TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - September 19, 2013

September 19, 2013

A very flat week, topped off by a not too bad weekend, at least for everywhere else except the UK.
The WAE German contest probably helped. I was watching a good but ultimately frustrating game of soccer.

3B9EME (Rodriguez Island) was prominent
as was HC8/G8OFQ (Galapagos Islands) with D3AA (Angola), OD5ZZ (Lebanon) and V55V (Namibia) at the weekend.

Ian, G0UWK managed a late report from the previous week. No matter, here it is.
Saturday (07/Sept) 16:23 ZD7DC 52 52,
Sunday 08:02 JA6WJL 59 59, XWØYJY 59 59, 9M4DX 59 59, G6YB/P 59 59, 5Q1A/P 59 59, V55V/P 59 59, PY2VA 59 59, 20:18 HI8JQE 55 55, 20:33 9Z4FNL 55 55,
Tuesday 18:18 CX2CQ 59 59, 19:44 LU6MC 59 59, 19:52 PY3BSG 59 59, 11/09/2013 18:28 PP5CG 59 58,
Friday 16:50 OD5ZZ KM74WK 59, 17:43 ZV1WSA 599 599, 18:16 PY2VA GG66 59 59.
“Hi Tony, sorry for the late report, 10 was in reasonable shape on Sunday morning with JA, 9M and XW to name a few.” 

Tuesday, Steve, M0STC heard PU2SEH 4/4, PY2RJ 4/4 and PU2WDF 4/4. He comments,
“Beam still pointing south and both southern African beacons heard this evening (I think), but no response to CQ. Several South American stations heard, but they can't hear me, and I can't be bothered to get up the ladder to move the beam round their way!”

You defo need a rotator or offer a small child a bribe to sit on top of the ladder. How about a hamster in a wheel and a set of gears attached to the mast?

Arie, 9W2VVH had a good WAE contest.
“Sept 14&15 - Participated in WAE DX Contest 2013 as SOAB low power category but only wkd on 10m band due my class B licence privilege that permits me to work on 70cm/2m/6m/10m. I managed to work 12 contest stns - ES5TV, UT2G, IR9W, UU7J, HA4XH, HG7T, OE2S, HA30S,YO3CZW, YQ6A, EA5DFV & F8DVD. Beside that, I also made some normal QSO with OD5ZZ - my new #157 DXCC contact and 4X4UE. During the contest period, I heard at least 10 Non-UE stns in contest - A61BK, R8MD, UT7EZ, HZ1BW, 7Z1SJ, A41OO, CR2L, EA8MT, PJ2P, YT1Q & CU1EZ.”

Sun: After a week of deep quiet, the drowsy sun seems to be waking up. Five new sunspots were numbered on Sept. 17th as the sun hurled a series of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) into space. Earth was not in the line of fire of the CMEs. One of them, however, might deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetic field a few days hence.
 
Stoke City drew 0 – 0 against Man City. But boy should we have won it, we had loads of missed chances. Stoke City is definitely the “If only” team. Arsenal away next Sunday, it’s on Sky Sports TV so that’s where I will watch it.
