TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - November 20, 2014

November 20, 2014

Another excellent week with quite a lot of DX about.

W1AW, in all it’s guises, was prominent.
VU4CB (Andaman and Nicobar Is), ZW75PSO (Brazil’s Parnaso Park) and 5R8IC (Madagascar) all pulling in the contacts.

Myself, I had a few jobs to do so only worked W1AW/1, VR2XMT, UN7IN and LZ1164SIM.

Steven, 2E0NHR worked RX3DN 5/9, UR4CYT 5/9 and V31MA 5/9(new country) on Thursday, EA6/DL7AFY 5/7 on Sunday and UK8ZC 5/9 and 7W9A 5/9 on Tuesday. “10m seems to be going really good this week..long may it last.” he says.

And so say all of us.

Datta, VU2DS, sent this in.

And for those of you who didn’t know Bose was Bengali polymath, physicist, biologist, botanist, archaeologist, as well as an early writer of science fiction. He pioneered the investigation of radio and microwave optics, made very significant contributions to plant science, and laid the foundations of experimental science in the Indian subcontinent.

IEEE named him one of the fathers of radio science.
He is also considered the father of Bengali science fiction. In addition he invented the crescograph (measures growth in plants). A crater on the moon has been named in his honour. So now you do know!

Sun: Four sunspot clusters with 2192 coming round again for a 2 nd transit.
Poor little Philae probe bounced into a shady spot unfortunately and may not be able to recharge enough battery to do anything more. But we will see, as the comet gets closer to the sun things may change.
Stoke play Burnley this Saturday. Feels like a comfy 3 points for us but our home form has not been great this year.
