0800z - 0900z Europe - Anzo Net on
14,293 Long Path.
Again thanks to Klaus for the
following report : -
More than ever net control was a
joint effort this Sunday
morning/evening with signals coming
but thanks to the patience and good
help of those participating we
managed to have a fine net.
08:08z EA7GSU, Pertti, mostly
54-59. Beam antenna damaged, so
Pertti used the groundplane.
Rain, rain. Apparently not true
that The rain in Spain stays
mainly in the plains.
08:11z OH1TG, Pasi. Signals coming
and going here. Light snow.
08:16z OH6SM, Martti. Working ANZO
short path for a start. Good signal
into ZL-land. No improvement long
08:18z G4YZE, Bill, more R4 than R5
here. Managed to work ZL1RD briefly.
08:21z ZL1RD, Rob, fairly steady
54-55 here. Got 57 from Rob at one
time. Gave Martti 58-59.
08:30z PA0SDZ, Les. Very weak here,
mostly 42. Les got 41 from Rob.
08:37z EA/G4HMG, John. Real yo-yo
signal, 32 - 59. Raining. John
called it typical British weather.
09:00z Last participants closed
Also on the net, but not readable
here: VK3KCD, VK4ZD, M0BDI, G3LUW
and maybe others.

Some more enlightenment from Pertti :
THIS IS NOT A RELIGIOUS OR SPIRITUAL
HELL EXPLAINED BY CHEMISTRY STUDENT
The following is an actual question
a University ofWashington chemistry mid
The answer by one student was so
'profound' that the
professor shared it with colleagues, via
which is, of course, why we now have the
enjoying it as well :
"Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic
(gives off heat) or
endothermic (absorbs heat)? "
Most of the students wrote proofs of
using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it
expands and heats
when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student wrote the following:
"First, we need to know how the mass of
changing in time. So we need to know the
rate at which
souls are moving into Hell and the rate
at which they
are leaving. I think that we can safely
once a soul gets to Hell, it will not
Therefore, no souls are leaving. A s for
souls are entering Hell, let's look at
religions that exist in the world today.
Most of these religions state that if
you are not a
member of their religion, you will go to
there is more than one of these
religions and since
people do not belong to more than one
religion, we can
project that all souls go to Hell. With
death rates as they are, we can expect
the number of
souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look
at the rate of change of the volume in
Boyle's Law states that in order for the
and pressure in Hell to stay the same,
the volume of
Hell has to expand proportionately as
This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate
than the rate
at which souls enter Hell, then the
pressure in Hell will increase until all
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster
increase of souls in Hell, then the
pressure will drop until Hell freezes
So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me
during my Freshman year that, 'It will
be a cold day
in Hell before I sleep with you,' and
account the fact that I slept with her
then number two must be true, and thus I
am sure that
Hell is exothermic and has already
frozen over. The
corollary of this theory is that since
Hell has frozen
over, it follows that it is not
accepting any more
souls and is therefore,
Heaven, thereby proving the existence of
being which explains why, last night,
shouting 'Oh my God.' "
THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.
