Conditions on ten metres were much improved this past week especially on Sunday. Somehow I missed a lot of it. There has of course been a lots of other “stuff” going on in the world. Now the UK is in so called “lock down” and the weather is good I’m out sealing roofs and repairing garage walls. Radio is much easier to play at when the weather is bad.
Pick of the week are TO7DL (Reunion), PJ4DX (Bonaire), CE7VPQ (Chile), ZD7FT (St Helena), FR4NT (Reunion), TT8SN (Chad) and 5T5PA (Mauritania) again.
