Nu de putine ori sunt intrebat  "cu ce se ocupa radioamatorii...?"  sau " cum as putea sa devin si eu radioamator?" dar cea mai frecventa e "si ce castigi din asta...?". Daca la primele doua voi incerca sa dau un raspuns atat pentru cei care intreaba sau au intrebat cat si pentru cei care, eventual, vor sa devina radioamatori, la cea de-a treia inca incerc sa gasesc un raspuns.

Radioamatorismul este un hobby, o ocupatie de timp liber placuta (inainte de 89' i se spunea "sport  tehnico-aplicativ), care aduna sub cupola sa diverse persoane  de la varste incepand de la 6 ani si pana la 102 ani. De asemenea, radioamatorii au meserii din cele mai diferite, contrar ideii ca toti trebuie sa fi electronisti sau macar "buni in electronica". Totodata trebuie demontata ideea ca daca nu ai tinut un pistol de lipit in mana nu poti fi radioamator, chiar daca aceasta activitate este preponderent tehnica. E cat se poate de fals. Ca o confirmare a celor spuse va pot spune ca in randurile radioamatorilor veti gasi si reprezentante ale "sexului frumos", care se stie bine au inclinatie  mai mult spre partea artistica, estetica...

Deci, cu ce incepem ? Inceputul e bine sa-l faceti inscriindu-va la radioclubul din localitatea in care locuiti. De ce spun asta, pentru ca cel de-al doilea pas este obtinerea unei autorizatii de radioamator receptor emisa de Federatia Romana de Radioamatorism, fara examen, care se obtine mai usor prin intermediul radioclubului. Pentru cei ce nu stiu efectuarea de receptii radio in alte benzi decat cele publice este ilegala. Acest stagiu de radioamator receptor nu este obligatoriu dar consider eu, si nu numai, este necesar. In acest timp veti dobandi unele cunostinte si deprinderi care va vor folosi la obtinerea autorizatiei de radioamator de emisie-receptie. Cum spuneam mai sus din randurile radioamatorilor fac parte persoane avand diverse meserii, dar pentru a accede la autorizatia de radioamator de emisie-receptie toti vor trebui sa faca dovada prin examen, a unor cunostinte minime din: Electronica si radiotehnica, Protectia muncii, Proceduri si reguli de operare si Reglementari interne si internationale. Acest examen nu este greu deci nu trebuie sa va speriati, mai ales cei care au invatat capitolele de electricitate din manualul de Fizica din clasa a X-a.

Alfabetul fonetic international

Acest alfabet se foloseste in cazul comunicatiilor in fonie, atunci cand din diverse motive, QRM (interferente cu alte statii),  QRN (descarcari atmosferice, paraziti atmosferici), similaritate in pronuntie caracterele importante cum sunt cele din indicativ nu sunt inteligibile.

Sistemul RST de raportare a receptiei

In mod curent se foloseste sistemul de raportare a calitatii receptiei RST, pentru raportarea inteligibilitatii, puterii si tonului unei statii receptionate. Pentru legaturi in fonie sunt folositi doar parametrii R si S.

R - Readability (Inteligibilitate)

S -Strength (Putere)

T - Tone (Ton)

READABILITY ( Inteligibilitate )

1.    Neinteligibil

2.    La limita inteligibilului, se pot distinge ocazional cuvinte intregi

3.    Copiabil cu dificultate considerabila

4.    Copiabil practic fara dificultate

5.    Perfect inteligibil

SIGNAL STRENGTH ( Taria semnalului )

1.    Semnal extrem de slab, abia perceptibil

2.    Semnal foarte slab

3.    Semnal slab

4.    Semnal modest ca putere

5.    Semnal destul de bun

6.    Semnal bun

7.    Semnal aproape puternic

8.    Semnal puternic

9.    Semnal extrem de puternic

TONE ( Tonul ) - pentru Morse

1.    Brum pe frecventa industiala(50Hz); foarte puternic

2.    Brum clar si puternic

3.    Brum de tensiune redresata, nefiltrata

4.    Brum de tensiune redresata dar filtrata foarte putin.

5.    Sunetul este modulat de brum, putin muzical.

6.    Ton filtrat, putin modulat insa cu modulatie de riplu(tiuit usor)

7.    Ton aproape pur, cu putina modulatie de riplu

8.    Ton aproape perfect, modulatie aproape imperceptibila

9.    Ton perfect, muzical

 

 

CODUL Q

Codul Q este o colectie standardizata a unui cod format din trei litere, toate incepand cu litera "Q", initial dezvoltat pentru comunicatiile radiotelegrafice comerciale, mai tarziu adoptat de alte servicii, in special de radioamatori. Desi codul Q a fost creat cand radioul utiliza exclusiv codul Morse, acesta a continuat sa fie folosit si dupa introducerea comunicatiilor prin voce. Codul din intervalul QAA-QNZ este rezervat serviciului aeronautic, QAA-QOZ pentru serviciul maritim iar QRA-QUZ pentru celelalte servicii.

Where no DX traffic is involved, the contest segments should not include 3500-3510 kHz or 3775-3800 kHz.   Member societies will be permitted to set other (lower) limits for national contests (within these limits).

 

 

3510-3600 kHz may be used for unmanned ARDF beacons (CW ) (Davos 2005)

 

 

Member societies should approach their national telecommunication authorities and ask them not to allocate frequencies to other than amateur stations in the band segment that IARU has assigned to intercontinental long distance traffic.
