IARU Region 1 Conference on Amateur Radio - Doha, Qatar

Regional Conference on Amateur Radio 2010

The Regional Conference on Amateur Radio will be held April 4 - 6, 2010 in Doha, State of Qatar and will be the biggest Regional Symposium on Amateur Radio in the Middle East in 2010.

The Conference is organized by the Qatar Amateur Radio Society (QARS) jointly with the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU).

So far the kind invitation from the QARS Chairman H.E. Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, A71AU, has been accepted by a number of IARU societies in the Middle East as well as one from Region 3 together with Telecom Regulators and Administrations from the GCC area.

Participation isalso expected from ITU officials as well as local Qatar officials.

The IARU team will consist of: IARU Vice President Ole Garpestad, LA2RR, IARU Region 1 President Hans Blondeel Timmerman, PB2T and IARU Region 1 EC-member Hani Raad, OD5TE.

The symposium gives the delegates the opportunity to exchange information related to the Amateur Radio Service in the Arab World along with the regulatory aspects in connection with the Amateur Radio Service.

The program consist of presentations on Regulatory issues, preparation for WRC-12, Amateur Radio Emergency and Disaster Communication, national regulations of Amateur Radio in the GCC States combined with panel discussions and workshops with the aim to assist in building and maintaining good working relationship between the National Regulators and the Amateur Radio Societies.

Doha has been launched by UNESCO as the capital of the Arab culture and a celebration of ”Al-Doha Capital of Arab Culture 2010" with H.E. Minister of Culture, Arts and Heritage will take place during the RCAR 2010 event.

More information on the invitation, program, hotel and visa may be found in related documents available on the IARU Region 1 web or obtained from any of the IARU team members listed above.

November 30, 2008

Twenty-five years ago this week, Owen Garriott, W5LFL, made history by being the first amateur radio operator to talk to hams from space.  Owen's historic flight on the STS-9 Space Shuttle Columbia mission was launched on November 28 and landed on December 8, 1983.  Owen's ham radio adventure on STS-9 ushered in a host of outstanding outreach activities that continue today with the ARISS program. 

Many will recall that first set of contacts and downlinks with Owen. Those first contacts allowed each of us to share the excitement of space exploration through Owen's first-hand eyewitness accounts.  Owen's ham radio legacy enabled space travelers that have flown on the Space Shuttle, the Space Station Mir and now the International Space Station to share their journey of exploration.  And Owen's son Richard, W5KWQ just a month ago carried the torch further to become the first 2nd generation amateur radio operator to talk to hams from space.  What other hobby, except amateur radio, could or would open the communications lines of space travelers beyond that of the space agencies or international heads of state ?

To celebrate our 25 years of amateur radio operations from space, the ARISS team has planned a set of special event opportunities during the month of December and part of January.  A special certificate is being developed for those who communicate with the ISS, either 2-way direct (with the ISS crew, the digipeater, or cross band repeater), or 1-way reception of SSTV or voice downlink.  Several events will be described here with several "surprises" planned over the month-long celebration.  The surprises will be announced once we are prepositioned to accomplish them.

Specifically, the following is being planned in the near-term:

---December 1-5--in addition to school contacts and APRS digi operations, we plan to configure the radio system for cross band repeater operations.  This will utilize the standard U/V operations in low power mode.
---December 7-12 we will run a test of 9600 baud packet operations on the simplex frequency 145.825 MHz.
---Given that PCSAT should be in full sun starting December 9, December 14-19 we will switch to 1200 baud packet on 145.825 to support double hop opportunities.
---And at times, especially during the weekends, you might see some SSTV operations if the crew is available.

We will provide more updates in the near future.  We would like to remind everyone that ISS flight requirements related to EVA and vehicle activity may require the radio to be off for some portion of this schedule. And school contacts and general QSO opportunities by the crew will also preempt this schedule for short periods of time.  (But remember that if you hear these, you still qualify for a commemorative certificate).

In the meantime, enjoy the ARISS ops on ISS!  And congratulations to Owen Garriott, W5LFL, on the 25th anniversary of his historic flight!!

In memoriam DJ9BV

It has come to my notice that Rainer DJ9BV has become silent key. Another great radio-pioneer is lost...
Rainer was very ill for some time but we hoped he had overcome his desease. Regretfully we will have to live on without him.
His great contribution to radio and especially antenna science however, will live amongst us for ethernity.

Rainernak koszonhetjuk majd 15 eveig a DUBUS-t, amit teritesmentesen
kuldott a magyar amatoroknek.
Utoljara HA2RG EME QTH-jan es pincejeben talalkoztunk ...
RIP  Rainer !

Nagyon sajnálom a Rainert, annál is inkább mert jóvoltodból, személyes emlékeim is fűznek hozzá, na meg az eme antennáim terve is tőle származik. Remélem még sokáig őrizzük  az emlékét.
Pali. HA2RG

Rainer contributed so much to our hobby, his designs stand the test of time as his memorial in so many stations like mine, LNAs Yagis, PANFI.
 Thankyou Rainer and RIP.
 Peter G3LTF
Rainer, thank you for the help and your effort. Rest in Peace my Friend!
We will remember you!
73, Harry LZ1BB
Vy sad news, I met  two times Rainer, he gave to me mni help to the construction of his antenna design 432 opt.
The whole community  lost one of the best  members.
Rest in peace Rainer.
Enrico i5wbe

He deserves a place in the Hall of Fame! My condolences to his family!
Rainer, you'll be missed forever!

Phoenix Has Landed



On landing day, May 25, live landing commentary will air on NASA TV. A telecast of mission control -- without roll-in videos and interviews -- will run on NASA TV's Media Channel beginning at 3 p.m. Another telecast with commentary, interviews and videos will begin at 3:30 p.m. on NASA TV's Public Channel. For more information on NASA TV and this coverage schedule, visit:


Both telecasts will continue through landing and will resume at 6:30 p.m. during the period after landing when engineers anticipate the receipt of data and possible images confirming that Phoenix has opened its solar panels successfully.

Silent Key

It is with great sadness that I just read about the passing of L. B. Cebik, W4RNL, one
of the most prolific and well versed antenna modelers of all time. 

Here is the link on ARRL.org:




Idén az űrkutatás területén kifejtett több évtizedes mérnöki és oktatói tevékenységért dr. Gschwindt András, a Budapesti Műszaki és Gazdaságtudományi Egyetem, Szélessávú Hírközlés és Villamosságtan Tanszék, Űrkutató Csoport vezetője részesült Bay-díjban.


HA5WH kezdeményezése és kitartó szervező munkája nélkül a kísérlet nem jöhetett volna létre.

A 34 résztvevő nevében ezúton gratulálok

Solar Cycle Update:
by NN4RH on March 20, 2008
In other words, nobody has a clue what cycle 24 is going to look like, but the solar physicists have to do something to keep themselves busy until then, even if it doesn't make sense.
RE: Solar Cycle Update:
by AE6RO on March 20, 2008
I couldn't help noticing that the Cycle 24 peak is now expected in 2012. Last week it was 2011.
John Devoldere said in his book "Low Band DXing" that the solar minimum would be in 2006 but it seems to be happening in 2008.
I think it might be another solar minimum coming, like the Dalton or Maunder mimimums. Good news for satellite users, bad for DXers. 73, John
