ARLP048 Propagation de K7RA

No new sunspots appeared over the past reporting week, November 24
to 30.  But sunspots were visible every day.  Then on December 1
three new sunspot groups emerged.  The sunspot number rose from 12
to 49 and the total sunspot area went from 10 to 330.

Sunspot numbers and solar flux declined during this reporting week
(November 24 to 30), with average daily Sunspot number dropping from
66 to 46, and average daily solar flux from 116.5 to 108.3.

Solar wind streams from coronal holes kept geomagnetic indicators
active, with average daily planetary A index jumping from 5.1 to
18.6, and middle latitude A index from 3.4 to 14.

On Wednesday, November 30 the magnetometer at Fairbanks, Alaska
showed the college A index at 54, the highest value over the past
month.  No doubt this produced aurora.  The next day the disturbance
continued, with collage A index at 51.  These are very large
numbers.

The current prediction from Thursday night has solar flux reaching a
peak of 130 this weekend, rather than 135 recently predicted.  This
is much earlier than the prediction in yesterday’s ARRL Letter.  We
might also see solar flux below 100 around December 24.

Look for flux values of 120 and 124 on December 2 and 3, 130 on
December 4 and 5, 125 on December 6 and 7, then 120, 125, 125, 130,
115 and 110 on December 8 to 13, 105 on December 14 to 17, 100 on
December 18 to 23, then 95, 105 and 110 on December 24 to 26, 115 on
December 27 to 30, and 120 on December 31, then 125 on January 1 to
6, 2023.

The planetary A index prediction is 20, 10, 18 and 12 on December 2
to 5, 5 on December 6 and 7, 10 and 8 on December 8 and 9, 5 on
December 10 to 16, 10 on December 17 and 18, 5 on December 19 to 21,
then 20, 15, 12, and 10 on December 22 to 25, then 15, 18, 10, 18
and 10 on December 26 to 30, 5 on December 31 through January 3,
2023, 8 on January 4 and 5, and 5 on January 6 to 12.

OK1HH wrote:

“The course of solar and geomagnetic activity and therefore the
course of shortwave propagation in the last seven days differed
significantly from the week before.

The solar wind speed has increased significantly (from 300 km/s to a
fluctuation between 700 and 800 km/s) and the activity of Earth’s
magnetic field mostly increased.

The changes began on 25 November at 0230 UTC when a shock wave in
the solar wind hit the Earth.  In the ionosphere we could first
observe an increase in MUF.  Further development of the disturbance
continued only by further irregular deterioration of shortwave
propagation.

Enhanced solar flaring activity, including Coronal Mass Ejections
(CMEs), did give rise to predictions of higher geomagnetic activity,
but without the possibility of more precise timing.

On December 1, a new larger sunspot group appeared over the
southeastern limb of the Sun.  So solar activity will not drop, but
will probably rise again over the next few days.

Shortwave propagation should therefore no longer deteriorate, rather
the shortest shortwave bands will gradually open up a little better.
In the northern hemisphere of the Earth, however, the opening
intervals will be shorter than in recent weeks.”

Aloha,

Here’s news about a military/amateur crossband event to allow Amateurs
(transmitting in our allocations) to QSO with the Battleship Iowa
(operating on military frequencies). At the request of the Battleship
IOWA Amateur Radio Association (BIARA) the ARRL petitioned the FCC to
grant permission for this crossband event. The FCC approved the request
December 1st, 2022.

The battleship Missouri club will be operating the event from the
Missouri. Hawaii Amateurs are encouraged to also participate and give
recognition to our military for their service to our county.

Thanks to Chuck Malefyt (KH6DL) for passing this information on.

CROSSBAND ACTIVATION OF BATTLESHIP IOWA’S NEPM SCHEDULED IN MEMORY OF
PEARL HARBOR

As the representative of the National Museum of the Surface Navy at
Battleship IOWA in San Pedro, California, the Battleship IOWA Amateur
Radio Association (BIARA) will honor the sailors and ships previously
home ported in San Pedro who were attacked on December 7, 1941, with
special crossband activations of NEPM on December 6th and 7th, 2022.

When Pearl Harbor was attacked on 7 December 1941, seven of the
battleships formerly homeported in San Pedro Bay weren’t present.
Eight Pacific fleet battleships (Arizona, California, Maryland, Nevada,
Oklahoma, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania) were at Pearl
Harbor and absorbed the brunt of the Japanese attack. Of these eight,
three sank, one capsized, and four suffered varying degrees of damage.

