SOLAR CYCLE 24
All 10M AM QSO's from
10th March 2011 onwards .....

My 10 Metre AM log - stations I have worked in Solar Cycle
Please click to enlarge and return with your back arrow.
Shown beside David VK2BA is the
BA320 7MHz/29MHz transmitter. On the left, top shelf: the power supplies for the
ART13 which is sitting on the lower shelf. On the centre shelf is an
antenna tuner, my "Buggary Box" and the 29MHz VFO. The "Buggary Box" does two
things: it contains a 4 way frequency multiplier so that the frequency of the
VFO can be read on a frequency counter, and it has a divide by two divider and
amplifier which takes the VFO output and drives the BA320 at half frequency or
3.5 MHz for operation on 7 MHz. It is never a good idea to drive a transmitter
with the same frequuency as the output. That is a good way to develop spurious
outputs or oscillations.

The following is an extract from my station log.
The details are not complete and there may be errors - but it does indicate the
general activity on 29MHz AM.
I would really like to add your
callsign to my 10 metre AM log. I am on air most days between 2100Z and 0000Z if
there is propagation,
usually on 28.995 MHz. Point your beam at about 240 degrees. No
beam? I work many stations with vertical antennas and dipoles. I even worked a
station with an indoor antenna!
I do not like working on 29.000MHz - that is best used as
a calling frequency. I may appear on that frequency to alert you chaps of band
My current US State total =
I still need:
VT, NV, and SD on 10M
I am happy to QSL any contact. However postal charges are very expensive in Australia and I receive many
requests for direct QSL's so If you wish for a direct QSL,
then please supply an addressed envelope and some IRC's or a green stamp or two.
Please note that I
do not use the buro
