To make everyone aware, the link between the Paisley and Owen Sound repeaters is currently not functioning.  It transmits from Paisley to Owen Sound, but it does not transmit from Owen Sound to Paisley.  We will be working on it over the coming weeks and it may affect the future nets.

  RAC Ontario Sections Bulletin for October 1, 2022
Posted by: VE3OZW Richard - 2022-10-01, 17:47:56 - Forum: ISED, RAC Bulletins - No Replies

This is V_3___, Official Bulletin Station for Radio Amateurs of Canada
with this week's bulletin.

NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL NEWS

1.  Radio ham elected ITU Secretary General

Radio amateur Doreen Bogdan-Martin KD2JTX has become the first woman to
be elected
as secretary-general of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU)
Ms Bogdan-Martin KD2JTX will succeed Houlin Zhao, who has been in the
role since 2014,
when her term begins on 1 January 2023.
BBC News story  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-63074895
--  Southgate News

2.  FCC grants an emergency request to permit higher data rate
transmissions for  hurricane relief communications

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has granted an ARRL
emergency request for a
60-day temporary waiver intended to facilitate amateur radio emergency
communications for hurricane relief. The waiver was adopted on Tuesday,
September 27, 2022, and immediately permitted amateur radio operators
supporting amateur data transmission for Hurricane Ian traffic to employ
a higher symbol rate for data transmissions than the current limit of
300 baud.
In 2016, in response to an ARRL petition for rulemaking, the FCC
proposed to remove the symbol rate limitations, which it tentatively
concluded had become unnecessary due to advances in modulation
techniques and no longer served a useful purpose. That proceeding, WT
Docket 16-239, is still pending.
-- ARRL News

3.  Amateur Radio Operators Continue Response to Ian

The hurricane made landfall at 3:00 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday,
September 28, 2022, just south of Tampa, Florida, as a Category 4
hurricane with winds of 150 miles per hour. Millions of residents are
without power, and damage was reported as extensive along the storm’s
initial path.
ARRL has previously deployed Ham Aid kits in the region. The kits
include amateur radio equipment for disaster response when
communications equipment is unavailable.
W1AW, the Maxim Memorial Station at ARRL’s headquarters in Connecticut,
has activated its Winlink station to handle PACTOR III and IV messages
and traffic, and well as its SHARES station, NCS310.

Bobby Graves, KB5HAV, Net Manager for the Hurricane Watch Net (HWN),
said the net is now
transitioning from receiving weather data to gathering post-storm reports.
Graves added that the HWN will be assisting with emergency, priority,
and any Health and Welfare Traffic. The net may continue operations for
days. The HWN will issue an after-action report to detail the number of
amateur radio operators who participated on the net.

5.  EURAO Party - Autumn 2022: CQ mobile

The European Radio Amateurs' Organization announces a new party on the
air, this time with
the motto: "CQ mobile". Remember this is not a contest, it is just a
radio meeting with a few simple 'rules',
better to call them recommendations.
Amateur radio stations on board vehicles can be very useful in an
emergency. That is why it is so
important to always have them ready, having fun with playful activities
in moments of calm. The
objective of this Party is to hunt as many /M stations as possible,
keeping in mind that they will
rarely be able to log your data. So write them down.
Time: October 1st to 31st, 2022, 00:00-24:00 UTC.
Logs: for statistic purposes only, we ask participants to submit their
logs to party@eurao.org in
ADIF format, where the filename should be your callsign (e.g. EA3RKF.ADI).
There will be no results or league tables, only statistical information
about number of QSOs, countries, callsigns, OMs/YLs/Clubs, etc.
Certificate of Participation: for all those sending the log and without
a minimum of confirmed QSOs.
EuroBureauQSL: you can use it to interchange QSLs even if you are not
member. In this case, just send the QSL to the entry point of the
country of the station you have contacted.

This concludes this week's bulletin. Does anyone require repeats or
clarifications?

  RAC Ontario Sections Bulletin for September 24, 2022
Posted by: VE3OZW Richard - 2022-09-24, 17:18:27 - Forum: ISED, RAC Bulletins - No Replies

This is V_3___, Official Bulletin Station for Radio Amateurs of Canada
with this week's bulletin.

NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL NEWS

1.  Hurricane Fiona is expected to impact Atlantic Canada starting
September 23

This storm is shaping up to be a potentially severe event for Atlantic
Canada. Numerous weather
models are quite consistent in their prediction of what we call a deep
hybrid low pressure system,
possessing both tropical and intense winter storm-type properties.
Currently the range of uncertainty with regard to the centre of the low
when it approaches late Friday
or Saturday is approximately a 600 to 700 kilometre wide zone centred
over Cape Breton with a
broad coverage of hurricane-force winds including over land.
Since we expect the storm to become very large, the impacts will be
multi-provincial. Again, this storm
certainly has the potential to be quite severe – we suggest to check
forecast updates at least daily for
important information regarding the trend in our analysis of what to
expect. Please continue to monitor
alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts issued by
Environment Canada.”
Operators are encouraged to monitor local repeaters and the
International Amateur Radio Union (IARU)
Centre of Activity frequencies.
If you are in the affected area, please provide updates to the Hurricane
Watch Net. Please also continue to
monitor alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts
issued by Environment Canada.

2. Canadian Amateurs Call Sign Policy Survey ends September 30.

RAC is a volunteer-based organization and we rely on the feedback from
members and non-members
to help us stay informed and up to date on Amateur Radio matters of
interest to them.
The current callsign policy (RIC-9) has been in place for almost 20
years and we would like your input
to develop proposals for change to present to our regulator – ISED
Canada – for their consideration.
The survey is anonymous and is open to anyone holding a Canadian
Certificate and call sign.
The link is available on the RAC website.
