OM came on at 1115 saying good morning, and that the net starts at 7 o'clock on 4030, then they move to 6230 at 15 past the hour.  He then gave a summary of checkins from the 4030 net, which I missed, but now know about  ;D

Took checkins to the net, with a summary of their plans. Generally good signals, net control did complain of some interference on the frequency, probably from the Australian weather station, which I heard before the net started.

Interesting note on the 4030 kHz USB frequency before switching up to 6230 kHz USB.  They might have a 8 MHz frequency as well.  I know I've heard Caribbean yachtman's nets / cruising nets on 4003 kHz USB too, similar format and content to the various 6 MHz and 8 MHz yacht and sailing nets, so perhaps 4003 kHz USB is the 4 MHz frequency for another one of these nets.

I heard the 4030 net this morning (30 Jul 2019) from 1100 UTC, that closed down around 1112 UTC.

6230 started up at 1115 UTC. I believe he gave a QTH of Bar Harbor Maine. Complained of electrical noise on 4030 earlier.
