Report Tables.

Sunday, January 7, 2018.

20 m: 1500 - 1530 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 95 W at first, then QRO to kW. Another 3 or more dB s/n on the intercontinental signals would make a big difference! Conditions for this first intercontinental net of 2018 were not great. Hopefully things will improve later in the year. All the best for 2018 to everyone.
- De F5LAW: HNY to all, let's hope for better conditions in 2018.
- De KA5TJS: AA7FV Nil to 599 at the end. Signals very low but Darrel came up nicely. TNX and CUL.

17 m: 1604 - 1636 UTC, 18088 kHz.

Notes:
- De CN8YR: 1600 - 1603 UTC 21055 kHz: Nil sigs. 17m: Yann and me heard K3CKT Jim and AA7FV Darrel calling SSN from time to time. I lost Yann completely around 1630z. Jim and Darrel signed off at 1636z.
- De F5LAW: 1600 - 1605 UTC, 21055 kHz: NIL. 17m: Good path to CN but Completely lost NCS' signals at 1618Z. Signals back at 1629Z, then QSB, NIL again. NIL from USA here at end.
- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz, nothing heard. 17m: I briefly heard another "CQ SSN" under Jim at 1615 UTC (de F5LAW: that was me, sorry, I had lost all signals), but it disappeared in QSB. After signing with Jim at 1635 UTC I heard Med's call clearly, before it disappeared again into the QSB. I tried calling Med, but he couldn't hear me.

Sunday, January 14, 2018.

20 m: 1500 - 1555 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De KA5TJS: It was ruff but glad to hear you guys. I could not hear TJ at all and only pulled out about 50% on Yann. Jim started to drop out toward the end.
- De F5LAW: QRM 5 at first on 14055 kHz, but heard K3CKT calling, checked in. Checked alt QRG and heard AA7FV and K9TJL, QSPed net on 14055 kHz, QSY back to regular QRG.
- De AA7FV: 1500 UTC. Contest QRM on 14055 kHz, so listened on 14349 kHz, and found TJ (1502 UTC). Yann came up to tell us that Jim and Allen were in QSO on 14055 kHz. So, QSY: 1515 UTC 14055 kHz.

17 m: 1604 - 1625 UTC, 18088 kHz.

Notes:
- De CN8YR: 1600 - 1603 UTC 21055 kHz: Band totally closed here. 17m: Many QRM from EU stns working up XT2AW who was on 18086 kHz.
- De F5LAW: 1600 - 1604 UTC, 21055 kHz: NIL. 17m: Good path to NCS, no other stations heard.
- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz: Nothing heard. 1610 UTC, 18088 kHz: Heard K3CKT and CN8YR, both equally weak, both calling CQ SSN, but not hearing each other at all. Med was in QSO with F5LAW, but I couldn't hear Yann at all. I tried calling both K3CKT and CN8YR, but neither could hear me, even with QRO. Surely conditions MUST get better soon?

Sunday, January 21, 2018.

20 m: 1500 - 1535 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: Running 95 watts, until last 2 minutes I went QRO to kW. I could hear another weak signal in the noise, but too weak to copy any characters. I'm not sure if it was a SSN station or not.

Sunday, January 28, 2018.

20 m: 1500 - 1544 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Unusually poor paths intra USA on 20m, crazy conditions.
- De AA7FV: Yann was the only station I could copy well. Exceptionally poor conditions today, but Yann was a good signal in AZ on 20m, doing a great NCS job with all the QSPs.
- De KA5TJS: AA7FV: Very weak this morning, very unusual. K3CKT: Good copy all the way thru. F5LAW Weak but band was quiet. 95% copy.
- De G4CPA: Nothing hrd in Yorkshire, except an EA stn calling for FISTS contacts on 14.055 and nearby contest stns. Condx were bad to say the least, dead on 21 & 18 MHz also!

- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz: Nothing heard. 1606 UTC, 18088 kHz: K3CKT 339, then faded out and disappeared completely.

Sunday, February 4, 2018.

20 m: 1500 - 1601 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 95 watts at first, then at end of 20m net QRO to kW. 1500 UTC: QRM on 14055 kHz, so QSY to 14055.5 kHz... I heard K3CKT already in QSO with KA5TJS on 14055, so with Yann we QSY back to 14055 kHz. I did not hear G4CPA after our QSY.
- De F5LAW: 1500 UTC: 14055 kHz QRM 5. AA7FV took NCS on 14055.5 kHz till 1523Z, then back to 14055 kHz with K3CKT and KA5TJS. AA7FV had to QSP most transmissions.
- De KA5TJS: Well I did not hear anything when I came on freq. so made a call and heard Jim. We had a good QSO and then we made a couple of calls. I heard a signal above us and went up .50 and heard Darrel talking to someone. I went back down so Jim did not think he lost me to tell him about Darrel and then he joined us. No other stations heard here in ETX.

