TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - November 7, 2014

November 7, 2014




No doubt about the most popular DX this week, 5R8M (Madagascar), FT4TA (Tromelin Is), closely followed by VK9XSP (Christmas Is).
But the band was really alive all week with loads of unusual DX calls for example, TM0RHUM is a genuine call for the French sailing ship race 'Route Du Rhum'.





 

Rahman, 9W2ORB, worked YO4RIU/9, UR5MKB/9, IK4JKP/9 and TM0RHUM/9 on Saturday
“Long time no see Tony...I hope to see you soon on 10M band..I just upgraded the shack from QRP to Low Power..time to chase DX and much to learn..Thanks”
Yes it is a long time and conditions are good so get into the DX.

Monday, Martin, MW0CND, worked JA3QUU 5/9, 9H1RZ 5/9, ZD7FT 5/7, YY5SKA 5/9, CN2HL 5/9, 7X5RS 5/9, OH9EGH 5/9, UA3PHN 5/9, UA1ADZ 5/9, FR5EC 5/9, 3DA0NJ 5/8, my report 5/4, UA9FOO 5/9, R9CAK 5/9, RA3AJT 5/9, RA/UY6IM 5/9 and YO7ARY 5/9. He heard VP8/100LP 5/9 but says,

“Big pile up no chance I would work him
.” I know the feeling. He further says, “Band open with strong stations heard from Japan in the morning with north and south America booming thru in the afternoon my rx/tx station used was a Ranger dual band 10/12 mtr RCI2950DX3 with just 20 watts and a CB vertical called an I-Max 2000 at 58 feet. Best 73”
 
Good stuff, Martin you have worked some tremendous DX there with a modest set up, shows what can be done. Just the callsign or callsign and report is sufficient for these pages though.
Steven, 2E0NHR, worked Monday 7V60R 5/9 (Algerian sp/event), IZ6BXV 5/9 (using AM ) and RA/UY6IM 5/9. He says, “Poor list I'm afraid this week Tony...”
No matter, we work 10m when we can. I’ve just had no time this week.

Sun: 7 sunspot clusters with spot AR2205 having a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbours energy for strong X-class flares.

Stoke played superbly against West Ham but managed to give away a 2 goal lead to draw 2 – 2. Spurs next Sunday, I have a ticket.
