|Quite a good week with VK9MT and W1AW (varieties) running well. Loads of other DX about. I worked more Russians but my highlight was ZD7FT (St Helena Is), and M8C (Cray Valley, England).|
First, a reply from Steven, 2E0NHR who says the call R0000O is the Winter Olympic special call. Thanks for that Steven, I should have known, though in my defence I had R0000o and it just looked wrong. Also Steven worked UP7KEDR 5/9 on Tuesday. But in his words, “10m for me this week has been very poor...did the Sunday half of the Polish contest and didn’t get 1 QSO on it. Only worked 1 station this week!”
But he managed 2 on Wednesday, RO80KEDR 5/9 and 9K2F 5/9.
That’s how it goes some times. I’ve had grand children trouble.
Love them to bits but they do want to pull press or twiddle everything in my radio room.
Also Tuesday, Fauzan, 9W2FOR, worked JT1BV 5/9, ON4GI 5/9, PAOSJE 5/9, VU2RBI 5/9, ZS3Y 5/9, IZ6CLZ 5/9, IK6SNR 5/9, F2HEZ and heard WIAW/KH2 5/7, JE1RXJ 5/9, 9W2GSG 5/7,ZL7AAA 5/7, SV1PMR 5/7, OH4RF 5/9, DL4DKM 5/7, ZS6RHL 5/7. “Hi Tony, this week is school holiday. So I can worked lots on 10 meter band this week. I'm very lucky this week I worked 5 DXCC and 2 special event callsign in one day. That’s all for today, until we meet again Jumpa Lagi 73.”
Yes it’s school holidays here, hence the grand children in the shack.
9W2GSG, Nazmi , had a good day on Wednesday. He worked UR5UC, F4WBN, IK8NSR, SV7LYG, LZ1VVV, EA4GB, I2CCM, IZ3DVU, VU2UU, IZ8TZW, YO4DLA, 4L4C, ZS1VV, ZS6DAY and SV9/F6H. “Hi Tony..this is my report for you. SV9/F6HZD from Crete and 4L4C from Georgia are my new DXCCs..and now my personal record of DXCC on 10m is 99, one more to get 100DXCC..only on 10m band..tq Tony..73 from West Malaysia..jumpa lagi..”
Wow, that is very good. How long has it taken, from the start?
And from Arie. 9W2VVH, “Hi Tony. Greetings from Malaysia. On Apr 8, I wkd SP6NIC, SP3FFK, ES7RDR, SM5XGQ, DH4AE, IZ0HTR & SM4RNH in a short opening to EU midnight local time with moderate report 55-57 both side. Apr 9 - Only wkd DJ9FC and then QRT because of bad WX (cloudy and thunder). Any way... tnx Tony for your good job to compile all the 10m report every week. Tahniah dan senyum selalu. Terima kasih dan jumpa lagi. 73 de Arie.”
(As always Google translate is your friend. What Arie is saying is“Congratulations and smile always. Thank you and goodbye”.
From me, thanks to everyone who reads this and also to all the contributors.

Contests: Information from WA7BMN
Some interesting contests this week but no real biggy.
Upcoming activity (though not guaranteed to be on 10m). Information from NG3K, DXwatch.com and 425DXnews
Sun: Seven or so sunspot clusters but none with the energy needed to flare.
In only 5 days, Mars will make its closest approach to Earth since 2012.
Stoke lost to Chelsea 3 – 0. We were good for 30minutes and then we lost our way and they were too good. But at least it wasn’t 6 – 0 like Arsenal were beaten. Newcastle at The Brit, I’ll be there.
