Good Morning Bill
Sorry to hear of the arthritis etc and understand the effect on concentration.
The next ZL 80mx net will be on Tuesday July 3 at 0800z on 3893 KHz.
Below is my report for the June 17, 40mx net
Good propagation with an early brief check in from John ZL2JPM. Also on frequency were Phil VK2MCB, Peter VK3FPSR, Bill VK4ZD, a guest Brad VK1FRSC in Batemans Bay and myself. Preparations for the Canberra conference and ROAR ANZO AGM were discussed. I have received a report from John ZL2JPM on the 80mx activity and they are to conduct a recruitment campaign to increase ZL membership.

Hello Mr. Bill,
Father's Day and poor propagation if one is trying to call a net that covers three time zones in the States and Genalguacil, Spain . Bob WB7RQG Roar treasurer is back from his trip to the East coast and was net control today. Joe AF1E checked EA7GSU Pertti in the net and they had a good CW contact. Others who checked in were N4EDT Ed, WN5V Dave, W0TBC Joe, KA5IYH Will, and KF5BD Jack .
73, Jack KF5BD

Thanks Jack,
I appreciate your report. Happy Father’s Day back to you and the others. Sunday morning timing conflicts with our church timing but I’ll be back from time to time.
