Notes:
- De K9TJL: Many sigs here on 20M today, at times there would be 3 Stations at one time transmitting on QRG. Thanks to modern day filters cranked way down good copy.
- De F5LAW: Heavy QRM, very unusual short skip conditions, UK stations booming in.
- De G4CPA: Darrel's sigs were in the shadows nothing showing on the meter HI! Where at the beginning of session Yann was 20 dB over 9, the strongest I ever hrd him.

When the signal faded down on the vertical, it was back up in strength on the rhombic. F5LAW: Steady, very little QSB. 20m was the best band today.

No net this date, a very merry Xmas to all. Most participants were unavailable and very poor conditions.
- 5T0JL made several contacts on 20/15m; tried some CQ SSN but NIL return. 1538Z Hrd an SSN call but unable to read. 1540-1545Z attempting to read a call but impossible mixing with the noise floor level.
- K9TJL reported 5T0JL on 14055 kHz at 1542 UTC, RST 22/339.
- F5LAW reported K3CKT on 14055 kHz at 1510 UTC, RST 449 QSB.
