May 6, 2016

Not a great week but better than last week, though Friday was poor.

I did manage to work 9A709A (Croatia) on SSB 59+ both ways and SP9DRT on psk31.
Best DX was probably EP2A (Iran), PU5SSR (Brazil), KH8/KC0W (Samoa), 8Q7CA (Maldives), A91HI (Bahrain) and FM5DN (Martinique) with a cracking set of antennas.

Stoke City were winning 1 – 0 against Sunderland when we gave away a penalty in the last minute of extra time. Doh! Crystal Palace away this Saturday, I have a ticket.
