January 9, 2014

Quite a good week on 10m, well for some anyway. I’m in Australia for a few weeks with no HF kit.
Some good DX about though, W100AW celebrating 100 years of ARRL, 1A0KM (Malta), 3W1T (Vietnam), ZM90DX (New Zealand) and RG110RAEM (Russia), et al.

Big Dave, VK5MRD has been quiet for a while. Here’s his explanation.
“Little bubs is doing well, life is just so busy now. Between running a business and family commitments, there just is not any spare time. When bubs was born I had to pack up my radio gear to make room for her and since then I have not been on HF. That was until last Friday when i was lucky enough to go portable with my mates Theo VK5MTM and Andy VK5AKH.
We set up on the side of a hill around 60km south of the city of Adelaide.
Running on battery power our equipment was a Elecraft KX3 and
a Kenwood TS130s, antennas were a squid pole and a Hex beam.
I could not stay all day and had to leave early. Whilst I was there 10m was quiet with only a few a few JAs worked JA1COR and JR1JGA, VK8VF/b was also very strong.
Had a look on 20m and on the ANZA net and amongst others worked VK9, E51 and FO5. About an hour after I left Theo VK5MTM on 10m worked via LP Algeria then Ukraine and Germany. We all had a great time and the Hex beam worked a treat. I have attached a photo of our set up, if you look closely you can see the Hex beam.”
Great stuff Dave, what Hex Beam, where? Lol. You have missed some magnificent weeks on 10m, but family comes first.
Mike, 2E0ZAZ goes portable on the south coast of England with this kit, (see picture right) but not when it’s overly windy.

Sun: Growing sunspot AR1944 has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbours energy for X-class solar flares. I fact as I write this on Tuesday energetic solar protons are streaming past Earth today, triggering an S1-class solar radiation storm. They were propelled toward us by an explosion in the magnetic canopy of old sunspot AR1936.(spaceweather.com)

Well Stoke City are into the next round of the FA Cup, against Chelsea in a couple of weeks. This coming Sunday we play Liverpool at the Brit.
I will record it to watch later when I get back.
