From Chairman Laszlo in Seattle.
Greetings Bill
You probably heard from Don that we have experienced a rather costly transmission problem
with our motor home in Montana.
After it was fixed and we arrived to Seattle I acquired a E-coli bacterium infection and have
been hospitalized for 3 days but the main problem was that I blacked out, fell from our RV
and broke a little bone in my left foot. I am in an air-cast now but I can
We are flying back to Europe on the 5th of September arriving in Dusseldorf on the 6th.
I do not know if I go to Hungary to that Ham fest in September. The same one where John
and Diana participated last year.
I am reading your weekly with great joy here and wishing to be on the air with you all.
Planning to be back ...and on the CT about October.
Till than I wish you good health and stay vertical with the rest of the "gang".

                                          That's all for this week,
