Roar Nets June 19 2011
Propagation poor.  K=0,  A=6,  Flux=99
0530z - 0600z  Anzo Net on 7,118.
Many Thanks to Peter VK3KCD for the following report :-
Good Morning Bill
Once again good 40mx propagation with Doug ZL1BFS, Reg VK7KK, Bill VK4ZD, Peter VK3FPSR, Phil VK2FPDB and myself. Signal reports exchanged were all around 5x9 by the end of the net and possibly the first time we could all copy each other with ease. Phil s recovering well from his surgery and as well as the physical exercise required by his rehab program he is studying for his licence upgrade hence exercising is brain as well! While old sol treated us well on 40, 20mx was not so kind as will be seen in the report below.
Until next week YIR and73 Peter VK3KCD.
