Ten members and one guest participated in the 26th LRS Viral Net on 30th September: Colin GM4HWO (Controller), Peter GM4DTH, Briain GM8PKL, Pete GM4BYF, Melvyn GM4HYR, Norrie GM1CNH, Brian GM4DIJ, Alan GM3PSP, Andy MM7MOX (guest), Mike GM8KCS. Colin and Peter reported that the last items (mostly books) from GM3VLB-SK were now being sold. Pete had visited Blackness Castle as a possible portable site, noting that car parking must be booked in advance. Brian's antenna project was progressing but he failed to report on his Clampometer project! He did mention that the GM3WOJ 3cm beacon antenna was now vertical again. Briain's recommendation for the  week: pinot noir! Norrie didn''t mention it, but he has an article in the current (Oct) RadCom p.73 (how appropriate) on using a golf-bag for carrying portable antenna parts - congrats / see news item below. Welcome to guest Andy MM7MOX in Morningside. Pete reported that "Dr" Brian GM8BJF had finally retired from E.U. with the graduation of his last Ph.D student.

Regret no audio recording of Net 26.
