that the
4M LXS Lunar flyby amateur radio payload departed Luxembourg
for China's Satellite Launch Center on Sunday, October 5th.
Once there it will be transferred to the launch vehicle.

LX2RG says that the lifetime of 4M LXS ham radio payload is
an unknown.  That it may be as short as 100 hours ounce it
reaches the Moon but could extend for some weeks if the host
spacecrafts attitude is favorable.

As reported last August by AMSAT-UK, China is planning to
send the lunar orbiter around the Moon carrying, among other
experiments, a battery powered ham radio payload known as 4M
LXS.  The amateur radio system will transmit a JT65B signal
on 145.990 MHz which can be decoded by radio amateurs here
on Earth using the free WSJT software.

LX2RG also reports that the ham radio team is currently in
the process of setting up its ground station network.  They
are especially looking for southern hemisphere stations as
they will be very much needed to provide first hand reports
for the early hours of the mission.  Those wishing to
volunteer should e-mail ruy (at) luxspace (dot) lu with the
words 4M Amateur in the subject line.

This flight is one of several planned as a precursor to
China's future Chang'e 5 lander mission which is hopes will
land safely on the Moon, collect samples and return them
safely back to Earth.  (Southgate, LX2RG)

RESCUE RADIO:  HAM RADIO IN THE YUKON WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS

A pair of radio amateurs in the Yukon Territory recently
used ham radio to get information from a Search and Rescue
campsite to the command center in one of those situations
where all else failed.

The situation was that Terry Hauff, VY1MAP, was a member
of a Search and Rescue team that was on an active hunt for a
missing teenager.  The command center they had setup was
approximately 22 miles north of the city of Whitehorse at
Lake Laberge.  The location put them out of cellphone
coverage and the satellite phone they had with them was not
working.  As such, there was no way to call for additional
resources or send status reports.  Enter ham radio.

At this point VY1MAP used his mobile ham station to contact
Ray Fugard VY1RF, in Whitehorse using a local 2 meter
repeater that covered both areas.  During that QSO Hauff was
able to pass some important traffic to and from the Search
and Rescue command center.  Soon after the missing young man
was found and all ended well.  (RAC, YARA, VE3XU)

RESCUE RADIO: VOIP HURRICANE WATCH NET CHANGES

Some changes and non-changes are coming to an important
rescue radio information net.  Here are the details.

While much of the U.S. returns to Standard Time at 2 am
local on Sunday, November 2nd the VoIP Skywarn Hurricane
Prep Net won't make any time change.  Because of this, in
both Arizona and for those stations that use UTC, starting
with the November 8th gathering the start time will be one
hour later.  All the rest of the U.S. time zones that
observe Daylight Savings Time will not see a change in the
start time for the net.

There will be a single one exception.  On Saturday December
6th the start time for the net that night only will be one
hour earlier beginning immediately at the conclusion of
Skywarn Recognition Day activities.

Also from December, through May the net will meet only on
the first Saturday of the month.  Weekly nets will resume in
June, 2015, when the new hurricane season begins.  (Daryl
Stout, WX1DER)

ENFORCEMENT:  MARRIOTT TO PAY $600,000 FOR BLOCKING WI FI

The FCC says that Marriott International Corporation will
pay a $600,000 forfeiture.  This, to resolve an
investigation by that agency into whether a hotel's
employees blocked customers from using their personal Wi-Fi
networks and then charged them to use the hotel network.
Amateur Radio Newsline's Stephan Kinford, N8WB, has more:

--

The FCC claims that employees at Marriott's Gaylord Opryland
Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee
disabled Wi-Fi networks established by consumers at its
conference facilities. They then allegedly charged guests
from $250 to $1,000 per device for access to the hotel
network.

The investigation began after a March 2013 on complaint from
someone who attended a function at the resort.  According to
the FCC, that person alleged that the hotel was jamming
mobile hotspots.  The FCC says its investigation found that
employees used features of a Wi-Fi monitoring system at the
Gaylord Opryland to contain and or de- authenticate guest
created Wi-Fi hotspot access points in the conference
facilities.

