Many thanks to Pertti EA7GSU for the following report:-

Hóla amigos,

Sunday afternoon Atlantic net opened as usual with Mike, N4PF coming
back to my first call with very good S9 signal. He was followed by
Klaus, HB9CQS with also S9 signal although running barefoot. Les,
PA0SDZ was the next with 5,7/8 and there was a change of reports
between participants. The doomday boom signal by Coco, YO9BC was 30dB
over S9 in my receiver. Malcolm, PA3AHC had still problems with the
station and was difficult to read. We mended the situation later when
he replaced the trcx and was then 5,8/9 with me.
Interesting conversation was initiated by Mike, G8LES and he's rotary
news of the area which is suffering, like many others of the loss of
members and difficulties in recruiting. I advise members to contact
Mike if you are struggling with the same problem. Mike has been
involved with a study of the subject.

As a whole propagations were very good although band was noisy. We are
looking for more members and more interesting opinions next Sunday!
