Conditions were OK and the band reasonably quiet for most. It was good to have Mike join us after some time and interesting to hear an update from him. Vernon reported some success on the earlier 20m net and on last week's interesting ZOOM meeting. Another good net with some interesting discussion too on modern hearing aids!
