Unfortunately there was a partial data loss on Monday, complete data loss on Tuesday and again a partial loss on Wednesday. Rather than display incomplete or incorrect data this week’s list start at Thursday. My apologies for this.
Despite the above problem the rest of the week was bouncing. Top DX of the restricted data set was probably VK9DX (Norfolk Is), FY5KE (French Guiana), Z22O (Zimbabwe) and TU5PCT (Ivory Coast) but there really was a tremendous amount more.
I worked VU2 (India) and VK2 (Australia) and quite a few more on Ten Metres. I also worked loads on 40m FT4 including BH9 in China.
Lots of things to do this week, We now both have visas to visit Australia as soon as conditions over there will permit us to do so.

Sun: An archipelago of sunspots is growing between the primary cores of AR2941 cluster. The magnetic island chain stretches nearly 200,000 km with more than a dozen moon-sized spots turning toward Earth. Altogether they have an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbours energy for M-class solar flares. Any eruptions today will be Earth-directed. Here is a good video. Click here Nasa.

Stoke City beat Wigan in the FA Cup 2 – 0 last Saturday and beat Swansea 3 – 0 in the championship last Tuesday. We move up a couple of places. What we need is for all the other teams to lose all the time! Forest next Saturday away, a genuine 6 pointer. They are 1 point above us
