RADIO POLITICS: HOUSE MAJORITY REPORTEDLY
WANTS SPECTRUM CLEARING RATHER THAN SHARING
According to news reports, the majority
control in the United States House of
Representatives favors clearing federal
spectrum for commercial use instead of
seeking sharing arrangements. This,
according to the majority staff memo
circulated for a House of Representatives
hearing prior to a meeting held recently in
Washington D.C.. And there is a chance that
any decisions could impact on future access
to the highest Ultra High Frequency and Super
High Frequency bands used by ham radio.
Amateur Radio Newsline’s Don Carlson, KQ6FM,
takes a look at what’s transpiring in the
On September 13th, House members of the
Communications and Technology subcommittee
were to discuss the subject of Creating
Opportunities through Improved Government
Spectrum Efficiency. But in rejecting a
report from the President’s Council of
Advisors on Science and Technology, the memo
said that sharing spectrum in the way it
envisions is less useful than clearing
spectrum and too untested to be the focus of
the subcommittee’s spectrum strategy.
The memo went on to say that such sharing
should be reserved for cases in which federal
clearing is impossible. However the
President’s Council of Advisors on Science
and Technology and the National
Telecommunications and Information
Administration both endorse public-private
spectrum sharing. They also claim that
clearing the spectrum would cost more than
$18 billion and 10 years to clear the
But the staff memo claims that this figure
was inflated and unconfirmed by independent
analysis. Instead it calls the figure merely
aggregated the estimates of the federal
agencies currently using the spectrum. The
memo claims that the NTIA and the President’s
Council of Advisors on Science and Technology
never fully investigated the agencies’
relocation estimates. Nor has it determined
whether the agencies need all the spectrum
they have, or whether they could get by with
less if they had more efficient equipment or
relied more on commercial services.
At this moment its not known exactly what
spectrum would be impacted if a non-sharing
plan is eventually passed. That said, it
could impact negatively on amateur radio if
the reallocated spectrum was that shared
between Part 97 users and government agencies
as quite a bit of the U-H-F and higher bands
are today. And while am eventual compromise
between the two factions is most likely, this
is yet another matter that the nations ham
radio community will have to watch closely in
the days, weeks and months ahead.
For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I’m Don
Carlson, KQ6FM, in Reno.
For its part, the President’s Council’s
proposed a sharing arrangement is similar to
unlicensed devices in the broadcast bands,
which use a dynamic database to check for
open frequencies. However the majority House
staff appears to have rejected that approach.

RADIO POLITICS: SARL SAYS IT SUPPORTS RSGB
STAND ON BPL/PLT
Over on the other side of the world, the
South African Radio League says that it
supports the Radio Society of Great Britain’s
concerns over Access Broadband over Powerline
also known as Powerline Technology. These
are the internet access ports carried on
unshielded in-home and powerline to home
As reported last week, the RSGB had written
an official letter to the International
Amateur Radio Union Region 1 Electromagnetic
Compatibility Working Group. In it the U-K
national ham radio society asked that the
Working Group reconsider its policy on the
draft European Broadband over Power Line
standard. One that the RSGB claims to
threaten a 38dB increase in RF pollution over
much of the short wave radio spectrum.
Now, in its own public statement, the South
African Radio League days that it fully
supports the RSGB's views. It says that any
relaxation in emission levels can have far
reaching negative effects which ultimately
may impact on South Africa as well. (SARL)
HAM RADIO IN SPACE: NEW CUBESATS NOW ON-
What might best be called a flotilla of new
cubesats operating in the ham radio bands are
now on-orbit. Amateur Radio Newsline’s
George Bowen, W2XBS, has the details:
The long awaited launch of a number of new
ham radio cubesats has finally taken place.
The group of tiny birds winged their way to
Earth orbit on September 13th on board a The
Atlas 5 launch vehicle from Vandenberg Air
Force Base in California.
The launch carried a satellite for the
National Reconnaissance Office. Also aboard
this flight at four cubesats as part of
NASA’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites
mission and seven cubesats for government
use. The non government mini-birds include
the Cubesat for Ion, Neutral, Electron,
Magnetic fields that downlinks its science
telemetry is in 2200 to 2300 MHz range.
Also now on-orbit is the Colorado Student
Space Weather Experiment that can be heard on
437.345 MHz transmitting 9k6 modulation in
AX.25 protocol. Another is CP5 also known as
PolySat with its downlink at 437.405 MHz at 1
watt, AFSK on Lower Sideband in AX.25
protocol. Rounding out the set is XBN which
is a Cosmic X-Ray Background Nanosatellite
with its downlink 437.525 MHz running G-F-S-K
also in AX.25 protocol.
Several hours after launch Justin Foley,
KI6EPH, announced via the Cubesat Internet
Rely Channel that all of the microsats had
been successfully deployed. A detailed
article of the launch can be found on-line at

