The month, so far. Updates and additions along the way.

Nothing logged on the Asiatic mini-Beverage at my girlfriend's farm so far due to severe flooding which has destroyed the directivity. I've been hearing more at home, but Asiatic conditions are now well down. They usually peak around September - early November.

A new mini-Beverage to the north-west at 330 degrees has been added at my YL's QTH! As there has been precious little time to experiment with this due to Christmas stuff getting in the way. Rear nulling was poor to non-existent with the makeshift earth I had bodged. I improved this with a piece of scrap aluminium on the 27th which gave some improvement and this probably enabled me to dig out 1380 KLIZ. I invested in a simple electrician's copper earth rod from B&Q (Only £5.25!) and hope to be experimenting with this over the next few days. The north-American beverage encounters considerably less flooding. The 'Asiatic field' is currently 80% under water and 12 inches (30 cm) deep in places.

Good DX!
