TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - January 8, 2015

22:02 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments













Not a bad week on Ten but variable.

1A0C (Special Malta) came out top most days. However there was a lot of DX about.
T6T (Afghanistan), S01WS (Western Sahara), CT3MD (Madeira Is) and more.

Again I didn’t work much, a couple of Russians, South Africa and the USA. Now that Xmas and New Year are over things may get back to normal for me.

2E0YYY, Mike , worked a varied bunch of stations on Saturday. RM2A 5/9, UA4M 5/9, YT2VPB 5/9, DL6DBA 5/9, R3AXAJ 5/7, UA3GJM 5/8, IZ8YVF 5/7, UA3GJM 57, IZ8YVF 5/7, UA3GIU 5/7, UA6CFQ 5/7, PP8JO/AM 5/8, G8MIA 5/2, EA8AZD 5/9, IZ8CEU 5/7, EW2AJ 5/5, YO2MMO 5/9, WA2UFD 5/5, YO7GNL 5/8, 3V8ST 5/9, IT9WNU 5/9, WD4IBQ 5/7, KF4IBQ 5/7, UT1DX 5/9, HB0ZIN 5/5, K7LES 5/8, KF4WLQ 5/5, UR5CDD 5/5, 9F2SH 5.

“Hi Tony, a visit to the radio shack on Saturday afternoon was the order of the day. In my humble opinion, conditions were down on last week. There were a few bright spots with Sandro PP8JO/AM flying 72 Passengers at 17000 ft along the Amazon answered my CQ, 3V8ST in Tunisia making my log, a nice contact with Abel 9F2SH in Ethiopia AND of course, not forgetting Stoke City, who can seem to do no wrong at the moment!”
 
I am well impressed with the PP8JO/AM although he’s not listed anywhere?? Hmm? And Stoke City are doing well, but a stern test this weekend at Arsenal.

Sun: 6 sunspots and a G2-class geomagnetic storm erupted during the early hours of Jan. 7th, sparking bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) continues to brighten, and it can now be seen with the naked eye even from light-polluted urban areas. (spaceweather.com)
 
We managed a draw against Manchester United but we so could have won it. And we beat Wrexham in the FA Cup and now take on Rochdale in the next round. Arsenal at the Emirates next Sunday, it’s on TV.
