TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 17, 2014

April 17, 2014

An unusual week with the
early weekdays being much, much better than the weekend.
Are we seeing the start of a
dip in 10m conditions which over the past few months
have been really good.
W1AW in all its locations has been very popular with 5J0X (San Andres) top on Tuesday. Plenty of other DX about A35X (Tonga), TQ88QX (Palau) and more.
Nazmi, 9W2GSG, worked FR4NT 5/9, ZS2ABE 5/5 and LW1DZ 5/5 on Saturday. He’s pleased because, “I achieved target #100DXCC on 10m band 28MHz..tnx to LW1DZ from Argentina coming to my call on 28.466MHz 12April014 10:32UTC...(26March2013 - 12 April 2014) 1 Years 17 Days. Thanks to Sifoo2, MY10MG (Malaysia 10m Group),Melaka DX Club,and all supporters. Nothing is Impossible on 10m band.”
Well, look back a few years and 10m was flat, but let's hope we don’t go there again just yet.
Zainal, 9W2FLV, worked JA8COE/6 59, JA1FIO 49 and 9W2WP 37/47 (he is my Elmer) says Zainal.
I’m not sure of the meaning of Elmer. Can you enlighten us?
Me, I had hardly any time on the radio, except I’m now 78th in the Fun Cube data uploaders list.

Sun: 9 sets of sunspot clusters. So far these sunspots are relatively quiet, producing no more than a drizzle of low-level C-class flares. Perhaps they are conserving their energy for something bigger. NOAA forecasters estimate a 50% chance of M-flares and a 5% chance of X-flares on April 16th. (spaceweather.com)
 
Stoke City duly beat Newcastle with a fluky goal but really we had so many chances the score could have been 6 – 2. I’m at the Sky studios this Saturday for the Saturday Night Football show. And Stoke play Cardiff away. We are looking at an 8 th place finish to the end of the season.
