TONY'S 10 METRE BANSD REPORT - October 31, 2013

00:24 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments









October 31, 2013

The best week for many a long year. Here are some stats. A normal week over the past 9 months, obviously varies a great deal but shows between 300 to 800 reported contacts daily.
This past week Monday 3685, Tuesday 3202, Wednesday 3465, Thursday 3733, Friday 4062, Saturday 5649 and Sunday 12917. Yes, nearly 13000 reported contacts on Sunday alone!! So if you noticed that the DX spots were not working too well then there was often a queue to log in.
This is the antenna farm at ZF2AH, they grow them big. And yes that
is a log periodic, custom built.
Mike 2E0YYY missed the contest but had a good post contest spell. Monday he worked UR3CTB 5/5, OE9EGI/p, RX3XC 5/9, R3GB 5/9, RA3AVW 5/7, UA3FTJ 5/9, UV5EHW 5/9, P40Y 5/9, UT5VP 5/9, RA6LY 5/9, SV7CFP 5/9, YY5SKA 5/8, UA1ZKW 5/9, VU2DSI 5/7, OD5ZZ 5/9, VE3UUH 5/9, W4TKI 5/5, VE9WW 5/9, KI4MZS 5/2, VE3OSC 5/9, WA9HUX 5/9, N0GXM 5/6, ON3RY 5/2, K3UHU5/9, WB0ISK 5/8, KB3SBV 5/1, W2GDR 5/7, W4RIK 5/5, WP4NQR 5/9, NG4C 5/9, CX2DA 5/5, PU2CHS 5/5, N1QVQ 5/6, CE6WDK 5/5, KA1DLM 5/5 and VE3LOE 5/7.
“Sadly I was working Saturday and Sunday, so I missed all of the contest. Monday, I found the band a bit quieter than it has been. Also, there was some of QSB to contend with.” 
Tuesday he got JW9JKA 5/9, A61LL 5/7, TB5ZND 5/9, UR4MKK 5/7, KB3AUM 5/1, WA9HUX 5/1, N1DYX 5/9, RX3AOX/m, VA1AWH 5/8, KD4QMY 5/9, UT9EUQ 5/6, M0ACA 5/9, RA3FV 5/9, W5IZ 5/9, KW4TT 5/9, N4XXO 5/4, VE2BWT 5/2, KK4EQF 5/9, KD8URZ 5/3, KC2SGN 5/5, K2YGM 5/9, D44TXT 5/9, SV2MAP 5/9, UA3RMB 5/9, UY5VA 5/9, WA4VY 5/9, UA3GLX 5/9, UR3AFK 5/9, CX7AF 5/7, Y08SJM 5/9, UA1ZOZ 5/9, RW3WWW 5/7, RA6LY 5/9, R9XM 5/9, W9ILY 5/9, IT9IKC 5/9, TC90CUM 5/9, N6JW 5/8, PY3ZY 5/9, WB4SQC 5/9, K0BLT 5/9, N4LMI 5/9, W6WQA 5/9, KD0UWE 5/8, N0AQF 5/8, KK4RFI 5/3, W2WKD 5/9, HC2FN 5/7, VE9RK 5/8, W3MRL 5/2, N2XDA/m 5/6 and CN2TX 5/6.
The band was busier today, however, still some QSB to contend with.”

In the past week I, G4CJC, worked some 150 stations, many were in the USA and Russia so I will not list them all, just my prize DX, all on SSB: ZF2AH Cayman Is., TM6MH Afghanistan, A71BX Qatar, BY0AA China, YV1FPT Venezuela, CU3AC Azores, HK1AA Columbia, TC0BOZ Turkey, CE3CT Chile, AY5F Argentina, CT9/R9DX Madeira, SW5CC Dodecanese Is (Rhodes) and JW9JKA Bear Is. I did not hear a single VK or ZL. A quick count revealed only 150 reported contacts with VK and 110 with ZL. All my antennas survived the very high winds on Sunday night. Here is a link to some pics of nearby trees that it took out and barograph showing the drop in pressure. Storm
And really strange, is that there are no reports from Malaysia this week. Perhaps they are still recovering from the mega weekend.

I had to raise the bar for contacts this week to 10 to make the list manageable! And then to 20 on Sunday.

Sun:
Seven sunspot clusters with sunspot AR1884 having a delta-class magnetic field that harbours energy for X-class solar flares. Consider it a parting shot. Just before sunspot AR1875 rotated over the sun's western limb on Oct. 29th, it unleashed a powerful X2-class solar flare.
NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the explosion's extreme ultraviolet flash. X-rays and UV radiation from the flare ionized the top of our planet's atmosphere.
Waves of ionization disturbed the normal propagation of radio waves over the Americas and the Pacific, and may have caused an HF communications blackout over the poles. But not on 10m between here and the USA!

We, Stoke City, lost 3 – 2 to Manchester United after twice being in the lead. But at least we scored 2 goals. Southampton this coming weekend at the Brit. We so do need a win.
We did beat Birmingham in the League Cup 2 – 4 on penalties.
Please note: Next week’s column will not available until Thursday.
