Or at least that's how it always feels to me with the last bank holiday of the summer done and no more until Christmas!
As I blogged last week, the conditions are changing and there's been noticeably less Es this weekend. I did work EA7DUD on 50MHz in a brief opening yesterday and I noticed some Es around 27MHz from Italy and Scandinavia.
Having had a bad cold/cough most of last week (I was forced to abandon a QSO last Friday owing to a failing voice), I've been on 14MHz JT65A most of the weekend, often remote controlling the PC from the sofa with Pippi the cat on my lap. Some nice QSOs, most notably with LU2XPK in Tierra Del Fuego and also a couple of UA0 stations in furthest Siberia as well as many enjoyable QSOs closer to hand.
