From Nicholas G4HCK
The 20m net was a real challenge today. Conditions were not that great, although I did make contact with Bill so from that you can consider the net was successful. However although we, the net members were experiencing difficulties we got other people transmitting over us wanting to make contact with Bill. Vernon also commented on this poor operating procedure later in the net. I think they were qrp stations !! – I rest my case.
 

0800z - 0900z UK 80-metre Net on 3,694
From Bob G3SZF
G3SZF Bob was net control, joined by
G4LXD Bill
G3JJR John
Conditions and signals were generally good around UK.
John G7OAI had informed me of his absence due to impending poor weather, so a smaller net but an interesting chat including Jubilee celebrations experiences.
Bob reminded all of the AGM on Monday evening.
73 to John, Brian and other listeners.

Those at the ROAR Booth in the HOF gave expressions of delight and joy at being at the convention and seeing ROAR members in person. Those of us not there could only wish and hope for next year in Melbourne.
Club activities were shared as were AR experiences.
Health and welfare of members and significant others were also shared. George K9ZST, a regular check in fell and was seriously hurt requiring hospitalization and surgery. Our thoughts and prayers are for George.
The ROAR station in the HOF is remotely operated from Bill KC4D's home QTH in Virginia so for the best reception antennas should be pointed there.
A good number of check ins and good fellowship.
Joe closed the net at 2102Z
