From Douglas ZL1BFS
I was on the Roar Zoom this morning, and we all had a chance to say what we had been doing.
I explained that it was too early for the VKs to come on to Zoom, and a bit later one of them said I should get onto you, Phil.
You can’t easily put up aerials and come onto the HF Nets, but even in the early hours of the day your computer should be working.
(Don’t shoot the messenger).
There were very few of our ANZO crowd on this morning. Only Nick Wilkinson and Dave ZL2WT.
I greeted them and made reference to Jean-Pierre who was on last week, and who was the only European we had been able to work in recent months. But very late in the piece Vernon appeared. it was great to see him in the flesh (so to speak).
