TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 25, 2013

April 25, 2013



5W0M (Samoa) was top again in the early part of the week but overtaken by ZK3N (Tokelau Is) till Sunday when PW2D (Brazil special event) came out on top. A43WARD was also popular but the call is not recognised by any databases.

There was plenty of other DX out there, even some UK stations got in the lists. Wednesday was very slow yet again.
I hope to take delivery of a new IC7600 this week. My old faithful TS430S at 30 years old was really well out dated. Next to put up a new antenna and see if I can get in these lists. Might have to have a dabble at the digi modes as well.

And on to this week’s reports.
Tuesday, Sallehan, 9W2SBD worked a shed load of stations. 9A6RMI 5/9, DK1AF 5/9, DL2DT 5/8, DL6MI 5/9, EA2CTQ 5/9, HA3HV 5/9, HZ1BW 5/9, I4ZSQ 5/9, I7WAN 5/8, IK1EVN 5/9, IK1TXM 5/9, IK2TCV 5/9, IK3LDL 5/7, IK8WEJ 5/9, IS0GQX 5/9, IT9CLU 5/9, IV3VCS 5/9, IW1GGR 5/9, IZ0VXF 5/8, IZ1WYO 5/9, IZ2DHM 5/9, IZ2GNQ 5/9, IZ2KSF 5/7, IZ2NBD 5/9, IZ4ORF 5/9, IZ4YFK 5/9, IZ5YHD 5/9, IZ8FDG 5/9, IZ8YWB 5/9, OE3AKB 5/8, OE3DXA 5/9, S56FFE 5/9, SV1ONV 5/7, SV1QEC 5/9, SV2MJY 5/9, SY2AMD 5/7.
He says, “After heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the evening from 18:00 until 19:30 ( UTC ) at Seri Iskandar, Perak, West Malaysia. My lucky day, to work with 36 stations with QRP in 47 minute from 16:11 to 16:55 (UTC) very fantastic day for me. “ Malaysia Boleh” Terima Kasih dan Jumpa Lagi, 73 from 9W2SBD/qrp.” 
Not sure what the last bit means but I’d bet on it being a joyful greeting to us all.

On Wednesday VK2HV, Paul, worked JD1BMH, 8R1AK, LX1HD, SM4EMO, ZK3N, KH2L and TC57A.
Dave , VK5MRD worked a few stations between 22/04 and 24/05. VK6AK, ZL3MYL (fm), KQ6PK, ZL2UJI (fm). He’s a busy lad but not in the rf department.

Most popular DX (three or more contacts, any mode.

Sun: Three sun spot clusters with 1726 being the biggest and with the possibility of flares.

At last not only is the sun out and it looks like spring but Stoke City win a match beating QPR, away and keep a clean sheet. 3 very vital points. Norwich next Saturday at the Britannia Stadium, one for the home fans.
