Activity weekend - 03 & 04 November

During the first session conditions were very good with minimal libration, unfortunately activity was very low. Activity improved for the second  session, and some new stations appeared too, making it a very successful weekend. Libration was more noticeable but didn't cause any problems.

I thought I had picked up another 3 initials with K9ZZH, DL4DTU and NY2Z, I found out later that DL4DTU is the same as DK0ZAB and NY2Z is the same as W2DRZ.... confusing. This improves my standings to 162 Initials, 31 Countries, 6 Continents, 24 US States, 27 Large Grid Sq, 124 Small Grid Sq.

I also listened for GM4ISM during his sked with OZ4MM but heard nil... maybe next weekend??

Heres the log for the weekend totalling 17 QSOs:
