30 m: 0929 - 0939 UTC, 10121 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0859 - 0905 UTC 14055.0 kHz: No reply was heard. 30m: VK5GG was heard at 0933 UTC. I sent him RST 229 but no reply. I heard VK2BJ and VK5CZ on 10109kHz at 0913 UTC. I thought 30m was better. But it was not good enough.

30 m: 0930 - 0940 UTC, 10121 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0900 - 0909 UTC 14055.0 kHz: I was not sure. I heard two stations on this frequency. One was responding to my CQ. The other was calling CQ SSN and I could copy a part of his callsign. It was BX6. I continued to monitor this frequency until at 0909utc but couldn't copy their callsigns. 30m: I heard VK5GG at 0934 UTC and sent him RST 229 but couldn't hear his response. No other was heard to my CQ SSN. Both bands were very quiet. The band condx was still poor.
- De BX6ABC: The BX6 is me, because I hear a very weak CW, I think is that you, so I sent SSN DE BX6ABC. Wish everybody have great new year!

Sunday, January 19, 2020.

No net:
- De JL1MUT: 0859 - 0905 UTC 14055.0 kHz; 0929 - 0935 UTC 10121.0 kHz: No reply was heard for my CQ SSN.
I made QSO with VK2BJ at RST449 on both way on 30m just before 30m Net. The propagation to VK existed on 30m tonight.
Unfortunately VK5GG, Graeme San was unavailable tonight. He informed me of it this afternoon. He may be unavailable next week.
- De F5LAW: 20m: QSX via 9V1RM webSDR. NIL.
30m: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. Good signal from JL1MUT, some QSB, QRN 3.

- De JL1MUT: 0900 - 0905 UTC 14055.0 kHz; 0930 - 0935 UTC 10121.0 kHz: No reply was heard for my CQ SSN.
Both bands were very quiet here but alive. My working conditions was 100 watts output and inverted Vee dipoles.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR on both bands. 20m: JL1MUT: Weak signal with deep QSB, QRN 3. 30m: JL1MUT: Good signal, fast QSB, some SSB QRM in background, QRN 4.

20 m: 0859 - 0913 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0900 - 0906 UTC: VK5GG; 0906 - 0911 UTC: VK5BUG; 0911 - 0913 UTC: No reply for my CQ SSN. It was great to hear VK5BUG after a long time.
- De VK5BUG: Very nice to work Yo San again after so long: My first SSN QSO on 20m! First time on an SSN since 2017 I think: 30m band back then. Station: 20W, HB Cootie & half wave vertical over 60 radials.
- De F5LAW: QSX via 9V1RM and KFS webSDRs, ZMH292 unavailable: NIL.

Notes:

- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR: Very good signals from both stations, slight QSB, less QRM and QRN than usual, UFB.

20 m: 0900 - 0914 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0900 - 0910 UTC: VK5BUG. 0910 - 0914 UTC: No reply was heard for my CQ SSN. I am very sorry not to hear VK5GG on 20m. The band conditions were better last week. I copied VK5GG and VK5BUG on 20m, and VK5GG on 30m.
- De VK5BUG: JL1MUT NCS RST 229 on my half wave vertical txing antenna; RST 449 on both my rxing antennae: 3/2-Lambda horizontal rxing loop @ 7ft above ground, and 6x6ft 2-turn vertical rxing Frame Loop @ 11ft above ground. I only finished the knife switch/coax switch wiring this morning, so this was the first live test for the two rxing loops. I am pleased with the outcome & hope to refine them further, with 20m now my band-of-focus.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. QSB, QRN 4. NCS was QRK 5 throughout, rough copy on both VK5 stations.

30 m: 0930 - 0944 UTC, 10121 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0930 - 0934 UTC, 14055.0 kHz: No reply was heard for my CQ. The band conditions were too poor on both bands. 30m: I heard VK5GG, Graeme San at 0934utc for a short time. I couldn't hear his reply.
- De VK4BGR: Nil heard of JL1MUT on 14055 – only VK5GG he was a good 559 on VK4 Remote. 30m: I cud hear both stns but neither of u cud cpi me!! My VK4 Remote batteries are down as we had a long week of cloud and no wind.
- De F5LAW: 20m: QSX via VK5ADE webSDR, ZMH292 unavailable. JL1MUT, extremely weak signal, another very weak station but no C/S copied. 30m: QSX via Marahau, NZ, webSDR, ZMH292 unavailable. Conditions: Fair, slight QSB, no QRN/QRM. JL1MUT, weak, QSB; VK4BGR, good; VK5GG, strong.

