Greetings Bill,
Conditions this Sunday morning were much along the usual line. Decent conditions for working ANZO stations, but judged from this QTH we may be starting too early.
As usual, it was difficult to work European stations except stations situated on the outskirts of Europe.

08:10z  EA7GSU, Pertti, 56 increasing to 59. Steady signal for almost a full hour.

EA/G4HMG John had his hospital check up on Monday.
They did not locate a hernia but he must take it easy for some time
and call the hospital directly if he has any recurrence of the severe pain.
