Propagation very poor all day. K=2 A=12 Flux=68
0630z - 0730z Europe - Anzo net on 14,293 Long Path.
Reception poor here. Many thanks to Klaus for the
following report : -
I miss the contact with our ANZO friends and your able
control of the net. Apart from this, I found it a rather
since I was able to work all stations. Here is my
06:45z EA5/G4HMG, John, from new house in Benissa using
mobile station. Mostly 58, some deep QSB. Swimming pool
weather, 24 C.
06:55z G4YZE, Bill. 55 plus/minus, always
readable. Bill had trouble copying others. Yesterday
Bill walked 1½ mile. Congratulations!
07:00z GW4KVJ, John. 59 most of the time. Sunny. Son,
on visit from Canada, had taken some fine photos of the
07:03z G3LUW, Brian, good signal here. Rain, 25 C.
Brian got two new island groups in the IOTA contest.
Score is 500 plus.
07:10z G4JVW, Bill, overcast. Unfortunately Bill
had poor copy on the other station.
John reported that the 1000 miles trip down to Benissa
was done in two days. From the house John is looking
down on David, EA5ALK,
10 km away. John was hampered by music on the frequency
and fears that this may be a permanent pain! Flying
back to UK on Tuesday.
Returning to Benissa on August 24 to receive movers a
couple of days later. Future antenna plans are a W3DZZ
if space available.
