TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - May 18, 2017

May 18, 2017


The week days were really almost devoid of activity. The weekend especially Sunday really pulled things back. I was still away so couldn’t participate.

Looking at the weekend it seems like the activity was mainly inter-European. IS0DCR (Sardinia), EI66WAW (Ireland), EB3DYS (Spain) were popular and there were even a few G stations involved.
From 1st January to 31st December 2017 Irish Radio Amateurs will be on air with nine special calls - EI11WAW through to EI99WAW.  Each call will be associated with one of the counties making up the Wild Atlantic Way. 

Each call will have its own distinctive QSL card depicting a highlight of the county linked to the call. A Certificate will be made available for download to any station that works all nine calls, any band any mode.  Sample below. Apply by email to QSL manager EI6AL giving name, call and mode for all calls (Mixed/CW/SSB or Digital).  A certificate can be sent by post - send €5 ($5) to cover postage either direct to EI6AL or via Paypal to payments@irts.ie

Sun: With 7 sunspotless days gone a tiny spot is just emerging.
 
Stoke lamely lost 1 – 4 to Arsenal who were glad to cast this bogey aside. The one highlight Crouchy’s goal. Southampton away on the last day of the season next Sunday. A really miserable end to the second half of the term.
