18. June 2024_Newsmail / Contest / HQDeutsche Version: Operateure für den HQ Contest 2024 gesucht Version française: Le championnat du monde des radioamateurs approche Versione italiana: Si avvicina il campionato mondiale dei radioamatori English version: The world championship of radio amateurs is approaching The world championship of radio amateurs is approaching The annual world championship of radio amateurs will take place again on July 13/14, 2024. It is called the “IARU HF World Championship”, lasts 24 hours and begins on Saturday, July 13, 2024, at 2 p.m. Swiss summer time. The USKA will be taking part as the national association for Switzerland with station HB9HQ. In addition to Rapport 59(9), the other 160-plus national associations of the IARU (International Amateur Radio Union) will also send an acronym of the society such as “DARC”, “ARRL”, “JARL”, while the members of the board and supervisory board will add their respective represented region such as “R1” (e.g. for HB9JOE as treasurer), “R2”, “R3” or “AC”. All national associations and the members of the board or supervisory board count as multipliers. All other participating stations exchange the ITU zone of their location during the contest in addition to the report (for the intelligibility and strength of the radio signal). For the territory of the Swiss Confederation (HB9), this would be the number “28”, i.e. 59(9)28. In remote operation, the location of the antenna from which the signal is emitted counts. The list on the USKA website shows which highly motivated radio teams/OM are to work under “HB9HQ” on which bands and in which operating modes. We are still looking for operators. If you are interested, please contact hq@uska.ch The USKA is once again aiming for a good ranking worldwide this year (best ranking so far: 17th place). Therefore, make as many radio contacts as possible with the HB9HQ station. The HB9HQ award, which will be presented in four classes, is once again up for grabs.

Versione italiana: Ripristino del server web e del servizio di posta elettronica a partire dal 26.5. English version: Restoration of web server and mail service as of 26.5. Restoration of web server and mail service as of 26.5. Web server The web server for uska.ch has been running stably since the migration last weekend. Unfortunately, some integrated sub-domains are not yet working (e.g. nmd.uska.ch). We will take care of it. Mail service I was able to set up around 1600 mail accounts manually on 25.5. Unfortunately manually, which is a very annoying and tiring job, but not everything can be automated. Among them are 360 real mailboxes (without forwarding). Of these 360, only 87 members have a valid e-mail address in Fairgate, of which 14 were invalid. These 73 mailbox holders were sent the password for their mailbox on Sunday evening. All others must contact us via self-service. This means that all existing mail forwarding to the old addresses has now been restored. If you would like to convert this mail forwarding into a normal mailbox, you can do so. In the next few days, a new support form will be available in the self-service area https://uska.ch/selfservice/, which will replace the old email request forms. As a result, you will receive a password and can then follow the instructions at https://uska.ch/mailadresse-einrichen-bei-hostpoint/ and set up forwarding and the mailbox as you wish. All normal mailboxes are also set up. Mails are received and saved. If you have such a mailbox, the procedure is as follows: You have received an email from us with the password. Then follow the instructions at https://uska.ch/mailadresse-einrichen-bei-hostpoint/ and you have the choice of connecting the mailbox locally on your computer with a mail program, using Hostpoint’s webmail access or setting up forwarding.

