  • Anyone got any suggestions for eclipse-related songs?
  • Variants of the Monday Night Net disclaimer. Thanks to Andy for suggesting the Aldis lamp version… ;)
  • Hello to Rachel – who wasn’t able to make the the net tonight. 

A busy and fun net – we wrapped up at 10:05pm, so that we could all go simplex and work the MARTS field event simplex. Al good fun experimenting and supporting the activity across the water in Kent.
