The Catholic Church Stands Up for Life and Holds Pelosi Accountable

"Interesting to me. Now, aside from this debate with Nancy Pelosi taking communion and again, communion being a sacrament in the Catholic Church, this is a big deal. What amazes me is as you talk about this, you have the media and others, including the San Francisco paper, editorial board saying that the leader in the aristocracy of San Francisco who did this who banned from communion for Nancy Pelosi Pelosi ought to be removed and taken out of that leadership role. And I'm wondering about this. And I sit here and I think about it and this just shows the frustration that I have. That they are the left is so wedded to this pro abortion policy. That they will not tolerate any dissent. And when you look at this idea and I've left with this being a pastor and being a chaplain in the air force, let me just say that you are free to express your religious beliefs any way you want to. That is the very ultimate idea of freedom of religion. If you want to worship as a Catholic, you worship physicality. You want to worship as a southern madness, as I am, worshiping some, pick your choice. What you want. If you don't want to worship at all, that's your choice. If you want to worship a nature, that's your choice. If you want to be, you know, any form of your religious belief that self sustaining belief that you have, that is what you have in the United States and the government can not take that away from you.

Beto o'rourke, this clown who wants to be Texas next governor, decided to make an ass of himself and stood up and interrupted the press conference by screaming accusations at the ivaldi and state government leaders.

Tom Ascol on Changing the Current Culture Giving Rise to Evil Acts

"Can you speculate as to why some members of the SBC have been willing to adopt and entertain some of these ideologies? Why do you think that they have been as successful as they have? You and I would both agree that they are inconsistent and incongruent with theological truth and teaching. But yet they've had a surprising amount of success. Why do you think that is? Well, two reasons. One, it's the cultural air that we breathe. And so we can not escape the fact that we are living in a time when these kind of ideas are just permeating everything in culture and if you're not having your defenses up and being on guard all the time, then you're going to be moved along by those cultural wins. And that happens more readily where there's not a rock ribbed solid commitment to the full and authority of God's word and the lordship of Jesus Christ over every square inch of creation. And sadly, I think what's being exposed in our Southern Baptist convention is that our theological convictions have been more theoretical than they have been practical that our confessional theology has not moved into functional theology nearly as rigorously as it should have. And as a result, as we've been worn not to invasions for, I see that we have been moved along by various winds of doctrine out of our confessional parameters at points, and we need to we need to be recovered. We need God to come and send us a great spirit of repentance and revival so that we can once again stand firm under the lordship of Christ.

Charlie Breaks Down Unique Characteristics of the Georgia Electorate

"A fan of Brian Kemp, I've spoke about it openly and I believe that David perdue would be a great governor. Now, Donald Trump has endorsed David perdue as David perdue was mounting a primary challenge against Brian Kemp. But you must understand that the political landscape of Georgia is very much a good old boys network. It's a lot of local counties back slapping. Did you come to the local high school football game? Did you get good tickets at the university of Georgia football game? And I don't want to accuse Brian Kemp of anything illegal. That's not what I'm doing here, but it definitely is a patronage system in Georgia. Now, some states that really isn't the case. I can tell you right now, Arizona is not a good old boys network. There is that kind of McCain group in Arizona, but in Arizona, if you haven't lived here, if you just kind of moved here, you can, excuse me, you can kind of upstart and you can kind of run. Now you've got, of course, there's an establishment you have to navigate. But Georgia, it's a very much of a, who were you? Did you check the boxes? You know, were you able to take care of the right people? So Brian Kemp made a brilliant political move where he basically metaphorically neutered David perdue, where he put the more powerful Purdue, which was sunny perdue, I believe his name, which was, I think they're relatives on that mistake. I think their cousins and he appointed them to some sort of university board, which all but basically destroyed the fundraising ability of the entire Purdue network. So Kemp took care of a fellow Purdue in the family, which kind of, let's say, blunt was thwarted a lot of David perdue's ability to be able to continue to raise capital. Now, David perdue made a decision not to run for the United States Senate. That looks like it's going to be the great Herschel Walker. But Kemp worked the state, Kemp was able to maximize corporate donations. There's a lot of, there's a lot of powerful corporations in Georgia, CNN, obviously, is headquartered in Atlanta. I don't think they gave money to Purdue. Coca-Cola is headquartered in Atlanta, at least they said they hated Brian Kemp, Home Depot, was headquartered for quite a while in Atlanta, Delta Air Lines for a while was headquartered in Atlanta. There's a lot of there's a lot of companies that have a significant presence in the state of Georgia. It's a, it's always kind of prided itself on being a quote unquote, pro business state. To a fault, by the way, where Georgia invited Hollywood liberals for years via this phony and crony tax credit system where you bring in the Will Ferrell's and the Kevin Hart's of the world where they become like pseudo citizens of Georgia and they overly finance these elections. One of the many reasons why Georgia has become a battleground state which never should have become a battleground state. But

Tax Documents Reveal Truth About BLM Fraud

"My passion is to destroy the Black Lives Matter organization and show and prove to the world that they are the fraudulent organization that we always knew them to be. And this is not about politics. This is not about boot licking, Uncle Tom, and all this little crazy stuff people call me because I'm calling out the truth. This is about you understanding what the truth is and being able to make valuable decisions moving forward on who you support. Some of y'all was running around with a Black Lives Matter shirt on pumping your fist in the air, calling every white friend you know a racist. All in the name of what? Patrice colors should go to jail for this stuff. If you ask me, let's go through the financials. The financials were released. The headline reads from the daily wire, BLM cofounder paid her baby daddy. $970,000 for creative work, a creative services is what it's called. Quote unquote. Peter brother, $840,000 for security. Now, you know for a fact, they ain't doing no security and nobody doing nothing creative at Black Lives Matter to get almost a $1 million. But let's go through the finances in more depth or more in depth. $42 million in assets is what they were able to raise. They spent 37 million of those dollars on multiple different things that will make you sick to your stomach. I said it before, baby daddy got 970,000. Her brother got 840,000. The secretary of the BLM board secretary got 2.1 million Patrice Keller's had to reimburse Black Lives Matter because she spent $73,000 on a private jet.

"We're looking, of course, at mass inflation, 8.3% in terms of consumer prices, you're seeing it reflected in the markets today, right? Because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was really challenged midday on Wednesday down 963 points as we go to air. That's a loss of about 3% really, really significant. And so people are fearful right now. You're seeing the earnings are actually being compromised because, well, guess what? When you have this much inflation and gas prices cost this much more, it means that people don't have as much money to say go and spend it dollar store or Walmart or target target, which traded down significantly, of course, on Wednesday, earnings are suffering. This is the, this is the fear that everybody had, right? That once the fed backed off and people started dealing with the realization of inflation and they scaled back on their spending, that it would affect corporate profits and you'd start to see a sell off on Wall Street. And in fact, that's what we're seeing. I would just caution that we may not have seen the worst of it.

