Status Report: The tyro Radio Parity Act of 2017
The tyro Radio Parity Act of 2017 - S. 1534 is alive, but with legislative action slowed to a glacial pace on Capitol Hill in recent months, there's been no true progress to report since this past summer. At present, the bill is under consideration by the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and it remains an energetic concern for ARRL. The League is working diligently to shudder the bill lax and crawl it forward.
While it may expose that time is short, S. 1534 does not requisite to pass the Senate by year's end. The bill remains in play until the current session of Congress adjourns, which doesn't betide until December 31, 2018. Once the bill has been passed by both chambers, the FCC would quiet maintain to implement its essence in the fraction 97 tyro Service rules.
Introduced on July 12, S. 1534 marked another step forward for the landmark legislation. Senators Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) sponsored the bill in the Senate. The US House version of the legislation, HR 555, passed the House of Representatives by unanimous consent ultimate January.
FCC Dismisses Radio Amateur's Petition to Revise call symptom Rules
The FCC has dismissed a rule-making petition filed ultimate May by Thomas J. Alessi, K1TA, of Stamford, Connecticut, that sought to amend the fraction 97 rules regarding tyro Radio Service call signs. The Commission action came in a November 28 note from Scot Stone, Deputy Chief of the FCC Wireless Telecommunications Bureau Mobility Division. Alessi had asked the FCC to obtain call signs consisting of one letter, followed by two digits, followed by one note (1 xx 1 format) available to tyro Extra-class licensees. Alessi asserted that the number of tyro Extra-class licensees who desire short call signs exceeds the available supply of 1 x 2 and 2 x 1 call signs, and that his arrangement would obtain available an additional 7,800 four-character call signs.
"Approximately fifteen million call signs are presently available in the sequential call symptom system, but it does not include every tyro call symptom that has been allocated to the United States," Stone wrote in denying Alessi's petition. He too pointed out that the FCC had rejected a similar suggestion in 2010 that would maintain made sure additional call signs, including 1 xx 1 call signs, available to tyro Extra-class licensees, but concluded at the time that enough call signs were already available for every tyro Radio licensee to obtain an acceptable call sign. In addition, the FCC said in 2010 that it had no plans to revisit the issue.
"You maintain not demonstrated any changed circumstances or other intuition that would warrant revisiting this decision," Stone's note concluded.

