SAQ Alexanderson Alternator Transmission to Celebrate UN Day

17 October 2018

An Alexanderson alternator transmission from Sweden's Grimeton
Radio Station, SAQ, will be part of UN Day festivities on October
24 at the World Heritage Site in Grimeton, Sweden.

A "Peace Party" at the site will feature Irish folk music from
the Swedish band Green Hill. The music style honors the first
transatlantic telegraph cable between Ireland and Newfoundland,
which opened for telegram traffic in August 1866. "We celebrate
this great event in international relations by sending out a
peace message to the world with the long-wave transmitter SAQ,
and then a concert in the Irish folk spirit with the Varberg band
Green Hill," the announcement explained.

The SAQ CW transmission will be on 17.2 kHz and start at 16:30
UTC. A live video stream of the transmission will be available.
SAQ will accept listener reports via email. No QSLs will be
available.

From Radio Free Asia:

North Korean Crackdown on Cellphone Use Causes Spike in
Corruption

12 October 2018

Corruption in North Korea is on the rise as agents from the
Ministry of State Security more brazenly demand bribes to look
the other way when North Koreans make calls to their relatives in
South Korea on their mobile phones, North Korean sources told
RFA's Korean Service.

"Whenever we need to call our family in the South, we are under
the protection of a security agent," a source in North Hamgyong
Province said. "Callers have the security agent by their side to
secure personal safety," the source added.

"If you send money through a broker who knows these agents, you
can talk to relatives in the South without worrying about getting
busted," the source said. "Bribes range from 500 to 1000 yuan ($
U.S. 72 to 145, approx.) per call, which is quite expensive, and
their tyranny is getting worse as their demands for more money
are becoming more and more unreasonable."

"Everyone knows that they are taking bribes from the residents,"
the source said, "but nobody can do anything about it."

"So many people here are being exploited, but they think that it
is beneficial to pay these bribes to be on good terms with the
security agents."

Another source, also in North Hamgyong said "A few days ago I
asked my relative, a broker, to arrange a phone call with my
daughter in the South, and when I arrived at the place he told me
to go to, I had a really uneasy feeling when I found the agent
waiting there."

"I was unable to have a proper conversation because he was
standing right there next to me, and when the call was finished I
had to pay 700 yuan ($ U.S.100)," the source explained.

The source went on to explain that "With the government ramping
up the crackdown on illegal cellphone use, business is great for
the brokers."

However, increased business does not necessarily mean that the
process is easy. The source also explained, "these days, the
brokers are reluctant to offer their services to people unless
they know the person well. I am curious as to the reason for
this."

A change in procedure

The use of a broker to arrange a meeting with a security officer
to make an illegal call is a departure from how these types of
calls were made in the past, the source said.

"Back then, people only needed to bribe the agents if they got
caught, and the issue would be resolved right then and there. But
now if you get caught, you're immediately hauled away to the
Ministry of State Security," the source explained.

"Bribing security agents ahead of time through a broker is the
only way to evade the crackdown, and that's why people are forced
to choose this route."

Bribery for illegal activities is a necessary way of life for
government officials in North Korea, according to the website of
Liberty in North Korea (LiNK), a Long Beach, California and
Seoul, South Korea-based nonprofit established for the purpose of
helping North Korean refugees.

LiNK says that there is now an explosion of corruption because
the regime can no longer provide for the people, forcing them to
find alternate streams of income. As most of these are considered
illegal, it only increases the opportunity for officials to
extract bribes.

The fact that the officials themselves are also underpaid only
exacerbates the situation.

Whenever the government decides to crack down on a specific
illegal activity, it is common for corrupt officials to seek more
opportunities for bribes, or to demand more money from those
caught doing that activity.

For example, RFA reported in January 2016 that the North Korean
government issued a decree that increased punishments for those
caught watching "illegal video material." This had little effect
on curtailing the illegal activity, as the number of North
Koreans watching illegal videos actually increased.

But the decree was successful in filling the pockets of corrupt
officials, according to RFA sources.

From New Atlas:

Sandia Labs looks to the liquid hydrogen filling stations of the
future

David Szondy
15 October 2018

Hydrogen-powered vehicles are here, but we're still a long way
from having widespread infrastructure to support them. In
anticipation of the hydrogen economy of the future, Sandia
National Laboratories (SNL) is working on software models that
will help hydrogen refueling stations switch from hydrogen gas to
liquid hydrogen while implementing new, easier to follow safety
standards.

As an alternative to gasoline and diesel, hydrogen has a lot
going for it. It can not only be burned directly in properly
designed engines, but it can also power fuel cells for hybrid
vehicles. It's the most abundant element in the universe, leaves
behind only water as an emission, can be dispensed as fast as
conventional fuels and, with the right adjustments, can be
handled and transported like natural gas.

The problem is that hydrogen isn't a very dense fuel source
especially in a gaseous state and there are still very few
hydrogen filling stations, with most of those in the United
States concentrated in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
Worse, the current designs for stations allow for only one pump
and not much hydrogen stored on site.

With an increasing number of hydrogen cars expected to be built
in the near future to join the estimated 5,000 already on US
roads today, a more widespread and efficient hydrogen
infrastructure will be needed. To provide this, SNL and the
largest American hydrogen retailer, First Element, have entered
into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement to find
ways to better use liquid hydrogen, which is much denser than
hydrogen gas, so more can be stored in one place.

However, liquid hydrogen has to be kept at a temperature below
-253 C (-423 F) and that causes all sorts of headaches. Not the
least of these is that the current US National Fire Protection
Association safety codes are decades out of date when it comes to
handling liquid hydrogen.

Using a new software package, SNL is developing models to help it
better understand how liquid hydrogen behaves, especially in
cases of leaks. Unlike hydrogen gas, liquid hydrogen is so cold
that it freezes the air around it when it escapes, which means
it's hard to determine how a leak works, how much hydrogen is in
the air, and how far away from a leak the combustion sources are.
These are things that need to be solved before large numbers of
hydrogen fueling points are established in built up areas with
dense populations.

The new SNL models look at how hydrogen and oxygen interact in
gaseous and liquid states. Since oxygen has a much higher boiling
point, one element will warm as the other liquefies, and vice
versa, so the computer model assumes a zone of initial hydrogen
and air mixing that is far enough from the leak that the mixture
is warm enough to accurately model. This allowed the SNL team a
better understanding of how far from a leak will show a flammable
concentration.

According to SNL, this modeling will provide First Element with
an inexpensive scientific basis for designing and gaining local
permits for the 12 fueling stations the company is planning to
build in California. In addition, it will help in writing new
fire safety codes that are performance based rather than
prescriptive. That is, instead of laying out in painful detail
how to meet safety standards, the codes will determine what a
safe station will look like and it will be up to the supplier to
meet those requirements.

The claim is that this will make it easier to build more stations
in different states as well as encourage the wider application of
hydrogen as an energy source in both the domestic and industrial
spheres.

"Our mission has always been to foster the adoption of these
cars, ensuring better air quality and energy security," says Tim
Brown, COO of First Element Fuel. "That is the part of the
project that will live on beyond the particular stations we're
building right now."
