From Nick G4HCK
Had a short qso on peanut with a couple of people in Australia then Dev appeared from the Caribbean –
He was at a party and wanted to return (wonder why) so again the qso was short.
I then transferred to 20m where I found Vernon G0EGW and that was all.

From Bill VK4ZD
I was 10 minutes late for this net but nothing was heard while I listened for the next 20 minutes.
Vernon later called on Skype to say that he had been in the shack from 0600z (early).
I noted what Vernon and Nick had said about Pertti EA7GSU not being heard.
I have tried to call him on his mobile more than once but the phone appears to be turned off or unavailable.
I did not fully understand the Spanish announcement.
From Phil VK2MCB
I missed the net due to a family function.
