0730z - 0830z Europe - Anzo Net on 14,295.2 Long Path
From Brian G3LUW
Excellent conditions this morning. Stations from Australasia were Bill VK4ZD, Noel VK2IWT, Phil VK2MCB, Peter VK3KCD, Brian VK2BX, Doug ZL1BFS and John ZL2JPM. All were very readable, and they were reading the Europeans well. We had Klaus HB9CQS, Pertti EA7GSU, Malcolm PA3AHC, Jean-Pierre F1CFA  and a guest Dan SM6TZL. I could not hear France or the Netherlands at all, until they suddenly appeared at 5.9 towards the end of the net.
