TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - July 7, 2016

July 7, 2016

The rotator is up and the Moxon is completed. Still some cables to be sorted, but we are slowly getting there.

Not a great week but surprisingly a poor weekend. I worked a dozen or so Europeans plus 7T7T on SSB. No chance of a QSL as he doesn’t use eQSL or LotW. Why not?

Rafael, YV5RED/QRP , worked N5TM -08, KA5WRL -12, KM4UYE -02, W8VYM -01, N2CVS -13, K8YPH -01, W9BS -04 on Sunday using data modes. He heard PY2XC -18 N5TM -01, KA5WRL -01, K1DOA -03, K1CF -15, PY2XC -03, KD8IZZ -19, N2IDW -14, KC2PRB -17, PY5II -19, K5VI -11, AD4WX -14, KC9NBV -18, W2/JR1AQN -15 and on Monday KB1MGI -17. He was using IC-746; Solarcon Imax-2000 (Vertical); WSJT-X with JTAlert 2.6.16 - /QRP operation (5 watts) using JT65 Protocol: SFI=71 / A=9 / Rate for K index = 2, previous K index: 4-3.
It’s a useful and interesting mode JT65. I use JT65-HF from HB9HQX ver. 3.4. It integrates reasonably well with Ham Radio Deluxe logging programme. Shame it doesn’t go directly into DM780.



Now that would be real DX to Mars.

Sun: Another blank few days, no spots although a couple of tiddlers did pop up today, Wednesday.
 
England are out of the Euros, but we can cheer for Wales.
The cricket team white wash the Sri Lankans, now for the Pakistanis.
