It's Official! No-code licenses in effect February 23 per Federal Register.

Pat Knight AD5BR <ad5br@...>
 

The SARC VE team will have a VE session at 9 AM Saturday morning,
February 24, at a special location to accommodate the possible crowd
of upgrading ham radio operators. Paul Guido N5IUT has arranged test
facilities for us at the second floor of Broadway National Bank, on
the northwest corner of Nacogdoches and Loop 410. More details will be
coming on our club web site at http://w5sc.org . PLEASE PRE-REGISTER
at hamtest@... if you plan to test or do the paperwork upgrade.

The Federal Register today contains the FCC's new rules eliminating
Element 1 code requirements for General and Amateur Extra licenses. It
states that the new rules go into effect February 23.

There will be NO AUTOMATIC UPGRADES. If you have a CSCE that is less
than 365 days old, and it shows Element 3 General, you can present it
to a VE session, along with your ham license, photocopies of both,
your photo ID (drivers license preferred), and the session fee ($14
for most sessions in our area) and apply for your upgrade to General.
This is a "paperwork upgrade."

If you have waited to take the General written exam until the code
requirement went away, you can do so as of February 23.

Technician licensees will gain Novice privileges on February 23. They
will still be Technicians.

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

47 CFR Part 97

[WT Docket No. 04-140, WT Docket No. 05-235; FCC 06-178]


Amateur Service Rules

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In this document, the Commission amends its Amateur Radio
Service rules to remove the requirement that an individual must pass a
Morse code telegraphy examination to qualify for a General Class or an
Amateur Extra Class amateur radio service operator license. The
Commission also revises the frequency segment of the 80 meter amateur
service High Frequency (HF) band on which amateur stations are
authorized to be automatically controlled when transmitting RTTY and
data emission types, and it make other conforming amendments to the
amateur service rules.

DATES: Effective February 23, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William T. Cross, Wireless
Telecommunications Bureau at (202) 418-0620, or TTY (202) 418-7233.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This is a summary of the Commission's Report
and Order and Order on Reconsideration, in WT Docket Nos. 04-140 and
05-235; FCC 06-178, adopted December 15, 2006 and released December 19,
2006. The complete text of this document is available for inspection
and copying during normal business hours in the FCC's Reference
Information Center, 445 12th Street, SW., Room CY-A257, Washington, DC.
Alternative formats (Braille, large print, electronic files, audio
format) are available for people with disabilities by sending an e-mail
to FCC504@... or, calling the Consumer and Government Affairs
Bureau at (202) 418-0530 (voice), (202) 418-0432 (TTY). The Order also
may be downloaded from the Commission's Web site at http://www.fcc.gov/
.

1. In this Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration the
Commission adopts changes to its part 97 rules to revise the
examination requirements for obtaining a General Class or Amateur Extra
Class amateur radio operator license, revises the operating privileges
for Technician Class licensees to include the operating privileges that
are authorized to Novice Class licensees, and authorizes automatically
controlled digital stations to operate in the 3585-3600 kHz frequency
segment. The overall effect of this action is to further the public
interest by encouraging individuals who are interested in
communications technology, or who are able to contribute to the
advancement of the radio art, to become amateur radio operators; and
eliminating a requirement that is now unnecessary and may discourage
amateur service licensees from advancing their skills in the
communications and technical phases of amateur radio. The changes
adopted in this Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration were
proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking at 70 FR 51705, August
31, 2005. Over 3800 comments on the proposed rule changes were received
and changes to the proposed rules based on these comments are included
in this Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration.
2. Specifically, the Commission (1) removes the five wpm telegraphy
examination from the examination requirements for the General Class and
Amateur Extra Class operator licenses; (2) revises the operating
privileges for Technician Class licensees to include the High Frequency
operating privileges that are authorized to Novice Class and Technician
Plus Class licensees; and (3) authorizes automatically controlled
digital stations to transmit in the 3585-3600 kHz segment of the 80 m
band. The effect of these revisions are to eliminate unnecessary
requirements from the amateur service license examination system and to
provide licensees with greater flexibility in the utilization of
amateur service frequencies.

I. Procedural Matters

A. Paperwork Reduction Act Analysis

3. This document does not contain any new or modified information
collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
(PRA), Public Law 104-13. Therefore, it does not contain any new or
modified ``information collection burden for small business concerns
with fewer than 25 employees,'' pursuant to the Small Business
Paperwork Relief Act of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C.
3506(c)(4).

B. Report to Congress

4. The Commission will send a copy of the Report and Order and
Order on Reconsideration, including this Final Regulatory Flexibility
Certification, in a report to be sent to Congress and the Congressional
Budget Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act. In addition,
the Commission will send a copy of the Report and Order and Order on
Reconsideration, including the Final Regulatory Flexibility
Certification, to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the SBA and the
Final Regulatory Flexibility Certification will also be published in
the Federal Register.

