This week’s most popular station was undoubtedly HD8R in the Galapagos Is. Others worth an honourable mention are 7P8RU (Lesotho), TL7M (Central African Republic), C5C (Gambia), VK2BY (Australia) with more further down the list. LU9DCE did a lot of spotting, again. So did LU4DRH
Andy M0HLT sent this report in.
Saturday SSB, worked: UA0,UA9,PJ2,W1,W2,W3,W4, CV9 and heard: W5,CX,CE,LU,ZS. "Hi Tony, I've not posted for a while, but well, OK it CQWWSSB of course, but 10 was jumping on Saturday! So much DX about ,across 10 and 15. I haven't heard 10 this good in years! OK ,solar cycle etc, although the flux was around 110 and K was good. I was moving QTH and 100 miles East a year ago, from IO70 to IO80 square, so missed out , also a TOTALLY different QTH ,so well pleased with what I worked! Happy days are here again!”
Yes a crazy week or more. CQWWSSB was huge, take a look at my last report. This week has been pretty good.

Sun: Three widely spread out sunspots. Good or bad?
A minor stream of solar wind is approaching Earth, and it could cause polar geomagnetic unrest when it arrives. The gaseous material is flowing from an equatorial hole in the sun's atmosphere. Auroras could appear around the Arctic Circle as the planetary K-index reaches a value of 3 or 4.
Stoke beat Blackpool 0 – 1 away but had 5 players yellow carded. We also beat Luton 0 – 1 and had 5 more players given a yellow card. We are back up to 5th place. But we could be getting a ban for some players if they are not more careful.
Now you can help Tony to compile his ten-metre report.
