Greetings Bill,

Medium to good conditions with the strong heterodyne signal on 14293 still a pain. 

07:23z  OH6SM, Martti, 57 / 57. Minus 13C during the night. Martti had to leave early.

07:40z  JF1GYX, Hidesan called in as guest. 56 here, got 55 from QTH north of Tokyo.

07:58z  VK4ZD, Bill from Lockyer Waters. 33 and never above 56. Got 54. Rain, rain and more rain. 

07;59z  ZL1BFS, Doug. Mostly 56. Got 57. 24C during the day and 13C at night. Sounds ideal.

08:01z  VK2GWK, Henk. 56 here. Got 54 - 55. Henk worked Bill in Bolton before having to go QRT.

08:23z  G4YZE, Bill, from wintry Bolton. Minus 3.5C at night. 55 here. Bill worked the VKs  and ZL.

08:30z  DJ3ST, Josef near Karlsruhe as guest. Minus 5C. 57 here. Got 55. Karlsruhe is normally skipped out for me.
            Must have been back scatter.

08:38z  Net closed.

John and Diana celebrated their wedding anniversary on this Sunday (Congratulations!) and Pertti attended the event, so it ended up being a fairly small net.

I missed this one.  Many thanks to Brian G3LUW for the following report :-
There were only four stations on the evening net this evening. Don G0JWE, Tommy G2FUU and myself in the UK and John EA/G4HMG from Spain. John and Diana have been celebrating their Golden Wedding. They have had several guests staying with them including Pertti EA7GSU who also came on the mic.
Very noisy conditions but we passed congratulations to John and Diana, and also to Tommy, who will be enjoying a birthday this week.

1800z - 1830z  N.Am. Transcontinental Net on 14,288
Many thanks to Jack KF5BD for the following report :-
We had a good net today.  Bob WB7RQG was net control. Other participants were Jim W1QUO,  Jack KF5BD,  Joe W0TBC,  and Joe AF1E.  Jim reported on the early morning net. Joe W0TBC said something about 5 degrees above zero. The Ole Miss net was on 14.290 but did not bother me. They must have had their Amps tuned up well not to bleed over as usual on most of us. And to Bill G4YZE be my guest and if Bob forgets to send you his report please use this account .We called Pertti but no answer. I called Dr. Andy also thinking he may have his new antenna up and needed some signal reports but no contact.
