Some DX about but not much.

DQ0YOTA (German Youth On The Air), SV8/F4GQA (Thassos Is), ZZ56A (Brazil) to name but three.
I’ve now turned the 1C7600 on but haven’t had the time to listen. I’ve been battling with a failed W10 upgrade from W8.1 with no backup media.

A tough one but I’m nearly there.

Sun: Only 3 sunspots. Solar activity is very low. With no sunspots actively flaring, the sun's X-ray output is flat-lining.
Stoke fought back from 2 nil down with 10 minutes to go at Spurs to get a 2 – 2 draw. Norwich away the weekend.
And the 5 th and final Ashes Test starts Thursday with the series already won by England. I hope the Aussies put up a good fight, I have tickets for the last day.
