August 29, 2013

A very varied week with a really excellent weekend which was not apparent from here in the UK.
Plenty of DX about.
YW5X (DX Expedicion Isla la Orchila, Venezuela) did well on Thursday to Saturday but failed to turn up on Sunday.
Their QRZ.com page is worth a visit.

This is a tidy little video.

Myself, G4CJC I worked SP8UFR, I3PVB both on PSK31 and LA7EU on SSB. I couldn’t get on 10 at the weekend.

Arie, 9W2VVH got back into the throes of things on 10m.
“Hi Tony. Last week-end, I managed to participate in 3 contests. In YO HF DX Contest, wkd 14 contest stns - C4I, EA3FRI, F5LIW, PI4DX, GW4BLE, IZ3SQW, IV3UHL, IK4DCX, EA7KB, LX7I, G4RFR, YO3CZW, SP1RKT & YO5KAD. In CVA (Brazil) Contest just got 2 contest stns - PT6B & PY8WW. In Hawaii QSO Party also wkd 2 contest stns - KH6BB & KH6LC. Beside contest stns, last week-end wkd as normal QSO with SV1HFW/8, CT2JYX & JA6IDJ.”

Good stuff and I see you worked Steve GW4BLE. It’s a while since I saw his call appear.
Steve, M0STC , heard Z81B 5/7 and ZS6DN (beacon) 5/5 on Saturday, worked D2QR 3/3 (PSK62) then later D2QR 5/9 (PSK31) PT9IR 5/9 (PSK125) and ES3BR 5/5 (PSK31) on Sunday with PY2SRL 4/4 (PSK31) on Monday.

Ian, G0UWK , is back. He worked TZ6BB, PY2EX, PJ2/IW1FC and LU1JHD on Sunday.
“Hi Tony, just got QRV again on 10m after an 18 month break. Sunday I put up a 4 element monoband yagi and dusted off the Acom 1000. Good signals on the transequatorial path to Africa and South America with PJ2 thrown in for good measure. Looking forward to the autumnal equinox and hopefully some good F2 into Asia and the pacific regions. Watch this space!”
Well send us some pics and details of the antenna then, so we can all drool over it.

Stoke City gained their first Premier League points of the new season by beating Crystal Palace 2 – 1. Not great but a win is a win and three points. West Ham away next Saturday, I’ll be there.
Stoke v Walsall in the League Cup Wednesday, well it’s not real football after all.
The England cricket team almost ended the Ashes Series with a win but were robbed by the light. Rules is rules, well in cricket they’re actually Laws.

The most sincere respect to Michael Clarke (Australia’s captain) for making what could have been a dead last day into a really exciting one with a courageous declaration. The guy is a diamond and an Ace Australian cricketer.