20 m: 1500 - 1542 UTC, 14055.2 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: Conditions not too bad on 20m. No QRO needed. (Just a little HF, to avoid QRM).
- De KA5TJS: Band was very QSB but good copy and both stations. Did not hang around for a QSY as it was breakfast time and upper band above 20 had been bad this morning.

- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz, nothing heard. 17m: CN8YR was calling CQ SSN, but faded out. I _think_ he heard me call, but I'm not sure. F5LAW, fading out after a few minutes.
- De F5LAW: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz: Nothing heard, local noise. 17m: No path to NCS, lost AA7FV in QSB at end.

20 m: 1500 - 1537 UTC, 14349 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: Mixed conditions today. Contest QRM on 14055 kHz, so went to 14349 kHz. F5LAW and K3CKT faded out by 1520 UTC. Initially I was using 95 watts, but QRO to kW at end, when signals were disappearing.
- De KA5TJS: Very QSB again today, Got 90% of Yann and Steve. Darrel and Jim were Q5 copy through out. Band was quiet here. CW contest covered up lower portion of the band.
- De F5LAW: Thanks to AA7FV for all QSPs. Extremely deep QSB at end, lost all stations.
- De G4CPA: Nil SSN all QRGs.

- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC: Nothing heard on 21055 kHz. 17m: Both Med and Jim were solid signals with me, albeit with QSB. However, Med and Jim both only gave each other RST 119. No other stations heard.
- De F5LAW: 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz: NIL. 17m: NIL at first, then at 1618Z, K3CKT at 329 giving report to CN8YR, other signals at 119. I didn't call.

20 m: 1500 - 1525 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: AA7FV unavailable (RX only) and NIL from K3CKT so I tried some CQ SSN. Heard very weak signals from KA5TJS and a W? station but no copy. 15m: NIL. 17m: Just heard some faint signals at 119 at times, no copy at all. From the group: Get well soon Darrel!
- De KA5TJS: I did not hear any other stations. Thunder storms again in the area!
- De AA7FV: I just listened using an indoor antenna (a tuned 2-ft whip) on my FT857D. I also listened at 1600 UTC on 18088 kHz, but nothing heard.
- De CN8YR: 1600 - 1604 UTC 21055 kHz; 1605 - 1610 UTC 18088 kHz: No slightest signal on the 2 bands. We miss Darrel's Rhombic. Quick recovery dear Darrel, take care.

Nothing heard. 1605 UTC 18088 kHz. Put out CQ SSN, but no replies heard. 1615 UTC heard K3CKT calling CQ SSN, 339, then faded out. I tried calling Jim, but no reply heard.

20 m: 1500 - 1530 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De CN8YR: Again sorry not providing you company. I have an issue with my tuner with an infinite SWR.
- De F5LAW: 1600 - 1603 UTC, 21055 kHz and 1603 - 1610 UTC, 18088 kHz. NIL heard, I didn't call.
- De AA7FV: I think these were the worst conditions I've yet experienced on this Intercontinental net, although the long-standing pipeline between IL and AZ on 20m does seem still to be working. I could hear a weak signal at 119, but could not copy any characters. I'm guessing that my weak signal heard was Yann. 1600 UTC, 21055 kHz: Nothing heard. 1605 UTC, 18088 kHz: I just caught some snatches of "CQ SSN" in the noise, but could not catch any call. Probably Jim; K3CKT 219. Put out a few CQ SSN calls myself, but no replies.

20 m: 1500 - 1535 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: K3CKT faded into the noise at 1530 UTC. No signals heard from outside the USA. Intra-USA signals were mostly marginal, although to and from Arizona was not too bad.
- De KA5TJS: Darrel was strong thru the hole net and good copy on Jim. Pete is a little to close to me and did not hear TJ at all.
- De F5LAW: RX report, I didn't call, rough copy, tuner QRM at end. K3CKT: best signal around 1520Z. Heard Jim QNF net at 1535Z.

20 m: 1500 - 1530 UTC, 14055.3 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 14055.3 kHz (There was QRM on 14055.0): K3CKT was calling CQ SSN, Jim couldn't hear my calls.
- De F5LAW: 14055 kHz QRL, heard AA7FV calling K3CKT on 55.3. K3CKT and K9TJL NIL here, strange conditions.
- De CN8YR: 20m: Heard only F6HKA IN QSOs. Nil from SSN stns.

20 m: 1500 - 1530 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: QRO to kW while talking to K3CKT (QSB down to 119 at end) on 20m. 1600 UTC 21055 kHz: Nothing heard. 1605 - 1620 UTC 18088 kHz: K9TJL peaked at 329 calling CQ SSN, but faded down completely into the noise. Tried CQ SSN, but no replies heard. I checked RBN for any reports on aa7fv's calls during SSN this morning. On 20m, just a selection of continental USA stations. On 17m, just two reports on RBN, close to each other from the far side of the USA: More than averagely poor conditions!
- De F5LAW: 1500 - 1515 UTC, 14055 kHz: No SSN stations heard. 1600 - 1610 UTC, 21055 kHz and 18088 kHz: NIL.
- De CN8YR: Unavailable.
