India - 6m News
TUESDAY 24 AUGUST 2010 10:03

Prasad, VU2PTT (also W2PTT), Contest Manager for the- Amateur Radio Society of India (ARSI), reports: "We have news from our Ministry of Communications that the 6 meter band has finally been allocated for Amateur Radio use.

The new allocation says: 50-54 MHz on F1B, F2B, F3E, F3C modes using 25 watts.
We are hoping there is a typo here and will try to get clarifications as the old allocations allowed CW & SSB among other modes on VHF/UHF which is no longer the case.
The licensing structure has now been rationalized with only two classes of license - Restricted & General - and licenses can now be acquired either for 20 years or for the lifetime of the holder.
The other interesting development is that 400 watts DC input power has been allowed on all HF bands for the General class licence. Earlier the limit was 150 watts input with 400 watts being allowed in very small sub-bands for the old Advanced class licence holders.
The full details of the new allocations and license structure is available at:  http://wpc.dot.gov.in/DocFiles/amateur_new_guidelines.pdf "

The End of a Country
THURSDAY 19 AUGUST 2010 14:00

NETHERLANDS ANTILLES (More on Bonaire, the 10/10/10 Break-up and a full Press Release on the Upcoming Operation). Kelly, N0VD, provides more info to OPDX regarding the postponed referendum, and wanted to clarify a few points that may be confusing for those not following the political process on Bonaire. He states, "In short, the referendum has no affect on 10.10.10 transition date. It was simply an attempt by some of the minority political leaders to gauge the opinion of the Bonaire people as to whether they agree or disagree with how the whole political process has taken place and the eventual outcome."

He quotes the "Bonaire Reporter" dated August 16th: "On Friday, the 13th, Bonaire's planned referendum was postponed until further notice. The Island Council adopted an amendment stating a referendum would be held 'on a date to be determined later per Island Ordinance.'" "The action effectively cancelled the Island' Government's attempt to test the mood of the people prior to the integration of the island with Holland on October10, 2010. The Referendum's outcome in any case would not have affected the integration."
"The amendment was offered by independent councilman Anthony Nicolaas. Opposition leader Ramonsito Booi asked for a vote but his four-person faction got up and left without voting, leaving the amendment to be accepted by the four Democratic party members and Nicolaas."
"The Referendum Committee had asked to postpone the poll from September 3 to October 1 to have more time to organize it properly. One of the matters that came up during the meeting was that the cost of conducting the referendum was estimated to be NAf 500.000. The budget approved earlier was only NAf 350.000."

Kelly, states, "So in essence, the referendum (or lack of) has little affect on our planned DXpedition." He also mentioned that they anticipate to have their group's Web site to go live this week.

The following is a full press release on the upcoming Bonaire operation:
Press Release: 10-10-2010, New DXCC activation of PJ4, Bonaire
Date: 11 August, 2010

The end of a country - The Netherlands Antilles With a 99% certainty, many things are about to change for the people and all radio amateurs in the Netherlands Antilles. On October 10, 2010 the Netherlands Antilles will cease to exist as a country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the islands will emerge with several new statuses:
* St. Maarten and Curaçao will become an independent country within the Kingdom and will be granted the same status that Aruba attained in 1986.
* Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius (also called BES islands) will be given the status of a public body (a kind of special municipality) in the Netherlands and will therefore fall directly under Dutch rule. What does this mean for radio amateurs?
The two current DXCC entities of PJ2/PJ4 (Leeward Islands) and PJ5/PJ6/PJ7 (Windward Islands) are expected to be deleted. However, several new entities are likely to emerge on 10-10-2010.
* Both St. Maarten (PJ7) and Curacao (PJ2) will become a new DXCC entity.
* Bonaire (PJ4) will become a new DXCC entity.
* Saba (PJ6) along with St. Eustatius (PJ5) will become a single DXCC entity due to their proximity to each other.

In short, 2 entities will be disappearing, but 4 will come back!

Activities from Bonaire
Everyone knows what an activation of a new DXCC country means and that's why a group of hams from Bonaire, Germany, The Netherlands and the United States have joined forces to successfully activate Bonaire.

From six locations around the island, a group of between 15 and 20 amateurs will activate Bonaire between October 10-24, 2010. The primary focus will be all HF bands from 160 to 10 meters including the WARC bands.
Due to the time of year, 6 meters will not likely produce much activity, but it will be a consideration. The team will focus on all modes including SSB, CW and various digital modes.

   Callsigns will be announced prior to the activation. However, we expect the prefix to continue to be PJ4 even after October 10th. Further inform- ation about the callsigns to be used will be published on our website - http://www.bonaire2010.com

Radio Netherlands
   With 6 locations around the island, there should be plenty of opportunity for a QSO. However, our premiere location is that of the short-wave trans- mitter site, Radio Netherlands. Bonaire is home to a large relay station and its impressive aerial park which provides up to 21 dBd gain. We are extremely pleased to announce that with the co-operation of the World Service, our group of hams has been granted use of the antennas during their "dead hours" on the HF bands.

