Summertime has arrived here in the UK, well, we've had two days of warm sunny weather which equates to a good summer, I expect it will be all downhill from now. So, I was making the best of the good weather while it lasts so no radio during the day-to-day.

Worked a couple of US stations on 10 m and then that is all died down. 17 m was reasonably good, most of the signals coming from the US were fairly weak. My old mate Steve, M0BKL joined me as he often does. Unfortunately he just uses his little CB antenna which means he can only hear a very strong stations. However, he did manage to work a few of the US stations, and also 8P6HL over in Barbados he was mobile.

I must congratulate N1GKX for his exceptionally strong signal today on 17 m, completely wiping out M0BKL who is only 5 miles away. Oh well, he's got used to being second best to me on the airwaves :-) I'm going to show him how to catch carp on Sunday ;)

10 m opened up for a short time today, I worked my first ever VK on 10 m, VK5MRD, David, he was giving me a fairly good signal. There were a couple of quite strong stations coming in from Cyprus but I then worked a station in Sudan, ST2BSS. Basically that was all I did and 10 m today apart from having a chat with my mate Steve, M0BKL.
