I segreti di Inmarsat con una chiavetta SDR

Nel fantastico mondo della radiopassione ci sono bravi ascoltatori e operatori, geniali autocostruttori di circuiti e apparati e teorici e divulgatori altrettanto abili. Stranamente però è abbastanza raro trovare queste tre qualità radiantistiche riunite in una sola
persona. Aldo Moroni è uno di questi personaggi e anche se lui non ama sentirselo dire, io non finirò mai di stupirmi della sua capacità di applicare le proprie doti (che includono la più rara di tutte, l'umiltà) a una vasta quantità di aspetti tecnici e pratici
della radiofonia hobbystica, riuscendo ogni volta a trovare una chiave interpretativa personale ma utilissima a tutti noi appassionati.
I suoi ultimi esperimenti ricadono nel complicato dominio "satcom", le comunicazioni da e verso i satelliti. In particolare Aldo si è dedicato a uno dei transponder Inmarsat utilizzati a supporto del traffico aereo civile, su una frequenza intorno agli 1,5 GHz. Le
sue osservazioni offrono anche l'opportunità di tornare a fare il punto sulle novità che riguardano il software defined radio, in particolare quello dei ricevitori compatti e wide-band, tipicamente concentrati nella cal kaei "dongle" O hVHF e nella variante costituit
a da apparati che senza essere propriamente delle "pennette o chiavette" sono comunque alloggiati in contenitori che stanno tranquillamente sul palmo della mano. In questo caso le prove effettuate da Aldo consentono di fare qualche significativo confronto tra dongle
SDR che utilizzano le quattro tipologie di tuner digitali più diffusi, l'E4000 utilizzato qui da una chiavetta DVB-T e dal dongle specializzato FunCube Pro e le due versioni R820T e 820T2 di Rafael Micro (http://www.rafaelmicro.com/). All'appello mancherebbe una
terza tipologia di tuner, progettato da Mirics (http://www.mirics.com/node/4), oggi presente all'interno di almeno due ricevitori SDR wide band, il FunCube Pro+ (la pennetta-scanner colegata all'iniziativa CubeSat dei radioamatori satellitari britannici) e il più
recente SDRPlay (http://www.sdrplay.com/), altro prodotto dell'estro ingegneristico inglese che insieme al FunCube Pro di ultima generazione sfrutta le notevoli capacità del tuner multistandard MSi001. Un dispositivo non utilizzato da Aldo ma di grande successo, il
ricevitore SDR AirSpy (http://airspy.com/ che oggi, con una spesa contenuta, può essere equipaggiato con un up-converter, SpyVerter, in grado di estendere verso il basso fino alla soglia dei 100 kHz, la copertura di oggetti normalmente pensati per coprire solo gli
ultimi MHz della banda HF), si basa in realtà sul tuner R820T2, quindi è assimilabile - se si esclude per il software di demodulazione - a quello qui testato.
Nel documento PDF (http://www.iw2dzx.it/INMARSAT/Inmarsat.pdf) messo a disposizione dei suoi colleghi, Aldo presenta le misure ottenute, con i diversi dispositivi messi alla prova, nel corso della ricezione del servizio Inmarsat Aero I (http://www.inmarsat.com/wp-con
tent/uploads/2013/10/Inmarsat_Classic_Aeronautical_Services.pdf
) attivo a 1.545 MHz. Per il suo esperimento Aldo si è ispirato alle spiegazioni fornite nel tutorial realizzato da RTL-SDR.com (http://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-tutorial-decoding-inmarsat-std-c-egc-message
s/
) a sua volta basato sulle dettagliate istruzioni per la ricezione dei satelliti alle frequenze L-band fornite da UHF-satcom (http://www.uhf-satcom.com/lband/). Il manuale del portale delle chiavette SDR parte in realtà dalla ricezione dei servizi per la navigazion
e marittima di Inmarsat-C (in particolare i messaggi della EGC SafetyNet http://www.inmarsat.com/services/safety/inmarsat-c/), ma a parte il software di decodifica utilizzato - il nuovo arrivato JAERO (http://jontio.zapto.org/), sviluppato dal neozelandese Jonti Olds
- gli accessori al contorno sono gli stessi. Riuscire a sintonizzarsi sulle frequenze Inmarsat non è banale e richiede almeno un amplificatore "low noise" per impianti satellitari domestici. È consigliata una antenna ad alto guadagno, che Aldo ha realizzato seguendo
un altro tutorial di RTL-SDR che riporta il video di Adam Alicajic 9A4QV (http://lna4all.blogspot.com/) per illustrare il funzionamento di una antenna "patch", composta sostanzialmente da due lamine metalliche quadrangolari. Nelle zone in cui le emittenti FM locali
disturbano molto è opportuno utilizzare anche un filtro notch che attenui l'intera banda 88-108 che rischia di saturare il ricevitore SDR. L'antenna patch è sicuramente utile ma lo stesso Aldo ha concluso positivamente alcune prove di ricezione effettuate collegando
all'amplificatore LNA una semplice stilo e utilizzando un foglio di carta stagnola come parabola riflettente.
Adesso vi lascio alla lettura del report di Aldo Moroni, ma in un prossimo post cercherò di fare il punto sulle ultime evoluzioni delle piattaforme software cresciute intorno ai ricevitori SDR perché soprattutto dopo l'arrivo di AirSpy e SDRPlay si stanno moltiplican
do le possibilità di fare del monitoraggio serio in ambienti Windows, Linux e OSX. Per le sue prove Aldo ha lavorato in Windows con programmi come HDSDR e la console SDR-radio (http://sdr-radio.com/) di Simon Brown.

