Bed time DX

I always try to check out the band propagation before I hit the sack and tonight was worthwhile. As I sipped my coffee I worked a couple of great stations - C31RH & WB2REM. I caught C31RH nice and loud down on 40m with my Hustler 6BTV and I then tuned up to 20m and worked Jim WB2REM 5/9 both ways using the FT1000 & 150W into the Cushcraft MA5B.
Well thats all for now,  I'm off to bed, got work in the morning. Thanks to all for following my radio antics, I plan to be more active late evenings starting tomorrow and will make more of an effort to share my shack activity. 73 happy ham'in'_._ 😎

Sporadic E on the 10 meter band.

It's been a while since I lasted posted which has been mainly due to good wx and lots of outside tinkering. I have been busy building up an old school Kawasaki motorcycle as well as hanging out with the kids.

At the moment I'm playing radio up at the holiday shack up on the Yorkshire moor tops. I have the trusty old YAESU FT-767GX fired up into a hustler 6btv and I'm catching some eu stations up on 10 meters (28 mhz).
Sporadic e season is here which means the ionised layers and magnetic fields are capable of providing some interesting radio activity on the higher HF bands. I'll be back down at home shortly so I best make the most of the time I have here but before I go, here is a new member of the DX crew.
She is called Fizz. I think Finn approves.
