->>>FCC Fixes Typographical Errors in Part 97

http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2008/03/13/100/?nc=1
The FCC released a Memorandum Opinion and Order on Wednesday, March 12,
in an effort to correct typographical errors in Commission’s Rules,
including rules affecting Part 97, the Amateur Radio Service. According
to the FCC, these changes are “non-substantive editorial revisions” and
do not introduce new rules or change old rules applicable to Amateur
Radio operators.
75.5-81 GHz
In this MOO, the FCC is updating the Allocation Table and service rules
for the Amateur Radio Service with regard to the band 75.5-81 GHz. In
2003, the Commission released a Report & Order, commonly called the
70/80/90 GHz R&O, that adopted a transition plan for the amateur use of
the segment 75.5-76 GHz. The Commission concluded that moving Amateur
Radio operations out of the 75.5-76 GHz band would not pose a major
inconvenience to the Amateur Radio Service, but would “substantially
benefit future fixed services, because it would eliminate the
possibility of harmful interference from amateurs.” Accordingly, the
primary allocations to the Amateur and Amateur Satellite Services in
the 75.5-76 GHz band were downgraded from primary to secondary status,
with secondary use ceasing on January 1, 2006. After that date, the
band 75.5-76 GHz was no longer available for use by the Amateur Service
or the Amateur Satellite Service.
This transition plan was codified in footnote US387 and in Section
97.303(r)(3) of the Commission’s Amateur Service rules. Because the
transition period has concluded, the Commission “removed expired
footnote US387 from the list of U.S. footnotes and we are amending Part
97 of the Commission’s Rules to reflect this allocation change by: (1)
revising the entry “75.5-81.0” GHz in Section 97.301(a) to read “76-81″
GHz; (2) removing paragraphs (r)(2) and (r)(3) from Section 97.303; and
(3) renumbering paragraph (r)(1) as paragraph (r).”
Phone Band Expansion
In October 2006, the FCC released a Report & Order, the Amateur Phone
Band Expansion R&O, that expanded the phone bands. With the release of
the MOO, the FCC is making two changes.
The first change to the October 2006 R&O is simply a correction of a
typographical error in the Rules for the General phone allocation on 15
meters. In the Amateur Phone Band Expansion R&O, the Commission revised
21.30-21.45 MHz to read 21.275-21.45 MHz, but the current codification
of the rule does not reflect this change. All the Commission did was to
bring the Rules into alignment with the R&O.
The second change fixed an omission in the Novice/Technician allocation
on 40 meters. The FCC found that when the Amateur Phone Band Expansion
R&O was released, “the Commission expanded the frequency segment
authorized for amateur voice communications within the 40 meter band by
correspondingly reducing a band segment used for narrowband emission
types by 25 kHz, from 7.100-7.150 MHz to 7.100-7.125 MHz.” The revised
frequency table in Section 97.301(e) of the FCC’s Rules that lists
authorized frequency bands for Novice and Technician Class
inadvertently omitted 7.100-7.125 MHz from Regions 1 and 3. “Because
the Amateur Phone Band Expansion R&O addressed the division of amateur
frequencies among permissible emission types and not between geographic
ITU Regions, we must further amend Section 97.301(e), as set forth in
Appendix C, to implement the Commission’s decision. Specifically, we
are revising the 40 meter band by reinserting the segment ‘7.100-7.125’
MHz in the Region 1 and Region 3 columns.”
Double Negative
The FCC also took the opportunity to remove a double negative from
Section 97.303(b). Before the release of the MOO, this Section read:
“No amateur station transmitting in the 1900-2000 kHz segment, the 70
cm band, the 33 cm band, the 23 cm band, the 13 cm band, the 9 cm band,
the 5 cm band, the 3 cm band, the 24.05-24.25 GHz segment, the 76-77.5
GHz segment, the 78-81 GHz segment, the 136-141 GHz segment, and the
241-248 GHz segment SHALL NOT cause harmful interference to, nor is
protected from interference due to the operation of, the Federal
radiolocation service.” The FCC chose to take out the word “NOT” to
bring the rule’s words in line with the spirit of the rule.

