Info:
This notice is in the Dutch language because this is only intended for the Dutch amateurs and is about PI2AHN the 70 cm repeater of the city Arnhem (Netherlands) and PI2NMG the 70 cm repeater of the city Nijmegen, are QRV again.



PI2ANH QRV:
Vanmiddag (zaterdag 19 december) kreeg ik via een WhatsApp bericht groot nieuws voor de regio Arnhem.

Nadat de Arnhemse 70 cm repeater PI2ANH in oktober was uitgeschakeld en de toenmalige beheerder bekend maakte dat de ATOF was terug gegeven aan het AT, vermoede men dat het tot in 2016 zou duren voor de repeater terug zou zijn.

Maar het ging toch sneller dan verwacht en de repeater is terug in de 70 cm band op de oude frequentie: 430.050 MHz RX 77 Hz CTCSS RX en TX.

De repeater, een Motorola apparaat, staat nu nog in de testfase bij een van de beheerders maar zal spoedig op de uiteindelijke locatie in Oosterbeek worden geplaatst.

De ATOF is nu in handen van de Stichting Telecom Techniek Arnhem.

Zie voor meer info: PI2ANH QRT

PI2NMG:
Maar er is meer nieuws, ook de Nijmeegse 70 cm repeater is terug!
Dat maakt weer een mooie regionale repeater dekking met de beide repeaters in Arnhem en Nijmegen.
De frequentie is: 430.3125 MHz en 77 Hz CTCSS TX en RX.

Gerbrandytoren
Info:
This notice is in the Dutch language because this is only intended for the Dutch amateurs.

Gerbrandytoren:
Alle amateur apparatuur, dus ook alle repeaters, moeten binnenkort uit de reportagecabine die zich op een hoogte van 220m in de Gerbrandytoren bevindt, worden verwijderd!
Het heeft te maken met nieuwe veiligheidsaspecten die voor de toren gelden.

Hamnieuws:
Dat dit voor de beheerders van de diverse repeaters hard aankomt en natuurlijk ook voor de gebruikers stevige consequenties heeft, lijkt me duidelijk.
Aan een oplossing wordt gewerkt!
Lees alle ins en outs op o.a. Hamnieuws,
zie: Repeaters weg uit cabine Gerbrandytoren en Hobbyscoop zie: Persbericht: Zendamateur activiteiten op de Gerbrandytoren in IJsselstein en P I 3 U T R

U P D A T E:
13 december 2015 - Zondagavond na 20:00 uur is men begonnen alle repeater systemen uit te schakelen, maar...
Voor alles uitging was er een levendig verkeer op PI3UTR met als soort van ronde leider Rob PD4ROB die dat uitstekend deed!
Daarna werd uitleg gegeven van wat er daar boven allemaal aan apparatuur staat en wat de functie is.
Dat was via Live beelden te zien op de ATV-repeater PI6ATV of via de stream op de Hamnieuws website en zéér interessant.
Uiteindelijk gingen de knoppen om en viel ook PI3UTR stil...

Nu maar hopen dat het niet al te lang duurt voor de eerste repeaters weer in de lucht komen.
Succes heren beheerders en medewerkers met de verhuizing en de herbouw van alle apparatuur!

  • November 28: Now I was not actually going to pay attention to the Baofeng UV-5 series, because new versions come out regularly, even under other brand names. But I'm going to make an exception for the new Baofeng UV-5X.
    This UV 5X looks different than the UV-5 series and according to Baofeng, is upgraded with a better front end, squelch level, and better RX / TX audio. Furthermore, the UV 5X is according to Baofeng waterproof and dustproof, so outside use even in the rain seems to be no problem. The question is which antenna is supplied with this radio. If that's the standard UV-5 antenna, then that's not a good idea considering the low quality of this antenna.

    The Baofeng UV-5 serie: UV-5R, UV-5RA, UV-5RA-PLUS, UV-5RB, UV-5RC, UV-5RD, UV-5RE, UV-5RE PLUS, UV-5RG, UV-5RQ, UV-5RT, UV-5RU, UV-5S and now new the UV-5X.

