In response to concerns expressed by a significant number of radio amateurs NZART Council has resolved that there is to be a review of the New Zealand band plan for the 70 cm band.
At the NZART Council Face to Face Meeting in Wellington on Saturday the 16th of February a working group was formed comprising of Councillors Warren Harris ZL2AJ, Neill Ellis ZL1TAJ and Phil King ZL1PK with members of FMTAG David Andrews ZL2SX, Doug Ingham ZL2TAR and Terry Thomas ZL4TAE. It is intended that it also be discussed at the 2013 Technology Convention over Easter in Auckland.
All submissions should contain your callsign and contact address.
The full text of the request for submissions along with current 70 cm band plans for NZ, Australia and IARU Region 3 can be found here ( www.nzart.org.nz/info/repeaters-bandplans/70cm_plan_review/ )
Each year the IARU Administrative Council selects a theme for World Amateur Radio Day (WARD) for the following year. WARD takes place each year on April 18. At the November, 2012 Administrative Council meeting the AC adopted the following proposal: "The theme 'Amateur Radio: Entering Its Second Century of Disaster Communications' was adopted for the next World Amateur Radio Day, April 18, 2013."
The selected theme for 2013 is a excellent opportunity for amateur radio emergency communications or disaster communications groups to take advantage of the WARD to highlight the role amateur radio plays in disaster communications and disaster response. IARU member-societies could arrange amateur radio demonstrations in public places such as parks or shopping areas. Prepared handouts could explain the benefits of amateur radio in times of emergency or disaster. A ham radio demonstration in public areas usually generates inquiries and questions from the public about amateur radio and it also provides a great opportunity to attract new ham radio operators. If you plan on such a demonstration, don't forget to include some young people from your society so that young people who happen by the demonstration can see that amateur radio activity can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
In 2013, April 18 is a weekday. However, that doesn't prevent the public activity from taking place on the weekend before or after April 18. The idea is to gain as much exposure and publicity for amateur radio as possible.
