From John G3OKT
Hi Bill, comment from Brian if you are able to put together shortened report for this week.
Glad to see propagation improving.
Brian doesn't mention Storm Abigail which battered NW Scotland.
Obviously didn't affect Southern England where he is, but caused me to take antenna down before entering hospital for a few days.
73s John
From Brian G3LUW
The propagation on 20m was very good. There was a lot of background noise but most signals were strong.
I worked or heard John ZL2JPM, Doug ZL1BFS, Bill VK4ZD, Peter VK3KCD, Noel  VK2IWT, Phil VK2MCB. All very readable signals.
I could read Malcolm PA3AHC. Both Klaus HB9CQS and Pertti EA7GSU were 5&9+. 
Nick G4HCK was not heard here, but got good reports from downunder.
The net was well under way when I switched on at 0730, and Bill closed the net on the hour.

80m was also quite noisy, but John G7OAI, Tommy G2FUU and Bob G3SZF were good signals.
