World Radio Communication Conference Starts Monday #ARRL #hamradio

From K1ZZ

The World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 is due to open in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, on Monday 28 October. The meeting, which lasts four weeks, will be attended by three thousand delegates from most of the countries around the world, and will discuss and agree changes to the ITU Radio Regulations.
IARU and its member-societies will be there, representing the amateur and amateur satellite services with a team of 14 people from 10 countries.
Of particular interest to IARU are the positions on:
-              Agenda Item (AI) 1.1, to allocate spectrum in the 50-54 MHz Region in Region 1 to the amateur service
-              AI 1.13 to consider new spectrum of International Mobile Telecommunications, which potentially might impact amateur spectrum at around 47 GHz
-              AI 1.16 which could impact the 5 GHz amateur spectrum
-              AI 9.1.6 on Wireless Power Transmission, where harmonics of WPT systems can impact the MF/HF radio spectrum
-              AI 10 – where it is possible that future agenda items at WRC-23 could impact the amateur service, including the 1240-1300 MHz band.
What does it take to be an International Amateur Radio Union member?  Again K1ZZ explains:
To be eligible for IARU membership the organization must be a noncommercial association of radio amateurs, devoted to the objectives of the IARU and "substantially covering by influence and recognition the country and/or territories which it represents." The quote is from the IARU Constitution. The Bylaws are a bit more specific. An applicant must supply evidence that it "adequately represents the interests of amateurs throughout the country and/or separate territory which it proposes to represent, has the ability to meet its financial obligations as a member of the Union, and is legally able to act in the furtherance of IARU objectives within its country and/or separate territory." There can only be one IARU member-society representing a country or separate territory.

The "or separate territory" language makes it possible for, for example, Bermuda and Gibraltar (among others) to be members of the IARU separate from the UK, which is ably represented by the RSGB.
NO other amateur radio organization in the United States meets those conditions.  This is only ONE of over 50 reasons an amateur radio operator in the United States should be a member of the American Radio Relay League.  Do YOU want some other country telling YOU where you can operate your amateur radio station?

Oklahoma DX Association Fall Banquet: Open Invitation! #hamradio

My name is Kim Elmore, N5OP, and I'm the President of the Oklahoma DX
Association. We're announcing our Fall OKDXA Banquet as an open
invitation to /*all*/ Oklahoma hams as part of a general effort to be
more visible to you. The OKDXA Banquet is set for Saturday October 19th
at 6 pm, and will be held in the meeting room at the Cattle Country
Lodge, 1200 N. 8th Ave., Stroud, Oklahoma. The banquet fee is $15 which
includes an all-you-can-eat buffet meal. If you've not been there, the
Cattle Country Inn is a bit of a well-kept secret regarding their
buffet: it's quite good! The buffet will feature fried chicken, fried
catfish, baked ham, lots of veggies, and some sumptuous desserts. I'm
not puffing this place up: it's quite good and $15 is a heckuva deal.

Our guest speaker this year is Bill Priakos, W5SJ, of Ft. Smith,
Arkansas. Bill was part of the TX5T Austral Islands DXpedition as one of
the operators and will present a nice show about his experiences as a
part of that effort. He's operated from numerous DX locations over the
years and is scheduled to go with many of the same group to TX7T
Marquesas DXpedition this November.?? He's well known among those that do
serious DXpeditioning and brings a wealth of DXing knowledge; we're
certainly looking forward to learning about his experiences and

At this very moment, two club members -- Jeff Martin (K5WE) and Bill
Roberson (N5AQ) -- are on a DXpedition to VP2V, the British Virgin
Islands, as VP2VEM and VP2/N5AQ. While their DXpedition is entirely
self-funded, the OKDXA helps fund other DXpeditions to more rare
entities.?? To that end, we always have a raffle as a fund-raiser at our
Fall Banquets. If you'd like to contribute, please bring an item to
raffle off and, while you're at it, buy some raffle tickets!

If you are a member of another club and your club will have a meeting
between now October 19th, please announce the banquet at your meeting.
And invite your ham friends!

While we often request an RSVP with your name and the number attending
so we have some idea about how many will attend, we don't require an
RSVP: the hotel will simply keep fixing food providing chairs until
everyone has a seat and fixing food until everyone is full. So, if you
know you're coming, drop me a line at But if
you're not sure and prefer to make a last minute decision, don't worry:
there will still be a seat for you!

73 and see you at the banquet!

