0530z-0600z D-Star Net
From Bill VK4ZD
The stations present were David ZL2WT and Peter VK3KCD.
I was there until our local Ipswich repeater showed a constant strong signal with no audio which prevented me from using the system.

Doug ZL1BFS was 56-7 peaking 58 and gave me 56-7 peaking 58-9
We went QRT at 0648z when propagation died
From Nicholas G4HCK
Sorry to sound negative but today everyone had jumped ship.
The K factor was 5 and the SFI was 68 and I had an S5 noise level so everything was against us.
However Peanut did enable me to have a quick chat with ZL and VK which was excellent. Let’s see what happens on Tuesday.
Regards, Nicholas Wilkinson.
From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
I just come back from the station...
This morning, I tried on 40 m to hear someone. The band was polluted by some Italian peoples, but it seems to me to have copy of your signal in the background..
On 20 m, the band was dead, except with my Italian friend using some Kilowatts on 14297 KHz
I would tell you that on next Tuesday, and Sunday and Tuesday again i will be on holidays.
When, on return, I hope to discover a 20 m band renew and cleaned !!!
Best Wishes, John, P.
