Roar Nets July 15 2007

Propagation very erratic this day.  K=4 improving to 2.  A=14  Flux =76
0630z - 0730z  Europe - Anzo net on 14,293 Long Path.
Thanks to Klaus HB9CQS for the following report : -
No ANZO stations this Sunday morning, I believe. With a contest going and with deep QSB conditions, it was tough.
I rarely had a station R5 for more than a few seconds. Thanks to those who fought the adverse conditions.
06:15z  My first CQ RI call. I should have enjoyed my Sunday breakfast instead.
06:53z  G4HMG, John. 33 to 55. John and Diana have found a fine house in Spain. Will be QRV from there with a wire antenna.
07:08z  G4JVW, Bill from Barnstaple. 33 to 55. No courtesy from the contesters. One of them started only 500 Hz up.
07:10z  G4YZE, Bill. 33 to 55. It could have been R5 all the time, except for the contest.
07:18z  G8LES, Mike. Outstanding signal peaking 59, but Mike had difficulties copying me due to the heavy QRM
07:23z  CT/EA7GSU Pertti visiting Laszlo's station and Helga and paying homage to Laszlo the late CT/AD6XX. After this, Pertti is off to Finland for summer holidays
07:30z  EA5LJ, Les, from Valencia. Visitor. Wanted to have a word with John.
07:40z  Every one gone, faded out, or drowned in QRM, so I signed off.
