0600z-0630z / 2200z-2230z Europe - Anzo Net on 14,295.2 Long Path
From Klaus HB9CQS
When the net started at 06:00z, signals were generally small. They improved as we continued, indicating that at least on this Sunday we may have started too early. Deep QSB remained a problem throughout the net. Pertti was in the chair and did a fine job helped by his geographical position. He was able to work all stations. Other stations on the net were Malcolm, PA3AHC (never heard here) / Nick, G4HCK / John, G3OKT / Vernon, G0EGW (for once very weak here) and Brian, G3LUW. I told the other participants about my QSOs with Bill, VK4ZD, on Sundays and Tuesday at 22:00z and invited them all to participate.

From Nick G4HCK
Today was interesting on 20m (07.00 – 08.00 BST).
Pertti was in the chair (EA7GSU) one minute 5.9 next QSB. Also I spoke to Klaus (HB9CQS) and Vernon G0EGW. There were other station on but they came and went as conditions changed.
I had the rig on after the net finished and 20 minutes later heard F1CFA John P calling so had a short QSO with him.

From Bill VK4ZD

Nothing heard here from Europe at 0600z.
At 2200z Klaus HB9CQS was 54-5 and gave me 22.
Vernon G0EGW called in at about 0615z with a consistent 55-6 and gave me 55-7
Les PA0SDZ was present and I detected him at the end of the net as 22 and think he gave me 41