AO-91 Commissioned, Declared Open for tyro Use!
AMSAT-NA's latest tyro Radio CubeSat, RadFxSat (Fox-1B), now known as AO-91, has been opened for common use. AMSAT Engineering officially announced that AO-91 was ready for expend at 0650 UTC on Thanksgiving Day, November 23. AMSAT VP of Engineering, Jerry Buxton, N0JY, turned over operation to imprint Hammond, N8MH, and AMSAT Operations during a contact on the AO-91 repeater during the pass over the Eastern US, AMSAT said in a bulletin.
The latest CubeSat in the Fox train was launched on November 18 from Vandenberg Air compel groundwork in California. Telemetry is downlinked via the DUV sub-audible telemetry stream, which can be decoded using FoxTelem software.
A 1U CubeSat, RadFxSat (Fox-1B) is a joint mission of AMSAT and the Institute for Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE) at Vanderbilt University. AMSAT constructed the comfort of the satellite, including the spaceframe, on-board computer, and power system. The tyro Radio package is similar to that currently on orbit on AO-85, with an uplink on 435.250 MHz (67.0 Hz CTCSS) and a downlink on 145.960 MHz. -- Thanks to AMSAT advice Service
Amateur Radio-Carrying D-Star One CubeSat among Spacecraft Apparently Lost
The first tyro Radio satellite to employ the D-Star digital voice and data format -- D-Star One -- was among about 20 secondary payloads lost on November 28 after an otherwise nominal launch of a three-stage Soyuz 2.1 booster from the novel Vostochny Cosmodrome in the far reaches of eastern Russia.
The mission carried the Russian Meteor M2-1 satellite -- the primary payload -- as well as a Canadian Telestar experimental satellite, and 17 other secondary payloads, including D-Star One. According to reports, a fault occurred in the sophisticated and autonomous Fregat upper stage, which, after separating from the launch vehicle, inserts multiple spacecraft into their respective orbits. A so-called "space tug," Fregat has been in service for nearly 2 decades and has suffered three previous failures. Russian space agency Roscosmos is investigating the Fregat failure.
D-Star One, the first German commercial CubeSat, carried four communication modules, two designated for tyro Radio use.
D-Star One was developed by German Orbital Systems in cooperation with the Czech company iSky Technology as fraction of a arrangement to eventually assemble a low-Earth orbit communication network.
"Hopefully, we'll score another haphazard to utilize D-Star communications with a satellite repeater sometime in the future," Wayne Day, N5WD, commented on the AMSAT-BB.
The Fregat upper stage functions as an orbital vehicle in its own birthright to access a purview of orbital configurations through a train of "burns." Made up of six spherical tanks arrayed in a circle, Fregat is "independent from the lower three stages, having its own guidance, navigation, control, tracking, and telemetry systems," according to Gunter's Space Page.
The November 28 launch was only the second from the novel cosmodrome.
IARU Cites Progress Toward 50 MHz Region 1 Allocation
The International tyro Radio Union (IARU) says "significant progress" was made during World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) preparations that took region earlier this month at International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Headquarters in Geneva. But the IARU cautioned that a lot remains to be done before the "reservations and concerns of regulators and spectrum users are adequately satisfied."
For the team representing IARU in Working Party 5A (WP 5A) of ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R), the main focus was on the WRC-19 agenda detail that will consider an tyro Radio allocation in Region 1 from 50 to 54 MHz that is similar to the one available in Regions 2 and 3. The current, mainly secondary, allocation of 50-52 MHz in most European countries is a regional agreement. Delegates to the meeting considered input documents from IARU, France, the Russian Federation, and Switzerland. A scabrous consensus was achieved on the text that will provide the technical basis for discussions concerning the access to 50-54 MHz for the tyro Service in Region 1.
Other key issues affecting the tyro Service that remain to be addressed prior to WRC-19 include securing protection for tyro Service primary allocations at 24 GHz and 47 GHz and minimizing possible interference arising from Wireless Power Transmission (WPT) for the charging of electric vehicles.

JOTA "Alive and Doing Well," Although 2017 Participation Down from ultimate Year
Nearly 8,000 Scouts got on the air for the 60th Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) over the third weekend in October, National JOTA Coordinator Jim Wilson, K5ND, said. This week, Wilson released the 2017 JOTA report, which declared, "Radio Scouting and Jamboree on the Air are alive and doing well." Facilitating the October JOTA activity were more than 900 radio amateurs at 525 stations.
"Propagation wasn't their friend, but, even so, [radio amateurs in] almost 90 countries and grievous 50 states engaged in conversations with Scouts during the weekend," Wilson said. "In addition to HF, VHF, and UHF, many tyro Radio digital modes were in use, as well as online Jamboree on the Internet channels."
The tally for JOTA 2017 was 7,872 Scouts on the air, which, Wilson pointed out, was down from the 10,761 who took fraction in JOTA 2016, but more in line with 2015's participation. Reports were filed by 226 JOTA locations.
"The Boy Scouts of America National Radio Scouting Committee will be exploring several improvement projects for 2018," Wilson said. These would include establishing a JOTA Frequency job compel to explore updated frequency listing and operating recommendations, looking into novel ways to alert participants in true time about other JOTA stations that are on the air.
This adolescent Boy Scout got on the air at a JOTA station hosted by the Huntsville tyro Radio Club (K4BFT)
The Radio Scouting Committee's labor in 2017 resulted in the introduction of novel Radio Merit Badge requirements, which included a novel option for tyro Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) -- or "foxhunting." The panel too developed documents to wait on Scout leaders incorporate radio and JOTA in their unit activities.
Wilson pointed out that the K2BSA operation at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree in July introduced tyro Radio to nearly 2,500 Scouts, with 305 earning the Radio Merit Badge.
Year-Long NASA On The Air Event Kicks off on December 11
The tyro Radio clubs at National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) centers around the US maintain invited the tyro Radio community to combine the NASA On The Air (NOTA) special event.

