That is probably it.  It does appear on the Russian Mission Control channel
long before (as in minutes) there is any indication of a problem.  As with
any significant incident, the final picture will turn out to be more
complicated, and this may well be a clue.

Howdy Amsaters,

I sold a car and got the radio out, but left the cabling in as it was really
in there....

                I need to re-create the cable connecting the control head to
the main body of a Yaesu FT-8900r. It looks like an RJ12 connector on each
end.

                What I don't know is do any of the conductors cross in the
cable???

Thanks and 73,
Joe kk0sd

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8; format=flowed

Happy happy, I finally got enough money to order a roof tower for my
future satellite antenna farm. First time ever that I can have a
rotatable setup and I'm tickled pink. It's a 3.3 meter tower that came
with a 3 meter steel pole and this will all be mounted on top of our
sheet metal roof. Friends over in Holland donated a KR-400 rotator and
Yaesu GS-050 thrust bearing and I have a question about that last one.

The tower's dimensions look like this (there are some photos and a pdf
<http://bx2abt.com/main/data/_uploaded/file/BV6HJ-OMseriesTower.pdf> on
bx2abt.com):

|
| ? ? 1.5 meter steel pole sticking out for 6/2/70cm yagis
|
|
--?? (1) top of tower with plateau for bearing
|*
|*
|*
|*
---? (2) plateau for second bearing
|**
|**
|**
---- (3) plateau for rotator
****
****
****

Distance 1-2 is 110 cm
Distance 2-3 is 50 cm

The bearing plateaus have pre-drilled holes that accommodate the Yaesu
GS-065 thrust bearing. The GS-050 thrust bearing I have is smaller and
doesn't fit, but can be made fit without much hassle.

My questions - with keeping in mind that where I live we often have very
strong storm-like winds (over 100 km/hr) and more than one typhoon every
year (up to and sometimes over 180 km/hr):

1 - will just a top bearing and a rotator be enough, or do I need indeed
two thrust bearings?
2 - if one will do, will the GS-050 be suitable?

I understand that thrust bearings are mainly used to reduce the weight
of the pole on the rotator, but I am more concerned about strong winds
warping the pole and putting sideways stress on the rotator. With the
foul weather here everything has to be as strong as possible, but on the
other hand, money has to be spend where it is needed, not where it's wasted.

Hope you can give some advice to this tower newbie. Cheers,

Hans

Thanks to Paul for getting me off my butt to finally edit this video!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSeR9I9O5Gs

Paul Stoetzer, N8HM, working AMSAT-OSCAR 92 (Fox-1D) in L/v mode
(1267.359 MHz uplink  /145.880 MHz downlink) using AMSAT's club
callsign, W3ZM/8, at the 2018 Dayton Hamvention.

Stations contacted:

02:30 WB8RJY
02:50 WB8OTH
03:26 NS3L
04:09 WA4SCA
04:33 KB2M
04:50 KE8FZT
06:47 W9EXP

There are cameos in the background of the video by fellow AMSATers Marty
N9EAT, Ruth KM4LAO, and others!

Equipment used was an Alinco DJ-G7T 144/430/1200 MHz handheld transceiver
for the uplink and a Kenwood TH-D74 handheld transceiver to receive the
downlink. The antenna is a Comet CYA-1216E yagi with holes drilled in the
boom to accommodate the three 2 meter Arrow Antenna elements.

The antenna rotator system behind Paul/in front of the tent is a commercial
system by Portable Rotation:
http://www.portablerotation.com/product/azel-portable-rotor-system/

He was not using it for this demo but it was tracking AO-92 during that
time.

Aside from this L-band demo, Paul used that for all the other AMSAT
satellite demos during Hamvention 2018. He had two Yaesu FT-817 radios on
the table and a computer controlling the rotators/antenna. The antenna
attached to it is the Alaskan Arrow II.

Yes they do! But you only need to crimp the RJs' opposite one another.

