Following further testing today by a handful of members, the evidence is fairly conclusive that two-way communications are far easier on the 40m band than the 80m band right now, and so the Sunday morning HF net will switch to 7.085MHz starting this weekend. We'll continue to monitor the situation, but the change will remain in place until further notice.

Please note that this means that the Wednesday 40m net will NOT become a permanent fixture and will cease immediately.

Ken commented that Sean, Gerry, Phil, and Mervyn enjoyed the relatively good operating conditions this morning, with Sean at 5/8 rather than being unreadable on 80m. It will be intriguing to see what other MSARS members make of it on Sunday. Sean did comment that after a year on 80m in 1977, the net temporarily migrated to 40m for similar reasons, and It will be interesting to see how many MSARS members manage to make the band change on Sunday morning.
