Good Morning Bill
A good turn up for this week’s net the wintry weather perhaps keeping members from other tasks! Present were Doug ZL1BFS/P/1 operating portable from New Plymouth, Reg VK7KK, Bill VK4ZD, Diane VK4KYL, Peter VK3FPSR and myself. Reasonable propagation allowed for good exchanges between those present. Phil VK2FPDB tendered apology.