"air" Discussed on The Air Up There

"I don't think people get to know much about how important aviation is to mushroom in real Alaska, but also how important the iditarod air force is to the iditarod. They're kind of quietly go about their business, but yet it makes the race happen. Welcome to the air up there, a podcast about the wide world of aerospace. I'm Jeannie schiffer. And let me tell you today's episode is going to the dogs. Not the Georgia bulldogs. But sled dogs. I'm Alison Duquette, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the world famous iditarod race in Alaska. We're going behind the scenes with iditarod air force chief pilot, Ed cornfield, mushroom Richie deal, and our own my colleague and Sam McCoy. Now they're part of an F-18 that keeps flights safe before, during and even after the very last team has finished the race in gnome. The I did a rod is a roughly 1000 mile race, easy for me to say. Over land. So some people may wonder, what's the aviation connection? The iditarod trail is one of the earliest U.S. national historic trails, and it runs from seward through anchorage and all the way northwest known. And back in 1925, the trail was the lifesaving highway for the diphtheria stricken gnome. Air travel was impossible due to the harsh winter. So 20 mushers and their heroic dogs carried anti talk some serum in a 674 mile relay from Fairbanks to nome. And today, the all volunteer, I did a rod air force, has 28 pilots who have 300,000 plus total flight hours. They transport judges, veterinarians, checkpoint volunteers, and others, and they move food and fuel and even airlift dogs. Not every dog can finish the race. Some dogs may be injured or they just don't feel well, so they're picked up and flown back to anchorage. Well, now that's impressive. The iditarod air force or IAF likes to say that they are the real deal and they sure are. Flying in Alaska has so many weather challenges. Our podcast regular Chris troxel spoke with IAF chief pilot Ed cornfield about how they coordinate with FAA flight service about keeping everyone safe in Alaska's crazy weather. Can you tell me a little bit about how you got involved as a volunteer pilot for that organization? Interestingly enough, I happen to have a one 80 assessment one 81 81 85 of the airplanes of choice for the idea to write air force. I didn't use these very often, trying to mine named John Norris, who was the chief pilot at the time of the idea. He was actually one of my customers at my repair station. I said, well, I want you to come to one of our meetings, see if you like the group. And so I went to the meeting and he called the mini daughter at the very first thing he said was to meet our newest pilot. So I got to kind of draft it into the idea of course. And I've never regretted it ever. It's been a great experience. Wonderful people. It's basically a second family. They started with just a handful of pilots in the early 70s and it's grown to be what it is. Our level of safety is equivalent to a one 35 operation. How do you get started and how do you get prepared with these other pilots? So we'll start loaning out. We feel the airplanes up with straw or a, depending where we're going with stakes or laughs that they use to mark the trails, tents and propane, and lots of other things. Everything they need minus the people will start going out on the loadout. Once the race starts, we'll be positioned in places like anchorage in the graph. And then we'll start even a couple of days before we're going to start calling the volunteers out with their home veterinarians out from the start holding comms people and other volunteers, dog handlers, whatever checkers, judges, race judges. So all those people will take those people out and more supplies as they need them. And so we're constantly showing you back and forth. We'll haul the dogs back to our bases, which in this case would be either anchorage, your graph, or your creek, and from there a bigger airplane would come and pick them up, bring it back. Thank you for your own handlers to take them back to their home. How difficult would it be for you to provide these services and supplies to the mushers and without flight service? Firstly, every morning, we have a pilot briefing, you get the weather updates, Snowden, and that sort of thing and we call flight service in the graph and there, right on site, we call them and put them on a speakerphone. We get an excellent and a thorough briefing from the specialist there. Our college can ask questions, let's say you know what we need, you know, the weather in Alaska, especially in the interior can be unpredictable to find. So you may start out with a day that looks like it's going to be okay and then next thing you know you got to make snow squall that moves in and the weather goes down quite service as a huge help, which obviously stays safe in the air. For this year's event, what are you looking forward to, you know, obviously the challenges always are weather related and in this year obviously in COVID-19 and so I think we do have hurricane that's in charge. She's actually a doctor and it works for the CDC and she's very good at you through the last year and basically kept us safe the whole time. What do you love most about flying and flying for the iditarod? It's such a beautiful state, beautiful country and those of us that have been out here for a long time and have flown throughout Alaska really appreciate the beauty solitude when you go out to some of these checkpoints and you're the only one there, especially during the loadout when there's nobody there yet and you just land and drop off your surprise. It's just breathtaking and quiet and serene and you just kind of stand there in all. But also what I like about it is the camaraderie of all the data on air force people and really all the volunteers that are part of the iditarod total, not just the air force. They come from all over the world, they've taken time off from their lives and their work from their jobs, taking vacation to do this. They're putting a lot into this, but they come with smiles and happiness and it's really a pleasure to work with those people and to be part of the itinerary air force, which is basically a group of brothers and sisters that I think will give you the show not for that. So FIA flight service gets important weather and other information to the IAF pilots, which in turn keeps everybody safe. Flight service specialist Mike Holly and Sam mcclelland volunteered to work the race this year and they talked to Chris about how the FAA supports the race as well as what it's like to work for the FAA in Alaska..

But i don't really get it and you know having a handbook handy. They can open up to it. And like i said they can it. They can get really surface level with it and if they go back and read it again six months later after they have an understanding they get something more out of it just gets like et cetera. You can get really deep into the week win them. That's true in issues of on the air magazine. We try to address fundamental concepts for example Reactivates will what is reacting to. What is inductive. It's what is capacity of reactions. And why should you even care about it. But of course in on the magazine we only have so many pages available to us. The handbook on the other hand goes into substantial depth. You can read as far as you want to get an understanding of the concept or you can go much farther in the same book to dive headfirst into the mathematics..

"To just voice communication. Well it depends the two types of public service communications really amateurs. I'm often one is tactical communications. The other is logistical and tactical communications. You're going to continue to see a lot of voice communications. You also going to continue to see things like ulta g. and gs eight call. That are great for technical communications short messages. That gives clear directions but in logistics. I think it win is going to be the dominant force simply because you do have the automatic recent request a r. q. Which makes sure that the message either goes through one hundred percent or not at all if it doesn't go through at all then. Usa operator find a different task for it to go through. And that's really powerful. The other thing. I would like to point out is at the end of the day. Women is a tool like i felt. Deejays a call voice communications. It's a tool in our and we use whatever gets the to. I think that's important part in the most important item is the operator because without the operators. None of this really works. We can throw all the technology at any system we want to but the real problems are solved by operators who know what they're doing in the field absolutely. Well thank you very much. Oliver is it was very informative. Thank you so much. Steve for having the and please If anybody wants to reach out We're happy to to assist in building capabilities. Wherever it is in the nation or beyond as i said we helped events in canada and just email me at k. Six oyeleye at eight l. dot net and i'm happy to.

