0700z - 0730z Anzo Net on 7,105 +/- QRM

The frequency was heavily occupied so I called on the closest clear frequency which was 7.098 but got no takers other than a visitor Kevin VK7KEV who was 59 and gave me 59 also

From Nicholas G4HCK
Conditions were not quite so good with the exception of a new person from the South Island ZL who was 5.9. But we made contact so 100% success.

Tuesday 100% failure as the band was not in our favour.
