TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - 6/12/2012

14:39 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments




December 6 , 2012



A very poor week including Saturday, almost back to 2 year ago levels.
But then came Sunday! I left the contacts at 3 or more so that the contrast between Sunday and the rest of the week is very apparent.
5T0SP (Mauritania) and 7P8D (Lesotho) vied for top spot all week with 5T0SP probably just edging it. Others were ZL9HR (Campbell Island), J79WTA (Dominica-Is) and lots more.
Arie, 9W2VVH sent a report in for last week, working VK8HW 55/57, H44MS 55/55, 7P8D 59/59, 5T0SP 59/59 & ZS4A 56/59 on Monday 27,2012 – “3 new dxcc QSOs - Solomon Is, Leshoto & Mauritania.”Thanks Arie.
Paul, VK5PAS worked VU2XO 5/9, EA9KB 5/9 and SP3GXH 5/9 on Friday.He says, “I didn't hear too many stations on the short path this evening, but the few stations that I did work were very strong. Patel VU2XO with his normal very strong signal. Also worked a new country, Enrique EA9KB on Ceuta & Melilla.”
Then he worked S53OQ 5/9, IW9HRZ 5/7, DK1MAX 5/9, F8NAN 5/5, OE5CNO 5/7, 9A7JCY 5/7, HA3HV 5/8, OE8SKQ 5/9, EU1A 5/7, UA1ORK 5/8 and 9A202NA 5/9 on Sunday. “Lots of activity and good signals on the short path which were quite stable with very little QSB.”
On Monday he says, “I worked SP8AWL who was a good signal on the SP, and then Steve M1BJR and was soon joined by John M0JWK & Peter G2YT, for a good chin wag. Very good signals.” Wednesday he worked SP7HKK 5/7, SP8AWL 5/9, DJ8OG 5/8 and RA3QPY 5/9 and heard VK6APZ. “Not much activity heard on the 10m band this evening on the short path. Quite a bit of QSB on the signals. I did hear VK6APZ in Western Australia working a pile up from Europe but the European signals were very low to me.”
Nothing from our other VK5, Dave. The dog business must be hotting up just in time for Xmas.

Sun: Just three sunspots none of which is blazing away.
Dec. 3rd, Jupiter makes its closest approach to Earth until 2021. The giant planet rises at sunset--it looks like a very bright star--and soars overhead at midnight. If you have a backyard telescope take a look! If there are clear skies it will be well worth a look for some while.
The Geminid meteor shower is due to peak on the 13th December but may be seen any time from the 4th to the 17th. This year there is a prediction of 120 per hour.

Aha, Stoke City win away at West Brom. Next Saturday is Aston Villa also away, we need the points.