"Of the march april issue of on the air is devoted to the debut of solar cycle twenty five which officially started a little more than ear ago. This is a big deal to amateur radio operators because it promises much improved conditions on the f bans but what is a solar cycle. And how does it affect communications here on earth to answer that question and several more. I called carlucci swab nine l. A. carla's the a r l central division vice director and an expert on how signals bounce around our planet and how the sun makes this possible. Good afternoon carl. Hey steve how you doing. Why don't we start with the basics on this We're talking about solar cycle. Twenty five but what is a solar cycle mel. Stephen solar cycle is just basically an eleven year period in which the sun goes from very inactive to very active in other words the sun puts out radiation at many wavelengths. And all those all that radiation goes from a minimum to a maximum average eleven year period. And how we see that. Visually is through sunspots. Were just wear the sun's magnetic field bricks through the sun's surface. And of course that's a misnomer because the sun isn't a solid the surface is what we see. it's a big ball of plasma. Basically they bala plasma then when the magnetic field inside the sun breaks through the sun surface that results in cooling in that area. And that's why sunspots are dark if you ever look through a telescope with properly filtered. Itc's you can see that. The sunspots are just dark spots on the sun and go from a very few at a solar minimum which we were just coming up too many sunspots all over the sun which will probably see in about another three to four years. How does sunspots differ. Carl from Solar flares that people hear about the so-called c. m. e. coronal mass ejections. How are they different. Well noah has categorized disturbances to propagation two to three categories One is geomagnetic storms and that includes coronal mass ejections which the name kind implies what it really is. It's an injection of a lot of solar material an explosion on the sun and it's very visually very extraordinary to see one of those. Of course we do have pictures of that. You can Google singing emmys. And you'll probably see some good videos of a seem. Cme exploiting on the sun. What it does. This sends lots of particles towards earth which could not be good for us. Also another explosion on the sun is a solar flare. Mostly what that does is send very short x ray wavelengths ford's earth which can Which can affect our propagation and if it wasn't for the atmosphere Life on earth would be kinda interesting without any protection from all that radiation difficult to say the least it difficult. Yeah maybe not. Existent is like mars without It's well it has a small atmosphere but nothing like earth so nothing protects the mars from solar flares and everything else that the sun does we get further into our new solar cycle. Will we see more sunspots and more of this other activity. Yes we will. As we're about.

"Small enough that you can use it indoors and lightweight enough that you can hang it from any hook and inside of the house so as a first antenna it was a a nice way to kind of jump into the realm of having a decent antenna where you didn't have to put up. A large bast outside and run collects through the wall. Most of the students just hung up either in their dorm or artists. Now i'm just curious. Where many of these students also tech majors were. They majoring in electron ix engineering. So about half of them are we have. We have one student who's involved in geology. Doing a phd in in different He he does geology modeling. Probably the most interesting student that we had was From the theater department and he was in charge of the sound system designed there the in theater set design and so he actually brought a much different perspective and because of his production ability and his voice. We actually asked him to record our eco link introduction that we have now and he did a super job doing that but i would say half of them are are really hardcore technical majors and the other half are associated technical majors. What sort of projects do you think will carry this forward in other words. Do you have something else in mind after this i do. We have other antennas that we'd like to build. We also do some summits on the air activity using antennas and we also do some fox hunting as well so a lot of our activities Do revolve around antennas. Because they're instructed you can see them. They're more intuitive. You can build them and then you could also use them as well. We had It the students all got three element to meet yankees and we did a summits on air activity in southwest tucson on a short four thousand foot peak that we have and the students were amazed. We were able to talk to people in phoenix using those ninety miles away. They were literally blown away by the performance. Those just using a decent hand held in a three element yagi. So we've we've had a number number of follow on activities that revolve around antennas. What do you think has been the impact on the club as a whole do you think it's boosted participation or interest in the club absolutely and probably the main reason is the weekly participation in the net in just having having a weekly touch a touchstone you'll get it just Staying engaged with the with the club on a weekly basis is a real nice way to keep students engaged. We have great discussions in our. That would be the other thing that i would suggest is just a fantastic aspect of our club is we have. I would say seventy eight people check into that net. Every week it's really well attended and the the net control is a student right and they choose a topic of their of their choice right and then they published that topic prior to the net anywhere from a half day to a couple of hours before the the thought is and steve. This has this has really been a great addition to our club. I would put a big astros. Next is is the discussion revolves around one topic. We've talked about meteors scanner. We've talked about different equipment..

