Additionally, the national com.
mander asked FCC authorization
for land stations with the provision
for temporary relocation of such
stations to the scene of action or
specific search area and for inter.
communications between land and
mobile stations, such as land-mobile communications.
Emphasizing the need for
changes, General Wilcox said,
"lack of provisions for licensing of
land stations and authority for mobile-to-mobile communications in
the FCC's present rules have been
a serious deterrent to effective
CAPSAR operation."
In a routine SAR mission, the
general pointed out, "direct communications between all elements
of the rescue party, mobile units,
aircraft and walkie-talkies is necessary to assure rescue and medical
aid to distressed persons in the
quickest possible time."
The sought after provisions
would be an effective inducement
to CAP to purchase and license
approved radio equipment as mission control, center and mobile
SAR communications facilities.

The Federal Aviation Agency has advised us that a problem
has developed with communications between private aircraft
and FAA Flight Service Stations using 122.1 MC. This is a oneway air-to-ground frequency ~ind is the one perhaps the most
frequently used by general aviation pilots. The problem occurs
when aircraft at altitudes, above 10,000 feet use it, because the
signals from such aircraft can be heard (and can cause interference) out to 150 miles or more. Since 122.1 MCs is a one-way
channel, pilots seldom listen before talking, which further compounds the problem.
FAA suggests that all aircraft operating at 10,000 feet or
higher (15,000 feet over the Rocky Mountains) avoid using 122.1
MCs and call instead on one of the several simplex frequencies
(122.2, 122.3, 122.8, or 123.6 MCs). See the Airman's Information
Manual (AIM), RF Enroute Charts, or the new Sectional Aeronautical Charts for the specific frequencies at a particular Flight
Service Station.
It is our further suggestion that the frequency 122.1 MCs
not be used at all by aircraft having two-way VHF communications which can be used independently of VHF navigation. Use
the appropriate simplex frequencies (see above). Using the simplex frequencies lets you determine if the channel is in use before you call.
Furthermore, if you do use 122.1 MCs, and have a transceiver
(one that listens on the same frequency that it transmits on)
turn up the volume control so you can hear whether 122.1 MCs
is free of other communications before you start your transmission. The amount of use this channel gets may surprise you, and
convince you that the simplex channels are a better bet.

Glossary of Aviation Terms
AIRWAYS--Designated paths through the airspace consisting of two layers. A lower structure general extends from 1,000
feet above the surface to 18,000. A jet route system extends from
18,000 to 45,0000. Airspace above 45,000 is reserved for point-topoint'flight on a random routing basis.
A LT E R N AT E A I R P O R T - - A n a i r p o r t s p e c i fi e d o n a
flight plan to which a flight may proceed when a landing at the
point of first intended landing becomes necessary.
ALTITUDE -- Height of an aircraft, usually in reference to
Mean Sea Level (MSL).
( AT I S ) - - T h e c o n t i n u o u s b r o a d c a s t o f r e c o r d e d n o n c o n t r o l
information in selected high activity airport terminal areas. Is
available from local VOR station.
A P P R O A C H C O N T R O L ( D E PA R T U R E C O N T R O L ) - - A
service established to control IFR flights arriving at or departing
from, or operating within the vicinity of an airport. The service
utilizes direct radio communication, radar (RAPCON, RATCC),
and affects all IFR traffic in the designated area.
A P P R O A C H L I G H T C O N TA C T H E I G H T ( A L C H ) - - T h e
height on the glide path of an Instrument Landing System (ILS)
from which pilot making an approach can expect to see high
intensity approach lights.
APPROACH SEQUENCE -- The landing sequency established by an air traffic control specialist for two or more aircraft
desiring to land at the same airport.
A R R I VA L - - A n y a i r c r a f t a r r i v i n g a t t h e s a m e a i r p o r t i s
referred to as an arrival.

