Conditions and signals were generally good with unusually low QRM once adjacent continental contest participants subsided.
Bob reported on contacting Bill VK4ZD on the earlier 20m net, he was a very strong signal but others not really copyable.
Another interesting gathering covering personal, radio and Rotary activities. 73s to G3LUW Brian and other listeners.