Latest Shortwave News:

Voice of Turkey and Turkish coup attempt

The attempted military coup d'etat in Turkey on the 15th and 16th of
July lead to an increased interest in Voice of Turkey’s shortwave
broadcasts and any reactions or changes to the VoT broadcast as parent
company TRT’s TV broadcasts were taken off the air by the coup
plotters.

Voice of Turkey broadcast in English at 2200 to 2300 on 9830kHz was
recorded earlier which is normal practice from VoT for all broadcasts
after 1830 and therefore had no mention of the attempted coup instead
focusing on the reactions to the terrorist attacks in Nice. At the same
time Voice of Greece on 9935kHz had been broadcasting non-stop news
about the crisis in its neighbouring country. BBC World Service also had
rolling news about the events in Turkey on several frequencies aimed at
Asia.

The first indications changes to normal programming was on the 0000UTC
broadcast in Turkish to East Asia on 9735 which broadcast audio from a
chaotic sounding street with the sound of shouting, screaming and
gunfire heard in the background. Sometimes this sounded like a
discussion between presenters and guests but sometimes it sound like a
microphone that had just been left open.

The 9870khz 0100 Spanish broadcast seemed to be another recorded
programme from the day before. According to monitoring reports via DXLD,
French programming at 0500 was missing from shortwave.

On Saturday the English language programme devoted the entire news
section of the broadcast to news of the coup including reactions from
the Turkish president, prime minister and parliament. However the rest
of the programme did continue as normal.

Some recordings of the first English programme after the coup attempt is
expected to be added to http://shortwavearchive.com/
in the coming days.
 

 


Shiokaze Seabreeze on Medium Wave

DigiDX reported at the start of June on tests from Babcock on 1431kHz
broadcast from the Choybalsan transmitter in Mongolia. It was speculated
that this test was for the BBC who are soon to launch a radio service in
Korean to North Korea however from 1430 to 1500 each day the Japanese
clandestine station Shiokaze Seabreeze will use this frequency.

This suggests the tests were actually for the Japanese station which
uses Babcock for other frequency brokering and not the BBC.

Shiokaze Seabreeze is a station aimed at Japanese people who were
abducted by North Korea in the period of 1977-1983. The number of
victims is officially recognised by the Japanese government to be 19 but
it is possible there may be hundreds of victims.
 

 


Unidentified African station on 7750kHz

Since the 26th June there have been reports of a new unidentified
African station broadcasting on 7750kHz in upper sideband mode. The
station has been heard in Central and Northern Europe around
1700-1930UTC.

Between 1800-1830 the broadcast relays the BBC Somali broadcast which
suggests that the station is from or is targeted at Somalia or one of
the breakaway countries in the Horn of Africa. Because of the BBC relay
the station is likely to be related to one of these governments rather
than being militant-controlled ( e.g. Al Shabab or Al Qaeda).

