From Brian G3LUW
The 20m net started at 0700 and was incredibly noisy. The CQWW SSB CONTEST was in full swing, The QRM did die down a little towards the end, but it was difficult copy all round.
Bill VK4ZD, Peter VK3KCD and Doug ZL1BFS were good signals. Miika OH2BAD called in initially, but was not heard again. Pertti EA7GSU was 5&9, and Klaus HB9CQS 5&7.
They were the only stations I heard. The start time was about right.

From Brian G3LUW
There were only 4 of us on 80m. Tommy G2FUU in charge with John G7OAI/p , Bob G3SZF and me.
All good clear signals, but Tommy closed the net at 0830z             
Hope you enjoyed EA6      73   Brian

From Pertti EA7GSU
Sunday NA - EU net at 1800 - 1830 utc 14287/14040 kHz

As result of net mail communication we agreed with Ken, W8SOO to meet
in spite of contest qrm. I heard Ken but couldn't read so Ken
suggested cw on 14040 kHz. It was succesful as cw band was nearly
empty. Ken was 599 and gave me 579.
We agreed to try again on Sunday at 2000 utc on 14287kHz. I promised
to alert previous participants to  come forward.
Following Sunday success we tried again on Monday and had qso with
59/57 reports at 1800 utc.
So, come and join us!

Bill gradually built-up to 5&9 and Pertti was a very strong signal.  Bill gave me 5&7.
