Doug ZL1BFS and I exchanged 59+5 reports
John ZL2JPM was 57-8 and gave 56
Vernon G0EGW was 57
 
From Nicholas G4HCK
I did not get to the radio until just after 08.00 this morning and the band did not sound very happy, in fact it was dead (Christmas humbug approach today). Sunday was good - talked to Phil on Peanut and Doug and Vernon on 20m so communications are still there.

From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
Thanks a lot for your reports. It's always a pleasure.
Today, it was again difficult to work the net meeting. Moreover some OM (out of the roar) are very disturbing. I tried also to join the British group on 3694 MHz, but a french station was discussing along 2 KHz lower using a very high power...
Best wishes, Jean-Pierre F1CFA
