  • QSL cards via the Bureau – Saves a lot of money, takes a lot of time (see link below for an intro)
  • Contests – You don’t have to be an RSGB member, but for some contests, it helps
  • Planning permission problems (free advice to RSGB members)
  • Pedestrian Mobile

The net wrapped up at just after 10pm, but discussion continued for a while, and Tom 2E0TNC and Adam M0GWS popped up to continue the chat.
