Topics for the evening as follows:

  • Reminder of the Tabletop sale on Friday night on Canvey, plus the cake testing for that event.
  • Echolink – Lots of testing of the IDA Echolink link, meaning for a while, there was a party going on.
  • Woxun handheld programming. Dean asking whether the “S” or the “V” memory presets are best. Seems that “S” is the answer
  • Could local ham radio operations cause interference to a Sky box?
  • We should stop referring to “interference” instead we should go with “breakthrough”

We wrapped up early due to the problems with GB3DA which have evidently still not been addressed. Thanks to all, and sorry for the abrupt end at 22:15pm
