Good morning
I had a very enjoyable chat with Bill on Peanut today. 20m was not in our favour. I was calling out then a Russian station decided he wanted the frequency, he did not ask if it was occupied and that was the end of 14.294. It was a contest today !!

Conditions and signals were fine around UK and Malcolm was good copy at the start of the net. It was good to hear from Bill and John G3OKT although he is having some problems with his rig. A good chat about Rotary activities, Bob reporting about a successful virtual District Conference. Bob took a listen on Tues morning 23 March to the 20m net, hearing Bill VK4ZD at 5/5 and Vernon G0EGW 5/7.
