From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
No contact on 7015 as the frequency was occupied by an Italian station
This morning, we met with G4HCK, PA3AHC and G0EGW.
An Italian station was on 14295,0 and had QSO with Bill VK4ZD...Surprising !
PA3AHC was 43/41 , G4HCK was 54/55 moving from 51 to 58 , G0EGW was 59/59
PA3AHC was heard by G4HCK and G4HCK / G0EGW can't hear each other.
This morning was interesting as the Australian and New Zealand stations were suspected, but the QSB was deep. On my delta loop the QSB was like a vapor motor...teuf, teuf, teuf and on the flat loop low and deep with a low QRM.
 
0800z - 0900z UK 80-metre Net on 3,694
No Report Received
 
1900z-1930z NA Transcontinental net on 7.185