Clandestine Radio Adal launches on shortwave

A new clandestine targeted at Eritrea called Radio Adal has started on
shortwave since the 13th of July on 15205kHz at 1500UTC on Wednesdays
and Saturdays only.

The first 30 minutes of the programme is Arabic while the 2nd half is in
the Tigrinya language. The broadcast transmitted at 100kW and is
possibly from the Nauen transmitter in Germany.

The Adal Sultanate or Kingdom of Adal was a medieval Muslim state
located in present day Eritrea.

https://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations

You should always specify the encoding used for an HTML or XML page. If you don't, you risk that characters in your content are incorrectly interpreted. This is not just an issue of human readability, increasingly machines need to understand your data too. A character encoding declaration is also needed to process non-ASCII characters entered by the user in forms, in URLs generated by scripts, and so forth. This article describes how to do this for an HTML file.

<meta charset="utf-8"/>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>

Now follows the the e-QSL card as a MFSK32 image.


Sending Pic:299x171;





Thanks for all the emails and reception reports received for episode 20
of DigiDX. On the SVG file, Richard Langley in Canada has commented:

"...a couple of errors in the HTML code during the first replay of the
audio resulted in an incomplete QSL image: the SVG graphic of the DigiDX
logo did not appear in the browser -- just the symbol for a broken or
non-existent image -- although the rest of the image was o.k. I did have
to change the encoding used in the browser from Western (Windows-1252)
to Unicode (UTF-8) to get the accented characters in the listeners'
names to display correctly, though.
Setting it to "Auto Detect" also
produced the correct rendering.

It was not obvious what the errors were in the SVG part of the code or
how to manually correct them. But I replayed the audio a second time
without changing any settings in Fldigi and this time the HTML coding
was error-free and the image displayed correctly (see attached screen
grab). It seems this way of sending the QSL image requires a strong
interference-free signal and just one improperly decoded character may
render the image useless unless it is an easily recognizable and
correctable error."

Hopefully the experiment of sending the file as a normal SVG and not as
a URLencoded embedded file in a HTML document may make a difference this
week and the fact that it will be in MFSK32 and not MFSK64.

Mark Hirst from the UK commented on the article broadcast last week
which included a review of the Panasonic RF-2220 and said "Liked the
review of the Panasonic RF-2200 - love those seventies radios with their
giant dials and big cabinets. I bought a Sony ICF-6700L on eBay a few
years ago (spent more than I should but what the heck) - after some
cleaning with DeOxit it performs well and has a beautiful sound. I use
it occasionally to record VOA Radiogram using it's giant whip antenna.

The interior is something to behold, pulleys, string, a giant tuning
gearbox, little light bulbs, and seemingly miles of circuits and
discrete components spread across multiple circuit boards with barely a
microprocessor in sight - compare and contrast with my CommRadio CR1a
which has two small chips and not a lot else !" Thanks for emailing in
Mark and for your tips on making the SVG file as small as possible! Here
is Mark's SVG file of the VOA Logo which was included in a VOA Radiogram
programme last year, copy the text and save as a .SVG file to view it:


<svg version="1.1" width="98" height="42">

Hello and welcome to the extra broadcast of DigiDX 21, a weekly review of the latest shortwave and DX news. This experimental broadcast includes shortwave news and the over-the-air QSL card.

The QSL will be transmitted in parallel to this broadcast, using the slow MFSK11 mode, centered on 2500 Hz in html format. The html code has been edited in order the output to look similar to the original eQSL image. Also, it has been stripped down to the essential
code in the direction of reducing the transmission time.

In order to view the QSL card, please copy the received text from <html> to </html> (including the two tags) to a text editor and save it as html file (e.g. QSL20.html) which can be viewed in your favourite browser. Please note that the html code will be transmitted
two times, starting in about 6 minutes. You can now open a second instance of your decoding software and set the mode and center frequency manually.


DigiDX weekly schedule:
Sunday 2130 - 15770 kHz via WRMI (Okeechobee, FL, USA)
Sunday 2330 - 11580 kHz via WRMI (Okeechobee, FL, USA)
Monday 2000 -
6070k Hz via Channel 292 (Rohrbach Wall, DE)
Daily 0530/1830 - 6070 kHz via Channel 292 (Rohrbach Wall, DE)


Thanks to Channel 292 broadcasting the extra daily repeats of DigiDX, to buy shortwave time from Channel 292 at very reasonable prices go to http://www.channel292.de.