In addition to paying the fine, the FCC says that Marriott
must institute a compliance plan and file compliance and
usage reports with the regulatory agency every three months
for the next three years.  These reports must include
information documenting any use of access point containment
features at any United States property that Marriott manages
or owns.

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

--

While Marriott apparently will pay the fine, the company
contends that it believes the actions of employees were
lawful.  It adds that it will continue to encourage the FCC
to pursue a rulemaking in order to eliminate the ongoing
confusion resulting from action taken and to assess the
merits of its underlying policy.  (FCC, published news

ENFORCEMENT: PUERTO RICO COMPANY FINED $25000 FOR
INTERFEREING WITH FAA WEATHER RADAR

A follow-up on a story we first reported earlier this year.
The FCC has affirmed a penalty of $25,000 against CMARR,
Incorporated of San Juan, Puerto Rico.  This for its alleged
willful interference to with Federal Aviation Administration
weather radar in San Juan, by operating radio transmitters
without a license.

This past June 24th the Enforcement Bureau's San Juan Office
issued the Notice of Apparent Liability to CMARR for
operating an intentional radiator without a license.  To
date, CMARR has not filed a response to the proposed fine.
Based on the information before it, the FCC now says the
proposed fine stands and has given the company the customary
30 days to pay or to file an appeal.

In its October 1st order affirming the fine, the FCC noted
that given the risk to public safety created by CMARR's
unlicensed operations, and the fact that the company had
already received a warning for similar violations, that
these actions warrant a significant penalty.  (FCC)

NEW GEAR:  UNDER $13 UHF HT BEING SOLD INTO THE UK

The price of a bare bones entry level 70 centimeter hand
held has fallen to a new low.  At least it has over in the
United Kingdom where you can how get one for about 8 Pounds
which equates to around $13 in United States currency.

The radio in question is the Baofeng/Pofung model BF-888S
that covers 400 to 470 MHz that is being sold on eBay by one
retailer for just a few pennies under the $13 mark and
shipped to the purchaser from Singapore.  Unlike the
slightly more expensive UV-3R dual band series, the BF888S
is limited to only16 programmable channels within the 70
centimeter frequency range.  However it does come with a
1500 milliamp hour battery, a battery saver function, an
emergency alarm, VOX function, a built-in flashlight and is
computer programmable.

So as to ask a rhetorical question:  Who ever thought we
hams would be around to see what amounts to a throw away
when it breaks, HT.  (Southgate)

NAMES IN THE NEWS:  THREE RESEARCHER AWARDED NOBEL PRIZE IN
PHUSICS FOR DEVELOPING BLUE LED

Three researchers, one from the United States and two from
Japan, have been awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics.
This for their roles in developing light emitting diodes
that produce a blue glow.

Isamu Akasaki, with Meijo University and Nagoya University,
Hiroshi Amano, of Nagoya University, and Shuji Nakamura,
with the University of California at Santa Barbara
California are the 20 14 recipients.  They will be sharing
the $1.1 million prize for choosing materials and developing
the techniques that have made possible the blue toned Light
Emitting Diode.

The trio's collective breakthrough have led to lamps that
last for decades and consume far less power than either
incandescent or fluorescent bulbs to provide the same amount
of light.  The blue LEDs have made possible today's flat-
panel, full-color computer monitors and TV screens, and are
used in lasers for Blu-ray DVD players and higher density
data storage using Blu-Ray DVD units.

It was also noted that Blue-emitting LED's combined with
storage batteries and solar charging panels could eventually
allow more than 1 billion people worldwide to move from no
lighting at all to electric lighting without using local gas
or diesel generators or regional power plants to provide it.

The three researchers will receive their award at a ceremony
in Stockholm, Sweden, on December 10th.  (Nobelprize.org,

WORLDBEAT:  SOME FISHY INTERFERENCE FROM DOWN-UNDER

Turning to news from around the world, here's one might call
some fishey business down-under.  Amateur Radio Newsline's
Jim Meachen, ZL2BHF, has the rest of the story:

--

Recently Christchurch, New Zealand radio inspectors were
involved with a commercial interference case affecting a
major microwave link in the upper South Island.

