December 29, 2016


Probably worse than last week, not even the festive weekend could revive things. Still we plod on.
I worked EA, OZ and M0 on JT65. Then shortly before posting this report I worked 3 OE3 stations on SSB at 59. So may be things are looking up?
 
Tuesday, Paul, VK5PAS, worked ZL2SP, VK2PDW, VK7NWT, VK5CZ, ZL2VR, VK2HBG, ZL4BEN, ZL2SP/m, ZL3RJ, VK2XLJ, VK2KT, ZL3OZ, ZL1UPB, VK4FSCC, VK2QM, VK5NBQ, VK2HFP and ZL1LU. Wednesday, VK4FJDW, VK6VCK/p and VK6AKT. Thursday, VK2MOR, VK5GP, VK4GMH, VK4HAV, VK6VCK/p, VK2QK and VK2TAZ. Friday, VK9NM, JG1UKW and JF1IRW. Although Paul is in VK5 (South Australia) he did manage Js and ZLs as well as a variety of VKs.
VK9NM (Norfolk Is) was fairly popular but it was slow going for most of the others. Matt was on holiday there and will not be printing special QSL cards.

Sun: Just one rapidly growing sunspot.
 
Well we (Stoke City) lost 4 – 1 to Liverpool. Defensive errors cost us dearly after we went 0-1 up. Still, like 10m we plod on.
Stoke City play Chelsea at the Bridge on Saturday, I have a ticket, it’s about time we beat them at the Bridge.