In addition to being the agency's 60th anniversary, 2018 will imprint 50 years since NASA orbited the first human around the moon, and 20 years since the first elements of the International Space Station (ISS) were launched into low-Earth orbit.
The Marshall Space Flight Center's NN4SA is one of the NASA seat stations that will be energetic during NOTA.
Starting on Monday, December 11, 2017, tyro Radio club stations at various NASA centers and facilities will be on the air with special event operations to celebrate these monumental achievements, as well as current milestones. Some clubs will offer commemorative QSL cards, and a special certificate will be available indicating the number of NASA club stations worked on various bands and modes.
"We arrangement to maintain a web-based system for you to check your points total and download a printable certificate at the discontinue of the event in December 2018," the NASA announcement said. "Points will be awarded for each seat worked on each troop and mode (phone, CW, digital, and 'space' modes -- satellites, meteor scatter, EME, ISS APRS)." That would, of course, include contacts with any of the tyro Radio stations on the ISS.
Key anniversaries during NOTA include the 45th anniversary of Apollo 17 on December 11, 2017, which kicks off the event; NASA's founding on July 29, 1958; the 20th anniversary of the ISS first ingredient launch on November 20, 1998; the 20th anniversary of the ISS Node 1 Launch on December 4, 1998, and the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 -- launched on December 21, 1968, and returned on December 27 -- marking the discontinue of the event.

SKYWARNâ¢ Recognition Day (SRD) takes region on Saturday, December 2, from 0000 until 2400 UTC (starts on the evening of Friday, December 1, in US time zones). During the SKYWARN Special Event, operators at stations set up in National Weather Service (NWS) offices will contact radio amateurs around the world. Participating stations will exchange a brief description of their current weather with as many NWS-based stations as possible on 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, and 2 meters, plus 70 centimeters. Repeater contacts are permitted. SRD was developed jointly in 1999 by the NWS and ARRL to celebrate the contributions SKYWARN volunteers obtain to the NWS mission -- the protection of life and property.

Getting It Right
Ross Primrose, N4RP, took issue with their gauche and enigmatic wording of a sentence in the legend "International Grid Chase Will Allow expend of 630 and 2200 Meters" in the November 16 edition of The ARRL Letter. They should maintain said, "If UTC does not respond within 30 days or does not specifically contravene access, these stations may commence operation there."
The announcement for the 2017 ARRL 10 Meter Contest, as published in November 2017 QST (p. 94) contains incorrect information. Participants may pick to operate CW, Phone, or Mixed. Stations in the Mixed category may labor stations on both modes for contact credit -- i.e., once on CW, and once on phone.

More than 200 million cattle live and graze in Brazil, bringing US $123 billion into the country’s economy annually. However, 80 percent of novel deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon is caused by the conversion of forest to cattle pasture.
While international beef retailers maintain worked to decouple their markets from cattle-driven deforestation, a recent report shows that a lack of traceability and transparency of the cattle supply chain continues to thwart their efforts.
A major loophole: cattle are owned over their lifetimes by several ranches. But current policies only require slaughterhouses to assure that no deforestation occurred on the ranch from which the livestock was purchased. So ranchers who occasions illegal deforestation “launder” cattle, by selling them to ranchers who don’t.
Experts affirm that Brazil needs to adopt Uruguay’s digital traceability system whereby every cow is electronically tagged at birth and tracked along the entire supply chain. But they affirm Brazil lacks the political will to establish a similar system, primarily because the government is dominated by the agribusiness lobby.

