    HRN 377, BS#11: ARRL, CQ, Happy New Year
    HamRadioNow



    Published on Dec 30, 2017
    The ARRL has yet another proposal coming to the January Board Meeting — a fairly extensive revision to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws with some curious changes in how the board can remove a member and a Director. CQ is pointing it out, but they've got their own trouble getting issues printed. And our friend Dan KB6NU has details on his Blog. David and Gary review the review.

    Then they talk about the state of and future of HamRadioNow as Gary plans his escape.

There is news of new Australian Shortwave broadcasting, the return of Radio Caroline and many Happy New Years SSTV images. Signal was very good with little fading.

    Unboxing the Tecsun PL-880: my next travel companion to South America
    Oxford Shortwave Log



    Published on Jan 1, 2018
    Hi there, after three visits to Brazil in the past year, of which the last two I had the brilliant Eton Satellit to accompany me, I decided it was time to make a change for my next trip in 2018. As I think I explained in another of my recent videos, travelling and DXing in South America is a privilege really and an opportunity I always want to make the most of. Therefore, I need the best possible portable radio with me. I consider the Eton and this radio to be the best on the market and so this was the only option. Whilst the SYNC on this radio is a disappointment, it's ability to handle and large antenna is a big positive and of course it's renowned to be incredibly sensitive - as many of you guys know first-hand. I'm very much looking forward to putting it through it's paces.

    Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!

    Hi there, here's a rather 'muddy' daytime signal from Topolná, with the Elaf, Perseus and Icom. Not sure which one of these pulls it off the best, but still, it was very nice to copy the Czech Republic at that time of day!

    Recorded in Oxford UK on 18/12/17 at 13:36 hrs UTC, using a Wellbrook ALA1530 magnetic loop antenna outdoors. Thanks for watching.

    Collection of radio traffic and EAMs at 8992 kHz
    Curt Rowlett



    Published on Jan 5, 2018
    Collection of recordings of military traffic on the High Frequency Global Communications System network (HF-GCS). Recorded using a WebSDR located in Warrenton, Virginia, about 60 miles from Andrews Air Force base. (UTC time and date can be seen in the clock widget running at the top right of the screen).

    What you are hearing is known as an Emergency Action Message (EAM). These transmissions are part of the High Frequency Global Communications System (HF-GCS) run by the United States military as a way to communicate with aircraft in flight, and certain Navy vessels, including submarines.

    According to Wikipedia, an EAM is "a preformatted message that directs nuclear-capable forces to execute specific Major Attack Options or Limited Attack Options in a nuclear war." More information about EAMs can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergenc...

    The format for an EAM is a six character preamble, repeated two or three times, followed by "STAND BY, MESSAGE FOLLOWS." Next, a long string of numbers or letters is repeated using the military phonetic alphabet and spoken at the rate of one character per second.

    Messages to specific call signs (Rounder, Provisional, Midas Touch) may also be included.

    Skyking messages are shorter and always include the preamble, "SKYKING SKYKING DO NOT ANSWER. MESSAGE FOLLOWS" which is then followed by a short string of characters, ending with an authentication code. Skyking messages have top priority and are intended for the Army Material Command and Army Contracting Command of the United States Strategic Command. Skyking is the shared callsign for nuclear Single Integrated Operation Plan aircraft and missile crews, all of whom copy the messages.

    EAMs and Skyking are discussed here: http://www.monitoringtimes.com/html/e...

    Hi there, I never get tired of copying any transatlantic signal on medium wave. CBC Radio 1 are frequently heard but, still it still feels special.

    Recorded in Oxford UK on 24/11/17 at 04:59 hrs UTC using an Elad FDM DUO and Wellbrook ALA1530 magnetic loop antenna outdoors. Thanks for watching.

    Rate My Radio



    Published on Jan 5, 2018
    Jarrad VK3BL goes through the Icom IC-7300's settings menus and describes what each function does and when to use it.

    We also provide advice on recommended settings for your station, as well as covering where to find and how to use basic functions such as the notch filter.

    Jarrad demonstrates how settings change the operating experience, and talks about his personal preferences.

    Please let us know if you enjoyed the video, and please do comment. We find the most rewarding aspect of making youtube videos is making new friends and having great discussions with Hams from all over the world.
