TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - September 1, 2016

22:45 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments










September 1, 2016

Conditions are gradually worsening without a doubt, even Saturday and Sunday were poor.
I’ve noticed amateurs who self spot before but they don’t usually continue for too long, and hey, a little self publicity can help.

Now I’ve seen two more different sorts. F1BBL has been spotting beacons prolifically and HA9AL has be spotting his own WSPR signals in quantity. In a sense both are commenting on or showing that propagation is there. I neither condemn nor encourage it. There are some that say you should only spot the ones you work.

So?

Really popular this week were OA4O (Peru), 5T2AI (Mauritania), CY9C (St Paul Is), VP8LP (Falklands) and others.



Tuesday, Rafael, YV5RED/QRP worked PY2KC -9 @2015, KM4PFF -18 @2029, WA4RG -07 @2043, PY2KHS -09 @2051, LU7ECO -10 @2056, VP9GE -11 @2119, LU1ECO -08 @2125, LU2EXS -14 @21 and heard PU4HPC -13 @2012, CA3LMO -3 @2048, KK4TE -14 @2148, LU1DMF -13 @2203, CX8ABF -06 @2200. That is more than most Ops did.

Ah, SSB Field day again. How I miss that weekend sat in a field near to Alrewas (Lichfield) drinking beer, eating curry and working DX. Mind you what I mostly did was put up antennas, spot 10m DX and cook the breakfast. But I loved it.

Then there is the German 10m digital contest as well.

Sun: 4 sunspots but solar activity is fairly low.
 
Stoke lost 1 – 0 to Everton by a really unfortunate penalty (if it was one?). The goalie saved it pushed it against the post whereupon it bounced back, hit him on the back of the head and into the goal. Doh!
No match this week as there are lots of internationals.
 
England cricket team smashed Pakistan at the 3 rd ODI with the biggest ever ODI score and have now secured the series.