The microwave link's operator was able to identify that the
system was only being affected when the same fishing vessel
crossed its path in the Cook Strait.  This led the
inspectors to realize that the only possible way to
determine the interference source was to position themselves
on a hilltop overlooking the Strait.

Using a microwave dish and sufficient gain they were able to
see the interfering signals radiating from one particular
fishing boat.  By utilizing the Automatic Identifying System
vessel tracking website the position was verified.

It was now obvious that the fishing boat was the cause of
the interference because the radio frequency signature of
the noise looked to be very similar to the S Band radar
aboard most such vessels.  What was not known was why it was
emitting these spurious signals.

The first order of business was for New Zealand's
telecommunications administrator Radio Spectrum Management
calling the  fishing company and requesting that the S Band
radar on that vessel be turned off.  Immediately the noise
ceased.  A subsequent letter sent to the fishing company led
to the S Band radar's magnetron final tube was replaced.
Yes, it was just a rather expensive final amplifier tube,
gone bad.

Nelson, New Zealand.

THAT FINAL ITEM:  ITS TIME FOR JOTA 2014

And finally this week, the 2014 Scouting Jamboree on the
Air, known by its acronym JOTA will take place the weekend
of October 18th and the 19th.  Amateur Radio Newsline's Mark
Abramovich, NT3V, brings us the details:

--

This is the single-biggest annual international Scouting
event. And, the numbers back up the claim.

"Seven-hundred-thousand Scouts get on the air from 150
countries across 12,000 stations and nearly 22,000 amateur
radio operators. It's a big deal!"

That's Jim Wilson, K5ND, who's the USA national Jamboree on
the Air organizer and a member of the World Jamboree on the
Air team.

Wilson says the event gives amateur radio operators the
chance to share the brotherhood of the hobby with the
brotherhood of Scouting.

More than 300 stations already have signed up to take part
in the U.S. and there's still time to get in on the fun,
Wilson says.

"A lot of the stations that have registered this year really
fire up Saturday morning and run all day
Saturday. But there's a lot of stations, too, that are on
the air Friday evening," Wilson says.

Wilson says this is the 57th year for JOTA activity on the
bands and it also marks a first for the event - at least in
the U.S.

"This is the first year that K2BSA/1, 2, 3, 4 and so on,
will be on the air from every call sign area in the
continental USA," he says. "Here in Texas, K2BSA/5 will be
on the air from the National Scouting Museum."

Wilson says it's not a contest in the traditional sense -
but really a worldwide gathering of Scouts and their leaders
on the air, sharing things about themselves such as their
Scouting ranks, their experiences in Scouting, things like
that.

Many of the stations are set up at Scout camps or Scout
camporees.

The idea is to get the boys, and on the international side -
girls as well - talking on the air.

"What they're looking for are conversations," Wilson
explains. "It's not about making 100 contacts an hour or
something like that. It's just about getting the Scouts in
front of the microphone and having conversations.

"So, anybody can do that and we really appreciate the
amateur radio operators who are tuning across the bands,
come across somebody calling 'CQ JOTA.' Answer back, engage.
Tell 'em about when you earned Radio merit badge or when you
got your amateur radio license."

Wilson offers one caution. Be careful to follow those third-
party agreements.

"We're open to so many countries and we can get on the air
and let the Scouts get on the air use the microphone,"
Wilson advises. "But in other countries, there are
restrictions and the ARRL keeps a wonderful list of those
third-party agreements."

Wilson says you can learn more about JOTA activities or sign
up by going to K2BSA.net.

K2BSA, by the way, is the call sign awarded to the Boy
Scouts of America by the FCC.

For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Mark Abramowicz, NT3V,
in Philadelphia.

--

JOTA was first held in conjunction with the fiftieth
anniversary of Scouting and was devised by the late Les
Mitchell, G3BHK, who became a Silent Key on October 6th.  It
is now considered the largest yearly event scheduled by the
World Organization of the Scout Movement held annually and
an ongoing tribute to its creator.  You can read the story
of how it came about at tinyurl.com/jota-beginnings.  (NT3V,
