Sorry, I was absent from QTH this Sunday.
0800z - 0900z UK 80-metre Net on 3,694
From John G7OAI who was net controller
I opened the net at 0759z, with Brian, G3LUW. G3JJR was next on parade, and after a couple of overs Tommy & Bob joined us.
Bruce called in soon after, as did Bill. The seven of us enjoyed very good conditions throughout, with various topics discussed, Rotary & otherwise. Bob reported that interest in the AGM was looking good.
Reports from me were as follows:-
G3LUW - 5x9+20
G3JJR - 5x9+10
G2FUU - 5x9+20
G3SZF - 5x9+20
G0PCF - 5x9
G4LXD - 5x9
Everyone was down a bit from time to time, but the QSB was only slight, and not noticeable unless one was scrutinising the bar graph. Armchair copy throughout, only spoilt by a continental station 2kcs down. But not enough to cause us to move. Best conditions for a long time! I closed the net at 0849z.
1200z – 1300z TransAtlantic Net on 14,287/8 or at 1500z on Sunday on 14287kHz or 14.310MHz
1700z – 1730z RIBI evening 80-metre Net on 3,693 MHz
2000z - 2030z N.AM Transcontinental Net on 14,287/8 or 14.310
0700z – 0730z Tuesday 11th October 2016 NZ 80-m net on 3,693
0630z - 0700z Tuesday 11th October 2016 EUR net on 14,295.2 / 7,136 +/-
