TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - 04/04/2013

April 4, 2013



Not a good week for me. Bad cold, deaf in one ear and I’m out of my radio shack till we finish refurbishing and decorating.
Well, I want some new kit but I’m not allowed till the radio shack is up-graded.

British comedian Frankie Howard said it all,
”Woe, woe and thrice woe.”
Jaco, PE2JB, worked a select few during the contest. H27A 5/9, H2T 5/9, YB1C 5/7, YB1C 5/7 and YE1K 5/6.
Some nice ones there.
9W2VVH,Arie says, “Very happy because I broke my own record in CQ WPX SSB Contest 2013, Mar 30-31,2013 - wkd 302 stns. Last year only 264 stns. My best contact during contest with R3PA - same exchange number #237. Jumpa lagi next contest 73 de Arie 9W2VVH” 

302 worked is pretty damn good.
Dave , VK5MRD, worked these in the previous week. IK6CWQ, LZ1QI, LZ2DF, FK8DD, ZM3T, UX7IZ, JE1MQI, VR2XMT, JA4GXX. He says, “Today is the 02/04/2013. I have not been on today but I just had a listen and I can hear VK2CR on scatter working DL stations. I would have liked to have been around for the WPX contest as 10m has been wide open. However I have had to work through most of it and have also had family commitments so I have only been able to work a few stations. I guess a few is better than none!”
I’m re-decorating, no gear in working order.

Sun: 8 sunspots, with sunspot AR1711 large but quiet. The chance of flares today remains low.

Stoke City lost away at Everton. At home to Villa this Saturday, must win. Cricket soon, hope the weather warms up.
