A dull week but things certainly livened up for the contest, the ARRL Ten Metres only SSB and CW. Shame as I had other things that needed doing. I’m still having problems with my logging software. There were 6784 reported contacts on Saturday and a similar amount 6787 on Sunday.
Pick of the bunch PX2A (Brazil special), FY5KE (French Guiana special), FR4KR (Reunion Is special). Of course there was lots more DX about.

Sun: Several sunspots have popped up on the sun but they are not of much consequence.
Right now, gravelly debris from rock comet 3200 Phaethon is burning up in Earth's atmosphere. It's the annual Geminid meteor shower. (spaceweather.com)
Footy: Stoke drew 0 – 0 at home to Middlesbrough. Both teams had chances but squandered them. Coventry away next Saturday and then an Xmas break. This new Covid scare may mess up the New Year fixtures and lots of other things. Covid passports are now needed to get in to watch a match.
