Yet another poor week, no reports from anyone and I only
worked a couple of European PSK31 contacts. My excuse, I’ve been busy
with kids and furniture.
And again I’m not going to mention W1AW, top every day.
Maybe 10-10 International summer contest will get more activity going. Tests on my new Moxon monoband beam will start mid August. I’ve yet to put it together!

The European Space Agency's Rosetta spacecraft is now less than 2300 km from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In only 9 days, Rosetta will reach the comet's core and go into orbit around it. Latest images from the probe's navigation camera show a strangely-shaped nucleus that is coming into sharper focus day by day. Follow the action at https://twitter.com/ESA_Rosetta.
