VK4ZD was 5.4 with HB9CQS. Miika had no copy of Bill – same here at 0740.

From Brian G3LUW
I spoke to Pertti EA7GSU at 0730, 5&9 both ways.
The VKs and ZLs were not quite 100% copy here. I exchanged 5&6 with Phil VK2MCB
with similar reports with Bill, VK4ZD. John ZL2JPM and Doug ZL1BFS called me. I could
hear them both, but copy was quite difficult. Apparently Peter VK3KCD called as well, but I
had no copy. They were all just above the noise level. Klaus HB9CQS gave me 5&4. He
was 5&6 here. Bill closed the net on the hour. His signal was holding up at 5&6.
