Un radioaficionat dels Estats Units dóna suport a incloure Catalunya a la llista de països del DXCC

El radioaficionat de Texas K5EMG, dóna suport a la inclusió de Catalunya a la llista de països del diploma DXCC, gestionat per l’American Radio Relay League (ARRL), segons ha publicat en un fòrum d’un conegut cercador de ràdio.

Si Escòcia, Gal·les i altres territoris són entitats independents del diploma DXCC, no entenc perquè Catalunya no pot ser una entitat independent. Així que voto SÍ!

Radio amateurs sign petition to add Catalonia to DXCC

EA3FHP reports a petition on Change.org calling on the ARRL to add Catalonia to the list of DXCC entities reached 1,745 signatories on Sunday, December 29.

Catalonia (Catalunya) has a level of autonomy far in excess of that enjoyed by Wales when it was added to the DXCC list. Catalonia, population 7.5 million, consists of four provinces: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, and Tarragona. The capital and largest city is Barcelona with a population of 1.6 million.

1,745 radio amateurs have already signed the petition to the ARRL to include Catalonia in the DXCC countries list

Today, 1,745 signatures have been reached from the radio amateurs asking the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) to add Catalonia in the DXCC countries list. To achieve the goal, we must continue to increase the number of requests. Those who haven’t signed can do it here: Sign the petition.

The main purpose of amateur radio is, among others, to contact every country in the world through the radio, establishing a competition among all, get diplomas, trophies and included in a global ranking of worked countries. When we talk about countries, we do not mean the list of the 193 states members of United Nations, is a list created by radio amateur matches and no official statements. These “radio-countries” are called DXCC entities.

The DXCC entities are part of a list drawn up by the DX Century Club and belongs to the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). The ARRL is the national association for amateur radio in the United States and is the one who drafted the specifications of this diploma. In the present case, the ARRL decided at the time, in 1945, to create a broader list of countries to make the competition more attractive and interesting. It is for this reason that radio amateurs are governed by a list of 340 countries (DXCC entities) and not the 193 official states.

The criteria for admitting a country in the DXCC list are geographical but also political and ideological, although many amateurs always say that this group does not enter into political issues, arguing that it is not legal, which is totally false. In general, the islands are always different countries but belonging to the same state. An example: Balearic Islands, Ceuta and Melilla and Canary Islands are three different countries but all belong to Spain. Scotland, England, Wales, Man, Northern Ireland and Jersey are six different countries but all belong to the United Kingdom.

Therefore, if Scotland is a DXCC entity, why not Catalonia? Seeing the example of Scotland, Catalonia has the perfect conditions, according to the rules of the ARRL, to become a DXCC entity today. We must continue demanding to the ARRL, including Catalonia in the DXCC countries list. The American Radio Relay League must add Catalonia to the DXCC countries list. Catalonia is a nation of Europe with more of 1,000 years of history.

1.735 radioaficionats ja han signat la petició a l’ARRL per a incloure Catalunya a la llista de països del DXCC

Avui, dia de Nadal, s’ha arribat a la xifra de 1.735 signatures, tant de radioaficionats com d’altres persones, demanant a l’American Radio Relay League (ARRL) que afegeixi Catalunya a la llista de països del diploma DXCC.

Per a aconseguir l’objectiu, hem de continuar augmentant el nombre de peticions. Els que no hagin signat ho poden fer aquí.
American Radio Relay League (ARRL), add Catalonia in the DXCC countries/entities list.

Demà dia de Nadal l’estat espanyol tornarà a rastrejar els telèfons mòbils

Demà 25 de desembre de 2019, l’INE tornarà a rastrejar els telèfons mòbils de tot l’Estat. Per tant, el govern espanyol sabrà on som en tot moment, de dia i de nit. Si el dispositiu està desconnectat, no es podrà fer el seguiment dels nostres moviments.

Hauríem d’estar preocupats per aquest seguiment que vulnera la nostra privadesa i l’opció més segura per a no participar-hi és tenir apagat el telèfon mòbil durant tot el dia de Nadal, és a dir, 24 hores sense interrupció.

APRSdroid, l’app per a connectar-se a la xarxa APRS

APRSdroid és una aplicació d’Android per a radioaficionats. Permet enviar la ubicació exacta i intercanviar missatges mitjançant la xarxa APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System). Es mostren a sobre d’un mapa totes les estacions de radioaficionat des de la ubicació en la qual estan emetent. Per accedir-hi, es necessita una contrasenya que es pot aconseguir aquí.

The Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) is used by the radio amateurs to transmit real-time position information, weather data, telemetry and messages over the radio. A vehicle equipped with a GPS receiver, a VHF transmitter or HF transceiver and a small computer device, called a tracker, transmits it’s location, speed and course in a small data packet, which is then received by a nearby iGate receiving site which forwards the packet on the Internet. Systems connected to the Internet can send information on the APRS-IS without a radio transmitter, or collect and display information transmitted anywhere in the world.
