THE PAST WEEK
Obviously nothing to report from meetings last week, but we did have a couple of nets over the holiday period. There was also a 4 metre FM net on Christmas morning, run by Tony, G8XRX.
Phil, G4UDU ran the Santa Claus net on 80 metres on Christmas Eve. I counted at least 10 participants whilst I joined in, as follows:
G4UDU. G4GNX. G8MUQ. GX1WOR. G4LKW. G3EUE. M0VUE. 2E0RKO. G0BHK. G0NKZ.
The 4 metre FM net, although not a WADARC net, is reported here because it’s run for people in the Worthing area and at least two of its members are also WADARC members. The net commenced at 10.00am on Christmas morning, as follows:
G4NSJ. 2E1EOO. G4GNX. G4JEI. G0DWZ. G8XRX. There may have been others after I left the net.
The traditional WADARC Christmas Morning net was run by yours truly at between 11.00am and 12.00pm on Christmas Day. There were 14 participants as follows:
G4GNX. G3UFS. G4LKW. 2E0RKO. GX1WOR. M0HJF. G0TLU. M0TVV. G3POQ. M0LJK. M0RDV. G4FFE. M6WHH. G4WCP.
Thanks to all who took the trouble to join in the festivities.
