TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - 11/01/2013

08:39 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments





Here is the graph showing how the year progressed. It shows the seasonal variations we all know exist.
The vertical (Y) axis is the number of reported contacts that day. The horizontal (X) axis is day (date). One day, 01/01/2012, is missing.

The week was dull on week days but better at the weekend, as is often the case. DX of note E51E (South Cook Is) again, V26BM (Antigua & Barbuda) again, A45XR (Oman) and XV1X (Vietnam). SU9VB (Egypt) popped up on Sunday, it’s been a while.
 
Paul, VK5PAS , wishes us a great Xmas and a happy New Year and on Thursday heard VK2IZI (working Europe), VK7XX, ER4DX and LY1TR. He says, “Not been real active on 10m due to the festive season. Turned on this evening for a listen. Conditions ppor on the SP. Quite a few very light stations. Even Vassily, ER4DX was down to me.”
VK5MRD, Dave caught a good Saturday. “Here is my list for today. Very happy to have worked 4O3A tonight in Montenegro, a new country for me and very easy to work too! Still very busy with work and family commitments. We had 45ºC here yesterday at least it was a little cooler today in the mid 30s, 45 is just way too hot!”
Here’s his catch: S57S, IZ5YHD, HA8FK, RN6HDL, YO9HP, 4O3A, JA1TTW, JA1UYJ, JK6IMF, JN1NYA, JG1IWH, JA9GLW, VK2AET and VK4HIA.
And a short report from Arie, 9W2VVH. “For 2013, so far I only wkd on digimode PSK31 @ 28.120. Latest QSO with JH1DIS on Jan 8, RA0LML (Jan 7), YD2MDU (Jan 4) & UR3CTB (Jan 1).”

Stoke City drew with Crystal Palace in the Cup 0 – 0. The replay is next Tuesday, I shall not bother. Saturday, however, Chelsea visit the Brit and we are unbeaten there in ages.