Cattle ranching is the main driver of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, despite commitments by major producers and retailers to sever ties with harmful ranching practices, according to a report by Chain Reaction Research published in September.
Brazil today is home to over 200 million cattle – the world’s second largest herd after India – and its ranches contribute around R $500 billion (US $123 billion) to the country’s economy each year, representing 7 percent of Brazil’s GDP in 2016.
As a result, conversion to pastureland remains the main driver of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, and even transnational retailers that maintain made commitments to purge deforestation from their supply chains are exposed to deforestation risk, according to a report co-authored by researchers from the sustainability consultancy Aidenvironment, the non-profit organization Profundo, and the environmental policy consultancy Climate Advisers.
The joint research project looked in detail at the “link between the beef sector in Brazil and its role in deforestation on the one hand, and the top retailers as key sales channels for beef in Brazil on the other hand,” says co-author Barbara Kuepper, Senior Researcher in Sustainable Supply Chains at Profundo.
The team used data from a report published in 2017 by Brazilian NGO Imazon, the Institute of Man and the Environment of Amazonia, linking Amazonian deforestation to specific meatpackers, as well as publicly available monitoring data collected by Pará state, and other published data on cattle-driven deforestation in Brazil.

According to a recent report by Imazon, pastures occupy about 80 percent of the deforested locality converted to agricultural land in the Brazilian Amazon since 2014. The industry has too been linked to slavery, corruption, greenhouse gas emissions and towering water use. The novel report identified numerous connections between retailers and meatpackers that purchase cattle from Amazonian regions with towering deforestation risk, including JBS, Minerva Foods, Marfrig, Masterboi and Boi forte – the document directly linked JBS and Masterboi with recent deforestation in Pará.
Deforestation dropped dramatically in the Brazilian Amazon between 2006 and 2013, the result of willing agreements such as the Soy Moratorium (negotiated between commodities companies, environmental NGOs and the government).
However, since 2014, and especially after 2016 and the ascend of President Michel Temer, the administrative branch, legislative branch, and the nation’s supreme court, maintain increasingly moved to relax environmental laws including Brazil’s Forest Code, introducing an amnesty on illegal deforestation fines, and reducing funding to environmental agencies, causing deforestation rates to increase.
This “is a unsafe combination that [means] … cleared land is worth more than forested land and the risk of punishment for illegal clearing is low, while on the other hand economic incentives to protect forests are missing,” says Kuepper. A newly released analysis of satellite data by Imazon shows that Amazon deforestation is continuing to climb, with 545 square kilometers (210 square miles) of clearing in August alone.
This comes despite government efforts to decouple ranching and deforestation, initiated in 2009 by the Brazilian Federal Prosecutor’s Office through its federally enforced Terms of Adjustment of Conduct (TACs). By 2016, TACs had been signed by 63 of 128 energetic slaughterhouses that export Brazilian beef, with the firms agreeing to purge deforestation from their supply chains.

Three companies: JBS, Minerva and Marfrig, are answerable for 70 percent of cattle-slaughtering capacity in the Brazilian Amazon, the report finds, grievous of which maintain signed TACs. Mongabay reached out to these companies for remark but received no reply. The remaining one third of meatpacking for export is quiet is in the hands of companies lacking no-deforestation agreements.
“Retailers race a towering risk from sourcing from slaughterhouses that maintain not signed a TAC,” Kuepper says, potentially exposing themselves to abrupt fines and negative responses from investors and customers.
However, the participation or non-participation in TAC agreements does petite to curb deforestation by cattle producers. A stunning 8.3 million hectares (32,000 square miles) of forest clearing took region between 2010 and 2015 within the buying ranges of slaughterhouses were TAC signatories, the report finds. In fact, TAC slaughterhouses maintain been directly linked to illegal deforestation in Pará state.
A key deforestation loophole: a mandatory digital or paper Animal Transit sheperd (GTA) is retained at every ranch each time an animal is relocated. However, these records are not linked together, nor can they be easily tracked. As a result, cattle arriving at slaughterhouses typically only identify the ultimate ranch in an often-lengthy supply chain, unless each producer in the chain provides that slaughterhouse with an access code giving entry to the record. Ranchers operating on illegally deforested land simply “launder” their cattle by touching them to a ranch with a spotless deforestation record before final transport to the slaughterhouse.
“No meat processor or retailer is deforestation-free because the ones that maintain signed agreements maintain no full traceability system,” says Paulo Barreto, Imazon’s senior researcher in forestry engineering, who was not involved in the novel report.
Cattle expend as much as 75 percent of their lives on intermediate ranches not recorded on the final GTA, allowing deforestation-linked beef to easily enter the supply chain. “This confirms the urgency of creating [full] transparency and traceability,” says Kuepper.

