During the last year I have had the pleasure of becoming somewhat Internet-literate and watched its well-known and phenomenal growth, which has been reported to be 40% per month. I would like to take a moment to reflect on the surprising similarities between Ham Radio and Internet activities in our culture and what this may mean for the future of ham radio.
Early on, hams built their own relatively simple equipment. There was none available commercially. They enthusiastically demonstrated what they built by talking to fellow hams across town and around the world. Hams enjoyed both the technical aspect (designing, building) and the social part (talking, exchanging QSL cards, emergency communications, traffic and competing as a sport).
The majority of hams today no longer build their equipment because of the difficulty in building miniature, high-performance, gear cheaply in quantities of just one. The principal building opportunities today are for hams who view themselves as service providers (repeaters, links, packet, TV, satellite and microwave stations), but percentage-wise there are really very few hams who have the time, money and technical interest to do this. Instead, the social aspects of the hobby now dominate, as evidenced by our own admission that we have become "appliance operators." From beginner to old-timer, hams continue to get enjoyment from interacting with the people they encounter on the air.
Many of these social attributes are also part of the Internet culture, and one doesn't need a ham radio license for the Internet! I suddenly realized that the Internet gives people much of what we look for in ham radio, and in fact it is an attractive alternative for those seeking the social aspects of the hobby without the technical background needed for a ham radio license.
Here are some examples of the similarities between ham radio and the Internet: We sit at our rigs (the Internet equivalent is one's personal computer) and communicate using our uniquely assigned call sign (Internet address). We exchange third party messages (file transfer) or rag chew in a net with a group having similar interests (chat room). We copy W1AW bulletins or listen to Newslink (newsgroups). We exchange pictures using slow or fast scan TV (digital images compressed with JPEG, for example) and sometimes, play RTTY "brag tapes" (home page). We have a callbook (Internet white pages). We tune around the band looking for an interesting contact (surf the net with a browser).
You may say that hams still mainly use voice/CW modes, while Internet users communicate mainly by typing. Even that distinction is disappearing. In fact, at last month's COMDEX trade show in Las Vegas, the hottest new feature on exhibit was software that digitizes an analog voice signal, compresses it and sends it via Internet packets to its destination. There, the voice is reconstructed as an analog signal. And this can be done in real-time! In fact, an Internet voice call was demonstrated between Las Vegas and Israel. Now that's real DX in anybody's book! Adding to the similarity is the fact that neither the Internet user nor the ham radio user pays telephone tolls.
Granted that the Internet offers many additional services that come with the monthly access charges, the main remaining difference I could see between ham radio and the Internet is that the physical medium is different (radio at the end points versus landline) and, if you use radio at the end points, you need a license. Radio, of course, permits great freedom in where your station can be located, which enables hams to be leading providers of emergency communications.
Just as I was getting comfortable with this distinction, and feeling that ham radio's primary role continues to be to provide emergency radio communications, I discovered that Rutgers University recently formed a Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINlab) where they are developing communication techniques and standards for "mobile computing." This includes radio link communications techniques sufficiently robust to connect a laptop or other mobile computer to the Internet over distorted, noisy, fading and interference-plagued links such as a moving car or roaming within a building.
Now the concept of mobile computing really takes on a new meaning, and the advantage hams had using radio links will no longer be unique! Digital radio links (for example, cellular phones) will one day be able to provide robust digital service even to remote hikers with a laptop or with voice-digitizing software.
Where, then, is ham radio going? The features that have distinguished ham radio and which have remained constant over the decades continue to be the social aspects of camaraderie, worldwide friendship, and willingness to help when needed. But in emergencies, our knowledge of the underlying communication techniques needed to get the message through, sometimes in very creative ways, are a recognized national resource. Since amateur radio and the Internet are becoming indistinguishable and interchangeable with the growth of transparent gateways, it is clear that we must understand and become proficient in both radio and Internet communications if we expect to maintain our distinction as a national resource for emergency communications. One club member remarked to me that he is "on the air daily," but doesn't even use a radio - he communicates from his computer through our W6VIO Internet/packet radio gateway to his ham radio friends who really ARE on the air! nNovember Club Meetings

The regular JPL Amateur Radio Club membership meeting was held Wednesday, November 8. President Merv MacMedan called the meeting to order. Thirty members were present. Allen Hubbard, N6VTX, was a visitor from Cal Tech.
