December 17, 2015

A fantastic weekend contest with over 9800 contacts reported on Saturday and over 9200 on Sunday.
Lots of DX: J52HF (Guinea-Bissau), TZ9A (Mali), FY5KE (French Guiana), PJ2/NT6X (Curacao), PJ2T (also Curacao) and TO90R (Reunion Is) along with stacks more in the ARRL 10m contest.



There was not much I could hear in the contest and you can see from the list below that not many G stations feature. I did work an EA8 and a OH along with a ZS but it was a struggle.

Not so for PY2VOA, Faustino. Saturday he worked HK6F 5/9, HK1T 5/9, 8P6ET 5/9, NP2P 5/9, YV5KG 5/9, WP4PGY 5/9, TG9ANF 5/9, CE1TT 5/9, P40S 5/9, DL2SAX 5/9, TM7G 5/9, DR2W 5/9, IZ1ANK 5/9 and Sunday ZS4JAN 5/9, IZ6CLN 5/9, E77DX 5/9, ZS1TMJ 5/9, S53EO 5/9, S50D 5/9, CU2PM 5/9, CR2X 5/9, NX6T 5/9, K7JR 5/9, WA7NB 5/9, W6YX 5/9, NH7NJ 5/9, NH7AA 5/9, KP3BR 5/9, XE1H 5/9, YV5IUA 5/9, XR90IARU 5/9, FM1HN 5/9, XE1B 5/9, CU2PM all in the 10m contest.
 
Andy, M0HLT is back with LZ2HM, IT9BTI, C4I (genuine call from Cyprus), RY6Y, UW1M, FY5KE, HI3CC, PJ4DX and EA8AH. He says,
Hi Tony (and the gang) [who’s that then?]
It's been a long time since I last put a report in. But with the ARRL 10M contest at the weekend, I managed (between other things) to work 9 stations, not much I know, but HI3CC, Dominican Republic (a new country on ANY band for me) also FY5KE and PJ4DX (you may know him personally? [no but I know of him]) a G4 and an expat, after a strong opening to the Caribbean around 1300 UTC. Soon after the band just dropped out for me anyway. All with around 70watts from the TS2000 to a 10 metre Resonant dipole in the roof.”
Better than I did. Tell us Andy how noisy do you find the vertical? I have one but compared to the Windom it’s noisy.

Stoke City picked up a useful away point in a nil – nil draw against West Ham. We went close to scoring but did not lift ourselves up to the same level as against Man City the week before.

Crystal Palace at the Brit this weekend. It’ll be a tough one, they are doing well. I’ll be there.
