0730z - 0830z  Europe - Anzo net on 14,293 Long Path.
Many thanks to Klaus HB9CQS for the following report :-
Greetings Bill,

A small net, - sometimes under difficult conditions. The heterodyne signal on 14293 is troublesome and there was occasional heavy QRM from phone and CW stations. The CQ Worldwide DX Contest on CW was on. Perhaps that caused some CW stations to QSY to the phone section.

07:07z  VK4ZD, Bill, 59 - 44 - 57 over next 1½ hour. Surprise: 2nd operator was Malcolm, PA3AHC.

07:33z  YO9BC, Coco. 59+10. Never below 59. Got 59+40 at one time. Coco also worked Bill (ZD).

07:54z  EA/G4HMG, John. 34, quickly increasing to 59. This morning John was unable to work VK.

08:15z  G4YZE, Bill. 33, later briefly 59 before dipping again. Bill also worked Bill (ZD) / Malcolm.

08:42z  Net closed

Peter, VK3KCD, was operating mobile, but I was unable to copy. Peter later called Bill (ZD) on Skype and we exchanged a few words in this way. Peter had heard me on his mobile rig.

Short path to Bill (ZD) was tried but did not work. For one thing, I am hampered by the mountains.

John excused himself for next Sunday where he and Diana will be celebrating their Golden Wedding. Pertti has an equally good excuse. We were told that he will attend the event.

Hi Bill:
Small group this day but conditions were much better. The ole Miss group was using 14.290 and was a nuisance at times. Check ins were:  W1QUO Jim,  W0TBC Joe,  AF1E Joe and KF5BD Jack net control today. Welcome back Jim who was operating from his homestead QTH with a big signal.
