QSL image for DL0ESA

DL0ESA

is the club call-sign of the Radioclub of the European Space Agency Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany.

http://www.esa.int/About_Us/ESOC

The ESOC Radio Club is supported by ESA's Sports, Social and Cultural Committe (SSCC)

The responsible for the club call is OM Manfred, DL5FAB

http://www.qrz.com/db/dl5fab

The club station is member of the German DARC DOK - F42.

http://www.f42.info

We are supporting the Amateur Radio on ISS (ARISS) Organsiation in planning, preparing and executing their activities:

http://www.ariss-eu.org

and hold the license for the German Astronauts on-board ISS:

DP0ISS

Shack Set-up:

The ESOC Radioclub is mainly activ on theHF bands from 80m to 10m but has also access to a VHF/UHF/S-Band Station usedin the context of the GENSO project:

http://www.genso.org

The HF station is build around a Kenwood TS-870 with 2 Laptops supporting the electronic log and digital modes operation.

Since 2013 we have anALPIN 100 PA providing up tolegal power of 750W.

Our antennas consist in an Opti-Beam 9-5 for 20, 17,15,12,10 m and a double dipol for 80m and 40minstalled on the top floor of a metal parking deck:

Actual shack set-up:

 

 

We will activate the station for major contests and for special events happening at ESA and in particular atESOC, e.g for

celebrating or promoting special satellite operations activities.

Regular contacts are kept with the club stations at the European Space Agency's other establishments, like:

PI9ESA

at ESA's Technical Centre ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands:

https://sites.google.com/site/pi9esa/

or ESA's Earth Observation Centre ESRIN:

II0ESA:

http://www.qsl.net/i0wtd/ii0esa.html

Actual Activity:

ESA Amateur Radio Galileo Special Events by theESA radio club. Weare organising special activity occasionsto celebrate the achievements of the Galileo Satellite Navigation Project.

In addition, an award programme is on-going since 2013. You will find us in SSB, CW and DigiModes.

Next activation planned in first week of March. Details will be announced on:

Previous Activities

Origins 2013- Join us for European Researchers’ Night

A European Researchers' Night event, 27th September 2013

CERN, ESA, ESO and UNESCO in partnership with the Italian Institute of Astrophysics are inviting the public to an exceptional event taking place simultaneously in Geneva, Paris and Bologna.

World known scientists and protagonists of the Higgs and Plank research will take audiences on a spectacular journey back in space and time, through particle physics (the infinitely small) and cosmology and astrophysics (the infinitely large). Viewers in local and remote audiences will experience the moments of our primordial origins from a sudden expansion of space and transformation of energy into matter at the birth of the universe, 13.7 billion years ago.

Videoconferences will link the three European cities to ESA’s Planck’s Operations Centre at the European Space Operations Centre ESOC, in in Darmstadt Germany, with Nazzareno Mandolesi, Principal Investigator for Planck’s LFI instrument, and to remote venues, such as ESO’s ALMA telescope site in Chile, to the Large Hadron Collider tunnel, 100 m underground, and to Luca Parmitano, ESA’s astronaut on the International Space Station.

The ESOC Radio Club with its club station DL0ESA will be active during the event together with the ESA clubstations at ESRIN - II0ESA and ESTEC - PI9ESA

Contacts for this event will count for the Galileo Award (see further below)

Galileo related Ham Radio Events 2013

 
The Galileo satellite navigation system programme will face important milestones during 2013. Radio amateurs of the European Space Agency decided to participate on those achiements with some special amateur radio activities. All radio clubs of ESA (ESTEC, ESOC, ESRIN) will be activated during those events. During launches of Galileo satellites from our space port in French Guiana a station in Kourou will be active (see also the 2012 event). In addition, all 2013 radio activities from Kourou under the Galileo programme will count for this event. These radio activities will be performed by ESA staff and engineers many of them directly involved into the design, development, deployment and integration of the system. Activation will be done during staff's spare time!
 
Radio bands and modes: SSB, CW, DigiModes primarily on HF-bands

First Galileo autonomous position, time, velocity (PVT) fix-which took place 12 March 2013
