June 2020 Main Meeting - Remote Meeting Tools

We held our meetings over the internet during the COVID-19 lockdown, and we found a few good tools and interesting features- as well as a few tips and tricks.

We think these tools can be useful as part of the amateur's toolkit, so we are going to have a review and try out a range of tools at the meeting.

It should be a fun night as we try to get skype, meet, zoom, google chat, FB messenger, and more going. 

Also tips and tricks to make good use of video. (like the trick of calling in on your phone and only watching via the internet... good trick).
