ARRL Continues Its Efforts to Preserve Amateur Radio Secondary Use of the 3
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
GHz Band
--------
ARRL President Rick Roderick, K5UR, in a written statement on the newly
filed H.R.5378 before the US House Commerce Communications and Technology
Subcommittee on Wednesday, urged Congress to direct the FCC to preserve
amateur radio's secondary use of the 3-GHz band. President Roderick's
statement was the result of a quick, well-organized response by ARRL to
counter the continuing threat to amateur radio's secondary use of the 3 GHz
band.

Approximately 10 days ago, ARRL became aware of a provision in the $3.5
Billion Budget Reconciliation Bill that would have required that
approximately 200 MHz of the 3.1 - 3.45-GHz band be reallocated to the use
of 5G vendors. Moving swiftly, the ARRL Executive Committee authorized
ARRL's Washington Counsel to begin preparations to respond. But, confronted
with the probable delay of the Reconciliation Bill and an uncertain future
for the 3 GHz provisions, Subcommittee Chairman Michael Doyle (D-PA-18) and
Representative Doris Matsui (D-CA-6) introduced similar reallocation
language on September 29 as H.R.5378 (117th Congress, 1st Session) and
scheduled hearings on it and related communications bills for October 6.

The Executive Committee and the Legislative Advocacy Committee immediately
set efforts in motion in Washington to obtain support for ARRL's position.
Meetings were held on short notice to request support with the offices of
Subcommittee members including Representatives Adam Kinzinger (R-IL-16) and
Tim Walberg (R-MI-7), as well as with Representatives John Larson (D-CT-1)
and Joe Courtney (D-CT-2).

In addition, ARRL Atlantic Division Vice Director Bob Famiglio, K3RF, and
ARRL Washington Counsel David Siddall, K3ZJ, met with Chairman Doyle's Chief
of Staff on October 1, to explain why it's important that amateur radio
continue to be permitted to operate in the 3.3 - 3.45-GHz band.

In his written statement to the Subcommittee in conjunction with the
hearing, President Roderick emphasized that permitting Amateur Radio to
continue to have use of the 3.3 - 3.45-GHz band on a strictly secondary,
non-interfering basis will provide full protection to commercial licensees
with exclusive licenses and further the public interest in providing a means
for continued technological innovation.

Despite vigorous opposition from ARRL and others, the FCC in 2020 ordered
the "sunsetting" of the 3.3 - 3.5 GHz band in order to auction the spectrum
to commercial 5G providers. The Commission allowed amateur operations to
continue in the lower 150 megahertz of the band, 3.3 - 3.45 GHz, until it
acts in a future rulemaking to address that spectrum. Amateur operations
were allowed to continue in the upper 50 megahertz, 3.45 - 3.5 GHz, only
until 90 days after the auction including that spectrum has closed. The
auction began this week; it is likely that operations will have to cease in
February or March, 2022.

"A core standard of spectrum policy should be to maximize use of this
valuable but finite spectrum resource," President Roderick told the panel.
"The [FCC] in earlier proceedings adopted a variety of methods to share and
maximize use of the spectrum by radio amateurs and others, but in its latest
3 GHz proceeding it did not do so, despite hundreds of comments filed by
radio amateurs."

President Roderick said that if the current policy continues, existing
spectrum at 3 GHz being addressed in H.R.5378 "will be cleared
indiscriminately," leaving "significant spectrum resources vacant into the
foreseeable future while radio amateur experimentation and operation will be
forced to cease for no reason except regulatory myopia. It need not be so."

President Roderick pointed out that in earlier proceedings, the FCC adopted
methods to ensure unencumbered spectrum access by primary users while
accommodating secondary users on a non-interference basis. "These methods
work well and remain effective without complaint in other frequency bands,
and also should be applied to the 3 GHz band," he said.

Primary commercial users "would rarely use all of their licensed spectrum
throughout their entire licensed service areas," President Roderick said. In
its recent 3 GHz proceeding, however, the FCC "went beyond merely
prohibiting amateur operations in areas and at times when primary Commission
licensees might use the spectrum," ruling instead that all amateur operation
in the subband being auctioned must terminate within 90 days of the
auction's close. President Roderick told the FCC that it is not logical for
the Commission to leave spectrum unused before licensees start using it.

He said there is no technical basis for removing amateur secondary
operations from the 3 GHz band where radio amateurs "long have used the bits
and pieces of unused spectrum for technological innovation."

H.R.5378 is not yet law, and ARRL's efforts to preserve amateur radio access
to 3.3 - 3.45 on a secondary basis will continue. Read an expanded version.

ARDC Grant Provides ARESLAX with Sophisticated Noise Location Capabilities
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
ARESLAX, an arm of the ARRL Los Angeles Section, has used a $23,600 grant
from Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC) to purchase equipment that
will help Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARESİ) team members to locate and
eliminate sources of radio frequency interference (RFI) that could hinder
their operations.