Support for West Gulf Division from @N7XYO

I support John Robert Stratton, N5AUS, for re-election as Director of the ARRL West Gulf Division. No other candidate has done more to support our hobby and worked harder to guide the management of the ARRL.
I first met John at the Green Country Hamfest in Claremore, Okla. He was the new Vice Director for the ARRL West Gulf after Dr. David Woolweaver, K5RAV, stepped up for become Director.
From our first conversation I have found John to be a strong advocate for amateur radio. In addition to being a Division Director, John is a vital part of the ARRL’s Executive Committee. He is also a strong voice for the ARRL members with in the West Gulf Division and the Radio Amateur community at large.
John is a practicing attorney in Austin, Tex. I know that John has a love of technology that stems from love of amateur radio and his bachelor of science degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas.
John is a respected and well-liked and respected professional, which is only one of the many reasons why the Radio Club of America (RCA) recently appointed him to Vice President and Co-Counsel. And why I will be casting my vote for West Gulf Division Director for John Robert Stratton, N5AUS.

Are you checking into your local and Section Nets? #ARRL #hamradio

There are some local and Section nets that are available for your enjoyment.  

Monday, the Ponca City 146.97 net is available on Echolink for Statewide use.

Tuesday, there's a YL net on the Kan-Okla System.

Wednesday, the Wheatstraw net is on 146.01 mHz.

Thursday, the W5IAS system has a net.

Friday, the 220 group in the Tulsa area has a net.  It's available on Allstar.

There are plenty of others.  Do you have a favorite net?  Is it registered on the League net directory?

If it's too hot for you, here's two feet of snow
to cool you off.

The traveling #hamradio operator needs you to .... #ARRL

... keep your repeaters in your area up to date.

Two resources are available for the Mission.  Repeaterbook and Rfinder are online resources with Android and IOS applications.  The latter has replaced the ARRL Repeater directory.

BOTH rely on local users to let them know changes in the repeaters in the area.  The former uses area administrators to oversee the process but they don't do all the work.  The real work comes from reports from users like you.

Repeaterbook can always use administrators.  For example, if you are in the Tulsa, OKC, Guymon, Lawton, McAlester, Durant area, volunteer to be an admin.  There's no cost but your time and the value is immense.

In the mean time, summer travelers need to know what is available.  The next step is to have someone listening when the call comes over the air.

Winlink announces third-party traffic rules #hamradio #ARRL

If you are a US-licensed station that routinely connects to a foreign gateway, or a non-US-licensed station that connects with a US gateway, you may be affected by new CMS behavior. The Winlink CMS now will enforce US Third-Party Message rules.

Because Winlink is being severely criticized for allowing US client and gateway operators to violate US amateur radio third-party traffic rules, we are today starting to test automatic enforcement of these rules. Part 97.3(47), 97.115 and 97.117 apply.

If you attempt to send or receive a third-party message between a US-licensed station and another station the US does not have a third-party communication agreement with, you may receive a service message saying the message will violate the applcable rules and that the message is refused (if you're sending) or being held at the CMS (if you are receiving). Alternative means to successfully send or receive the message will be explained. The US has treaties with most countries in the North and South America, but not most European, Asian and Pacific countries.

If you are a US-licensee, you should have no trouble sending and receiving to/from internet addresses if you connect with another US-licensed gateway, or one licensed in Central or South America — as long as the US has a third-party agreement with the licensing country.

If you are a non-US licensee, you should have no trouble sending and receiving to/from internet addresses if you connect to non-US licensed gateways.

We wish this was not necessary, but we have relied on US client and gateway operators to know the rules and obey them—and most have ignored them, unfortunately for all of us. In order to clean up the violations we are taking these measures to keep US Winlink operators legal. All licensees have an obligation to study, know, and obey the Amateur Radio Rules.

New monitoring and enforcement measures are coming into play with the establishment of a new Volunteer Monitor Program, now being set up by the ARRL at the request of the US FCC. We're doing this to make it easier for US operators to avoid loosing their licenses!

We will be tweaking the behavior of this new mechanism to make it as friendly and informative as it can be. Please bear with us as we make changes.

