Thanks to Peter, VK3PRC, here is a chart showing the numbers of participants in our nets in recent times.

Even with noise on the frequency, 80m signals are excellent.

While 80m is generally regarded as a good band for local contacts, we’ve often had Peter, VK3RV, joining when in VK5 and we’ve had a report that some stations can be heard on an indoor loop in Sydney.

There are notes for net controllers.
