TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - October 16, 2014

22:17 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments










T30D was definitely the top draw DX this past week, W1AW seems to be going through a weak session.
There were plenty of other exotic calls about.

YJ0X (Vanuatu), TX5Z (Austral Islands, Tubua), TC10SWAT (Turkey), C21GC (Nauru) and loads of others.

I worked quite a few Russians on PSK but not anything to rave about.

Sunday Martin, MW0CND, (I won’t even ask about that) worked CX7CO, A92HK, HZ1PS, HS0ZC, JA0CCP, JA2FJP, JA2FTR, A65DR, VU2SMN, VP8LP, CE1TT, LU7YZ, TI8II, RX3DN, TA2TR, 4S7AVR, VR2XMT, UN7QF, N3US, VE9ARG, K1KW, K0FPL, AK1N, UX0LL, CU7MD, ZS6TAN, SV2AOK, PY5ZBU, FM5WD, LU1JHD.

Now That is quite a good haul, but wait, read on.
“Band conditions have been very good this October with DX being worked on my low power station the radio. I used a 10/12 meter mobile radio called a ranger RCI2950DX3 all mode I used just 20 watts with a into a cb 5/8 vertical gp antennas called an I-max 2000 it just proves you don’t need big amounts of power or large beams to get out doing it on little power and basic aerials is more fun.”

Wow, I’m amazed. You must be on top of a tall hill in Wales.

2E0NHR, Steven, worked CU7MD 5/9, K3RA 5/9 , K1IED 5/9 AM on Sunday. “K3RA gave me a 5/9 +20 which is a first for me in a US QSO!” And on Monday he worked K1ZR 5/9. And on Wednesday he bagged W3EP 5/8 and CX8DS 5/7