AMATEUR RADIO IN SPACE: THREE HAMS RETURN TO
Three astronauts hams have returned safely to
Earth after completing a four month mission
aboard the International Space Station. The
Expedition 32 crew made up of American Flight
Engineer Joe Acaba, KE5DAR with Russian
Commander Gennady Padalka, RN3DT, and Flight
Engineer Sergei Revin, RN3BS, undocked their
Soyuz TMA-04M spacecraft from the orbiting
space lab at 7:09 p.m. EDT. They landed in
northern Kazakhstan at 10:53 p.m. EDT Sunday
The homeward bound Soyuz fired its orbital
engines one last time at 9:56 p.m. The
descent module then separated from the
spacecraft and fell through the atmosphere.
It then deployed its parachutes and fired
landing engines shortly before touchdown to
soften the impact.
The successful landing wraps up a mission
that began on May 17 with the Expedition 32
crew spending 125 days in space. (ARRL,

BREAKING DX NEWS: N8HS SWAINS ISLAND
OPERATION GOES QRT EARLY
The NH8S team on Swains Island is now QRT and
is reported to be in the process of tearing
down their camp. This, for a possible early
Sanford Houston, K5YY, who is the
DXpedition's Pilot Station. He says that the
decision to go silent before the announced
September 18th end of operations date was due
to several factors. This included bad
weather conditions, antennas that had come
down, a number of operators that had fallen
ill with some wounds requiring medical care.
During its stay on Swains the NH8S team has
made a total of 105,455 QSOs with 26,010
Unique callsigns. Of these 43,126 were on
SSB, 54,128 on CW and 8,201 made using RTTY.
Direct QSLs can be mailed to the Swains

RADIO CRIME: HAM RADIO EMCOMM REPEATER
Steven Tidwell, KF5NDG, reports to Amateur
Radio Newsline on a recent case where a
repeater used for Skywarn and other ham radio
emergency communications was criminally
damaged. The only good news us that it
appears the perpetrators have been caught.
Amateur Radio Newsline’s Cheryl Lasek, K9BIK
has the details:
It all happened a few weeks ago at about 4:15
a.m. local time on August 20th. That’s when
the 147.12 MHz hub of the W5RHS linked
repeater system in Benton, Arkansas, was
taken off the air by an act of vandalism.
The repeater site is located on a water tower
that sits behind a fence and locked gate.
The suspects managed to break in to the site,
and cut the hard-line going to the repeater
and the link antennas. They also cut the
coax going to the Water Association radio
system. The latter is the commercial radio
system communicates between the plant and the
According to KF5NDG the system owner is Kelly
Hesters, whose call is W5RHS. He reportedly
noticed that his repeater was off the air
when he was leaving work about 7 AM. He made
a stop at the repeater site and noticed a
Toyota pickup truck outside the gate. He
then went inside he found the damage.
The next day when he went back to see what
parts and supplies he needed to get the
repeater back on the air he found a key that
the suspects dropped on the ground. He
contacted the Saline County Sheriffs office
which determined that the key belonged to the
vehicle. As a result of some detective work
by the local authorities the suspects in the
break-in have been arrested.
Meantime W5RHS is waiting on the delivery of
some new hard-line to get the repeater back
on the air.
For the Amateur Radio Newsline, I’m Cheryl
Lasek, K9BIK, in Zion, Illinois.
By way of reference, the W5RHS repeater is
the main hub for a multi-linked repeater
system in Arkansas. This repeater system is
also very involved in Skywarn operations as
well as carrying NOAA weather radio alerts.
ENFORCEMENT: FCC AFFIRMS $15000 NAL TO
UNLICENSED MIAMI BROADCASTER

forfeiture previously issued to Jeffrey
Darius. This for his alleged operation an
unlicensed transmitter in the Miami, Florida
Back on March 6th the Enforcement Bureau’s
Miami Office issued a Notice of Apparent
Liability for Forfeiture to Darius after
tracing an unlicensed broadcast operation on
88.7 MHz to him. To date, Darius had not
filed a response to the proposed fine. As a
result the forfeiture has been affirmed.
As is the custom, Darius was given the usual

