The days are getting shorter and we have had some downright chilly evenings, at least for August. I’m loving it. Nature always seems to inspire, especially this time of year in the northern hemisphere.
The Chinese Pistachio’s and Cottonwood’s are showing a little color change, and riding my bike home last night – by the time I got home at 8 PM, it seemed that that was the latest I would ride home without a night light. We will have lost a solid 1 hour 45 minutes of daylight by the end of this month.
It sure would be nice to have some new stations activate 160M, Top Band gave me 5 new one’s last summer, this summer only 1. DX-ing in general has been like watching the grass grow since VK0EK goes new one’s wise, but 40M has offered some great general purpose DX-ing with EU and ZS and AS/OC-Pac. It seems every day I get just a little more away from DXCC as it continues to feel like “been there, done that”.
