BLETCHLEY PARK MANSION

Home of the World’s greatest codebreaking initiative and first electronic computer

Where great British minds solved ENIGMA machine encryption and undoubtedly shortened WWII

[The way was led by four Polish minds that had tackled ENIGMA and handed their results to Britain at the outbreak of hostilities]

Welcome to Issue 29

Welcome all to Issue 29, again our heartfelt thanks to all our contributors for their ongoing efforts.

We are now well into the holiday season so this, and Issue 30, will reflect some of our contributors experiences from locations more exotic than usual. (Will the logs be equally exotic, Ed)

It was this time last year, in Issue 23, that we gave an example of “good practice logging” in the Beginners Corner feature and I’m more than pleased to say that the current standard of logs received by E2k are about the best in the business.

Monitors have reported major disruption, fadeout/high noise, as a result of a CME in Mid May, this was not one bit surprising as Boulder / IPS / Tesla all sent out “flashes” on May 15th.

Boulder classified it as a G-5 “extreme”, and it registered 9 on the K-Index, while IPS classed it as “severe” and Tesla as “VERY HIGH”

The ongoing effects lasted much longer than usual and it was followed by a further series of events up to 12th June affecting reception in some very peculiar ways as highlighted by our incoming logs.

(I have monitored our “space weather” daily for almost 10 years and cannot remember, off the top of my head, such extreme and long lasting activity. Ed.)

XP New freqs in June, see entry

Following a clarification request on M01 please alter the entries in your Control Lists to read :-

Fritz Nusser has kindly provided us with this historical overview of M41 to compliment its reactivation.
