 AMATEUR RADIO MAGAZINE.

 Issue number three for 2021 is on the press, so says
 Editor in Chief, Roger Harrison VK2ZRH.

 It is scheduled to reach your mail box and/or newsagent
 real soon now during this month. 

 The electronic edition will be available for download by
 members at around the same time.

 To celebrate the centenary of the Australian Air Force, this
 issues front cover features a dramatic picture of a
 Royal Australian Air Force Globemaster C-17 being guarded by
 dog handler Corporal Brodie McIntyre and working dog Kesha
 at RAAF Base Darwin.

 The purpose is to highlight the feature article on special
 callsigns VI 100 AF and VK 100 AF by Stu VK8NSB. 

 The photograph was provided by AF2021 and permission to use
 it granted by the Australian Defence Force.

 In addition, this issue of Amateur Radio magazine  the only
 magazine for Australian amateurs, includes a good dose of
 technical articles and other features.

 The enduring issue of antennas is well-covered in this issue
 
 Firstly, we have Part 1 of a series titled Unravelling the
 mysteries of connecting radios to antennas, by Brian Clarke
 VK2GCE, while Luigi Destefano VK3AQZ launches his digitally
 controlled antenna tuner project.

 In addition, Dale Hughes VK1DSH and Dimitrios Tsifakis VK2COW
 give us the low-down on long-range wideband digital
 transmissions, with some practicalities on putting a Lo-Ra
 station together.

 For those interested in retro radio gear, Ray Robinson VK2NO
 reviews the Realistic DX160 receiver  a surprising
 performer.

 Is amateur radio dying or just asleep at the wheel?
 A statistical analysis of amateur licence data by
 Marc Hillman VK3OHM provides some thoughtful insight.

 Theres a whole lot more to Issue 3 of Amateur Radio
 magazine, but now we have to reveal the real news 
 Editor in Chief, Roger Harrison VK2ZRH, has resigned and
 moved to the Gold Coast in VK4.

 He said when he took on the job last year of getting
 AR magazine back on-track that hed only be doing it for
 a limited period. Once Issue 2 was completed earlier this
 year, he stepped back and reduced his involvement. 

 Now hes off to ride the roller coasters in the Gold Coast
 adventure parks, and whatever else there is to do in
 South East Queensland.

 In leaving, Roger thanked all those who lent a hand in
 producing the magazine. Roger advises that he is definitely
 retaining his VK2ZRH callsign.

 DISCUSSION POINT 

 Hello, Im Geoff Emery, VK4ZPP, and Ive been thinking.
 
 One of the features of being a representative body is that
 there are many tasks that go on that we members away from the
 centre of activity dont usually get to look at close up.

 Within our clubs, there may be web sites and social media
 accounts to administer along with the usual functional and
 statutory tasks that pertain to any club. Reporting to the
 membership as well as regulatory bodies such as the sporting
 code administration and the registrar of incorporated
 associations are necessary to keep a local branch going. With
 radio clubs associated with the Wireless Institute of
 Australia it is just a matter of keeping up the details on
 the WIA web and recording the membership details to obtain
 the discount priced club insurance, pretty much. Obviously,
 depending on your clubs size and activities, there might be
 much more behind the scenes organisation.

 The WIA represents the whole Australian amateur cohort in the
 administrative structure that starts with the United Nations
 through the International Telecommunications Union to the
 International Amateur Radio Union and thence to the Region 3.
 Locally, it is with the Australian Communications and Media
 Authority as the Government regulator of the local rules and
 regulations and the various international treaties that the
 WIA fulfils a national role. What this means is that there is
 a core of knowledgeable people who are depended upon to
 advise the WIA Board and represent the WIA at meetings and
 conferences.

 Not only are there the face to face and the teleconferences
 but there are reams of documents to glean and papers to
 prepare and agree the content within. People bring a level of
 expertise to these tasks and many have years of experience in
 their professional roles and it is ultimately you and I who
 share the benefits of this background work.

 To the busy people who have been committed to gathering
 opinion and formulating the formal responses, I must
 say a very heart felt Thank You. Your work has not gone
 unnoticed and the late nights and conferences are appreciated
 by your fellow amateurs.

 Im Geoff Emery VK4ZPP & thats what I think, how about you?

