Good Morning Bill
Good propagation but annoying QRN on 40mx this week but eventually signals good enough to overcome the difficulties. On board were Phil VK2MCB, Noel VK2IWT, Peter VK3FPSR, Bill VK4ZD and myself. Noel has indicated he will be absent from the nets next week.

Hi Bill, Very small net today, only three checkins;
Jim, W1QUO Pertti, EA7GSU and myself WB7RQG
I was net control and we operated on 14. 287.0 mHz at 2000Z.
I could not hear Pertti at all.
73, Bob WB7RQG
And to Jim W1QUO for the following report :-
Hello Bill,
Bob(WB7RQG), acting net control. Moved net from 14.288 to 14.287 to reduce QRM. W1QUO reported Bob(WB7RQG) S8 and relayed Pertti(EA7GSU) S8 into net. No one else heard at this time.
73 Jim W1QUO
P.S. (From Jim)  Just talked with Jack Page(KF5BD) who is slowly getting better.
He is wearing a back brace and will see his doctor this Thursday.
                                                   That's all for this week,
