Good Morning Bill
The ANZO 0600z net on 7118 KHz commenced early and finished at 0630z. Present on the net were Bill VK4ZD, Noel VK2IWT and Peter VK3FPSR and myself. Peter advised he will be absent from the net next week.
I shall also be absent from the nets for the next 2 weeks but hoping to meet Malcolm PA3AHC in early December.

0730z - 0830z Europe - Anzo Net on 14,293 Long Path
The re-timing to 07:30z - 08:30z seems to be a good compromise. Still, I will probably continue to work the early birds - if any. There were a few on this Sunday. All in all a fine net.
07:14z VK4ZD, Bill. 58, gradually fading to 43, only to increase again to 56 before Bill went QRT at 08:30z.
07:23z JM2HBO, Terusan. 57 here. Got 59 from Nagoya.
07:30z ZL1BFS, Doug. 56. Got 57. Doug got 55 from Terusan. Not easy with the different beam directions.
07:30z VK3KCD, Peter. 59 both ways for a start. Beautiful weather. At 08:08z Peter was down to 33.
07:36z VK3DQ, John, a guest. Poor copy here but Terusan had a good contact.
07:42z OH6SM, Martti called briefly. Good signal. By a blunder Martti was kept out for too long. Sorry!!
07:43z EA7GSU, Pertti with a 59+20.signal and rarely below the 9 mark.
08:00z VK2GWK, Henk. 55 - 58 here. Got 57.
08:04z G4YZE, Bill. Generally 45 both ways.
08:11z EA/G4HMG, John. 32 here and no contact.

Noel, VK2IWT, was on the net, but not heard here.
Bill (ZD) is making preparations at Lockyer Waters for erecting a tilt-over mast with four guy wires. The mast will support an interlaced beam for 10, 12, 15 and 17 M.
Pertti will be absent next Sunday.
