Sunday, January 5, 2020.

80 m: 2000 - 2100 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De PA3BYW: Heard vy faint signals in the background. But couldn't detect any C/S. Sorry I've missed Uli DL2KHU, Martin G4ZXN and perhaps other stations. 73/HNY.
- De F5LAW: Absolutely NIL from NCS at first, I couldn't QNI. Thanks to Giulio - IK2DED who checked in and QSPed my call to NCS, we made it at last. Heard very weak signal from Uli - DL2KHU at very end. First session of 2020, let's hope for better conditions next time... A Happy and Healthy Year 2020 to you and yours friends.
- De DL2KHU: no short skip this evening. I heard RA3PMW, F5LAS and IK2DED in QSO with Durk, PA3BYW, but I could not copy Durk. Also I heard F5LAW, Yann sometimes with a very week signal. At the end of the session I tried to check in but my sigs were too week in PA.
- De G4ZXN: Yes strange conditions, I did hear F5LAS and also Giulio IK2DED, but no one else...

Sunday, January 19, 2020.

80 m: 2000 - 2148 UTC, 3567 kHz.

Notes:
- De PA3BYW: 3566 kHz occupied, QSY to 3567 kHz. Enjoyed the session. Great QNI list!
- De F5LAW: Super session with excellent conditions, all signals gradually improveing. Glad Jan - ON4ASZ checked in again at very end, good QRP signal.
- De DL2KHU: A nice session. Vy pleased to work Giulio the first time.
- De DC5GD: What a pleasure to hear you after such a long abstinence! (And I will not be on air next Sunday - shame on me!) Good condx this time, even copied G0IIK, Nigel!!

Sunday, January 26, 2020.

80 m: 2000 - 2113 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Extremely unsettled conditions and heavy QRN here, poor path to PA. What a difference with last Sunday's excellent conditions and great QNI list.
- De DC5GD: what a mess this time. Band and condx were most terrible I ever had. All stns were nil several times. Some signs or even some words like standing side by side and next moment nothing but "shhhhhh" from the loudspeaker. This was not QSB but QSBBB. Anyway it was a pleasure to hear Durk playing his new, homemade key like David Garrett his Stradivari. Really a wonderful clear sound, cher ami Durk.
- De M0HTE: I came up last night and heard Durk briefly 559 then faded to about 229. Nil heard from anyone else on the net. I put in a couple of calls but don't think I was heard. Moving down the band I heard a DL station calling at S9 but he couldn't hear me. Checked my aerial this morning and it was still up!

Sunday, February 2, 2020.

80 m: 2000 - 2150 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De DC5GD: Good session this time despite QRM all the time and QSB during last minutes. Had to leave after more than 1 hour of beautiful cootie sound of NCS and 7 ops. Best session this year! What a mess this time.
- De F5LAW: Great session but some very annoying QRM: digital mode, SSB, AM or FM?, CW beacon in background...

Sunday, February 9, 2020.

80 m: 2000 - 2035 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Ciara was a very impressive storm, strong wind at 115 kph here + violent gusts. Band was noisy with weak signals, I was wondering if my G5RV was still up... NIL from ON4ADI (QSP de DC5GD/P) and lost both DC5GD/P and G4ZXN in QSB. Been calling CQ SSN till 2035Z but most regulars were unavailable due to storm.
- De DC5GD: only heard Yann in first round, than some poor code from Martin but got the QRA. Some minutes before had contact to ON4ADI, Paul. Sig vy weak but we could exchange greetings and RST. Left after abt. 30 minutes of absolute silence and nobody responding to my calls.
- De M0HTE: Nothing heard on SSN this evening. Storms here today but the antenna stayed up!
- De PA3BYW, DL2KHU: Unavailable: TSTMs, antennas disconnected.

- De DC5GD: I was listening to SSN round via WEB SDR in Heppen, Belgium. Missing me, you all were a little QRQ and sometimes too quick for me. Many tu's an ee's at end of the session at about 2210 local time here. Thanks for good wishes my frds, was very glad to hear my QRA several times during the session.