With authority from the Navy and Marine Corps Spectrum Office Southwest,
we will transmit using the IOWA’s NEPM call sign on assigned military
frequencies and listen for calls from the amateur radio community in
their adjacent bands. NEPM will transmit on 14.375 MHz, 18.170 MHz, and
or 21.460 MHz on J3E/USB and or A1A/CW. The operator will advise
listeners as to where they are listening. Amateur participants are
reminded not to transmit on the NEPM military frequencies. Operations on
both days are expected to be from 1500 to 2400 UTC. QSL procedures can
be found at https://biara.org. For specific questions in advance of the
operation, contact http://w6hb@biara.org.

5:02 PM (23 minutes ago)

to Kevin, bcc: me
An Emergency Proclamation from Governor Ige is in effect for the eruption and lava from Maunaloa. We are authorized to turn the MK repeater on if it is needed or is in imminent need. We need to give the Center for Maunakea Stewardship as much lead time as possible and, at least, 24 hours before turning it on if at all possible. 
The attached, current SOG is in effect as a guide. There is no change from the draft version that went out with the reminder for the November test.
 
Please see the note at the bottom regarding the Standard Operating Guide (SOG) produced by the HVOAD Radio Sub-Working Group. 
To: CMS,  Big Island, BigIslandARES, KHRC, DECs, BIARC, BigIslandRADIO, 40meter.net, bigislandarrlnews, others
The Hawaii VOAD repeater will be turned back on at noon for the one hour test, Saturday, December 3, 2022, then turned off again. It needs to be tested on a monthly basis (1st Saturday) to ensure that it is operational. 
 

Please check in on the Hawaii State VOAD repeater, WH6FIU, 146.72 MHz (PL 100.0 Hz) Maunakea, Saturday December 3, 2022  1200-1300 HST.

 
  1. When checking in please give your callsign spelled phonetically
  2. After the check ins are taken, we will take, by roll call:
    1. your callsign, 
    2. tactical callsign (if none, just use the suffix of your callsign)
    3. name, 
    4. location, 
    5. power, 
    6. antenna model number and 
    7. antenna elevation above MSL. 
  3. If time permits, we will practice message handling. 
  4. Please make note of the transmission quality of the stations to handle traffic and let me know at the end those stations that would not have a good enough signal to adequately pass traffic.
 
This is an emcomm repeater, so please use best practices as given by the NCS when operating on the repeater.  
  1. Follow the directions of the NCS.
  2. This is a directed net. All transmissions must be directed to the Net Control Station (NCS) unless given specific permission to go direct with another station.  
  3. No small talk. No sidetalk (unless following Directive #2 above.)
  4. Stick to the EEI (Essential Elements of Information).
  5. Reports should be structured with the most important part first and not necessarily in chronological order. (“If it were a joke, the punchline comes first.” For example:”Send ambulance.” “Need 20kw genset by 1200 HST Sunday.”)
  6. End your transmission with your call sign (as much as possible.) This is not an FCC requirement, but a net request. Reason: You never know when the NCS is going to jump to another station and leave you hanging with a 10-minute FCC timer counting down.
  7. If you are asked to report in a particular format, please comply to help speed up the process. If you arrive after the net starts, listen to the net and adhere to the net reporting format heard.
 
This repeater serves the member agencies and their emcomm operators (e.g., Big Island COAD, American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention, Team Rubicon, ARESHawaiian Humane Society and more)  and their partners (e.g., HI-EMA, HCCDA, MEMA, etc.)
 
Please give this notice the widest dissemination.

Help ARRL Support Young Hams!
Dear Russell, KH6JRM

 

Today is #GivingTuesday! Every donation, no matter the size, will help ARRL get closer to our $25,000 goal to help support and expand our programs and initiatives for young hams.

GIVE NOW

ARRL is already doing so much to grow and encourage our community of young radio amateurs. Just imagine how much more we can do with your help!

#GivingTuesday donations will help fund ARRL programs and services not covered by membership fees alone. Gifts will help subsidize ARRL Student Membership and ARRL Youth Licensing Grants, as well as resources and programs that attract and keep young hams active, involved, and engaged in amateur radio.

 

Your gift will support and expand programs and initiatives for young hams:

 

ARRL Student Membership Discount

ARRL Youth Licensing Grants

Outreach to Teachers and Schools

ARRL Collegiate Amateur Radio Program

Kids Day and School Club Roundup

…and more!

Thank you for your generosity!
