TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 15, 2016

April 15, 2016


Conditions have been exceedingly poor on Ten Metres this past week. I have listened, called CQ on PSK31, JT65 and SSB and heard nothing.

In the end I had to go to 15m to work a station or two to make sure my IC7600 was working OK. It is.
Ten is just dead into the UK.

Having said that FT4JA (Juan de Nova Is) and VK0EK (Heard Is) were able to work stacks of stuff. SO1WS (Western Sahara) was also about.

Sun: Big yet mostly quiet sunspot AR2529 is directly facing Earth. There is one other.
 
Stoke City lost the plot in the 2 nd half against Liverpool away and went down 4 – 1. Spurs and the Brit next Monday evening. A pint and a curry after win or lose.
