(Billboard Cart Here) ** RESCUE RADIO: HAMS IN INDIA RESPOND TO FLOODING Hams in India have again responded as flooding hits that nation. Jeremy Boot, G4NJH, reports: -- The recent severe flooding in northern India has resulted in communication links being affected when they are most needed. Members of the Indian National Institute of Amateur Radio, Hyderabad, have been providing emergency communication facilities in the worst-affected areas of Uttarakhand state, North India. Reported operating frequencies include 7.073 and 14.160 kHz and callsigns in use include VU2JOS, VU2MCW, VU3NUG. As usual, all amateurs are urged to give priority to emergency communications regardless of any other activities on the bands. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Jeremy Boot, G4NJH, in Nottingham in the U.K.. -- More on this situation as information becomes available. (GB2RS) ** RESCUE RADIO: PHILIPPINE HAMS RESPOND TO TYPHOON GORIO Hams in the Philippines were ready when yet another tropical storm came their way. Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, in the newsroom with what we know so far: -- The Philippine Amateur Radio Association activated its Emergency Net last week in anticipation of tropical storm Gorio. At the time the typhoon was crossing the Eastern Visayas Region in the general direction of the Bicol area located at the southernmost tip of Luzon Island. The Philippine Amateur Radio Association spokesman is Ramon Anquilan DU1UGZ. He was quoted as saying that members of the Ham Emergency Radio Operations or HERO group are using 7.095 MHZ as an emergency calling frequency. As such the national society was requesting neighboring ham radio operators assist by staying clear of the frequency until the emergency net is was closed down. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Bill Pasternak, WA6ITF, in Los Angeles. -- The latest information on this severe weather event is on- line at the Philippine Amateur Radio Association website. Its in cyberspace at www.para.org.ph (PARA) ** RESCUE RADIO: LOS ANGELES DRILL INCLUDES HAM RADIO An interesting emergency communications drill on the United States West coast. This as members of California's Los Angeles County Disaster Communications Service met at its Temple Station on June 24th to practice sending data but doing so without the use of the internet and without the use of any infrastructure. Deputy Hector Figueroa, KE6VRL, is the Temple Station Systems Administrator for Communications. He says that communications was accomplished via the use of the Amateur Radio Service and the Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software. This software is capable of running on various computing platforms and operating systems making it easy to implement especially in a disaster. Figueroa says that most of the Disaster Communications Service volunteers were able to install and use the system in less than an hour's time. Most used battery power for their computers and battery powered radios to send messages during the training. These consisted of message types used in the national Incident Command System to request support, report damage, and provide health and welfare traffic. Members of the City of Rosemead staff also participated in the demonstration and training while volunteers from San Dimas, Temple City and Pasadena were on hand to practice and gain valuable experience.

(Los Angeles County Disaster Communications Service) ** RESTRUCTURING: FCC APPROVES OPENING 10 MHZ OF UHF SPECTRUM TO COMMERCIAL USE The FCC has adopted a Report and Order that will increase the Nation's supply of spectrum for flexible use services, including mobile broadband. This by opening 10 megahertz of spectrum in the bands 1915 to 1920 MHz and 1995 to 2000 MHz also known as the H Block for commercial licensing. According to its June 27th Report and order on WT Docket 12- 357 the FCC says that by enabling 10 megahertz of spectrum to be used for mobile broadband the Commission's efforts to ensure that the Nation's wireless networks have the capacity, speed and ubiquity to keep pace with consumers' expectations and ever rising demand for mobile services. The FCC also calls it a step towards meeting its obligation under the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 to license 65 megahertz, including the 10 megahertz in the H Block. This, by February of 2015. (FCC) ** RESTRUCTURING: 915-921 MHZ TO BE LICENSE EXEMPT IN UK British telecommunications regulator Ofcom has published a statement setting out its decision to release the 870 to 876 and 915 to 921 MHz spectrum bands on a license exempt basis. The released spectrum will be used by Short Range Devices and Radio Frequency Identification. A further rule making procedure on the technical details of the license exemption will follow this fall. Meantime, the adoption of 915 of 921 MHz by the pan-European CEPT agreement is said to be possible. If it were to happen it would create the only license exempt spectrum between 41 and 