TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - June 4, 2015

June 4, 2015


A very strange week, especially for me.
All I heard was a ZS station.

The early part of the week was generally poor. Then from mid week to Friday there were far more spotters than DX. The contest weekend was OK but well below what one would normally expect for a contest.

DX: 5Z0L (Kenya), and whole variety of AO150s (Spain) just about sum up the week. 5Z0L was an Italian DX team.

On Saturday Joe G3ZDF, heard 9M2TO, 9M2M, YC1DUR, YE1C, 5H3EE and ZR9C. He says, “Having a quick listen during WW WPX on Saturday about 11.15 and these were the only calls I heard during a 15 minute period. Very peculiar/interesting propagation.” That’s a lot more than I heard.

Most popular DX (three or more contacts, any mode)

Sun: Just 3 very quiet sunspots.

No footy worth talking about till Barça take on Juventus at the weekend. My money’s on Barça.
And England lost the 2 nd Test Match against New Zealand. The Ashes look far away.
