TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - June 18, 2015

June 18, 2015


Well we have had better weeks on 10m. Sunday was good but the rest of the week was well down.

This week’s stars were 5U5U (Niger), CX3DAM (Uruguay), 9N7CW (Nepal), E20WXA (Thailand), 4W/PE7T (Timor Leste) and OJ0B (Market Reef).
I worked 1 station, another G, on PSK31.

VU2DSI, Datta, has sent in a plea to all lovers of 10m.
QRN on 10m from Over The Horizon Radar

“All 10 meter operators must have noticed the whistle type two-tone noise signals created by radar operating over horizon on the amateur radio 10 meter band whenever the band is open. This noise of radar over the horizon is now for more than FOUR years. The intensity of the noise is very high from 28490 kHz up to band edge. This noise always disturbs DXing on this band.
The location of the radar is maybe either in Singapore or Iran??
As I am a fan of 10 meters, many friends from ON, OZ, LA & G/M ask about this noise.

I request all the 10m fans (hams) who are aware of this noise to write complain to IARU/ Monitoring stations in their country. I request Amateur Radio Clubs around the world to take this matter to the appropriate authority on behalf of all.”
Well said.

Sun: 5 sunspots. Solar activity is low, but the chance of flares is increasing. Prompted by the emergence of big new sunspot AR2371, NOAA forecasters have boosted the odds of an M-class eruption to 30% on June 17th. (spaceweather.com)

England beat Slovenia 3 -2 in the run up to the Euros.
The England cricket team are in danger of being overwhelmed by New Zealand but it’s interesting. It’s not real cricket though.

And Stoke’s first match of the season is at home to Liverpool in early August. 6 – 1 for us again.
