No doubt about it AM70C was the most popular station all week using a mixture of digi, CW and SSB. I don’t think the operator was the same all the time! But it is proving to be a popular festival/anniversary/activity (not a contest!). The on-line organisation has been excellent.
I hope the CWC, Cricket World Cup will prove just as popular. I start as GB19AUS (Australia) at 12:00 UTC on Thursday (28.074 FT8). Dave G0KUC starts as GB19LL (Lord’s London) at 12:00 UTC Thursday. Many other stations will be using the GB19 calls till the end of CWC. More later.
There is also a Giro D’Italia award on too. More later.
A really cracking week on Ten Metres. I have worked all the AM70 stations on 10m and am looking for just 1 on 20m and 2 on 17m to complete my platinum certificate.
John, W2JPG , reports similar conditions. He says, “Worked: too many to list. A wild three days on 10 meters, from 5/24 to 5/26, worked 26 stations using FT8 digital. Mostly south USA and one Oklahoma KA5HET. I could have worked many more if I had the time.”

Currently the footy news is all about four English prem clubs. So forget that and swing into the cricket world cup. Listen out for me Thursday using GB19AUS from midday Thursday to 6pm local time, mainly 10m FT8 of course.
