From Cees PA2X
Dear Bill,
Thanks for this Report. Just a minor notification : at December 31th I was QRV from Hagfors in Sweden,
where I was on holiday with my wife and kids. I was able to hear W1QUO, all; Canadians and most of the
UK stations (like G4HMG) with 5/9, but unfortunately not you. After the ROAR -Net I met with SM4CSF,
Nils (Ake) from Falun in Sweden, on 80 meters and we had a very nice half hour chat.

Regards    PA2X - Cees Jan van Mourik (just back in Bussum - Netherlands, hihi)
