Nothing heard today
From Nicholas G4HCK
I have been looking for the net but I think events have been against me. Today there was a carrier that kept coming and going and the station which seems to have adopted an adjacent frequency was spreading over 14.295.2. So I had little chance of getting in contact with anyone. In fact when I look at the waterfall on the rig there does not appear to be much activity on the band as a whole but it is still early in the UK. Come to that there is little activity coming from the operator (me) as I have only just woken up.
I have heard/read reports that we are in the bottom of the sun spot cycle and there is the odd sign of an improvement in the bands – can it get any worse I ask myself. Anyway lets hope Sunday is better.
Regards, Nicholas Wilkinson

Again and again !!!
News from Europe !!!!!!!
Tuesday, 7105 was occupied by a powerful Czech station.
And the 20 m band was blank...except on 14,292 MHz !!! HIRS !
