TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - February 4, 2016

February 4, 2016

What a disappointing week. I have not heard a single signal all week (but see below). The DX from the previous week showed strongly again. K5P (Palmyra), VP8STI ( South Sandwich Is) along with VK6IR (Australia), VP8LP (Falklands) and CX9BU (Uruguay).

I quite like this QSL card.


 

Kevin, VK4UH , tells me that the VK4RC (RedCliffe) beacon is now active on 28,265 MHz. It’s on IRLP node 6404 and Echolink node 44666. It’s slightly odd as it shows as VK4RC-R but announces itself as VK4IT.

I must get Kevin to clarify that.
 
And just before the deadline I managed to work my first Australian call on 10m PSK31, VK6LC.

Sun: None of the three sunspots poses a threat for strong flares. Solar activity is low.

Stoke City lost to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup by a single goal.

As is often the case with Stoke we squandered chances.

Everton at home this coming Saturday, I’ll be there.
