September 4 , 2014

At the start it was a fun week and looked as though the good times were back. But past Wednesday everything drooped (I know the feeling).

The was some interesting DX about. 3B9FR (Rodriguez Is) of course, VP2ETE (Anguilla), ZD8N (Ascension Is, run by the RSGB’s very own Steve White), YC1CWK (Indonesia) and others.

Bob, N2MDA says, “Here in Florida we've had a bit of activity on 10 meters FM. Mostly north to south propagation. Tony it would be great if you could record about 60 seconds of that over the horizon radar and set it up so we can hear it, here. Along with signal strengths. Tnx Bob.”

Well I have done but you will have to go via a this link to see/hear it. The link shows jpgs of the screen of my Icom 7600. The sound recording was made when the noise was well passed it’s strongest, and it’s a m4a file.

After no one giving them much of a chance, including me, Stoke City beat Manchester City 0 - 1. Our first ever goal at the Etihad Stadium. Nothing now till Leicester in two weeks because of the international matches.