RADIOSPORTS: CALIFORNIA AND PENNSYLVANIA QSO
Two of the nations most popular radiosporting
events are looming on the near horizon.
Amateur Radio Newsline’s Mark Abramowicz,
NT3V, is here with the details:
The first weekend of October, it's the
granddaddy of all state QSO parties - the
California QSO Party. It's sponsored by the
Northern California Contest Club.
The action starts on Saturday, Oct. 6 and
wraps up Sunday, Oct. 7.
The following weekend, Saturday, Oct. 13 and
Sunday, Oct. 14, it's the Pennsylvania QSO
sponsored by the Nittany Amateur Radio Club
in State College, PA.
It's promoted as the "Friendly QSO Party."
Let's start right up front here.
You don't have to be a contester to take part
in either of these events.
In fact, most of the operators competing in
either of the parties like to hear from the
many casual operators who might turn on their
radios during the weekend, hear some
activity, and tune up and down the HF bands
offering a simple contact and, perhaps, a
much needed multiplier.
So, you're just as valuable, sometimes even
more valuable, than you might think.
Don't be afraid. Squeeze the mic or touch the
CW paddles or the key and give a fellow ham a
California's party features activity from all
58 counties in the Golden State and has
special competitions for Y-Ls, youth
operators, first-time contesters and even
Club competitions are highly encouraged, so
if you decide to jump in, put the name of
your radio club into the entry form.
The California Party gives away a host of
plaques for various operating categories,
offers unique T-shirts to those who are
interested, and even awards special prizes
for the top 20 California and top 20 non-
California single operator stations. See
their website for more on that.
The following weekend, the bands get active
again as operators fan out across
Pennsylvania's 67 counties for a great
It's one of the few competitions where lots
of non-contesters get together with friends
to set up Field Day-style stations to
activate some of the rare Pennsylvania
There's lots of buzz in the months before the
party on a reflector operated by the party
And, there are plaques and certificates
awarded to contestants both within
Pennsylvania and across the country. Even DX
stations are recognized.
First-timers also are welcome in the PA
Party. And, there are T-shirts for those who
to get one.
So, is your station ready?
If you're a contester, maybe you consider
each of the parties a warm-up for the fall
If you're not a contester, get on anyway.
Pick up a few counties in Pennsylvania or
California, maybe a few unique call signs if
you're a prefix hunter.
The bottom line: Have some fun.
We'll see you on the air!

Abramowicz, NT3V, in Philadelphia.

1700 U-T-C, a combined group of international
and local operators started operating as Z-6-
zero-K from near Pristina, Kosovo on both 20
and 17 meter SSB. Operators included 9A9A,
MD0CCE, OH2BH and OH2TA. Local television
recorded the historic moment live on air. QSL
And word that the Martello Tower Group will
be activating the Island of Herm which from
October 4th to the 8th. Operations will be
on 80 through 10 meter SSB and RTTY. QSL
Lastly ON6KE will be active as 9H3AK from
Gozo Island through September 28th. His
activity will be holiday style on 40, 30 and
20 meters operating about 5 watts QRP on CW
only. QSL only electronically via Logbook of
the World or eQSL. No printed cards will be
available for this operation.

THAT FINAL ITEM: LAST MAN STANDING GETS
SPECIAL EVENT CALL K6T
And finally this week, word from Last Man
Standing Producer John Amodeo, NN6JA, that
the callsign K6T has been approved for use
for the shows special event operation to be
held on Sunday, October 28th. NN6JA says
that K6T will take to the air at
approximately 9 a.m. Pacific with exact bands
and frequencies to be announced as the date
gets closer. And according to Amodeo, he
wants this to be a fun event that everyone
can share in:
NN6JA: “We at the show are so excited about
ham radio and we have so much incredibly cool
amateur radio here; not to mention some 12
licensed amateur radio operators on the
staff; that we decided why not share our good
fortune with hams out around America and our
ham (radio) fans in particular and get on the
air and talk directly to our ham (radio) fans
through all of our great gear.
“So we took a few minutes, put all of our
antennas on the roof so we could improve our
range; tuned everything up; and we are ready
“So we are hoping everybody from around the
country will take a few minutes away from
contesting, because that is a big contest
afternoon, and come on over (to where we are
operating) and call us up.”
NN6JA says that the current plan is to
operate on the High Frequency, VHF and UHF
bands as well as D-STAR, Echolink and IRLP.
This should make it possible for hams
anywhere to make contact with K6T.
NN6JA: “We are going to provide a large
number of paths for people to get in so we
kind of feel that everyone in the country
should be able to find some path to get to
our stage (ham radio operation) to talk to
our crew and the PAPA members who are helping
According to Amodeo, members of the LA based
PAPA System will assist the licensed
operators who are part of the shows the crew
in running the event. They will use several
PAPA System repeaters to run its local and
linked communications. The operators will
also be monitoring other linked repeater
systems from around the country as well.
As the day approaches further information
will be posted on Facebook at
www.facebook.com/KA0XTT. Amodeo also says to
monitor @nn6ja on Twitter for the fastest
