RAC Confirms IC’s Responsibilities

[html] Subject: [RAC-Bulletin] RAC Bulletin #2008-13: Erroneous E-mail Sparks Petition – RAC Confirms IC’s Responsibilities
On 18 May 2008, a petition began circulating on the Internet that quotes an unsigned e-mail from the Toronto District Office of Industry Canada (IC)
stating that Industry Canada is no longer the  regulatory body overseeing the amateur radio service, and that amateur radio is self-policing.
Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) contacted IC on 20 May, the first working day after the petition began. IC have confirmed that its contents are incorrect.
IC clearly affirmed they are the regulatory authority for Amateur Radio in Canada. The originator of the petition, Eddie Pereira VA3EDP, has since received a message from the acting Director of IC’s Toronto District Office confirming that the original unsigned e-mail was sent in error. Eddie will be meeting an IC official in the near future to discuss a spectrum
management issue that was the cause of his initial inquiry with IC.
RAC asks all Canadian Amateurs to contact RAC first if they have specific concerns about IC’s willingness or ability to supervise the Amateur Radio Service. RAC is here to serve the interests of all Canadian Amateurs and we will do our best to ensure IC listens to our concerns.

Rail Gun

[html] "navy_rail_gun_small.jpg"This is a new "rail gun" the US navy is testing on one of their ships..It uses a electromagnetic field pulse to shoot a projectile over 200 nautical miles… It takes 3 million amps to shoot his thing for each projectile..The kinetic energy of a solid projectile hitting something at this speed is equal to a cruise missle hitting it, but a lot cheaper to use…
The average ordinary 15 inch gun now can only shoot around 15 nautical miles… The energy needed to shoot the solid projectile at mach 8 is around 32 megajoules… Its calculated to shoot this gun
6 times per minute the ship will have to supply 16 megawatts of power…They want to achieve a goal of a 64 megajoule weapon which would take a staggering 6 million amps to shoot…
They still need to develop a breakthrough in material construction so that the guns themselves won't be shreaded by each high velocity barrage…
