MY DX SUMMIT – med nya möjligheter – öppnade idag

Från och med 10:00 UTC idag, 21 november, har DX SUMMIT startat den nya sajten MY DX SUMMIT med nya möjligheter, alltför många för att räkna upp här.

Bland annat kan man, efter att ha skrivit in sin egen lokatorruta, direkt få en utbredningsprognos från VoACAP, genom att klicka på anropssignalen till ett rapporterat DX, se skärmbilden.

Amateur Radio Volunteers on Alert in Mammoth New York Snowfall’s Aftermath

Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) volunteers are themselves still digging out from several days of unprecedented snowfall in Upstate New York. The severe weather already has been blamed for at least a dozen deaths. Western New York Section Emergency Coordinator Joe Tedesco, KC2DKP, said ARES volunteers have activated a net and are on alert in case they’re needed.

Amateur Radio Volunteers Turn Out En Masse to Support Chicago Marathon

A huge turnout of Amateur Radio volunteers supported communications on October 12 for the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon and its 2000 volunteer medical teams. For the first time this year, the Amateur Radio volunteers also shadowed the nine triage units that attended to runners within Grant Park, the marathon’s finish line. The hams communicated with the ambulance service, if further medical support was needed. Some of the 120 radio amateurs taking part in the event ended up walking as many as nine miles just within the park during their volunteer stints.

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.

RIP
