December 24, 2015

Very poor during the week but lifted by a lot of weekend activity. Quite a few IARU stations about plus VI9ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) and J68HZ (St Lucia)


 
M0ZDZ, Mike , writes, “Hi Tony, always interesting to read your reports. Not very often get the chance to operate on 10m. Working only portable tend to be on 20m. Did enter last weeks arrl contest, SSB only. Hard work at times but did have some nice runs, sadly all too short. Good helping of VK on both Sat and Sun. Only 1 JA but on the LP late morning Sat. Good to N/A Sat pm very poor Sun. Lots of S/A and Caribbean. Portable trailer tower at 60ft. 5 ele short boom yagi, just over 300w. Yaesus FT1000D 520 Q's 69dxc 27 states and only Canadian prov. all out of the back of my van. Had a blast. Keep up the good work.”
Thanks for the report, it’s always good to know someone is reading this stuff, hi.
 
Monday, John, M6JWQ worked TA1BX 5/4. Then Tuesday he heard TC90IARU 5/7, 9A7JCY 5/7. He says, “Tried but unable to make contact with 10W. 9A7JCY stated as using 1kW
Yes life’s a bit unequal at times.

Sun: Only 3 sunspots with maybe 2472 posing a threat for M-class solar flares.
 
Stoke managed to lose to Crystal Palace 1 - 2 in the 89th minute despite having the most shots on target and the majority of the play. But as I always say goals win matches not pressure.

Manchester United at the Brit on the Boxing day 26 th December, I’ll be there.
