** Personal First

I beam towards Denkark and southern Sweden and all I receive is Italy! Oh well.

Very disappointing this morning as hardly any MS activity was detected, plus I ran out of hard drive space again and only got three hours recorded. A bit of file shuffling has now more than doubled my available space up to 850 GB so hopefully more results tomorrow. I will be beaming south-west this time in case the forecast tropo materialises.

Good DX!
