Astronautbesök och amatörradio på teknikdag i Växjö centrum

Allra mest intresse tilldrog sig ett kemiexperiment som innehöll uppskjutning at kolsyreraketer. Detta experiment hanterades av vår ende astronaut, Christer Fuglesang (SA0AFS), som en uppstart av en astronautkonferens som ska anordnas i Växjö nästa år.

Sven, SM5OIR, har gått ur tiden

Sven var en av våra mer aktiva radioveteraner. Han både hördes på radion i enskilda QSO-n, Ringar och Bulletiner och syntes på loppisar och vid andra radioträffar. Var man osäker på vem han var så bar han alltid sin keps med anropssignalen på.

Sven kommer att begravas den 27/11 kl 11.00 i Yttergrans kyrka.

Det har blivit så tyst; vi saknar dig Sven.

South African 5 MHz Research Project Sees Unexpected Results

A 5 MHz propagation research project in South Africa has encountered some unexpected results regarding near-vertical incidence skywave (NVIS) propagation on that band. The project is a joint venture between the South African Radio League (SARL) and the Kempton Park Amateur Radio Technical Society, where one 5 MHz beacon has been installed. An interesting, but tentative, finding was inconsistent NVIS propagation test results. NVIS takes advantage of skywave propagation for short-distance communication, especially on the lower end of the HF spectrum.
