Sunday, January 5, 2020.

20 m: 1500 - 1536 UTC, 14055.15 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 1500 UTC 14055.150 kHz. (QRM on 14055). Ionospheric conditions to AZ were very good this morning, but with that came a lot of QRM. I believe at least one other SSN was calling, but I missed the call because of QRM. Apologies. Thanks everyone for the first Intercontinental SSN of the year, and I hope conditions stay good.
- De F5LAW: Super path to AZ but strange conditions, signals from S-IL weaker than usual and no short skip at all. First Intercontinental net of 2020, HNY to you and yours friends.
- De K9TJL: Yes strange cndx. End of net the bottom dropped out. FDZ. During net heard Eur. stations calling on 055. Assumed they were attempting comms with AA7FV.
- De DL2KHU: Darrel, the station that was calling you when you pass the key to K9TJL was IK7XJA.

- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC 21055 kHz nothing heard. 17m: CN8YR calling CQ SSN at RST 229 on peaks. Med was being called by many USA stations.

20 m: 1500 - 1528 UTC, 14055.25 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 14055.250 kHz (QRM on 14055 kHz). Conditions were down compared to last week. In spite of occasional NCS confusion, a great net.
- De KA5TJS: I was their but no one heard me.
- De G4CPA: I could only hr Darrel AA7FV. I called like crazy ,,,,nil response. No others hrd, I checked all SSN QRGs. The contest didn't help.

- De F5LAW: 15m: NIL. 17m: Short QSO with Med but QSB got us. No other stations heard.
- De AA7FV: 0100 UTC 21055 kHz nothing heard. 17m: I tried calling Med, but not sure if he heard me. From a peak of 219, Med faded into the noise. Al called Med, but I don't think was heard. Med was also called by a non-SSN station, but I didn't get the call.

Sunday, January 19, 2020.

20 m: 1500 - 1528 UTC, 14055.1 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 20m: 14055.1 kHz. (14054.9 was busy.) Things were very busy, with some stations doubling and other QRM. Apologies to any stations that may have been calling the net that I didn't copy. Ionospheric conditions were very good today, but that made QRM all the stronger.
15/17m: 1600 UTC listened on 21055 kHz, but nothing heard. 1605 UTC 18088 kHz, nothing heard. Tried a CQ SSN, but nil. I could only hear one station anywhere on the band, who turned out to be in Arizona.
- De F5LAW: Strange conditions on 20m; NIL on 15/17m.
- De DL2KHU: At the beginning i copied Darrel AA7FV with 559 in the peak and tried to check in. Then the signals became vy week, mostly 229... I heard vy week signals from other stations but could not copy a callsign.
- De G4CPA: Condx vy bd hr, deep QSB making vy difficult copy. I only mngd to work AA7FV Darrel he was RST 339, 15.15 UTC lost my rprt in QSB, Sry no other stns hrd.
- De CN8YR: 1600 - 1603 UTC 21055 kHz; 1603 - 1610 UTC 18088 kHz: Nil.

Sunday, January 26, 2020.

20 m: 1500 - 1531 UTC, 14055.2 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 14055.2 kHz (Weak QRM on 14055). 95 watts at first, QRO to kW halfway through net.
- De F5LAW: NCS was S5 on peaks at first, S8 on peaks later with QRO. Noise level was S3 at 300 Hz. 15/17m bands both dead here.
- De G4CPA: Condx vy poor hr in North Yorkshire, Sri couldn't hear N4OW, K9TJL and F5LAW, I only managed to work Darrel AA7FV at 15.15 UTC. Nothing hrd on other SSN QRG's.
- De N4OW: Extremely poor conditions at my QTH for this session. (I checked to see if my antenna had fallen down). AA7FV (Low Power) 229 in my noise - QRO 559.
- De N1EA: N4OW was blasting in here. Also TJ very strong, AA7FV very strong, F5LAW was 449. One person (now I know it must have been N4OW) said conditions were poor but I've not seen them this good for quite a while. Receiver ITT/Mackay 3030 with indoor loop. Usually hears nothing, like it heard nothing on 18088 kHz at 1600Z today.
- De KA5TJS: I was there but did not hear a thing on 14.055! Conditions really bad here. I think I did hear Al one time about 119 but don't know if he heard me or not.

