TONY'S 10 METRE BAND REPORT - June 16, 2016

June 16, 2016

Not a bad week at all. Monday was a bit on the thin side but the rest of the week just got better till Sunday was huge. Even I managed to get in to the spotters list again working mainly JT65.

The best DX seemed to be S51DX (Slovenia), XR0YS (Easter Is), R85WTA (Russia), ES5GP and TM16EURO (France Euro soccer special)



It seems that M0NKR, Andy, and G0TSM, Darren both worked XR0YS on June 7th. Info from CDXC via Steve G0KYA. There was some discussion on the RSGB Propagation Studies Committee as to the mechanism for this.

Steve’s opinion was, “One contact was on 12m CW S5 at 20:51UTC June 7 in Norfolk using a Force 12 XR6 (effectively 2-3 el on 12m and 10m - don't ask) and about 400W at about 60ft in the UK.
The second was on 10m CW at 20:28 on June 7 in Southampton using a 5 Ele Yagi at 45ft. 
 
The Easter Island end was using an Expert 1.3K-FA amp and a 2el Hexbeam for 20-6 meters
Factor in the power/gain and I'm certain it was F layer now and with a bit of luck thrown in.

VOACAP shows it is more than possible given the power/gain at 20:00-21:00UTC. Even our very own "Proppy" (predest.uk) hints at an MUF approaching 28MHz.” 

I think I’d better get on with this beam before I go in for a linear amp. (G4CJC)

Jeremy, G3IMW chipped in with, “I may be able to throw some more light on this. I was monitoring DX Summit 6m spots during the afternoon of 7/6/16. US W1, W4 , & W5 stations were spotting working, or hearing, EA8 & CT1. This would have to be via Summer multi-hop Es at this part sunspot cycle. Es over the Atlantic could well be present till 20:00. I suspect Easter Island could be reached via chordal hop F2 TEP where MUF can be 1.5 times terrestrial F2 MUF.( The geomagnetic equator bends S crossing PY and OA ) So multi-hop Es plus F-type TEP sounds possible. Anyway it was an interesting event!”

England play Wales Thursday, should be interesting.

The premiership fixture list is just out. Stoke start with Middlesbrough then onto Manchester City. That’s ages away yet.
