With Tropical Storm Alex now Category 1 Hurricane Alex, three Amateur Radio mainstays during the Atlantic hurricane season -- WX4NHC, VoIP Hurricane Net and Hurricane Watch Net (HWN) -- activated at 8 AM EDT on Wednesday, June 30; WX4NHC is the Amateur Radio station at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Florida.

Amateur Radio Operators Provide a Critical Communications Link During Emergencies

Immediately after the Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti that killed 230,000 people, injured an estimated 300,000 more and destroyed much of Port-au-Prince, medical teams from the University of Miami Project Medishare program had sporadic communication with the United States and the nearby U.S. Naval Ship (USNS) Comfort’s Medical Treatment Facility — until teams of amateur/ham radio operators arrived, that is.

Bredband över elnätet slår ut radio

Ofcom, Office of Communication, den myndighet som reglerar radioverksamhet i Storbritannien, har upptäckt att de dosor som kopplas i vägguttagen, och som ger möjlighet till bredband över elnätet, kan slå ut radiotrafiken. De tidigare dosorna blockerade "bara" frekvensintervallet 2 - 32 MHz, men nu har nya dosor kommit som sprider störningar från 2 MHz upp till över flygradiofrekvenserna, alltså åtminstone upp till 135 MHz! Riktigt roligt (nåja!) är att dosorna dessutom går ut med mycket högre effekt än de är godkända för.

D-STAR olagligt i Frankrike !

Den radio-reglerande myndigheten i Frankrike ("franska PTS") har meddelat att D-STAR inte är tillåtet där. Man får dels inte koppla en amatörradiostation till Internet, vilket ju är en möjlighet, dels verkar man vara orolig för att trafiken kan anses vara krypterad. Naturligt nog har man reagerat kraftigt bland franska radioamatörer!