- De N4OW: Very happy to check in on 17 net with CN8YR for first QNI.
- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC 21055 kHz. Nothing heard. 17m: CN8YR peaked to RST 429 in AZ at 1620 UTC just for a few seconds. Otherwise, nothing heard from Med in AZ. Med didn't hear my brief call. Poor conditions today, but great to work Al on 17m.

Sunday, February 2, 2020.

20 m: 1500 - 1536 UTC, 14054.6 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 14054.6 kHz (14055 kHz busy). 95 watts, then later QRO to kW. I believe at least one other station was calling the net, but too weak for me to copy. My apologies. Very long skip conditions this morning. Signals from Europe were very good, but US stations were very hard to copy in AZ. Thanks, Yann for the QSPs and for picking up the stations I missed.
- De F5LAW: NCS was S7 at first, S9 later with QRO. Very annoying QRM from a station tuning up on QRG. I think I heard another station calling, not sure if for SSN, I didn't get the call sign. 15m: NIL. 17m: NIL. Pile up on QRG with good signals from North America.
- De N4OW: AA7FV 229 QRO 569.
- De KA5TJS: Very poor conditions here on Sunday, could hear Yann better than Darrel at most times.
- De G4CPA: I Only mngd to hr/wk Darrel AA7FV. No other SSN stns hrd I checked the other QRG's but nothing hrd.
- De CN8YR: Unavailable.

Sunday, February 9, 2020.

20 m: 1500 - 1532 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 95 watts at first, QRO to kW near end of net. I think conditions were relatively poor today, although we've had worse. Most stations were copied well into Arizona, but were not being heard well with most of the net. 1600 - 1610 UTC, I did listen on 15m and 17m, just in case anybody came up. No SSN stations heard.
- De K9TJL: No stations heard 15/17 Meters 02092020.
- De F5LAW: Band noisy, very strong wind with storm Ciara. NCS was S5 on peaks at first, good S8 later with QRO. 15m: NIL. 17m: NIL. Pileup on QRG again... Med being unavailable, I tried a few CQ SSN, nothing heard.
- De G4CPA: Well condx atrocious here, in middle of storm from hell "Ciaran" 80mph gusts, trees down and villages around here flooded out, lots of QRN QRM & QSB. The first stn I hrd was F5LAW Yann, then vanished, then heard Darrel, also disappeared and lots of QRM.
- De CN8YR: Unavailable.

20 m: 1500 - 1523 UTC, 14349 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: 14349 kHz. (Contest QRM on 14055). Started at 95 watts, then QRO to kW. A good net.
- De G4CPA: Sri nil cpi on Yann F5LAW and TJ, K9TJL. Very active contest today on other QRG's. Nothing hrd on other SSN QRG's. Big storm Dennis passed through overnight. Lots of local flooding damage etc. but we escaped it.
- De K9TJL: Net held on Alt QRG 14349 kHz. Due to DX Contest. Sorry Nil F5LAW/G4CPA.
- De F5LAW: Big storm for the third time this week: Ciara, Inès, now Dennis. Storm in progress during net, very impressive and scary. NCS' signal was S5 on peaks at first, up to S9 with QRO.
- De KA5TJS: I was their but no one could hear me. Darrel was not moving the S meter but I could copy him. Oh well, maybe next week.
- De W1SFR: Unavailable.

Notes:
- De CN8YR: Didn't try 15m cos contest. 17m: We both didn't hear any SSN STN.
- De F5LAW: NIL on 15m. 17m: Med, excellent signal with 50W into your H/B vertical, UFB! We both tried some CQ SSN calls, no takers.
- De AA7FV: 1600 UTC 21055 kHz Nothing heard. 1612 UTC 18088 kHz Caught an isolated "CN8..." coming out of the noise. I'm sure that must have been Med. I tried a call but not surprisingly no response that I could hear.
