May 22, 2014

Yes, sad to say the band was not in the greatest condition this past week. The weekend was OK so was Wednesday but nothing special.
Certainly there has not been much to work since I got back off my holiday. Those who could worked W1AW, yet again, 7Q7VW (Malawi), PJ2/PF4T (Curacao ), CE2/CX1EK (Chile) and YY1YLY (Venezuela). Better luck next week.
Friday Arie, 9W2VVH, worked IK2NJX, IZ2BVP, IU7AFF, 9A7JCY & EA3GXD. “By the way...I just got my QRP rig X1M on May 7. Then with 3 ele mono yagi at about 10m, I managed my 1st contact with F4HEC 53/57. Photo of QRP rig X1M Click

Sun: 8 sunspots but looking as though they will flare.
On May 24th, the heavens could put on a display. Forecasters say Earth will cross a stream of debris from Comet 209P/LINEAR, and the encounter could trigger a bright new meteor shower. The ironic thing is, the comet itself is really faint.
 
Middlesex lost 2 back to back T20 matches and are not doing too well in that competition (well it’s not real cricket is it?) However in the (genuine cricket) county championship we recently beat Northants by an innings and 84 runs. That’s good, for those who don’t understand cricket.
