TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - June 6, 2013

22:12 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments










A fine week, for me any way.
The IC7600 marches on and I even attached a key (morse) to it.
So great things are expected before too long (cough splutter).
I now have e-qsl and lotw up and running. Not much on them, yet.
ZW7R (Special call Brazil) was probably top at least at the weekend.

VK5MRD has not been too lucky of late, 9W2MZY worked last Thursday and ZS6CX, VK4CQ and VK6AKT on Monday.

Hafizi, 9W2TZW , worked IT9CLU 5/9, HZ1PS 5/9, F4HEC 5/9, CT4GD 5/9, EA8JK 5/9 and VK2NSS 5/9 on Sunday. Hafizi says “I only work 10m but am hoping to upgrade.” No need Hafizi, you are already on the best band!

On Thursday Nazmi 9W2GSG worked IT9CNF 5/9, EA5TA 5/8, IT9AQR 5/8, IT9CLU 5/9, IS0DCR 5/9, IC6CLZ 5/9, IT9CFP 5/8, EA8OB 5/9, IZ7DOK 5/9. He says, “This is my 1st time report to you”. But not the last we hope. All reports even negative ones are always welcome.

Andy VP8DOH/M0HLT says, “In the middle of my 5th week down here. Propagation was not good in this part of the world, I worked CX, CE,LU and PY stations and a EA8 nothing into Europe otherwise however, into the Isle of Man, I think? it was MD0CEE? otherwise not too good over the weekend.I’m working the next 2 weekends so may not be QRV, although listen out for Roger, VP8DBR / G0SWC , who's also working here.”

Sun: Five sets of sunspots with a couple that might flare, don’t hold your breath.

Was the latest asteroid pass by an event or what?
“The radar imagery revealed that 1998 QE2 is a binary asteroid. In the near-Earth population, about 16 percent of asteroids that are about 655 feet (200 meters) or larger (F’in big) are binary or triple systems.

Radar images suggest that the main body, or primary, is approximately 1.7 miles (2.7 kilometers) in diameter and has a rotation period of less than four hours. Also revealed in the radar imagery of 1998 QE2 are several dark surface features that suggest large concavities. 


The preliminary estimate for the size of the asteroid's satellite, or moon, is approximately 2,000 feet (600 meters) wide.”
 (NASA)
That is still one big banging asteroid and its back in a couple of hundred years. More details here Asteroid.
England managed a lacklustre friendly draw away against Brazil.
No friendly is the same as a game with stakes. But you can’t bet if you’re a footballer.
