February 28, 2013



9U4U (Burundi, Eastern Africa) was probably the most popular DX all week with XT2TT (Burkina Faso, West Africa formally Upper Volta) giving him a run for his money.
Most activity was at the weekend as usual but we did get a mid week peak on Wednesday.

Abdul, 9W2JDD, sent in a report even though things were not too good. On Wednesday he worked J28UC 5/8 and says, “The propagation is not good enough to received any other calls, I need to be more patient while "hunting”. Thursday, “Worked TO1FF 5/8. The weather and propagation not at our side . Still difficult to work on 10 meters. Saturday heard: FR4NT and RT7T. I try to participate in France contest , but once again not at right time, I have another matter I need to resolve.”

Andy, M0HLT , worked A71BO -RST rx 5/5, (Friday)UR9MC-5/9 ,RV9DC 5/5 (Monday)US1GCU 5/6,A61LL -5/8 , UR4MSF-5/9 (today) and heard WB6BJN very weak with QSB and 5B4?? Cyprus. He comments: “G'day Tony, well not so good this past week, but! A71BO QATAR and A61LL U.A.E....were both new ones for me on ANY band , again things seem to happen mid/ late morning then drop off at lunch time, until around dusk / grey line'ish. Home this week with the dreaded paper work!!! 73“ Cheers Andy

Sun: New sunspot AR1682 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class flares.

Stoke lost to Fulham 1 – 0 and we missed a penalty, terrible. West Ham this weekend at the Brit, we need the points or we will drift down the table.
