From Jean-Pierre F1CFA
This Tuesday, we met with Jacques F4FCW on 7106. Usually, we have to meet on 14294...But...
Jacques was disturbed by family duty. He left and so, I moved to 14294 and met Vernon G1EGW ( 55 backward ) and also Bill VK4ZD... 42. I heard Also Malcolm and Nick but a very few...
No mention of Serge F1BFL...Why ?
At that moment, a station was strongly groaning !!!!!
I went QRT and tried to join the ZOOM meeting registered 7h30 Z but I can't join for any unknown reason.

Hello dear friends,
Sorry for this prolonged absence but I was traveling to Slovakia for a humanitarian action for the benefit of an association taking care of children affected by cancer. I returned this Tuesday and here are some pictures of our action. (See Attachments)
