Agosto tempo di ferie per tutti, ma non per la nostra Associazione!!

Report del Presidente IK0XBX

Anche ad Agosto saremo sempre attivi con il corso per aspiranti OM e con il corso di CW che continueranno ad essere svolti on line come di consueto. Colgo l’occasione per ringraziare tutti i docenti per la disponibilità e la professionalità che mettono a disposizione dei partecipanti, mi complimento con gli allievi per la costanza e l’impegno che stanno mettendo nei rispettivi corsi.

I nostri volontari continueranno ad effettuare il servizio di Avvistamento Incendi Boschivi in collaborazione con l’Agenzia Forestale Umbria dalle nuove postazioni operative dal Lago Trasimeno (servizio “natante”) dal Monte Subasio e dal Monte Serrasanta coprendo un’ampia superficie;

Sabato 6 agosto molti di noi saranno sul monte Serrasanta per installare le antenne e le stazioni che poi utilizzeremo dalle 8.00 alle 16.00 locali di domenica 7 agosto nel Contest VHF Alpe Adria. Un ritorno della nostra Associazione in vetta al Serrasanta che ha consentito nei decenni passati molti successi  ai nostri soci sia in VHF che in frequenze superiori, non sarà un weekend di sola radio ma anche di grigliate in compagnia (abbiamo affittato l’Eremo di Serrasanta dotato di un ampio salone con cucina per “alimentare” la truppa), alcuni di noi si fermeranno a dormire in quota anche con le famiglie (so che ci sarà anche un telescopio per guardare le stelle), ancora siete in tempo, se volete partecipare all’evento (che ha il patrocinio del Comune di Gualdo Tadino), per comunicare a Sergio IZ0DXD i vostri dati per il pass che consentirà di salire con l’auto (o moto) e per comunicare l’eventuale presenza al pranzo di domenica. Durante la presenza del nostro gruppo al Serrasanta, al di fuori degli orari del contest, effettueremo anche delle prove di “copertura radio” per le quali è richiesta la collaborazione di quanti più soci possibili, una “mini prova di sintonia” come quelle che si fanno in Prefettura, queste prove saranno ripetute anche da altre postazioni per fare una mappa reale di quello che ci indicano i software di simulazione.

Nel week end del 3 e 4 settembre saremo, come di consueto, alla Trinità per partecipare sia al Field Day HF SSB (sembrerebbe che l’edizione CW l’abbia vinta IQ0PG/P) e il contest IARU VHF (magari con il nuovo setup che “battezzeremo” al Monte Serrasanta), anche per questo evento ci sono molti lavori da fare, contiamo di essere di nuovo attivi con due stazioni in HF e una (o magari due) in VHF, ci sarà il coinvolgimento di diverse istituzioni e gruppi di Protezione Civile in quanto andremo a fare di nuovo una prova che fornirà preziose informazioni alle autorità da utilizzare in eventuali emergenze.

Anche ad Agosto, periodo di ferie, saremo iperattivi, sempre sul pezzo, pronti a divertirci insieme e a crescere insieme!
