From Nick G4HCK
Good morning Phil
Propagation – bad
Adjacent station interference – bad
Weather bad – pouring with rain
Contacts – the one bright side of the morning – G0EGW was operational and we had a quick QSO. I also thought I heard Malcom PA3AHC but conditions would not allow a contact.
But there was a upside to the morning - my wife brought me a nice bacon roll which I enjoyed !
From Malcolm PA3AHC
I’ll try again to catch FICFA on 40m before the 20m net . ( Tuesday ?)
20m was again dead over here this morning , although I heard some G- voices in the noise .
Got across though briefly to Brian/G3LUW on 80m with 5/5 .
From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
We meet together with Vernon G0EGW on Tuesday morning 7h45 ( 52/52 signals)
G4HCK was also on, but he can't hear me.
They meet together with a 55 / 56 signal.
Hope we can meet on Sunday morning if prop is better.
So soon Jean-Pierre
From Phil VK2MCB
Bill was not on the air last weekend due to illness but is hopefully in recovery mode.
But, I have it on good authority that Di VK4DI did very well in the Oceania DX contest. We wait to hear more.
