Stay tuned for more information on these and other interesting news items.

We begin the bulletin with news of a silent key.

It is with sadness that we announce that the key of Johann J Loubser, ZS
1ZE went silent on Thursday 7 October 2021 after losing the battle against
 cancer. He was a well-known member of the Boland Amateur Radio Club. We e
xtend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

PAUSE

You are listening to a news bulletin of the South African Radio League.

THANK YOU FOR CQ HOU KOERS AND JAMBOREE ON THE AIR

A big word of thanks to all the radio amateurs who took the time and effor
t to support the Scouts, Guides, and Voortrekkers during CQ Hou Koers
 and Jamboree on the Air last weekend! You did something AWESOME!

THE NATIONAL CW SPEED WEEK FROM TODAY UNTIL SATURDAY

The National CW Speed Week started at 04:00 UTC (06:00 CAT) this morning S
unday 24 October and will end at 16:00 UTC (18:00 CAT) on Saturday 30 Octo
ber 2021. The activity will take place on 80, 40 and 20 metres and you m
ay not work the same call sign more than ONCE on each band. The idea is to
 make as many contacts as you can within a 7-day calendar period; the goal
 is to log all contacts on the RaDAR Sport Log, developed by Eddie, ZS
6BNE. Visit www.radarops.co.za/zsportal; you will need a log-in PIN from E
ddie in order to take part. The PIN allows you to edit your own log if you
 have made an error.

The criteria for the week will be - CW sent using any paddle or any straig
ht key, nothing less than 20 wpm character speed or faster, will quali
fy you to take part. You will need to declare in the comments column on th
e logging system what kind of key you used - straight or paddle. The Radar
 system self-generates the points, i.e., two QSOs confirmed will yield
 two points each and a QSO without a conformation will give you ONE point
 each, without a QSL confirming a match. So, the idea is to make sure
 your friends actually log on the system, to gain the double points. Dur
ing the week, anyone can at any time, spot who spoke to whom, either
 in text form on the RaDAR system or on a bar graph format on the same sys
tem. Everyone logs in one place; just refresh your screen to spot the late
st happening.

THE IARU REGION 1 CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOP

The -Shaping the Future' Workshop has been busy since Satu
rday 16 October. The work of this Workshop closed yesterday with Module 6:
 Actions, milestones, deliverables, and timescales. For the Conferen
ce, Committee 2 finalised the Region 1 Budget yesterday afternoon.

The Closing Plenary will be held at 15:00 CAT this afternoon with the C2 r
eport to Conference, the election of the new EC, the voting for the ve
nue for next conference and the G2BVN Committee Report to Conference.

You are listening to a news bulletin of the South African Radio League.

THE SARC TALKING TECH POWER HOUR ON 27 OCTOBER

Are you interested or experienced in Radio Fox Hunting? Then this one is f
or you. The Sandton ARC Talking Tech Power Hour topic for October is

en

BACAR OM TE VLIEG OP 30 OKTOBER

Bly ingeskakel vir meer inligting oor hierdie en ander interessante nuus i
tems.

Ons begin die nuus met die nuus van 'n stil sleutel.

Dit is met hartseer dat ons aankondig dat die sleutel van Johann J Loubser
, ZS1ZE, op Donderdag 7 Oktober 2021 stil geword het nadat hy die stry
d teen kanker verloor het. Hy was 'n bekende lid van die Boland Amateurrad
ioklub. Ons betuig ons innige meegevoel met sy familie en vriende.

POUSE

Jy luister na ʼn nuus uitsending van die Suid-Afrikaanse Radioliga.

DANKIE VIR CQ HOU KOERS EN JAMBOREE OP DIE LUG

'n Groot woord van dank aan al die radio amateurs wat die afgelope naweek
 tyd en moeite geneem het om die Padvinder, Gidse en Voortrekkers te ond
ersteun tydens CQ Hou Koers en Jamboree op die Lug! Jy het iets ontsagwekk
end gedoen!

DIE NASIONALE GG SPOED WEEK VANAF VANDAG TOT SATERDAG

Die National GG Spoed --Week het vanoggend Sondag 24 Oktob
er om 04:00 UTC (06:00 SAT) begin en eindig om 16:00 UTC (18:00 SAT) op Sa
terdag 30 Oktober 2021. Die aktiwiteit vind plaas op 80, 40 en 20 meter
 en jy mag nie dieselfde roepsein meer as EEN keer op elke band werk nie.
 Die idee is om soveel moontlik kontakte te maak binne 'n kalender tydperk
 van 7 dae; die doel is om alle kontakte op die RaDAR Sport Log, ontwikk
el deur Eddie, ZS6BNE, in te dien. Besoek www.radarops.co.za/zsportal
, jy benodig 'n aanmeld-PIN vanaf Eddie om deel te neem. Met die PIN kan
 jy jou eie logboek wysig as jy 'n fout begaan het.

Die kriteria vir die week sal wees - GG wat met 'n paddle of 'n reguit sle
utel gestuur word, niks minder as 20 wpm karakter-spoed of vinniger nie
, sal jou in staat stel om deel te neem. Jy moet in die kommentaar-kolom
 op die logstelsel verklaar watter soort sleutel jy gebruik het - reguit o
f paddle. Die Radar-stelsel genereer self die punte, dit wil sê,
 twee bevestigde QSOs lewer elk twee punte en 'n QSO sonder 'n bevestiging
 gee jou een punt. Die idee is dus om te verseker dat jou vriende op die s
telsel indien om die dubbele punte te verdien. Gedurende die week kan enig
iemand te eniger tyd sien wie met wie gepraat het, hetsy in teksvorm op
 die RaDAR-stelsel of op 'n staafgrafiek-formaat op dieselfde stelsel. Alm
al teken op een plek aan; verfris net jou skerm om die nuutste gebeurtenis
se te sien.

Die -Vorming van die Toekoms'-werkswinkel is sedert Saterd
ag 16 Oktober besig. Die werk van hierdie werkswinkel is gister afgesluit
