TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 16, 2015

April 16, 2015


All in all a poor week with really just Sunday giving us 10m enthusiasts any cause for celebration. Even so I was busy with grandchildren and other stuff and so didn’t work anyone.

ZL7E (Chatham Is), Z21LS (Zimbabwe), V51WW (Namibia) and TC100B (Turkey) were at the front of things but there were quite a few other DX stations.

Steven, 2E0NHR, worked SX150ITU 5/9 and UA4PN 5/9 but says,
“Hi Tony not a lot to report I'm afraid, checked out the OK-OM contest at weekend but not much 10m activity.”
I guess we’re heading toward the summer doldrums.

Sun: 6 Sunspot clusters with a minor geomagnetic storm is underway as Earth enters a high speed stream of solar wind. Forecasters expect these storm continues to continue through April 16th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

Stoke City drew 1 each with West Ham. I missed Stoke’s goal in the 95 th minute as I’d snuck off to catch the tube train, doh! We had much more of the possession, had the ball in the net 3 times and bounce it off the upright. Sunderland at the Brit next Saturday I’ll be there.
