Hi Bill
The net closed at 1305. The stations I heard/worked were
VO1NP K1AKE HB9CQS EA5ALK YO9BC PA3AHC OH1TG WN5V EA7GSU W1QUO
Coco came on after you had departed with a good signal. He was only using 90 watts as his amplifier refused to work. Jim gave him 5 & 9. Pasi and Klaus were not strong here, but got 5 & 9 from Jim.

Re. our stalwart net controller Tommy G2FUU :-
Tommy had major surgery last week. He is making a slow recovery
and is still under heavy sedation, but the doctors are satisfied that he is
making steady progress.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tommy also with Olive and all the family.
