Topics for the evening as follows:

  • How do we get more people to use 2m and help to keep the band alive?
  • What data interface are the guys at Coalhouse Fort using – A £20 interface which seems to work well
  • QSL cards – for special events, will home-printed QSL card suffice?
  • Comments on the Windom antenna – not overly popular according to the particiants
  • Is the sporadic E season about to start?

Thanks to all who joined this evening and for a great net – hope my croaky voice was ok. We wrapped up at 2250.
