” The 9th edition of the HF Manager’s Handbook now available for download. Thank you to those who commented on the draft version.
This new edition contains mainly changes agreed during the 2008 IARU Region 1 Conference in Cavtat, 2011 IARU Region 1 Conference in Sun City, 2014 IARU Region 1 Conference in Varna, IARU Region 1 Interim Meeting Vienna 2016 and IARU Region 1 Conference in Landshut 2017. Compared to older editions, the structure of the chapters has been revised in order to make content more accessible to interested readers. The HF Manager’s Handbook is intended primarily as a guide for HF Managers. In some cases, you can also use the new handbook as a reference book. And it should also help member societies that want to start their own HF Committee. Therefore, this book containes some historical articles in favor of new representatives of the HF Committee, who may not always know what has happened in the past.
Chapter 1 gives an idea of what the IARU HF Committee is. Chapter 2 provides an overview of recommendations that focus on HF operations – including those for daily use. See Chapter 3 for the current bandplan. For technical standards, see Chapter 4. In Chapter 5 you will find additional documents that do not fit the other categories. And last but not least Chapter 6 gives an overview of changes to previous editions.
A number of chapters have also been transferred across to the main Region 1 website at iaru-r1.org. Also you will find some links to external websites, namely those by the ITU.
The accuracy of this book to a great extent depends on YOU – the user of the book. If you find anything that is wrong, or if you find that something should be added or changed, please tell me. Any ideas for expansions or corrections will be appreciated.
