Sunday, January 1, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2039 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Extremely poor conditions again. M0HTE tried to check in but not detected, sorry John. Happy and healthy new year to all and let's hope for better paths in 2017...
- De PA3BYW: Happy new year to you all!
- De M0HTE: I thought that I heard Yann very faintly this evening and tried calling a couple of times but no response. Happy New Year my friends and hope conditions improve.

Sunday, January 8, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2156 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De ON6WJ: Antenna comparison test:
Ant1 = Doublet 2x30m up +/- 8m;
Ant2 = 200cm Diam Mag Loop Antenna (MLA).
ON6WJ's MLA, click to enlarge picture Simple loop made of 15mm diam central heating Alu pipe, remote controlled, up +/- 2,5m, pointed "North-South" direction for PA and F. Next week will turn to "East-West" for the UK gang. In the table below RSTs with MLA are in brackets.

Sunday, January 15, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2100 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: No session due to extremely poor conditions. Been calling CQ SSN from 1950 to 2030 UTC. Only station detected and identified: ON6WJ. No QSO.
- De ON6WJ: Strong interference by that SM6 Beacon station. QSO only HB9BJL.
- De PA3BYW: Horrible conds. heard a lot of Bulgarian stns calling CQ-test with 599 signals on the lower band edge. So no short skip this session. QSO only HB9BJL; NCS short peak at 589.
- De G3VTT: I searched for you at around 2044 and only heard a weak HB9 working Jos ON6WJ. The band was full of noise. This must be like the end of the world!

Sunday, January 22, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2125 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Fast QSB all the way, G4ZXN had to relay between ON6WJ and NCS due to long skip conditions.
- De G4ZXN: QSP Nigel - G0IIK is listening but rough copy.

Sunday, January 29, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2056 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- NB: ON6WJ QRV from 1955 to 2020 UTC reported heavy QRM and signals far too weak to make QSO. ON6WJ detected at PA3BYW, ON4ADR and received 339 at F5LAW.

Sunday, February 5, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2145 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De ON4ADR: Yesterday I was too late on the net, stayed a very short time, it was to cold upstairs in my shack and to late for start up my central heater. Here, the band was much calmer and quieter than last week, and so much more pleasant to listen to. Heard ON6WJ, F5LAW and PA3BYW.

80 m: 2000 - 2154 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- NB: Colin - G3VTT was running QRP 5W from H/B One valve TX, excellent signal!
- De ON6WJ: 2nd RX antenna: 2m ∅ mag loop on ground level. A few days ago: blown from roof of caravan by heavy wind (a storm with different names hi). Receiving rprts with MLA: all stns at least 20dB down (3 S-points). BUT now stronger sigs than before on top of roof caravan!

80 m: 1900 - 2120 UTC, 3567 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Number stations are back on 3566 kHz, not very strong but annoying. QSY to 3567 kHz but heavy phone/data QRM at beginning, FB later. Number stations still on 3566 kHz after 2120Z. Late QNI de ON6WJ, excellent sending with WT8Amp key using 2 fingers, UFB!
- De F6EEQ: Conditions were not good yesterday. First QRM on 3566 by some CW stations (no call??), and then better when we QSY on 3567. But still heavy QRN and very fast and deep QSB, especially on PA3BYW. I will not be QRV next week.
- De ON6WJ: Arrived at the parade some 25 minutes after "1900UTC lift off". I enjoyed the whole session. Just at the end I signed in to give ur receiving reports here in Dendermonde. SRI still big problems with right Thumb so had to use a simple WT8Amp "driven" by index and middle finger no thumb hi!

80 m: 1900 - 2034 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: The net shifted 1 kHz up at 1946 UTC due to QRM from Number station on 3566 kHz. Lost F6EEQ, M0HTE and G0IIK after QSY.
- De F6EEQ: At the beginning, everybody, save John which I did not hear even guessed, was 599/599+10, then deep and slow QSB. Durk you were under 589, Yann I almost lost you, only Nigel was more or less stable. Then the big QRM from number station came, and covered every transmission. I only heard Yann calling M0HTE, but not the QSY...
- De PA3BYW: Bad QRM on 3566 from strong nr stations so QSY 1 up. Sorry, John, Nigel and Gérard/ Lost you completely. Yann's Sigs went down to 459.
- De M0HTE: After round one I had lost you all to QRM/QSB and had to drop out. I sent something out but not sure if it was read. Sorry, just couldn't read anybody in the end.

Sunday, November 19, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2122 UTC, 3565 kHz.

Notes:
- De PA3BYW: QRM5 on 3566 kHz so shifted to 3565 kHz. Heard vy faint signals and recognized Yann's FB cootie fist. But very hard to copy; RST 229. Signals from F5ROB, Claude 599+10/ QSB. Excellent. TNX for QSP msg's. Very SRI no QSO with John, Gérard and others.
- De F5LAW: Strange conditions indeed. QRM 5 on 3566 kHz, big noise, shifted to 3565 kHz, heard extremely weak signals, no copy, understood that was Durk - PA3BYW calling. I "checked in" (2006Z) but no real QSO until Claude - F5ROB came to our rescue (2027Z) to QSP.
- De F6EEQ: I heard Durk PA3BYW call around 20:50, but too low to allow QSO (around 359). So I stayed put, awaiting improvement of propagation. Around 21:10 I heard Yann F5LAW, but in same bad conditions... Later on I heard Claude F5ROB with a very good report (599+10)...
- De M0HTE: Nothing heard on the SSN net tonight. Thought I heard Durk briefly but nothing else.
- De CN8YR: Nil copy at Twente webSDR but solid copy all the time at DK0TE webSDR. Heard Durk's French QSO with Claude at the beginning and the French chat Yann / Claude. Very strange no sigs in PA and strong sigs in DL land.

Notes:

- De PA3BYW: Started the net on usual QRG 3566 kHz but QSY 3596 kHz due to contest QRM. Rig was new homebuilt mcHF (vs06) SDR TRX, 10W. The rig was build from scratch using the two boards from M0NKA and ordered (SMD) components from Mouser, Conrad and other companies. Display and case came from China. Using the newest firmware from UHSDR. I had several drawbacks building this rig. But finally succeeded. PFF...

- De F5LAW: Very strange conditions, steady signals from G and F stations but PA and ON signals fluctuating rapidly between NIL and 58/99. I was losing completely Durk and Jos at times.
- De ON6WJ: PA3BYW: Durk very SRI dear OB but could not write a single word, extremely weak rare "seen" such conds. G4ZXN: all the way QRK 5. F5LAW: up and down between NIL and 599, very strange. F5ROB: solid copy all the way. If there is no "radio-path" between A and B...I think no receiver can do the job...

80 m: 2000 - 2137 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F6EEQ: Gilbert - F5AUZ was listening via SA0CAM webSDR, good signals from all stations.
- De M0HTE: Nice to be heard on the Net again after few weeks when it was 'no go'. ON4ADR was the loudest station.

Sunday, December 31, 2017.

80 m: 2000 - 2107 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: PA3BYW unavailable, I took NCS. Lost M0HTE after round 1. F6EEQ and G4ZXN couldn't stay long. I had a nice chat at end with F6IJU. We have had a great 2017 EU SSN edition. To all participants and particularly to Durk - PA3BYW, thanks so much for your participation and summaries, a Happy and Healthy Year 2018 to you and yours fellows.
- De M0HTE: Sorry, had to drop out. F5LAW started at 559 but gradually faded away. I think I heard F6IJU but not to sure. F6EEQ was 529 but he couldn't read me. Wishing you a happy New Year and hope to be on the net next Sunday.
