February 14, 2013



And yet again a dreary week but a sparkling weekend. The weather was bad and I had to travel so not much time for me on Ten Metres.
Good DX about, ZK3T (Tokelau Is), 3B8/HB9ARY (Pointe aux Sables), 6W/F6IRS/P (Senegal), 5X8C (Uganda) who just about gets top dog for the week, certainly for the weekend.
It seems that there is a good radio path to Malaysia judging by the number of contributions this week.
A first report from Zamri, 9W2NMX. Tuesday he worked SP8AWL 5/8, 9W2YND 5/7, 9W2KJW 4/0 and heard IW2HAJ 5/9, 9W2GEO 5/3 and 9M2AIA 5/0.
Excellent, do let us know who else you work and what your equipment is.
And another first Mohd, 9M2AIS, worked JA3TJW 5/8 and JK6IMF 5/9 on Monday. On Wednesday he worked BD7IS 5/9, OK3EE 5/7 and 9W2KJW 5/8 and heard VU2DK 5/7. He is obviously delighted because he comments, “I'm very happy because I got my first time contact with OK3. I’m using a homebrew antenna dipole 30feet from the ground.” 
If you have any photos of the antenna send them to me. And thanks for the report.
On Monday, Sallehan, 9W2SBD, worked I4LEC 5/9, YO9FTN 599 ( PSK 31), US1US 5/9, UR4QQF 5/9, UV5EEO 5/9, UR5UO 5/9, UA3RKK 5/9, RV4CC 5/9, S57S 5/9 and JK6IMF 5/9.
He says, “I worked 10 station in 1 hour on QRP.. My Lucky day for me.. "Malaysia Boleh””
Zaki, 9M2ZAK (just love that call) worked RW3PK, 599 long path on Tuesday. On Saturday last weekend he says “Feb 9-10, 2013 - I managed to joint my 1st digital mode contest in CQWPX RTTY 2013 contest as SOSB 10M low power category. Wkd 66 QSOs & 47 different prefixes world wide!”
That’s pretty damn good.
From Andy M0HLT comes this report. “Hi Tony, it's been a while since I last posted, but away working again, also I have not really heard too much at weekends, although there always seems to be a early morning openings to eastern Russia / Europe.
Also the Hy gain Triband vertical is full of water, even though I have brought shares in self amalgamating tape!!! So it's come down and been replaced with a Sirio 4000 7/8 wave mobile (cut for 10metres) whip on a relevant angle bracket with a so239 mounting, first call after installing a couple of weeks ago was into the Dominican with a 5/5 report.
I think? I worked TC1BW (Turkey) so not to bad. You may be the other side of the world at present, have a good time.” Thanks Andy, not there yet but will probably be so by the time you read this.
Dave, VK5MRD worked just the one, JI8NBJ. “Only one station worked today. Been very busy with work and family commitments.”

Stoke City beat Reading 2 – 1 and we are still only 10 th but a little gap is opening up between us (Stoke) and the relegation zone clubs. Man U are way out front 12 points clear of any rival. No match this weekend as it’s a Cup weekend and we got knocked out.
