September 18, 2014






Hoorah, it looks like
10m is on an upturn.
The week wasn’t too
bad but the weekend was excellent.
Dominating the later
part of the week was TY1AA (Benin, Africa) with W1AW and 3B9FR holding the early part. T6T (Afghanistan) was also active.
Me, I was otherwise engaged at the weekend and so worked nothing.
 
Andy, M1NIX , worked DP0GVN 5/1 on Friday. “Via a poorly installed dipole at my end” he says. Still you have to start somewhere.
Saturday Steven, 2E0NHR, worked EG4GET 5/9. Sunday 5B4AIF 5/9, PX5E 5/9, PR1T 5/9, PY2UD 5/9, HZ1DG 5/9, TA7EB 5/9, HK1T 5/9. I was pleased to get some QSO's on 10m again, also a new country for me. :)

Sun: Quiet with a chance of flares: Solar activity is low. However, sunspots AR2157, AR2158 and AR2164 have 'beta-gamma' magnetic fields that harbour energy for significant eruptions.
 
Stoke were beaten at home by a single goal by Leicester. We had 80% of the possession and 13 corners in the second half. But it’s goals that win matches not pressure. QPR away this weekend. I have ticket, in with the home fans, so I’ll have to cheer silently.
And a quick mention of a birthday. Myself and the editor, Richard, G4TUT share the same date, 16th of this month.