   In addition to our other locations, we anticipate being active on HF daily between 12:30 and 18:30 UTC from the Radio Netherlands facility.
We expect to utilize this opportunity on 30, 20, 15 and 17 meters. Radio Netherlands is also expected to air a special program dedicated to the new status of the radio amateurs on Sunday, October 10th.

   More information will be available on the Radio Netherlands' website <www.rnw.nl> or on the DXpedition website - <www.bonaire2010.com>.

Contacts with schools
   Between October 11th-15th, the World Service's facility will also serve another purpose. A group of schoolchildren from Bonaire will be contacting another group of children in the Netherlands who will be the guest of Dutch ham PD1DX. This will provide an opportunity for the group of new Dutch country citizens to ask each other questions in order to get to know one other a little bit better.

QSL cards
   All QSOs will be QSL'd through the services of Global QSL who will be responsible for printing and distributing cards to all QSL bureaus world- wide. If you do not use a QSL bureau or would like to send for a direct confirmation, all QSL information will be published on our website – http://www.bonaire2010.com

Website with online log
Up to date information will be published on our website - http://www.bonaire2010.com
Information on Bonaire, sponsors, activation plans and the participants will be listed. In addition, we expect to have an on-line log.
Given the expected pile-ups, we kindly ask everyone who works us after 10-10-2010 and who finds themselves in the log not to call again. We want to give a new country to as many people as possible.

Participating hams
At the time of release of this bulletin the following amateurs will join the activation:
Bonaire : PJ4GT, PJ4LS, PJ4NX
Germany : DL9USA, DJ8NK
Netherlands : PA8A, PA8F, PA3GVI, PE2MC, PE2KY, PG4M
United States : K6AM, N0VD, W4PA, W0LSD
Puerto Rico : WP3UX

This list is subject to change. For the latest news about the participants, please visit our website.

See you in the pile-ups on 10-10-2010!

Help HS to be on 6m !

MONDAY 16 AUGUST 2010 15:53

Charles Harpole, HS0ZCW/K4VUD, reports: "You can help Thailand authorities understand the need to authorize full use of the 6 meter band for Thailand hams (HS and E2). Please send an E-mail via the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST), typical below, supporting
this authorization, to the RAST coordinator of this effort: 'John', HS1CHB, whose E-mail address is his USA callsign at: Questo indirizzo e-mail è protetto dallo spam bot, abilitare Javascript per vederlo

Example - To Whom It May Concern: I support the allocation of full time use of the amateur ham radio band of 50 to 54 MHz for all Thailand licensed operators. I have, for many years, sought a contact with Thailand hams on this band. There are international awards for such two-way exchanges, but, to date, it has not been possible. The 50 to 54 MHz band also is important to ham radio contests where world-wide efforts to contact Thailand are in demand. This 6 meter band permission for Thailand can bring Thailand into agreement with almost all of the other global countries' rules, and it complies with international band-plans.
Further, the allocation of the 6 meter band to Thailand hams opens a good band for emergency communication uses and relieves congestion on other bands.

Thank you for your consideration.

FULL NAME AND ADDRESS (be sure to add your country name)
NOTES: Please be sure to be super polite, do not say that past practice is bad, and include the '50 to 54' MHz phrase. Please use your own words where ever possible to avoid canned messages, but a can message is better than no message.

Your help will make a difference because Thailand never wants to be first to do something like this, but never wants to be left out or be behind. Thanks and 73,..... Charles Harpole, HS0ZCW"

Dalle ore 12 UTC del 17 Agosto alle ore 13 UTC del 18 Agosto sarò in azione da questo bellissimo luogo elvetico ed attiverò il Monte Lema con il nominativo HB9EKR!
La mia attività sarà sia in CW (modalità preferita e che avrà sempre la preferenza) sia in SSB (per dar modo agli amici non telegrafisti di poter mettere in carniere questo monte.
BANDE dagli 80 Metri ai SIX.
Gli orari di inizio e fine non sono definitivi ma pressappoco realistici, quindi prendeteli con beneficio di inventario.
Mi auguro di sentirvi tutti e a presto

Perseids Meteor Shower
THURSDAY 05 AUGUST 2010 19:08
** MMMonVHF MS Pre-View **
It’s now time for one of the most popular meteor showers: the Perseids. Although this shower has proven to be very dynamic in recent years (as in 2009, for example), only the “traditional” peak is expected to occur this year. Some encounters with high density trails are expected, but unfortunately they are not expected to cause significant meteor activity enhancement on top of background activity. According to IMO, the maximum is expected
to occur between August 12, 23h30m UT and August 13, 02h00m UT this year, with ZHR=100 hr-1.

