January 21, 2016



A really awful week with even the weekend not much of an improvement.

Yes there were some DX stations about but they were struggling for contacts. ZY2QG (Brazil Queimada Grande, Snake Island), VP8IDX/MM (Falklands), C5YK (Gambia), K5P (Palmyra Is), 8P5A (Barbados) to mention just a few.
I have not heard a sausage all week (a colloquial UK idiom). I have listened and I have called CQ on phone and PSK31 but no joy.

Sun: Just 4 sunspots with none looking as though they will flare.
 
Stoke drew 0 – 0 with Arsenal in what was actually a very entertaining match and free of yellow cards or nasty incidents, unusual for this fixture. We (Stoke City) are now 7th in the Premier League.
Leicester away this Saturday, that will be a toughie, they are equal top with Arsenal.
