May 15, 2014


Yet another odd week as we swing into the summer doldrums. Can’t be summer everywhere tho’ can it?
I will expect all you guys where it’s going to be winter to send in reports!

W1AW still striding forcefully on. 7Q7VW (Malawi), PY0F/UA4WHX (Fernando de Noronha) and JD1BMH (Ogasawara Is) were all very popular.

I worked no one as I was away on the island of Gran Canaria taking in some much needed sun and relaxation. Now I’m back and open for business again. And the time to send in reports is by 12:00 UTC on Wednesday or before please.

Sun: 7 sunspot clusters with AR2060 maybe flaring M-class style.
Today, the sun's atmosphere is split down the middle by a canyon-shaped coronal hole.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the chasm, which is almost directly facing Earth. (spaceweather.com)

Stoke City duly beat West Brom and Newcastle lost to Liverpool so Stoke climb to their largest-ever total of 50 points and their highest position of 9th. The new season awaits after the playoffs and the World Cup. There’s no escape from the footy this year!
