New Providence Radio Club Talks to the Stars:

E-mail Print PDF
NEW PROVIDENCE -- As the International Space Station floated hundreds of miles above the Earth Thursday, a group of children in New Providence got a chance to say hello to an astronaut on board. The New Providence Amateur Radio Club helped a group of children pose questions to Michael Barratt, a NASA flight engineer, using amateur radio technology. With an operator positioning an antenna and tracking the space station's movement on a computer, Barratt's voice boomed into the borough, describing what he saw and what he does on the space station. "It's during the nighttime here, and we are on the far side of the Earth from the sun. We can definitely see planets and stars," Barratt explained, at about 1:30 p.m. in New Providence. Barratt, also a doctor, said the six astronauts currently on board all participate in science experiments. Recently, Barratt said they grew "very special radish plants" on board. "It was wonderful to see great, big, green leaves. We really do miss green and growing plants," said Barratt, who has been on the station since March. It's the second time the club made contact with astronauts on the space station in the borough, and the fifth time in New Jersey, according to member Barry Cohen, known as K2JV on the air. NASA arranges the contact with amateur radio organizations in nine different countries, including the United States, Russia, Japan and others.

Of Dots and Dashes, Pops and Crashes:

E-mail Print PDF
User Rating: / 2
PoorBest 
I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that ham radio, besides being a really great hobby, may actually be beneficial to one's health. For some years now, I've noticed my hearing is growing duller. I no longer can hear high-pitched sounds like I used to, and it seems the most frequently used words tumbling from my mouth lately are "What'd you say?" After I retired, I decided to become a real Morse code fanatic. I've been spending a portion of each day listening to messages sent in Morse code and trying to decipher them in my head. Then I also spend some time almost every day, sitting at my radio trying to make contact with other hams, using only Morse code. Sometimes, conditions are such, with all the static crashes and assorted other forms of interference, that I have to really concentrate as hard as I can to hear signals buried in static and other signals on top of the ones I'm interested in. Frequently, it's a real challenge to pick out the dots and dashes from the pops and crashes. However, all this keen listening practice seems to have revived my hearing ability somewhat. I find I'm no longer asking "What'd he say?" as often when Dearly Beloved and I are watching TV. Also, I'm not turning the volume up as much as I used to. And from time-to-time, I even hear an occasional high-pitched sound! Not every time, but sometimes. Wow! Kind of makes me wonder if diminished hearing in the elderly might be due - at least in part - to the fact that we tend to ignore more and more stuff as we grow older, and it eventually affects our aural acuity. Maybe we're just not listening closely enough.

The Ministry of Transportation in Ontario, Canada announced on September 30 that Bill 118 concerning distracted driving will take effect on October 26, 2009. According to Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) Vice President for Public Relations Peter West, VE3HG, the new law makes it illegal for drivers to talk, text, type, dial or e-mail using handheld cell phones and other handheld communications and entertainment devices. Following a three-month period that begins October 26, the focus will be on educating drivers; police will start issuing tickets on February 1, 2010. “All two-way radios in all vehicles -- with the exception of emergency responding vehicles -- must be hands-free in three years time,” he posted on the RAC’s blog. “This news comes from the official government staffer who has been in communications with Radio Amateurs of Canada over the last year.