->>>Station Locator Service New for Field Day 2008

This year, for the first time, the ARRL has put together a Station
Locator to help amateurs or those interested in Amateur Radio find a
Field Day site near them. According to ARRL Field Day Manager Dan
Henderson, N1ND, many amateurs have been asking for something like this
for many years.
If your group would like to be a part of the Station Locator Service,
it’s easy to get started. Just go to the Field Day Station Locator Web
site ( http://www2.arrl.org/contests/announcements/fd/locator.php ) and
follow the instructions.
To help you out, Henderson has prepared a FAQ for the Field Day Station
Locator.
Q) How does our Field Day site get listed on the map?
A) A club official or Field Day Chairman needs to go to the Web site.
Once there, click on the link for “Add a Station” and follow the
instructions.
Q) I put in the name of the park where we will be holding Field Day but
got the message that the program can’t find it. What do I do?
A) You should use a street address for the location. Unfortunately, the
mapping program doesn’t have a 100 percent complete database of park
names and public site names. You may use a latitude/longitude — enter
the values separated by a comma (e.g. 42.345N, 85.445W) and set the
city to NONE).
Q) I put in a street address but the map locator put me it in a wrong
location on the street. What do I do?
A) While in the data input or edit screen, use your cursor to move the
red “pin” to the correct location on the map.
Q) What if I put in the wrong information or something about our Field
Day operation changes?
A) The person who input the data will be able to edit the entry. Simply
follow the “Add a Station” link and then select “Edit this entry” next
to the one to correct.
Q). I tried to enter my club’s information, but I was denied access.
What do I do?
A) To help ensure that only one person is managing a club’s entry, you
must be logged onto the site with your ARRL member ID and password. If
you are not an ARRL member, ask a member of the club who is to be
responsible for adding the club’s information to the site.
Q) I am looking for a Field Day operation to attend. How do I use the
site?
A) Begin by typing in the city and state where you would like to
search, something like “Brooklyn, New York” or “Anaheim, California.”
Depending on the geographic location, the map will take you to the area
you list. If a Field Day operation has been registered for that general
area, a red “pin” will show on the map. If you click on the red pin,
the details for that site will appear in the box on the right hand side
of the screen. If you don’t see a red pin, scroll out a level to find
one near the location you listed. It is also possible to drag the map
to other areas by holding down the left button on your mouse and then
moving the map around. You can also scroll in and out using the +/-
buttons on the left side of the map. You may also zoom in and center by
double-clicking with the mouse near the red pin.
Q) I found a red pin near where I will be. Where do I find the
information on that site?
A) Each entry has a contact person with either an e-mail address or
phone number who should be able to help you. It will appear on the
right side of the box when you click on the red pin for an entry.
Q) I found an entry with wrong information. What should I do?
A) Please contact the person whose name appears as the contact person
for that site. ARRL HQ does not have detailed information on the site.
Q) I want to check on our club’s information. What should I do?
A) Type in the call sign that will be used and you will be taken to the
location and club information.
ARRL Field Day will be held June 28-29. For more information, please
visit the Field Day Web page (http://www2.arrl.org/fieldday ) .

->>>2008 – Make this the Year that YOU go to Dayton Hamvention®

KA2ANF says:  “Have you always wanted to go to Dayton Hamvention,
but never got around to it?  Well, now might be a good time to start
making your plans.  The ARRL is constantly adding new and attractive
things to their ‘exhibition setup’.  Why not come and see this year?
And besides, Katie — W1KRB will be there!”

