BLACK FRIDAY DEALS
It’s that time of year again where we aren’t exactly sure why we’re celebrating Black Friday in South Africa but we’re definitely not complaining about all the deals!
Apparently it marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season in Europe and the USA, a sale of the year event!
We have SARL membership up for grabs for R99-00.
This is membership until 30 June 2018 the end of the SARL financial year.
For Friday only and only via an EFT payment. Forward your proof of payment of R99-00 with your callsign as reference to email@example.com
An excellent opportunity to join the SARL

ZD7VC TO RUN A 144 MHz BEACON ON ST. HELENA ISLAND – Bruce Salt, ZD7VC, is willing to operate an omnidirectional 144 MHz beacon on St. Helena Island. Pieter Jacobs, V51PJ, will supply the transmitter and antenna, and Marcos PY1MHZ in Brazil is constructing the keyer. Pieter needs some extra donations in the form of solar panels etc, and a donation towards airfreight costs. This will open up a new VHF world across the Atlantic for the West Coast and even inland. The first Airlink service from South Africa has just inaugurated the new airport built on top of a mountain sponsored by Britain. Please contact Pieter V51PJ for further information.
SDR Workshop in CT well attended - Following on the first SDR Conference hosted by CPUT in Belville, a second Workshop was arranged by AMSAT SA in conjunction with the SARL. This took place on Saturday the 4th of November this year, at the conference venue of the Oakdale Club in Bellville.
The general principles of SDR, spelled out at the first conference, was put into practice at this Workshop. Here participants were introduced to the set-up of the now very popular RTL-SDR dongle as a receiving module in conjunction with a PC. The required software packages for the manipulation of the received RF signals were supplied ready for use on a memory stick, and a step by step process were followed by Johan, ZS1RX and George, ZS1GFL, in explaining all that was necessary for the setup of the system. It did not take long before spectrum and waterfall displays appeared on the laptop screens.
As with our previous conference, radio amateurs active in the well-established small satellite space industry in the Western Cape, were also in attendance. This further strengthened our ties with the broader space community where communication by means of software systems are becoming the norm.

What to do if your licence has been cancelled - Your first action must be to contact ICASA to determine your exact situation. The SARL does not have this information. See ICASA contact details click here.
Before following up with ICASA please have the following information available: Licence number, Copy of your most recent licence received, Proof of payment of any payments made. If a cancellation is found to be as a result of an ICASA error - the licence will be re-instated.
However where this has been due to a payment oversight ICASA is taking a hard line and will require you to re-apply for a new licence. For more information on licensing and payment of licences click here to download a comprehensive doocument
