Conditions and signals were reasonable around UK. Vernon reported that there was no VK/ZL activity on the earlier HF nets but managed some G/F contacts. A good net covering radio activity and Rotary matters as meeting venues emerge from lockdown. Brian later emailed to say that preparations were well in hand for his QTH move
