Because of the huge solar flare activity , the highest for this cycle 24 so far I decided to use my spare time saturday, to try again to make it towards downunder last broadcast was 7 november this was when the solarflux was 72 A and K index were also poor but suprising enough, i got a report from NEWZEALAND !! this was never in my thoughts, i was trilling when i got a letter from there.

Unfortenly my big amp have failed , it looks that i can't fix it before saturday so i have to use my small amp this one will putting 150-200 watts into the 3 elements beam
