TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - August 1, 2013

August 1, 2013  
What an extremely poor week. Not even the weekend brought any great activity. I think I can say without fear of contradiction that it has been the worst week for at least 2 years.
Not much in the way of reports this week. I guess a combination of holiday time and poor band conditions hasn’t helped. I worked one Spanish station and heard a few more during the week but very low and they didn’t come back to me.

The annual Perseid meteor shower is just getting started as Earth enters the outskirts of a debris stream from big comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Forecasters expect the shower to peak on August 12-13 with ~100 meteors per hour. (Spaceweather.com)
Not much news on the Stoke City transfer market, yet. Looks like Wilkinson (Wilko) will miss the first couple of matches after being sent off in friendly in the States.
The Third Ashes Test starts Thursday at Old Trafford, Manchester. The Aussies need to sharpen up a bit or the series will go a bit flat. I will try to get into the 5th Test at the Oval.
