Hi all

Attached is the log of our last slow speed NET September 22, 2022

NET was held from Hidden Valley Park in east Reno, it was started on

time 10:00 AM on 7.045 MHZ. The weather was sunny and calm. The noise level was S3

SFI 1137 A index 5 K index 1 Xray C1.0

Today there were only 4 check ins Rob KA6JLT, Mike WA6ARA, Bob KA7NSN, and Woody K1LB.

Rob was first to report using his IC 761 at 10 watts I gave him 59 + 10 over Rob does very good with his indoor random wire on the ceiling. At the end of his report he mentioned that he heard Van W7IEXtrying to check in.

Next was Mike’s turn from his home in Ridgecrest, CA With only ten wats from his KX3 into his 80 Mt Dipole he was a solid 599. In his report he mentioned the weather and that Rob was 439.

Bob and Woody were I/O so no report from them.

I had hoped to hear Van W7IEX at last call but he didn’t check in.

I did hear a W7 at the start in a big pileup so I couldn’t tell who it was.

OP’s need to listen when I send QNS with the stations that I copied.

If you don’t hear your call it is time to call again at the next CQ.

Phil AB7WE, was visiting in Oregon he wrote.

I copied most of the Net this morning using my computer and an SDR website maintained by W7PUA located near Corvalis, OR about 500 miles from Reno.

These are averages as signals were varying plus/minus 1 around these reports.
