Yet another dull week with little to shout about. Most popular DX TA7I (Turkey), V84SAA (Brunei) andFM8QR (Martinique).
I feel sure that’s an old KW HF amplifier in his shack picture on QRZ.com.
Thursday, John W2JPG, said, “Tony, I haven't heard or worked any station on 10 meters since 1/26/19. The band has been absolutely dead here on the East coast of USA. I did work a few stations on 12 meters though and 15 meters has been hot! Summer is coming soon!”
I get the picture John (no pun on your call-sign intended). But in the next report he says,
“A dozen stations worked. 10 meters finally opened up today 2/8/19. Strong signals via FT8 and voice. As of 1400 Hrs. the band was still open.”
Nothing in the UK. Did hear the Russian Arctic station on 17m, just the once.

On Monday, an historic winter storm pounded Hawaii with hurricane force winds, massive waves, and snow in some unusual places. Maui was blanketed in snow at altitudes as low as 6200 feet--the lowest snowfall since 1952. At the 10,023-foot summit of Maui's Haleakala volcano, many world-class telescopes were frozen solid.
Stoke lost 0 – 1 to West Brom. Whatever happened to the chant “We always beat West Brom”, not in ages we haven’t.
At least the cricket and the rugby have been good.
Wigan away Wednesday evening and Ipswich away on Saturday.
Now you can help Tony to compile his ten-metre report.
