0730z - 0800z Anzo Net on 7,105 +/- QRM
Suggest 0600z next week
From Bill VK4ZD
Due to the frequency being busy we moved to 7,115
Peter VK3KCD was 59 and gave me 59 also
Phil VK2MCB was 58-9 and gave me 58-9 also
Maurie VK2MGH (visitor) was 59
Doug ZL1BFS was 58 and gave me 59
Peter advised of contacts into EA at 0630z on the long path on 20m indicating a need to try an earlier time slot for 20m
 
From Phil VK2MCB
Peter VK3KCD was a good signal (58) initially but faded quite rapidly after 15 minutes.
By 30 minutes he was virtually unreadable as I was to him.
 
0800z-0900z Europe - Anzo Net on 14,295.2 Long Path

From Bill VK4ZD
Doug ZL1BFS was 59 and gave me 59+10
Phil VK2MCB was 54
Vernon G0JWE advised by skype from France that he had heard me 59 on the NZ Bay Of Islands SDR
Propagation to Europe appeared to have closed.
 
From Phil VK2MCB
Bill VK4ZD was 43
Jean-Pierre F1CFA was heard faintly at 0800z with a 31 signal but he could not copy me despite a number of calls.
Hopefully with an earlier start we might make contact.
 
From Nick G4HCK
Monitored 20m today. No one appeared so I shut the station down.
I wonder if anyone has heard anything from Pertti (EA7GSU) he has been missing recently.
Hello Pertti, where are you? You are missed.
