November 5, 2015

A cracker of a week with 7 or more reported contacts needed to get into the lists.
And again lots of DX about. V73D (Marshall Is), J66CD (St. Lucia), C91B (Mozambique), PY0NY (Brazil), TT8AMO (Chad), E51EAQ (South Cook Is.) and stacks more. Saturday and Sunday were really very good but not quite as good as last weekend.

Saturday Mike, 2E0YYY worked RA4UID 5/9, UT2MZ 5/9, EA7KI 5/8, G4BLH 5/9, M6RUG 5/7, UR4MH 5/9, R1QA 5/9, KC1CET 5/9, HS0ZIN 5/5, EA8/DM6KG 5/9, R7NP 5/9, NP3RE 5/9, UA6ABN 5/7, M6XCP/M 5/7, J69EI 5/7, M0BNN 5/7, M6ZLM 5/5, GW0DSP 5/9, W4DOW 5/7, WA3DZS 5/8, KW4FF 5/7, G1PIR 5/7, 2E0SAE 5/6, G0BUB 5/9, RD5A 5/9, KD2RPJ 5/7, RU4LG 5/7, RA3GAG 5/8, 4Z5PT 5/7, G4HBI/M 5/7, N4EX 5/5, RW3SU 5/7, UA3AIU 5/7, M0MDA 5/5, UA3WBW 5/7, RA3DKM 5/5, VE2JCW 5/9, KC1BBU 5/8, GW4CQZ 5/9, 4X6DK 5/9, K8WAY 5/7, KM4HVE 5/7, PU1JAM 5/8, US5LZ 5/8, PU1VFC 5/7, UR7EZ 5/5, KI4AAU 5/9, 2E0ICE/M 5/9, RY7Y 5/9, WA4LQS 5/8, N4FY 5/9, W8DWG 5/8, K9VM 5/7, N2BTD 5/7, KE8ASY 5/9, VE2JFM 5/5, W4KRN 5/5, VA2MO 5/9, KA9PQB 5/9, KE3JP 5/7, W4TSH 5/9 , G4MKT 5/7, N8BB 5/8, G0WPO.

His comments were, “Hi Tony, Well with a bit of free time Saturday, I decided to drive the 50 miles from Stoke-on-Trent, up to SOTA summit G/SP-017 Billinge Hill, not too far from Wigan. Working portable from the trig point, with my FT-857, about 30 Watts, CB antenna and 22Ah battery, I enjoyed a pleasant couple of hours on the summit, with some nice DX entering my log. I did manage one 10m FM simplex contact, with SOTA Chaser Dow, W4DOW in Virginia 5/9 both ways.” 

Sunday he worked a load more: G4ACS 5/8, VK2FJC 5/8, DJ5AV 5/3, VK5PAS 5/3, TA2AKG 5/5, SV2FLM 5/8, R6LM 5/7, UA3RAT5/7, RO6N 5/9, UR5ADG 5/9, UY3IQ 5/7, UA4PT 5/9, VK6NU 3/1, UN8GEQ 5/8, EA8PT 5/9, RU0YYL 5/7 and S590IARU 5/9.
This time he says, “Buoyed up with Saturdays SOTA activation of Billinge Hill, I packed the rucksack and set off for an early Sunday morning activation of my local SOTA summit G/SP-017 Gun, very close to Leek in Staffordshire. When I arrived at the trig point at 0630z, I was greeted with glorious WX. This was mainly a 20m activation, however, I couldn't resist a look at the 10m band, using the same setup as the day before, where I was rewarded with some nice DX. Good to work SOTA Activator/Chaser and contributor to "Tonys 10 Metre Band Report" Paul VK5PAS, on both 10 and 20 Metres.”

Very well done Mike, amazing for a mobile station.

Sun: Only three sunspot clusters but 2 have the potential for flares.
 
Stoke City managed a draw to take a point away from Newcastle.
This Saturday we have under pressure Chelsea at the Brit, I’ll be there.
