Amateur Radio Reports on GOBA Bikers:

E-mail Print PDF
Final preparations are in the works for this year's Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure in Northwest Ohio. Starting June 20, an estimated 2,700 bicyclists will begin pedaling their way through a week of vacation fun. It's billed as the "largest bicycle ride in the world." Once again, amateur radio is pleased to be the exclusive emergency communications provider for the event. Members of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service and radio clubs along the route will keep watchful eyes on the participants for their safety. They will also update event organizers as the riders take in some of the best scenery and attractions Northwest Ohio has to offer. "GOBA could not function without amateur radio. When we have messages, they usually are sent simultaneously to multiple persons at many locations. The amateurs do this with ease and great reliability. I can't praise them enough," said GOBA Director Julie Van Winkle. Donating their time and using some very expensive gear, the hams will utilize a ring of repeaters around the course to maintain communications.

My children had a great day with amateur radio today, without me. Their school, Castor Valley Elementary School, had been selected to be a school contact with the International Space Station (ISS), NA1SS.
I had to work, but my wife, Ginny, attended and told me the event was excellent.  There were a group of three amateurs, I was told, talking to the students and operating the station using Greg’s call VA3ITB. The school gym was filled with the children from grades 1 and up, as well as with parents . The local CTV News Ottawa team were there too.  Ginny told me the audio was very good  and everyone could hear clearly in the gym.

Details on the event, as well as the children’s questions are here.  Unfortunately, I cannot find anything posted on the CTV Ottawa website, although it was on the local TV news.

Thanks to all amateurs, as well as the astronauts, for making these school contacts wonderful and educational events.

Meizu M8 gets English-language video review

E-mail Print PDF
The Meizu M8 has been caught on camera plenty of times before, but we cant recall seeing an English-language version until now. One tester at MP4 Nation has managed to get some hands-on time with the unabashed iPhone doppelganger, and calls the audio and video playback quality a disappointment, especially given the powerful Samsung ARM CPU inside.
