FCC Reroutes Broadband Over Powerlines:

E-mail Print PDF
WASHINGTON: The provision of broadband over power lines is back in the chute at the Federal Communications Commission after emerging from a court challenge leveled by ham radio operators. The commission is seeking further comments on a revision of the rules for BPL it set forth nearly five years ago. One point of contention from the hams involved the measurement procedure used in the original BPL tests. The American Radio Relay League challenged the methodology in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and won a remand last year. The ARRL was concerned about interference from BPL, which theoretically would provide broadband access through regular electrical outlets. Part of the court's remand was based on claims by the ARRL that the commission "redacted" the studies upon which it based its BPL rules. Consequently, the FCC placed unedited staff measurement studies, completed in Allentown, Pa., in May, 2003, in the record. The FCC said it also provided more information about why it used the methodology in question, as well as newer studies backing it up.

Sands Contest Group

Morecambe Bay at sunset

Morecambe Bay at sunset

I recently stumbled across the blog of the Sands Contest Group.  This seems to be an active UK amateur radio contest group who run special events, use Elecraft transceivers and experiment with antennas (or aerials!).  This is a good blog, but it is all the more interesting for me as the group is located where I grew up. The pictures of the Kent estuary, near Arnside, remind me of when I would go there to fish for flounder.

Pity I had not found this blog last year when I returned with my family to spend a vacation with my mother.  Next time I head back to the Morecambe area I will be trying to meet up with this group.

Besides the blog (which is now on my blogroll) the group also has a website at http://www.m0scg.org.uk/.

Bushfire Radio Operator Recognition Day for February 2010:

E-mail Print PDF
February 7, 2010 is the first anniversary of the disastrous fires in Victoria where 13 major fires burnt 352,686 hectares. 173 lives were lost, over 2000 homes destroyed, countless stock killed, kilometers of fences, sheds and wildlife. The fires continued to burn in the area until March, when fire fighting efforts along with cooler weather and rain allowed the fires to be brought under control. The Yarra Valley Amateur Radio Group members were impacted significantly by the fires. Members homes were lost, the club room grounds were burnt and the club lost our communications trailer. Fortunately the club rooms were saved by a neighbor. Amateur Radio played a significant role in providing communications operators to emergency organisations post the fires, providing 1000's of hours of operating along with many other technical services. This is an oportunity for all amateurs to recognise the service given.

Solar Activity is Picking Up:

E-mail Print PDF
The current solar cycle (24) has been pretty boring, but a new sunspot -- 1035 -- is growing rapidly and now is seven times wider than Earth. Solar astronomers are predicting it could grow to be the largest sunspot of the year. There's not been a lot of competition for the biggest sunspot, though: for 259 days (or 74 percent) of 2009, the sun has been spotless. But maybe the (solar) tide is turning. There's been other action recently besides the new sunspot. A long-duration C4-class solar flare erupted this morning at 0120 UT from around the sunspot, which hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) towards Earth. (See below for image of the CME that blasted off the sun on Dec. 14) Observers at high-latitude could see some aurora action when the CME arrives on or about Dec. 18th. Keep cheering; maybe the sun will come out of its doldrums.
