TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - 16/08/2012

23:21 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments



The weekend of the German contest was good for DX but the rest of the week was lacklustre.
D64K (Comoros) did well Thursday to Sunday along with H44USMC (special event callsign commemorating 70 years since the landing by US Marine Corps troops on Guadalcanal), and YB67RI (67th Independence Day of Indonesia). Just loved their logo.

 
VK5MRD managed a few more this week.
“Here is my quick list for Sunday. Just caught the end of an opening. I heard many other stations, it was quite a dog pile for a while. I heard my friend Arie 9W2VVH out there too getting amongst it all.” RY3D , OE3JTB , RX6CC , S52QM and IK6CWQ.
Arie had a good one last Thursday, and worked E20WXA 59/59, 9W2SGN 31/31, EA5GPC 55/55, 9W2GEO 31/31. “Thursday Aug 9 - wkd 2 local stns 9W2SGN & 9W2GEO & sked QSO with E20WXA - nice signal from 6 ele yagi ant long boom

Sun: Just 2 sunspots and no real chance for flares.
After two days of strong activity, the Perseid meteor shower is finally subsiding. For much of August 12-13, meteor rates exceeded 100 per hour. Now, according to worldwide observers, activity is only half that and continues to drop.
We await more hi res photos from the Mars Rover. So far a panoramic view of rocks and a hill.
The Olympics is over with the Para Olympics yet to start. And didn’t “Team GB” do well.
Real footy (not that Olympics apology) re-starts this weekend with the first matches in the Premier League. Stoke City are away to new boys Reading.
