==> + IARU NEWS: PETER LAKE, ZL2AZ, APPOINTED CHAIRMAN OF IARU REGION 3

The Directors in IARU Region 3 have voted to appoint Peter Lake,
ZL2AZ, of Wellington, New Zealand, as the Chairman of IARU Region 3. He
replaces Michael Owen, VK3KI, who passed away unexpectedly last month.
Owen, who was also President of the Wireless Institute of Australia,
had served as Region 3 Chairman since 2006. "I am extremely grateful to
my fellow Directors for their support in this difficult time, and for
the procedural work by [IARU Region 3] Secretary Ken Yamamoto, JA1CJP,
to formalize an appointment," Lake said in a statement. "I will do my
best to carry through all the work that we have in progress, much of it
due to items and ideas put in place by Michael. It is my privilege to
have the opportunity to serve you, the Member Societies and fellow
amateurs in Region 3." Read more here

==> + ARRL INVITES NOMINATIONS FOR 2012 INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN
AWARD

Nominations are open for the 2012 ARRL International Humanitarian
Award. This award is conferred upon an amateur or amateurs who
demonstrate devotion to human welfare, peace and international
understanding through Amateur Radio. The League established the annual
prize to recognize those radio amateurs who have used ham radio to
provide extraordinary service to others in times of crisis or disaster.
As one of the few telecommunication services that allow people
throughout the world from all walks of life to meet and talk with each
other, Amateur Radio spreads goodwill across political boundaries. The
ARRL International Humanitarian Award recognizes the Amateur Radio
Service's unique role in international communication and the assistance
amateurs regularly provide to people in need. Read more here
<http://www.arrl.org/news/arrl-invites-nominations-for-2012-international-humanitarian-award>;.

==> + CHECK OUT THE NOVEMBER ISSUE OF QST

Ever since the dawn of civilization, man has looked to the heavens and
pondered his existence. Thousands of years later, we still look to the
stars, but with radio, the stars seem a little closer. The November
issue of QST features a group of middle school students from Arizona
who reached for the stars with a high-altitude balloon launch and a QSO
with the International Space Station. Join them on their adventure as
you delve into the latest issue of QST.

Kaci Heins, KF7RCV, is a sixth grade teacher in Flagstaff, Arizona.
In addition to her teaching duties, she leads the Space Spartans, an
after-school science club. In her article "Reaching for the Stars with
Radio," Heins tells how she used Amateur Radio -- including a
high-altitude balloon launch with a repeater and a radio telescope
project -- to capture her students' imaginations, both in and out of
the classroom. Many states have laws against using cell phones in your
car, making it illegal to talk or text behind the wheel. But what about
using your mobile rig while driving? In his article "Distracted Driving
and Amateur Radio -- A Civil (Law) Perspective," ARRL Volunteer Counsel
John Swartz, WA9AQN, points out that operating mobile isn't just a
legislative issue.

Amateur Radio clubs are always looking for projects they can do
together. In his article "A Club Project -- Automatic Mobile Power
Control," Jim Cook, W8WKE, details a simple and inexpensive APRS group
project to give hams a way to experience the thrill of the workbench.
With the advent of computers with built-in sound cards, the digital
modes have gained popularity. Thomas W. Brooks, KE1R, has always been
fascinated -- and mystified -- by PSK31. In his article "PSK31 -- A
Different View," Brooks found a way to not only hear the PSK31 tones,
but to see them, too.

ARRL Contributing Editor H. Ward Silver, N0AX, takes a look at the
Array Solutions AIMuhf vector impedance analyzer in this month's
Product Review. He says this accessory "offers reflection and
impedance-only measurements for dedicated and popular measurement
functions. The host software creates easy-to-read displays and
easy-to-use pre-programmed functions." ARRL Test Engineer Bob Allison,
WB1GCM, checked out the DZKit HT-7 40 meter AM handheld transceiver,
saying that it "is a fully functional single channel, crystal
controlled 40 meter AM handheld transceiver kit that is fun to build
and fun to operate. Users must accept the challenges of making contacts
with low power and limited antennas while portable."

Of course, there are the usual columns you know and have come to expect
in the November QST: Happenings, Hints & Kinks, The Doctor is In, Short
Takes, Technical Correspondence, Vintage Radio, How's DX? and more,
including lots of new books and products. Look for your November issue
in your mailbox. QST is the official journal of the ARRL, the national
association for Amateur Radio. QST is just one of the many benefits of
ARRL membership. To join, or to renew your ARRL membership, please see
the ARRL web page <https://www.arrl.org/join-arrl-renew-membership/>;.