20 m: 0900 - 0917 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: 0900 - 0914 UTC: VK4BGR, remote controlled in VK6, was readable in spite of low power output, 20 watts and a mobile whip antenna. 0914 - 0917 UTC: No reply was heard for my CQ. 0930 - 0935 UTC, 10121.0 kHz: No reply was heard for my CQ.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR on both bands. 20m: Deep QSB, QRN 3. JL1MUT: very good signal, deep QSB at end. VK4BGR: part copy, deep QSB. 30m: JL1MUT: good signal again, some QSB.

20 m: 0900 - 0924 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: It was very great to hear VK2IOW, Pat San after a long time. His last QNI was done on Feb. 19th 2019. He is using his home brew 4 ele yagi with 400 watts output power just like before. He was sending booming signals. And VK4BGR, George San tried. He heard me initially but my signals dropped down according to his e-mail to me.
- De F5LAW: QSX via 9V1RM webSDR. NCS: NIL or extremely weak at times, no copy at all. VK2IOW: Good signal but fast and deep QSB.

30 m: 0928 - 0946 UTC, 10121 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: I had to say 73 to Pat San earlier because he was fading out mostly soon. George San was 50 watts to an inverted Vee. His battery was charged enough because of sunny WX. 50 watts output power helped me to hear him.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. Some QSB and SSB QRM. Strong signals from NCS and VK2IOW, solid copy. VK4BGR weaker, QSB, part copy.

20 m: 0900 - 0920 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: It was very nice to hear Pat San again. He was very solid on 20m as usual. His 400 watts and HB 4el yagi was booming.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. Excellent signals from both stations.

30 m: 0930 - 0943 UTC, 10121 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: It was very difficult to keep Pat San because of QSB. 30m Net was closed earlier. I tried CQ SSN twice after QSO with him. No reply was heard.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. Again excellent signals from both stations.

Sunday, March 15, 2020.

No net:
- De JL1MUT: Unfortunately no reply was heard for my CQ SSN on the following frequencies:
14055.0 kHz at 0900 - 0905 UTC;
10121.0 kHz at 0930 - 0935 UTC.
- De F5LAW: On both bands QSX via ZMH292 webSDR. Excellent conditions. Good/strong signals from JL1MUT. Lots of CQ SSN, no takers.

 

Sunday, March 22, 2020.

20 m: 0900 - 0907 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: One VK station was heard. It was very weak. I put out QRZ? a few times. I couldn't copy his callsign finally. No other was heard. 0929 - 0934 UTC 10121.0 kHz: No reply was heard.
- De VK5BUG: Hello Yo San & thanks for NCS duties again. Due to local noise plus the contest in full swing, my half wave vertical did not do your signals any favours! However both my vertical frame loop and large low horizontal loop brought you in at RST 339. I was running 50W TS-430S. Contest QRM from ZL1T & RW0A plus others made life difficult, but we got you!

Sunday, March 29, 2020.

20 m: 0900 - 0911 UTC, 14055 kHz.

Notes:
- De JL1MUT: It was very great to hear YC1JCD, Edy San after a while. He was initially readable, RST 549. But I couldn't copy him well on his next transmission, RST 339 for QSB. I lost him finally. I think that he was fading out. I am very sorry on VK5GG, Graeme San. I didn't hear him. 0930 - 0934 UTC 10121.0 kHz: No reply was heard.
- De F5LAW: QSX via ZMH292 webSDR on both bands. 20m: No path to Japan, good/strong signals from YC1JCD and VK5GG. 30m: QSB and QRN. JL1MUT: Weak signal/QSB, lots of CQ SSN calls, no takers.
- De VK5BUG: Unavailable.
