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?
