Hi all

Attached is the log of our last slow speed NET January 26, 2023

NET was held from Hidden Valley Park Reno, NV. The NET started on time at 11:00 am on 7.045 MHZ. Weather was sunny and calm It has been so cold there is still snow on the ground.

The noise level was S3 a much better day than two weeks ago, a good day on 40 meters, great copy on all. SFI 172 A index 7 K index 3 Xray C1.4

Today there were 6 check ins. Mike WA6ARA, Rob KA6JLT, Craig AE7I, Roy W&HJL, Woody K1LB, and Bob KA6NSN.

First up was Mike from Ridgecrest, CA using his KX3 at 10 watts into his 80 meter Doublet. Mike was using his home brew Z match tuner feeding the balanced feed line.

Next was Rob from home in Reno using his IC 761 at 7 watts into his end fed random wire on the ceiling he gave a good report including the weather.

Next was Craig from his home in Reno using his K2 at 10 watts into his antenna a folded dipole up 70 feet. Craig has QNI with 3 different antennas.

And the Folded dipole at 70 ft his RST 599 my RST 579.  I like the folded dipole the most.

Then is was Roy’s turn from Walla Walla WA using his K3 at 15 watts his signal to me was solid at 589.  Roy gave RST’s for mi Mike Rob and Craig. Also is always good to hear his weather report.

Woody was in the fied today at Hufferake Hills Trail head using his IC 7300 at ten watts to his end fed half wave up 30 ft I was very glad to see him in the field today.
