Conditions were poor with QRM and QSB evident. It was good to have Peter join the net and to hear about his Rotary and Ham Radio activities. So, again an interesting net, including Vernon reporting on his earlier 20m activity including contact with Bill VK4ZD, and others discussing ZOOM security. Some members planned to join the N4EDT ZOOM gathering later.