"Welcome to the on the air. Podcast a companion two on the year magazine. A new bimonthly magazine from a rl for beginner to intermediate hamriya licensees filling in for becky show fell w. b. x. y. I'm steve ford wbz eight. I m y every month the on the air. Podcast extends material found in on the air magazine to help you learn about the many things the ham radio service and hobby has to offer the on the air. Podcast is sponsored by. I calm for the love of ham radio. Welcome to the november twenty twenty episode. This month will take a closer look at material from the november december. Twenty twenty issue particularly article about choosing the best antenna for the job. If you're a newer ham who's wondering how to choose from all the antennas out there. We're going to help you get familiar. With the options and considerations there are so many antenna designs dipoto doublet. Long wire n fed off center fed dipoto zap extended zip bazooka lazy. H bobtail curtain vertical. Top loaded base loaded shunt fed yagi and more many more with so many designs and configurations. You know which one's best answering that question isn't simple requires information about your station your location and the type of ham activity you plan to undertake if you take a look at the article. The best antenna for the job in november december issue of on the air. You'll see that we've laid out suggestions. According to the type of ham activity you might be interested in the h f. Uhf mobile vhf from home casual h f from home and competitive h f from home beyond those suggestions. However there are other considerations such a safety cost and the size of your property depending on where you live you may also need to consider aesthetics homeowner association rules and even local zoning ordinances. You don't want to go through the work of putting up an antenna only to discover that you have to take it down again because it somehow violates a local rule passive or active radiation is another thing to consider yes. Antennas can be active or passive. The active part of an antenna is the part that connects directly to your radio. Think of it as the filament. In incandescent light bulb when you apply power to it. The filament glows a believe it or not. Antennas glow as well but our eyes can't perceive the radiant energy at those frequencies. Imagine what the world would look like if we could see radio energy a high powered. Fm broadcast antenna on top of a tall tower would be dazzlingly bright. The passive part of the antenna is the one that isn't connected directly to your radio. The passive part picks up some of the radiated energy and re radiates to create a pattern of energy in a particular direction. The famous yagi antenna works in exactly this way. The metal tubes or wires placed in front of the active part what we call the radiating element receives and re radiates the energy forward in the direction. The antenna is pointing. These elements are called directors. Because they helped direct the energy forward behind the radiating element is another to wire that passively picks up the energy and re radiates it forward. It's called the reflector another example of a passive antenna component. That you probably see every day is a satellite. Tv dish that round dish-shaped piece is a passive reflector and it focuses the energy from the satellite to point out in front where the active part of the antenna resides sometimes passive radiation. Could be. and that's when it can cause interference to other electronic devices and even disrupt the function of your antenna. Keep this in mind. When selecting a location for your antenna things like metal ring gutters. Aluminum siding or fencing could be problematic because they might act as passive antennas and cause serious distortion of your antennas pattern. If they're close enough to your antenna they can also change its impedance and caused the standing wave ratio to increase at your operating frequency. Your radio will respond by reducing its output power. Which is not a good thing when you're trying to communicate many other things concerning your antenna. Need to be considered when you're planning your station. Such as the antennas location on the property property lines obstacles power lines and how the feed line will enter your house. You'll also hear hams talk about half wave quarter wave and full wave. Antennas why is that. Well we refer to our ham bands in wavelengths twenty meters eighty meters and so on the wavelengths of the ham bands tend to be multiples of one. Another for instance. A full wave length of twenty meters is about sixty six feet but a full wave length at forty meters is twice that value or about one hundred and twenty two feet this is called harmonic relation and it permits us to design and construct antennas that can easily be adapted for use on more than one band halfway. Antennas are physically one half the wavelength of the band on which they resonate as i just mentioned a full wavelength antenna for the twenty meter band would be about sixty six feet long so a half wave. Antenna is approximately half that or thirty three feet. In length halfway. Antennas are the simplest build and provide all the good electrical characteristics to make them efficient at radiating the signals from our stations. There are other times however when it might be appropriate to design antennas for other wavelengths such as when we're trying to make an antenna behave in a particular way for example it's common to see a five eighths wavelength and tanna used for vhf mobile applications or the goal. There is to create a pattern that offers better communication range. I hope you've enjoyed this episode. Which took a deeper dive into material from the november december. Twenty twenty issue of on the air magazine. We'll be back in december with information about sky. Warn what it does how to get involved. And what do we expect from.

"To the north of Brisbane Queensland is actually GONNA FADE TRAFFIC. Say the traffic onto the new. Mike is most traffic north and west near Depa oil weighing on the new runway. Okay so near. Rome is actually quite busy. Say is two separate ways that we deal with separating onto those parallel Roma's saw the independent dependent at the moment would just running to paint approaches to it which means that saw a dependent on the other side Independent. I can run independent one another Dan funnel but we need more controllers today that we just don't have the traffic to justify the extra controls at the console at the moment now. Hopefully that'll pick out very soon day. hopefully hopefully when we listen to the air traffic control towers speaking to the aircraft off. He Times like seed and star when you talking about departing and arriving craft. Could you just explain what they mean so the CD's a standard instrument the Panchen which is for instrument aircraft says two different ways aircraft generally navigate instrument flight rules five five or will and for a firefighter? Flawed bicycle needs to be close as affectively in the department maintain their end separation from terrain. Another aircraft visually Instrument flight rules. Don't make that so for instrument. Flight Rozov are the way that they depart. The runway is for a CD from with the passion. It's just a methodology for describing how to depart the run one in a safe manner because we'll have a gradient on that is to claw the Acropolis declined to separate itself from terrain and they can either be given a writer scene which they deposit control. Alicia heading for the aircraft the floor and then get right.

I will the aircraft statewide for two flights with the Tim. Area and unknown way. Track that we can separate from an astonishing standard timmel arrival route and just describes by to be the opposite to the seed the why that aircraft will fly from a effectively and fly stated through the ten malaria to get onto final for the remind. And it's just a game a methodology that puts it on a route that we can separate from. The season's style will generally have requirements or restrictions on it to separate them from each say say keeping the planes and Nice in predictable in the the direction the going like s crates. I it just standard routes that set themselves. Iran was from the deposits as long as. They're all nice standard raw and seeds. Happy at the moment. Obviously we all need to Cape One and a half meters away from each other aircraft a lot more than that. What's the distance that you need to keep aircraft away from each other in the sky vertically and horizontally vertically it's just some fate as the KOA separation Stimulant Association fate up to twenty nine thousand? Which is flat to they. Flightless from ten thousand fake. He's describing. Fake Blood Tim. Thousand feet in flight levels above that so let has become flat. Little one month's area say it's generally to task fate out to plot to non zero but Gordon that we easy guy said now. I think it gives all the way up to plot. Four one. Zero think awesome fate. I play as long as they are. What's called a sandwich was reduced? Vertical separation minima a little bit high for me because I left that survived tighting thousand fake. Nassau little beyond me. I'll be same status but I think it's obvious as long as it's the guys up to four one zero now and laterally all US three malls we can eat three malls in the terminal area and outside of that. It's five miles for the honor at sectors. Okay why do you need to make sure that the planes Assay Farley? It comes down to really only need one nautical mile between the possible positions of aircraft. But because there's a positional positional era in the writer. Depending on how far way from the right hand the tolerance has been added into that and then roundabout to a mall for each aircraft. Say this only can I possibly bay one more between them? It's not going to be that with the right as we have these days. But that was the generalize rule beckon thirty or forty years ago when it came out the separation standing why is added on. Top of that say depends on you kind of have three miles a lot. Following heavy for example say yet. We need more for that. Yeah so you mentioned the right offscreen. What can you actually see? When you're sitting at your at your desk on the right information do you have about each of the aircraft? We have a call Sawn. We have the can't agree we have the CON- OUT ACHIEVED. We have what she'd plagued cleaned them. We have a grant speed random to semi two digits. That's on the screen. So it's the first step he's doing. One hundred twenty knots. Will shed twelve on screen. Elast money's last numeral is rampant and taken off the screen and then for the unreal people that got fancy things. Loyd had I deal with them on. Cpi control a dollar link. They've got that access to them. As well and different other places they have made for the different separation status. When they're outside right are that's on the can access that information as well. Okay so obviously job need to speak to a lot of pilots for lots of different countries with different accents in varying levels of English proficiency. How do you make Shaw in a job way? Obviously communication is very critical that you can understand them and they can understand you do have English proficiency standard so that there's a minimum actually. We went through this fifty years ago when it was boarding. And it's just a methodist just a standard that has to be met and we also communicate in standard phraseology. There's a list of phraseology that listed in but generally the standard and it's fairly standard we don't deviate from that unless there's something unusual happening say it's just a climb to descend to and this is to stand while doing it. It's the same with the flight levels. It's fairly standard. In that. Way The star arrivals the there will named so. It's not unusual. They're all listed somewhere. Said we're not trying to describe something. It's just the name of that Saito Star so this should be able to on that and then I just plug it into the system. So it's generally not too bad casually you have some issues that it's it's. I mean if there's something unusual that they wanted to do. Generally that doesn't generalize thing doesn't happen to have me sort of. I know you've got to try and keep the the conversations between you and the pilots kind of using the standard phraseology and things but d get any pilots surgery cheeky. The have kind of abandoned with it depends on how busy it is too much painter. That goes on Especially if it's a dull day sometimes Christmas. There's a lot of Sometimes Mary Christmases that go on. Sometimes painful and sometimes you get the odd request. The request to go pass barn by things that from jet which has led to do not generally. It's busy mouth that the band doesn't happen that generally the pilots and controllers respectful and courteous occasional times when it gets a little tense. But everybody's is not a lot of Banta but the more busy against the chase were opportunity there is to have the Banda and so if a pilot didn't follow your instructions or perhaps they didn't sponsor to you what would she do. An air traffic controller. Choice them a couple of times for a read back of if recorded back and I didn't read it back and then after a certain period of Tom. Somebody several.

