Roar Nets August 21 2011
Propagation poor.  K=1,  A=3,  Flux=101
0530z - 0600z  Anzo Net on 7,118.
Many Thanks to Peter VK3KCD for the following report :-
Good Morning Bill
Present on 40mx this Sunday were Phil VK2MCB (formerly VK2FPDB), Peter VK3FPSR, Doug ZL1BFS and myself. Propagation within VK was consistent but to ZL was highly unstable. Pertti EA7GSU was 5x9 at Doug’s QTH but was no copy on this side of the Tasman Sea. It was great to hear Phil’s new call and we look forward to hearing him on 20mx.
I shall be absent from Flinders for the next 3 weeks and unless I have an opportunity to operate portable will be back on the nets on September 18.

Many Thanks to Treasurer Bob for the following report :-
Hi Bill, Not a bad net today. We had seven checkins with one guest. Not everyone could hear each other.
Net control was Joe, AF1E. The following joined the net;
Jim, W1QUO
Joe, W0TBC
Reuben, W2LGF
Jack, KF5BD relay station
Luke, K3AQ as a guest
and me, WB7RQG
We are still being bothered by the Old Miss Net which are 2 kc's above us.
We are new to the frequency so I need to do a bit more study of where we should go.
73, Bob WB7RQG
                                         That's all for this week,
                                           73 de Bill g4yze
