TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT

5 july 2012
If I thought last week was bad then this week was worse. Just Sunday came to the rescue. TA2TR did a good job spotting but there was some DX about.
GP3ZME/P (Telford club’s DXpedition to Guernsey), TM0CEZ (expedition to Cezembre, Agot and Harbour Islands), D2QR (Angola) and 3G90AA (anniversary of the Chile Radio Club). There were quite a few stations with 2012 in their calls.
An interesting note from Kris, 2E0KKB. He says,
“Hi, just to let you all know, I am running a 10m beacon twice a day on 28.260 @ 25w, the times will be 10:00 am to 10:30am & 15:00pm to 15:30. This will be first time as I’m testing the water. I am disabled so it will give me a break to do some phone stuff. If any one hears it please EQSL me. All my details are at qrz.com.”

Good on yer Kris. I’ll have a listen for that myself. Kris is in Chippenham.
And guess what? BigDave (the Dog), VK5MRD, just squeezed one contact in between pandering to pooches, 9W2VVH on Tuesday.
It must be catching or something in the water. Arie 9W2VVH says,
“I also got "Just 1" QSO syndrome. Today (Tuesday July 2) only QSO with our big brother Dave VK5MRD in vy good audio. He was beaming to NA but 59 cpi in my base stn. Other "Just 1" QSOs on Sunday July 1 - EG7NU 57/59, Friday June 30 - TJ3AJ 55/57& Thursday June 29 - IK6DTB 54/57.”

So who needs QSL cards when you can get confirmation of contact via this column!
Bob, N2MDA , sent in a US field day report. Thanks Bob, if only we could have ours at the same time as yours. Though I’m glad we didn’t this year as we’ve had very wet weather. But then Bob also had problems. Read on.
Here in the States Field Day was a blast. Of course 40 20 and 15 meters carried the bulk of the QSO's. 10 meters here was as dead as 6 meters was. The Port Saint Lucie Radio Club in Florida had 4 HF stations running along with a "Big Gun" station on 6 meters, but no takers. We made a lot of contacts on HF and had some awesome ribs smoked on the Bar B Que. Tropical storm Debbie made the Take down of antennas and towers a real soaker for all of us, but we loved it. We even had a VE session and one of our Technicians upgraded to General Class. With the wind we decided not to put up the HF Beam and went with G5RV's at 40 feet instead. Smart call, too!”

Sun: 4 sunspot clusters with 1513 and 1515 being the biggest and they may give us some solar flares.
Summer is a good time to relax, sleep late, enjoy a break from school or work. Waking before sunrise is just not done.
This summer is a little different. To find out why, set your alarm for dawn. Every morning this July, the two brightest planets in the solar system will put on a show before sunrise. Look out any east-facing window to see Venus and Jupiter, shining side by side, so close together you can hide them behind your outstretched palm. Visit NASA at July Dawn for the full SP.
The Olympics approaches. The government has stopped all road works in London so traffic will not get diverted. Hope they can do something about the weather which has been a tad WET.
At least we (England) beat the Aussies for the second time in an ODI. (One Day International). Three more to go if we can squeeze them in between the rain showers.
