Fellow Warc member Tom Ledoux (KD3DI) lost his wife this week.  Germaine would often accompany Tom to club meetings at the senior center and to events at the Fuge held by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Cold War Historical Society.  Their son Ted would also accompany them...  thought he was a ham but I can't find a call sign?

I will plan to attend Germaine's viewing held the same day as the funeral.  Apparently there is no evening viewing.  See below...  there is a picture on the Intell website.

Germaine (née Hyber) Ledoux
Chalfont - Germaine Ledoux (née Hyber) of Chalfont, Pennsylvania passed away in her home on March 28, 2022 and is back in the care of God. She was 79 years old. She is survived and loved by her husband, Tom, and all three of her children, Ted, Veronica, and Sarah.

Germaine was born on November 26, 1942 in Cleveland, Ohio. After receiving her masters degree from Duquesne University, where she met Tom, she became a pharmacist, wife, and mother. Germaine was an avid gardener, an active member of her church in the choir and Prayer Shawl Ministry, a habitual crafter and secretary for her local Embroidery Guild of America chapter, as well as taking part in book club, yoga and many other social groups. She will be dearly missed.

Relatives and friends are invited to Germaine's services on Wednesday, April 6th. Visitation will begin at 10am followed by the Funeral Mass at 11am at St. Jude Catholic Church at 321 West Butler Ave., Chalfont, PA.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to St. Jude Church (https://stjudechalfont.org).

New FCC Application Fee Will Not Apply to Amateur Radio License Upgrades

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) staff has clarified in response to an ARRL request that the new $35 application fee will not apply to most license modifications, including those to upgrade anamateur radio licensee's operator class and changes to club station trustees. The FCC staff explained that the new fees will apply only to applications for a new license, renewal, rule waiver, or a new vanity call sign. As previously announced, the new fees take effect on April 19, 2022.

"We are pleased that the FCC will not charge licensees the FCC application fee for license upgrade applications," said ARRL Volunteer Examiner Coordinator (VEC) Manager Maria Somma, AB1FM. "While applicants for a new license will need to pay the $35 FCC application fee, there will be no FCC charge for future upgrades and administrative updates, such as a change of mailing or email address. Most current licensees, therefore, will not be charged the new FCC application fee until they renew their license or apply for a new vanity call sign."

ARRL previously reported that the new $35 application fee for amateur radio licenses will become effective on April 19, 2022. Further information and instructions about the FCC Application Fee are available from the ARRL VEC at www.arrl.org/fcc-application-fee.

WSPR Beacon on the Air from Antarctica

AMSAT Argentina has assembled and delivered a permanent WSPR (Weak-Signal Propagation Reporter) beacon system to the Argentine research station at Esperanza Base on the Antarctic Peninsula. Using the call sign LU1ZV, the 200 mW beacon is presently active on 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters at 7.0386, 14.0956, 21.0946, and 28.1246 MHz, respectively, and reception has been reported by stations throughout the world.

The LU1ZV WSPR beacon is on the air from Esperanza Base, a permanent Antarctic research station.

WSPR is a digital communications protocol designed for reception at very weak-signal levels. It is part of the WSJT-X software suite. You can use WSJT-X to receive the LU1ZV beacon directly, or you can see reports from other stations online at www.wsprnet.org. [Thanks to the AMSAT News Service]

UK Amateurs Exploring 40 MHz

John Desmond, EI7GL, reports that Ofcom -- the communications regulator in the United Kingdom -- has granted temporary Innovation and Research licenses to several UK amateurs to transmit in the 40 MHz band.

On his blog, John stated that Roger Lapthorn, G3XBM, in the east of England will be operating beginning on April 2 with a license that is valid for 1 year. In a statement, Roger said, "After a very long wait, Ofcom has approved my 8-meter permit. It permits me to use 40 to 42 MHz with digital modes (including CW) at 5 W ERP maximum. I expect to erect a wire dipole that will be directed towards Europe. I expect to be mostly on FT8 around 40.676 MHz with a precise frequency done in liaison with others. My hope is all 8-meter FT8 stations can be monitored with one USB dial setting but spaced out. Five watts should certainly cover Europe when sporadic E is in play. I will try some local CW crossband QSOs but hope to be on FT8 24/7." [Thanks to Southgate ARC News]

The K7RA Solar Update

Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports:

Many solar flares and CMEs occurred over the reporting week (March 24 - 30) but with glancing blows and near misses it wasn't reflected in the geomagnetic indicators. The Planetary A index reached a high for the week of 19 on March 27. Average daily planetary A index rose by a modest amount from 6.3 to 10.

Average daily sunspot number rose from 33.4 to 80.1, while solar flux went from 99.9 to 132.7.

Predicted solar flux is forecast to be 150 on March 31 and April 1, then 145, 130, 125, 120, and 115 on April 2 - 6, 118 on April 7 - 9, then 115 and 110 on April 10 - 11, 105 on April 12 - 14, 108 on April 15, 105 on April 16 - 19, 110 on April 20 - 21, 115 on April 22, 125 on April 23 - 26, then 123, 118 and 118 on April 27 - 29, and 108 on April 30 through May 2.

On Wednesday, March 30, local news in Seattle was telling viewers that if only we had clear skies, we could see aurora tonight or tomorrow. This is likely with the predicted Planetary A index at 58 and 32 on March 31 and April 1, then 10, 12 and 10 on April 2 - 4, 8 on April 5 - 6, then 5 and quieter conditions on April 7 - 19, 10 on April 20 - 21, then 5, 15, and 10 on April 22 - 24, 5 on April 25 - 29, and 12, and 8 on April 30 and May 1.

We've been seeing more activity on 10 meters over the past week. Check it out.

Sunspot numbers for March 24 - 30, 2022, were 44, 50, 48, 97, 125, 124, and 73, with a mean of 80.1. 10.7-centimeter flux was 112, 112, 119, 130, 156, 149, and 151, with a mean of 132.7. Estimated Planetary A indices were 9, 10, 7, 18, 10, 8, and 8, with a mean of 10. Middle latitude A index was 6, 3, 6, 11, 4, 7, and 6, with a mean of 8.1

A comprehensive K7RA Solar Update is posted Fridays on the ARRL website. For more information concerning radio propagation, visit the ARRL Technical Information Service, read "What the Numbers Mean...," and check out the Propagation Page of Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LA.

A propagation bulletin archive is available. For customizable propagation charts, visit the VOACAP Online for Ham Radio website.

In Brief...

After careful deliberation, the SP DX Contest Committee, together with Polish Amateur Radio Union (PZK) and the SP DX Club, has decided to cancel the 2022 SP DX Contest. Since the start of the war in Ukraine, Poland has taken in more than 2 million refugees. Polish radio amateurs offer Ukrainian refugees accommodation in their homes and their help and services in any way they can. Under these exceptional circumstances, the organizers have decided that this year's SP DX Contest will be canceled. [Thanks to Southgate ARC]

Amateur radio researchers from NASA's Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI) have observed giant waves in the upper atmosphere known as Large-Scale Traveling Ionospheric Disturbances, or LSTIDs, for the first time. The observational results appear to demonstrate the effects of LSTIDs on radio communications, as well as add to the understanding about how the wave interface. The results were published in the American Geophysical Union journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Hello Everyone,

The next upcoming playtime will be a digital playtime net. I'd like to
explore and feature the different modes of FLDigi. This coming Tuesday lets
start to play in FeldHell. Its a strange virtual ticker tape mode that is
pretty neat.

Tuesday April 5th at 8pm over the repeater. I look forward to seeing and
hearing you there!

Thanks
