TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - August 18, 2016

August 18, 2016


Not a particularly good week, with the weekend dominating proceedings as usual.

Lots of Olympic Games calls about R31RIO, ZV2016RIO and quite a few YB71RIs celebrating the 71st Independence Day Of The Republic Of Indonesia.

Then on Sunday up popped the unusual call of P33W from Cyprus.
This past week I worked EC1AJL, EA2BPJ, PU4HPC, PU6LSB, EA7AH, 5P1KZX, SP1MVS, OZ2JLN, OH3MNC, IW6CZF, SQ2PPM, SQ9BZN, SO7BIT, HA9AL, S53EO, IW9CIG, PY6AZ and IW0EFI mostly on JT65 and using my Windom antenna.

I have at last got my Moxon 10m mono-bander up and running. It had to come down to have its resonant frequency tweaked. Even so it’s not absolutely where the calculations say it should be. It’s at 28.495MHz very usable but I would have preferred lower as a good match for the digital modes. Operating reports in the coming weeks.



Paulo Teixeira, CT2IWW, reports that there are Illegal GPS sea buoys on 10 meters. He says that they located in the Atlantic, alongside the coasts of Africa and Europe but may be elsewhere. For a full report click here.

Sun: Not one of the five sunspots has the type of unstable magnetic field that poses a threat for strong flares.
 
Stoke managed a creditable draw away at Middlesbrough. Next match is against Man City at Stoke. A really tough game, for them! Our home stadium is now called the Bet365 Stadium, lovely, not.
 
England crashed out of the 4th Test against Pakistan in four days at the Oval. I had a ticket for the 5th day. So instead I went to Lord’s to watch Middlesex thump Durham and stay top of the first division.
