TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - November 13, 2015

November 13, 2015



No doubt about the top sought after and found DX
this week, 3W3MD (Vietnam) top every day.

There were other DX stations about of course, C91B (Mozambique), VK5MAV/8 (Croker Is), 5Z4HW (Kenya), FR5DX (Reunion Is), P40MH (Aruba) etc, etc!

And for those of you who don’t know where Aruba is (no not Rubovia, [joke]) it’s here.


 
Rob, PE9PE , emailed me with this,
“Following your 10mtr reports for a long time. I just wondered what triggered your interest in 10mtrs, besides other bands?

Also notice you use a Carolina Windom. Is there no possibility for you to set up a 2 or el yagi on 10mtrs?” 
 
Well Rob, I started out with an old ex army 19 set that got Top Band (160m) and 80m. I made loads of friends on those two bands. Then I went to a club which had a full band transceiver and listened to some DX on 10m and I was hooked. The band had low QRM and if a station was there you could work it even on low power and a small antenna. I’m not exclusively 10m but mostly I am. Of course it has it’s good times and it’s bad times. The antenna? Yes, I have a Moxon 2 element kit which is part built. The question is where to mount it. I live in London and the planning laws are strict and my wife thinks antennas are ugly. I’m also not as lively as I was about running up and down ladders. So I’m still thinking about where and how to mount it.

Friday, Faustino, PY2VOA worked ZV1RENER 5/9,
Special ativation rener - rede nacional de emergencia de radioamadores.”
I would guess that’s equivalent to UK RAYNET. He also worked ZW1CML 5/9 on Thursday.

Sun: 4 sunspot clusters with just one, AR2449, giving the earth any flares.
 
Stoke managed to defeat Chelsea for a second time in 10 days. It was a late afternoon-early evening match full of atmosphere and a 1 – 0 for Stoke. Nothing this weekend, a break because of international soccer.