 REGION ONE

 UK Regulator Ofcom may remove product listings from eBay

 BBC reports the online sales platform eBay is handing Ofcom
 the power to remove listings, theoretically this could enable
 Ofcom to remove products that do not conform to EMC
 requirements

 eBay said the move was designed to speed up the removal of
 "illegal or unsafe items" without waiting for approval from
 the company.

 Only selected, trusted authorities will have access to the
 new tools. But those that do will have "the ability to take
 down any listings from the marketplace themselves", the
 company said.

 More than 50 authorities around the world are already
 involved in the early stages of the project, it added.

 Irish Radio Transmitters Society News reports that at their
 recent AGM, a proposal to introduce a new licence level in
 Eire was defeated.

 This was the only motion before the 2021 AGM and came from
 the Galway Radio Experimenters Club who asked that IRTS,
 in representing Ireland, support the inclusion of a new
 Licence Level as part of a 3 year plan. Following a
 well-researched and well-presented case by GREC, the motion
 was defeated by the narrowest of margins.

 Eire only has one class of licence permitting up to 1 kW
 output. The HAREC equivalent exam comprises 60 questions,
 substantially fewer than the proposed RSGB Direct-to-Full
 exam in the UK.  Although the company that runs the RSGB
 online exams, TestReach Ltd is based in Dublin, no online
 exams are available in the country. All exams are in-person
 held infrequently at a limited number of testing centres.




 REGION TWO

 The U.S. Congress is reportedly taking steps to officially
 recognize the important contributions made by amateur
 radio operators. According to an article on the website of
 the ARRL, Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (Arizona) has introduced
 a bipartisan resolution to designate April 18, 2022 as
 National Amateur Radio Operators Day.

 April 18th is the anniversary of the founding of the
 International Amateur Radio Union, the  IARU which was
 established in 1925.

 The resolution cites the Amateur Radio Emergency Service for
 providing invaluable emergency communications services
 following recent natural disasters, including, but not
 limited to, helping coordinate disaster relief efforts
 following Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Maria and other
 extreme weather disasters.

 Debbie Lesko had introduced a similar bill last year at the
 request of Raymond Anderson, a 12-year-old radio amateur.



 Brazil's national amateur radio society LABRE is campaigning
 for the abolition of taxes on amateur radio equipment.
 They have been working on this since 2009, to no avail, BUT
 now a well presented petition is available on the LABRE website



 Webinar 'RF Exposure in the Time of Conspiracies'

 ARRL reports the IEEE COMAR committee ran this webinar
 last Wednesday with a group of experts on health and safety
 issues related to electromagnetic fields, from power line
 through microwave frequency ranges.

 Its primary focus was on biological effects of non-ionizing
 electromagnetic radiation and to highlight some of the
 news articles, comments, etc. that purport to declare the
 hazardous nature of exposure to weak RF fields, such as those
 posed by new 5G wireless communications base stations,
 explain how they are not scientifically based and some ideas
 on how to better communicate what we really know about
 potential health effects, said COMAR chair Ric Tell, K5UJU.

 REGION THREE

 New 60 m/5 MHz. WRC-15 sub-licence now available for
 New Zealand Hams

 Following the end of the two channel 60 m NZ trial in 2020,
 as previously broadcast on the news you can trust, from YOUR
 WIA, that Bob ZL2CA had been successful in obtaining
 clearance of the new WRC-15 Amateur Secondary Allocation of
 5351.5 to 5366.5 kHz, NZART is pleased to announce that
 negotiations with their regulator RSM have been successful
 in obtaining a licence to allow operation for all
 New Zealand amateur operators to use 60 m (5 MHz) using the
 WRC-15 allocation.

 As with their old 60m trial, all those who wish to operate
 on the band must complete and sign the new sub-licence which
 sets out the terms of operation before they can operate.

 SUMMITS ON THE AIR, WORLD WIDE FLORA, FAUNA PROGRAM and
 other "ADVENTURE" GROUPS.

 www.wwffaustralia.com/

 Jimmy M 0 HGY and his dad Tom Read M 1 EYP can now claim to
 have summited every hill and mountain in Wales, following a
 trip in early May. 

 Between them, they set up amateur radio equipment at the
 summit and 95 QSOs, some 27 of which were "summit-to-summit"
 with other mountain-top radio operators and DX into Brazil
 with their 5 watt QRP set-up.