2400 MHz that is available world-wide. Other license exempt frequency bands for Short Range Devices and Radio Frequency Identification are only available on a regional or nation wide basis only. (Southgate, Ofcom) ** RESTRUCTURING: IMMINENT SPECTRUM SALE BRINGS TENSIONS TO A HEAD DOWN-UNDER The second attempt by Australian authorities to sell some prime spectrum in the 700 MHz band for use in expanding broadband is meeting with opposition from those who say its needed for public safety communications. Graham Kemp, VK4BB, of the WIA News has the details: -- The (Australian) federal government is resisting calls to reserve highly sought-after mobile phone spectrum for use by police and emergency services, in fact they have released a proposal suggesting it hopes to pull in more than $900 million from the sale of spectrum it could not sell earlier this year. The office of Victoria's Premier Denis Napthine accused federal Labor of "effectively selling community safety" to fix an ailing budget, while the Police Federation of Australia renewed calls for the government to earmark the spectrum in case it is needed by law enforcement during terrorist strikes and natural disasters. Previous Communications Minister Stephen Conroy issued draft directions for the Australian Communications and Media Authority to decide by September 1 on the "appropriate procedures" for allocating the unsold spectrum and said access charges would have to be at the same reserve price that failed to attract bidders during the first auction. A 30 megahertz block of the most sought-after 700MHz band of the spectrum the "waterfront property" of the cell phone industry was unsold and the government last month said the intention was that it would "be returned to the market for sale at a later date". For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Graham Kemp, VK4BB, of the WIA News in Australia. -- The Australian government feels confident that it can attract bidders but based on the last attempt to divest itself of this spectrum, it could turn out to be a hard sell. (WIA News) ** WORLDBEAT: ICASA CLARIFIES SOUTH AFRICAN LICENSING PAYMENTS The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa has informed the South African Radio League that it has now analyzed all payments for that nations amateur service licenses. It says that in 2012 some 209 radio amateurs paid the proper fee for a five year license but failed to notify the regulatory service of that fact when payment was made. This year there were an additional 34. To rectify the situation the regulatory agency says that it plans on mailing five year licenses to these hams which will be valid until 2017 and 2018 respectively. On a more negative note, ICASA says that the same inquiry revealed that 823 South African radio amateurs did not renew their licenses. As such, these licenses will be cancelled and the regulatory agency says that it will make arrangements for the urgent sealing or confiscation of the equipment if payment is not made immediately. The South African Radio League in urging hams in that nation to check their payment records to make certain that they have renewed their licenses. If not that they should do so without any further delay. (ICASA, SARL) ** BREAK 1 From the United States of America, We are the Amateur Radio Newsline, heard on bulletin stations around the world including the K9OQO repeater serving Appleton, Wisconsin. (5 sec pause here) ** ENFORCEMENT: UNLICENSED USE OF HT'S BRINGS $30,000 NAL The FCC has issued a $30,000 Notice of Apparent liability to Remel, Inc. and its corporate parent, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. This for allegedly unlawful operation of radio frequency devices on a General Mobile Radio Service frequency for more than nine years without Commission authority. Amateur Radio Newsline's Jeff Clark, K8JAC, reports: -- On June 21, 2012, Thermo Fisher filed an application for a new Public Land Mobile Radio Service license with the Commission's Wireless Telecommunications Bureau. A few weeks later July 2, 2012, Thermo Fisher filed a request for Special Temporary Authority to permit the operation of certain handheld radio transmitting equipment pending the grant of its Public Land Mobile Radio Service. In its S-T-A Request, Thermo Fisher indicated that its handheld radios were used in connection with manufacturing certain products used by the Center for Disease Control and other health care facilities. It also stated that the radios were "an essential communications link" for its factory operations and for the safety and security of its personnel. At the time, Thermo Fisher further indicated that it had operated the handheld radio transmitters for a number of years and that it discontinued their operation on June 14th, 2012, as soon as it became aware that the radios were not properly licensed. The STA was granted on July 9, 2012 under call sign WQPN622. Thermo Fisher's application for a new Public Land Mobile Radio Service license was granted on