TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - May 14, 2013

May 14, 2013



Quite a good week and as usual better at the weekend.
A variety of calls topped each day, but VK9NT (Norfolk Is.) was always there about along with loads of others, E20WXA (Bangkok), A35UD (Tonga), 7Q7FOC (Malawi), FO/KH0PR (French Polynesia) to but a few.

Last week VK5MRD’s latest report got missed somehow so here it is. Dave worked 9W2VVH, VU2DSI, N0TW, VK9NT, KH6QR, ZL3MYL, 9M2SE, 9M2RDX and JE1RXJ on the 8 th, 7 th and 2 nd of last week. This weekDave worked ZS3Y, JM7CRW, E51AAO and FR4PF on the 10th & the 12th. As Dave says often, too much work and not enough play.
João, PU2LHA , says, “Very good propagation this morning Thursday between Brazil and Europe.” He managed to work IZ7PDX.
Rob, M0TFO worked a whole raft of stuff on Saturday.
9Z4GB 5/9, HK1T 5/9, ZX5ZZ 5/9, LU5HD 5/9, PU5AEC 5/9, EA8OB 5/8, PY2VI 5/9, 9Z4GB 5/9, PY2RJF 5/9, PY4PI 5/8, LU2EM 5/9, LU4VL 5/9, PU2PZE 5/9, PU3AMB 5/9, PU2UIB 5/9, LU6DC 5/9, LU5DQ 5/9, PY2EX 5/9, PY4HL 5/8, PP5VB 5/9, PY2DPM 5/9, LU4MCS 5/9, LU1DSM 5/9, UO8ICF 5/8, SV1EQD 5/9 and G0AZE 5/5.
He says, “I was having a good run into South America until thunder and lightning at my QTH stopped play. In all 10 Meters was in very good condition.”
My wife always like to ask “Are you playing Radios now?”
And a brief word from Andy, M0HLT
“Callsign confirmed as of last Thursday and it’s VP8DOH.
Operating holiday still, owing to work commitments, although probably will be Saturdays or Sundays, and of course 10 metres if conditions allow? Otherwise anywhere from 20m's and up.”

Sun: 10 sunspot clusters of which a couple may show signs of flaring. Early today we had the strongest flare of the year so far.
Stoke City 10 men lost 1 – 2 to Spurs and the ref in their last home match of the season. Nuf said. Southampton next week, away. A win would be nice but who knows.
