Once again today 10m has been open from dawn to dusk with some excellent DX to be worked on the band. Australian stations were being worked as early as 07:00z just too weak for me to work them today, before long South East Asia was being heard as I logged a few new band slots for 10m, 9M8Z Steve was preparing for his CQWW Contest entry from the shack in Sarawak East Malaysia. HS0ZIN Paul was strong 59 from Thailand. JY4CI Rafik also showed on 10m for another new band slot for me.
FY5KE in French Guiana kicked off the afternoon as the propagation moved to South America
G0KYA Steve writes in his Blog today how this phenomenon can probably be explained. You have to consider that although we are in the best month in the year for DX, what I have experienced on 10m in the past 36 hours is not that common at the bottom of the sunspot cycle. But what would I know? Amateur Radio has so much to teach me that I feel I am just at the beginning of the road of a very long journey. I hope the journey doesn’t end just yet!
Just a reminder that 9M8Z Steve will be active throughout the weekend during the CQWW Contest. QSL Via M0URX.
LoTW will be uploaded next week along with the online log search.
5,000 QSOs for 9M8Z and 2,000 QSOs from 9M6XRO have now been uploaded to LoTW
