March 20, 2014


Quite a fantastic week on Ten Metres.

9J2T was top DX again, all week! Ten reported contacts needed to get into the list.
W3LPL was doing sterling work as top spotter till HI8CSS (Dominican Republic) jumped in mid-week. This is W3LPL’s antenna farm. Very nice.
Nazmi, 9W2GSG , worked ZS6NEB 5/9, VU3HPK 5/9, 4S7TZ 5/9, VK6MK 5/9, DL7FU 5/5, I4YSS 5/9, DJ3XG 5/9, ZS6AI 5/9, VU3NXI 5/9, PY1FOG 5/9, PP2AT 5/9 on Tuesday and he hopes, as we all do, for a miracle with the lost flight MH370. It’s not looking good though.
Saturday Fauzan, 9W2FOR, worked RK9UE 5/9, JI1HAC 5/9, F4HEC 5/9, F8EMH 5/9 IW2HAJ 5/9 and heard RA22MA, IK5IFH. “Hi Tony.. thanks for your 10 meter report. Last week I just finished conducting an amateur radio class for Kuala Lumpur Sea Scout, we award the scouts with The Marine Communication Members Badge to the participants. We use the 10 meter band to do some DXing. Credit to 9M2KEV, 9W2ADC, 9W2FEJ and 9W2EDU who help me on the program. That's all for today. Terima kasih. Sayang selalu. 73”
Nice one Fauzan, it’s good to get some youngsters involved on 10m. On Monday he worked YC9WIC 5/9 heard W3DF 5/9,VK3BM 5/9, JA1HOU 5/9 and JA1WQD 5/9. Tuesday worked AC6DX 5/9 and heard VU2XO 5/9, YO6DDF 5/9.
Arie, 9W2VVH says, “Hi Tony... not much time on radio this week. Mar 15 - wkd IT9PQJ, UW1GR, VU3LMS, VU2UUU, M0BZH, & G4ELJ - His working condition - homemade trx 400w with qubical quad ant... also wkd some Russian DX Contest like OK7K, OH2BH, 9A9A, HG7T, IZ4COW, SP9KDA, IZ0PAU & EA8CNR.

Thanks Arie.
9W2VVN, Ridzuan , worked YC0IEM 5/9 and heard YB0NDT 5/9, JG1AVO 4/8 and JA7NBX 5/9. “Hi Tony..nice to be here again..this week I worked 1 more station and just heard a few stations. Just planning to build a new antenna and try to get more contacts.”
I ordered a new Moxon monobander but it may not arrive till April.

Sun: There are 11 sunspot clusters but AR2010 is crackling with low-level C-class solar flares. All the other sunspots are quiet.
Earth and Mars are converging for a close encounter in April 2014, an event astronomers call "opposition." At closest approach on April 14th, burnt-orange Mars will rise in the east at sunset and soar almost overhead at midnight shining 8 times brighter than a 1st magnitude star. Even now the view is impressive. (spaceweather.com)
Stoke beat West Ham to give us the first double (home and away) of the season. Aston Villa away this Sunday and it’s on TV. And it’s another 6 pointer and we must win.
