Greetings Bill,
Much noise and some contest QRM, but it was a rather lively net on this Sunday
with good openings for the lucky ones.

Heard other ANZO stations but not readable.

Many thanks to Jack KF5BD for the following report :-
Hello Bill:  Propagation very poor in the States today. Joe W0TBC was net control for Bob WB7RQG.  Joe AF1E checked in and brought in Richard TI7/AA2UP Costa Rica Central America  commented he was working on the Communicator. James who resigned  as editor told me via a mail that he was sending all his file to Richard. That pleased me for I had sent James several documents including an obit with picture for the late John Ferguson W0QWS . We had 5 check ins total.
