Good group from about 7PM ET. All signed by about 8:15 PM. The band remained intact the entire time and no QRM.

I was still hearing you and Jim very well when we signed. I'm sure we could have continued on for quite some time. I tuned down the band and heard many strong stateside stations on SSB. A little further down the band was OD5ZZ booming in from Lebanon and a VK6 coming in on the long path.

I called CQ about 5:30 CDST on 14.325 because of a SSB QSO going on at 14.332 but received no responses.

I found the band to be extremely noisy and QSB.

I did hear you guys off and on but felt conditions were too iffy to break in.

Interesting. When I did hear you Steve I thought you had to be running at least 250W since you peaked at 10/S9 here in CR.

Steve was putting out an excellent signal at low power, and has his wire antennas working very well. He was peaking S-9 here in Florida, with not that much QSB. Equally impressive is how he has the FT-1000 sounding on AM. Very FB!

Sorry you couldn't make it Jim, darn good turn out.

KD6OS (Ralph -OK) Net control as he could copy everyone at his location.
W7IUC (Norm - TN)
N2XD (John - NC)
WA2ROC (Dick - NC)
W8GPA (Rupe -OH)
W4UMH (Howard - FL)
W9AD (Dave - IL) at home QTH, not in Mexico.
N1VIV (Joe - CT)
KS2AM (Sam - NJ)
and myself of course.....


Norm had his beam pointed west most of the net looking for west coast check-ins, without ever hearing a response. Net finished up around 8:30 Eastern. Then Dave (W6PSS) and Pete (W1HCE) broke in for a bit, and everything concluded at about 8:50 Eastern.

Have fun next Monday evening guys, I have a meeting that evening that I know is going to run long and I can't make it. See ya in two weeks!

OK, Monday April 22nd 14.330 net lasted about an hour and a half. The band took a dip in propagation for a while, and then came back near the end at 8:30 PM eastern.

The check-ins included:

W8GPA
KD6OS
N2XD
W8FAX
WA2ROC
W2IQK
ZF2SJ
W9AD
WD5JKO

Not too bad actually. It was worth the trip to 20M AM...

Look again next Monday around 7PM Eastern time

It felt real good to be back after missing the past two weeks. Condx were fair tonight, until towards the end of the net when signals picked up quite nicely. With that brought two Spanish speaking operators that parked right on .330 USB, that were peaking S-9 to me here in Florida as mentioned on another thread. They refused to move for about 20 minutes, but thankfully then went QRT.

Check-ins were:
W8GPA (Rupe)
WD5JKO (Jim)
WA2ROC (Dick)
W2IQK (Carl)
KD6OS (Ralph)
Timtron
K4HX (Steve)
KS2AM (Sam)
and me. Smiley

The net finished up about 8:20 eastern. Same time, same frequency next week. Vy 73

We're having T-Storms all this evening so I may have to miss this weeks session, unless the weatherman is wrong....

Wild prorogation last night! Signals one moment would be in the mud, and then S-9 or even S-9+. Check-ins were:

W8GPA (Rupe)
W9AD (Dave)
W2IQK (Carl)
KD4RSX (Randall)
W8BOX (Tom)
KD6OS (Ralph)
WA2ROC (Dick)
KA1QIY (Joe)
N1VIV (Joe)
and myself.

Net ended at around 8:20 eastern, as the band seemed to begin to go out at that time.

T-Storms around the area tonight, making operation questionable.  I'll give it a try though.  Can't promise anything though.
