December 25, 2014


W1AW was top station every day of the week but there was lots of other DX about with unusual calls OF9X (Old Father 9 Xmas, Finland), OH9SCL (Santa Claus Land Finland), S567O (Slovenia), 8J2VE (Japan), XW4XR (Laos), SU8YOTA (Egyptian Youngsters On The Air) and loads more.
George, MW0SWR , (nice callsign) says,

“Have you heard the arm on 28.605 two tone carrier 50kc wide.”

Don’t know about Arm? But it’s happened before, I guess it’s Over the Horizon Radar splashing about. What’s its origin I wonder?

Mike, 2E0YYY has been running wild on 10m. On SSB on Friday he worked M0MDA 5/5, UR8EW 5/9, DJ5AV 5/2, RA6YJ 5/9, UT5MD 5/9, OH6GHI 5/7, G0DBE 5/9, M3HJH 5/7, YV5HNJ 5/9, UT2IO 5/9, 9H5DX 5/9, RA3UO 5/9, UV5EVZ 5/9, 4Z1KM, 5/5, SV2OXW 5/5, EI9GLB 5/2, UA0BJO/P 5/9, VP8LP 5/9, G4ZRP 5/5, CT7ACG 5/9, 2E0HTC 5/9, G4EHD 5/9, YO8RAU 5/8, UA1CDA 5/8, G4RRM 5/9, KB1RJD 5/5, KB1RJD 5/5, VE1WT 5/7, SV2RMK/P 5/7, KB1HCT 5/5, W1URV 5/7, K4WP 5/7, KK4LGC 5/5, W1OW 5/7, W4DOW 5/5, KI1WWU 5/5, WH6LE 5/8, UA3GJM 5/9, LZ1ZC 5/9, N3CML 5/4, KP4UNO 5/5, N2EBB 5/6, HB9MKV 5/2, AI4JU 5/9.

“Friday morning I decided to activate SOTA summit G/SP-017 Billinge Hill, not too far from St. Helens. Conditions at the trig point were wet, cold and extremely windy and getting the CB antenna into the air was a struggle. As ever, the SOTA chasers are always keen to work the 10m band when conditions allow.” 

Also on FM G4ZRP 5/9, G6ODU 5/9, IZ8OF0 5/9, HP2BWJ 5/5, SV2CLJ 5/9 , KB1RJC 5/7, W4DOW 5/7, AE4FZ 5/8, KV4UL 5/6, SV2JZS 5/8. “These were the Stations I worked from Billinge Hill on on 10m FM on Fridays activation. Really pleased to work Jose HP2BWJ in Panama on FM!”
“I was tempted to activate a SOTA summit again on Sunday, however, the very high winds put me off and I went into the radio shack instead. I've really got the bug for working 10m fm simplex and just like Friday, I ran into Panama again...Talk about feast or famine! The mode was hard work though and so I QSY'd to SSB”. RDWW 5/7, RX3ZL 5/9, W1OW 5/9, KK4MGK 5/7, HP2DP 5/9, UT3VL 5/9, K8JTY 5/1, RZ3BJ 5/9, KB1UIF 5/9, VE1WT 5/9, K1IED 5/9, K8ZT 5/5, W4PSK 5/3, KC1TQ 5/5, WZ8DX 5.

“Here’s my SSB log for Sunday. Once again, no shortage of North American stations.” KA1EZH 5/9, N1AKN/M 5/9, UA6ANT 5/5, KA1KLO 5/9, WD0CXS 5/5, KC1CIZ 5/5, VA3ONO 5/9, KK4ORP 5/9, AB3C 5/3, PU2RTO 5/7, ZR6CSI 5/1, IT9CNF/M 5/9, VA3AAA 5/9, AA1BQ5/5, PU2NGW 5/9, EA8AZD 5/9, PYILEO 5/9, LU7KGB 5/5, WZ8DX 5/5, LX4D 5/5, W3PAL 5/5, VE3PVI 5/8, W1MKA 5/9, KK4WGE 5/3, K3SAE 5/9, W3TMB 5/9, N2BTD 5/8, KJ4SKO 5/9, K4OVW 5/7, K1WJL 5/9, K2RPM 5/9, KB1TAB 5/9, KX2AB 5/9, WA2EMF 5/8, W8FBE 5/9, WA1AYY 5/9, WP4JAC 5/5, N1AWQ 5/3, ZP6VLA 5/5, K8LEN 5/5, KD3XB 5/5, WA3WIF 5/8, W9PRD 4/2.
“I see Stoke City are at home to Chelsea on Monday evening and away to Everton on Boxing Day. Two tough matches indeed! 73 Mike 2E0YYY”.

That’s right and we have Manchester United at home on New Year’s day. A tough Xmas session
 
Koos, PDKUH is new to Ten Metres, so Welcome! All on data modes, Sunday he worked RZ3DOH 599, UA3GIE 597, RZ3BM 596, RA3LJ 599, RN3DL 599. “Not much time for radio, but enough.” Monday he worked RQ7K 5/9, UX4LX 5/9, R6AV 5/9, UT3IB 5/9, PG200KMAR 5.
“Less propagation than I expected, but I'm relatively new to 10 meters and propagation is almost magic to me.” 

 
When it’s as good as it has been over the past couple of weeks it’s magic to all of us.

Sun: 8 sunspot clusters with Earth-facing sunspot AR2244 having a ''beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class solar flares.
 
Stoke City were beaten by Chelsea side with better finishing skills 0 – 2. We were not disgraced but their long range passing was good and our passing was poor on occasions.