Merv made several announcements: The December Galileo Special Event has been canceled. The Club will not participate in the Outer Planets Day activity on November 9. The Packet Gateway is back in operation. Please send in your reservations quickly for the December 13 Banquet Meeting at Marie Calendars in Pasadena which will feature a speaker just returned from a DXpedition to Outer Mongolia.
Carol Bruegge reported that the nominating committee did not yet have a slate of officers. The slate will be mailed to the members when completed and other nominations may be submitted by mail. The voting will be by mail, if necessary.
Jay Holladay introduced the speaker, Jim Newcomb, N7MBA, who was the ICOM National Amateur Radio Sales Manager for seven years and is now the Regional Sales Manager for all ICOM products in Arizona, California, and Nevada. Jim showed the new IC-706 which covers all amateur bands from 160 to 2 meters. He also showed the new IC-2350 dual band (2 meters and 440 MHz) mobile FM radio. Jim pointed out that ICOM has guaranteed specifications while most other amateur manufacturers specifications are "typical." The ICOM Internet address is http://www.icomamerica.com/icom.
The regular Board of Directors meeting was held in Room 301-227 on Wednesday, November 22. The meeting was called to order by President Merv MacMedan, N6NO. A quorum was present. Merv made several announcements. Everyone needs to make their December 13 Banquet reservations as soon as possible. Merv has not received any information on the decommissioning of the 34-meter antenna at Echo Site at Goldstone and the transfer to the Apple Valley Science Center. Merv has discussed the availability of a 160 MHz NASA frequency for Shuttle transmissions with the JPL frequency coordinator.
Jim Marr gave the treasurer's report. Two unbudgeted expense items were discussed and approved by the Board. The Board approved Club dues for next year to continue at $10, but would become $11 after January 31. The Club now has 233 total members. n

Winter conditions are upon us and the low bands are coming into their own again. Everything from 80 through 15 meters is showing signs of life DX-wise. Propagation predictions show high-normal starting on 4 December peaking to above-normal on 10 December. Thanks, as usual, to The DX Bulletin for its source material for this article.
HEARD ISLAND - This operation, previously reported fell victim to an unscrupulous boat owner who effectively took the group's money and didn't provide an acceptable ship to make the journey. The trip had to be postponed for now.
MACQARIE - VK0WH will begin operations soon from this very rare location. No times or frequencies yet, but keep an ear out.
MONGOLIA - JT1T was loud on the West Coast from 1300Z for almost two hours during the CQ CW Contest last weekend. Guess who didn't work him!
SAO TOME - S92AD plans operation form 4 through 14 December. S92SS is also on the air again after his recent illness. He was worked a week ago on 17 meters from W6VIO.
SAUDI ARABIA - 7Z5OO comes through on the long path on the low end of 40 meter cw from 1500Z. The path is open during this season to most of the middle-East daily. Reports also show that the long path to the same region is also open on 20 meters at the same time.
SVALBARD - JW5NM operates on 3792 kHz from 0400 to 0600Z. He's looking for the states he needs to complete his WAS on 75 meters, but I bet he'd work a California station if you had a good antenna.
THAILAND - Look for HS0ZAR on 40 meter CW from 1500Z. n
W6VIO Work Parties
By Bob Polansky, N6ET
On 4 and 18 November, JPL ARC work parties were held to prepare the Club's new 67-foot tower for its beam. The remaining guy wires were installed, the guy wire tensions were adjusted to straighten the tower, the rotor was connected to its mounting hardware, and the rotor/cable was successfully tested from the control box in the shack. Chris Carson, Warren Dowler, Jay Holladay, Walt Mushagian, Jerry Person, Bob Polansky, Rob Smith, and even Randy Hammock participated. (Hope I didn't forget anyone!)