  • November 27: It seems that there is now a Baofeng website in the Netherlands.
    To what extent this is also an official website, so with permission of Baofeng, is not clear to me. This is because there is a second website listed on the Dutch Baofeng website called HAMRadioshack and it has the same mailing address as the Dutch Baofeng website.

  • November 1: For users of the 4 meter band some interesting news.
    Wouxun and TYT will be offering a version of their quadbander mobile radios which will include 70MHz or 4 meter band. More info on: AmateurRadio.com and Martin Lynch & Sons

  • October 10: There are a number of new products, but they are mostly variants of existing radios, especially of the Baofeng UV5R.
    New is the dual band Vero Telecom VR-6600PRO and Hans PD0AC writes a comprehensive review on the radio soon.

PI2ANH QRT
Info:
This notice is in the Dutch language because this is only intended for the Dutch amateurs and is about a local repeater on the 70 cm band.

PI2ANH:
Vandaag 5 oktober bleek dat de lokale Arnhemse 70 cm repeater PI2ANH op 430.050 MHz niet meer te werken.
Na een twitter bericht naar PI3NYM (de beheerder?) kwam het twitter bericht dat ANH QRT is.
Zie het twitter bericht:



De enige reden die ik kan bedenken is dat het te maken heeft met de locatie waar de repeater stond. Dat was in Nijmegen terwijl de repeater eigenlijk in Arnhem hoort en de vergunning door het AT waarschijnlijk voor Arnhem is afgegeven.

Jammer is het wel, er is nu geen lokale 70 cm repeater meer in de regio...

UPDATE:
20 Oktober: Zojuist was er een nieuw Twitter bericht te lezen van PI3NYM betreffende de Arnhemse repeater PI2ANH.



Verder is er een artikel te kezen op Hamnieuws.nl met commentaar van verschillende amateurs, inclusief de beheerder van PI2ANH.
Komt daarmee de Arnhemse 70 cm repeater t.z.t. nog terug?
Afwachten maar...

FT897 Noise Blanker
Noise Blanker:
The noise blanker of my Yaesu FT-897 works reasonably well.
Until recently, I did not suffer from rattling noises and other interferences, for example from a switching power supply or PLC (BPL), unfortunately that's different now.
The problem occurs mostly in the 40 meter band, but thanks to the noise blanker I can still work on the 40 meter band.

Silent Key:
Helaas moet ik u melden dat de Voorzitter van de afdeling Arnhem van de Veron,
Frans PA3BPT zondag 5 april is overleden.
Daarmee is een prettig mens en een zeer kundige technicus en amateur van ons heen gegaan.
Hij was altijd in voor bijzondere projecten die overigens niet altijd iets met de radio hobby te maken hadden, zoals zijn decimale klok.
Zie hiervoor: Decimale klok door PA3BPT.

Persoonlijk zal ik Frans missen om zijn goede raadgevingen, zijn technische verhalen en de aanwezigheid in de lokale radio rondes.

We wensen zijn vrouw, kinderen en kleinkinderen, verdere familie en vrienden heel veel sterkte en kracht toe om dit verlies te kunnen verdragen.
Frans is in besloten familie kring herdacht.

Quad Band Radio
Recent HM9900:
The Dutch "Communicationworld" radio shop has announced a quad band transceiver from the brand "Recent".
It's the "Recent" HM-9900 with the 29, 50, 144 and 430 MHz bands and FM modulation.
Communicationworld shop thinks that the price of this transceiver will be approximately between 255 Euro and 285 Euro.


Source photo: Facebook page of Communicationworld.nl

However:
It seems very likely that this "Recent" HM-9900 is a re-branded TYT TH-9800.
I can not say that for sure of course, but if you look at the photo of the TYT (down here) and compares the inscriptions on the buttons (I did that with larger pictures), the conclusion is obvious.
