John G4HMG reported that Laszlo is improving though still rather weak and
having to attend hospital daily for dressing-changes. Not yet fit enough  for  radio.
Keep taking the Portuguese Sunshine Laszlo. We look forward to hearing from you !
Les PA0SDZ is on holiday next week. He may get in touch from his home in France.
Pertti's new house is nearly complete. Windows and doors in progress. Electrics delayed.
He is going to Finland on Tuesday for 3 weeks. Returning July 18.
Klaus had been to Fredreichshaven rally. "Flea market getting bigger. people getting older !"
His report follows - as he hears Europe  much better than I do.
Greetings Bill,
Not much A-NZ-O this morning, but a good European net. I am sure you have all the details,
Bill, but here is an extract of my log anyhow.
06:06z  Started calling CQ RI net beaming long path. No answers. Gave up after five minutes
and joined Karen for breakfast.
06:42z  G4YZE, Bill. Fine signal here, 59+/59, fairly steady.
06:45z  G4HMG, John, also 59+/59. Had good news about Laszlo's progress. John and Diane 
will be motorhoming down to Cornwall.
06:50z  G3LUW, Brian, 59+/59. Fine signal.
06:56z  PA0SDZ, Les. 59+/59. Too close for some UK's, but Brian sufficiently far away.
Going to house in France. Doubtful if QRV there.
07:00z  G0PCF, Bruce. 59+20 here. Unfortunately, Bruce was unable to copy other UKs and
PA, so brief visit only. 73 to everyone.
07:18z  EA7GSU, Pertti. With my beam towards EA mostly 57 here. Going to OH-land now. 
Back in EA after July 18.
07:25z  G4JVW, Bill, Barnstaple, 55-58 here. Fine signal.
07:47z  Net closed. Signals getting slightly weaker as net progressed, but fine copy until the end.
