February 5, 2015


EP6T (Kish Is, Iran) was very much sought after all week.

But then so was J6/SP7VC (St Lucia), DR50RRDXA (Germany), 3B9FR (Rodriguez), CU7MD (Azores) and others.



 
Last Wednesday, Joao, PU2LHA worked CA3HSC 59.

Well Joao that is more than I did. It’s not been a good week for me except Stoke City beat QPR. Send in more contacts Joao.

Sun: 5 sunspots with spot AR2277 having a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that holds energy for M-class solar flares.

For the third day in a row, a high-speed stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field. Observers around the Arctic Circle have been seeing bright auroras, and the display could continue.

Stoke beat QPR 3 – 1 with all three goals coming from John Walters, the first “hat trick” by a Stoke player in the Premiership. Next Saturday Newcastle United away. A real tough one as they are one place and 2 points below us.

Jasper, our chocolate Labrador, has had a double cruciate ligament operation. The poor chap is so sorry for himself.