 Wales is not the first country to have been "completed" - i.e.
 had a successful radio activation on every summit by Tom and
 Jimmy.  They have already done likewise in England and
 Northern Ireland - and, for what it is worth - Isle of Man,
 Jersey, Guernsey and the Netherlands!  They had believed they
 had conquered Luxembourg too in 2019 - but recent
 resurveying has revealed a fifth summit in the small nation
 so a future trip will be necessary to recomplete!

 Ham Radio Prep teams up with FliteTest crew for high-powered
 radio control video.

 Ham Radio Prep, the USA's fastest growing amateur radio
 education program, recently partnered with FliteTest in the
 production of a video to promote the use of ham radio for
 high-powered hobby flights as well as the use of activities
 such as drones in science, technology, engineering and
 mathematics education.

 The video, produced on FliteTests YouTube channel at
 youtu.be/iqxKOk0YL_g , is titled Laser Gun Battle between
 Airplane and Gun Turret! and showed the FliteTest crew
 building a system and plane that allowed the team to
 simulate when a radio-controlled plane was hit in the air
 with a laser beam shot from the ground and vice versa.

 The video is fast-paced, fun and shows how technology,
 especially amateur radio, can be used to promote not only
 the advancement of technology, but also is helpful in
 advancing STEM education, a service FliteTest provides to
 educators.

 The FliteTest video promotes the use of amateur radio for
 hobby flight operations because ham licenses allow more
 power and more frequencies than unlicensed use for radio
 control operations, Chuck Gysi, general manager of
 Ham Radio Prep, said.

 WW SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS --- COMPUTING

 Back in 2018 we first told you about 'System Bus Radio' which
 is code and a web based app that allows you to transmit RF
 directly from your computer without ANY transmitting
 hardware. It works on the principle of manipulating the
 unintentional RF radiation produced by a computers system
 bus by sending instructions that can produce different AM
 tones. The idea is to demonstrate how unintentional radiation
 from computers could be a security risk.

 Recently the creator of System Bus Radio has uploaded a
 guide on receiving the generated signals with an RTL-SDR.
 He recommends using an RTL-SDR with up converter, balun and 
 an AM loop antenna. He then shows how he was able to receive
 the signals from his MacBook Pro M1, noting that he was able
 to receive audible signals at frequencies between 63 kHz to
 5.5 MHz.

 WW SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS - FEMALES IN RADIO.

 Despite the rapid development of technology such as
 smartphones, broadband and others, amateur radio still has a
 place among its fans.

 In the past, this kind of hobby was often associated with
 men, but now more and more women are beginning to use
 amateur radio to fill their free time.

 Enter Dr Norsiah Bahari who says that her interest in
 amateur radio began in 2010, when she was pursuing her
 doctorate degree with the need to conduct studies on
 flora and soil in the Endau-Rompin National Park in Pahang.
 This park lies northeast of Johor covering an area of
 approximately 870 km2 , making it the second-largest national
 park in Peninsular Malaysia.

 I was made to understand that at that time there was no 
  telephone line, especially around the study area and the
  only telecommunication medium available would be ham radio.

  Therefore, I started taking classes and learning the
  ins-and-outs of amateur radio, as well as sitting for the
  exam to get my amateur licence" She said.

 Although she had completed her research years ago, amateur 
 radio has now become her hobby; in fact her interest is also
 supported by her husband.

 This station will automatically record and analyse the
 telemetry from the Spanish Birds, all of them designed and
 built by AMSAT EA, as well as remote control in the event
 that actions are necessary once in space, and will be able
 to receive instructions from Earth to modify its operation,

       in the hills North East of the Perth CBD, about half
       an hours drive from Perth Airport, in the modern
       recreation and sport facility.

       So why are we telling you this? Thats easy. Because
       we reckon we shouldnt be keeping this event to
       ourselves, so were inviting you mob from the rest of
       Australia to come across the paddock and visit Western
       Australia in the spring.  Weve got the best wildflowers
       in the country.

       October is Wildflower season, and the locality is
       close to several National Parks, the Avon Valley and
       nature reserves, and only a short drive to the Swan
       Valley wine region.

       Theres a motel ten minutes away, and a variety of B&B
       style options in the area, as well as caravan parks
       about twenty minutes away.

       I hope Ive tempted you to consider using PerthTech as
       an excuse to make the journey West, and well do our
       best to make you welcome.

       Check out our website, vk6.net, for information and
       updates, and in the very near future, a link to the
       booking site. Oh I nearly forgot - the event is
       basically free. Well be charging a modest fee to