The next work party at the Mesa water tank site took place on December 2. The extra-heavy-duty rotor assembly turned out to be heavier than expected and had to be lifted higher than expected to get it on top of the tower. It was decided to delay mounting it until we are ready to mount the beam, at which time we will have the services of a cherry-picker. The group then returned to the W6VIO trailer, directing its efforts to solving the puzzle of assembling the TH7DXX beam. It succeeded in getting the beam about half assembled. Parallel assembly operations were enhanced by having enough people to spread the work, and the process went remarkably well. Final assembly, rechecking dimensions, lubricating slip joints, installing a heavy-duty balun, and mounting the beam, rotor assembly and cable guides on the tower will be the goal for the next work party in January. Many thanks to KE6ABQ, W6EJJ, N6ET, KE6LEA, N6NO and AA7R who donated their time and tools for this effort! n

STS-74: All Amateur Licensed
The ARRL Letter Vol. 14, No. 22
Space shuttle mission STS-74 lifted off on Sunday, November 12, with all five crew members licensed as Amateur Radio operators. The launch was delayed one day because of bad weather at emergency landing sites and landed safely on November 20.
NASA astronaut James Halsell, KC5RNI, and Canadian Space Agency astronaut Chris Hadfield, KC5RNJ, both received their licenses in early November, and both looked forward to participating in Shuttle Amateur Radio EXperiment (SAREX) activities during the STS-74 mission.
Halsell was the shuttle's pilot, and Hadfield is a mission specialist. Shuttle Atlantis's commander for STS-74 was Ken Cameron, KB5AWP, who used Amateur Radio from Atlantis during STS-37 in April 1991 and from Discovery during STS-56 in April 1993. This was the third mission Cameron had flown where the entire crew are licensed radio amateurs.
Other STS-74 crew members were Mission Specialist Jerry Ross, N5SCW, who was also a member of STS-37, and who operated ham radio aboard the STS-55 Columbia mission in April/May 1993; and Mission Specialist Bill McArthur, KC5ACR, who used ham radio aboard Columbia during STS-58 in October/November 1993.
When Atlantis hooked up with Mir, Cameron got a lot of television audio time due to the complex docking which was done so flawlessly. Only three days into the mission the astronauts were heard on 2 meters by amateurs in Australia and elsewhere.
Early in the mission, the Atlantis astronauts completed five scheduled Amateur Radio contacts with US students as part of the Shuttle Amateur Radio EXperiment (SAREX). These groups included students from Franklin Junior High School in Pocatello, Idaho; Norwalk area schools in Connecticut; Lake Street Elementary School in Crown Point, Indiana; Round Lake-area schools in Illinois; and Quimby Oak Junior High School in San Jose, California. The students were assisted by local Amateur Radio clubs and AMSAT and SAREX volunteers.
QSL cards and SWL reports may be sent to ARRL EAD, STS-74 QSL, 225 Main Street, Newington, CT 06111-1494, USA. Include a large, business-sized envelope self-addressed stamped envelope if you wish to receive a card. The Greater Norwalk Amateur Radio Club of Norwalk, Connecticut, is managing the cards for this mission.

Conference Defers Action On Morse Code
The ARRL Letter Vol. 14, No. 22
The 1995 World Radiocommunication Conference, WRC-95, opened in Geneva on October 23, and finished on schedule November 17. As described in November 1995 QST, page 106, this ITU conference dealt with a number of proposals to simplify the Radio Regulations and to expand mobile-satellite services.
One of the matters raised at the conference was a New Zealand proposal to delete from the radio regulations of the International Telecommunication Union (Radio Regulation 2735), the requirement that amateurs demonstrate Morse code ability in order to be licensed to operate below 30 MHz. The Conference did not accept this proposal, instead agreeing to include consideration of the amateur regulations on the provisional agenda for the 1999 WRC.
The broad language of the agenda item should also allow for consideration of any changes that might be necessary to achieve global recognition of an International Amateur Radio Permit.
Another preliminary agenda item for WRC-99 deals with the possibility of increasing the available spectrum for broadcasting, particularly between approximately 4 and 10 MHz. This raises concerns not only with regard to the 40 meter amateur band, but also for the top end of the 75 meter band, which is already allocated to broadcasting in ITU Regions 1 and 3.
