Conditions and signals were good around UK. Vernon made us all envious as he tucked into his cooked breakfast whilst reporting on some success with the earlier 40/20m nets. He also agreed to give some thought to a special call-sign for World Polio Day. Another interesting net covering radio and Rotary activities. Brian G3LUW later emailed to say that he had been listening by SDR and all is well with them.
