• Amateur Radio Operators Play Vital Communication Role During Emergencies

Added at 2017-03-29 00:04:02

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



Volunteers can serve as link between Santa Barbara County Emergency Operation Center and hospitals, and assist first responders: During fires, earthquakes and other emergencies, licensed amateur radio operators provide a vital service to help communities communicate. The Amateur Radio Emergency Services, or ARES, keeps key officials in contact during emergencies when more traditional communication methods may not be available. "It's a way to take your hobby and do something useful for the community," said Lou Dartanner, Santa Barbara County ARES district coordinator who has participated in the organization since the 1980s. "And especially in a disaster or emergency it allows us do some more mundane things that releases the fire personnel or law enforcement personnel to go do more important things." Dartanner said the volunteer organization provides its members with an opportunity to do what they can and like to do. "You spend all this money on this radio equipment, it's nice to be able to go out there and use it to do some good," he said. The ham radio operators are included in the county disaster plan, and during a declared emergency ARES members work out of the Emergency Operations Center, where a complete radio system allows communication between the Public Health Department and hospitals.

• Students Collaborate in NASA-Sponsored Program

Added at 2017-03-28 00:19:07

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



CubeSat allows students to track satellite with ground station: Engineering students at the University have been working on a project, CubeSat, which will track a small satellite using a ground station. The satellite will communicate with the ground station to gather data, which will be shared with information from other universities, such as Virginia Tech and Old Dominion. CubeSat is sponsored by NASA and collaborates with other universities through the Virginia Space Grant Consortium. CubeSat will be collecting data on atmospheric drag in low earth orbit. Currently, the students are finishing the design phase of the ground stations, which involves selecting proper equipment and securing funding for necessary purchases from the University. After the design phase of the project, students will start prototyping the stations. This project is conducted with Amateur Radio Club W4UVA. W4UVA is responsible for designing, constructing and operating two ground stations. The radio club has helped with a large portion of the ground station design and will operate the ground station and help students gather data. "In addition, a number of students -- including myself -- have obtained amateur radio licenses in order to legally operate and test our radio setups," Mitchell said.



• Planet-Sized 'Waves' Spotted in the Sun's Atmosphere

Added at 2017-03-28 00:18:33

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



Long-sought features may help researchers to improve models of solar activity and predict space weather. Huge ripples in Earth's atmosphere called Rossby waves help to steer the planet's jet streams and weather patterns. Now, a study in Nature Astronomy offers the best evidence yet that similar large-scale features also exist on the Sun1. Rossby waves were discovered in Earth's atmosphere in the late 1930s. Driven by a planet's rotation, they've been seen in the atmospheres of other planets, as well as in Earth's oceans. In theory, these waves can form in any rotating fluid, says Scott McIntosh, a solar physicist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado and lead study author. Researchers have long sought evidence of Rossby waves on the Sun, he says. And an enhanced understanding of these features and their movements could help scientists to better predict the formation of sunspots and the eruption of solar flares.



• Amateur Radio Volunteers Needed for Severe Weather Season

Added at 2017-03-28 00:17:51

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



Joplin -- Even though severe weather season is already here, it's not too late for you to play an important role in helping to keep the community safe. Volunteers with the Joplin Amateur Radio Club say amateur radio can offer you a way to help warn those around you about impending severe weather. They say all you need to get started is your license, which costs about $15, and requires a test. During severe weather, amateur radio operators assist the National Weather Service by reporting on storms from home or the field. After a storm has passed through, they can help by reporting damage, coordinating communications and assisting in search and rescue efforts. Volunteers say it is a rewarding way to help keep your loved ones safe.

in eHam.net News, Language: EN



WARREN -- Radio as a powerful expression of freedom was the theme Saturday at the Warren Trumbull County Public Library, where about 30 people heard a lecture and several members of the Warren Amateur Radio Association were on hand to showcase the history of radio. The event was part of the One Book / One Community program focused on "All the Light We Cannot See," a World War II-era novel by Cleveland native Anthony Doerr. The radio and its effects on the war are a main theme of the book. Guest speaker was Max V. Grubb, Ph.D., a communications professional and assistant professor of communications at Youngstown State University. Members of the Warren Amateur Radio Association said their goal in exhibiting old radios was to try to get youth and others interested in radio.
