Not as 'Special' as last week but still good enough to need the entry point to the list raised to 5 reported contacts.
Again the weekend was best with Sunday top. 6V7S (Senegal) was popular along with 5V7TH (Togo).
HT9H (Nicaragua) was top a couple of days with IS0BSR (Sardinia) top on Sunday.
Just a quick reminder to get your reports to me before 12:00UTC on Wednesday. Some times I can include later ones but often I cannot.
This one came from Mike, KK2DOG too late for last week. “Wednesday worked ZS5ZLB 5/8, ZS2XD 5/8, PY5AP 5/9, JA8EPO 5/8 and JA3JOT 5/9. The DOG got loose on Halloween!”

Another Mike, 2E0YYY, had a good Friday. He worked CX3TQ 5/8, PY2RAR 5/8, LU5ULV 5/5, CE3CTG 5/9, PP5AIM 5/8, CN8YZ 5/9, PU2YZO 5/9, HI7SBR 5/5, CX6DZ 5/9, W5RCG 5/7, 8R1AK 5/7, PU2LGU 5/9, CU1EZ 5/7, PV8RF 5/8, LU3FM 5/9, PY5WX 5/9 and LU8HH 5/7.
And he had an even better Saturday working YO7ARY 5/7, UW7LL 5/7, IK7HTB 5/7, YO7BPC 5/5, SV3JZT 5/8, UA3BV 5/8, UR6IKK 5/9, RA3ZSQ 5/9, Y03GXC 5/9, 2E0YAQ 5/4, 9H1SV 5/9, IK7RVY 5/5, UT4UFL 5/8, IZ7XIB 5/9, IZ8JCS 5/9, YO3HBK 5/9, LZ12KL 4/1, IZ7NFA 5/9, IZ8JDG 5/9, IZ8JCS 5/9, A61K 5/9, IT9BUN 5/9, IT9ACJ 5/9, US2MM 5/9, ZS5SAM 5/3, ZS6GRL 5/3, ZR6DG 5/9, IZ7MFY 5/5, SV8GRJ 5/8, SV3HHH 5/8, ZS6ARQ 5/9, ZS1LBN 5/8, ZS6TAN 5/5, ZS6YH 5/7, ZS1GRM 5/7, ZS6TAN 5/3, FH4VOS 5/5, RK3QY 5/9, RA3AAP 5/9, R3AA 5/9, 3B8CW 5/9, ZS1CEV 5/5, Z81D 5/5, ZS1XG 5/5, EA8CTF 5/7, CT3FT 5/7, CN8YAN 5/7, KK4HHL 5/9, EA3NW 5/3, W2EO 5/1, KJ4BK 5/7 and M1EYP/P 5/1.
And from VK5MRD, aka Busy Big Dave, comes just this. 
“Only one station worked today, very limited on time. Stations heard were:- VK8VF/b and VK2RSY/b and worked was IK6CWQ.”

Sun: 4 sunspots with none being really active.
From spaceweather.com comes some slightly depressing news.
Forecasters have long expected the Solar Max of 2013 to be the weakest of the Space Age. It might be even weaker than they thought. As shown in this 20-year plot of sunspot counts vs. time, the sun is underperforming:




Sunspot numbers are notoriously variable, so the actual counts could rapidly rise to meet or exceed the predicted curve. For now, however, the face of the sun is devoid of large sunspots, and there have been no strong flares in more than a week. The threshold of Solar Max looks a lot like Solar Min. NOAA forecasters estimate no more than a 1% chance of X-class solar flares in the next 24 hours.”
