Winter is coming

Winter is coming. They expect night temperatures of minus 7 Celsius at night. And Saturday, it will snow for the first time this winter season. Different sources say that it will be an extremely harsh winter. A Polish source said that it will be the worst winter in a thousand years. I hope not. For the children it is nice to be riding on the sled. And I can still remember the last winter. Oh boy, I think I should go emigrate to a warmer country. Read more about it #1 #2

This morning I worked HGØWFF on 20 meter with CW. Also ZA/HA1ZN from Albania. I liked that, because Albania is very rare on the amateur bands. On 40 meter I worked DL7UAB with BPSK31.

On 20 meter I worked YU7BPQ with CW and on 80 meter tonight 2EØVDS and DJ1IJ with BPSK31.

  1. Hoi Paul, het sneeuwde hier vanmorgen rond 9 uur al. Van mij mag de kou eerst nog wel wegblijven. Daarbij komt nog dat als er veel sneeuw valt ik elke dag op het dak kan gaan sneeuw scheppen, we hebben nl. wat lekproblemen in de krimp van het dak alleen bij smeltende sneeuw. Het water loopt dan gewoon onder de dakpannen door. Misschien dat ik er een zeil in leg of zo. Brrrrrr. heb er helemaal geen zin in. We zullen zien hoe het loopt. In 1979 zaten wij helemaal ingesneeuwd, zo erg dat zelfs de ramen dicht gesneeuwd zaten. Voor en achter het huis sneeuwbulten van 8 tot 10m hoog, voordeur zat dichtgevroren. Ik was toen 10 jaar, maar kan het me nog goed herinneren. Dat was het enige jaar dat wij op de sloot naast het huis konden schaatsen, ik kan me nog herinneren dat m'n moeder me riep voor het avond eten en dat het toen -15 graden was...barre tijden...

  2. Morning Paul:

    Yes the forecast is not too good, it is coming from the north Scandinavia, I think it might only affect the north-east of UK we are usually lucky being on the south coast here.

  3. Hi Peter, yes, you are lucky with the weather conditions in the south of England. But last winter was also snow in the south? We'll wait and see what happens the coming weeks. The kids want to skate. They like it, I don't because of slippery roads. 73 Paul

  5. Hi Mike, good morning. I see you facing the same weather conditions over there. In Scandinavia and East Europe winter is already taking place. It will come our way. We'll wait and see. 73 Paul
