April 18, 2013


A phenomenal weekend (10 or more contacts needed), good during the week (five or more needed). Only Wednesday was disappointing.
5W0M (Samoa) was consistently up there for the whole week with VK9CZ (Cocos Keeling Is) and TZ6BB (Mali) just edging him into 2nd on Tuesday and Saturday.
Ronald, ZB2B sent us this interesting information. 
“Tony, just to inform you we have just installed a ten meter beacon on 28.169.7 MHz at the Gibraltar Amateur Radio Society premises. The antenna used is a 1/4 wave ground plane built by John ( ZB2JK ) . The transmitter is a modified old CB radio modified, & kindly donated to us by a visiting Radio Ham friend, Edmondo Conetta, VA3ITA . It transmits 4 watts only, into a 1/4 wave GP antenna. 
Hope your readers will enjoy this info, & signal reports are welcomed. 73, & best regards.”
So listen up every one, reports are needed.

VK5MRD, Dave’s, list for the end of last week JA1QS, YB3EDD, BH4SCF, ZL3MYL, VU2DSI, ZL3MYL, (three times) and early this week Sunday through Wednesday, VU2DSI, W0WP, ZL2UJI, W0NFD, KG5IDX, WA5FWC, AE5YF, ZL3MYL, ZL1LR, VK2BX, YO4RIU, S54E, UR3CTB.

Sun: 6 sunspot clusters with AR1723 having a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class solar flares. It’s fast growing too.
Stoke City are in free fall. We lost, as expected to Manchester United 0 – 2, although we fought all the way. If we don’t beat QPR this Saturday we could well get relegated. I’ll be at QPR to shout.
