1200z - 1300z International Net on 14,292
From Pertti EA7GSU
The band full of contesters didn't promise good. I called and got Mike, N4PF back but under fierce QRM. He had been 57 without but that
situation didn't materialize. Apart, Mike had even worse situation
receiving me only 45. After about ten minutes we decided to close, as
there were no other stations reporting. Net finished at 1210.

1800z – 1830z RIBI evening 80-metre Net on 3,692

From Pertti EA7GSU
The contest going on til midnight, I didn't even open the receiver
fort the NA Continental net at 2000hrs!

From Bob WB7RQG
Contesters took over the frequencies
so I canceled the net

0700z – 0730z Tuesday 4th March NZ 80-m net on 3693

0730z – 0830z Tuesday 4th March EUR net on 7175
From Pertti EA7GSU
Present were John, EA/G4HMG and Jean Pierre, F1CFA when I opened the
radio. We got Brian, G3LUW and also Malcolm, PA3AHC who was out of
reach of the Spanish stations. J - P was 57 and so was Brian. John had
a 59+ signal but Malcolm gained only 11 from Spain.
In principle propagations good but variable field strength. The net
closed appr. 0835.
We have a high ranking qrg: A german station was waiting for us to
finish to start an other net on the same opening!!!

That's all folks, 73 Pertti

That’s all for now,
