February 22, 2016



I suppose it wasn’t too bad at the weekend for the ARRL CW contest but it was thin Monday to Thursday.

Most popular TL8TT Central African Republic), V26M (Antigua & Barbuda), D4Z (Cape Verde), PJ4(various Curacao), XR2K (Chile) and XX9D (Macau).

A special mention for LU9DCE who managed to be very sought after AND do lots of spotting.
Me, I worked nothing all week and was away in VK for the contest.

It was CW and not my favourite mode anyway.

Stoke City have had a week off warm weather training in Dubai. They play Spurs away on Sunday, and will need to play out of their skins to get any points. Time for Berahino to score a hat trick (3 goals).
