"TEXEL" island location had to be cancelled due to stormy weather.
We made it ourself easy and stayed closer to home in a more sheltered place.
Stormy wind calmed down Friday afternoon so we could setup the antennas easy.

Propagation was still good on 28MHz worldwide except the Pacific and Alaska.
This could be the last good propagation ARRL10M for a long time this solar cycle?


Band closed sudden at about 1700 local Saturday.
Sunday was better 1 hour more propagation until about 1800 local   better USA opening including West coast
NW-USA KL7 was the difficult path.