->>>ARRL EXPO Getting in Gear for 2008 Dayton Hamvention®

ARRL EXPO Coordinator Katie Breen, W1KRB, relays that plans for the
ARRL EXPO (http://www.arrl.org/expo ) at this year’s Dayton Hamvention®
are coming together nicely: “Our current focus is on the new look and
feel of our space. In past Hamventions, Forum Room 5 was located
adjacent to the ARRL space. It is now moving to the Silver Arena,
giving us more room and the opportunity to spread out a bit and do more
creative things inside the EXPO.”
Breen said that the ARRL EXPO team is looking at expanding the Field
Services area to accommodate more programs and activities, including a
larger meet-and-greet area for members to visit with ARRL President
Harrison, W5ZN, as well as the many other league officials and staff
that will be on hand to answer any questions.
“The Field Services area will boast a large interactive display devoted
to Logbook of the World for real time demonstrations, as well as a
question-and-answer session with ARRL Web and Software Development
Manager and LoTW developer Jon Bloom, KE3Z,” Breen added.
Personnel from the ARRL DXCC Branch will be on hand to check DX cards
and applications for all ARRL awards and JARL awards. All cards,
including old cards, cards from deleted countries and cards for 160
meters, will be eligible for checking. Applications will be limited to
120 cards; more cards will be checked as time and volunteer Card
Checkers are available. See the DXCC Web site for the latest program
information and current forms
The ARRL Bookstore and Membership area will continue to buzz with
activity, particularly with all of the new publications and products
being offered this year. QST Editor Steve Ford, WB8IMY, will be on hand
to sign your new copy of ARRL’s VHF Digital Handbook. QST Contributing
Editor and author of the popular QST column “Hands-On Radio” H. Ward
Silver, N0AX, will also be available to sign copies of his latest book,
ARRL’s Hands-On Radio Experiments. The new desktop and pocket-sized
versions of the ARRL Repeater Directory are sure to be a hit with their
new handy indexing tabs on the cover, easier-to-read listings and “Key
to Repeater Notes” located right up front.
This is a good time to remind everyone to visit the Dayton Hamvention
Web site and buy your tickets now for the discounted rate. Hotel rooms
are filling up, so don’t think twice — if you’ve always wanted to
attend Hamvention and have never had the chance, make this year your
year to go. Hotels in the Dayton area can be found at the Dayton
Montgomery County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau Web site. Keep
up-to-date with all the ARRL EXPO activities on the ARRL Web site. (

->>>’Tis the Season” — SKYWARN season, that is!
SKYWARNT Spotter Classes For 2008
George Sabbi — KC2GLG
ARRL NNJ Section ARES DEC – SKYWARN

Spring brings the start of the warm season Severe Weather time of year
and with that, the NWS will once again offer many SKYWARNT Spotter
Training Classes throughout and around the ARRL Hudson Division and
across the area.

For those who have attended SKYWARNT Spotter Classes in the past, if
its been more than 3 years since you attended one, the NWS wants you to
re-train this year as there have been many changes in both Weather
Technology and the Warning Process is carried out. Not the least of
which is that the NWS is now issuing Storm Based Warnings as opposed to
the previous methodology of whole County Based Warnings.

The Websites listed below will assist you with finding a Class within
the your County Warning Area (CWA). Note the pre-registration
requirements (pre-registration is now mandatory in some locations) and
the recent introduction of a short Multiple Choice/True-False Test
following the Class in some locations.

NWS Albany NY:  http://www.erh.noaa.gov/aly/Skywarn.htm
NWS Binghamton NY:
http://www.erh.noaa.gov/bgm/spotters_skywarn/skywarn2.shtml
NWS Mt Holly NJ: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/er/phi/skywarn/training.html
NWS Tauton MA: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/box/skywarnTraining.shtml
NWS Upton NY:
http://www.erh.noaa.gov/er/okx/Skywarn/spottertraining-08.htm

Also remember that there is no requirement for a SKYWARNT Spotter to be
an Amateur Radio operator. Storm Spotting can be a whole family
activity. Take your family and friends to a Class and learn not only
about severe weather reporting, but also gain important safety
knowledge for many types of weather events.
If anyone has any questions on Classes or the SKYWARNT Program please
let me know KC2GLG@arrl.net

Editor’s note:  I was invited to attend the SKYWARN Coordinator’s
meeting, as the ARRL Hudson Division Liaison this spring, held in
Ramsey, NJ. This group of Coordinators is made up of some of the most
dedicated Amateurs in the Division. For the SKYWARN Program, they work
closely  with the National Weather Service Meteorologists from Upton
office in Long Island, NY. Weather is something that affects us all.  I
urge you to participate in one of the upcoming training classes.  You
do not have to be a licensed Amateur to participate in the
training…de Joyce – KA2ANF