The government has taken some actions to proximate the deforestation loophole: IBAMA, Brazil’s federal environmental agency, has published a list of embargoed ranches answerable for illegal deforestation, and slaughterhouses that buy from them are at risk of fines. Likewise, CAR, the Brazilian pastoral Environmental Registry, collects data on pastoral property boundaries and neighboring protected areas – data that IBAMA uses in combinations with satellite monitoring to detect illegal deforestation on ranches.
However, the majority of Brazilian states maintain failed to provide full CAR data to IBAMA – Pará is the only condition that publishes such data – making it difficult to detect lawbreakers.
Tracing individual cows from ranch to retailer would be the best option for eliminating deforestation-linked beef from the Brazilian supply chain, says Kuepper. “With enough willingness among supply chain players this would no doubt be possible,” she says, a step that would wait on assure retailer and customer loyalty.
Uruguay shows just what such a system could behold like. Following a devastating cattle foot and mouth outbreak in 2001, the country developed a digital traceability system, known as the National Livestock Information System (SNIG). Today, every cow raised in Uruguay is electronically tagged at birth and tracked along the entire length of the supply chain as fraction of a government-funded program.

The Brazilian Bovine and Bubaline Identification and Certification System (SISBOV), is an ear-tag based tracking system developed in 2002 in response to European Union exact for deforestation-free beef. But for most retailers, the incentives to combine the system just aren’t there, Barreto claims. That’s because exports are only a little fraction of the Brazilian Beef market – 81 percent of Brazilian beef is consumed in-country – so the SISBOV initiative currently includes just 0.5 percent of ranches.
“Brazilian ranchers will only [participate if a program is] mandated by [government] regulation or demanded by the market,” says Barreto.
“Political willingness remains one of the key stumbling blocks,” agrees Kuepper. Analysts affirm that the future of Brazilian environmental policy rests with newly elected president Jair Bolsonaro, whose ultra-right statements are often strongly anti-environmental and pro-agribusiness.
“The overall scenario is not good,” says Barreto.
Agricultural policy too continues to be heavily influenced by the bancada ruralista in the Congress, Kuepper says, noting that this legislative caucus “may score even more powerful after the October elections,” which “is worrying given their track record of pushing an agenda to weaken environmental laws.” President elect Bolsonaro has since formed an alliance with the ruralists.
Counter intuitively, an analysis by NGOs shows that with proper management, agribusiness production levels could be maintained and even increased without any novel Amazon deforestation. The novel report estimates that Brazilian pastureland is currently operating at just one-third of its potential capacity. Therefore, improving cattle ranch efficiency could mitigate pressure on primary forest.
Toward that end, earlier this year, Carrefour Brasil, a French transnational retailer announced that it was investing US $2 million in a joint initiative with the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) covering 156,000 hectares (602 square miles) in Mato Grosso condition to restore degraded pastureland, intensify ranching practices, and offer assistance to farmers to comply with Brazil’s Forest Code.
“Livestock productivity could spare land and extend production to supply growing exact for several years,” agrees Barreto. But to protect forests over the longer term as the global population soars toward nine billion people, “we requisite to consider a transition to eating less animal protein in common and especially beef.” With global beef consumption rising, especially in China, Japan and the comfort of Asia, that could be a tall order.
Update: This article has been updated to reflect the outcome of the Brazilian election and the announced replacement of Blairo Maggi as agriculture minister.
