Quite a good weekend on Ten. There seemed to me to be a lot of stations from Finland on air. But they all add up. YL30WAY (Latvia) was probably the most popular celebrating the Baltic Way. And of course there is a nice certificate to get.
Other DX, OJ0O (Market Reef), AN7AL (Spain), several more ‘30WAY stations.
Click here for more info on the Baltic Way stations.

Sun: Blank again, now for 21 days.
Stoke lost again, to Leeds at home. We now own bottom spot on the Championship table.
We also played Leeds for the second time in 4 days in the League Cup but this time at Leeds. And we won! On penalties, imagine that. We were nil – 2 up when our amazing goalie made the most horrendous mistake. The he took the final and winning penalty.
A most glorious run chase and win in the Ashes Test at Headingly for England. Ben Stokes was the hero scoring 135 not out. Also a hero was Jack Leach who stayed with Stokes for a hour for 1 run. Against a hostile Ausi bowling attack now that is really “holding your end up”
