ROAR Nets Report for Sunday 6 January and Tuesday 8 January 2019
Emailed Messages
From Phil VK2MCB
It appears that Nick did not receive last week’s weekly report which gave amended net times. Bill confirmed that Nick is on the mailing list and suggested Nick’s spam filter be checked. If there are any other members having trouble, please let me know.

Vernon G0EGW was 53 and gave me 43 but he slowly became weaker.
Pertti EA7GSU was 41 but only heard me 21.
Zenec SP5INQ was 54 and gave me 53
Jean Pierre F1CFA was 31 but I did not have a chance to give him a call. He dropped to 21 at 0900z
Vitor CT1BJZ, Malcolm PA3AHC were not heard, and Nick G4HCK was only 21 at 0910z.
Still, making contact with Europe was a significant achievement.
From Nick G4HCK
This morning net was good in that so many people appeared on the band. Pertti I am sure was sitting next to me. The QRN from an adjacent station did create some problems but at least we made it.I understand there has been a change in the times.
Can someone confirm this.