==> + SILENT KEY: GORAN SAVIC, YT2A, KILLED IN PLANE CRASH

While on a routine training mission, Serbian Air Force Major Goran
Savic, YT2A, was killed trying to direct his plane away from a
residential area in Nova Pazova, Serbia. According to Nova Pazova
Municipal President Dorde Radinovic, the plane crashed into the yard of
a private house. Due to Savic's skill in maneuvering the aircraft,
there were no casualties on the ground. "The aircraft went down between
two structures, Radinovic explained to B92
<http://www.b92.net/eng/news/society-article.php?yyyy=2012&mm=09&dd=26&nav_id=82361>;,
a Serbian news outlet. "One pilot ejected, while the other made an
effort until the last moment (before ejecting) not to hit a house in
this residential area. Once the plane stopped, there was no explosion
either." According to B92, Savic was found close to his plane and was
in serious condition when medical teams reached him. He later died at
the hospital. Savic's co-pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Tomislav Becagovic,
managed to jump out of the aircraft before impact and survived the
crash.

==> + PUBLIC SERVICE: THE WEATHER CHANNEL TO BEGIN NAMING WINTER STORMS

Beginning this winter, The Weather Channel will begin naming what it
calls "noteworthy winter storms." As The Weather Channel explained on
its website, "[a] storm with a name is easier to follow, which will
mean fewer surprises and more preparation. In addition to providing
information about significant winter storms by referring to them by
name, the name itself will make communication and information sharing
in the constantly expanding world of social media much easier." Unlike
the National Hurricane Center -- which has named tropical storms and
hurricanes since the 1940s -- the National Weather Service does not
name winter storms. Read more here

==> ARRL IN ACTION: WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO LATELY?

This feature is a concise monthly update of some of the things the
ARRL is doing on behalf of its members. This installment -- which
covers the month of September -- takes a look at how the ARRL is laying
the groundwork for its 100th birthday celebration, planning for the
2015 World Radiocommunication Conference, Section Manager training at
ARRL Headquarters, operations approved for DXCC credit, improvements to
W1AW, reports from the Official Observer Desk and more. Read more here
<http://www.arrl.org/news/arrl-in-action-what-have-we-been-up-to-lately-50>;.

==> + AT THE WORKBENCH: ATTENTION KIT BUILDERS -- THE ARRL WANTS TO
HEAR FROM YOU!

The ARRL wants to hear from kit builders about simple, useful,
educational and exciting kits. These kits should have a high
probability for success and would serve as stepping stones for more
advanced projects. We are looking all sorts of kits, but RF detector
kits that work in the 380 MHz-2.5 GHz range are of special interest.
The kits should also have a "Wow, I built this and it works!" factor.
If you know of such a kit, please let us know by filling out a simple
form here <http://www.arrl.org/technology>; by October 31.

==> SOLAR UPDATE

Tad Cook, K7RA, reports: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit the Earth
on September 30, causing a jump in geomagnetic indices. The planetary A
index on October 1 was 31, while the K index went as high as 7, making
aurora visible across the northern tier of the United States. The
far-northern latitude college A index was 23 (near Fairbanks, Alaska),
about the same as the mid-latitude index -- which was 21 -- in
Fredericksburg, Virginia. It is common during a geomagnetic disturbance
to see indices go much higher toward the poles than anywhere else. The
average daily sunspot numbers declined 8.3 points to 73, while the
average daily solar flux was off exactly 1 point to 128.7. The latest
prediction from NOAA/USAF has solar flux on October 4-7 at 110, 105 on
October 8, 100 on October 9-11, 115 on October 12-13, 120 on October
14, and then rising to a peak of 150 on October 20. The same forecast
has solar flux rebounding to 150 on November 16 after reaching a
minimum of 110 on November 4-5. The predicted planetary A index is 5 on
October 4-14, then 8, 12 and 10 on October 15-17, 5 on October 18-25,
10 on October 26, and then reaching a peak of 15 on October 29. Look
for more on the ARRL website on Friday, September 28. For more
information concerning radio propagation, visit the ARRL Technical
Information Service Propagation page
<http://www.arrl.org/propagation-of-rf-signals>;.

==> + ARRL RECOGNIZES: THOMAS SCHAEFER, NY4I, WINS SEPTEMBER QST COVER
PLAQUE AWARD

The winner of the August QST Cover Plaque award is Thomas Schaefer,
NY4I, for his article "Your Antenna is on Fire!" Congratulations
Thomas! The QST Cover Plaque Award -- given to the author or authors
of the best article in each issue -- is determined by a vote of ARRL
members on the QST Cover Plaque Poll web page
<http://www.arrl.org/cover-plaque-poll>;. Cast a ballot for your
favorite article in the October issue today.

==> MFJ CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY

In October 1972, Martin F. Jue, K5FLU, started MFJ in a hotel room
in Starkville, Mississippi. 40 years later, MFJ Enterprises
