From Bill VK4ZD
Nothing heard again today.
 
From Nick G4HCK
I only heard Malcolm PA3AHC today - the path was very poor - we exchanged signal reports of around 3.4 each way.
Still there is always next week.

 
From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
I was ill on Sunday morning and, sorry for that, not able to drive the net !!!:-)
This Thursday morning, I meet :
G0EGW : 59 backwards !!
G3LUW : 57 backwards
PA3AHC : 42 backwards
We had a storm surrounding and a powerfull Italian station 2 KHz higher.
Always the same guy !!!
It seems that the situation is improving, as we suspected the voice of VK4ZD.
Cheers / 73 in rotary service
