TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - January 5, 2016

January 5, 2016

Yet another poor week and I’m afraid it is probably the forerunner of many to come. Monday was the best day without a doubt.

The popular DX was OF9X (Finland Santa), DA0YOTA (German Youth On The Air), RM17NY (Russian New Year 2017) with some others popped to fill up the space. I did see VK5MRD just outside the lists.


 
I worked a DG and a G on JT65, nothing more all week.

Next week I should have completed a graph of the reported activity for 2016. So far it doesn’t make for good viewing.

Sun: Jan 2 nd no sunspots, doesn’t look good for 2017.
 
Stoke lost 4 – 2 against Chelsea but they didn’t have it all their own way. We played well in patches but again defensive errors cost us dear.

We did beat Watford 2 – 0, so we’ve now beaten them home and away. The FA Cup this weekend. We are playing Wolves. I’m not bothering with that.
