April 9, 2015


A good week for most on 10m, the popular DX being 7QAA (Malawi), VK5CE/P (St. Peter Is), V6Z (Truk Is), ZL7E (Chatham Is) and PQ0T (Trindade and Martim Vaz Is) not in any particular order.

I’ve had a lean week with lots of other things to do.
But Arie, 9W2VVH hasn’t. Apr 8, he worked G3PCG, VU2PLL, YB0OKR & YB0VB and heard LZ1VVV, IZ0PAU, YB200T & 9A7JCY. The previous week Apr 2 worked 9W6DLD & 9W6EZ.

Apr 6 - worked VK2MRD & YB200T. (nice to see Dave VK5MRD active).
Arie says, “Greetings from Malaysia. Yesterday (Apr 7) there are some openings for local 10m QSO between Sabah in Borneo to West Malaysia. Davy 9W6DVY wkd 11 stns (9W2ZHL/QRP, 9W2MYR, 9W2JDY, 9W2ZTB, 9W2RFN, 9W2VHF/QRP, 9W2KEA, 9W2RPQ, 9W2FCN, 9W2FLV & 9W2SBD). Beside 9W6DVY, Zamri 9W6ZAM, Zabion Jimmy 9W6EZ & Christopher 9W6KFC also wkd to some stns in West Malaysia. Jumpa lagi 73 de Arie 9W2VVH”
And greetings from sunny (yes it is) London to you.

Sun: Solar activity is low, but sunspot AR2320 could break the quiet. The growing sunspot has developed a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class solar flares. Any eruptions today would likely be geoeffective as the sunspot is directly facing Earth. (spaceweather.com)
 
Stoke lost 2 – 1 to Chelsea. But our Charlie Adam scored a 60m goal from well inside his own half. Hailed as goal of the season. West Ham this Saturday, I have a ticket. It is a real 6 pointer as they are on the same number of points as us.
