G3JJR John
G0EGW Vernon
Conditions and inter-G condx were not good with reports generally down and deep QSB evident.
It was good to have Vernon G0EGW join us, adding much of interest including his continental ROAR contacts on 40m.
Later, Brian, John (G7OAI) and Bob ZOOMed into Ed N3EDT's evening net and enjoyed a very interesting presentation by Ken NG2H.
 
From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
Hello !
This morning, it was interesting :
On 20m : OH2BAD / G4HCK / myself
On Peanut : VK2MCB / G4HCK / ZL2WT / ZL2JPM / VK4ZD / 4G4S (Sonny from Virginia Beach USA) / Myself
On 40m : G0EGW / F4FCW / DG7SF * (Gunther from Stuttgart) / Myself
ON 80m : G0EGW in QSO with F4FCW disturbed by a Belgian station 2 KHz lower
The waves : Véry fast QSB and at the same time, stations disappearing very deep and on the contrary climbing up high...
Interesting also : The skywire antenna was the queen this morning: With his multilobes the skywire received everything. I compared the vertical antenna on 40m,
and the delta loop on 20m and Both generated a high level of noise, instead of the skywire...I would be impressive to hear in recording.
Bill, I think it's really the beginning of the sunrise....
So Soon
Jean-Pierre

Whilst calling for Europe I was called by HS0ZEX who was 56 and gave me 57
Vernon G0EGW called and made himself heard eventually with a 33 signal.
He said that Nick was there as well but I couldnt hear Nick. I think Vernon gave me 33 also (there was lots of QSB)
