Da ARRL -

Solar physicist Leif Svalgaard of the W.W. Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory at Stanford University has predicted a maximum sunspot number of 128 ±10, slightly better than Solar Cycle 24.

“The overall average is 132 ±47 (median 124),” he said. “None of these numbers are substantially different, so one could perhaps just go with the ‘wisdom of the crowd.’ All predictions that we consider hav...

ULTIM'ORA

ARI Nazionale -


Nella giornata di sabato 3 ottobre sono purtroppo mancate 4 delle 12 stazioni marconiane originariamente previste, e precisamente: IY1SP, IY1MR, IY1SM e IY0CG.

Tale forfait è stato dovuto alle pessime condizioni meteorologiche, in Liguria vi era allerta rosso, e alle misure anti-Covid che hanno reso inaccessibili le strutture che normalmente vengono utilizzate dagli operatori delle stazioni aderenti al CSMI che, ricordiamo, trasmettono rigorosamente dai luoghi storici di Guglielmo Marconi. Di conseguenza, contrariamente a quanto riportato nel regolamento del Diploma, il numero di stazioni utili a conseguire i vari Certificati del Diploma "125 Anni dell'Invenzione della Radio" varia in questo modo:

ATTESTATO DI PARTECIPAZIONE: 2 diverse stazioni collegate

DIPLOMA: 4 diverse stazioni collegate

DIPLOMA HONOUR ROLL: tutte e 8 le stazioni collegate.

Ricordiamo che solo le stazioni marconiane aderenti al CSMI sono valide per questo Diploma

Radio Libera: Linux e la radio

ARI Nazionale -


In collaborazione con l’Associazione Radioamatori Italiani (ARI) del territorio, mercoledì 7 ottobre 2020, alle 21.15, la serata sarà volta a divulgare l’uso di Linux nel settore della sperimentazione radioamatoriale. Durante la serata vedremo quali sono i punti di contatti tra questi due mondi, quello degli smanettoni software e quello degli smanettoni hardware.

Come possiamo usare una SDR su Linux? Quali sono i vantaggi dei programmi open source nel mondo HAM? Dozzine di programmi si trovano su GitHub, come posso usarli? 

La serata, a carattere introduttivo, avrà poi lo scopo di unire le energie dei vari gruppi e avviare nuove sperimentazioni su packet radio AX.25 e webSDR.

La serata potrà essere seguita presso la nostra Officina Informatica Remota grazie ai mezzi liberi di teleconferenza messi a disposizione dal GARR e dal progetto iorestoacasa.work.

Prendiamo al volo l'occasione
di Vincenzo Favata, IT9IZY


Recessione prolungata, assenza di domanda, disoccupazione e l'arrivo di una nuova ondata pandemica, sono queste le principali paure dei manager globali alla ripresa delle attività dopo l'emergenza Covid questo è quanto emerge da un nuovo rapporto del World Economic Forum, che annualmente stila il Global Risk Report.

Per valutare l'impatto duraturo di Covid-19 sull'economia e, di conseguenza sulla nostra associazione, appare opportuno concentrarsi sulla capacità di ripartenza dei vari settori e la libertà di circolazione nazionale ed internazionale.

A poco più di un mese dalla riapertura, nella maggior parte dei mercati, i dati relativi alla spesa e agli spostamenti indicano una ripresa.