Every month. The the air podcast extends material found in on the air magazine to help you learn about the many things. The Ham Radio Service and hobby has to offer. The air. PODCAST is sponsored by icon for the love of Ham Radio. Welcome to the July Twenty Twenty episode this month we'll take a closer look at material from the July August twenty twenty issue, including tips for soldering appeal to fifty nine connector onto the end of length of coaxial cable and information on beginner courses for or interested in serving their communities during disasters and other incidents. In the July August issue, we gave you some background on Kovacs with the article shopping for coaxial cable as well as some background soldering with an article on tools and materials for soldering, and then we put it all together with that issues project to build article soldering pl to fifty nine co X. connectors. Here's some further background on Kovacs and the process of attaching appeal to fifty nine connector via soldering from Dino. Pompous King L Zero s the author of the article soldering PL, two fifty nine co X. connectors. Dino says. He'll cable is the most popular transmission line also called a feed line that Hams used to connect their radios to their antennas. coaxial cables vary in diameter, power, handling capability, operating, frequency, lime, loss, and flexibility. Fifty Ohm coaxial cable is popular because it matches the output impedance of our radios, and it can be routed without regard to other structures between the antenna and the radio, unlike other types of transmission line such as window line, which can't be twisted bent or placed too close to meddle. In order for you to be able to connect coaxial cable to your radio and your antenna, the ends of the cable need to have connectors amount. In many cases, the type of connector you'll need is called A. P. L. to nine. You Can Buy Co. accident has pl to fifty nine, already attached, or you can learn. The Time Honored Ham task. soldering them onto the CO ax. Yourself Dino's article in the July August issue provided step by step instructions that show how to solder appeal to fifty nine connector directly onto the end of a larger diameter, coaxial cable, such as our g eight archie to thirteen or are four hundred. Smaller diameter co ax, such as RG, fifty eight and g eight x also uses pl to fifty nine connectors, but if you're slaughtering them onto the cable yourself, they require an adapter or reducer to keep them secure in the rear cylinder of the connector body. We'll cover that method in an upcoming issue. In step, three of the how to instructions in stuttering, pl to fifty nine co ask connectors. We instruct you to coat a specific one inch section of the Co ax braid with solder. You do that by touching the tip of the soldering iron to the breed to heat the braid in that spot just enough so that solder will melt when it touches the heated part of the braid. You feed solid solder to that area and it melts. You then start working around the circumference of the braid heating it a little as you go applying solder to the heated part, then moving on in the same fashion, all around the circumference until the whole circumference of the braid has been solidified with solder. And you do this for about an inch length of the braid past where the Vinyl Outer Jacket of the cable ends. Dino Kale Zero S sends. There are two reasons why we apply solder to this section of Braid. The first reason is it stiffens the braid so that instep four when you trim away the braid in electric to expose the Inner Conductor Kovacs the braid is easier to trim to a nice clean edge around the circumference of the die electric. The second reason is the stiffened braid is better prepared for step eight when it needs to accept the solder from the cold solder blop. Theoretically you could simply trim the braid with wire cutters, but adding solder to the raid makes it much easier to work with. Thanks again to Dino K L zero s for the article and these tips. In the July August article, an introduction to aries. We gave you an overview of the amateur radio emergency service why it exists what it does, and how you can become part of it. Training is a big part of being ineffective ineffective Amateur Radio Volunteer. Some areas training involves simulated disastrous sponsors that elapse over hours or even days. Some of it involves exercises that help home specific skills and some areas training comes in the form of courses such as the beginner courses mentioned in the article. One of them is C. S. One hundred is a great place to start also known as I s one hundred dot, c., this fema course that presents an introduction to the incident command, system or ICS. The two hour course teaches the principles and basic structure of ICS the roles of staff within the ICS and how mims management characteristics apply to the ICS. Once you've taken ICS one hundred. You'll need to take. I S seven hundred, also known as I s seven hundred dot be famous course about names, the national incident management system. This system defines the principles that guide incident, response and recovery the two hour course teaches the principles and characteristics of names as well as describing activities and methods of managing resources, including communications and Information Systems. You can search the ICS names courses by searching on the course numbers at training dot fema dot gov slash I s completion of ICS one hundred. I S seven hundred is a prerequisite for taking e C zero, zero, one, a are ells introduction to emergency communications, course, which is designed to provide basic knowledge and tools for any emergency communications volunteer. The course includes required student activities and thirty five question, final assessment and takes approximately forty five hours to complete over a nine week period.

