TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - November 3, 2016

23:17 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments














November 3, 2016


Not a bad week and the CQWW contest at the weekend really did pull in the punters. A few of the most popular were 9G5AM (Ghana), V6Z (Truk Is), D41CV (Cape Verde Is), OD5TX (Lebanon), CX2DK (Uruguay) and ZD8W (Ascension Is) but there were lots more.



I only had a couple of contacts as I was press ganged into wall papering at my daughter’s house.
During the contest there were about 4,500 reported contacts on Saturday and 8,100 on Sunday.
Last year there were 11,300 on Saturday and 11,900 on Sunday so not as good as last year.

Sun: Only one teeny weeny spot with no real chance of flares.
When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look southwest. Venus, Saturn and the crescent Moon are gathering to form a bright triangle in the sunset sky. They are so easy to find, you won't even need a sky map. But hope for no clouds.
 
Stoke beat Swansea 3 – 1 on Monday evening. I was there. That’s 3 wins back to back and a draw. 10 out of 12 points. West Ham Saturday at the London (Olympic) Stadium. I have a ticket.
