Notes:
- De PA3BYW: Worked Al - DC5GD/P just before net, good recovery.
- De M0HTE: Some QSB for first two rounds then deteriorated rapidly and could hardly read anybody at the end.
- De ON6WJ: My set up was TX: WS19MK2@10W + RX: BC221 Freq meter as Direct Conversion receiver with one stage RF amplifier (no other help). One stage regen RF amplifier + cathode follower to feed the 1942 BC221 beast (all credit to Lewis Mc Coy QST Nov. 1962). According the BC221 (first calibrated against nearest -red-calibrating marker in the book) all SSN stations were exactly on 3566 kHz +/- 10 Hertz hi x 3.

80 m: 1900 - 2013 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De DC5GD: Catastrophic this evening, miserable conditions, awful QRN and QRM. I could copy letters now and then and some call signs. I went QRT after 20 minutes.
- De F5LAW: Very nice session in spite of heavy QRN and deep QSB. Thanks to Durk - PA3BYW for running the session and to Darrel - AA7FV for listening to today's nets via webSDRs.
- De F6EEQ: Well... for me it was not a nice session!!! Very heavy atmospheric background noise (not QRN). I already had the problem in the morning in our regular QSO (3564, 8:45/9:30) noise making some kind of interference with CW and erasing the signal. At the beginning I could barely copy Durk, and absolutely no copy on John. During second round, things were better, and I could copy everyone. Before the SSN I was with Al DC5GD but signal were very weak. We had a short QSO, so I could improve my German copy, but then he sent me a SMS to say that for SSN there was too much QRM and small signals.
- De AA7FV: A very enjoyable net. It was great to hear the keying of so many friends that I have not yet been able to work. Many thanks for the greetings at the close of net.

Notes:
- De PA3BYW: G4ZXN unavailable.
- De M0HTE: Durk and Yann gradually improved to 599. Rudy, 599 throughout. Fried - nil copy but thought I could hear you faintly at the end but not enough to copy.
- De F6EEQ: once more, a bad SSN session! I was listening at 20:40 (LT) and could barely hear Yann CQ. After Durk had some burst @ 589, but only for a handful of seconds. I heard also Rudy, but also with very deep QSB. Finally I switched off @ 21:30, without calling the gang because propagation was too bad.

ON6WJ/P from garden, August 5, 2018, click to enlarge picture - De ON6WJ: QRV /P from garden with my TS-130S. my "power plant": 2x vy old 26AH 12V lead-gel batteries in series (continually on charge during day via 200W solar panel + cheap "Banggood" SP-controller) the +24V is transformed via DC/DC converter to 13,5V/20A max, no more problems with" flat" batteries (even when 11V each), the output stays always 13,5V via this way. At end, even a big "anti-mosquito wax candle" didn't help anymore, I gave up ,stopped the fight and applied for asylum in the house LOL.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Good signals, some heavy QRN at times. At end of session: G4ZXN with 25W into MLA was RST 599; same report with the One Valver (EL84) running 5W into the G5RV, UFB Martin; ON6WJ was RST 599 +10dB with the WS19 running 12W into the doublet, UFB Jos. MCI BCP to Darrel - AA7FV for the very nice SWL report from Geneva, much appreciated!
- De DC5GD: Strong QRM with 9+60 dB by an (SRI) idiot not reacting to my "QRL PSE QSY" sent several times. He was just sending a single long tone always. Perhaps German army located directly by my side... WX extreme: thunderstorm with wind abt. 100 km / h and heavy rain. Many flashes so I had to go of. Was listening for some time via SDR in Constance but no fun when one is just listening hi hi.
- De ON6WJ: G4ZXN 599 +20dB steady. Afterwards Martin's signal frm Magloop/15W good for only 599 ;-).
- De AA7FV: Listener reports from aa7fv in Geneva. Using a small portable receiver with a 55-cm whip antenna, inside my hotel room. Naturally, a very high noise level here inside the hotel.

Hopefully this will get better next time(s) but now it was already the 3rd time this - pardon me - idiot was there and disturbed me.

Notes:
- De F6EEQ: As usual John is very difficult to read for me, as his report is always around 589/579 just under the background noise. This session was particularly noisy with heavy QRN. I do not know if this is coming from sun conditions, but this is annoying. I also think that the skip is not very favorable for north, but it is strange that I hear Martin rather well, and almost not John.