21. May 2024AllgemeinDeutsche Version: Ausfall Webserver und Mail-Service Stand 21.5.2024 Version française: Panne du serveur web et du service de messagerie Situation au 21.5.2024 Versione italiana: Interruzione del server web e del servizio di posta elettronica a partire dal 21 maggio 2024 English version: Web server and mail service outage as at 21.5.2024 Web server and mail service outage as at 21.5.2024 The odyssey with METANET has come to an end. We have now moved the uska.ch website to a new provider. This was a complicated undertaking, because the old provider METANET really never missed a chance to prove that it no longer had its situation under control. After we received a general block on our entire subscription for no plausible reason on Whit Sunday, we had to take the step of moving immediately after all. We actually wanted to do this calmly, but the total lockdown left us with no other option. Of course, this was always done in close consultation with the Board of Directors and the GPK. See: https://support.metanet.ch/statusMessage-499.html As we no longer even had access to our data and the support team was not impressed by deadlines, we first had to carry out a trial migration based on the last complete backup, which we download daily, before finally carrying out the final migration. As we work with our private upload rates, this takes a few hours with 16 GB of compressed data. As soon as this was done, even the domain transfer was tedious and slow (“within one working day” we received the transfer codes). Finally, we managed to make the website available again this afternoon, May 21, around 6 pm. The next steps are as follows: Access to the email inboxes is currently available somehow. These are still running at METANET. As long as they are running, we’ll come up with a clever strategy. However, it may well be that we have to make a hard cut and the contents of the mailboxes will expire. A migration of the mailboxes is hardly conceivable for us given the state of the provider METANET. The log server will also have to be migrated. However, this should not be a problem as soon as we can download the data. Here we have relied on METANET’s backup procedure. Still on METANET As a web editor, I have no intention of disparaging a service provider. However, since the beginning of the year, we have had to put up with a lot of tedious support emails, some of which were even outrageously worded. It was difficult to work constructively with this provider. However, since the blocking on Saturday/Sunday, the ignorant and brazen approach of METANET support, and METANET’s complete incompetence in getting their own servers under control, they have lost all goodwill with me. They even blocked us again today, even though the domain had already been moved and the web hosting was deactivated. In my opinion, this company is totally overwhelmed by the situation at the moment. What a shame for this former Swiss company. On behalf of the USKA, I would also like to thank the many offers of help, which I do not want to name here now, so that these people are not overwhelmed with requests 😉 Furthermore, of course, the webmaster HB9FEE and the board for their work over Pentecost.

Also this year we will organize a flea market with our own material. Of course, all visitors are welcome to bring and offer any material they no longer need (no table rental). We would appreciate a short message to hb9bla@gmail.com for planning purposes. But the most important thing is that we meet, because the future of the Birchhütte is up for discussion. A new building is planned and this iconic hut may disappear forever. We will be offering coffee and cake as well as cold drinks. We will also be firing up the barbecue where you can grill your own food. The Birch is easy to find: Simply enter HB9FS in Google Maps. It is located below the connecting road Füllinsdorf-Giebenach.

It allows the integration of third-party systems such as DXCluster, SOTA-Cluster and the querying of databases such as HamQTH.com or QRT.com. Using suitable software, exciting scenarios can be implemented that involve the use of multiple transceivers and that were previously unthinkable. Marc is an entrepreneur, software developer, trainer and former university lecturer. He has long been active in the open source scene, particularly in the BSD projects (OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD) as well as X.Org (freedesktop.org), PostgreSQL and Lua. His company micro systems also runs the website https://lua.org of the Lua project. Who for: Radio amateurs who want to control their system(s) remotely and possibly use them in multi-operator mode, as well as anyone who enjoys new approaches.

April 2024Allgemein / FT8Deutsche Version: MH370 – Suche wird möglicherweise mit Hilfe von WSPR fortgesetzt Version française: MH370 – Les recherches pourraient reprendre avec l’aide du WSPR Versione italiana: MH370 – Le ricerche potrebbero proseguire con l’aiuto del WSPR English version: MH370 – Search may continue with the help of WSPR MH370 – Search may continue with the help of WSPR The search for the missing aircraft of flight MH370 may be resumed. On March 8, 10 years ago, the Boeing 777-200ER disappeared from radar on its way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. There were 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board. The Australian TV program “60 Minutes Australia” now reports that the Malaysian government could renew its plans to search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane. Previously, the US technology company Ocean Infinity had proposed a “no find, no cost” search. Ocean Infinity plans to search the seabed again, extending the area of the first search from 2018.Compared to then, new clues have emerged that could actually lead to the crash site.Former US aeronautical engineer Richard Godfrey used historical WSPR signals from radio amateurs to reconstruct a possible flight route that deviated from the planned flight path and did not lead to China, but apparently into the Indian Ocean, where it came to a tragic end in the vastness of the sea.Godfrey has published his case studies on https://www.mh370search.com. 60 Minutes Australia quoted Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke as saying that he would first have to get permission from his government to resume the search. The TV format recently published an update on the search under the title “MH370 mystery continues: Will the doomed plane ever be found?” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5y4OqwBLzog. Two years ago, 60 Minutes Australia published the article “Finding MH370: New breakthrough could finally solve missing flight mystery” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq-d4Kl8Xh4 about Godfrey’s research into using WSPR. The core statements of the latter article (in German) are summarized and quoted in the article “Führen WSPR-Signale zur Absturzstelle von MH370?” in CQ DL 4/22, p. 49.
