Normally I use a wet string antenna but on Sunday it was a snowy string as the first snowfalls of winter came to the west of England. Saturday conditions were generally dire up to 16:00. Only 20 QSOs from the point the band opened around 08:00. Then at 16:01 it was like a gate was opened and Europe were finally there. I worked 4 times as many in the next two hours as the whole period up to 16:00. So it was much more fun until the last of the day's 110 QSOs at 19:23. On Sunday the band opened later with the first QSO at 09:25 but then it was a more distributed run of 123 QSOs through the day with just a couple of hours with no contacts. Last QSO later at 19:51. The propagation was very Europe oriented and there were only three QSOs outside Europe, namely Uruguay, Brazil and Namibia. I guess this is par for the course at this stage of the sunspots. ICOM IC-756ProIII, Expert 1K-FA and a snow covered fixed wire dipole at 4m. Thanks for all the QSOs and see you all in the next one.