"Through some elaborate steps that no sane individual wants to undertake and third balanced line must be kept a few inches away from large pieces of metal clearly. Balanced Line isn't great for all applications but for the antenna were describing in this article one that can cause high. Swr In the feed line balanced line is not only great. It's ideal moving on to one of the issues other feature articles a look at public service. It's time to talk a little bit about one of the main reasons for Ham radios existence being of service to our communities. I spent some time talking to Brenda Plummer K. D. Nine. Gd Ex a HAM. Who's been involved with him? Radio Public Service for several years about her experiences and what advice she could offer to Hams who want to get into public service. Here's what Brenda had to say. I'm talking with Brenda plummer. K. D. Nine. Gd Ex of Fort Wayne Indiana friend. Thanks so much for coming on the PODCAST. Oh absolutely I enjoy promoting my hobby a wonderful opportunity to so when did you get licensed April of two thousand sixteen was so you're a relatively new him? It'll be almost four years and what license cost you currently hold. I am a general. So how did you first get involved in public service radio? I belong to a club here in my town and we're lucky enough to have the legacy district. Emergency Coordinator is one of the members at our club. There was an event coming up and they needed volunteers. We had no idea what it was a day. We had available and said can you explain a little bit and then we said okay. Well we'll join. We'll help you out with that one. So on that particular event my husband and I did partner up because neither one of us knew what we were doing. And that way if somebody didn't if one of us didn't hear something the other one would so but after that done my My stations by myself since then. What kind of event did that ended up being? That was a fundraiser walk. I don't recall which one maybe breast cancer luck or a march of dimes walk. It was Very large community event in the downtown of the city. I think we've probably had somewhere around. Twelve fifteen hams stations wealth around. Do you remember what you were? Tasked with that event I was just one of the people on a corner. It was an intersection where people could possibly go the wrong direction and where there was a little bit of traffic and although we don't stop traffic if we can help it at least we can pull back the runners lockers so that they're they're safe. We want to make sure everyone is kept safe at the and so that was your first event. Yes and how many events would you say you've done since then I probably do? I'm thinking maybe four a year since then we work well with another county to the west of us and they have a believe it's a state park and there's a lot of Races that are run there in the woods and we help out with those quite often and are there different tasks that you're assigned these different events. Do you find yourself doing different things. From event to event or similar things for the most part similar at the last event I was point of contact which follows around you kind of go between between the event coordinator and the HAM radio. So there's a question when a message or a question comes through. Somebody NEEDS SUPPLIES SOMEWHERE. Or there's a question on Maybe a route change or corner or something like that. The point of contact is the one who goes to the events coordinator and asks them and realize it back to the hands who relays it back then to the people out in the field. How much training if any had you done before participating in your first public service activity in the first public service Event I did not have any training. We hadn't even been to an event and seen what the hands did that particular one. They held a meeting if before it just met at McDonald's for breakfast before the event went over the routes the map the tactical names the shifts. And even though everybody's being assigned there's the chance you'll be reassigned if someone's radio won't reach from a certain point on the rally so that helped because we were able to ask questions then quite a few of them now we do. All of our prepping Via email before the event. So you can ask your questions. If you don't know anything maps or e mailed out the lost as emailed out the frequencies that you're gonNA use during the event that's all sent to you can program your radio in advance. You don't have to worry about getting there the day of and trying to remember how to program radio or anything like that so zero training before that but a lot of I think we've kind of changed how we do it so we don't do it all last minute. Is there anything that you wish you had known when you first got involved That's that's a perfect question for you to ask me because I wish I had known a lot more and so therefore I offer every time there's an event coming up I offer on the the evening nets on the radio. I offer at the club meetings. Anyone who's interested. Come join me for part of my shift. You don't have to do the whole thing but come and sit with me because you can see how what we do. You can see the equipment I bring with me even if it's just umbrella in a chair because that's might not be something you would think of but come sit with me see what we do and then the next time when something comes up. These people are not afraid of volunteering. Because it's not a complete unknown them so I wish I had had that opportunity beforehand so therefore I do that now for every event and the last event I did I actually had three People who They offered one ended up with a schedule conflict. The two people who did come out and go around with me and then I passed them off to others so they could see all the different jobs that are done during a public service events. Do you have any advice for new hymns who want to be involved in public service or maybe folks who have been Hams for a long time but I've never done public service Number one would be just what I just said. Find someone. That's already doing it and go work with them. Don't think you have to do it yourself on the first. Try another one If you go onto the A. R. L. websites search of Areas A. R. E. S. Amateur Radio Emergency Services. The very first one that POPs up you can click on that and it kind of walks you through the different rankings. Different levels you have get a better understanding of what public service events are. Ask A lot of questions. There's people out there who have. Maybe they're not voluntary now that they've done in the past and were no the area or have participated in the race itself. But ask a Lotta questions and don't be afraid of what you're asking. Everyone in. This hobby is wonderful understanding that we all started out at the beginning. We all knew nothing when we started. I'm I'm a little bit on the oh I'm not OCD. But I really do like to have the papers in front of me and so when I hear of an event going on. I'll pull up that fundraiser. I'll pull up a previous race. That was run in that area. And just kind of look at it and see. Oh that's run in the morning and okay. That was an all day event. You know I hear about what the event is going on. I do a little bit of research online alone so that I'm not blindsided by the fact. Oh these are four hour shifts instead of two hours And what I mean by. That is very rarely. Are you expected to do the entire day of an event by yourself? Most of the time they break it up because they know we. You know everybody's got a life and you can't always help your event okay. I have one more question. You mentioned that public service is your favorite thing to do in amateur radio. There's so much to do. An amateur radio. What is it about public service? That makes it your favorite thing. Okay we are all standing on the road. We've got a vest on. We're the person the participants in the event. They're looking just not necessarily looking for us but they make note of that were there. They know that they are safe. That if they wipe out if they get down the wrong path wrote a differently if they feel sick. They know there's someone there to help them. And they are so appreciative of that you can be standing on your station. Watching the runners go by and they will stop and sank us because they are. We are taking care of them. We have one here called. It one hundred hundred mile race. It's run all through the night and I really like that. When the athletes they are incredible people to me and yet they're stopping and thanking us for helping them. It's it's such a wonderful feeling to know that we can do that for them. I can't run a race. I can't bandage elect. I can do this for them. Well that's wonderful well. Thank you so much Brenda for taking the time to to talk to me about what it is about him. Radio Public Service that you enjoy and how newcomers to it can get involved. I think everyone should try it. I think you'll like it but I think everyone should at least try to an experience definitely an experience. I hope you've enjoyed this episode of the on the air podcast which took a deeper dive into material from January February. Twenty twenty issue of on the air magazine. The on the air podcast will be back in March to give you a closer look at articles found in the March April. Twenty twenty issue of the magazine. In the meantime feel free to send comments.