I've had several Yaesu mobiles, and while I don't know the 8900
specifically it seems logical that a straight patch cable (6P6C wires to
same pins on each end) is what you need.? I lost the short cable for my
FT-857 and made a new one, I have used both the stock cables in mobile
installations and built longer cables for the same for my various Yeasu
detachable head radios, they were all the same.

Yeah, like the one in that picture.? None of the wires are crossed, they
don't change pins.? Pin 1 to pin 1 and so forth.

About ARISS:

Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is a cooperative
venture of international amateur radio societies and the space agencies that
support the International Space Station (ISS). In the United States,
sponsors are the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American
Radio Relay League (ARRL), the Center for the Advancement of Science in
Space (CASIS) and  National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). 
The primary goal of ARISS is to promote exploration of science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics (STEM) topics by organizing scheduled contacts
via amateur radio between crew members aboard the ISS and students in
classrooms or informal education venues.  With the help of experienced
amateur radio volunteers, ISS crews speak directly with large audiences in a
variety of public forums.  Before and during these radio contacts, students,
teachers, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies,
and amateur radio.  For more informa
 tion, see www.ariss.org, www.amsat.org, and www.arrl.org.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Upcoming ARISS contact with Sint-Jozefcollege,
Turnhout,	Belgium

An International Space Station school contact has been planned with
participants at Sint-Jozefcollege, Turnhout, Belgium on 16 Oct. The event is
scheduled to begin at approximately 12:04 UTC. The duration of the contact
is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The contact will be direct
between OR4ISS and ON4NOK. The contact should be audible over Belgium and
adjacent areas. Interested parties are invited to listen in on the 145.80
MHz downlink. The contact is expected to be conducted in German/English.





Saint-Josephcollege is a school situated in Turnhout, in the north of
Belgium, in the middle of a green park with a lot of sporting facilities. 
It consists of 4 schools:  kindergarten, 2 primary schools and 1 secondary
school. The contact will be made with students of the secondary school and
one pupil of the primary school. It's a general secondary school with around
750 students (age 12-18), 45% are girls, 55% are boys. Almost 200 of these
students live here during the week in the boarding school, which is also
part of Saint-Josephcollege. We have different directions at our school
(ancient languages, modern languages, mathematics, science, economy, human
sciences). Our school prepares students for higher education, but beside the
lessons, as we are a Jesuit school, we think it's very important to
cultivate every student as a single person, letting them taste of all kind
of new opportunities, like this contact with ISS.









Participants will ask as many of the following questions as time allows:



1. Is space beautiful or is it just empty and black?

2. Can you describe weightlessness?

3. I am worried about climate change. Can you see the impact of this when you

   look down on earth?

4. Was it your dream to go to space?

5. If you could travel to Mars, would you do so, even if you knew you

   couldn't come back?

6. Can you make music in space, because sound can only travel in air and

   there is no air in space?

7. There is no running water in space. How do you supply enough water?

8. How many degrees Celcius is it in the space station and how many degrees

   is it outside?

9. Which experiments do you do on ISS? Which circumstances are not possible

   down on earth?

10. Which experiment did you like the most?

11. If you do so, how do you make oxygen in space and how do you filter CO2

12. How did you become an astronaut, or how would one, to your knowledge, go

    about becoming an astronaut?

13. What is your favourite food in space?

14. What do you do in your spare time? Can you follow news and social media?

15. Do you have trouble adjusting back to earth's gravity after 6 months in

    space?

16. What is, after months of isolation, your relation to time? How do you
    maintain your biological clock?

17. What happens when an astronaut gets really ill in space?

18. Do women and men have the same physical challenges adapting to life in

    microgravity?

19. Why is it so important to spend so much money on space travel, when we

    have so many problems like famine here on earth?

20. Wieviel Kilogramm Muskeln werden Sie ungef"hr nach Ihren Aufenthalt auf

    der ISS verloren haben? How many kilograms of muscles will you have lost

    after your stay in the ISS?

21. Was ist das sch"nste der Erde dass Sie aus dem Weltraum schon gesehen

    haben? What is the nicest part of earth you have seen in space?
