Activity of Hungarian Stations on AO7

Hungarian stations on AO7

Are there satellite activity in northetn USA and Canada?

I was calling when I was in the range of AO7 on orbit 51108. At 19:31 UT I had to stop because I did not hear myself any longer.

I was around 145963  -on CW as usual. Sometimes I use SSB as well...

I did this many times, but there are no takers from Canada und the USA!

No takers again!

Use of 6 m Band Permitted in Hungary for one more year

The 50-52MHz band is open to all CEPT-level licencees in 2008 as well. The National Communications Authority (NHH) has prolonged permission for one more year.

Use of 4 m Band Permitted in Hungary

A one month long experiment starts at 00.00 LMT on 1st July for studies of propagation possibilities on the four metre band.

Participants of the experiment are CEPT licence holders who were chosen by Haros Radioklub and MRASZ respectively and took the trouble to keep a separate log for a summerized report afterwards.

Detailed information can be found on

http://ham-radio.me.uk/70MHA.htm

The record was made

Record number of contacts were made between Dr. Charles Simonyi who has been using his HA5SIK callsign abord the ISS during his journey in space. He had changed reports with as many as 21 stations during one passover on 11th April 2007 beginning with 22.55 UT.

HA5SIK and HAs had mede a record

Our Man in Space

At around Christmas 2006, using these very pages, Dr. Andras Gschwindt, HA5WH called out for participants of a unique experiment with Hungarian born civilian astronaut and amateur radio operator  Dr. Charles Simonyi HA5SIK.

Until 2nd April 2007, thirty-two Hungarian-speaking radio-operators had reported themselves eager to take part in the test. Their task was to make as many short radio contacts with the radio station of the ISS during a ten minute pass as possible, the passage offering a maximum elevation of 70 degrees seen from Budapest.

Dr. Simonyi was flying over his native country between around 22:55 and 23:05 UTC 11th April 2007. He was first heard having a jovial chat with PD0RKC when approaching the Carpathians, then, when the elevation of the ISS was  about 15 degrees, he started calling for Hungarian stations.

Most of the 32 participants made themselves heard. Those who live on the lowlands in the South-Eastern corner of Hungary were called a bit too late:  ISS was already out of their radio-horizon.

Despite his relatively short amateur radio career, Charles, HA5SIK proved to be a very good operator, at times easily handing out 3 contacts per minute.


One of the recordings of the radio contacts can be found at

http://www.ha5mrc.hu/hamsat/muhold.html

and some photos of the antennas used by the participating stations can be seen at

New Hungarian 50 MHz Experiment in 2006.

Since 29 March the 50-52MHz band is open to all CEPT-level licencees, but only with a maximum power of 10W ERP. The National Communications Authority (NHH) has invited the Hungarian Amateur Radio Society (MRASZ) to take part in an experiment which is aimed at answering the question whether or not a higher power limit would impose threat to the primary band usage: broadcasting. A maximum of 100 stations can take part in the experiment with up to 150W RF power and antennas with up to 6 dB gain. MRASZ is currently advertising to find participants for the experiment. Details of the experiment, dates, selected stations, etc. will be published later.

First Hungarian Beacon for 6 m

HA1YA has made the first Hungarian beacon for the 6 metre band. You can see the picture of the driver below:

See also: http://ha1ya.config.hu//

Its callsign will be HG1BVB. Power: 10 W

Frequency: 50032 kHz. Mode: F1. Antenna. Crossed dipoles

QTH: JN87fi 726 m asl. (It can be changed.)

The beacon is not operational yet because of the lack of a licence.

Lyrids are Coming

Because of the orbit of a meteor shower and the rotation of Earth meteor-scatter QSOs can be made by beaming optimal direction each time!

The diagram below was produced according to a formula published in VHF Communications 1974 winter copy by DJ5DT and using the output of a software written by G3NAQ.

I have chosen this QTF because we can copy most stations from that direction. Another graph showing the N-S path would be quite similar. These directions are two-way ones!

Anyone to write a fresh software for this important purpose?

NN0604220700UT

We Have Got 6m and the Whole 40m band!

THE 6M BAND IS LEGAL IN HUNGARY
for immediate release

As of 29 March 2006, HA amateurs can start using the 50-52 MHz band on a secondary, non-interference basis as a new frequency allocation plan has appeared in the official journal of the Republic of Hungary. The same government order also opens the 7100-7200 kHz segment of the 40m amateur radio band for Hungarian radio amateurs.

On 6m, the frequency allocation for amateur radio is 50-52MHz, with a power limit of 10W ERP. All known modes occupying less than 12 kHz bandwidth are allowed. There are no restrictions on the design or polarity of antennas, but the 10W ERP limit has to be obeyed.
As the amateur radio band is now contained in the National Frequency Allocation Plan, no separate licences are required, all stations holding a CEPT-equivalent licence are automatically granted access. No mobile operation on 6m is allowed however. The two television transmitters in Hungary remain operational in the band for the time being.

Early access to the 7100-7200 kHz segment of the 40m amateur radio band is also granted for those holding CEPT-equivalent licences, with 150W or 250W of power depending upon the licence class. As this band is under 30MHz, a CW proficiency exam is still necessary. Hungary is expecting new amateur radio regulations within a few months that will revise - among other thing - the Morse requirement and the national licence/exam classes.

Negotiations

Hungarian radio clubs and organizations are just negotiating with the National Authority of Telecommunications about new rules and regulations to be agreed during the next calendar year.

A new proposal was produced which can be read if you visit:

Amendment 8. is about frequency bands and modes which could be used by amateur

and amateur-satellite service.

New Regulations Expected

Hungary is expecting new amateur radio regulations within a few months.

Although the government is still working on the text of the law and a few points might still change, the following key points seem to be already certain:

- 50-52 MHz will be allocated to amateur radio on a secondary basis. Power limit expected 10W / 30W depending on licence level. No major restrictions on modes or antenna
- 7.100-7.200 MHz will be opened for the amateur radio service.
- Licence (and exam) classes completely re-arranged, there will be an "Entry" level licence, a "CEPT Novice" licence and a full "CEPT" licence.
- CW no longer obligatory for bands under 30 MHz, but CW examinations are likely to remain available. As of today, it seems that the exclusive CW band segments will only be avalailable to those who pass the 6WPM Morse exam.
- Geographical call-areas will cease to exist. Callsigns will be assigned to the licencee, who will be able to keep it regardless of a change of QTH. The number inside the callsign will no longer mean anything. It is already a practice however, there are a few stations with their QTH out of the call area.
- Hungary will accept CEPT Novice licences as valid, as per ECC/REC (05)06. Exact usage conditions of the equivalent Hungarian licence class yet to be determined though: we hope to open all bands for novices.
- Legal power limit in the highest licence category (CEPT class) will raise to 1.5 kW on most bands under 30 MHz.

Contest Cheating

Any contest cheat has a major personality disorder requiring the kind of help that contest sponsors are unable to offer!

They (cheeters) should just make an "unlimited" class where absolutely anything goes: 3 kw, self spotting, internet skeds--whatever. People would probably still find a way to cheat in that category :-)