--- LATEST SHORTWAVE NEWS ---

Voice of Turkey and Turkish coup attempt

The attempted military coup d'etat in Turkey on the 15th and 16th of July lead to an increased interest in Voice of Turkey’s shortwave broadcasts and any reactions or changes to the VoT broadcast as parent company TRT’s TV broadcasts were taken off the air by the
coup plotters.
Voice of Turkey broadcast in English at 2200 to 2300 on 9830 kHz was recorded earlier which is normal practice from VoT for all broadcasts after 1830 and therefore had no mention of the attempted coup instead focusing on the reactions to the terrorist attacks in
Nice. At the same time Voice of Greece on 9935 kHz had been broadcasting non-stop news about the crisis in its neighbouring country. BBC World Service also had rolling news about the events in Turkey on several frequencies aimed at Asia.
The first indications changes to normal programming was on the 0000 UTC broadcast in Turkish to East Asia on 9735 which broadcast audio from a chaotic sounding street with the sound of shouting, screaming and gunfire heard in the background. Sometimes this sounded
like a discussion between presenters and guests but sometimes it sound like a microphone that had just been left open.
The 9870 kHz 0100 Spanish broadcast seemed to be another recorded programme from the day before. According to monitoring reports via DXLD, French programming at 0500 was missing from shortwave.
On Saturday the English language programme devoted the entire news section of the broadcast to news of the coup including reactions from the Turkish president, prime minister and parliament. However the rest of the programme did continue as normal.
Some recordings of the first English programme after the coup attempt is expected to be added to http://shortwavearchive.com/ in the coming days.


Shiokaze Seabreeze on Medium Wave

DigiDX reported at the start of June on tests from Babcock on 1431 kHz broadcast from the Choybalsan transmitter in Mongolia. It was speculated that this test was for the BBC who are soon to launch a radio service in Korean to North Korea however from 1430 to 1500
each day the Japanese clandestine station Shiokaze Seabreeze will use this frequency.
This suggests the tests were actually for the Japanese station which uses Babcock for other frequency brokering and not the BBC.
Shiokaze Seabreeze is a station aimed at Japanese people who were abducted by North Korea in the period of 1977-1983. The number of victims is officially recognised by the Japanese government to be 19 but it is possible there may be hundreds of victims.


Unidentified African station on 7750kHz


Since the 26th June there have been reports of a new unidentified African station broadcasting on 7750 kHz in upper sideband mode. The station has been heard in Central and Northern Europe around 1700-1930 UTC.
Between 1800-1830 the broadcast relays the BBC Somali broadcast which suggests that the station is from or is targeted at Somalia or one of the breakaway countries in the Horn of Africa. Because of the BBC relay the station is likely to be related to one of these
governments rather than being militant-controlled ( e.g. Al Shabab or Al Qaeda).


Clandestine Radio Adal launches on shortwave

A new clandestine targeted at Eritrea called Radio Adal has started on shortwave since the 13th of July on 15205 kHz at 1500 UTC on Wednesdays and Saturdays only.
The first 30 minutes of the programme is Arabic while the 2nd half is in the Tigrinya language. The broadcast transmitted at 100 kW and is possibly from the Nauen transmitter in Germany.
The Adal Sultanate or Kingdom of Adal was a medieval Muslim state located in present day Eritrea.

Osmosis - the Next Big Step for Clean Energy?

Kevin Enochs
July 13, 2016

Solar Power is becoming increasingly inexpensive, and efficient.
The same goes for wind power, but a natural limitation of both
systems is that on some days the sun doesn't shine, and on some
days, the wind doesn't blow.

But researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
(EPFL) say they have found a simple way to produce a lot of
energy, anywhere a river meets the sea.

Their work is being published in the journal Nature and it's an
incredibly simple and straightforward idea that uses osmosis to
create energy.

Osmosis occurs when salty water hits fresh water across a
permeable membrane. Salt ions (atom with an electrical charge)
will pass through the membrane until the amount of salt is equal
on both sides. Pretty simple.

Catch a charge

The researchers wondered if they could figure out how to capture
that electrical charge as it moved across the membrane separating
the fresh and salty water. They did it by creating two tiny
membranes, just three atoms thick, made of molybdenum disulfide,
which is plentiful and easy to produce. Then they made a tiny
hole in the membranes and let osmosis take over and push the
electrically charged salt ions through this nanopore.

