February 7 , 2014


No doubt about which station was the most popular flavour of the week FT5ZM, (Amsterdam and St Paul Islands) each and every day of the week. 

After that W1AW (ARRL's Centennial Celebration), YW80RCV (Venezuela special call), A52JR (Bhutan pic right)
And for reports, the 9W2 guys win again!
Friday Kayrols, 9W2ADC, worked JE3SSL 5/9, UR5MKB 5/9 and 9K2/SP4R 5/9. Saturday TY1TT 5/9, EU1A 5/9 (using home brew rotary dipole) and A52JR 5/9. Sunday IK4GRO 5/6, DL8YBM 5/7, FT5ZM 5/9 (at last), JA5AQV 5/9, JH3LCX 5/5, 7M2KGJ 5/7, JR4NMV 5/9, JH7OHS 5/9 and JS1OHI 5/7. And Tuesday JE2FUP 5/9, BU2BV 5/9 and JA1QS 5/9.

Arie, 9W2VVH is back. He says, “Hi Tony... How are you? Hope not too late to wish you Happy New Year 2014 . Here is my 1st report to you for this year... Wed-Feb 5: Wkd JK1XLD, JG7QKY, JQ6DDO & BG5IEY. Not much time on radio for January... On Jan 3, wkd only BG8DC. Jan 20, Only BG7IGE/qrp & Jan 24, wkd KQ6PK, JE1AON & 9W2GSG. That’s all for now... Terima kasih & Jumpa lagi / Thank you & See you agn 73 Arie.”
All the best to you and yours for 2014.

Zamri, 9W2NMX managed VR2XMT 5/8, EU1A 5/8, DK3EE 5/7 and IK4GRO 5/7 on Saturday.
“On February 1st, I managed to work VR2XMT & EU1A with each 5/8.. running 40 to 50W with Yaesu Ft-897D & 3 element monoband Yagi Antenna... 2nd February, I worked DK3EE & IK4GRO.. each report was sent 5/7. Running 50w with Icom IC-706 MKIIG & 3EL Mono Yagi..”
The mono bander seems to be doing the trick.

9W2FLV, Zainal , worked A52JR 5/9 on Friday and on Saturday JG1HQA 5/9 and RW22QA 5/9 as well as hearing FT5ZM 5/9. He says “DX in a cool, 18ºCelsius in the morning.”
Very nice indeed. It’s varying between 2ºC and 7ºC here with lots of rain and wind.

Zaifful, 9W2MZY worked quite a few on Monday including 3 new DXCC stations. BH4WJR 5/9, KL2HD 5/5, FT5ZM 5/9, AU3NIAR 5/9, IT9CNF 5/5, HL2DNN 5/5, AP2MB 5/9 and RJ22GF 5/9.

Saturday IZ8NVV, IW3IBK, OE6MBG, VK5PAS, RV6FT, A52JR , All - 5/9 then Sunday DK3EE, RY22RZ, RW22QA, JA1UOA, JR1EMT, JL1HOV, JA7GDW, JG2CPW, JS6SJW, RW9UR, JJ1LWA, RW0JW, RD0L, JR3AOF, JA7XVZ, JG1EGG, JA3IUB, JR2TRC and JR2BOF, 5/9. He comments,“Dasyat ..Many stations when I beam to JA I also get Hawaii and Russia.”
Afiq, let me know what Dasyat is.

Me, I just worked a couple of Asiatic Russian stations on PSK31.

Sun: 6 sunspot clusters but they are whoppers. Carried along by the sun's 27-day rotation, big sunspot AR1967 is turning away from Earth. Ironically this is making the active region even more dangerous. AR1967 is moving toward a location where the sun's spiralling magnetic field is well-connected to our planet and energetic particles can be funnelled in our direction. An explosion there could spark a radiation storm around Earth. (spaceweather.com)

Fantastic, Stoke City beat Manchester United 2 – 1. I was there.
OK we lost to Crystal Palace and Sunderland both way down the table but this is the first time we have beaten United since we have been in the Premier League. Southampton away next week.
