CQ WW DX Contest: Categoría Extrema

Una Nueva Categoría “Extrema” está siendo agregada al concurso CQ WW DX para fomentar el desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías en las comunicaciones de radioaficionados en general y en los concursos en particular. De acuerdo con el director del CQ WW, Bob Cox, K3EST, esta nueva categoría ha sido establecida para permitir a los aficionados participar en el CW WW mientras experimentan creativamente con estaciones vinculadas por internet y otras tecnologías nuevas no permitidas en ninguna de las demás categorías. Las reglas de la categoría “Extrema” tal cual han sido aprobadas por el comite del CQ WW, siguen a continuación, junto con una detallada explicación de como se funcionará el sistema de puntajes. Esta nueva categoría será efectiva  en el concurso CQ WW de 2009 a desarrollarse más adelante este año.

Mystery of the Missing Sunspots, Solved?

June 17, 2009: The sun is in the pits of a century-class solar minimum, and sunspots have been puzzlingly scarce for more than two years. Now, for the first time, solar physicists might understand why. At an American Astronomical Society press conference today in Boulder, Colorado, researchers announced that a jet stream deep inside the sun is migrating slower than usual through the star’s interior, giving rise to the current lack of sunspots. Rachel Howe and Frank Hill of the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Tucson, Arizona, used a technique called helioseismology to detect and track the jet stream down to depths of 7,000 km below the surface of the sun.

Fab, DJ1YFK @ 150-200 WPM

Yes, can you believe that? 200 wpm -words per minute – Morse Code. There are just a few guys in the world that can copy at that speed, one of them is my good friend Fab, DJ1YFK. He is in the top list of hte RUFZxp permanent ultra high speed Morse Code contest. www.rufzxp.net . He is also top in the standings of the Bavarian Contest Club High Speed CW competition using the contest simulator by JE3MAS. http://www.bavarian-contest-club.de/contest/ped/highscore.php
I bet you won’t copy a single bit of what’s he is doing in the videos, but anyway it’s amazing to see how he performs!!!

In this first video he copies JA7MEH at 1000 CPM, that is 200 WPM based on the PARIS meassure system. He copied the call on the first try!

Tarik – 9 y/o – Ruling the Airwaves!

Tarik – 9 y/o kid- Operating CW at YT1AAV!! He for sure is making a 2 way CW (Morse Code) QSO with some distant fellow radio amateur over the air waves. The magic is still there! Gotta get in touch with it and enjoy it yourself!