What makes this unique is that the nanopore lets positively
charged ions through, while keeping out most of the negatively
charged ions. A generator attached to the membrane collects this
energy. It sounds simple, but the researchers say it just seems
that way.

"We had to first fabricate and then investigate the optimal size
of the nanopore. If it's too big, negative ions can pass through
and the resulting voltage would be too low. If it's too small,
not enough ions can pass through and the current would be too
weak," said Jiandong Feng, lead author of the research. Getting
that nanopore just right is the big news.

Pure energy

The researchers say a one meter square membrane with nanopores
across about 30 percent of its space could produce one megawatt
of energy, enough to light 50,000 standard energy efficient light
bulbs.

But it isn't easy to drill a nanopore in a three atom thick
membrane, and standardizing that process is going to take much
more work.

"We can control with sub-nanometer precision pore size when we
work with the single nanopore," Aleksandra Radenovic, one of the
researchers told VOA. "To scale the process and have millions or
trillions of pores, that would require a different nanopore
fabrication process."

But according to Radenovic that's exactly what they're working on
now. If they can standardize the process of creating these
nanopore filled membranes it just might be possible to create
huge amounts of energy all the time, wherever salty and fresh
water mix.

BATTLE OF THE 55 WPM MODES

VOA Radiogram listener Mark Hirst in the UK suggests an
experiment with the BPSK63F mode. His interest was generated by
an article in the August QST comparing the various "flavors" of
PSK.

In some of the early editions of VOA Radiogram, we transmitted
BPSK63F. With its forward error correction, it performed well. On
today's program, we will compare three modes with speeds of about
55 words per minute. First will be BPSK63F, followed by MFSK16,
then Olivia 8-1000. All will be centered on 1500 Hz.

The RSID for each mode will be transmitted. That will be followed
by a 15-second tuning signal in case you need to change the mode
manually.

All of the content in this experiment is from the VOA Science
World Blog, 13 July 2016:

Astronomers Spot Snow Circling New Star

For the first time, astronomers have been able to get a glimpse
of a water "snowline" in a protoplanetary disk, which is the
material surrounding a new star that may later form into planets.

This water "snowline" marks the point within these left overs of
star formation where the temperature and pressure drop to a point
to allow water ice to form.

These "snowlines" usually form closer to a star whose light
overwhelms any possible observation.

In this case it was formed farther out than normal from the star,
identified as V883 Orionis, so astronomers were able to image it
with the ALMA radio telescope in Chile.

It's believed that a sudden and significant increase in the
brightness of the star is what pushed the "snowline" out to where
it could be seen.

The astronomers say that this phenomenon is about 6 billion
kilometers from the star, comparable to the orbit of Pluto in our
solar system.

New Gas Saving Cars May Add to Climate Change

Many drivers today prefer vehicles that use less petrol and cost
less to operate.

But a new Canadian study suggests that although fuel-efficient
technologies may provide more miles per gallon, some of these new
gas saving internal combustion engines could actually contribute
to climate change.

To provide their customers with vehicles that offer high
performance, while using less gas, automakers have been turning
to a small new type of fuel-efficient engine known as the
gasoline direct injection, or GDI engine.

The study found that that while GDI engines emit less carbon
dioxide, they also produce higher levels of the climate-warming
pollutant black carbon than traditional engines.

The researchers suggest installing more effective filters in GDI
engines, at the risk of slightly lower fuel-efficiency, but
preserving the technology's net benefit for the environment.

Frankenstein Galaxy Detected

Lying some 250 million light years away, in what is described as
a quiet and unexceptional section of the universe, astronomers
have discovered a gigantic and quite unusual galaxy.

What makes UGC 1382 such an oddity is that they believe it was
formed from the parts of other galaxies.

So they've nicknamed it the Frankenstein Galaxy, after the
fictional monster made from body parts taken from various
corpses.

At first this mammoth galaxy was thought to be just a tiny, old
and normal galaxy.

But after sifting through data gathered by a couple of NASA's
space telescopes, along with several ground based telescopes, the
astronomers realized that the galaxy was a rotating disk of
low-density gas that's seven times wider than the Milky Way.
