Propagation poor.  K=3,  A=5,  Flux=86.
0530z - 0600z  Anzo Net on 7,118.
Many Thanks to Peter VK3KCD for the following report :-
Good Morning Bill
Good conditions on 40 mx this Sunday Bill VK4ZD having good copy on all present. I had Q5 copy on everyone but Doug ZL1BFS was a bit marginal at first. Present were Phil VK2FPDB, Peter VK3FPSR, Bill VK4ZD, Doug ZL1BFS and myself. Phil VK2FPDB has been inducted as President of the Rotary Club of Canberra and Bill VK4ZD as President of the Rotary Club of Gatton-Lockyer. We wish them a successful Rotary year. Phil continues to recover well and is studying for his licence upgrade. I have just received a note from Doug ZL1BFS indicating he will be absent from the nets for the next 2 weeks.

0600z - 0700z  Europe - Anzo Net on 14,293 Long Path.
I listened from 0600z, Heard Peter very faint 2/1 until 0630z. Coco briefly at 0620z
and finally got Pertti about 3/3 at 0658z.
Many Thanks to Peter VK3KCD for this report also  :-
Bill VK4ZD and I listened on 14293 from 0600 to 0630z. We had 5x9 signals both ways. Bill heard nothing from Europe except a 1x0 signal presumably from Coco YO9BC . I heard Brian G3LUW and Coco YO9BC at about 0620z at 3x2 and another signal ?Pertti EA7GSU at about 2x1. By 0630z all signals had disappeared so Bill and I closed. I have been working both East and West European stations at 0500 to 0530z from Flinders over the past couple of weeks. I was disappointed not to have heard Klaus HB9CQS last week!. YIR and 73 Peter VK3KCD
