April 2, 2015


What a week and an even better weekend. Playing major parts in this week’s fun: 9Q0HQ (Congo), PJ2/PA1CC (Curacao), 5J0B (San Andes Is), V21ZG (Antigua and Barbuda), 7QAA (Malawi), D4C (Cape Verde Is) and CN2AA (Morocco).



Myself, G4CJC , I had a productive spell on Sunday during the contest.
I worked P40L, TO4C, PY1NX, ZS9Z, EB8AH, FY5FY, CT9/R9DX, EA8OM, SV5DKL, PJ2T, CW5W, LU5FF, PX5E, 5E5E, PJ4Z, SX9C, P33W, RL9AA, ZY2B, A65BP, TC2C all on SSB. Great fun and some persistence and patience. Unfortunately not all will QSL via eQSL or LOTW. Still, I know they’re in my log. Since then 10m has been fairly quiet.

Steven, 2E0NHR , collected these on Saturday: CT9/R9DX 5/9, CR6T 5/9, CN3A 5/9, P33W 5/9, C4Z 5/9, P3N 5/9, CQ9L 5/9, PU2WDX 5/9, NA4W 5/9, VY22M 5/9, H27A 5/9, TC2MK 5/9, NV1N 5/9 and these on Sunday: J42T 5/9, OG6N 5/9, OH6K 5/9, 3V8SS 5/9, PX5E 5/9, PY1NX 5/9, ZY2B 5/9, RJ4P 5/9, SX9C 5/9, CW5W 5/9.
A pretty good haul.

On Saturday morning, April 4th, sky watchers in the USA can see a brief but beautiful total eclipse of the Moon. The event will also be visible from Mexico, western Canada, across the entire Pacific Ocean, Australia, Indonesia, and elsewhere.

Stoke play Chelsea at the Bridge. I would have gone but it’s live on TV. It would be nice to win there at last.