->>>Help Wanted:  SKYWARN Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators Needed
for NYC

The NWS Upton NY is looking for a SKYWARN Coordinator and Deputy
Coordinators to lead the SKYWARN effort for the 5 NYC Boroughs. As the
Spring and Summer severe weather season is rapidly approaching, it is
important that these important roles be staffed ASAP. If you would like
to be considered for these positions please contact Brian Ciemnecki,
NWS Upton NY SKYWARN Program Leader at: Brian.Ciemnecki@noaa.gov.
If you have questions on the duties of these positions, as they apply

->>>News from the ARRL WEB PAGE – Surfin’: Having a Ham Radio Cow – by
Stan Horzepa, WA1LOU – Contributing Editor
Roland Daignault, N1JOY, documents an unusual Amateur Radio homebrewing
project on the Internet at www.hamcow.net . HAMCOW is an acronym for
“HAM radio Communications On Wheels.” Roland’s mission is to build a
mobile ham radio communications trailer that can be towed to remote
sites for portable radio operations of the contest and public service
variety.
Starting with a surplus office trailer that Roland obtained for a
bargain price, he and his radio compatriots proceeded to gut the
trailer and build a deluxe five-position operating ham radio station on
wheels that also provides some of the comforts of home, including a
kitchen, bathroom and sleeping accommodations.
After a lot of hard work, the project is nearing completion and the
maiden voyage of N1JOY’s new HAMCOW will be a road trip to Martha’s
Vineyard, Massachusetts for the New England QSO Party on May Day. The
operation will camp out atop the Gay Head cliffs in Aquinnah, the site
of the best New England clam chowder this writer has ever tasted! Thank
you, Matt Cassarino, WV1K, for pointing me in the direction of
www.hamcow.net

(Note:  I couldn’t resist this story, as it is near to my occupation.
I work for a Cell Phone Provider Company and we provide this type of
communications on wheels for our cell phone companies….this certainly
makes one think about what this could do in an emergency situation,
doesn’t it? de Joyce KA2ANF).

->>>Club News from around the Division:

BARA Auction was held on March 2, 2008 at 12 noon at the Pascack Valley
High School in Washington Twp, Bergen County, NJ.  BARA always enjoys a
great crowd at their auctions, as well as their hamfests.  And this
Sunday Auction turnout was in excess of 80 people — reports Steve
Mendelsohn, W2ML. A great crowd!  A lively group of people from all
ages — Little Kids age 5 to Big kids, age 90!  Even the YL’s were
strong in their attendance.  Working the Microphone was none other
than, W2HP (ex K2MHP) Pete Adeley.  And working the cash box — a
couple of BARA BABES — Heidi, KC2LEQ and Josephine, WA2EKV.  Along
with Don, KC2OCW, the ladies kept firm control of the finances!
Fairlawn Amateur Radio Club members manned the kitchen.
There were a lot of great items sold from HF rigs, to HT’s and much
more!  What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  Thanks to all who
work so hard to make these events successful!

New Providence ARC’s auction was originally canceled due to inclement
weather, but rescheduled a few weeks later.  They too, boasted a fine
turnout for a Friday Night!  While, I could not attend due to work
commitments, I have always enjoyed this Auction in the past, where they
have had over 100 in attendance. Pretty good for a Friday night!
Thanks to NPARC for their fine work!

Morris Radio Club invited Vice Director, Joyce Birmingham, KA2ANF to
present at one their club meeting on February 25, 2008.  It was nice to
meet their new President Lee Storm, K2FGC — (YL President, that is!)
As you might remember this was the club who at the Sussex Hamfest last
July when members of the Morris Radio Club presented the ARRL with a
check for $31,000.00 for the Morris Radio Club Annual Scholarship. I
had a great time presenting a PowerPoint about the ARRL.  Seems that
this group is now planning a visit to the ARRL Headquarters in
Newington, CT very soon.  (A nice club sponsored event, don’t you
think?)  Thank you all for your hospitality, de Joyce KA2ANF.