August 30, 2012 under call sign WQPW523. Because it appeared that Thermo Fisher had operated its handheld radio transmitting equipment without authorization, the Wireless Bureau referred this matter to the Enforcement Bureau for investigation and possible enforcement action. On January 30, 2013, the Enforcement Bureau's Spectrum Enforcement Division issued a letter of inquiry to Thermo Fisher, directing the company to submit a response to a series of questions relating to the unauthorized operation of the radio transmitting equipment. Thermo Fisher responded on February 27, 2013 and indicated that Remel began operating the radio transmitting equipment in approximately October 2002. Now, in issuing the $30,000 NAL, the FCC notes that the companies admit that they operated their radio transmitting equipment without Commission authorization since approximately October 2002 and continued for more than nine years, until June 14, 2012. As such the Commission finds that the companies apparently violated Section 301 of the Communications Act and Sections 1.903(a) and 95.3 of the agency's Rules by failing to obtain Commission authority to operate their radio transmitting equipment. Therefore based on the information before it the agency says that a $30,000 fine is warranted in this case. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Jeff Clark, K8JAC. -- Remel, Inc. and Thermo Fisher Scientific were given the customary thirty days to pay the proposed fine or to file an appeal. (FCC) ** ENFORCEMENT: FLORIDA UNLICENSED STATION OPERATORS ARRESTED The owner of an unlicensed radio station in Marion County Florida and an employee were taken into custody Tuesday, June 25th by federal authorities and Ocala, Florida sheriff's deputies. This following a tip about the illegal operation filed by a radio engineer from a local broadcast station. In early April, the Federal Communication Commission received information that a radio station on 97.7 FM, was operating without a license. FCC agents came to the area and T-hunted the station to a location in the city of Summerfield. They went to the property, where they saw a double-wide mobile home and a single-wide mobile home with a radio tower behind it. The station was playing Mexican music and advertising Hispanic businesses in the area. No one was home, so the agents left a warning notice and departed. However, the Property Crimes Unit of the Marion County Sheriff's Office began listening to the radio station. They also observed people entering and leaving the property. Authorities requested a search warrant, which was granted Tuesday, June 25th leading to a raid on the unlicensed broadcast facility. At that time Luis Alfredo Galindo and Juan Ramon Nieves were arrested and taken to a Sheriff's Office substation for an interview. Nieves said he was the owner of the station, for which he did not have a license but which he admitted had been in existence for about a year. He was charged under a Florida statute with operating an unlicensed radio station and was taken to the Marion County Jail. He has since been released on $5,000 bond. Galindo claimed to be employed by Nieves. He was charged with making unauthorized radio transmissions and interfering with a radio station. He was remanded to jail in lieu of $5000 bail and at airtime it's not known if he is still in custody. (RW, Other news reports) ** RESTRUCTURING: POST BROADBAND AUCTION BANDPLANNING NOT GOING WELL While it may seem hard to believe, two of the nations top communications industries are acting like hams did some forty years ago. This in relation to the use of spectrum when rules get changed to permit broadband more access to the airwaves. Amateur Radio Newsline's Skeeter Nash, N5ASH, takes a look as history seems ready to repeat itself, but this time with billions of dollars at stake: -- Shades of two meter frequency coordination in-fighting some four decades ago. This as the National Association of Broadcasters has told the FCC that it cannot reasonably employ a variable band plan for the post-incentive auction 600 MHz band. This, if it includes broadcasters and wireless carriers on co-channels and adjacent channels in neighboring markets. Soon after the FCC released its post auction plan which intermixes broadcast and wireless operators, broadcasters and some major wireless carriers teamed up to oppose it. Both said that it would cause mutual interference or reduce the amount of usable spectrum the FCC could recover. But the FCC counters by stating that this concept is the only one that will allow it flexibility to recover varying amounts of bandspace in different markets. And in another shade of ham radios bandplan fighting of the past, the National Association of Broadcasters has countered with its own so-called "Down From 51 Reversed" plan. This is kind of like the 2 meter inverted tertiary splits adopted decades ago by Southern California and a few other places that reverses the inter system uplink and downlink, but on a much broader basis. