April 8, 2016


I guess VK0EK (Heard Is) and FT4JA (Juan de Nova Is) were top DX all week but there was some more in there.

Conditions were generally down with even the sensitive data modes (PSK and JT65) not showing much activity and that mainly from PU and LU.
Most popular DX (three or more contacts, any mode)

Sun: Two sunspots and they seem like no problem.
 
We (Stoke City) were 2 – 0 up against Swansea City then after 60 minutes we very casually let them back into the game. It ended 2 – 2. I always say with Stoke 2 is never enough. Liverpool away this Sunday, may be we could do like last season and beat them 6 – 1. I think not!
