Notes:
- De PA3BYW: Hvy QRM fm SP stns so QSY'd 1 dwn. After QNF I had a short QSO with Bill G0JWB who was listening to the net. But conds bad, so didn't call earlier. Bill used a sideswiper and a bug.

Sunday, January 20, 2019.

80 m: 2000 - 2116 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Hard going at first, poor path to PA and G, but conditions gradually improved. Short QNI list but nice session.
- De M0HTE: Not much doing on SSN this Sunday. I heard F6EEQ, Gerard 559 and Martin G4ZXN 229 and I think I heard Durk PA3BYW just breaking through but gave up trying to call in (I even went up the garden to check that my antenna had not come down!) I moved up to 40m and had a couple of QSO's but condx were pretty quiet...

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Crazy conditions again, no path to the UK.

Sunday, February 3, 2019.

80 m: 2000 - 2116 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Strange conditions again, hard going on round 3. Very nice to have Al - DC5GD back in the gang. Deep QSB on all stations, except OE8GBK, strong and steady in spite of antenna covered in snow.
- De DC5GD: Challenging session again this time. Strong QSB with sigs from nil to 589 and vice versa. First 2 rounds ok for me, lost contact to all but Yann during 3rd round.

Sunday, February 10, 2019.

80 m: 2000 - 2109 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De DC5GD: I heard Durk tuning his PA and the first contact was UUUFB, really: Like he was sitting next to me. But like all other stns he had strong QSB with sigs going down to nil and coming up strong again. I did not hear any GB station all the time but seems at least John M0HTE was there. Sri! First 2 rounds ok for me, lost contact to all of you during 3rd round (same as last SSN) and stopped listening after I could not hear any sig for 10 minutes.
- De F5LAW: Absolutely awful conditions over here. Good path to Germany, DC5GD stronger than usual, DJ3TU booming in with 60W/MLA. Lost most stations in QSB/noise.
- De M0HTE: Poor conditions, all stations faded out during round 3.
- De F6EEQ: Unavailable.

80 m: 2000 - 2137 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Super session with smashing signals from all participants, slight QSB, no QRM/QRN. What a difference with last week's EU SSN. Very nice to have Brian - G4CJY and Jose - EA7HAA with us. Al - DC5GD had to go QRT.
- De EA7HAA: I am very glad for having taken part in the Net. Now I have got antenna for 80... These are the STNs were CPD by me, I had to leave you before finish. SRI.

Notes:

ON6WJ, 2019/05/12. Homebrew 1-V-3 regenerative RX, click to enlarge picture - De ON6WJ: A - (for first reports I needed S-meter): TS590SG power 70 Watts into G5RV, key: Maniflex copy (made in Mildam). B - from my second tour to the end of session: only TX part of TS590SG + new build 1-V-3 regen RX's "maiden trip"... no Icebergs neither no smoke ;-). All signals QRK 5/5, even M0HTE's signals this time: loud & clear or 599 by ear.
- De M0HTE: Sorry to arrive on air late. QRL most of yesterday hi.

Kees - PA3DEB (SK) was with us, Durk was using Kees' gears: The "Old Lady", his TS-830S + Annecke ATU and his homebrew PCB cootie key. Great to hear Jan - ON4ASZ again at very end.

Sunday, June 23, 2019.

80 m: 1900 - 2121 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De PA3BYW: poor conditions boys. But most was heard QRK5 (except for John/ M0HTE) on yesterday's EU-SSN.
- De F5LAW: Strange conditions again, some bad QSB and very poor path to Friesland but QRK 5 on all stations. Smashing signal from Nigel - G0IIK.
- De ON6WJ: since the noisy 80m summer condx are back, I switched to my trusty K2 as receiver for the most simple explanation: the RATIO of "signal to noise" coming out the speaker/phones is much pleasant to listen than with TS590SG or IC7300 or KX3 clone (mcHF).
- De F6EEQ: Tried to check in SSN last night, but our propagation gods were not in a mood! I barely heard Durk and Martin. Yann was OK, but with QSB, and I gave up quickly. Summer time is not favourable to 80m!

Sorry I couldn't join the fun last Sunday. We were in a German house in the valley of the river Gutach in the Black Forrest. I tried a short 2x6 mtr dipole on the balcony there but much too short for a nice SSN QSO. So listened for a while on a portable radio. Hrd: F5LAW Yann, PA5V Bob, OE8GBK Fried. Yesterday we moved to a small town near Trier (abt 50km east of Trier). Nice place. Here I've setup a 10m vertical with a coil at 5m. Using 2 short counterpoises. Seems to work ok on 80m. I try to be QRV evenings around 20.00-21.00 LT.

Sunday, July 28, 2019.

80 m: 1900 - 2039 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De DC5GD: very strange this time again. QSB up to nil with all (including Durk, PA3BYW) stations. The sigs went up to 9++ and seconds later nil. Not caused by my equipment but strange conditions. Perhaps the army was performing a training in their camp near by (neighborhood, sight contact). Nearly no signals from GB stations to be heard here unfortunately, but up to 9+20 for some letters / words. Also Yann, F5LAW I heard only in round 2 and 3. MNI TKS to Durk, PA3BYW for the excellent QSP job. I was lost after round 3...
- De F5LAW: Great session and no local noise here so QRK 5 on all stations. Very pleased to have Al back with us and maestro Durk à la baguette.

80 m: 1900 - 2014 UTC, 3566 kHz.

Notes:
- De F5LAW: Very nice session, although somewhat fragmented. No path between DC5GD/P and M0HTE; PA3BYW had to go QRT before round 1 (phone call); PA5V QNI 1950 UTC with very strong signal as usual.
- De DC5GD: Again a strange session. Strong QSB and a QRQ-station some kHz below 3.566 MHz. I could copy as long as he was not sending but my imagination was that he just was looking for contacts ("r r = 599 tu bb" and next station). Send several times QRL to him but no reaction. Perhaps he could not hear me. I was lost after round 2 when I could only copy some letters or in best case single words.
