TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - February 11, 2016

21:22 Fernando Luiz de Souza 0 Comments








February 11, 2016

The week was steady and poor most of the time but once again the weekend came up with the goods.
I would normally have raised the requirement to get into the list but left it at 3 contacts to show the comparison weekday to weekend.

Once more VP8SGI (South Georgia Is) reigned supreme except for Sunday when VR2XMT (Hong Kong) jumped up to top.

I worked nothing this week. So here is a picture of our new Australian grandson, Adam

Saturday Faustino, PY2VOA, worked PW8DX 5/9, Tuesday PU8WHJ 5/9, FY5HB 5/9 and HI8JQE 5/7.

Andy, M0HLT, worked KP4EIT 3/3 - 5/1 and heard CX8DS, VK3EW and N4SVC on Saturday.
He says, “Hi Tony, a interesting weekend with openings to VK3, KP and CX. The VK was quite loud (4/4) on my indoor roof dipole, he was also quite strong on 12m as well. I never worked VP8SGI or STI, the propagation was not there (at least I couldn't hear them) although a few locals (in Wiltshire) worked them on several bands/modes.”
Nice ones Andy, easily beats my nil.

Sun: 5 sunspots but none are vastly active although a CME is possible Wednesday.

Stoke City were so poor last Saturday it was just unbelievable.

Had we been playing against 11 barrels of water, the barrels would have been 0 – 3 up at half time.
Bournemouth away this weekend. We need to win or we will drop down the table. We have had only 1 league win in 6 matches.
