"These cowards have no morals. They have no shame about lying"
From Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, the past Iraqi Minister of Information, who had never seen or heard of the Hutton Report or this new promised ‘Intelligence’ fiasco Inquiry on Great Britain entering the Iraqi War. [Doesn’t look at the politics Mr Bliar]!

Welcome all to Issue 21, we’re almost back on track again after the the mishap with Mikes’ HDD that caused the loss of the complete CW section for Issue 20, amongst many other things, and he offers his heartfelt thanks to those who “stepped into the breach”, at very short notice, to provide at least some very useful input. Further thanks to those who also resent their December CW logs, and some of that info is now included in this issue to preserve continuity.

Whatever caused the HD failure certainly had a knock-on effect as subsequently over a period of weeks further items failed including :- 19in Monitor, Modem, DVD, CD-RW, an expensive episode to say the least.

Investigation with the Electricity Supply Company revealed that there had been a number of unexplained “happenings, possibly of solar origination” (in their words) on the 11Kv feed line into his local area and that they had received dozens of complaints, but not accepted any responsibility [some small measure of comfort there].

Mikes’ ENIGMA 2000 info is now kept separately on 2 systems each protected by commercial quality Smart UPS’s - we keep our fingers crossed !!

Now let’s get on with the Newsletter

Following the severe solar disturbances during the latter months of 2003 this year has started off with some very good conditions, as reflected in the logs, and some remarkable openings have appeared from the UK. Mike, whos’ other radio interest is HF aircraft monitoring, logged both voice and HFDL from afar as Australia and Easten US on the upper HF freqs, but no Number Stations above 20 megs.

E07, Gert has noticed some “anomalies” so we are keeping an eye on them to evaluate whether an additional ID needs to be issued
