February 25, 2016

Not a bad week at all. Five or more contacts were needed to get into the list and with the contest at the weekend it was buzzing.
7P8C (Lesotho) was popular again along with 3XY1T (Guinea). But here was lots more.

I worked nil, but I did help VK4UH with a knotty computer problem and his IC9100.

Tony G4CJC (L) and Kevin VK4UH
On the other hand Faustino, PY2VOA managed LU3DXG 5/9 on Sunday, ZV8B 5/9, LU5DTF/D 5/9 and ZV8B 5/9 on Saturday.

Sun: Today, NOAA forecasters say there is a scant 5% chance of M-class solar flares. That might be an overestimate. There are only two small spots on the sun, and neither has the type of unstable magnetic field harbours energy for strong explosions. (spaceweather.com)
 
No Premiership footy this week, it’s an FA Cup weekend and Stoke City are not involved.