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Skeeter Nash, N5ASH -- The FCC is seeking comments on its original plan and others including the National Association of Broadcasters "Down From 51 Reversed" plan, but nobody is really happy with any form of sharing. In its recently comments the NAB said that none of the other plans adequately address the interference issue, but that the lesser of the evils would be the "Down from 51 Reversed" plan. Kind of reminds you of the past, doesn't it. (Published news reports) ** HAM HAPPENINGS: EMCOMMWEST 2013 CANCELLED There will be no EMCOMMWEST ham radio convention in 2013. So says the Board of Directors in a front page posting to the events website. According to the post, the board has been discussing the options for and fate of EMCOMMWEST 2013. It says that there have been many changes in the volunteer workforce during the past 12 months. This coupled with the small period of time between now and the traditional date of the event has led the Board to decide to forgo 2013. The Board goes on to say that circumstances leading to this decision include the loss of several key volunteers; the continued inability to draw the major vendors and manufacturers to the show and the fact that little has been accomplished to make measurable progress toward event production for this year. It goes on to say that if there is to be an EMCOMMWEST in 2014 it may require a local club to take the helm and provide the much-needed volunteer base for the event. EMCOMMWEST began in 1999 when a group of Northern Nevada amateur radio operators interested in improving emergency communications hosted the very first symposium that lead to the convention as it is today.

(EMCOMMWEST.ORG website) ** WORLDBEAT: HAM RADIO FRIEDRICHSHAFEN VIDEO NOW ON LINE Ron Moorefield, W8ILC, who just returned from this years European Ham Radio Convention in Friedrichshafen, Germany estimates that around 14,000 or so hams attended this years offering. Moorefield was there with a contingent representing the Dayton Amateur Radio Association which of coarse sponsors the annual Dayton Hamvention. While at Ham Radio, the Dayton group live streamed the three day event back to the United States and also recorded it for anyone to watch at a later date. The files have now been posted and you can see this years European amateur radio highlight at www.ustream.tv/recorded/35112685. But one suggestion. If you plan to watch all the video at once that the folks from Dayton sent back, you might want to make a big bowl of popcorn and have some cold drinks handy. That's because there is a lot there to see. Ham Radio 2013 was held June 28th to the 30th at the convention facility not far from the picturesque shores on Lake Constance in southern Germany not far from the borders with Switzerland and Austria. (W8ILC) ** VIDEO HAPPENINGS: HAM RADIO NOW PRESENTS HAM RADIO - THE CONVENTION And speaking about Europe's Ham Radio exposition, you can find out more about its inner workings in a new video produced by Gary Pearce, KN4AQ. In a one on two interview with show planner Petra Rothgerber who runs Ham Radio and Kelly Hall, K1LLY, the Dayton Hamvention's Co-chair of International Relations you can find out the two conventions differ in their planning and execution. It should be noted that Petra Rothgerber is not a radio amateur. By profession she runs trade shows. As such she explains the way in which Ham Radio is a professionally managed event. By contrast, the Dayton Hamvention is an event that's run by a dedicated corps of volunteers. So listening to the two talk and compare notes is an interesting experience to say the least. KN4AQ has titled this show Europe's Biggest Hamfest. It's Episode 84 of his Ham Radio Now series that can be viewed on- line at arvideonews.com/hrn.

The 2013 Australian Bogong High Plains Winter Trip will take place from August 5th to 9th. Amateur Radio Newsline's Stephan Kinford, N8WB, has the cool details: -- Yes that's right. We said winter because in the Southern Hemisphere it is the their winter season as a team of radio amateurs and their friends will be heading out across the snowy wilderness to ski through some of Australia's most stunning alpine landscapes. The group will be led by VK3GT, VK3FMAW and VK3SN and will venture up onto mountain plateaus which sit well over 1800 meters above sea level. Using ultra light solar powered gear, these back country skiers will be active on 40 meters each afternoon and 80 meters every evening their local time. Other High Frequency bands will be activated according to conditions. And if you happen to live in Australia, contacts will also be available over the north-eastern Victoria state 2 meter and 70 centimeter repeaters each day as well. So if you want to hear and possibly contact this down-under trekking adventure, keep an ear on 40 and 80 meters for a signal that will likely be just above the noise. Who knows: Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones to make contact.

