Roar Nets August 13 2006

Apologies for late service.  I was enjoying a Golden Wedding celebration in France last weekend but I see I missed a good opening on 20m. 
0630z - 0730z   Europe - Anzo Net on 14,293 Long Path.
Thanks to Klaus for the following report. : -
Greatings Bill,
Not a big attendance on this Sunday morning, but for once an opening to VK-land.
Agreed with Brian that I should send you this report.
06:24z  VK4ZD/P, Bill. Initially 33, but fairly quickly increasing to 55 and topping at 57. Left us again for a VK contest
06:25z  VK2GWK, Henk. Started at 57 and stayed close to 57 for almost half an hour.
06:42z  G3LUW, Brian, acting net controller. 59, fine signal. A bit too early for the VKs, but Brian managed later.
06:50z  GW4KVJ, John, near Cardiff.  57, good copy. As always very patient with me when I try to assist the net controller.
06:55z  CT/AD6XX, Laszlo. 44 at best, even though I was beaming long path towards VK. Glad to report that Laszlo is steadily improving.
06:56z  EA7GSU, Pertti. 22 and never improving. Brian had to QSP.
07:20z  Net closed
I did not attend the International net. I was not at home at the time.
