Band conditions this evening on 20 m to the US were very good, in fact they were absolutely brilliant. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to sit in front of my radio for hours, but for the hour and a half I did get, I worked quite a few stations and nearly all of them were 59, a lot of them + +.

VA3DN, David over in London Ontario came back with a cracking signal and was quite impressed when I guessed he was originally from the UK, in fact he moved over at the age of 13 in the 50s. We had a great chat so thanks Dave, hope we can do it again very soon.

It was nice to hear John, EA7/G1WUU who called in from Spain with a 59+20 signal. He moved down to Spain from Paignton a few years ago and is a regular on all bands with his booming signal.

10 m opened up down to South Africa this morning and I managed to work a few guys down there before the band shutdown.

The sun was shining all day today, it was a real pleasure to sit outside and bask up those lovely rays. I know that we shouldn't wish our life away but boy I am looking forward to the warmer temperatures, let's hope that our weatherman don't jinx us again, in fact they should just shut up altogether as they never seem to get the weather right. Pretty good at predicting bad weather, but no good at predicting long-term hot spells.
