TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - May 7, 2015

May 7, 2015

Not really a single station top dog for all the week. VK9NT (Norfolk Is), PY0F/PP1CZ (Fernando de Noronha Is), J6/EB7DX (St Lucia), CX90IARU (Uruguay), JD1BMH (Ogasawara Is), PW2C (Cambriú Is) and AO150G (Spain) were prominent. Mid week was poor.



I myself was in EA8, Gran Canaria for a week but without any kit so no contacts there. Nor were there any clouds, sun for 7 days.
Just one report from Mauricio, who now has CE7KF and was CE7KFG. Maybe CE7KFC he would have chickened out on or maybe he got fried with it (sorry Ed you can delete this bit).

Most popular DX (FIVE or more contacts, any mode)

Sun: Five sunspots with sunspots AR2335 and AR2339 posing a threat for strong flares.

Stoke lost away to Swansea, shame we needed the points to catch them up. Spurs this weekend at the Brit I’ll be there.

Sad note Jimmy Greaves ex Spurs and Chelsea and England suffered a stroke recently. He’s in a bad way but holding his own. I saw Stoke keeper Gordon Banks save one of his penalties, but unfortunately he couldn’t save Jimmy’s second one. I also saw him do a live show (chat and comedy) with Ron (Chopper) Harris (ex Chelsea). Hang in there Jimmy!
