The last couple of days have seen dry crisp sunny days here in the UK due to high pressure sitting over Europe so I decided early on to get out in the garden here and get some outside work done – I had intended to “slip in” some antenna work by erecting a 20m homebrew antenna but it did not work out that way.
So today we had a spell of Wspr on 20m – the conditions were good, the solar flux was up to 127 – it was slow to get going but soon we were being reported in some DX locations, conditions were good.
Dx for today on 20m was surprising – my 5w was being reported by:
Plus a good few others – I was very surprised to see such a good opening today on 20m – conditions seem to be improving nicely, lets hope this trend continues – I had been considering removing this End Fed – I might rig up the vertical as a temporary antenna for 20m just to see how it goes – Looking good!
Awaiting delivery of new “Netbook”, watch this space.
Have good weekend.