Thanks and 73,

Lor W3QA

Earl Bottom is Silent Key #ARRL #hamradio

Earl Bottom out in Elk City became a Silent Key on Sunday, June 23rd. Earl was a mover and shaker in Amateur Radio in western Oklahoma. He connected your section leadership with Rep. Frank Lucas for a 1 on 1 sitdown. Earl has also been the ramrod for the Elk City Hamfest. In addition to being my right hand in western Oklahoma, he was a very busy man as you will see in his obit.....
Earl Grayson Bottom, 62, of Hammon, Oklahoma entered this world on September 8, 1956, and passed June 23, 2019, after a brave and courageous battle with cancer. Earl was a long-time cattle rancher and was well known throughout Western Oklahoma. Earl frequently volunteered his time and served many worthy causes. He was a ham radio enthusiast and cherished friend of many.
Earl served many prominent roles in the community, including President of the Hammon High School Alumni Association. He was an active member and former President of the Cattlemen’s Association of Roger Mills County, a member of the Elk’s Lodge of Elk City, and he served as a Red Cross volunteer and certified CPR Instructor. He was active for many years as a leader and mentor in the Boys Scouts of America. Some of his honors and activities in scouting include: District Award of Merit, Council Coordinator for the Philmont Scouting Program, Western Plains Day Camp Director and Co-Director for many years and served on numerous Wood Badge courses. Earl was the Game Day Coordinator of the Scouting Usher program at the OU football games where he established many long-time friendships among fans who sat in the South end zone. Because of his immense impact on the young men he led, Earl was recognized with the Silver Beaver Award, one of Boy Scout’s highest awards. Ham radio enthusiasts far and near knew Earl as N5NEB after the many late-night radio chats and ham fests he helps organize and attend. Earl, who earned his ham license in the late 1980’s, served in the past as the West Central Oklahoma Amateur Radio Club President. He was the leader of the Possum Trappers, a group which talked every night and met yearly for a reunion which Earl organized. In recent years, Earl had become an ardent supporter of the Oklahoma City Thunder and rarely missed watching a game from his seat in Section 206. Earl truly enjoyed life and had a servant’s heart! 
Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at A.G. “Buck” Creach Memorial Auditorium, Hammon, Oklahoma. Tom Harguess will be officiating, and Dolan Ivey will assist. Interment will be in Red Hill Cemetery, Hammon, Oklahoma. Services have been entrusted to the care of Martin-Dugger Funeral Home in Elk City, Oklahoma.

#ARRL Field Day coming soon to a location near you. #FieldDay2019 #hamradio

The Oklahoma City Autopatch Association (OCAPA), a local amateur radio club, will be participating in "Field Day, 2019", a national amateur radio emergency communications exercise, on the 22-23 of June, 2019. Sponsored by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), A  Field Day, 2019" will begin on Saturday at 1:00 PM, continuing for 24 hours until 1:00 PM Sunday. This year's OCAPA Field Day site will be at the Atkinson Heritage Center ‘Pony Barn’. Set up will begin at 9:00 AM, Saturday morning.

This 24 hour communications exercise demonstrates the value of amateur radio and allows amateur radio operators an opportunity to practice establishing communication stations in non-traditional locations, operating them for extended periods, and give new amateur radio operators training in emergency communications procedures. Visitors are welcome and will even be given an opportunity to operate one of the Field Day@ stations. Approximately 1,500 amateur radio stations will participate in "Field Day, 2019".

Amateur radio operators are best know for serving the Oklahoma area as storm spotters during threatening weather and providing supplemental communications to first responder agencies. Most recently, amateur radio operators provided communication and backup power for the Bridge Creek Fire Departments after power was lost and antennas for their public service radio equipment were damage by tornadoes.

After the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, over three hundred amateur radio operators helped sustain emergency communications for rescue, recovery and relief operations. Communications operations were sustained for over 330 hours through the support of 'hams' from Metropolitan Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton and around Oklahoma. 'Hams' from Kansas and Texas also came to Oklahoma City to lend their support.

Additionally, amateurs provide communications support to various public events such as the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Over 100 amateur radio operators provide public service communications for the Marathon. The amateur radio community has been supporting the Marathon since its= first running in 2001.

A majority of the NASA International Space Station (ISS) astronauts are licensed amateur radio operators. They operate a portable 'ham' station from the ISS to promote interest in science, and amateur radio, among elementary and middle school students.

Another Statewide APRS Net - THIS SATURDAY #ARRL #hamradio

It's that time again,  the Tulsa Digital Radio Club will hold an APRS net at 1300 CDT on Saturday.

Net control station will be Scott Haley KD5NJR.  

Hams are encouraged to check-in by sending an APRS message to KD5NJR.

As an exercise, try the ANSRVR server.  Subscribe to the OKAPRS group for the duration of the net. Instructions are here :

The Statewide DMR talkgroup will also be monitored.

APRS messages can be generated from
  • certain HTs and mobile radios (ex: Kenwood TH-D72, TM-D710, etc
  • .smart phones with APRS apps,
  • computers paired with TNCs and radios, and (example : UI-VIEW)
  • computers with soundcard-based modems and radios. (example : UZ7HO Soundmodem and APRSIS32

We continue to operate HF APRS using the instructions located at .  As an additional incentive for this upcoming net, a certificate of appreciation from the Tulsa Digital Radio Club (TRDC) will be sent to those stations that try this new high-tech wrinkle on the two decades old HF APRS mode.  The HF APRS net will be running on 7036 kHz at a center frequency of 1000 Hz using MFSK-16 for highest robustness during the net.

Popular for about 20 years now, APRS is a format for sending short textual messages over amateur radio.  Short bursts of APRS can conserve your battery power and radio spectrum.  It lends itself to low power applications such as travelers, backpackers and in emergency situations.  APRS radio sets are popular with hikers, experimenters (model airplane and rocket enthusiasts) and there is even an APRS terminal on the International Space Station.   Background information is available at : 

Questions or comments may be directed to Scott Haley or Jeff Scoville AE5ME at
