40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0135 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Not to bad of a session on the bands tonight folks. We welcome back Jerry/Ken as we haven't hrd them in a while welcome guys. One drive by on 40M W0ECS after QNF. I think he was looking for Steve.
- De AA7FV: Power at first 95 watts, switching to kW later during the nets. After 40m QNF, W0ECS 569 calling Steve. A little more QRN on 80m than on 40m, but both bands were equally good tonight. A good net night. Sorry I lost KN2G.
- De AC8LJ: Listening in on both 40m & 80m this evening - the only station I could hear well on both bands was Darrel (599 on 40m, 569 on 80m). Couldn't hear TJ at all on either band...

40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0135 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Welcome to Allen KA5TJS. Allen has just been using the swiper for 4 months, and he is sending very well. He said he had tried to check in last week, but poor cndx prevented him from doing so. I have a feeling we will be seeing more of Allen in the days to come.
- De AA7FV: Conditions excellent tonight on both bands. Good to QSO everyone. Nice to hear Allen for first time on the net. Great Cootie sending.

- De AA7FV: Conditions were quite good as heard in Arizona. Good to work Rob and Allen for the first time.

Thursday, February 9, 2017.

40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0135 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: N9KX NIL (You were checked in by relay from Darrel). Rob I knew I would not prob copy your signal as we are too close on 40 Meters at this hour. All in all good net, good tunes.
- De AA7FV: Rob, that's amazing. You were 579 on 40m here with your 2 or 3 watts, so if you'd had the rig up to 100 watts you'd have been a good 599 in AZ. A good net night.
- De N9KX: No copy on NCS here (7044). TKS for relay AA7FV Darrel! Running 2 or 3 Watts on 40m; I turned the rig back to 100 Watts on 80m.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Big party tonight both 40/80 Meters. Many thanks folks for dropping by for this evening event. Enjoyed staying busy taking check ins. That's what we like.
- De AA7FV: A great net. Good conditions on both bands, in spite of some QSB. I wish conditions were always so good as tonight.

40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0126 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Warm weather, brought out another good evening of music and sounds. I would welcome KB3VQU Cliff in the great state of Delaware tonight. Prior today I had invited Cliff and his swiper to attend one of our picking and a grinning fest. He show up. Great job all. Cliff loves his swiper, so I look forward and love to hear his swiper again on SSN.
- De AA7FV: As heard from southern Arizona, conditions were excellent on both bands. Good net on both bands. Thanks all.

Thursday, March 2, 2017.

40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0140 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Nice turn out again this session. In case you wondering why I sent so fast tonight on net preamble, when I have six or more check in-s, I have to speed the net up as there are people whom check in and are on limited time thus I am pushing a lil in order we get done in thirty minutes or so. Jim K3CKT QNI but was weak, Antenna problems.
- De N9KX: On 40m no copy on TJ (or others -- thanks Steve & Darrel for relay).
- De AA7FV: A great net night. Conditions slightly better on 40m than 80m, but both bands were good. Pity conditions didn't let me copy Jim better on 40m.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: Reports not too bad. Looks like spring QRN arrived. All in all not bad. It's HF fellows.
- De AA7FV: 40m: The short vertical gave less static, and better rx s/n than the rhombic. 30m was the best band for Arizona tonight. 80m was hopeless.

40 m: Friday, 0000 - 0015 UTC, 7045 kHz.

Notes:
- De K9TJL: T-storms in midwest heavy QRN.
- De N9KX: I was able to hear TJ tonight on 40m, but QSB and QRN made it difficult. I looked for the group on 80m afterwards, but I now see I should have checked 30m instead -- I look forward to trying 30m next Thursday but will probably require a relay since TJ and I are so close.
- De AA7FV: I arrived too late for the 40m session. Many apologies.

Notes:
- De KA5TJS: The only one I could hear last night was TJ. I could just hear W1SFR and KB3VQU but not good enough for a QSO.
- De AA7FV: Rhombic antenna + short active 4-foot vertical on receive. On both bands, on most signals the short active vertical increased readability by 1 unit, but decreased signal strength by 1 S-point, compared to the rhombic. The vertical seems to be less sensitive to the QRN. A good net, but terrible receive conditions in Arizona because of distant storm QRN.

- De K9TJL: 7044 kHz at net time QRM. Sig. flutter/echo, seems flare of some sort.
- De AA7FV: 0000 UTC 7044 kHz. No SSN heard, until (0010 UTC) TJ came on freq to tell me the net had started up 1 kHz, because of QRM. On both bands, very rapid and very deep flutter QSB on all signals. Even though signals were relatively strong, the flutter made copying CW difficult. I've never heard such flutter on 40m before, although it sounded like the auroral flutter I've heard sometimes on 20m. I presume this is because of the solar outburst that was announced for this week by the Space Weather folks. Very strange.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: Today was a good day for me. I've been suffering from power line QRN for the last 6 months. This had been giving me an S7 - S8 noise level on 20m and 17m, although the RX noise blanker can cut it down a lot. Unfortunately my rhombic is beaming right at the source of noise. After many complaints from me, this afternoon the power company came and fixed the problem within 5 minutes. It was some arcing to the ground wire at the top of a 14 kV power pole, about a quarter-mile from me. Now cured!
- De KA5TJS: Steve was a nil and came up at the end. Also TJ came up to 10 over at the last. Pete is to close to me.

No net.
- De K9TJL: 7044 kHz, 0100z - 0115z: No check ins. 3568 kHz, 0115z - 0130z: No check ins.
- De AA7FV: Very sorry, I'll miss this evening's net. The local radio club is meeting again, at exactly that time. However, I do wish all SSN participants a Very Happy Christmas, and I look forward to seeing all you after Christmas, if not before on the Intercontinental SSN.
- De W1SFR: Never heard the bands so bad as the last couple of days. Hell, I went out to check my antenna to see if it was still up, HiHi. Hope it's better next week. Happy holidays folks if I don't get a chance to hear you on the radio.

 

Thursday, December 28, 2017.

40 m: Friday, 0100 - 0120 UTC, 7044 kHz.

Notes:
- De AA7FV: Started at 95 watts on both bands, then QRO to kW (...) In case I don't see you in the Intercontinental Net on Sunday, a very Happy New Year everyone.
- De W1SFR: 40 has been a hot mess lately. If I put my best QRP RX hat on, I could hear TJ very faintly... maybe 50% copy but the QSB and QRN were pretty substantial. Fair copy from Darrel on 40 and much better on 80. TJ Nil on 80 so thanks for the QSP Darrel. HNY to you all and I'll see you on the flip side.
- De F5LAW: Very poor conditions, I didn't call, just RX. Surprisingly, path to AZ wasn't so bad, almost solid copy on AA7FV at times.
- De KA5TJS: I did not try this week but the bands have been crazy here lately. Hope to hear you guys on Sunday but it will be very cold here.
