DIGITAL VOICE TALK MOVED TO 10th NOVEMBER @ 19:00

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond Allister GM7RYR’s control we have had to move the talk by Allister from the 20th October to the 10th November.

Bottom line is you will not be missing out on the talk as it will be 3 weeks later.

I can only apologise for the change but as said earlier it is totally out of Allister’s hands

See you all on the 10th November 2017
