40 m: Friday, 0000 - 0030 UTC, 7046 kHz.

Notes:
- De N6SL: The Heard Island DX group had RTTY on about 7043.5 KHz and asked me to QSY to reduce QRM. First tried 7043 - still had complaints, then up to 7046 for net.
- De K9TJL: Good to have Ben at the Helm tonight.
- De AA7FV: Bad QRM on all stations, some closely zero beat with our net. The final choice of frequency offset was best.

Notes:
- De N6SL: Shifted to 10.121.5 MHz at 8:25 PM; 10.121.5 had heavy QRM from split operation US Nat. Parks.
Shifted 10.115 MHz at 8:28 PM; No signals heard; Secured at 8:35 PM.
NB: Next week will use 10.115 as alternate frequency if QRM on 10.121.5.
- DE AA7FV: QSY to 30m, but our frequency was in the middle of an on-going pileup, spreading up and down the band by a few kHz.
Couldn't hear any SSN stations below the many S9 stations on frequency.

- De AA7FV: Interestingly, reports from me on both bands were very similar, but it was easier copy on 30m because of the lower QRN level.
Temperature in Arizona 101 degs F outside during the net.

30 m: Friday, 0022 - 0039 UTC, 10121.5 kHz.

Note de AA7FV: All stations were STRONGER on the rhombic than on the vertical, but UNREADABLE on the rhombic because of the much stronger QRN. All stations were quite readable (469) on the omnidirectional receive-only antenna, even though weaker. The direction of the QRN from here must have been well lined up with the rhombic main beam.

- De AA7FV: Unfortunately a lightning storm came in right before the start of the net, so after a quick QSO with TJ, for safety I disconnected and grounded the rhombic antenna. However, I kept listening on the active 4-foot RX-only antenna.

Thanksgiving.
N. T. R.
Just as stated above, this is a National Holiday, so most swiper operators are AWOL But we promise not to take action as such. I did have the watch tonight however I will submit a holiday pay request. All heard was the magic of HF (white noise). See you all next week, and trust all is well.
Oh, I am still hungry ( no swiper action, guess I need to go to the Pub as I will be receiving additional Holiday pay for some 807s (pint).. across the pond.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: End of 80 meter session Darrel had big signal. Wish Steve and Jerry would of QSY down to 80 as we should of been all able to work each other. I feel we will get more check ins as the bands improve.
