Good Morning Bill
Good propagation for this week’s net and Reg VK7KK, Bill VK4ZD, Noel VK2IWT and myself enjoyed easy copy of each other marred only by some electrical storm static. Quite a few members of this net have conflicting activities over the next few weeks so attendance may be reduced. Bill VK4ZD has kindly agreed to provide a weekly report for the next 3 weeks when able. That’s it for this week YIR & 73 Peter VK3KCD.

Greetings Bill
The net had been on for more than half an hour when I joined after calling Bill (ZD). Hence I am unable to give you a detailed report on net activities.
I exchanged reports and comments with Bill, VK4ZD, 59 - Doug, ZL1BFS, 57 - Henk, VK2GWK, 58 - Peter, VK3KCD, 58 - Martti, OH6SM, 58, but many other stations were active, including John, EA/G4HMG (I was told with with Pertti visiting) - Brian, G3LUW - Malcolm, PA3AHC - John, G3OKT - Bill, G4YZE and OO7J, Chris, member of one of the Brussels Rotary clubs. There were also a number of visitors and Bill (ZD) worked them all, including DC4FG, IK1BMT and HB9EVJ, Vincent.
The earth quake in Japan and all that followed has shocked us all. I hope that our friend Terusan, JM2HBO, and his family are well.

Hi Bill,    We had to move the net to 14.287.0.  Net control was Joe, W0TBC. 
Checkins included Jack, KF5BD  Reuben, W2LGF Joe, AF1E  and myself, WB7RQG. 
Too much QRM so could not hear Pertti.

Hello Bill,
                We,"in the Colonies", are changing to Daylight-Saving Time this Sunday ( March 13 ). 
 I assume you, in the U.K., will move at some later date. 
We will not change our net start time until U.K. goes on summer time.
                                   Kindest regards and 73 Jim W1QUO
(Many thanks Jim,  The "Mother Country" - and Western Europe - go to Summer Time on Sunday March 27.)
                                                That's all for this week,
                                                     73 de Bill g4yze
