TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - April 21, 2016

April 21, 2016


The week was once again poorly populated though the weekend did perk up.
A25UK (Botswana) was popular as was CV5A (Uruguay), V51YJ (Namibia) and YV5RED (Venezuela) but there were others.

It seems to me that we are headed down

a slippery slope into a solar minimum.

Sun: Two spots only with big sunspot AR2529 about to rotate off the solar disk, leaving the face of the sun mostly blank and quiet. We are rolling gradually into the sunspot minimum.
 
Stoke City lost 0 – 4 against a rampant and skilled Spurs. To be honest they should have had 7. We were as poor defensively as they were swift and accurate.

Manchester City away Saturday, what can I say?
