Mike Sanders G8LES with his professional
video camera recording the proceedings.
Apologies received from Tony G4FTA who
although unwell was able to run the morning
80-metre net from his home,
also apologies from John G2CJL not quite
well enough to make it, and from Tommy
G2FUU who did not
feel able to drive the distance to Matlock.
We hope to hold the AGM at Mildenhall next
year Tommy so no excuses !

not have to hand.
