Many thanks to Jack KF5BD for the following report :-
Hello Mr. Bill  [G4YZE]
Net conditions just as poor as last week.  Poor props and lots of noise. Jack KF5BD,   ABQ
called the warm up session of the ROAR net and checked in one guest,
Jim KC5VGD [very good driver] an 18 wheeler in Oregon .
Bob WB7RQG Called the net for AF1E Joe who was enjoying his sail boat.
Bob then checked in KO7J  Paul,  a 5watt QRP guest station in Nevada. Relay
Jack KF5BD checked in Joe W0TBC in Stillwater, MN and asked him to call
EA7GSU ROAR's International president using CW but no contact.
We did not hear Jim W1QUO this week and some of the other regulars.
Two other stations were heard but not well enough for either Bob or Jack or Joe [W0TBC] to work them.
73,  Jack  KF5BD
