The Gateway Chapter

Who We Are

Ten-Ten International Net, or 10-10 for short, is an organization of amateur radio operators dedicated to maintaining high levels of amateur radio communications on the 10 meter amateur band (28.0-29.7 MHz). Established in 1962, 10-10 has grown continuously since that day, with some ups and downs according to the numbers of sunspots and the openness of the band. As you read this, the number of 10-10 numbers issued to members now exceeds 77,000. 10-10 would welcome your membership in the organization if you have an amateur radio license with 10 meter privileges.

The Gateway Chapter Membership is primarily from the greater St. Louis, MO metroplex. Our Chapter was formed in 1972 by Don Wirth, WB0ECM #3218, and we are very proud of the number of nearly consecutive Net Sessions (Currently 2336 - every Wednesday for over 44 years!). We missed only once due to v056ery severe weather and a widespread power outage. The Chapter meets every Wednesday evening (local Time) on 28.650 MHz (+/- QRM) at 2000 Local Time (Thursday (UTC), 0100Z Summers and 0200Z Winters). We conduct informal, "open" nets and all amateur radio operators are cordially invited to attend for the purpose of exchanging ten-ten numbers and for general rag chewing.

How To Join The Gateway Chapter

Membership in the Gateway Chapter is available to any ham who has a 10-10 number and who resides within ground wave range of the St. Louis area. We also offer a certificate (but not Gateway membership) to other 10-10 members who contact and exchange 10-10 data (10-10#, Call Sign, Operator's Name, Contact Date, City and State/Country) with five (5) Gateway members.
The cost is only $1.00 for a lifetime membership! Send your contact information along with one dollar (non-recurring) to our Certificate Manager, Henry Schaper, KA0AWS, 241 Tapestry Dr., St. Louis, MO 63129 and Henry will send you a handsome non-propagating Gateway Chapter Certificate suitable for framing. A rare bargain indeed!

How To Join 10-10 International

It is required that you contact ten 10-10 members (on 10 meters), listing their information as noted on the Membership Application form (10-10#, Call Sign, Operator's Name, Contact Date, City and State/Country).

Jan Alvestad's Remarks & Forecast (http://www.solen.info/solar/):

Propagation Forecast
Recent developments: "The geomagnetic field was quiet to active on August 29, a brief disturbance was observed after 18h UT. Solar wind speed at SOHO ranged between 275 and 425 km/s. Solar flux at 20h UTC on 2.8 GHz was 84.3 (increasing 9.9 over the previous solar rotation). The average 90 day 10.7 flux at 1 AU was 78.7. The Potsdam WDC planetary A index was 8 (STAR Ap - based on the mean of three hour interval ap indices: 8.1). Three hour interval K indices: 11111242 (planetary), 12222343 (Boulder) The background x-ray flux is at the class B2 level. At the time of counting spots (see image time), spots were observed in 7 active regions using 2K resolution (SN: 112) and in 4 active regions using 1K resolution (SN: 57) SDO images on the visible solar disk. Region 12672 [N06W49] gained a few small spots and was quiet. New region 12673 [S08E64] rotated into view early on August 28 and was numbered by SWPC the next day. New region 12674 [N13E79] rotated fully into view revealing two large spots. Although the region is currently magnetically not very complex, an M class flare is possible. Spotted regions not numbered (or interpreted differently) by SWPC: S5773 [N20W44] reemerged with a tiny spot. S5777 [N11W13] was quiet and stable. New region S5780 [N18W57] emerged with a tiny spot. New region S5781 [S07E05] emerged with a tiny spot. "
Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs):
" August 27-29 No obviously Earth directed CMEs were observed in available LASCO imagery. "Coronal Holes: "A recurrent northern hemisphere coronal hole (CH822) will likely rotate across the central meridian on August 28-30. Propagation and Forecast: "Long distance low and medium frequency (below 2 MHz) propagation along paths north of due west over upper middle latitudes is poor. Propagation on long distance northeast-southwest paths is poor. Forecast The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled on August 30. Quiet to active conditions are likely on August 31 - September 2 due to effects from CH822, minor storm intervals are possible.
24 Hour Summary: (Courtesy of www.solarham.net and NASA) "olar activity reached low levels. Region 2672 (N06W50, Cso/beta) continued to show signs of steady decay having lost most of its trailing spots. Region 2673 (S08E62, Hsx/alpha) was mostly unchanged and stable. Region 2674 (N11E70, Dko/beta) was numbered this period and produced several B-class flares in addition to a C3/Sf flare at 29/0300 UTC, a C1 flare at 29/0621 UTC, and a C1 flare at 29/2218 UTC. A CME was observed in SOHO/LASCO C2 coronagraph imagery off the west limb at approximately 28/1930 UTC. Forecaster analysis and WSA/Enlil modeling have confirmed that the bulk of the material will miss Earth to the east. However, some of the material is expected to get caught up in the solar wind and influence the near-Earth environment on day three (1 Sep). .Forecast... Solar activity is expected to be at low to very low levels with a slight chance for M-flares (R1-R2, Minor-Moderate) over the next three days (30 Aug-1 Sep). "

Solar activity was very low and only low-level background flares were observed this period. Region 2488 (N03E12, Dai/beta) exhibited minor growth but Regions 2486 (S19W09, Hrx/alpha) and 2487 (S12W05, Cao/beta) were in decay. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) werehttp://www.solen.info/solar/ observed in available coronagraph imagery.Solar activity reached moderate levels this period. Region 2665 (S06W36, Dhi/beta) produced a long-duration M2/1n flare at 14/0209 UTC which was accompanied by several low-level radio bursts and Type-IV radio sweeps. An associated asymmetric halo CME was observed in LASCO C2 coronagraph imagery beginning at 14/0125 UTC, and initial analysis of this event suggests arrival late on 16 Jul. .Forecast... Solar activity is expected to be at low levels with a chance for additional M-class flare activity over the next three days (14-16 Jul). .Forecast... Solar activity is expectedSolar activity was very low. A long duration B1 flare occurred at 11/0144 UTC from a plage region located near N10W30. A CME could be seen lifting off the source region at approximately 11/0100 UTC in SDO/AIA 193 imagery followed by an post eruptive arcade structure. A likely associated CME was observed in SOHO/LASCO C2 imagery beginning at 11/0248 UTC off the west limb. WSA/Enlil Analysis of the event is in progress. .Forecast...

Quick callsign lookup:Long distance low and medium frequency (below 2 MHz) propagation along paths north of due west over upper middle latitudes is fair. Propagation on long distance northeast-southwest paths is poor. Forecast The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet most of July 8. During the latter half of July 8 and on July 9-10 effects from CH812 could cause unsettled to active conditions.

Solar activity was at low levels. A C3 flare occurred at 18/0941 UTC, with an associated CME first visible in LASCO C2 imagery at 18/1000 UTC. Initial analysis concluded the CME source region is on the East limb and will likely be off the Sun-Earth line. However, further forecaster analysis and WSA/Enlil modelling will occur to determine if the ejecta has an Earth-directed component. The final determination will be noted in the next discussion at 19/0030 UTC. .Forecast... Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for C-class flare activity and a slight chance for an M-class flare (R1-R2, Minor -Moderate radio blackout) on days one through three (18-20 Apr) due to the anticipated return of Region 2644 (N13, L=057), which produced occasional R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate) radio blackouts during its previous transit.
