TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - January 25, 2014

January 25, 2014

A complete mixed bag of popular DX, each day being different. W1AW/xx where xx 
is an area code, has been operating this past week.
W1AW, the Hiram Percy Maxim Memorial Station is known the world over for its on-air Morse code practice sessions and news bulletins.
Other popular DX has been ZL1BYZ, (New Zealand), RT22UA and other “22” stations are special event call-signs dedicated to the 22nd Winter Olympic Games and 11th Paralympic Games in Sochi 2014. A43LH is a lighthouse in Oman and V5/DL9NDS is Namibia. CE7/UA4WHX is Chiloe Island and VK6FZM/MM is the team of FT5ZM on MV Braveheart sailing to Amsterdam Island. So some unusual DX about.
I managed a QSO (via IRLP, so not 10m) with Dave VK5MRD. The guy is really busy with being self employed and a new family. It’s good though that his business is so vibrant and making money when many others are not. Glad he could take time out to chat, hope to do so again before I go back to the UK. He’s really missing Ten Metres.
I also had some time with VK4UH Kevin and his partner Judy. They live on the outskirts of Brisbane and have plenty of room for antennas. Kev’s into EME at the moment but is looking at satellite stuff. He needs an HF beam then I can get him onto 10m. Also met VK4IIO, Phil and his wife Sally.

Robert, OE5IIO, says, “Hello Tony! Thanks for this very good "Homepage", it’s more, it’s great, 73”
Well thank you Robert, it’s nice to know we are being read and appreciated.
Jorge, CT1EXR worked R7378TM 599 CW, RN22OG 599 CW, W1AW/3 599 CW and 6W/F6IRS 59 SSB on Saturday.
Cheers and thanks for the report.
Steven, 2E0NHR, worked K3RA 5/7 and W1AW 5/9 the ARRL HQ operators club on Tuesday.

Sun: Nine sunspot clusters visible but for the past 24 hours, solar activity has been low. However, two sunspots facing Earth, AR1957 and AR1959, have 'beta-gamma' magnetic fields that harbour energy for M-class solar flares.

Stoke lost 1 – 0 to Palace, not good. This Saturday it’s the FA Cup against Chelsea at The Bridge, we will need some luck!
