February 11, 2015








From Wednesday onward K1N topped the list. Cracking callsign and superb location. Here is a link to some of their photos. K1N

And so to the rest of the DX, there was certainly plenty about. E41MT (Palestine), VU2CPL (India), JW9JKA (Svalbard), 9K54NLD (Kuwait), EH5ANT (Spain) and loads more.

I worked a few more Russian stations and the Azores on SSB and PSK.

I didn’t seem to have time to go DX hunting.

Sun: 4 sunspot clusters with the possibility of flares from one.
 
Stoke drew 1 – 1 away at Newcastle, a good result for us.
Today, Wednesday, we play Manchester City at the Brit and I’ll be there which is why this gets to you early.
 
Lastly I must thank Peter, VE3SUN for updating his DXMonitor programme. I use it in conjunction with DXSummit to gather and collate spots for this column. It will do much, much more. The Beta version is available for FREE TRIAL here but read the instructions for the new import from facility. Instructions
