December 20, 2012


Even worse than last week. So sparse in fact that if Monday through Friday were all put together, it wouldn’t equal Saturday or Sunday.
Not one station was dominant all week. E51E (South Cook Is), XU1A (Cambodia) and CD8KD (Morocco) were popular. Our friend, VU2DSI, Data, was 2nd up on Sunday.
I was right about VK5MRD, Dave. Xmas is a big time for his business. 
“I have not been on much lately as I am so busy with work. Leading up to Christmas is my busiest time of the year. I am working 12 hour days 7 days a week and doing between 9 to 12 dogs a day. Yes, working everyday till Christmas. So I have missed so many openings. I had a little bit of time tonight but again my operating time was short once again. So here is my little list for today, Saturday. Stations worked:- IK6CWQ, PD1RK, IK7JWY, IZ7PDX, IT9OPJ, IK8OZZ, OH5BM, GI4SNA, VU2XO, PI4UTR and G3ZQH. There were other stations out there but I just didn't have any time. Sunday I missed most of the opening but I must say a big "Thank You" to Theo VK5MTM for the email re the band opening otherwise I would have missed it all together! Stations heard were:- VK2MOD and VK3GL. Stations worked were:- MW0BER, MW0ZZK and VU2XO
KK4CIS, Alan, worked CN8KD 5/9 F6HKA 5/5 on Sunday (CW) and VE3II 5/9 on data, Friday ZL4PW 4/4. Thanks for the report Alan.
Shankar, A65CR , worked a few. Saturday IZ5HPQ, HA3OK, UR4QQF, ZS2EC, VU2SMS, RL6MA, DL2ROA, UX4MX, UR2VA, FM5WD, UR4MJB, VK6WC, ZL1AAO, VK6EH, IT9OPJ, VK3VCE, OE6CAG, ET3BN, VK5CE, DO3ZI, YE5TA, DG1AAE, S56CW, VU2SMS and XU1A. 
“10m open after a long break. My 50W + Buddipole on the balcony made it up to New Zealand on east and to St Martinez/Uruguay on the west !”
Arie 9W2VVH says, 
“Today Dec 18 - My lucky day wkd with E51E south cook island the only stn responded my cq!. Dec 16 - Wkd new DXCC Sardinia IS0BSR beside JH1CML & VK2CR. Dec 14 - Only 2 stns Vu2SMS & A41NN. Dec 13 - Also couple stns from VKs VK3HK & VK3KHZ. That’s all for now. Jumpa lagi.
VK5PAS, Paul , had a good weekend, again. He worked A41NN 5/7, DO5OT 5/7, G0RBD 5/7, DL9USA 5/9, IK8GJR 5/7, F8ZW 5/9, RK3M 5/9, SM0PRZ 5/6, IK8OZZ 5/9, F6BIA 5/9, YO6PMX 5/9, RA1OD 5/6, PA1JT 5/7, PD3HB 5/5, DO9SMS 5/6, TA4AU 5/5 and GW1MNC 5/5 on Saturday with DK3EE 5/9, DK1MAX 5/7, DL2ROA 5/6, VK4RC 5/7, VK4MON 5/7, DK2LO 5/5, I5ZSS 5/8, UA1ABW 5/7, 9W2AHU 5/4, IZ7MFY 5/9, IT9CZJ 5/5, F4FGC 5/8, IZ5WTV 5/8, LY3A 5/8, IZ8IEV 5/9, SM6NYO 5/8, G0FWX 5/9, EU1A 5/9, DL4NAC 5/9 and UR3CTB 5/8 on Sunday.
“Saturday: excellent conditions on the short path into Australia. Heard a little bit of activity and I decided to put out CQ call and ended up working quite a few stations in the Middle East, Europe, & the UK. Sunday: signals on the short path were quite good during the Australian evening. QSB was only minimal. Unfortunately the usual FM interference from SE Asia which can make reception difficult at times.”

Sun: Five clusters of sunspots but none really active.
Earth has exited the debris stream of rock comet 3200 Phaethon, which brings an end to the annual Geminid meteor shower. On peak night, Dec. 14th, worldwide observers counted more than 100 meteors per hour, many of them fireballs (meteors brighter than Venus). (Spaceweather.com)

Stoke drew 1 – 1 against Everton a skilful team. Just one unpleasant moment, now one of their team is serving a 3-match ban.
