From Bill VK4ZD
The stations that I heard were John ZL2JPM, Phil VK2MCB, Peter VK4KCD, Vernon G0EGW and Nick G4HCK.
However, once again the system failed for me. After being heard when I checked in I was not heard when it was my turn to have an over :(

Doug ZL1BFS was 56 and gave me the same
Peter VK3KCD was 57 and gave me 58
Vernon G0EGW was 57-8 and gave me the same
Roy VK7ROY (visitor) was 58 here but didn’t give me a report

0700z-0800z Europe - Anzo Net on 14,295.2 Long Path
From Bill VK4ZD
No signals were heard here.
 
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.

1900z-1930z NA Transcontinental net on 7.185
No report Received
 
0700z Tuesday September 11th EUR 20m net on 14,295.2
From Bill VK4ZD
No propagation to Europe again. No signals were heard here.

 
From Nicholas G4HCK to Vernon
For the last few weeks there has been an Italian station plus another carrier either on or very close to 295.2. Do you think we should move slightly? As I type this there is now an odd noise on the frequency.
I thought I heard Malcolm PA3AHC but could not confirm.
Just as I was about to switch off YO9BC Coco appeared and we had a quick QSO but again an odd noise appeared on the frequency.
 
We note that F1CFA Jean-Pierre was on holidays over this week so, no radio.
