A bumper week and an extra special weekend with over 8000 reported contacts, slightly more on Saturday than Sunday!!
A different top DX every day and top spotting done by N7DB and W3LPL. Terrific stuff.
Carlos, PY2XC , says “Got an awesome spot in the cluster from VK6DU. First report from VK land in more than 20 years! Unfortunately no QSO was made because of Asian CB QRM. Things are happening!” Monday September 24th evening was fantastic. Worked a lot of JA and ZL4AS, Also heard DU7DRU at 23:20 UTC. Hope Solar Flux Index stays above 130! Worked ZL4AS 599, JA1OYD 579, JA1QOW 599, JA2FEA 579, JA4FKX 549, JA6BRV 579, JA7QVI 599, JA8XQI 599, JE4CIL 599, JF7XKY 599, JF8 QNF 599 and JH0INP 599 ”.
VK5MRD, Dave , has been getting his contacts by drip feed, one or two at a time. “Friday, I could hear lots of US stations today, some were strong but most were quite weak. Also heard a weak Brazil station.
Some stations that were heard were:- WA5IGG, KC6L, S57S and JH3JHI.
Just one station worked N4DPU. Time was once again against me.
Sunday, not a lot of time today behind the mic but I did manage three QSOs but I did hear many many stations out there today in the short time that I was near my radio.
Stations heard in no particular order:- ZL2WL, XE2EX, W6SM, WH0AI, K4SX, N6SS, KK7JS, 6Y1X, W5BVM, FO4BM, KH6DX, JH8XVH, VE6MV, PU2TWA, N3QVB, N0AH, VE7SV, E51USA, KH6RC, WA6DYI. Stations worked were:- K8HFX, V73AX and KH7DX.
Monday, stations heard were:- JA2IGY/b, JR0YAN/b, VK8VF/b, 5B4CY/b, SV5TEN/b, RX9CCO, VK3FZ and VK3JEF both on back scatter. Stations worked were:- JA8COE/7, JA6WIF and A41KJ.”
Here is my report for Wednesday. I only worked one station today but I hope to work a few tomorrow as I am taking the day off work as it is my birthday! Just because I have a day off for my birthday tomorrow it doesn’t mean I will get to play radio. I am sure my wife has a 1001 jobs install for me Hi Hi. But I do hope to get some radio time in.
Stations heard were:- 9W2VVH, EX2EX, N6SS, KB0EO, H44RK, CT5KAO, 3D2C, CU7MD I could only just make him out and there was a DF station too that was too weak. I worked P29FR. I just checked 15m and there are quite a few Ireland and UK stations.”

MI0MSR, Melvin was active on PSK over the weekend and bagged some good contacts. TA1BZ, F4GWY, WQ9Z, CT1ETP, DK5EP and DB1NWA.
Andy, M0HLT, was also raving about the weekend. “In the best part of 10 years, I've never heard California on 28mhz (KC6SWL) or YB0AZ in Jakata,he was very stronge at times,as was the AD7KG 10miles south of Salt Lake city, obviously I done more listening than transmitting, But what a weekend of DX that was to be had, but as I am working away Monday to Friday, I had to concentrate on the "misses" she had after all travelled over 60 miles on Friday night(home QTH)to see me, as we had not seen each other all week, all stations heard / worked on a Highgain AV12AVQ tri-bander ground mounted vertical, and also being located on the North coast of Cornwall (South west UK) IO70 locator square, Helps!! Saturday I worked 5B4AIF (Norman) Cyprus-10fm simplex! he was 5/9 +60db and R3BA in Moscow SSB and I heard AD7KG, KC6SWL, YB0AZ, RA3EA, PT9ZE & W9XB. I obviously did more listening than transmitting over the weekend, but what a weekend of DX to be had, paths seemed mainly EAST-WEST, see what we find this weekend when I get home from working away for another week! (dam bankers) just to keep working (Electrician)”

Sun: 7 sunspot clusters but the sun is actually fairly quiet geomagnetically. But there does seem to be a very active site emerging from the eastern side.
Astronomy forums are buzzing with speculation about newly-discovered Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON). Currently located beyond the orbit of Jupiter, Comet ISON is heading for a very close encounter with the sun next year. In Nov. 2013, it will pass less than 0.012 AU (1.8 million km) from the solar surface. The fierce heating it experiences then could turn the comet into a bright naked-eye object.

Well we (Stoke City) lost 1 – 0 to Chelsea in the last five minutes of the game and we missed some chances. There you go. Swansea at the Britannia Stadium, I just hope for a good trip up, a handsome win and a good trip back.
