Benvenuti nel mio sito

GRAZIE PER AVER VISITATO IL MIO SITO,

UN SITO PRETTAMENTE IMPOSTATO  PER IL NOSTRO HOBBY-ATTIVITA',

SONO RADIOAMATORE DAL 1995, PREDILIGO  SOPRATTUTTO LE BANDE HF,  USANDO LA TELEGRAFIA COME MODO DI TRASMISSIONE,

E DI TANTO IN TANTO USO I MODI DIGITALI (RTTY).

IN PASSATO HO AVUTO  ALTRI 2 NOMINATIVI : PRECEDENTEMENTE A QUEST'ULTIMO  AVEVO IL C/S IX1CKE E ANCOR PRIMA IK7TIV.

IN VHF FACCIO ATTIVITA' DA SALOTTO LOCALE, MA MI APPASSIONA COMUNQUE I CONTATTI CON LA  STAZIONE INTERNAZIONALE SPAZIALE,

CHE HO COLLEGO DIVERSE VOLTE IN PACKET  E UN PAIO DI VOLTE IN FONIA.

 

THANKS WATCHING MY WEB SITE,

IT'S  A SITE CONCERNING OUR  HOBBY,ACTIVITY,

I'M AMATEURRADIO SINCE 1995, HF BANDS ARE MY FAVOURITE,USING RADIOTELEGRAPHY TRANSMISSION MODE,

SOMETIMES I USE DIGITAL MODES (RTTY).

IN PAST TIME I HAD OTHER 2 CALLS:BEFORE THIS ONE I HAD C/S IX1CKE AGAIN BEFORE IK7TIV.

ON VHF IS FOCUSED ON LOCAL ACTIVITY, BUT,ANYWAY, I LOVE TO CONTACT INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION,

WHICH I CONTACTS MENY TIMES ON PACKET AND A COUPLE OF TIME  BY VOICE.

The Earth's magnetic field is continuously monitored by a network of magnetometers. These readings are converted into the A and K index values.

The K index is computed once every three hours (eight times a day) and the values can range from 0 to 9, with 0 being inactive, and 9 representing an extreme severe storm condition. The values are quadi-logarithmic.

    * K = 0 Inactive
    * K = 1 Very quiet
    * K = 2 Quiet
    * K = 3 Unsettled
    * K = 4 Active
    * K = 5 Minor storm
    * K = 6 Major storm
    * K = 7 Severe storm
    * K = 8 Very severe storm
    * K = 9 Extremely severe storm 

The A index is linear, and is computed from the eight previous K index values. It ranges from 0 (quiet) to 400 (severe storm).

    * A = 0 - 7 Quiet
    * A = 8 - 15 Unsettled
    * A = 16 - 29 Active
    * A = 30 - 49 Minor storm
    * A = 50 - 99 Major storm
    * A = 100 - 400 Severe storm 

Generally, propagation conditions are best when the A index is 15 or lower, and the K index is 3 or lower.
