TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 23, 2015

April 23, 2015


Not a bad week, a bit of a dip mid-week but the weekend more than made up for that.

TC100B (Turkey), SX150ITU (Greece), J52HF (Guinea-Bissau), 5W0JY (Samoa), CX6DZ (Uruguay), 7P8GF (Lesotho) and ZD8N (Ascension Is) were all well sought after.

I actually managed to work ZD8N. Operator Steve, G3ZVW, used to live in Enfield.

Steven, 2E0NHR , didn’t have a particularly good week. He says,“Monday worked SV5/OK2PVF 5/7. Not much to report, openings seem to be short again. Wednesday R120RS 5/7 and RA2015R 5/9.”

Sun: 8 sunspots. Already energized by the action of a high-speed solar wind stream, Earth's magnetic field could receive an additional jolt on April 22nd from an incoming CME. NOAA forecasters estimate a 65% chance of a G1-class geomagnetic storm when the cloud arrives. (spaceweather.com)
Also Earth is passing through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. If forecasters are correct, the shower will peak tonight (April 22-23) with 10 to 20 meteors per hour. Get the full story from Science@NASA.

Stoke managed to beat Southampton 2 – 1 but it was a poor match with many passes going astray and several missed chances, Still 3 points is always useful. Sunderland this Saturday I’ll be there.
