TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - February 20, 2014

February 20, 2014

A phenomenal week on ten metres. Most weekdays produced 2500 reported contacts with Saturday 6200 and Sunday 6800.
FT5ZM (Amsterdam Is), TO7CC (Reunion Is) top during the week and IK7JWY (Italy) top Saturday and VR2XMT (Hong Kong) on Sunday.
Why should IK7JWY be top on Saturday?
True he has a terrific antenna system and has won loads of awards and contests. I guess he’s loud with everyone and a good operator, could be!
A new contributor John, 9H5G/C6A, in the Bahamas (bet it’s not cold, wet and windy there) says, “Worked 204 contacts in Europe and NA from Acklins Island, NA-113 in 2.5 hrs on Saturday morning.”
That’s good going, don’t tell me you had time for a 20min break for coffee.
His QRZ page says, “I intend to travel throughout the Bahamas during the winter and spring of 2014 activating the following groups:NA-001 Great Bahama Bank group,NA-113 36.6% South Bahamas group, NA-054 Berry Islands, NA-048 Bimini Islands. Some of these are rarer than others but since I will be travelling by boat, I am required to validate NA-054 and NA-048 through the IOTA Committee. I also hope to activate some islands that are not on the list, even although they seem to qualify (Hogsty Reef, Melita Cay).”
So John is about to activate some tasty DX, listen out for him.
Steven, 2E0NHR worked R2014ME 5/9, RM22DU 5/9, RA22MA 5/9, R0000O 5/9(Special Call Sign Winter Olympic Games), R2014H 5/9 last Tuesday, LZ1QN 5/9, RV6FT 5/7 Wednesday, A91WRD 5/9 (another new country) and K8CW 5/7, RJ22YY 5/9, RV9YP 5/8, 7X2ARA 5/9, YO3IMD 5/7 Friday.
Arie, 9W2VVH , worked JA1UPC/2, VK7NWT, 9M2IDJ, A91ZA, YO4RIU, RU3VV, XX9LT, US7TJ & IW0HBYon Saturday. Monday AD6NR, YB8NR, W1AW/6 & JR7DXE and heard: WH6WI, JR4VDV & W7CI. He writes, “Not much QSOs this time but my fellow 9W friends like 9W2GSG, 9W2ADC, 9W2AHU, 9W2SBD, 9W6EZ enjoyed their pileup on Saturday & Sunday.” Oh yes, a good pileup does make you think you must be doing something right. Wednesday just AU3NIAR 58/58. “Only 1 QSO today.... emmm better then nothing....”
Indeed!
Kayrol, 9W2ADC , has had some problems. “It’s Saturday so I can work DX today.. But only on weekend at my 2nd house because I cannot do it at my 1st house regarding my neighbour complaining that my voice is on the TV.. so sad” He did work UK8ZC 5/7, E20WXA 5/9, YO4RIU 5/7, UR4MSF 5/7, YO7AOT 5/8, JY9FC 5/9, SV5BYR 5/2, A61ZA 5/9, XX9LT 5/9, US7TJ 5/8, SQ2RCM 5/5, AU3NIAR 5/9, RY6M 5/9, VK4FGSL 5/9, MW0ZZK 5/5, 9K53NLD 5. Sunday was fairly good for him too. JA4FLT 5/9, JR4NMV 5/9, JG1FRT 5/9, JR4BXW 5/9, JF1MWK 5/9, N7UQ 5/5, K6JU 5/9, W7AH 5/9, JG2CPW 5/9, JE1RM 5/9, DU2BOQ 5/9, JK3ZYO 5/9, JR7IAD 5/9, JA3LEZ 5/9, IK5JYJ 5/5, RM2D 5/9, UA1ADZ 5/6, DL7SI 5/3. He comments: “Very good propagation this morning. Managed to QSO with Japan station QRP and I receive 5/9. Also get to contact 3 station from us for my 40th DXCC in. Almost 94 days explore the 10m band and DX only on weekend, I manage to get 120 contacts and 40 DXCC.”
So the second house can’t be at a bad location. Have you tried to cure the TVI problem?
And another new call sign 9W2FOR, Fauzan, heard YC0IEM 5/9 and 9W6EZ 5/9 on Sunday.
9W2AHU, Afiq , worked TO7CC 59, RY7G 58, 9K2/SP4R 59, AP2MF 59, 3B8CW 59, PA0DOM 53, IZ7DOK 55, JA7JRC 57, HA9DA 59, UU4AA 57, US5CCO 59, SP7AID 59, IK1ZQH 59, RU3VV 56, SV3ICL 53, G3UEG 57, IK6FAW 59, AU3NIAR 59, ZS6RHL 59, LA7HJA 56, UA3GT 57 and IZ7MFY 54 on Friday saying, “Just at the right time I worked this band it helped me to collect many station when beaming to Europe. Now I know why some of my friends call 10m the "Magic Band" . Sunday he got 5Z4/EA4ATI 5/9 and PY5ZHP 5/9. “Hi Tony, only 2 stations today because I'm working late but this band still "Dasyat".. haha.. Jumpa lagi.” Excellent, you do have a way with words. And a late note from Afiq, “Worked 4Z1RZ 59 and V51WH 59 on Tuesday, both of these are new DXCC QSOs.”

Sun: Half a dozen sunspots this week.
On February 17th at approximately 04:50 UT, a magnetic filament erupted from the sun's western limb. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this high-resolution image of the blast:
Because of its location on the sun's western limb, the eruption did not send a CME toward Earth. However, there was an effect on our planet: Shortwave radio loudspeakers roared with static, an event called a Type II radio burst. (spaceweather.com)
 
No match for Stoke last weekend but we play Manchester City away this Saturday and they just lost 0 – 2 to Barcelona. Ho ho, could be our lucky week.