Of coarse we are talking about WWVB, the sister station of WWV that sends out a time-precise signal every night that many clocks and wristwatches across the U.S. use to make sure they have the correct time. WWVB went on the air on July 5, 1963. It broadcast with 7 kilowatts of Effective Reradiated Power signal on a frequency of precisely 60 kHz. Since then it has become the standard relied upon for accuracy in automated time keeping. Now, an interesting article on the stations half century of service along with a possible projection of its future has been written by author Joe Hanson for the on-line publication Wired at tinyurl.com/wwvb-history. (RW, WIRED) ** RADIO IN SPACE: NEW SUN-WATCHING SATELLITE LAUNCHED Turning to space related news, word that NASA has launched a satellite on a two year mission to explore a little-studied region of the sun. The new bird will help to better understand and forecast space weather that can disrupt communications systems on Earth. Amateur Radio Newsline's Heather Embee, KB3TZD, reports: -- Unlike a traditional liftoff, the Iris sun-observing satellite rode into Earth orbit late Thursday, June 27th on board an Orbital Sciences Corporation Pegasus rocket. This is a booster that is released from a modified Lockheed L- 1011 jet aircraft that carries it to a launch altitude. In this case the launch carrier took off around sunset from the Vandenberg Air Force Base on California's central coast. At an altitude of 39,000 feet it released the Pegasus booster which ignited its engine for the 13-minute climb to space. Shortly thereafter NASA confirmed that Iris had successfully reached its intended orbit and that it had received confirmation that the satellite deployed its solar panels and was generating power. The 7-foot-long Iris, weighing 400 pounds, carries an ultraviolet telescope that can take high-resolution images every few seconds. Unlike NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which observes the entire sun, Iris will focus on a little-explored region that lies between the surface and the corona. That's the glowing white ring that's visible during eclipses. Iris is being managed by the space agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Its ultimate goal is to learn more about how this region of the sun drives solar wind and to better predict how space weather can cause disruptions to communications here on Earth. The latter is something very near and dear to ham radio operators, world- wide. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Heather Embee, KB3TZD, in Berwick, Pennsylvania. -- As a historical note the first successful Pegasus launch occurred on April 5, 1990 with NASA test pilot and former astronaut Gordon Fullerton in command of the carrier aircraft.

(Above from various DX news sources) ** THAT FINAL ITEM: CANADIAN TEEN DEVELOPS BODY POWERED FLASHLIGHT And finally this week, the story of a fifteen year old Canadian student used her knowledge of electronics to develop an innovative flashlight. One that could eventually revolutionize portable lighting because all it needs for power is its owner's body heat. Amateur Radio Newsline's Cheryl Lasek, K9BIK, has the rest of the story: -- The UK Daily Mail newspaper says Ann Makosinski is a high school junior in Victoria, British Columbia. In deciding on a science project she realized that Peltier tiles, which produce electricity when one side is heated and the other is cooled could use body-heat to create energy for a flashlight. So she set off to do just that. Te result is a LED flashlight that lights simply by holding it on the outside. That causes the tiles to heat up on one side while the ambient air cool down the tile on the inside. The power created by the tiles was enough so she created a four component voltage multiplying circuit that would provide the level she required. As a result of her efforts, this September Ann will be one of fifteen finalists presenting their projects at the Google Science Fair in Mountain View, California. The winner gets a prize of $50,000 and a trip to the Galapagos Islands. For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I'm Cheryl Lasek, K9BIK, in Zion, Illinois. -- You can read the full story and watch the video of Ann Makosinski explaining and demonstrating her invention on the web at tinyurl.com/heat-powered-light.