Bergen FM Association held their annual meeting on March 9, 2008 at the
American Red Cross in Ridgewood, NJ.  This group maintains one of the
most popular repeaters (146.79 repeater in the Northern New Jersey
Area.  Discussion of future plans for the repeaters was the topic of
the evening.  Also, new officers for the Association were elected.

->>>Hudson Division Obituaries:

From Steve Hass, WB2ZHB:

“I am very sorry to have to inform you that our good friend Lew
Reinberg W2BIE is now a Silent Key.  He passed away this morning at his
home in West Hempstead, New York.  You may recall the story about how
Martti Laine came all the way from Finland to present Lew with The
Ultimate Friendship Award after Lew worked him on Scarborough Reef for
his very last country needed for Number One Honor Roll.  That was two
years after he fell into a diabetic coma and I used the ploy of telling
him that Martti Laine was calling him from Scarborough Reef so he would
wake up.  Thank you for the wonderful article you published about all
that back then.  It was certainly one of the greatest things that ever
happened to Lew.  I recall him sitting at the table next to Martti
saying, “How can I ever top this?”  Lew will be sadly missed by many
here and around the world.  Lew is survived by his XYL Elaine W2ECR,
his son Steven N2HOK, daughter Michele, and two grandsons.”

The funeral was held at Young Israel of West Hempstead with more than
300 mourners in attendance.  Some 100 local hams from LIMARC, LIDXA,
plus others were in attendance.  A few days later I received a call
from a ham friend in Baltimore about Lew’s passing.   The caller wanted
to know if I knew why Lew had been a dues paying member of the
Baltimore club for over 30 years.  The answer was simple. Lew grew up
in Baltimore and his father ran a Jewish bakery there for many years.
Lew was very loyal to his hometown and friends. Lew was very supportive
of ARRL and loved ham radio.  He will be missed.  (Frank, N2FF)

We must also note the passing of Irene Hellman, wife of Bill Hellman,
NA2M, who although not a ham was well known to members of NJDXA and
OBONY.  A great, kind, lovely lady!

KA2ANF writes:  “It seems we’ve lost quite a few of our good
friends in the Division in the past few months. In December 2007, we
lost good friends, Norm Wesler, K2YEW and Van Field, W2OQI. I know
there are probably more than we are aware of.  Let’s remember all of
them and their families in our thoughts, prayers and even in our daily
active lives.”

In Memory of our friend:  Doris Jankowitz – NW2B — Spouse of NO2T
Doris — NW2B passed away on January 15, 2008.  Doris was active in
many area clubs, ECDXA, and Bergen Amateur Radio Association, just to
name a few. Doris contributed much to the growth and advancement of
Amateur Radio through her years of Public Service Work, Mentoring,
Contesting, VE-ing and Overall Enthusiasm. Right along side her Husband
Jerry — NO2T, you could always find Doris with her cheerful smiling
face.
Please send Condolences to the family at: 9 Buff Lane Hillsdale, NJ
07642.
“Doris will always carry a special spot in my heart.  She along
Jerry- NO2T, were my inspiration and cheerleaders at each VE Testing
Session that I attended.  Doris was a real love, always having
something nice to say about everyone.  She and I shared a special
fondness for our Collies and Shelties. — de Joyce KA2ANF. ”

->>>Division Newsletter of the Month
The March 2008 Award for newsletter of the goes to:
“PACARA Update” the newsletter of the Peekskill/Cortland
Amateur Radio Association for their February issue.  The editor is
Malcolm Pritchard, NM9KJ for his consistently good newsletter.
Congratulations once again!

As we missed sending out a “Beacon” in January due to a
family vacation in Jamaica we never had an opportunity to name a
winning newsletter for that month.  For January 2008 the honors go to
the “Peconic Amateur Radio Club Newsletter.”  Congratulations
to Paul Birman, WA2JPL for his fine newsletter.

Please note:  Both winning entries have a very nice mix of news,
articles and pictures and a nice lay out for club readers.

Clubs please make sure that you continue to send a copy of your pdf
file to n2ff@arrl.org.  I have been missing some issues in the last few
months.  Not every division club is submitting each month.  It’s like
Lotto, if you don’t buy a ticket or send a PDF you can’t win!
