July 11, 2013

You only have to look at the thin daily listings below to realise what a poor week it’s been.
Except for Sunday and once again I couldn’t get much time on air. No real overall top DX but OJ0V (Market Reef) has to perhaps be the most exotic.
“Not much radio-ing done this week”, says Steve, M0STC but he’s ready for a QSO with me so we’ll try Tuesday. Last Tuesday he worked CE4DPX 3/3 PSK31 and EC1DJ 5/9 PSK31.
We did manage to swap a few words on 10m PSK31 but I don’t know as I’d call it a QSO. Conditions were pretty poor.
I’ve started using my GV4CJC call but I only managed a couple of Italian and Spanish contacts conditions are so bad. I worked all these last week up to 4 th July: HA7BA, IW0HOQ, CT2IVH, 9H3RJ, HA3YA, DB3NV, IZ3ETU, CT2HFZ, IW2NOH, EA1LY, EG5DNC and UR5ICG. Then these with my GV4 call: I5/ON7MV/P, IW0GEQ, SQ3PAK, RK6A, IT9AUG, EA8/RW3DO, EA1LY, IZ4ZZB, IK8DYE, IQ2CY and IK4MGV again mostly PSK31.

Sun: Sunspots AR1785 and AR1787 are defying the odds. Despite the fact that both sunspots have unstable magnetic fields laden with energy for strong flares, solar activity remains low. Maybe it is the calm before the storm. (Space weather.com)

Didn’t the Lions do well, an emphatic victory. So now the Ashes start. Bring on the Aussies, NOW.