"ARESLAX is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization supporting emergency
communication initiatives of the Los Angeles Section's ARES program," ARRL
Los Angeles Section Manager Diana Feinberg, AI6DF, explained. "Earthquakes
and wildfires are the primary disaster threats this region faces. Because
these incidents occur without any advance warning, disaster communication
groups in the Los Angeles Section must maintain a high degree of readiness."

Thanks to the grant, Feinberg said, last spring ARESLAX purchased a Fluke
ii910 Precision Acoustic Imager, which combines ultrasonic detection with
visual techniques to pinpoint an interference source, such as power line
noise, and produce photographic evidence. At the same time, ARESLAX used its
own funds to purchase a Radar Engineers 243 RFI Locator and spent the summer
familiarizing itself with the sophisticated equipment.

"By combining these two purchases with our preexisting equipment, ARRL Los
Angeles Section Technical Specialist Chris Parker, AF6PX, believes the Los
Angeles Section now has EMI/RFI locating capabilities exceeding those of
area utility companies and their contractors," Feinberg said.

"For an increasing number of Los Angeles Section hams, EMI or RFI issues
have made the HF bands difficult or impossible to use for DXing, contesting,
emergency communication, or casual operating," Feinberg said. She pointed
out that the network of overhead power lines that expanded with the county
from 1940 through 2010 has now deteriorated, resulting in arcing.
"Additionally, our urban noise floor is rising from the millions of
electrical devices used by consumers and businesses, including solar
charging controllers and grow lights," Feinberg said.

RFI complaints can go unresolved for years, and tracking down interference
sources has been the focus of a corps of technical volunteers. The new
equipment makes that job far less time-consuming and more successful,
ARESLAX said. Read an expanded version.

ARRL Podcasts Schedule
----------------------
The latest episode of the On the Air podcast (Episode 21) features a

what it may mean for amateurs.

The On the Air and Eclectic Tech podcasts are sponsored by Icom. Both
podcasts are available on iTunes (iOS) and Stitcher (Android) as well as on
Blubrry -- On the Air | Eclectic Tech.

The Premiere of NIGHT, the Movie
--------------------------------
During the Edmond (Oklahoma) Amateur Radio Society's ARRL Field Day 2021,
Marcus Sutliff, N5ZY, spoke with visitors from John D'Aquino's Young Actors
Workshop (YAW) and learned of their plans to make a short film in which
amateur radio plays a role, and that they needed some help. The filming was
to take place in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and they needed someone with film or
video experience and someone who could serve as a technical advisor. Kevin
O'Dell, N0IRW -- a member of the ARRL Public Relations Committee -- became
involved in the project, and in short order, he was able to assemble radios
and props, consult on the script, and get ready for a long day of filming.

The film's purpose is to give aspiring young actors a chance to hone their
craft in a real movie environment. Thanks to the Oklahoma Film and Music
Office, they were able to shoot three movie shorts in Oklahoma. In the Camp
Hollywood 2021 film NIGHT, the young actors mature as the movie progresses.

The story begins on a day when the sun mysteriously has failed to rise. One
character mentions firing up grandpa's ham radio. His younger brother
reminds him that he once called ham radio "the dinosaur's internet," but now
it could be one source of help or information. The actual internet is down,
along with power, telephones, and apparently satellites. All the adults are
conveniently absent. The ending will leave you hoping for NIGHT 2. The movie
premiered recently and is now available on YouTube as a 34-minute short.

O'Dell stars as the ham radio voice of Colonel. He and Sutliff appear in the
credits, so stay through the end.

O'Dell got a shout-out from ARRL Oklahoma Section Manager Mark Kleine,
N5HZR. "Thanks, Kevin, for putting a great light on amateur radio," he said.

Radio Amateurs Invited to Participate in the Antarctic Eclipse Festival in
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
December
--------
The HamSCI Antarctic Eclipse Festival in December is seeking amateur radio
participation. As the shadow of the moon passes across Antarctica on
December 4, it will generate traveling ionospheric disturbances that will,
in turn, affect radio propagation. The unusual geometry of this year's
eclipses will give researchers an opportunity to investigate complicated
ionospheric dynamics over the poles as the long daytime of polar summer is
briefly interrupted by the eclipse.

During this and other HamSCI eclipse festivals, hams and citizen-scientists
are asked to collect Doppler-shift data from time-standard stations, such as
WWV. All that's needed is an HF radio connected to a computer. A
GPS-disciplined oscillator is helpful for collecting data, but it is not
required. Data collection will run from December 1 through December 10, and
the results will be made available for scientific analysis.

All radio amateurs and shortwave listeners are invited to join in, even
those located far from the path of totality. In 2020, more than 100
individuals from 45 countries took part in eclipse festivals.The
instructions are available in multiple languages.

HamSCI is an initiative of ham radio operators and geospace scientists
dedicated to advancing scientific research and understanding through amateur
radio activities. Eclipse festivals are pilot campaigns for the Personal
Space Weather Station (PSWS), HamSCI's flagship project. The PSWS team seeks
to develop a global network of citizen-science stations. Participants
monitor the geospace environment to deepen scientific understanding and
enhance the radio art.

