TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - March 19, 2015

March 19, 2015


Not a bad week although Tuesday has been really flat for most of the day for me.
I did manage T6T (Afghanistan), 7X3WPL (Sahara DX Group), CT8/OK4MM (San Miguel Is) and other US and EU stations.
Heard E30FB but had no chance.

Steven, 2E0NHR , says, “Hello Tony and all 28'ters, I’ve been off for a few months with my daughter having major surgery but she’s bouncing back, so I hope to get back on 10m as much as I can ;}”

Well, we all wish your daughter to be in the best of health ASAP for her own sake and to let you get onto 10m before the band goes down hill again.

Sun: Only three sunspots but arriving earlier than expected, a CME hit Earth's magnetic field on March 17th at approximately 04:30 UTC. At first, the impact sparked a relatively mild G1-class (Kp=5) geomagnetic storm confined to the poles. Since then, however, the storm has intensified to G4-class (Kp=8), ranking it as the strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle. Before sunrise, bright auroras were sighted over several northern tier US states.
(Spaceweather.com) Parts of northern UK also had good auroras last night. The strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle is underway now.
 
Just a reminder to all about the partial solar eclipse on Friday between about 08:30 and 09:30 Depending where you are (in the UK) up to 90% totality. The next one is not till 2026 so lets hope for cloudless skies.
There is a propagation experiment that Radio Amateurs can participate in. Details Here.
Another way would be to use a medium wave radio and try to listen for stations that can usually only be heard at night. This might be particularly interesting for schools to try out. Details Here

I forgot the soccer section last week. Stoke City lost 1 – 0 away to West Brom. I think it’s the first time since 2002.
This coming weekend Crystal Palace at the Britannia Stadium, I’ll be there.