C. Final Regulatory Flexibility Certification

5. In this Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration, we amend
the rules that specify how an individual who has qualified for an
amateur service operator license can use an amateur radio station
consistent with the basis and furthering the purpose of the amateur
service. The amended rules apply exclusively to individuals who are
licensees in the amateur radio service. Given the definition of a
``small entity,'' none of these individuals are small entities as the
term is used in the RFA. Therefore, we certify that the rules reflected
in this Report and Order and Order on Reconsideration will not have a
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

[[Page 3082]]

D. Ordering Clauses

6. Pursuant to sections 4(i), 303(f), 303(r), and 332 of the
Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154 (i), 303(f),
303(r) and 332, the rules are amended as specified below.

ARRL Map Display by Zip Code

KK5LO is Walter Hock and he is a friend of mine who lives out in the
country near Hondo so he won't bother anyone. He lives a fairly
Neanderthal existence and does not keep up much with what is going on
in the modern world. That's why I was surprised when he sent me a
link to an ARRL page where you can type in a zip code and get a map
display of every licensed amateur radio operator who lives in that zip
code. I didn't even know the Internet reached out to the hill he
lives on

Anyway, this is a very informative link and I thought it might come in

Yup, for a while now, I've had a similar lookup at www.SanAntonioHams.org
web site on the bottom of the left column on the front page. I had found
it on N4MC's web site. It is across from the articles about the General
Class being formed at that church near Quarry Market.

I've got today's local gas prices, Ham Locater by Zip, Create your own
Callsign Certificate, Re-print your own ticket (from FCC database, can't
fill in the blanks), and an easy way to locate any APRS station.

On the right side, I've got today's local current weather conditions, and
QRZ's call sign lookup.

Of course, there is much, much more to explore if you have the time. :)

A, K, and Flux Indices Now on w5sc.org Homepage

davidftx <davidftx@...>
 

Standard HF propagation indicators are the Planetary A Index of
Geomagnetic Activity, the Planetary K Index of Geomagnetic Activity, and
the Solar Flux Index. The data for these indices is updated
periodically and is posted in the U.S. on WWV and the Internet.
Understanding the measurements of activity requires an in depth study of
physics, mathematics, and theories of space weather. But HF radio
amateurs have learned to look to these three numbers as an indicator of
how good, or how bad, the HF bands are for propagation at any given
hour.



Paul Guido has placed a Hamquick Propcast on the home page of w5sc.org
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/W5SC/w5sc.org> . It is located on the
left side of the page under the menu and it updates itself as the
numbers are updated.



In a very simplistic nutshell here is what the numbers mean to HF
propagation:



A Index-effects of solar radiation. Under 10 is good. Over 30 is bad.
Wish for single digits



K Index-A different, more immediate measurement at Boulder, CO. 0 is
great. Lower = better. Again, wish for single digits.



Flux Index-Solar Flux measured in British Columbia. 65 to 300 and
higher is better. 65 is horrible. Over 200 is very good. During this
time of the solar cycle we won't see any 200's with a relative
decent day being around 100 or little less.



NOAA and others use these observations to predict space weather and its
effect on propagation. Those forecasts are included in the Propcast on
w5sc.org <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/W5SC/w5sc.org> .



NOAA has some very fine articles on Solar Weather and particularly
Flares at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/solar.html
<http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/solar.html>

A good resource for Solar Weather information complete with great links
is http://www.k-state.edu/ksuarc/solar.html
<http://www.k-state.edu/ksuarc/solar.html> .

A little more details on short term Space Weather (and indices)
forecasts is here http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/solar.html
<http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/stp/SOLAR/solar.html>



Thanks Paul, this is a great resource.


Re: A, K, and Flux Indices Now on w5sc.org Homepage

davidftx <davidftx@...>
 

Do to forces out of my control, probably voodoo or bad karma, the
links that I placed in this notice were for the W5SC Webpage. But
they came out as links to this Yahoo Group. The Hamquick Propcast is
located on the home page of w5sc.org, not in this Yahoo Group.

Or maybe it was pilot error. I don't know, stuff happens.

Frequency: 146.520

Monitored conversation between two truck drivers regarding their
trucks, trailers and the manner in which the were being loaded.
No callsigns. Clearly not hams. I was passing through the area and
did not have to time drive around and try to find where they were working.

You stated that the meeting was Feb. 11th.
This must be incorrect.

<mailto:larry. eblen@... > for the National Weather Service at the
Austin/San Antonio Office. Mr. Eblen is a big supporter of amateur
radio and its involvement with the National Weather Service. He
will
give an overview of the Skywarn Program for 2007.



Skywarn is a partnership between the National Weather Service (NWS)
and
the community, designed to help reduce the threat from severe
weather.

The key element of this partnership is a network of volunteer non-
NWS
personnel ("storm spotters") who relay reports of severe weather to
the
NWS. Even with today's new technology at our disposal, only one
instrument can detect severe weather phenomena directly with
absolute
certainty, the human eye. A large network of spotters can be a
great
benefit to the NWS warning program.

Please join us on the 11th for this most interesting presentation.
