TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - September 12, 2013

September 12, 2013

Things really should be looking better, but not so far and it’s almost autumn when conditions traditionally improve.

A fair bit of DX about though, H70ORO (Nicaragua), D44AC (Cape Verde), ZS2I (South Africa), 3B9EME (Rodrigues Island) V55V/P (Namibia) and JA6WJL (Japan) to name but a few.  Not many /P stations about so I guess conditions for the Region 1 Field Day were poor, at least on 10m.

I (G4CJC) only worked ZS3FS on PSK31 on Sunday. Nothing else came in all week.
Steve, M0STC, only worked EA8/DD5ZZ 5/7 PSK31 on Monday and he has a good beam!

Sun: 2013 is supposed to be a year of solar maximum. Indeed, the sun's magnetic field is poised to flip, a long-held sign that Solar Max has arrived. But if this is Solar Max, it looks a lot like Solar Min. The face of the sun is almost completely blank. (Spaceweather.com).
 
No Stoke match last weekend, Manchester City at the Brit this weekend, a tough one. Our new manager used to manage Man City so it will have added spice.