Amateur Radio was represented at the conference by International Amateur Radio Union President Richard Baldwin, W1RU, secretary Larry Price, W4RA, and Region 1 vice chairman Wojciech Nietyksza, SP5FM. ARRL Technical Relations Manager Paul Rinaldo, W4RI, was a member of the United States delegation, and other national delegations also had Amateur Radio representatives at the conference. n
Repeater Coordinators Hear FCC Position
The ARRL Letter Vol. 14, No. 20
An ARRL-hosted meeting of frequency coordinators, held in St. Charles, Missouri, on October 7, 1995, was attended by about 80 people, representing the vast majority of active coordinating organizations in the US. Ralph Haller, deputy chief of the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau of the Federal Communications Commission, provided "food for thought" and helped the group focus on what they need, rather than on what the FCC might be willing to provide.
Haller said: "I've never been particularly comfortable with the notion that there was no official recognition of a coordinator in a given area. Under our rules, almost anyone can claim to be a coordinator. That's happened very few times, fortunately, but it has happened. So, just as a precaution as we move into the future, I'd like to provide a mechanism that provides a recognition of coordinators....[possibly an] umbrella organization of coordinators across the country...that would serve two purposes.
"First of all, it would be a single point of contact for the FCC to deal with amateurs on coordination matters. Second, it could be a group that would keep track of recognized coordinators...and serve as a second-level review for contested coordinations. It's far better to solve disputes within the amateur community rather than take those conflicts to the federal government."
The coordinators decided by an overwhelming margin (with just six people opposed) that it did want a "Point of Contact," or POC (variously described as a "Single" or "Interim" POC) between the amateur frequency coordinating community and the FCC. The group further decided, by a narrower but still decisive margin, that it wanted the ARRL to provide this contact. (A minority favored a separate organization, supported by the League but autonomous, similar to how the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation-AMSAT- was first organized.)
By ballot, the group elected a five-member drafting committee to develop a proposed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to define the role of the POC. The committee consists of Owen Wormser, K6LEW/4, of the Middle Atlantic FM and Repeater Council (T-MARC); Dick Isley, WD9GIG, of the Mid-America Coordination Council (MACC); Bill Kelsey, WA6FVC, of the Southern California Repeater and Remote Base Association (SCRRBA); Jim Fortney, K6IYK, of the 220 Spectrum Management Association; and Whit Brown, WBOCJX, of MACC/Colorado.
The plan is to have a draft MOU ready for consideration by the ARRL Board of Directors at its January meeting.
There was considerable discussion of the pros and cons of resuming repeater licensing. While no formal stance was taken, the group seemed to regard pursuit of mandatory coordination as potentially more fruitful than relicensing of repeaters.
There was insufficient time to deal with other topics of interest at the meeting; however, most attendees felt the meeting was very worthwhile, and in fact, historic. In addition to the coordination organizations attending, the following ARRL representatives were present: ARRL President Rod Stafford, KB6ZV; Vice President Tom Frenaye, K1KI; Directors Marshall Quiat, AGOX; Steve Mendelsohn, WA2DHF; Fried Heyn, WA6WZO; Lew Gordon, K4VX; Hugh Turnbull, W3ABC; and Ed Metzger, W9PRN.
Also attending were ARRL Executive Vice President David Sumner, K1ZZ, General Counsel Christopher Imlay, N3AKD; and Jay Mabey, NUOX, ARRL Repeater Directory Editor. n
FCC Sets New VE Test Fees
The ARRL Letter Vol. 14, No. 21
Effective January 1, 1996, the maximum allowable reimbursement fee for an amateur operator license examination will be $6.07. The FCC set this amount based on the Consumer Price Index between September 1994 and September 1995 and it will be an increase from the current $5.90.
Volunteer examiners and volunteer examiner coordinators may charge examinees for out of pocket expenses incurred in preparing, processing, administering, or coordinating reexaminations for amateur operator licenses. The amount of any such reimbursement fee from any one examinee for any one examination session, regardless of the number of elements administered, must not exceed the maximum allowable fee.
Beginning January 1 the ARRL/VEC will charge $6.05 to each applicant (other than candidates taking Novice Class elements 1A or 2). n
