Roar Nets August 11th and 13th 2019


Report for Week of 11 August 2019
Many thanks for the reports Nicholas and Miika
From Phil VK2MCB
I had previously asked Miika if he had any contact details for Pertti’s son or daughter. The following emails arrived. They are copied in their entirety hoping some of you are Finnish speakers. I am composing a letter of condolence from the ANZO ROAR members to send to Marketta.

From Miika OH2BAD:
Hi Phil!
I finally got in touch with Pertti´s relative, his youngest daughter (see letter below mailing address removed).
Also included his funeral announcement, published in Thursday´s newspaper.
The CW-text (in Finnish) reads "Life is wonderful".
Pertti was my "best man" when I had my bachelor-evening in 1979!
Please see the attachment for Pertti’s death notice.
Regards, Miika, OH2BAD
From Marketta Jause:
Olen hänen tyttärensä.

I had a carrier on the frequency then another station started a qso close by so I gave up.
But, having said this, Coco YO9BC appeared on the band. We had a short qso – conditions again were not good.
