February 15, 2016

Firstly let me apologise for not including a report last week from M0HLT, Andy, who said,
“Hi Tony. I've not posted for some time, but just to say,I didn't hear a thing over the weekend with the 10-10 contest .Only 1 beacon from Norway. 5/5 signal for a few minutes on Sunday. Called and called CQ on 28;500 but not a sausage!!”
 
Ah yes I know the feeling.

Most popular DX of the week was TL8TT (Central African Republic) run by an Italian group who got top spot every day of the week. There were a few other sought after ones but not many. Generally a poor week.

Stoke City beat Crystal Palace 1 – 0 in a generally unexciting match. I was there and of course 3 pints is always useful. Nothing this weekend as its FA Cup weekend. 2 weeks on Sunday its Spurs away.
