W1AW 2014 PORTABLE OPERATIONS

for the 2014 ARRL CENTENNIAL

 

...di IK0XBX  (14 aprile 2014)

Buonasera a tutti...., ritengo opportuno condividere con i colleghi che praticano le HF questa interessante iniziativa dell'ARRL: quest'anno l'ARRL per festeggiare i suoi 100 anni, ha attivato la stazione W1AW/x portatile da tutti i 50 stati e dai "possedimenti" d'oltremare. Ogni settimana sono attive due stazioni da due diversi stati, su tutte le bande HF in tutti i modi operativi e, cosa importante, 24 ore su 24 operate da BIG STATIONS, collegabili anche con modesti mezzi. L'occasione per lavorare tutti i 50 stati USA (compresi i rari Wyomimg, Nord e Sud Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, ecc.) è unica, ed i segnali arrivano sempre e forte.

Scaricate immediatamente il calendario delle attivazioni, dal sito dell'ARRL. In questo momento arrivano fortissimo con W1AW/1 dal Massachutes, W1AW/4 dalla Virginia e W1AW/KP4 da Portorico, dal 16 aprile saranno attivi da W1AW/0 dal rarissimo Nord Dakota e da W1AW/5 dal Mississipi (attenzione, sul calendario le date sono in formato USA, mese/giorno/anno) ed è indicato il nominativo della stazione che ospita la W1AW/x (come potete notare tutte stazioni BIG). Ho preparato anche un altro modulo (ne ho stampato uno che uso come tappetino per il mouse per averlo sempre sottomano HI) dove sono riportati i stati, i call che saranno utilizzati, e le caselle da spuntare man mano che si collegano sulle varie bande nei vari modi, in modo da avere subito la situazione sottocontrollo.

Ovviamente l'ARRL ha istituito pure un diploma per coloro che faranno il WAS collegando tutte le stazioni W1AW/x nel corso del 2014 e una sorta di maratona con punteggi diversi in base alle stazioni collegate (contando come punteggio anche i soci ARRL anche molti di noi valgono 1 punto per chi ci collega HI); per questi diplomi vi rimando direttamente al sito ARRL dove troverete tutti i regolamenti ( http://www.arrl.org/centennial-qso-party) Non preoccupatevi per gli Stati che hanno già trasmesso in questi 4 mesi..., perché saranno di nuovo attivi nell'arco del 2014 ed avrete occasione per collegarli tutti.

Complimenti a Francesco IK0FUX che è al 6° posto italiano nei collegamenti con le stazioni W1AW/x attivate finora (141 qso fatti nelle varie bande e modi, tra l'altro non aggiornati con le ultime attivazioni) !!! Per qualunque chiarimento sono a disposizione, se avete dubbi non fatevi problemi a mandarmi una mail.

  • The Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) launched a new SATERN International SSB Net on June 2 on 14.325 MHz. Net sessions will take place Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 11 AM Central Daylight Time, in cooperation with the Hurricane Watch Net (HWN), which has used 14.325 MHz for many years during its own activations. Just down the band, another net sporting the same SATERN ...

  • WSJT-X version 2.4.0 now is available in general release. According to co-developer Joe Taylor, K1JT, WSJT-X version 2.4.0 includes a new digital mode, Q65. This protocol is designed for two-way contacts over especially difficult propagation paths, including ionospheric scatter, troposcatter, rain scatter, TEP, EME, and other types of fast-fading signals.“On paths with Doppler spread more than ...

  • Antennas/MicrowaveUtility-Driven Tradeoff Analysis, if you want to geto on the microwave bands , you will have to choose the proper antenna for your operating conditions. How to decide is not always easy, and you may also decide to build your own antenna.

  • Antennas/6M/6 meter Yagi AntennasSix meters is a great band for home built Yagis. The elements are reasonably small, but not so small that building tolerances are critical. With careful construction and detailed instructions, it is certainly feasible to build no-tune Yagis up to 432 MHz.
