As if to copy Stoke City this week, Ten Metres has been poor, very poor. The odd bit of DX but really a good showing by F4CXO as top spotter.
His shack looks particularly tidy and organised for a Radio Ham!

Sun: Just one teeny spot still from the old cycle.
A dismal showing by England in the first ashes test. A second innings collapse without style or grace. I have tickets for the next match at Lord’s.
Stoke lost their first match at home 1 – 2 to QPR. A goalkeeper mistake and a defence that stood still while an attacker went through them like a knife through butter. Poor, very poor.
Charlton away this Saturday, I’ll be there.
