February 15, 2014


FT5ZM (Amsterdam Is) was
top call every day except Wednesday and Sunday.
W1AW in its varying flavours was best on Wednesday and TO7CC (Reunion Is) best on Sunday.
Generally a good week with lots of DX about and openings to the north and south America till late on.
And me, G4CJC, also managed some DX: ZZ80MS on PSK31, FR4PV (Reunion Is), CN2JF (Morocco) and quite a few stateside station including W1AW/4 all on SSB. I worked hard at getting FT5ZM and VP2ETE (Anguilla) but no joy, yet!
9W2ZAK, Zaki , was just playing around a bit on Thursday evening and hooked VK8NSB 599
FT5ZM 599. Friday W7SW 599, JA2JKT 599, W1AW/KH6 599, JA6BGA 599, KY5Q 599, W0BV 599 and WH6WI 599 all CW. He comments, 
“Amazingly good conditions because for the first time I was able to work into Pacific and NA with my 30 feet experimental dipole.”
Steve, M0BPQ who we haven’t heard from for a while says, 
“Happy to work FT5ZM Thursday without the amp with A3S at 110 feet AGL. Almost finished installing the optibeam 16-3 @ GB2GP so should be louder on 10m soon.”
That’s just unfair, and I wish I could do it!
Another Steve although I think he prefers Steven, 2E0NHR, worked IT9PQJ 5/9, UR9MC 5/9 and CO6LC 5/9 on Sunday (Cuba a new one for him).
Last Wednesday Kayrol, 9W2ADC worked just one station RZ3BW 5/9. But then he came back strongly on Saturday with AU3NIAR 5/9, E73RO 5/5, OH4MDY 5/7, 7J7ACC 5/9, 9W2EDU 5/9, JA1JAF 5/7, VU2HOT 5/7, F6BXQ 5/9 and JA3ROY 5/5.
He says, “I am very happy because I got 2 new DXCC today, and hope to archive my target 100 DXCC before end of this year.”
Good luck with that.
9W2AHU, Afiq , had a good Saturday working PY5YA 59, XE1KK 59, DU3/W4RS 57, DV1NLO 57, JM1NCA 59, W6KH 57, JR4VDV 59, JG2KJU 55, JA1LLY. Comments: 
“Propagation for now very good and crazy.. many station hard to get before come easier to check in. Refering to the last week report, meaning for "Dasyat" (Malay word) also like a Amazing & Unbelieveable & surprise .. Jumpa Lagi Tony..”
Sunday HC5VF 5/5 which is good distance. Thanks for the word meaning, my Malay is getting better.

Sun: A whole clutch of 7 sun spots scattered across the sun.
Stoke City managed a creditable draw away against Southampton 2 – 2 last Saturday.
Swansea this Wednesday, a very important match as they have 1 more point than us, so we need to beat them, commonly called “a six pointer”.