For more information on the Antarctic Eclipse Festival and how to
participate, visit the HamSCI website. -- Thanks to Kristina Collins, KD8OXT

ARRL Seeks New Treasurer
------------------------
After 10 years of distinguished service to ARRL as its volunteer Treasurer,
Frederick "Rick" Niswander, K7GM, has decided to step down when his current
term expires in January 2022. ARRL is seeking qualified candidates from
among its membership. The Board of Directors elects the Treasurer and other
officers at its annual meeting in even-numbered years.

The Treasurer is a non-voting member of the Board of Directors and must be a
licensed radio amateur and a full member of the ARRL for 4 continuous years
prior to nomination. The ARRL Bylaws define the role of the Treasurer as
follows:

In consultation with and subject to the general supervision of the
Administration and Finance Committee, provides for the investment and
reinvestment of the surplus funds of the League in any bonds, stocks, or
other securities as would be selected by a trustee with the care of a
prudent investor.

Provides reports to and attends all regular meetings of the Board of
Directors.

Serves as a member of the Administration and Finance Committee and, if
assigned, subcommittees of the Board or Administrative and Finance Committee.

The position is unpaid; however, necessary expenses including travel to
meetings are reimbursable. For further information see the full position
description.

A search committee has been established to recommend one or more candidates
for Treasurer to the Board. Qualified members are invited to submit a
statement of interest and qualifications via email to
TreasurerSearch@arrl.org. The deadline is November 12, 2021.

Microsoft Releases Windows Version 11
-------------------------------------
The official release date for the new Windows 11 operating system is October
5, Microsoft has announced, but it will be a slow reveal. Radio amateurs may
be eager to learn if it will run the station software they're running under
Windows 7 or Windows 10, and if they'll need new device drivers.

"We are not too concerned," said Tom Wagner, N1MM, of the widely popular,
free logging software that bears his call sign -- N1MM Logger+. "One member
of the team and one end user has tested with Windows 11 and not reported
issues. We will fix them if they arise."

The WSJT-X Development Group is similarly unconcerned. "A few WSJT-X users
have been running on the beta Windows 11 release without any issues," said
Bill Somerville, G4WJS. "This seems to be reasonable evidence that there
should be no serious problems."

Microsoft said that the free upgrade to Windows 11 has begun rolling out to
eligible Windows 10 PCs, and PCs that come pre-loaded with Windows 11 will
start to become available for purchase on October 5. A prompt to upgrade to
Windows 11 will come to newer devices first, with all eligible devices to
receive their updates by next summer, according to Gear Patrol.

Windows 11 has higher technical requirements than Windows 10, which will be
deprecated in 2025. Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7 or earlier
iterations. Machines will need to have a 64-bit CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of
storage, and have Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 1.2 or later enabled.

Aaron Woodman, General Manager of Windows Marketing at Microsoft, told The
Verge, "We expect all eligible devices to be offered the free upgrade to
Windows 11 by mid-2022."

Microsoft will continue to support Windows 10 until October 14, 2025. Read
an expanded version.

The K7RA Solar Update
---------------------
Tad Cook, K7RA, Seattle, reports: Sunspots were visible every day this week,
but numbers were lower. Average daily sunspot numbers declined from 58.4 to
30.7, and average daily solar flux was down 2.9 points to 86.9.

Geomagnetic activity was a little higher, with average daily planetary A
index going from 7.3 to 8.1, and average daily middle latitude A index from
6.3 to 6.7.

Friday, October 1 was affected by a solar flare from sunspot group AR2871,
driving the planetary A index to 15. This had a greater effect at higher
latitudes, with Alaska's College A index hitting 30 and 31 on Friday and
Saturday. In the middle of the UTC day on Saturday, the College K index hit
7 -- a high number.

Predicted solar flux is 82 on October 7 - 9; 80 on October 10 - 13; 75 on
October 14 - 16; then 80, 85, 88, and 90 on October 17 - 20; 88 on October
21 - 22; 85 on October 23 - 24; 90, 100, 95, and 90 on October 25 - 28; 88
on October 29 - November 5; 85 and 80 on November 6 - 7, and 75 on November
8 - 12.

Predicted planetary A index is 5 on October 7; 8 on October 8 - 10; 12 and 8
on October 11 - 12; 5 on October 13 - 17; 10, 12, 10, and 8 on October 18 -
21; 5 on October 22 - 24; 10 on October 25; 5 on October 26 - 31; 8 on
November 1 - 2; 5 on November 3; 8 on November 4 - 5, and 5 on November 6 -
13.

Sunspot numbers for September 30 - October 6 were 46, 28, 25, 38, 29, 27,
and 22, with a mean of 30.7. The 10.7-centimeter flux was 94.6, 90.5, 87,
86, 83.5, 81.7, and 84.8, with a mean of 86.9. Estimated planetary A indices
were 9, 15, 8, 6, 6, 5, and 8, with a mean of 8.1. Middle latitude A index
was 6, 13, 6, 6, 4, 6, and 6, with a mean of 6.7.