TF3CY - EME activity
THURSDAY 05 AUGUST 2010 19:01

Hi there I’m going to be QRV from 9th to 13th of August on 6m EmE during the moonset. Looks like a lot of activity on the moon this few days ;) I will be somewhere close to HP94AD square, semi-portable. I will only be able to work moonset as I will be on the SW side of Iceland. The original plan was to be on the south most edge of Iceland, thus both working moonrise and moonset, but I’m just returning from summer vacation and could not get the extra days off work going on a trip to the south cost. Please email me if you want to try to work me, I will be active on the ON4KST chat I must warn that I’m very new in EmE – so don’t expect anything but trouble! ;) but I managed to make two QSO in the last window – and
I’m now building on that experience. I will have 600W , and a 10el yagi on a 8m mast, more info and pics on www.tf3cy.is  I can only keep the antenna up if the weather is reasonably calm – I will post if I have to postpone. 73 de TF3CY Benedikt Sveinsson

EX6EME - EME in Kyrgyzstan
THURSDAY 05 AUGUST 2010 19:00

Dear 6m EMErs, Subject to arrival of our power amplifier from M2 this week looks like we will be going to Issyk Kul, Kyrgyzstan this Saturday, August 7. Certainly we will make final announcement if we go or don't but at this point I just want to lay some basic rules and share some basic info about the trip in this semi-final announcement: While operating from the Issyk-Kul lake QTH we will use the following procedures:
1) Operation. We will be QRV from August 7 to August 14 the whole
2) Callsigns. We will EX6EME callsign. Operators: Mike (UN8GC / KZ1R)
and Oleg (EX8MLT). If we exhaust all correspondents, we may operate as EX8MLT and EX/KZ1R callsigns.
3) Grid. MN82re at all times.
4) SKEDs. We will avoid SKEDs whenever possible. We will be calling CQ in first sequence always in JT65A mode.
5) Frequency. Preliminary plan is to use 50,200 kHz as our main operating frequency. This is subject to local QRN/QRM conditions. If the primary operating frequency will be changed, we will announce it by all available means.
6) Online communication. Most likely we will be available for online Internet based chat from the DXpedition site. We will be active on MSN as Questo indirizzo e-mail è protetto dallo spam bot, abilitare Javascript per vederlo Questo indirizzo e-mail è protetto dallo spam bot, abilitare Javascript per vederlo , ICQ as 29400140, Yahoo as mchirkov and on Skype as mchirkov as well as on ON4KST site as EX7MW. In case if we lose Internet connection, we can be reached by sending text messages to our cellular phones. The exact cell phone numbers will be announced later. Please note that even though we will be online most of the time and people will be able to coordinate QSO arrangements and details with us we will never violate established EME QSO protocol to ensure completion of our QSOs. If we don't get all the necessary bits of information we will consider QSO incomplete. We are only interested in fully completed contacts just as you are.
7) Antenna elevation. We will use antenna elevation when the Moon is 20 degrees and above. However we will use no elevation to ensure ground gain as much as possible. This should give us very good windows for no-elevation stations (like those with single Yagi) in North America.
8) Start of operation. We will commence our operation on Saturday, August 7 at 21:20UTC. Please don't expect any "extra" announcement on us being QRV or not from the Issyk Kul QTH on Saturday. Just start listening and calling us then.
9) Calling us. If you hear us, please call us spreading out every 200 Hz so we can easily decode you without QRM. If you are seeing our trace at a particular time, please call us with your callsign and OOO signal reports. That way we will know that you are calling and will quickly respond. Try to avoid using frequencies +/- 200 Hz from our calling frequency since they most likely will be occupied by some other station calling us. Spread out - don't spare the spectrum! We will always transmit in 1st sequence, no exceptions!!!!
10) Completing QSOs. Please send us 73 when you receive our final RRR so that we know we can begin answering the next station or return to calling CQ.
11) Station. We will employ their state-of-the-art PA from M2, ICOM IC7200 and IC756proIII. Antenna a 6M8GJ with full elevation capability. QTH is very low noise so we should be hearing just about anyone even with single Yagi and 400-500 W output power if they have ground gain. We will be shooting over the lake both on our Moonset and Moonrise so we will have significant ground gain between 9 and 13 degrees of our elevation. For more information on best EME procedures when working DXpedition please check out the following link: http://www.bigskyspaces.com/w7gj/DXPEDITIONS.htm
If you want to get a better feeling as to where we will be and what our operation will be like, I suggest you pay a visit to our last year website: http://6mEME.ex7mw.com
This year we strongly hope we will be able to complete especially with stations from Europe, South Africa, Australia and Pacific Ocean territories. Of course all the North and South American stations are more than welcome to call us, too! We have set up a Twitter and Facebook pages to inform you on the latest status regarding our DXpedition. Those of you interested in our progress and plans are encouraged to subscribe to our Twitter updates and add us to your Facebook friends by going to these links:
http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Chirkov/100000643323340?ref=search 73 and until final announcement to be made on Friday, August 6.
