Should also have HF for the quiet periods. Maybe work you there too.

Will try and give you a call but I have been laid very low this week, even had to make a 111 call and visit doctors so won't promise anything...

i got a present of Covid from Tricia on her return from NY or I might have popped up

Wx doesn't look good for the weekend, might be out on Sunday in io86jf

Update: packed up early - high(ish)SWR, DVK not keying rig/low activity.

Wonder how it's going John