"Hold materials or components in place while you do delicate work on them. The photos in steps two and three. If this article show a third hand tool that we sort of snuck in there it's made out of one piece of wood and two short lengths of fourteen gauge. Wire it's very simple. You can make yourself in about fifteen minutes and it will hold that S O two three nine. Kovacs connectors steady. While you're soldering the wires onto it so what this is is a short length of two by four standing on one of its narrow lengths a whole just. The size of the connector has been drilled in about an inch from the end to make a seat for the connector. A five eighths drill bit. We'll get the job done here. You can plot the connector right into that hole and it won't budge while you're working on it. You can also drill through the thickness of the wood and thread a piece of the fourteen gauge wire. Through the whole to make wire arms that can wrap around the wires. You need to solder to the connector and hold them in place while you do the job you can get instructions building this third hand tool on the on the air blog at A. R. L. Dot Org Slash. Ota Hyphen blog while. We're on the subject of soldering wires for this ground plane. Antenna Project A. R. L. Senior Lab Engineers Zach. Lau W one V. T. pointed out that during step three when you're soldering the element wire into the center pin of the S O. Two three nine Kovacs connector. You need to be careful not to melt the plastic. That's inside the connector. That plastic is there to act as an insulator between the center pin. And the body of the connector Zach recommends covering the plastic with a small piece of foil or wet cloth to help keep it from melting moving on to the January February twenty twenty issues other project build article one wire many bands. We have another super simple antenna. A wire antenna known as a random length dipoto that will work on several H F or high frequency bands. Here's some background information from editor in chief and on the air senior editor. Steve Ford. Wb Eight. I M Y. Steve says the reason. We can use this antenna on several different bands without worrying about how long the wires are is the type of feed line. We're using to carry the RF energy between your radio and your antenna. The feed line for this antenna is windowed line which looks like a thin strip of Brown plastic ribbon with windows cut into it. Each edge of the ribbon has a wire encased in it window line has very low energy loss even when the standing wave ratio or SWR is high. And if you need an explanation of swr check page seventeen of the January February issue the Swr of this antenna will change on every frequency. You use it on even if the SWR is quite high. At times it won't matter at least as far as the antennas feed line is concerned. Thanks to the fact that windowed line has very low losses. The secret of a low loss is in the fact. That line is electrically balanced which means that the energy field generated by the currents in the wires. Interact and cancel each other as a result very little energy escapes into the surrounding area in coaxial cable. Another popular type of feed line. The fields are not balanced which means there is little cancelation taking place to reduce loss. That's why co ax is called an unbalanced feed line so if balanced line is so great. Why don't we use it for all our antenna connections? Could Question Steve. Wbai I M. Y says balanced feed lines have a few disadvantages. I unlike coaxial cable..

"Welcome to the on the air. Podcast the companion to on the air magazine. A NEW BI monthly magazine from A. R. L. For beginner to Intermediate Ham radio licensees. I'm your host and the editor of Almere magazine. Becky SCHOENFELD W one B X Y. every month. The army air podcast extend material found in on the air magazine to help you learn about the many things the Ham Radio Service and Hobby has to offer February twenty twenty hints from the Premiere Issue. Buzz and excitement about the premiere issue of on the Air January February twenty twenty is still going so we're going to take this episode to dive a little deeper into some of the material found the issue in the January February twenty twenty issue of on the air. We gave you a project build. Article called extend your handhelds range with a simple ground plane antenna. This is one of the simplest antennas you can build. It's made out of some fourteen gauge electrical house wire and a female S O. Two three nine chassis mount coaxial connector to make the antenna. You cut the wire into three pieces. That are the appropriate length for the frequency that you want to get on. And then you solder those lengths of wire to the coaxial connector. We gave you some step by step instructions with pictures that illustrate the steps. Step one gives you some help on how to cut the lengths of wire that you need to make the antenna step two shows you how and where to place the wires that will make the radials of the antenna. The radios are the antennas ground. Return that completes the circuit and gives the RF energy a path back to your radio and in step three we show you how. And where to place the element wire into that s? O Two. Three nine coaxial connector radiating element is the center conductor of an antenna steps. Two and three requires some soldering and for this project. You're soldering some relatively small pieces. That can be tricky to work with on their own. Never MIND WHEN YOU'RE APPLYING HOT CIDER. To them there are times when building any kind of project when we wish we had another set of hands to hold materials steady while we work on them. In fact there are many helper tools out there often known as third hands fixtures or jigs that you can buy to help yourself.

If you turn the page we've got the editors there's no from yours truly along with the list of a our resources and the from our readers page which is your typical letters to the editor. After that we've got got a section called on frequency which you'll see in every issue presenting bite size pieces of information such as useful product upcoming events. Cool things you can can do with radio news briefs and more following that we have our regular up-close piece which is a short Q.. And A. Interview with a newer ham in the the first issue were highlighting Jeremy Hong K. D..

First step we have a piece on repeaters your friends in high replaces. which is our radio technology feature in this issue? Quite a few hands get their start on repeaters and this article gives you an overview about what they are and and how they work after that we move into a couple of project build articles.

