  • iPhone 3S Echolink dropout… any ideas on why?
  • Favourite bits of shack kit… ATU, TNC, kettle and cat (not CAT) got some votes

The net formally wrapped up at 10:30pm, due to the net controller’s need to get an early night and cup of tea, as well as being hassled by a hungry cat. Thanks everyone.

Thanks to Norman M0FZW to talking over after I left the net at 10:30pm.
