TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - February 18, 2016

February 18, 2016


What a week in comparison with either of the previous two weeks and probably further back than that. I had to increase to five or more the reported contacts to get into the lists. As usual Wednesday was not the greatest and Saturday and Sunday burst forth. 7P8C was top from Wednesday onwards.



We just had a most welcome surprise in the form of a report from one of our old favourites, Arie, 9W2VVH. He says, “Hi Tony. Apa khabar?/How are you? Last weekend I was joint top in the CQ WPX RTTY as Single Opr 10m Low power. Total 53 QSOs, 49 WPX from 21 DXCC - 9A, A3, A7, BY, DU, F, HA, I, IT9, JA, KH6, LZ, SP, UA, UA9, UR, VK, VR, YB, YO & ZL.”
Well done, I haven’t tried RTTY though I’m often to be found in the PSK section of 10m.

Sun: Only three sunspots with AR2497 looking possible for flares.
 
Stoke beat Bournemouth 1 – 3 away. Villa next, in two weeks. We must beat them and keep them down. We will be nearly at the magic 40 points which means we’re probably going to stay up.