Golden Rule for Pilots
VIGILANCE -- Plan ahead...
When at the controls, never proceed into an area on the
ground or in the air without double checking for existing or
potential hazards visually and by any other means available.
' CONTROLS AND SYSTEMS -- Plan ahead...
(a) Never operate an aircraft unless you are thoroughly
familiar with the operation and correct use of all controls and
(b) Never start an engine,, cruise, let.down or land
until all prescribed procedures are accomplished from a check
(c) Never operate an aircraft with a known malfunction. If
malfunction occurs in flight, land at the nearest airport.
(d) When flying retractable gear aircraft, never raise flaps
o n l a n d i n g r o l l . Wa i t u n t i l w e l l c l e a r o f a c t i v e r u n w a y t h e n
double check the control you are activating.
(e) Learn conditions conducive to the formation of carburetor ice. Stay alert for this hazard, and use carburetor heat
at the first indication of icing.
(FAA Pamphlet, "12 Golden Rules for Pilots")

ADIZ- Beware!
A sharp rise in the number of general aviation violations of
the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zones (ADIZ's) has prompted
the Air Defense Command to request alerting of pilots to the
FAA regulations covering such flights.
An ADIZ is a block of airspace which runs along the entire
coastline of the United States, beginning about 20 miles offshore
and extending from sea level upward to infinity. Part 99 of the
Federal Aviation Agency Regulations prohibits flight into an
ADIZ without proper clearance by the nearest appropriate aeronautical authority.
Failure to obtain prior clearance may result in an interception by Air Force jet fighters, a fine as high as $1,000 and a
possible revocation of certificate. The great majority (54 per
cent) of unauthorized ADIZ penetrations have occurred off the
Florida coast, where Air Force intercepts have been averaging
nearly one a day. (Excerpts taken from Vol. VIII, NPA Service
Bulletin, National Pilots Association June 1988.)



Summer Activities End
It's over for 1968! Civil Air Patrol's busiest season of
summer activities is at an end.
And it was a busy season! Upwards of 8,(~00 CAP cadets
took part in a wide variety of encampments, orientation

148.2 MHz. Sensitivity is I uV; selectivity 27 kHz at 6 dB down. The transmitter is a hybrid
design using both transistors and tubes. Input power is 18 to 20 watts, AM output power is 8
to 10 watts. Modulation is automatically limited to less than 100~;;. l::requency (143.2 to 148.2
M Hz) is controlled by any one of four crystal positions or an external V FO (crystals not included ;
Heathkit HG-10B VFO at $37.95 drives it perfectly). Circuitry includes 15 transistors, 18 diodes,
ancI 3 tubes; uses 2 circuit boards; assembly requires about 20 hours. 120/240 VAC power supply
is built in as is a 3' x 5" speaker. "Ceramic PTT mic. and mobile gimbal bracket are included.

Complies with new FCC rule establishing .005% freq. tolerance to Jan. 1973.
Switching to SSB for your communications? Here's a transceiver designed especially for CAP
needs at a price you can afford, and it's available in kit or factory assembled form. The new
Heathkit HW-18-1 is a 2-channel SSB transceiver with 200 watts PEP input.., that's talk power
equivalent to 800 watts of AM input. And for compatibility with stations equipped with AM
receivers only, just flip a switch to insert the carrier and operate on AM with 25 watts input.
The HW-18-1 uses crystal filter type sideband generation and operates on upper sideband. And
nothing is easier to operate, just switch-select either of the two crystal-controlled channels and
push the button on the microphone.., no power amplifier tuning, no loading adjustments, no
receiver tuning. Automatic Level Control holds transmitter output constant under varying voice
levels; the built-in meter checks ALC as well as the transmitter plate current and received signal
strength. Trimming capacitors provide easy, exact adjustment of transmitter fi~equency which is
crystal-controlled on both channels with a tolerance of .005 ~. The modern receiver has a sensetivity of 1 uV and a Ciarifier Control corrects the transceive frequency within the tolerance to
assure accurate net operation. The crystal filter IF provides high selectivity to eliminate adjacent
channel interference; the product detector provides clear SSB reception without control juggling;
the Local-Distance switch prevents receiver overload from nearby net stations. The 12 tube
circuit of the HW-18 has a 17 tube function; circuit board and wiring harness makes construction ....
fast and easy. Alignment requires only a voltmeter and ohmmeter. Unit complies with new
FCC rule effective 6-21-68 which establishes a CAP SSB frequency tolerance of
.005% until Jan. 1, 1973 and 50 HZ thereafter.
