Not an extremely dramatic week for DX, quantity or scarcity. At the start of the week there was AO2022XAC (which I worked on 10m!) (Spain), OJ0DX (Market Reef), D4Z (Cape Verde), TM17FFF (France), SX14ASTRO (Greece Astronomer special) and others were all hanging in there but generally activity was down.
I must point out that the inclusion here is what is reported on the band, CW, SSB, (AM/FM?) and Digital. Nothing is forgotten. SWLs can also send stuff
most popular DX (three or more contacts, any mode)

Sun: Two sunspots with a new one just emerging.
Football : Stoke lost their season opener to Millwall 2-0. Couldn’t make it there as there was a rail/tube strike. Day 1 and we are last in the league (on goal difference) and I paid £24 for a ticket which I couldn’t use. Blackpool next week at Stoke, first home game, I’ll be there. We better win, 1 – 0 will do!
The England women’s football team won the European Cup against Germany 2-1 after extra time. They did well.
locust : A catastrophic batting display caused us to lose the 3 rd T20I against South Africa. We didn’t even last 20 overs. How shitty!!
Now you can help Tony compile his ten yard report.
