From John G3OKT
F1CFA returned to my CQ but was only 2.2 in the noise, copy difficult. I think Jean Pierre gave me 5.5? Brian later gave Jean Pierre 4.4.
G3LUW also could just hear Jean Pierre – Brian and I exchanged 5.5 b/w
HB9CQS Klaus was 5.6 here. He said both Brian and I were very weak at 3.3.
VK2MCB gave Klaus 5.9+10dB and got 5.9.  Phil was an excellent 5.8 here, gave both me and Brian 5.9. Brian returned Phil’s report as 5.9. Jean Pierre gave Phil 5.7 and got 5.8.
That’s all for now,
73’s from John G3OKT
