October 11, 2012


Yet another very active week on Ten Metres, 5 or
more contacts needed to get into the list.
3D2C (Conway Reef) was popular along with ZD9UW (Tristan da Cunha),. TT8TT (Chad) and VK9XM (Christmas Is) on Sunday.
Again there was loads of other DX about.
Sunday VK5MRD, Dave, had a good one.
“Here is my report for today Sunday 07/10/2012. Stations heard were:- BD4QQ, R7NA, HL4CLR, RC6U, RY3D and VK3HF on back scatter.
Stations worked were:- HS0ZIA, YB4IR, ER4DX, HS0ZIN, JH7RTQ, VK5MTM, JA2MWV, JG3KMT, JA1STN, JA3VUI, JR6GIM, JA9TQY, JA2XLV, JA2GHP, RT0Q, JG3XTK, JA6BZI, JS3LSQ, JA1FO, ES5QD, JA1RRK, IK6CWQ. My good mate Stuie, VK8NSB, is in town and he came around today with his daughter. It was really great to meet Stuie and his beautiful daughter. We wish you all the best mate!” Sunday, “Just one quick contact today before I went off to work. JA7CZU”
And note from Carl VR2CB, “I am still in Hong Kong but been real busy with work & family. In terms of radio operating I have a new neighbour and he refitted his house including new lighting – now when he turns his hall lights on I get S9 noise across the HF spectrum! An electrical engineer friend spoke to him about this and he basically said it’s not his problem, I could complain to the authority here however my wife doesn’t want me to. I’m thinking about trying one of the MFJ noise cancellers to see if this will help.
With the noise cancellers, so much depends on what's in the noise and how much of it. Sorry Carl I don't have one so can't genuinely say give it a go. If you do and it works, then you must let us know. And yes, I do enjoy visiting Shanghai, still miss Hong Kong and it's unique ways though and those little custard tarts.
Saturday was good for Shankar, A65CR though, in his own words, “Conditions seem to be slowly fading away on 10m. Is this felt by others?” He worked VU3LMS, FR5EC, 7Z7AB, DG6SA, YB0JZS, YC1ELI, HS5NMF, GP0PKT, YB1C, VK6DXI, VU2PAI, YF1AR, VK6LC, YB0MWM, YB1TJ, VK4MA, VU2RCT, VK6HOT, RA9WLW, VU2MUD, 5R8UI, 3A/G0VJG, RA6WY, DJ8DT, 9M4CPD, VU2DSI, IZ5RZR and VU2SMN.
From my view things have dipped this past week but lets face it conditions last week were the best for years.

Sun: Just two sunspots as of now but a third active region could be emerging.

Stoke City gave Liverpool a game to remember, but it all ended in draw, 0 – 0. We could have won it.
