GW3YDX coming in a good 579 calling CQ FOC
took a liberty as I am not FOC and it after all it was real DX for me got 559
first good sigs since 25 Jan here (CQWW160 only hrd 4 station & wkd 3  !!)
4X4NJ was 569 with QSB agn calling CQ FOC  got a qrz but nowt else 
HB4AGC again 559 calling CQ FOC but not listening for weak DX sigs

In summary - sudden rise in A index again (as it did on 25 Jan) gave good
conditions in this part of the world where DX is rarely hrd !!
