Dear Bill
Please ignore my previous email and replace it with the following:-
Good Morning Bill
The 40mx ANZO net was well attended this week and started early as Bill VK4ZD answered my test call at 04:45z. I had replaced my antenna feed line with 450 ohm slotted line that morning and the results are satisfactory. As well as Bill and myself Diane VK4KYL, Peter VK3FPSR and Phil VK2MCB joined the net with Rob ZL1RD joining just as we were finishing.

John ZL2JPM was next with a solid 59 both ways.
Jean Pierre F1CFA was good copy in the clear at 53, giving me 55.
Peter VK3KCD was 59 doing well into Europe with his wire beam being fed with new 450 ohm balanced feeder.
Klaus HB9CQS with a consistent solid 59 signal (both ways)

John G3OKT was consistent with his 54 signal, giving me 56
Klaus advised that John G4HMG / P checked in but I couldnt hear him

Jack and Bill,
Let me amend Jack’s report. We had 9 check-ins. As the net was closing we had a check in from W2MSR Jack in Maine. Jack is also a Rotarian. It appears that each week more and more Rotarians are finding us. Always good to hear from new folks.

Dear Bill for your report,

Lots of static but Joe WOTBC with the help of Joe AF1E and others checked in KF5BD Jack, W2LGF Reuben, WB7RQG Bob, WD8QHD Noel, N4EDT Ed, and at the very end EA7GSU Pertti from Spain. Total check ins eight and no visitors this week. WB7RQG was running bare foot with 100 watts but said his new amp that idles along at 1KW would be in the line next week. Reuben is experimenting with antennas.
