October 29, 2015

A really fabulous week on 10m. Two to three thousand contacts per day during the week with 11300 on Saturday and 11900 on Sunday. Wow!!
There was so much DX it’s hard to pick out the most sought after, but here goes. D4D (Cape Verde Is), V73D (Marshall Is), CN2AA (Morocco), 5J0B (San Andres and Providencia), and so, so many more, just look through the list.

Shankar A65CR, had a good crack in the contest. He worked VU2CPL, DL5K, OH9A, YL1ZT, VK6NC, HS5NMF, JA7OWD, R7AM, UW2M, LZ2WP, RU6K, RW0BG, JR5YCE, UT7E, OK7K, VR2XAN, XW1IC, 9M8K, VU2LBW, JH3EDG, RM3F, JG3RPL, JH4UYB, BA7QT, VK4UC, LA8HGA and JA2IVK on Saturday.

Remarkable when, as he says, “Glad to be back on 10m after a long time . Worked 200 stations on 10m on the weekend + CQWW ! Will now be regular on the weekends. Still running 50W from my apartment balcony with a Buddipole!”
 
Wayne, M6WCE , worked 5B4ALX 5/9 Friday, B7M, VK4KW 5/9, D4Z 5/9, 4X7R 5/9 Saturday and NV4L Sunday 5/9.
He says, “Hi Tony, also worked a few USA and local DX i.e. Europe. 10m has been really deaf for me last couple of months glad to get an opening for WWCQ. B7M was hard work as you can imagine the pile up and only 10w. Working conditions here Yaesu ft 857 md200 mike and Sirio Gainmaster for 10. Cheers Tony wish you good DX and best 73's Wayne M6WCE”
I can imagine B7M would be a struggle.
 
PY2VOA, Faustino , was active again, Friday he worked FM4NB 5/9 and PP7GR 5/9.
If you look closely you’ll find our intrepid SOTA enthusiast, 2E0YYY/P, Mike in the list.

Sun: 5 sunspots with none likely to flare.

Look east before sunrise in late October for a beautiful conjunction of bright planets.

Stoke City lost badly to Watford at the Brit. Then we beat Chelsea in the Capital Cup. That’s soccer for you.
