2016 ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS TEST

ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS TEST (14 MAY 2016)

The Army, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard are sponsoring the annual military/amateur radio communications tests in celebration of the 66th Anniversary of Armed Forces Day (AFD).

The AFD Military/Amateur Crossband Communications Test is conducted 14 May 2016. The annual celebration is a unique opportunity to test two way communications between Amateurs and military communicators authorized in 47 CFR 97.111, and features traditional military to amateur cross band SSB voice, Morse Code, practice using legacy interoperability waveforms, as well as an opportunity for Amateurs to utilize more modern military communications modes such as MIL-STD Serial PSK and Automatic Link Establishment (ALE). New for Armed Forces Day this year, military stations and amateur radio operators are authorized to directly communicate on the 60 Meter interoperability channels.

These tests give Amateur Radio operators and Short Wave Listeners (SWL) an opportunity and a challenge to demonstrate their individual technical skills, and to receive recognition from the appropriate military radio station for their proven expertise. QSL cards will be provided to those stations making contact with the military stations.

Talk with Dr. Bob Heil

January 11, 2016 the Seneca Radio Club will have a visit by Dr. Bob Heil via Skype.
We will be meeting in the training room at the Seneca County Public Safety Building.
The time will be 7:00 PM.
First licensed in 1956, Amateur Radio has been the foundation of my careers in the sound reinforcement industry as well as bringing high quality, articulate audio to Amateur Radio. Entering this great hobby during the best sun spot cycle helped me to focus on designing and building one of the first VHF SSB KW stations. Throughout the years, I have enjoyed designing many antennas, from the 128 element two meter ”J’ Beam array in 1960 to the latest – phased arrays on 40 and 75 meters. I enjoy all of the bands from 160 meters through two meters working my many friends and especially newcomers to this great hobby. see more
Come on out and join us at this fun event and bring your questions for Bob.
