Tony's 10 Metre Band Report - 07/06/2012

17:58 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments







Not even the weekend contest was up to its usual high standards.
A mix of leaders with A5A (Bhutan) the most consistent. Mid-week was very poor.
YW5YL (Isla la Playita, Venezuela) ladies team did well on Saturday. The ladies in the back row look a bit tough.

Wayne, ZL2WL , sent
in a short note.
Hi Tony we are quite active on 10 when the bands open to ZL, work up to 50 plus ph contacts a day.”
Wayne has a 10-10 number too, so that proves he’s the real deal.

Melvyn, MI0MSR , worked a few last Wednesday: OM3ZAS 5/9, HA1DRA 5/9, DB3NV 5/9, DJ4DM 5/9, F5SNZ 5/9, SP3DKH 5/9, DL1BSZ 5/9, SM5LIB 5/9, SP9UXB 5/9. “All worked with my MQ0MSR call using Kenwood TS2000, 40 Watts PSK 31 and a Carolina Windom antenna.”
Paul VK2HV worked a few tasty ones, A5A, SU9VB, YW5YL, FG4NN and W1AQ.
And Dave, VK5MRD, only had time for one big one, KQ6PK.
“Only had 5 mins today so not sure how the band was but I was glad to work Troy with his big booming signal as always!”

Sun: Several sunspot clusters out there but of course the big one this week has been the transit of Venus across the sun not that the UK was particularly well placed to see it. But I hope those of you who could, did.
Sport this week has faded down to give way to the Jubilee events. The weather was poor and I’m sure our old Queen was tired at the end of it all. Now we can get back to normal and worry about the Olympics and how our footy team will do in the Euros.
