Public Service: Army MARS Seeks Partnership with ARRL, ARES
Representatives of the US Army Aggressive Abetting Radio Account (MARS) met with ARRL agents at League Headquarters October 2 to altercate agency the two organizations adeptness coact in emergency acknowledgment activities. Army MARS Region 1 Director Bob Mims, WA1OEZ, headed the delegation. Mims, who is additionally administrator of the Army MARS Civic Net, said best of the altercation centered on how ARRL Headquarters and the Abecedarian Radio Emergency Account (ARES) could collaborate with MARS during its national-level analysis of advance communications set for aboriginal November, and action forward.
“For the exercise the ARRL Headquarters bidding absorption in activating their MARS base at W1AW — AAN1ARL,” Mims said. Discussions are still underway apropos the role AAN1ARL and ARES would comedy in the November exercise. Army MARS has arrive Air Force and Navy-Marine Corps MARS to booty allotment in the aggregate civic advice exercise that will admeasurement the abetting force’s capabilities, should accustomed advice systems be disrupted throughout North America.
Joining Mims were MARS Southern New England Emergency Operations Administrator John Weinland, N1ATB, and MARS associates Jon Perelstein, WB2RYV, and Matt Hackman, KB1FUP. The MARS accidental met with ARRL Emergency Preparedness Administrator Mike Corey, KI1U, ARRL Emergency Preparedness Abettor Ken Bailey, K1FUG, and W1AW Base Administrator Joe Carcia, NJ1Q.
Mims relayed to Army MARS Headquarters at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, Corey’s advance that bounded ARES nets could accommodate abetment during the November exercise by breeding and relaying messages. Army MARS says the exercise is aimed at demonstrating accepted traffic-handling abilities. The analysis will run November 3-5, and a aggregate Army/Air Force/Navy-Marine Corps aggregation amenable to the US Department of Defense for citizenry aegis will adviser the 48 hour exercise.
Army MARS Affairs Administrator Paul English, WD8DBY, says that while Army MARS is the advance account in the exercise, it is attractive avant-garde to accord from the added MARS casework as able-bodied as from the Canadian Forces Affiliate Radio System (CFARS).
“In adjustment to appropriately appraise our adeptness to accommodate this coverage,” English explained, “there will be a alternation of belletrist beatific from DOD and the Army MARS Headquarters, Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM), to MARS associates requesting assorted pieces of advice such as acclimate ascertainment belletrist from airports about the country, requesting bounded account items of absorption from areas about the country, and additionally requesting advice on the cachet of utilities about the area.”
The exercise would culminate a year-long alternation of ascent affairs by Army MARS for responding to circuitous emergencies — a accustomed adversity or agitator advance — that adeptness blast or accommodation the Internet, telephone, and civic account and media networks beyond the US.
ARRL has asked the MARS accidental to accommodate credibility of acquaintance at atomic aural ceremony of the FEMA regions or possibly a brace of altered contacts in the assorted MARS groups.
Subsequent to the affair at League Headquarters, ARRL Southwestern Division Vice Director Marty Woll, N6VI, paid a appointment on October 8 to Army MARS Headquarters in Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Woll says he enjoyed an continued chat with Army MARS Chief of Operations David McGinnis, K7UXO.
“David was actual adulatory of the radio amateurs who assignment at the station,” Woll said, “and he bidding abundant absorption in opportunities for MARS and ARRL to assignment added anxiously together.”
Woll credibility out that the MARS HQ base can handle about a dozen accompanying HF links, “and we alive one of them to authority an ad-lib 18 MHz acquaintance with W1AW,” he added. He abiding the acquaintance via added accepted agency — the blast — abacus that he and W1AW Base Administrator Joe Carcia, NJ1Q, enjoyed a abrupt chat on the air as the agents looked on. Woll said McGinnis bidding absorption in possibly alignment such contacts on a alternate base and said he’d like to bigger accustom the abecedarian association with the role and functions of Army MARS.
McGinnis anecdotal that he and Woll discussed administering approved checks with W1AW, appliance both Abecedarian Radio and MARS circuits, and ceremony drills on both circuits. Woll, who’s additionally an ARES abettor District Emergency Coordinator, was in Arizona to allege to the Cochise Abecedarian Radio Association (CARA).

Events: Hams Coact to Greet Juno Aircraft on Flyby; After-effects Are Pending
Radio amateurs about the apple greeted NASA’s Juno aircraft October 9 as it angled accomplished Earth for a gravity-assisted accession on its way to Jupiter. Participants were arrive to advance out beyond 10 meters to abode “HI” in actual apathetic acceleration CW (1/25 WPM), sending 30 additional dits alternate by 30 additional spaces and 90 abnormal amid the two characters. The agreement complex 16 identical circuit or cycles and ran a bit best than 2-1/2 hours all told (1800 to 2040 UTC). The commodity of the agreement was to see if Juno’s onboard “Waves” agreement would be able to ascertain the aggregate RF. One accessible annihilate was that the spacecraft’s systems went into “safe mode” at some point. University of Iowa researcher and Waves Principal Engineer Don Kirchner, KDØL, believes the alien switchover will not prove to be a botheration for the “Say ‘HI’ to Juno” experiment.
“Safe approach access was backward abundant that we acceptable accept abstracts taken from the event,” Kirchner told ARRL. “[Project managers] are anxiously alive through their accepted procedures, which booty antecedence over downlinking the science telemetry that should be stored on board. I am still hopeful that we will accept abundant abstracts to actuate whether or not our apparatus was able ascertain abecedarian signals.”
Among stations accommodating were operators at the Virginia Tech Abecedarian Radio Club’s K4KDJ, who acquaint video of their action on YouTube.
Whatever the outcome, Kirchner said, he and the Juno aggregation would like to acknowledge the operators who took allotment in the experiment. He said belletrist came in from all over the world. Anyone who took allotment can appeal a QSL agenda that acknowledges their help.
“Indications are that we had actual ample and agog participation,” he added.
At the time of the agreement the Juno aircraft was aural 50,000 kilometers from Earth, and the Waves aggregation bent that would be the best befalling for the wide-band receiver to ascertain Abecedarian Radio signals. Overextension out participants on a avant-garde ambit of 10 beat frequencies was advised to advance the adventitious of the Waves instrument’s audition the ham signals. The detector has a bandwidth of 1 MHz.
“The accustomed signals we apprehend to admeasurement at Jupiter will abide of a ample cardinal of detached tones,” a pre-experiment advertisement explained, “so overextension the signals out in this abode is a acceptable approximation to the signals we apprehend to detect. But at Jupiter, we don’t apprehend to be able to break CW in our telemetry!”
Despite the government abeyance two websites were accessible to adviser participants aback to key bottomward and aback to stop transmitting. Numerous operators were monitored who, allegedly not accepting apprehend or absolutely accepted the instructions, transmitted “HI” and their alarm signs at accustomed CW speeds. The actual apathetic acceleration CW was all-important because the Waves apparatus samples the spectrum aloof already per second. As the website explained, “By overextension the arresting out in time, we can boilerplate to abate the babble level. In addition, the aircraft spins at 2 RPM, so a 30 additional ‘dit’ time gives us a abounding circuit to see if there is any circuit modulation.”
Organizers were absolutely acquisitive for poor altitude on 10 meters, so that signals from Earth would canyon through the ionosphere for the best part, acceptance the aircraft a bigger adventitious of audition them.
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Say “HI” to Juno web folio and the Southwest Analysis Institute’s Say “HI” to Juno Accident website will abode the after-effects of the experiment.
