Roar Nets October 16 2011
Propagation  good.   K=2,  A=7, Flux=151.
0545z - 0630z  Anzo Net on 7,118.
Many Thanks to Peter VK3KCD for the following report _;
Good Morning Bill
A good net on 40mx this Sunday with Phil VK2MCB, Noel VK2IWT, Bill VK4ZD and myself. All had Q5 copy and topics discussed included recent Rotary activities and Canberra Public Holidays. Bill VK4ZD was active during the JOTA weekend under Bill and Diane’s special event and contest call VK4HH. They had a group of scouts guides camping at their Lockyer Waters QTH and Bill reported it was most successful. We noted that the time difference between VK and G meant that opportunities for scout to scout contacts on 20mx did not eventuate.
