Hi All..another great conditions day..lately the 10mtr band has been tuff to operate due to the OTH radar and solar flares..not today and most likely not tomorrow..today between 1600 to 1700 UTC I managed very long QSOs with Howarth GW3TMP and Mervyn GW8TBG..both well over S9 with excellent audio..heard other ops working plenty of fellas here..for us on the east coast the optimum time remains at 1400 to 1700 UTC for most of Europa....just b/4 I went QRT was Rick VE6CQ on his "favorite" freq 29.060 calling CQ...the 2 odd signals reported awhile back are still there although 29.130 is almost non-existent..however 29.100 a carrier only has been as high up as S9+10..??  gud luk  73 de DAVE WB1EAD

Gud morn/aft..seems that we had a major disruption from Ol' Sol..mostly very quiet for several days..today it was very much open..only annoying thing was that constant "fog horn" sounding OTH radar..I've heard all kinds of theories of where it originates from..anyone know precisely who/where/why..?....on the plus side lots of mid-west and west coast on now as I type..earlier the "bigger" stations from across the pond were there..some making it thru the "racket"..gud luk !! 73 de DAVE WB1EAD

Hi All..if ya loves the buzz buzz ooh gah sounds..you wud be at home on 10mtrs..what a racket !!..in spite of that a couple gud "Q"s today with G3YPZ & G3XGW..both John & Keith were running KW Vangaurds..pretty gud signals actually..both of them well over S9..this was on 29.070..had to go up high..awful racket on 29.000..OTH radar at 20 over..now on the "oddity" reporting..I see the big carrier on 29.100 has gone bye bye..the one on 29.130 has never been stronger..varying between S9 to 30 over..some day it will either disappear or be identified..??   the 15/10mtr AM sections look gud this weekend..
                                                   Take care c ya on AM !   73 de DAVE WB1EAD