"E can use to fly around the world for bookings in premium cabins in just eleven days. So it's is this podcast is going out on. The seventh of September on the eighteenth of September corners is going to be putting up the prices. So now's a really good time to be making. You know his his Qantas bookings if if you need to travel anywhere in the next year so you have you. You've got quite a balance of quotas points. Leona view being making any bookings to take advantage of their current pricing. We'll we'll have thanks to you and to be quite honest with you. I always thought the highest use of quotas points was emerson's class but you you showed me much less dunant that in fact an equal possibly better use of the points was to use it to book business business-class on this one world classic reward. So yeah we did that recently and it was. It was actually quite mind blowing because the way that we pace replaced together the itinerary is effectively two trips. That I have have to make next year and I'm doing it on one booking which is quite astounding and we did cover the one classic flat reward in a previous previous episode of the podcast but it does allow you to fly around the world. But it's not actually around the world award. That's a bit of a misconception is with the krisflyer equivalent for for example they have a star alliance around the World Award. You actually have to travel around the world and you have to cross each of the oceans once in said ECON- backtrack in the same way that you can with the one with the one motor would basically get thirty five thousand miles of flying distance to play with and you get up to five stopovers and what you do with those thirty. Five thousand miles is entirely up to you. As long as the you know the various roles like you have to travel on at least two one would airlines Qantas and so on. But Yes Leon for you you you leaving God when I needed to travel to Monterrey and then about a month later on a completely separate trip to Helsinki wrote Especially in the case of Monterey. It's about as far away from Darwin as he can get but you manage to get both of those troops in under the thirty five thousand mile limits. How did you do that well? I mean I'd like to take credit for it mad but you're right there behind me helping me along the way so look. The first thing we did was look for flight from Darwin Alan Down to Sydney Melbourne Brisbane. And then from there we had to play around with getting across the ditch being the the Pacific Ocean now every time I've looked for Qantas availability across the Pacific. I've found nothing but for it. You must have been a lucky charm because because when we looked at it the other day was availability all over the place So we we looked at LAX and also Dallas which was available available from lax from Melbourne. In the end due to a couple of little quirky. Things that happened with the booking we ended up having to go with Sydney to Dallas and then I needed to tackle a a trip from Dallas to Monterrey right which is only an hour and a bit journey. But I'm sure you have a question to ask me about that. We lift Monterey off that of that booking because we would have wanted to stay within the thirty five thousand mile limit so then the knicks pot of it was to make move away from Monterey to Seattle. I think was that right. Yes because because it's hard to find seats from lax back across to Asia. So Seattle San Diego. I think where you preferred food places to look we had to San Diego booking but To Take your advice met in to ensure that the listeners take your advice as swirl is that when you see something you need to grab it because that one seat from San Diego to Narita disappeared in twenty four hours that we were looking at for it looking looking at it so we head to head up to Seattle. There was some availability from Seattle with J. L. Across to Narita and then down to Singapore. And that was one part of booking done. Yeah and of course he come back to Australia in the middle of the trip. ECON if you studying the trooping ECON in stopover in Darwin Midway through the tree then go away the season come back again. So that's that's why if anyone's wondering why he's Stopping over in Singapore in the middle in between the two troops. And then you just Looking in a positioning flight from Singapore back to him back to Singapore right correct. Because then the monthly go to Helsinki and so as part of that process we looked for availability. Ability from Singapore to Helsinki which we found on Qatar Business Class Via Doha Accord Nice timed flight. Arriving arriving in Helsinki do what I need to do there. And then flying back via a will using Phoenix and we couldn't find Phoenix back to a and we couldn't. We couldn't fly to Singapore's those rule against as we can't have you can't stop over twice in the same city as they. Because he already had that stopover in Singapore who needed to finish the trip somewhere else. And there's no one world airlines flying from Asia to to get one road availability from Helsinki when it would have required glad flying probably by a role. Melvin I'll see me which would have completely non out the mileage and we wouldn't have had enough miles to work with right so we then looked to Kuala Lumpur will which female wasn't flying to those novell ability at least so. We found one to Bangkok so from Helsinki Bangkok on and then Bangkok down to Colombo on Malaysian Airlines. And then obviously buying one way ticket on Silkair from Malaysia. Back to Yes there's a little bit of fiddling around with positioning flights And various parts but on the Hollywood basically able to get a two hundred and eighty thousand corners points to business class lung. Hold on trips round trips through. I mean two hundred and eighty thousand points would would be if you went to would pretty much what you pay just to go to from Australia to Europe and back once it's not not a bad deal and it could use of the one world award in quotas points points notoriously high high number points required to do anything so the fact that you could do this really opened. My eyes is up to what's available and what's out there where the taxes on booking like. This was fourteen hundred. which didn't surprise me for Qantas you now? You can repay some pretty high taxes. Full flying on that network would spread was between Dallas and and he'll seek he though but I was happy to pay fourteen hundred four to business close local trips. Yeah Qantas as we know is gain to be decreasing the carrier charges payable on long haul premium cabin Qantas flights on the eighteenth. Ten percents kind of going some way to compensate for the increase increase in the number of points or client thoughts on that. Do you think that's a good thing. Of course it's a good thing to drop. Drop the carry charges. I mean look when you so you know when when the frequent flyer programs fist release way back when there was no such thing as carrier charges both answered and Qantas absorbed everything and US telling you the other day that you could fly around Australia back in the day for thirty for thirty thousand points in In economy from memory right round strategy with as many steps as you liked or Or thirty six thousand points business and it was that was either quantity or rain. Sit and there were no charges or fuel charges or any other charges or if those charges were absorbed by the airlines. We've have gone from. That does good old days to now where not only do you have these fuel charges and other charges. But you've also got these charges just for the sake of reminiscent Intel listeners. What would a book for that? Thirty thousand was an set Zayd Cynthia back before instant went under and that was around about nine hundred ninety nine I did this. We we flew from Brisbane to Townsville Townsville to Keynes. Keynes across to Darwin Dow down to Alice Springs L. Springs to Israel Israel to Sydney and Sydney back to Brisbane as incredibly definitely nowadays. Take and how did you find the experience of booking. Your one would would award it was diabolical in one would. It wasn't so difficult to actually go through the pro. Says and obviously with your assistance met the multi Stop was the way to go not around the world. This is a common mistake actually made by people when they're trying to book one of these awards. It's that's why I said before. It's kind of a misconception exception that this is around the world award is actually not you can use it to travel around the world a lot of times paper. We go to the Qantas website. And they'll see this multi CD option and is around the world option. If you click around the world it takes you to the one world explorer until and that's the page around the world fair which is a completely different product. So yeah you do need to go to the multi CD book into the what happened when you put all the flights into the multi city till the fifth time we did it we got to the last page and it just failed Basically can't even even remember what the message was this before putting the credit card details before before right yeah so just came up with a contact. It's kind the with the message was it was just. It hasn't worked you go to start again. They'll call the call center or something like that C- call center. Cool the cool center. Oh that tell the chestnut and of course we know you and I discussed this last time. What was on your podcast? Depending on which time of the day you ring will dictate right. What Call Center you you go through and I think I could be wrong but I think the call center that we would direct it to was in the Philippines? The person on the other line took all the details and basically called me back and said that there was no availability for everything except for the beginning and end and flights which is titled Nonsense which which didn't surprise me in the least and so we decided how to hang up and start again and because we changed one of the routines instead of flying out of San Diego because it was no longer available we flew out of and Seattle and all of a sudden put it in and it worked and I think he was just a surprise as it worked and we booked it and paid for it and it's all locked in ticket. Now look to check. Did you say hi to check to see if it was confirmed before. Yeah Quanta sometimes is not particularly fast at ticketing. Though at least you were reservation opinion. They'll give you a reservation straight away but Until you actually receive the ticket from Qantas. It's not ticketed if it takes more than a few days. Some of the pondering lines might actually cancel some flights out. Say You'RE GONNA make sure that it's ticketed rather other than just can't stand but I'm sure you'll be finally I want to thank you. Know you've got a separate business to this colder older frequent flyer solutions and I. I would definitely recommend to your uses that it is an absolutely fantastic service that you've got there and they I should use it. If even if they know how to do this they could use it just to save time because you are a complete master at putting these things together in very requ.
