0900z - 1000z UK 80-metre Net on 3,694
No report Received

1900z-1930z NA Transcontinental net on 7.185
No report Received

0800z Tuesday April 9th EUR 20m net on 14,295.2
From Bill VK4ZD
I listened (and called from time to time) from 0700z until after 0800z.
We will need to listen for long path European activity to confirm a suitable current viable sched time.
From Nick G4HCK
I was listening on the band today and other than a load on noise I heard nothing - so I have switched off and gone for a cup of tea.
It’s odd as the SFI has risen – yes the K factor has also risen but I would have thought the propagation should have been a little better. Evidently mother nature had other ideas.
