From Nicholas G4HCK
Well the band is definitely improving. Bills voice is getting louder in the shack, so much so the XYL recognises him. Both Sunday and Tuesday was a good net. All we want now is for the skip to favour ZL land. We are almost there just a couple more inches on the map (well on my map !!!).
